Dumb question, but, when you don't actually own a snowmobile, not so dumb. It's a long story.....

Can anyone confirm the direction of rotation of a Polaris clutch please ? Looking from the motor output shaft, is it clockwise or anticlockwise ? Thanks

Phew, counter clockwise it is, thanks guys. I'm using a Polaris clutch in a gas turbine installation, if you like, take a look at www.users.zetnet.co.uk/gas/turbine.htm

The T62 turbine, used as an ground power generator in a number of military applications, if due to find a new home in a Czech road car, the infamous Skoda Estelle.

The primary will work efficiently in either direction, the engine rotates the clutch counter-clockwise on the sled. For a different application other than sledding, it will work clockwise as well. The sheaves grip because of the push from the weights and that is not dependent on direction. (The Reverse on the new sleds requires a different secondary that can rotate clockwise)
