    12' G56 clutch tricks or tips?

    Get the upgrade hydraulic to go with it. The shift boot on mine failed at 50k and was always leaking. Went to polaris dealer with shifter tower amd found a cv axle boot to fit, now no more leak.

    Valve adjustment.....

    I set mine once to .010 and .020 and all i got was more smoke. 06 calls for .010 and .026. Reading this i might change to .020 on exhaust now that i have the compounds.

    Is it ok to have somebody not on the board contact him. I sent the link to a friend but it will not allow him to see the pics.

    Type of steel to use

    Bulk head fittings would make it look clean and professional and if you break a line out side box you can just disconnect and run new with out have to get into the box to change the hose.

    Type of steel to use

    Put spacers between plates on bolts to prevent frame deformation.

    FS ATS 3 manifold AND 62/65 s300

    24 valve 3 piece ATS manifold/ used, can be sandblaster and preserved for you painting skills $250. The turbo is the one I just had a issue with. The waste gate valve broke, so to my knowledge the turbine housing is no good( unless you weld the holes shut) or know how to replace the valves. It is 12cm housing. shaft play is very minimal . compared it to my new turbo. Fins are in good condition. seals are also in good condition no oil on fins. $400 for the turbo. attached is some photos of the issue Turbo.pdf
