I went back out, to look at the front hubs some more. I took one of the hubs off and I don't see how it works. There is a splined shaft with some funny looking bearing on it. I don't see how anything grabs onto the hub to turn it. Does anybody know how it works? It is apparent that the wires don't engage it.

I own a 300 Polaris sportsman with the same front suspension. I also have the factory service manual if you don't figure out how the front hubs work. Also if yours is chain drive like mine that should make our project much simpler. Let me know if you need any information and good luck with your project.


You posted this while I was also posting mine. I think that if you have a diagram, or something to show how it works it would help me immensely!

It DOES engage electrically, but I don't know the mechanics of it, other than those round pins held by the spring....they act like cam locks against the hubs, just like many electric starter over-running clutches in motorcycles & ATV's.

ummmm! What are you trying to do here?? 4 wheel drive tractor? Not sure how this rig is gonna help? Most would use two rear ends and articulate in middle. I was thinking you were gonna put PK sheet metal over this chassis, but guess not! I don't get it, sorry!

There is a guy on Red Square WH forum that made a real wide heavy axle on his smaller tractor, then put a pair of rear wheels/tires on it. He bumped out the rear ones too. Looks kinda neat, sorta like an off-roader, but isn't 4x4 or nothing.

I am going to use the front end drive components from the four wheeler, and put it onto a PK. It will be more tractor then four wheeler. If you go to the link in my first post about the brainstorming, there is some info and sketches there.

I'm pretty much booked till tomorrow evening but will mark this so I don't forget and you could send me a personal message tomorrow afternoon as a reminder. The book is pretty comprehensive so I hope the information your looking for is in there. You didn't see any type of coil in the hub? I can't remember if the wires run all the way down to my hubs or not but they just about have to I would think.

I took off the override bearing (I think that is what it's called) and the splined part of the axle went into a seal, I could not see behind it. From what I took off, there was no coil in site.

From looking at it it looks like the coil would be near the end of the shaft (left of picture) unless the shaft has the coil in it??

Ok, I took off all of the parts I need. It came apart very easily, as a matter of fact! It took me a little over an hour to gets my parts off.

After I had it apart, I decided to go a little deeper into the front hubs. There is no coil in there!

There is not even a place where the wires come out!

I am really starting to go :loosing_it:

Ok I'll walk out in a little while and see if I can give you some help. Have to eat first and go from there.

I don't know where the wires went! I think they are there... Just for the sake of confusion.
