  1. Polaris finally got back to me. Owners handbook all the way back to 2003 says 60 ft lb. Polaris to correct to 30 ft lb without hitch, 40 ft lb with hitch. 5.13 50 ft lbs conversion error (54 Newton Metres), Polaris to have manual publisher correct. Overtorquing eccentric will cause bearing failure. Glad to help.
  2. Broke down and bought shop manual, measurement for both chains 3/8"-1/2". Problem now, Owners handbook says torque to 60 ft/lbs. Shop Manual says pg. 2.34- 40 ft/lbs., pg.5.10- 30 ft/lbs. without hitch, 40 ft/lbs with hitch, pg. 5.12- 40 ft/lbs., next pg. 5.13 50 ft/lbs. Dealer doesn't know. Polaris Help Line won't help with "consumer technical questions". I figure Grade 8 7/16 x 20 bolt will take 80 ft/lbs, maybe I should go with 45-50?
  3. It wouldn`t be the first time the owners manual was wrong. Says front chain should be 3/16-1/2". My previous Polaris 6x6 tension was 3/4-1 1/2". Anybody know for sure? Like to keep my tranny in one piece.
