Folks: Thank you for all the help you guys give!! I am reaching the end of the total rebuild of the 2014 Skandic WT with the 600 Ace. Having a lot of fun, learning a bunch, and looking forward to winter.
The "Rebuild" is a 2014 Skandic WT 600 Ace. The Primary Clutch was toast but I was able to salvage the arms.
I do have a brand new 2018 Primary Clutch, intended for a 1200 Renegade.
The New Clutch's Fixed Flange is the same as the 2016 - 2018 Skandic 600 Ace Fixed Flange, I can buy the 2016-2018 600 Ace spring for a reasonable $13, swap out the arms and .. wondering if transforming the new clutch is that simple..... Which is why I am asking..
So some questions.
Will the 2016 - 2018 generation clutch work on the 2014 600 Ace engines, IF I can work out the other details? Or is this attempt doomed from the start?
Assuming the clutch will work... What details need working out...? Is it as easy as updating the Arms, Spring and possibly Rollers? The arms in the new clutch are 749. The arms from the original clutch are 716, and look like they would fit in the new clutch. Other 2018 600 Ace clutches also call for the same 716 Arm, so thinking the old arms would work.... The spring is different and easily updated. The 600 Ace spring for the 2018 vintage clutch is a very reasonable $13. I started to get the feeling it might work.
The concern started when I looked up the the sliding flange part numbers. They are different between the 2016 - 2018 600 Ace and the 2016 - 2018 1200. Despite the different part numbers, can I still use the new sliding flange with the old 716 arms and buy a 2018 "600 Ace" spring.
The "Rollers" on the new clutch have flats, hex shaped. Assuming I make the above changes, would I need a set of new round rollers as well? Or will the Hex "rollers" work just fine?
Am I missing something? Or is this a path that I just do not want to go down? Should I keep looking for a 2014 vintage Primary and spend $300 plus?
