    Intake Manifold, Bottoms UP

    Thanks for the info ,flipping the intake to reduce filter to throttle body length and to gain room in front of the radiator . Plan on installing oil cooler in front of radiator .A little worried about intake gasket availability and glad to here most have made there own gasket

    Intake Manifold, Bottoms UP

    Hi to everyone ,and happy thanksgiving. I have a question about flipping the intake on my trooper .Are you able to reuse the intake gaskets? Or did you fabricate your own gaskets or order news ones .

    Trooper cranks but wont start

    Hi , I believe that joyner system diagnostics are obd2 compliant,they should have standerized trouble codes . It would be pretty easy to wire up you can buy obd2 connector just need power,ground data line terminals added to the connector and use a generic code reader .With some research Iam sure we could find a laptop based program and cable lead to read actual data streams

    Bang Noise

    Hi all, just finished a ton of upgrades on the trooper . Front and rear differential upgrade kits ,snorkle, fabricated automotive style tanks straps (mounting tabs broken), steering gear loosiness fix (thanks Lenney), longer bolts for rear trailing arms and boxed in trailing arms ,installed rubber insulators on all skid plates (fixed 90% of all vibration rattles) , and installed muffler from a 885 Harely. Went riding in the Uintas for the weekend a noticed an intermittent bang noise on hard torque situations in 2wd only . Don"t know if it has been there all along and did'nt here it due to the loud exhaust or is a new problem . When I was loading it to come home i noticed the 4wd actuator was making noise like it was trying to move in and out by itsself. I looked closer and found when I had the front diff out, the cheap Chinese electrical connector terminals for the 4wd actuator had pushed partially out of the connector. I pushed the terminals back in, the actuator now working normally . Plan on replacing connector with higher quality connector . I guess I won't know if this fixes the banging noise till next ride.

    Another test you can perform that may help you isolate your compression problem is a cylinder leak-down test .If you have an air compressor and , If you are using a compression tester with a (screw-in hose) adaptor , you can usally clip your air hose from your air compressor onto the compression tester hose and apply air pressure into the cylinder .Making sure the engine is rotated so all 4 valves are closed (compression stroke) ,listen for air escaping (if it is coming from the intake you have a intake valve issue,if it is coming from the exhaust it is a exhaust valve issue, if no air is escaping remove the oil cap ,is air is coming from inside it is the rings hope this helps

    sorry fat fingered , compression values should increase with oil added verses a dry compression test id it is a ring problem it stays close to same may be a valve issue

    Hi I would do a wet compression test ,this will verify if it is worn leaking piston rings or a possible a valve issue .jusy add a little oil to the combustion
