Hi there, i bought a e380 touring E cheap from a guy who said it won't stay running.
This is my first snow sled, the learning curve is rather steep....and expensive so far.
I can't even get it running to find out whats wrong.
I got it to sputter on ether in the sparkplug holes.
But pull starting is very hard for me.
Installed a battery but starter was frozen, so I installed a starter to discover the bendix doesn't reach the ring gear.

Found a chunk of shattered clutch sheave in the belly pan, looks like the clutch blew up and he swapped in a used unit with a smaller diameter ring gear.
I can find the correct ring gear used. 84 tooth, 417222859.

My question is, if i buy the the ring gear will it fit the clutch I have ?
Or do I need a complete primary clutch.

Thanks for any help.

Yep thats the sign!
The next one is a hole in the piston!
Again go to the swap meets and find the parts you need
If your jug is bad just have it replated, I send mine to US Chrome in Wi.
I have sent them over sized pistons and they can bore it and replate it over sized!
I have had a 580 bored out to 625? or so
Comes back even better than new!
Do NOT just replace rings!
Always replace piston as it comes with rings!
The Piston is what is worn!
