View Full Version : Lt80 Wont Pull Its Self

01-25-2007, 02:06 PM
it acts like the clutch is slipping, i pulled the little side cover off and the belt tightens up on the clutch and it turns just fine, but it wont pull at all.
has anybody had any trouble with the rear pully assembly??

i dont think anything is locked up in the rearend assembly cuse i can push it just fine.

any ideas??????????????

Plugged carb or plugged pipe.
That's my first thoughts.
When on a block, does it rev up and seem to run fine?
Put your hand over the exhaust and see if it's blowing out good.
Either way I'd clean the carb. :)

the engine starts good and revs great, it is like it is slipping on the rear pully assembley.
it just had it running and even if i push it, it still wont pull its self.

OK, I'll take it as the exhaust comming out alright.
Now I'd guess that there is a clutch issue. It could be a front variator problem with the rollers all flat and bound up, The rear clutch sliding face comming apart is a good possibility (been there).
