Question is, after looking at the service manual it mentions a nut on the bolts but the diagram does not show them. (around page 8.8) I bought the bolts today but they did not come with nuts. Not even sure how to put the nuts on since its between the motor and trans and its tight. I removed the aluminum mounting block that bolts the trans to motor and its wore on the mating surface(from being loose) so I need to buy a new one of those too.
I am sure I need to pull my clutches so that I can replace the drivers side bolts and align the distance between shafts. Anyone know if the trans would get damaged during the bang and metal sound I herd? I really don’t want to reinstall everything and find out the trans needs to come out now.
This is on my 2012 xp900 that I put a 2014 xp1000 motor in 1500 miles ago. I remember putting it together and thinking this is a dumb way to mount the motor/trans and sure enough….
