Is that a part you can have made at a local machine shop?  If it is that might be a faster way of getting a replacement.

Like Rosanne Rosanana Dana says, "Just goes to show you..it's always something" Be happy, you caught this "chain" reaction early.

Well no cat out of the box today  :-[
I wanted to go over the sprocket arrangement and when I remover the Left Main drive sprocket I found the Shaft had been Brazed up and The bearings ran Lose !
I Could have left it as it was running BUT I DON'T THAT KIND OF WORK !!  8)
So Off to find a replacement and put new bearings on it.
Wow you just don't know the work that go's into these machines to make them dependable !!
So back to the drawing board  ::)

Hi Wedge
Let me know when it is time to sell, As I mentioned before my older brother had one when I was about 10 or 11. and is about 6 hrs from you. And it would be babied for sure. Just something for him to drive down the street once in a while and a conversation piece for his shop. He makes anything and everything out of used wine/whisky barrels from furniture, dog beds, bars, tables, gas fire pits. if someone can think it he can build it.

Do you still have my personal email addy?

Thanks
Larry

I Really like the Cat but It will NOT stand up to the kind of riding I do !!
So I would rather have someone who also likes the amphicts own it a respect it as a true Collectors 6X6 !
Plus I Like to Build them as much as I LOVE to run them !!
Looking at an ATTEX a Farmer has sitting in his shed ?
So we will see ??

Give it a good shake down run but don't try to find the next weak spot.  ;D  Enjoy it while you have it.

Well I put the tranny back together after I put new seals on both the outer and inner shafts. I checked everything for run out and we are good. Just waiting for the sprockets to get here then back in it go's
While I had the chance I Reset the carb float and changed some fuel lines around. I am Hoping the guy didn't mess with the jets as it looks like it was out ? I Hate when stuff is messed with before being test run !!
So We will see on Shake down run #2 ??

I wish I had a MAX 2 again ! Also I was hoping to try another ATTEX  but just haven't gotten there yet.
I picked this CAT up as it was a good deal and always liked them but really want another max. Just every one I look at is ether Beat to crap or Way over priced !!
