I've had this happen a couple of times now. First time i noticed it was when i was running it on the stand in the garage. I started hearing a squealing sounds from the drive shaft area. Couldn't really put my finger on it. It almost sounded like it was coming from the drivers rubbing on the track. I doused it down with wd-40 and it went away. Now this past weekend when we were on forest roads, we came into town with no snow at all. Ran the ditch for about 2 blocks worth with no snow and i started hearing the squealing again. Sounded pretty bad. The slides were hot as heck, was putting melted slide on the clips. Not sure what is getting hot and squealing, i am wondering if it is the clutch side lowwer bearing? Not sure, still original bearings over there, new in the chaincase. I don't want to tear it apart and replace if that is not it. Anyone had this happen before?

Sounds like bad news...You should've replaced bearings on both sides once you got the skids and track out. :dunno:

IMO, It's the best if you had replaced everything new once you're working underneath of your sled. In that case, I'm speaking of Driveshaft bearings, Idler wheels/bearings, Hyfaxs and revalving shocks to keep your sled in top notch running condition. :div20:
