So just wanted to update you guys. First off, thanks a bunch for the help! So my buddy worked on it for a while and when he got everything put back together, it was really hard to change gears and he was afraid the something was bad in the transmission and he wasn't comfortable looking in there. So I took it to Princeton Powersports in West Virginia. Very good people, very nice and helpful. Got it finished in less than a week and they replaced just about everything in the clutch area. The mechanic said the whole problem could have been from the belt being on backwards slipping on the pully and creating heat. He also said it was a good, strong running machine and shouldn't give me any trouble now. When I bought it, the guy said that he replaced the belt so it is possible and my buddy has a wildcat, which the machanic said the prowler engine is in backwards to a wildcat. So $1250 later, it runs great so far but I haven't run it for any length of time to make sure it doesn't happen again. Thanks again for the help and advice!!
