    Wow, thanks for all the great references. I will let you know what I find in a couple weeks. Cheers

    She's a runner! Waiting on some special tools to get here as I have some tuning to do on the clutch. Clutch stalls the motor a bit high, so I have a feeling it's all caked with mud in the clutch sliders. Runs good though!

    Travis, any advice on how to check for these conditions? I'm not much of a mechanic but a fast learner.

    Getting it back together. Engine final mockup and assembly done. Needed to bump the engine to the passenger side about 1/2" to line the CVT up inline with the original location on the old engine. The 670 has a longer crank snout where the pulley seats. Just waiting on some parts for the carb (this setup uses a 1.5mm needle and seat for use with a pulse pump), and the moto carb to stock throttle arm cable,- should be here tomorrow - and we are ready to fire. Starter cranks, all wired up. I only ended up with a kill wire for now, (blue wire from UTV, black/red wire on the motor) , and the starter (white wire ), along with the fused hot wires. Will hook up the oil sending unit from the old engine so I have the oil light.

    It doesn't really matter what anyone says. You'll find hardcore detractors and hardcore supporters of any machine. Joyner has made good progress in their quality control. I bought a used 2014 Renegade (the first year they put the 1100cc engine in that line). I like it. Same engine and transmission as the Trooper. The transmission is a 5-speed w/reverse. 1st gear is a "Granny Gear". John Deere Gator 825i uses the same engine as the 800cc Renegade uses. There are several other "off brand" UTVs using the same engine (Tomcar, Roketa GK-45, some models of the European Ford Escort to name a few). The Chery engine is widely used in South America, Africa and of course Asia. The Trooper and Renegade uses an automotive style drive train (clutch and pressure plate), not the CVT (with belt problems if abused). If the UTV you are considering has a 3-cyl 800cc (812cc) or 4-cyl 1100cc (1083cc) gas engine, it's most likely the Chery engine. I'm not a fan of the CVT transmission. I see a lot of YouTube videos where people have blown their CVT belt (always a good idea to have a spare belt with you at all times). You'll also find videos of well-known brand name UTVs and ATVs with blown belts, broken axles and other broken parts. You have to know the limitations of any machine you are considering buy.

    OK Travis first thanks for responding. Purchased tester and coils appear to be good. Removed line from pump to carb and looks like no fuel getting to carb. I guess it looks like fuel pump.
