yea a lot of things will fall out wen u split the case. wen they said use a pressure washer were they referring to washing the outside or the inside? the inside you can not wash with water. that willl do a lot of damage especially if it is pressurized

a couple people said to split the case and go to the car wash and spray the inside of the motor. i figure that would mess somethin up. what should i do. i split the case and started messin around kinda lookin for dirt but didnt really see or pick none up. only one thing fell out when i took it apart but that was easy to put back in.

I wouldn't use a pressure washer on the inside, that is like using a sledgehammer to drive finnishing nails. Since it is most likely pretty clean in there. You just need to make sure there aren't any pieces of dirt or metal shavings floating around in there. A regular hose sprayer will be fine, just make sure to remove any loose fitting parts so you don't lose them. Otherwise, I would leave the bearings in there unless they need to be replaced. The water wont hurt them, just blow everything out with compressed air when you are done and let it dry. Then apply a coat of oil to everything before you start putting it back together. Very impoprtant that you make sure everythign is in the right place, even something as small as switching two very similar washers around can keep things from operating properly or operating at all for that matter. Also very important to make sure all gasket sealing surfaces are clean, flat and have no gouges in them.

      I just recently bought a 1994 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x4 from a buddy who had the wheeler sitting in his garage for 7 years. I got it home and fired it up pushed it out of the garage and tried to shift it and it wouldn't shift. First it would click like it was shifting, but the wheeler wouldn't move and when I hit the gas it revved up like I was in nuetral. After trying some more it became stuck in 1st gear and wouldnt shift at all. But it later broke loose agian and acts like it is in neutral again. I took the motor off the machine to make it easier to work on.After asking friends they were convinced it was a clutch problem but after opening up the casing for the clutch I don't see anything out of the ordinary and am concerned that it may be a transmission problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.
