  2. I drive it slow in low but that does not use much fuel at all. Baby it would be the right words.Steering turned fine but pulled on front axle shafts.
  3. I bought those by mail order from Power-sports Alaska. I have had those 3 or 4 years now. Good questions. I have the older model mattrack litefoot m-3 utv 3500 lbs. 2" tread.They sell a newer model now. It has both advantages and disadvantages and I had to learn to be real careful with them on that buggy. Upgraded the steering box, installed the new tracks but after one tiny test drive went back and put steering bump stops to limit the turning radius.They try to turn very well but the Joyner axles/CV joints were not made for the wider tracks. The tracks go great but are very low speed ,as it s
  4. They unscrewed the piece holding the key in the dash,pulled it out to under the dash in to the inner fender well, ripped the ignition key and had bare wires then just connected wires that let them start and drive it.I have it so it is in low gear so they stole it fast but the getaway must have been at a turtles speed. It took longer to drive it away than it did to steal it.
  5. It was the wire harness ground wire. It bolted to the transmission bell housing which is alloy metal not steel and the engine and transmission are in a way just rubber mounted. The answer was so simple I did not think of trying it first. I took a ground wire off a Subaru battery bolted it under where the wires were bolted to transmission housing as ground, then scraped the paint and at first just clamped it to metal,later bolted it down to the frame steel. Works fine now cycles up starts runs fine. The one wire it needed was a new ground wire from frame to transmission. Now I can change the
  6. Yes no store bought meat. I can get food but I am trying to find a tube of [good] silicone and some thicker gauge wire and that is real hard. My family owns 4 Joyner's that's why I can steal parts for now. We have 2 T-2's and 2 R-4's.I cheat a little I guess I do have broadband over satellite and cable TV. I love my iPhone now we have service near here. Having the web has changed my life [for better or worse I am not sure yet] but I would never get to hear from such helpful people with out my laptop. Sub modern bush living.Thanks it looks good [the Trooper] and I take very good care of it so i
  7. sorry I said 1999 it is a 2009 but anyone who knows Joyners must know I was wrong,I cant change the post title. I have a small heater core and a fan for inside the insulated cab. Kinarfi asked what part of Alaska I am at,South Central Alaska but way out in the woods along the Iditarod trail sled dog/Irondog route. The closest store for food is 32 miles down the trail where a Gallon of milk is $12.00 hamburger[frozen] is $ 9.00 a pound,a gallon of distilled water costs $7.00,I could not live anywhere else despite the downfalls here I love it. I sure dont have the problems you guys have I have
  8. Thank you for having this site there is not another one this helpful thanks guys. Yes Lenny I do get the signal,yes I agree it must be one stupid wire,and yes thanks I will install new ground wires from the engine. The main ground wire I see is hooked to a bolt that goes into the aluminum transmission housing. This from the beginning has not seemed to be the way to ground the wire harness so I will work on that.One wire that's what I have been looking for one wire pinched or worn.I agree.I do visit the lower 48 states but cant wait to get home I guess Alaska gets into your heart and mind afte
  9. I checked carefully both the new computer pins and connector. The old computer has a rattle like something came loose inside of it. I have checked all three relays for continuity they work fine so far .I say that because that is where all power seems fine.With just a hot lead to one side of the fuel pump it ran both the fan and the fuel pump.I keep rechecking fuses and the relays every time I use the jumper wire.No real fuel pressure but that may be air in the line. The fan sounds awful but spins fast enough.I don't need a fan up here but I know that it is part of the complete key on cycle so
  10. I have also spent a long time uncovering every place the wires are covered and checking the wire harness for worn or pinched wires. It was not easy to do. Just the computer was $700.00 bucks plus fed ex $85.00 I don't know what you might pay but that's not cheap and helped but did not fix it.No crank before computer replacement.
  11. Tested from front and back of fuses/fuse box more than once and have installed new fuses and new relays.That was the first place I checked then rechecked after computer install and again just to make sure.It had some mud in it but no wires burnt or disconnected. Of course a heated garage is there another kind? The garage is as warm as my house. I don't want to start changing wires as I progress forward it has run fine right out of the crate,maybe later.I have not tried a ground wire to the computer.It seems to me it is rubber mounted not grounded for a reason but I will try anything thank yo
  12. Yes Spark when cranked NOW not before computer was replaced.Sorry about the power but I understand. Also this is inside a heated garage and has been since it was returned.
  13. I thought the same that's why all relays were replaced with known working ones,4 -three behind the seat and one under the dash . Am I missing any? I looked for pinched wires.The fuel pressure my be low because the line is full of air I will fix that when the pump works like it should.Thanks for the encouragement!
  14. My Trooper was stolen police just said 'it was in the edge of the lake'. What a bummer but I did get it back. I can not get the fuel pump or fan to cycle with key turn.I have replaced everything I could using parts from my other T-2 which used to run until parts swapping as listed I have changed:key ,aftermarket Warn Winch control box,every relay,every fuse, battery, computer box. Before I changed these I had no lights ,no crank ,no fan ,no fuel pump, gauges did work but that was it when you turned the new ignition key. The aftermarket Warn Winch would click with key cycles before replacemen
