Hello all. I am new to this forum and new to SxS in general. I recently purchased an 16 Odes Dom 800 with the issue of a prominent knocking noise at idle and it’s very jerky in forward and reverse gears. It does not sound like an engine knock. I bought it cheap knowing about this problem with hopes of it being a cheap and fairly easy fix that I can do myself. Would a bad belt be the cause this symptom? I’m looking for a starting point to begin diagnosing and fixing the problem. I recorded a video of it but am not sure if I can post it on the forum. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I'll post pictures next week on my rebuild, which I have completed successfully...👍
It says someplace limited slip rear dif. On my hoist both tires turn at the same time, same direction. The problem I have is that on hard pack, they stay locked up and I'm digging up my driveway on sharp turns. I'm sure in the summer on turf, I'll have holes in my yard. It acts like a solid live axle on a small ATV.
There's a wire running to the rear diff that I thought was the lock up for the rear end. But it's locked all the time.
Question, how is it supposed to work? Is it supposed to slip under hard turns etc?
I'll have to do something to disengage it for the summer, options, thoughts?
Thanks in advance, Dan
I have a 2021 Coleman 400 from TSC. Got it slightly used with 20 hours on it.
Started from scratch with oil change
Iridium Spark plug
Is there a diagram anywhere that shows where all of the grease fittings are at to make sure that I don’t miss any?
On the rear brake it seems to be engaged slightly when moving. The parking brake is not set and released, do I need to start looking at the caliper to see if it can be adjusted to open it slightly or is that an E brake adjustment? Not sure and wanted to get opinions before I start jumping into things I don’t need to! It’s just engaged enough to make a slight squeak.
Any suggestions are most welcome.
