I had been running a HSP 36S which is 48/36 any way it has worn a groove in the back under the snap ring and is no longer usable IMO, it is not even.

I have R32 50/34 and T 1 42/36/34 laying around thinking of trying either of these tis winter, as some of you know I have 98 XC 600 BB with a 136 RipSaw, any rec. or thoughts on these 2 helixes or should I try something else?

20 seconds on a lathe will clean up scoring, then rebuild with Polaris shims. IMO the T1 is no good (& I don't think it's meant for the wider belt) and the R32 has a odd transition change that may make the sled hunt for rpm at trail speed if I remember correctly. If the clutching, when in good condition worked, fix the scoring.

I don't think you will be happy with either one of those helixes in replacement for the hot seat helix. The Hot seat helix is more aggressive than both of those helixes you mentioned. You will most likely notice not at hard of a holeshot or midrange pull. The T1 will probably work better than the R32, but you still won't be happy.

If it was me, I would see if the other helix could be repaired, if not, buy a new one and sell the other 2 to recoup some of the cost.

No comparison, fix the hot seat, or just add another .030" shim to take up the space. Erlandson has some rubber washers to take care of the electrolysis, which is probably what caused the wear. Put a touch of grease under the washer before assembly.
