VERY TRUE hose clamps will cause problems
In the videos I saw, they used regular pliers to remove the stock clamps, and the new boot came with the cam-type boot clamps. The weather is supposed to be crappy tomorrow, so this should be a good project to get knocked out. I also got a replacement contactor for my winch, so that will get installed as well.
I'll price the bearings at the local auto parts store as well...I found the Polaris branded/packaged bearings on eBay for $27 each, shipped, so it was already a big savings over the $45 each that my Polaris dealer wanted. I'll need a second set of bearings eventually (I have 2 identical Sportsmans) so I may get the second set at the auto parts store.Hold it straight, get someone else to hit it with a heavy deadblow hammer, as for bearings,can get them at parts store, rear are federal mogul #510013,
