2020 Can Am Defender 6x6
It looks like it is available from Partzilla for $9.99.
I just got me this for servicing the clutches. Clutch Holter Tool Can Am⇒ JAY PARTSNothing in particular. I just want to have the tool on hand in case it comes in handy. Plus it gives me a little project for the lathe.
Chances are I might never need it but the idea of finding TDC using that tool is appealing.
I have serviced the one way bearing twice now using a block of wood to hold the clutch. But using this tool is also an option for holding the primary clutch when removing the outer sheave.
The reason I was asking was because the secondary spreader tool I use has a torx bit on the end. I used it to lock the 400 at tdc on the crank. I was just gonna tell you what the thread pitch was and the diameter of the shaft where there is no threads and then you could test that and see if it works to lock your crank because I dont use that little tool. I just use my secondary tool. If you had to put it on the lathe and take it down a tick more.I already have the secondary spreader bolt and a clutch holding tool.
The objective of my request was to see if anyone could give me the dimension of the tip of the tool mentioned in the title of this thread.
I appreciate people trying to help but all I need for now is just that dimension.
The manual tells you to install the tool then remove the nut for the rotor, then reverse order to reinstall. Unless you can use a tool to lock 2 gears together. But according to can am. That locking tool is used to loosen and torque.My shop manual shows where, when and how to use this tool. I would expect the tip to be a close fit in the 'hole' of the crankshaft. Logically it only needs to be finger tight and I would certainly avoid putting any radial torque on the crankshaft.
Using this tool to 'hold' the crankshaft is an option but I agree that it is not the preferred or most practical way to accomplish that for normal servicing of the CVT.
I misunderstood your point the first time maybe.but torquing the fly wheel has a lot of torque.
thats why now I only get the proper tools lolI misunderstood your point the first time maybe.
If you are saying that here is a danger of deforming or shearing the tip of this tool when removing or installing something that puts high torque on the crankshaft then yes my sphincter would pucker too.
