I installed a Hotrod sheave a couple weeks ago and ended up losing a little on the top end. I talked to James and he said to check and make sure none of the weights moved when I installed it.
Well I pulled it off today and everything is okay, but I did find a washer/spacer on the back side of the collar. Is there supposed to be one there?
It had a machined sheave when I bought the Rhino so I am wondering if I should put it back together without the washer.
I put a call into James and waiting for a call back, so I thought I would check with you guys here in the mean time.

Thanks for any help!

Rick

what was old speed what is new speed ?

old utvinc sheaves with round weights will get a lil more top end i think they say ,

the hotrod sheave uses OD sliding weights but should still get close to same top speed, just alot more low end grunt they say - mine should be here soon ima try one, :)

Old speed was 68-69, now about 60.
Do you know if there should be a washer/spacer behind the collar?

From the factory there is no washer/spacer. Some folks would add the spacer to regain lost low end from oversize tires or the first generation OD weights.
