  2. I had the same problem last year and it was due to dirt accumulating around the TO bearing like it was on Kinarfi's. I pulled the transmission and had it looked at and it had some bad syncros so while it was out I replaced the entire transmission and it was not cheap.($1300) Now I have a back up tranny but still waiting on the syncros from Casey at JMC. Syncros are cheap but couldn't get them anywhere. I did the same thing based on Lenny's and Casey's advice and sealed everything off so it doesn't happen again. There are a number of areas where fine dust can get into and get trapped on th
  3. I think I may have a ring and pinion. I replaced my original trooper ring and pinion with the commando ring and pinion as I wanted more low end power. I had put 30 inch tires on and so I wanted more low end. I will look and if I can locate i will PM you. Might take a day or two but will try and locate.
  4. Call Casey at JMC as he will know.
  5. Easiest way to do the manifold is just cut of the flange and reverse and weld back up. No drilling, etc required. I flipped mine and I don't think I gained much power but easier to get to starter and the electrical components as then they will all be up top as seen in Plumber's picture. My bed doesn't hit at all with the stock one flipped. Other way to gain power is match port the intake and also the exhaust as they definitely don't match up well.
  6. Looks great 2Scoops and now it actually might hold in a rollover which is the most important thing.
  7. Will be way too heavy as mentioned. With 30" Mudlite ITP's that I ran for just a little while they did rub some. I didn't modify frame and just had a bit of rubbing so you could get by. I now run 30" BFG All Terrains and not too heavy and they don't rub because the tread isn't aggressive.
  8. Lenny said to go with a Heavier Duty PP and disc but not a puck style disc. I went with what Silver Bullet offers and it works fine. The pedal seems the same and there is about 30% more clamping force from what I was told. The disc is an Exedy which is a good quality disc/material. For $40 I think you can't go wrong by going with the heavier duty set up.
  9. Great. We will come by and see you. Also, you can't miss us as we both have the Trooper T4's. See you Saturday, hopefully.
  10. For those of you in AZ and CA there is a Poker run coming up March 15th in Parker AZ. 70 mile marked course and it is the 29th annual so the guy has done it just a few times. Cost is about $75. Anyone interested in going see attached flyer. Still time to sign up and you can call Rodney to discuss if you can sign up at the event. Should be a good time. I know 2 Joyner Troopers that are going. Myself and a friend of mine. Also here there is someone that lives in Parker that might be going but not sure of his name.
  11. I have never had that problem with mine with both O2 sensors disconnected. I use a Innovate gauge and have the O2 sensor for that plugged into the first O2 port on the exhaust. You can have problems if you don't have the fuel controller in a certain spot at idle. The kits comes with how you can increase and decrease fuel to the injectors and I ran into a problem when I changed my air filter to a larger unit with more breathing capability and I screwed up my settings. I had a problem where just at idle and then even driving I was having some issues. Turns out the fuel controller wasn't alw
  12. Those who thought it was dust and dirt in the housing were correct. However it wasn't so much on the pressure plate but rather dust accumulated around the splines on the shaft that was causing the throwout bearing / clutch fork to hang up and not release. Thus pumping the pedal a number of times would finally release it and now I know why. It was pretty gummed up and that was the issue. Wanted to make sure there were no issues with the transmission and I took that to a shop I know well and they said I should probably replace the syncros while I had it apart as a few of them were looking wo
  13. Only issue now is that the fork isn't heat treated. Should be OK but I didn't do because of the fact that I wanted to heat treat after welding gusset. This is a diaphragm clutch so that fork really doesn't have to push that hard so either way I think we are both safe with it. Not sure if Lenny heat treated his after welding or not. He told me the other day to take a file to it and see if it made a mark while filing on it and it did not which means our forks are heat treated. Talked with Casey at JMC and he says the transmissions are actually pretty stout and built in government factories
  14. You have to make a tool to remove the bushing and pound out of the transmission housing after removing the seal. The kit is $60 or so from JMC and it comes with both bushings, new seal, throwout bearing as well. I was going to beef up the fork as well but consodering the time and effort to remove bushing and then weld a gusset on a fork that is already heat treated I decided against it. I got a heavier duty pressure plate which is probably 30% stronger clamping force than stock and it is probably just fine with the oe fork. I will post what I found out on my clutch problems under the topic
  15. Yea Big Dan it looks like fun but could be costly when it is all over. Not much water to go through out here in Southern CA so I don't even have the opportunity to go through creeks and small rivers or ponds. Thanks for all the replies. I was hoping it wasn't the clutch as I already had it replaced in a pinch last April. Disc only as JMC and others did not have the Pressure plate. I had it fixed quickly and by a former Joyner dealer because I burned it up one weekend and was going on a big trip the next Thursday so I gave him basically three days to replace it. Dropped it off Monday and
