I have a 2001 SWT Skandic and I use it to groom dog trails. Last night while pulling a light drag, it felt like the belt started to skip. Sure enough when I opened the hood, and removed the shroud, it looked to me like the clutch pulley when engaged by centrifugal force wasn't "clamping" down tight enough on the sides of the belt to engage it. The belt, to my novice eyes, seems to be in very good shape. My dealer says repair times are up to a week or more, and I thought maybe it is something I could handle, but don't know a whole lot about CVT systems. The dealer mentioned something about the secondary clutch, but I never saw that activate because the belt was never engaged fully. Any suggestions? Are there adjustments on the forward clutch to allow it to travel further along the shaft and engage more solidly?
I'm kind of desperate because I volunteered to help a junior sled dog race tomorrow and they are counting on me and my machine.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
