Welded Middle Drive Support Brackets Rhino 660 2004

Here is my repaired case at the middle drive gear for my Rhino. You can see the before and after pictures. It is not perfect, but it gets the job done. I did have to do a good bit of grinding due to the tolerance of the middle drive gear.

I also added a Benchmark 686 kit that went on flawlessly.

not to rain on your parade but you missed the most important part about welding the middle drive my friend, you should have done more research before you turned off your tig machine........all you did was fix it back to stock, so hopefully you had proper penetration and a lack of porosity, but even if you did its only as good as the stock middle drive tower was originally as you didn't tie it into the side or the bottom of the case, all you did was repair it and not improve its integrity and strength...cross your fingers, but you should have done a heck of alot more work to make it a stronger structure..I've welded a bunch of these cases and when you're in there to do the welding alot more fabrication work should be done to make it 3 times stronger,not just back to stock, then the middle drive interferance fit on the billet plate should be remachined back into the case to make an oem style snap fit into the towers so you don't have gear shift or movement which will cause another failure...my two cents

07 rhino,camo,bilsteins,camshaw 727,HSR carb,custom clutching,camshaw spindles,custom cage,bed delete,all go fast rzr eater! 714 883 6171

Cam, I think you did...lol...I'm sad reading it...lol
