  1. I have had a few 150 Etons. They are still running and parts are available online. They are not fast and only 2 wheel drive but they get me (78 yrs old) thru the woods (on trails).
  2. Is that flex clear coat available ?
  3. Damn. That access is great - wide open, not going in thru out of reach service caps.
  4. Valve setting tool didn't fit my '05 Grizzly 660 - not enough clearance for the socket part into the access hole. The exhaust valves are not handy to get to either.
  5. Frank I would think it might affect friction, but since it is a wet clutch, probably no odor.I should heve thought of the rear brakes tho
  6. Thanks Frank I believe it was there before, but I'll back off the rear brakes and see what happens. How would an auto oil affect the Honda clutch ?
  7. I bought a 2003 Recon from a kid that beat it – all plastics cracked etc, When I replaced the rear brake the inside – axle, rear oil - were clean and in good shape, so I think Honda won the kid vs quad battle. It shifts a little clunky (I made the adjustment) and after riding for a while I get a hot friction material smell I wonder if he used the wrong oil and if any damage was done.
  8. there are a couple of inexpensive metric thread pitch and hole gauges out there
  9. Good writeup. I'd add that guitar strings are smaller than the torch tip cleaners. There is a video on ultrasonic cleaners that shows me some new tricks.
  10. Thanks Frank I found while starting to pull the buffer/balance drive gear that outer edge of the gear moved out far enough to get the chain by it without dumping all those lovely little springs. I had also removed the tensioner side chain guide. I stuffed the timing chain in, put the balance gear and plate back in place and done. Somewhere I found that that the old camshaft gear compression weights were just pressed in, and swapped them onto my new cam gear.
  11. Do I need to remove the balancer driven gear to remove the timing chain. If so, how? Thanks
  12. 06kfx440 Past that now- it did crank with the plug out. I pulled the valve cover. The cam gear is about a quarter turn out of time by the dimples when the timing mark is right on. I have ordered a cam gear and timing chain and am about to go into the stator, rotor and starter gear. New territory for me. Tahj
  13. I am looking to see why my 2005 Grizzly 660 won't crank. I have set the valves but suspect a loose timing chain. When working to remove the valve cover I found a "cap tensioner case" - parts #25 - #299 on Babbitts site. The cover seems to bridge the valve cover and the cylinder head. What the hell is it and what surprises will I find if I remove it? Uncharted territory for me.
  14. Thanks Frank Some engines have cam cover plates, but I think I have to pull the valve cover on this beast. Do you know if that would get into the water jacket? I['d like to avoid that.
