    But only to know how it works: How to change the shaft? Unmount the engine and disassemble the whole gearbox?
    Thanx, seems to be easier than I thought. Clargo Garage made lots of helpful videos for XV1700!

    In this episode we remove and replace the "mid drive shaft" (the shaft that goes from the transfer case to the drive pulley for the drive belt). This episode...

    Here is the process I took when changing the mid shaft over the weekend . I hope this helps someone in the future . I was unable to find any literature on it . The bolts I removed are marked in blue . It was honestly relatively simple . I only downloaded the manual to get the torque specs .

    Glad to hear this but you should still consider looking for the parts for a proper repair to have on hand just incase lol.

    Yes Duke, the way you and Dave suggest will surely only get you home, if the shaft wasn't so mangled I would agree. I think the OP is considering epoxy again, Lol.

    MikeyC, I agree new parts is the proper way. I've seen some pretty amazing stuff done however with modern tech/chemicals so given the right combination it might work in some circumstances.

    That is what the epoxy was for. Previous owner filled with epoxy and the epoxy had come out. I have heard of that being done with JB weld but the proper way would be to replace shaft and pulley.

    If your planning on welding, then I fully agree with Dave.
    With the nut torqued tight, it will keep the shaft tight against the inner races on the bearings.
    I, myself would not weld my pulley, unless it was to get me home.

    I agree that heat transfer through the shaft is a problem. That is why I prefer stick welding in this situation. The heat is concentrated and if cooled immediately it won’t have time to migrate up the shaft especially with the pulley acting as a heat sink and absorbing a lot of the heat.

    Good point .... I changed the title.
