    Spider cage issue

    When installing my spider cage the upper right bolt snapped off. The other three bolts seem to be holding it in tight but, I 'm not sure how I'm going to get that fixed.
    I was using a torque wrench set to 10 lbs so but have been a bad bolt??

    If the end of the bolt is sticking out a little after removing the cage, grind it off square on the end. Use a center punch and make an indent in the center. Drill a small hole down the center of the bolt. Get an EASY OUT and tap it into the hole and then just back it out.

    If it was the 1st bolt you torqued? often I’ve found the torque wrench doesn’t release “click” properly and it will over do it until it’s been activated a few times. It’s happened to me before but I haven’t had any issues since being sure to activate mine a few times before use and after adjusting the torque number.

    It’s also easy to confuse foot pounds and inch pounds. I don’t remember what the spec on those are, just be sure you’ve got it correct!

    I ran with three on my rhino for the longest and to be honest I do not know how it broke off, been too long but what I can tell you is stop using torque wrenches on anything but head bolts and rod bolts, way too many people are breaking bolts in all kinds of stuff on these, use an 1/4" impact and know when to stop on these small ones, use a 1/2" impact on the nuts holding the clutches on

    This is a very common mistake due to the tight fit of the bearing support cage. I can't stress the importance of make sure it's installed flush and hand tightening all the bolts first to make sure it's seated flush and then with the transmission in neutral spinning turning the primary by hand to make sure nothing is binding. Bad ju ju can happen if it's not from trashing your wet clutch to ruining the shaft end, etc.

    My 1st run at it I was going to do it all proper like and set the torque wrench to the correct number. When I got to the CVT cover bolts I could feel they were just going to keep turning and the wrench wasn’t going to activate. The smaller the wrench and lighter the torque the less faith I have that it will work.l
    I now use a cordless screw gun with an extension in it, set to click as soon as it bottoms. Then I use the torque spec between my ears. I’ve never had any thing come loose.
    I agree with Todd. If a person considers the material it’s threaded into as well as the bolt size then the brain is pretty good at saying “ that’ll do”.

    This also goes for all the differential drain bolts being stripped out. At least yours broke off instead of stripping!

    Before grinding it off as Budro suggested, see if there is enough bolt left to get a pair of vice grips or channel locks on to manually remove the bolt. If not, your gonna have to do what he said. I'd recommend to use penetrating oil on the drill bit and around the bolt. The last thing you want to do is break an easy out off. Clean it all up with brake cleaner once your done.
