Default 1987 g2 clutch and belt problems

hey guys this if my first time on a forum and i am really excited about my project car. I just got a 1987 yamaha g2 running and lifted for 400 bucks and drove it ten miles to my house to show my girlfriend. When i got there i looked at the engine and noticed i guess the main drive belt was completely sideways and thats how it runs. The belt is tore up but i did not notice the belt like that before i left. Is this a sign of a bad clutch or am i missing something? If it is what are good brands to purchase and do i get the front clutch and the back sheeths and a spring also? Sorry new to all this golf cart stuff so i am sure i am not using the correct terms. Does anyone have a service manual they will be willing to share over email. Its my title name @yahoo.com.... thanks everyone

Clutches can wear holes in the sheaves, and the holes will tear the belt up. I get my belts at a local yami dealer, plenty of places online have them.

ok will get the camera later on when the old lady gets home.... Maybe we can figure out what kind this is too.. Has a trunk in the front and have not been able to find anyone else with one like it lol.. for 450 though not a bad deal with a lift kit already and ran fine. Drove it 10 miles to my house.. oh well just a tune up i guess...

yea this is a fiberglass front i think its custom made by yamaha i have the title and the vin matches 87 g2 thought someone else might have one. finally got it open today pretty cool i dig it.. the front all fiberglass and molds into plastic at the dash. tore the motor down today valves looked good just open up the zirc fitting on the rear sheeves and nothing but powder came out. i really need a service manual becouse i think i am going to have to tear this thing down and really go over everything been abused for twenty years lol. a little project for myself.. still thinks its a good deal for 45o though lol. If anyone has a service manual i would really appreciate one. thanks.. consalvo

If the rear(secondary) is binding bad the drive clutch will peal the belt onto its side and eat it up. Pull the driven(rear) (gota love all the names for the same doohicky) and take it down. Go to the the top and there are parts books.

the very last sticky by Sprid will get you there.

you know doom i figured thats what it was i pulled off the zirc fitting and black powder came out.. actually just came back in from messing with it. figured the real sheeve wasnt sliding as it should and with no lube that would cause the belt to pull sideways. i was just about to rip into it when i called it a night. thanks bud will keep everyone posted tomorrow....

hey guys just showing you my knew project here is the before pics going to redue the whole thing only thing slowing me down is the rear clutch sticking but going to rip that apart soon. I pulled the belt off and show you how it was completely flat. Also if you look at the front its a trunk really cool, can fit an 18 pack and ice i bet... hope you like consalvo
