I purchase a used reverse kit for my 98 500 and it is missing the retentioner that bolts to the inside chaincase. What does it actually do?
It cost about 40 bucks so I would like to buy a used one. If anyone has one please let me know.
I was also thinking of fabricating one but I have never seen one. Is it just a block? If so what is it made of plastic/aluminum/steel? Any help would be appreciated. thanks

retensioner?? any pix of what you are referencing?? there is the tensioner that guides the chain.
I could not locate any 98 reverse chaiscase pix.. are you talking about the long post bolts into the chaincase that extends out to the new reverse cover??

It's the piece above the word top sprocket that is bolted to the inside case, but the picture is deceiving.

That is the shaft that the small sprockets ride on..

That's the decieving part of the drawing. It looks like they are the same but actully they are two different parts. I have the shaft but not other flat part. Check this drawing part number 48

It's a little plastic piece screwed into the inner case,not usualy there on a non-reverse sled.

I think I have one or 2 laying around if you can't find one elsewhere

Not sure about all of the rev. kits, but that piece was metal on the 100's I've seen, it acts as a sort of bumper/protector for the aluminum case should the chain touch that area, that is unless your asking about a different part.---- Part number 5222298 item number 37 on the parts list. Retail $35.15
My info came from the parts blowup for a 1998 Indy 500 Classic with reverse.

That is the part number in question. It's item 48 on the diagram above. So this is just a solid block of steel that conforms to the recess in the case with a couple holes for the attaching bolts? I am guessing as long as it is thick enough to cover the width of the chain it should be fine. Perhaps some of the later ones were plastic. Either way I have to get one or make one.
Thanks guys, if I dont find a used one I am going to make one. Sounds like an easy quick project..

Been there, done that... reverse will not work without it. A few years ago I completely assembled a used kit I bought that came with everything except that same piece you were missing. It wouldn't work at all. Put it in and it was perfect. The screws that come from polaris land are self tappers with a tapered head to fit flush in that bracket. I locktighted mine in too.
