Primary Clutch 1995 Formula Z

Hey All;
I am new to sledding. this Formula Z being the first I have owned. I bought it last year and the thing runs awesome. My problem is the main bolt holding the primary clutch on backed off and came out. Many pieces go bye bye. The clutch is obsolete from ski doo and comet clutch has recently gone out of business. So new is not even an option. I can buy one from a guy who lives 2-1/2 hrs away, but I want to be sure it will fit and work. Was there any difference between a 1998 583 and a 1995 583. I have the 95 Formula Z 583 with RAVE and the clutch is from a 1998 583 but I am not sure the sled it came out of. Any help or input is much appreciated as my wife's sled is running great and I am not liking watching from the sidelines

Thanks
Ben

They will all bolt on, you may just have to change the spring and ramps to get the performance you want. Put the spring from your old clutch into the new one.

Thanks SEG, I will see what is salvagable from the old clutch but like I said i don't think many parts are left. The ramps are there but I beleive the spring go bye bye as well. Not much left except for the housings.

Just an update. Picked up the clutch, it was in great shape. Removed the old one, or the parts that were left anyway. Bolted the new one right on and away I went. Belt engages at around 5500rpm and the old girl launches like never before. I didn't get a chance to run it all out to see what revs are like at the top end yet. Figured I better not push my luck.

Just wanted to say thanks to the forum. I have learned a tonne just from reading all the posts on here.

Cheers
Ben
