Well, the Indy is still in the shop. New shop, new mechanic. He said that it
was running on only 2 cylinders. He installed new "needle & seats & plugs", to
the tune of around $150. But, before I could take it home, he said that he
noticed 2 big cracks in the Drive Clutch. He popped the cowl to show me two
good-size splits, as well as 1 hairline crack on the inside of the clutch wall.
He said it's called the Drive Clutch (NOT the Driven Clutch...all i know is
that the cracks were on the part closest to the front bumper). He said that i
could probably drive it okay, but it would eventually split more & cut the belt
& cause all kinds of nasties. He quoted me $300 for a new Drive Clutch (not
incl. weights & springs). So, I ordered the new Drive Clutch, which will be
installed tomorrow (Thurs).
Any comments? Am I getting ripped off?
Strange how my usual mechanic didn't notice the cracks.
No sled....vacation coming to a close.....only got 1 good ride in my three
weeks vacation. Rain, rain, rain.....not much snow now.
