Ok I got both clutches off. Got the back side of the housing replaced.

—-BTW—-
When you buy the new back side of the belt housing from Can Am they do not include the O-rings that seal the back side of the housing up against the motor!! Almost had a big screw up there. Luckily I realized it as I was reinstalling the bolts for the housing backside.

So I got the o-rings out of my old housing. They seem to be in great shape so I cleaned them up a bit, greased them, and installed them in the new housing half. Hand threaded all the mounting bolts back with with a layer of RVT around the head lip of each bolt so they all seal up good. Then got the secondary clutch reinstalled. It was kind of a bitch to tighten in with a torque wrench as the machine kept wanting to move. But I had my GF use the torque wrench as I held the clutch. We got it to the required 52 ft-lbs. now I’m on to reinstalling the primary. What do yall make of these surfaces?

Is that rough surface that almost looks flaked supposed to be completely smooth? And what about the groove on the other half? Should I sand that out?
