(Arctic Cat Home) (How The Clutch Works) (VTC Mechanical Page) 1
Snomobiles have undergone vast technicalogical advances in the past twenty-five
or so years, yet the clutches have remained basicaly the same with only small
advances in proformance and versitility.
We will solve this problem by designing an adjustable clutch weight that
will be controlled by cable or hydraulics to directly controll the progressiveness
of the primary clutch system. Though we will be working with an "Artic Cat"
clutch, this design will work with all "Comet" style clutches which are used
by the majority of the leading snomobile manufacturers today.
Our Goals For This Project Include:
1) External adjustment
2) An increase in proformance
3) A relatively simple design
