Once i get the cylinder honed, the only remaining problem is the crankshaft shim.. And i have a few questions.
1. In the manual it gives a solution to the problem i'm having of the crank NOT spinning when the cover on (by hand).
2. And i just can't wrap what's left of my brain around the instructions, i guess use a caliper to measure? (instructions circled in red)
(my brother has been helping me, he's fairly knowledgeable with this stuff, but more Diesel engines than anything) and he says to use a dial indicator set up, and to use this* as a spec for end play. and that would help us get the measurements needed in picture #2.
1st pic is the runout. But is it the same as crankshaft end play? 🤔
2nd pic is of the instructions (solution) to get the correct shim.
I don't know, maybe this makes sense the way i wrote it.
I'm new here and would appreciate any help. I have an old mule 1000 with bad engine. I'm told the engine and transmission share same lubricating system. True? If so, I should be able to remove engine only. I'd like to install a different one and use same cent clutch and original transmission/dirrential. Any help or info would be great. Thanks!
I used to work on snowmobiles a lot (before moving south) and their exhaust pipes are held together with the same type of exhaust springs. I have a couple different "spring removal / installation" tools, but none of them are quite like that. You might want to patent that bad boy!
Hey everyone, new to the forum and I'm looking to buy my first UTV. My budget is about $18,000. I live in South Florida so mostly sandy wooded trails. I'd also travel to the Carolinas, Georgia etc.
I'm tore between the 2017 Yamaha XYZ 1000r ss se and the 2017 Polaris RZR 1000 XP.
I searched the Yamaha forums for the pros and cons and basically it seems the Yamaha is geared towards dune riding unless you put in a heavy flywheel and some other mods.
I searched the Polaris forums and I hear about how they don't stand behind their products and they tend to break often.
This leads me to my dilemma. I like the Yamaha because I've owned them in the past (atv, dirtbike) and they have been bulletproof. I like the Polaris because it seems more suited for the landscape I will be riding in but I'm worried about longevity.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
