    They said " we got it now, you just shorten every word and add Y or O tothe end of it. LOL.
    Sound about right. Or a cross between a Brit and a Texan - proper English with a Texan drawl.

    Looking sweet as usual K not enough movement between the two to rub on that little cut out..
    Thanks.
    In the process of opening it up a tad more and getting the windows for the CVT IR system dialed in so I can remove the cover w/o taking the sensor arm out.

    Put it on for checking clearance and realized the belt reading sensor is looking at the back side of the cover. Oops....
    New window is in place now but not large enough yet so that’s first thing on tomorrow’s list.

    I’ll find out if it hits during the shake down runs.

    Clutch cover complete.

    The belt temp IR sensor (window in the top, middle) can now see it's target and I can put the cover on over the CVT reading IR sensors and arm w/o issue and swearing.

    Have to say that I'm really pleased with this piece. I'm getting better with each piece I make - always satisfying to see progress.



    Just needs bolts in the clutches and they're installed.



    Worked on the wire harness routing/mounting a bit on the back end while I was there.
    The little billet standoffs that I made a while back use a 2mm bolt to secure them. Tapping the holes is a very tedious, careful process and thus far I'm 15 - 0 when it comes to successfully tapping the tiny holes. (not broken a drill bit yet either).



    Made this handle for a small drill chuck and have been using this tool for quite a few years now - mainly on R/C stuff:



    For once I'm very pleased with the results:



    The sled engine will retain it's electronics and charging system. I figure this is the easiest and safest way to keep things working. It charges the battery, runs the system, has enough spare power for some small components.

    I've added a stand alone alternator to run the big stuff - A/C compressor, winch, electric power steering, lights. All that stuff is up in the front of the MR chassis so I was going to have to run a large gauge wire from the back to front from the battery, which isn't the best of things. Got me thinking - I have an alternator, high load stuff up front, etc... Why not just put a secondary electrical system up front? I can tap in off of the battery, have short leads, the alternator wire is the only thing I've to worry about now.

    So I'm in the process of making a battery box that fits up in front of the shock bulkhead. Still have to add another leg and make the hold down. So far the battery fits like a glove - almost like the mount was made for it.





    The challenge this makes is that the entire area that the battery and compressor are located in is going to have to get shrouded and insulated. Can't have the hot air off the radiator blowing on the components all the time.

    Gonna work up front for a bit and wait for my supercharger to come back from repair. Once I get that I'll get it installed and then stick on the rear suspension. It's SO much easier to work around the back part of the MR w/o the trailing arms and stuff in the way.

    I'm following the UTV standard of a mix of metric and SAE too. Weird what will be metric and what will be SAE on an XP.

    Front battery now in place:

    One of these days he's going to figure out bending a washer 90* and welding it to the frame will do the same thing with way less effort.
