2005 Arctic Cat 400 Axle replacement

Recommended Posts

Guest Goatman

I have a 05 400 cat and did not notice that I had torn a boot untill it was to late. The outer joint is shot. How do the axles come out? Is it a c-clip that has to be removed first or is it a pin type that can be removed with a slide hammer. Love the site. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you change one joint , change both on the same shaft. I have done this when helping friends change them out. On a car or truck It I change the entire shaft. Also I would change both because my luck would be to tear it apart 2 days later to change the other joint.

I priced out the shaft online and it looks like for about $200 I can get the entire " Half-Shaft" is what the part is called. Can I assume that this part is both joints and the shaft? Thanks Buck. Is the truck in the picture yours? I also have a 1978 Chev full-size with a 400 horse small block 400 and a 9" lift, lots a fun. I'm not sure why but if I can't get it stuck, I don't think I am trying hard enough!

    • RZR 800 axles , RZR 800s axles are different ?

      I am sorry to ask such a stupid question but I would like to share my story.
      I bent my stock axles and bought 2 rear rzr 800 axle shafts from Hexautoparts.com.These " RZR 800 cv joint axles" I received are different from mine,the length and splines are different.
      So I am guessing whether this seller shipped the wrong rzr axles or I bought wrong ones.After check I made a mistake my ranger is the RZR 800S,the rear rzr axles I bought are for RZR 800.I will return the wrong RZR 800 axles to exchange correct RZR 800S.
      If I haven't overlook "S",this trouble should not have happened and could have been completely avoided.Hope riders who have RZR 800 or RZR 800s take carefully when need to buy parts or accessories for his rzr.

    • '03 Vinson rear U-Joint

      Hello.  I'm wondering if I have to split anything to replace the rear u-joint on my ATV? Will the driveshaft pull out of gearcase, or does case have to be removed and split?

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
