Picture cleared up a misconception I had! I was unaware that the 1000 had an oil pan that unbolted! The 700 just has a sump cover! Keep going Bubba! Looks like the end is in sight!
Hope it runs great for you.......Secondary clutch shaft has some in an out play. My other engine doesn't have any I looked online an the thundercat 1000 have that problem they say up to a quarter of a inch so that's what kept me from having it drop in ready. prolly another 30-45 min worth of work she'll be ready to drop in. Goin to run rotella t6 5w40 a few times to flush the engine real good an change the filter a couple times. The engine I got heads were trashed looks like it got sunk but kept all the water an mud in the cylinders but I put my heads Pistons new rings an gaskets an everything sealed up just need to finish a few little things an I'm goin to shoot for having it turn key ready by this evening had a lil cold front come in an no heat in my shop so I'm goin wait for it to warm up a lil before I go out there.
Hi Bubba, How did this build go? Did you make any videos on Youtube? i think I am going to have the same problem?? still just opening up our 1000.Tried country cat not Babbitts but I went ahead an ordered them thru the dealer $237 for everything needed if they were going to replace gears in it. i Called a bunch of places an they said u just gotta buy each gasket individually an piece it together guess a lot of people haven't had many issues out of the arctic cat 1000 or I would be able to find more info on it I've been takin pics along the way might try an make a couple videos to put on YouTube maybe someone could use down the road
