600 clutch

Post by 1965 Hus-Ski » Sun Dec 09, 2018 8:18 pm

I was wondering about the secondary clutch on the 600’s that is hand adjustable. My quess is power or speed depending on where it’s set at ? Also does anybody have a measurement from the center of clutches ( primary to secondary)? I live in south central wi. So not much deep snow riding. Thanks.

By screwing the adjusting knob you creat more resistance for the secondary to open. This translates to higher engine revs to get the clutch to start opening. So yes....you loose some speed to get power. This is the same for the 200, 200-A and 400 which all have the same clutch.

Also it is recommended NOT to screw the adjusting knob in more than 5/8" .
As far as the centre to centre measurement I've not found an actual measurement in any Hus-ski manual other than the 444 with the Salsbury 500 clutch which is 10 1/4"
As Barrie says 200, 200A, 400 and 600 use the same clutch so on my 200A with the secondary clutch set for the correct drive chain tension and the muffler centred in the exhaust port and approximately 1" deflection on the drive belt the centre to centre measurement I end up with is 10 3/4". So depending on the length of the belt you are using, that measurement will vary.
Also there is an offset measurement for these clutches. I've included some photos. I hope this helps.
