Chain Case Question

I have a 91 Prowler. I had the belt off today and noticed a good bit of rotational play in the Secondary/Jackshaft/Chaincase. All most a 1/4 turn is this normal? I would think it would be less than that.

Thats way too much. Make sure your chain is adjusted right if it has a manual adjustment. If it has an automatic adjustment than you have some problems in the chain case. If its the auto ajustment type then it could be something as simple as the tensioner spring broke or came off.

I have removed the auto tensioners and just replace it with the manual! Open the chain case! There is a plug in the tunnel to drain it! It holds 8 oz without rev and 12 with!

It has auto tensioners is there one or two springs on it for the reverse chain case? Also are the top chain gears the same for the reverse chain case and the non reverse chain case?

Ok I have more questions. So do I have to drill and tap case to install? Does the bolt then press on the existing adjuster arm for tension? The parts file you have shown is for a non reverse chain case will this work on the reverse case I have? Looks cool and is cheaper that the springs.
