    Starting a shop for Joyners

    The credit card thing might have been a coincidence, I also understand that. We need a dipstick and brake pads, including the emergency brake.

    This is likely ours he's talking about here....we have a 2008 Joyner Trooper T2. We took it to Rich in Nov 2017, with the understanding he would start on it right after the first of the year. Finally after many communications and giving up, we retrieved it unfinished the first of Sept - and the buggy was cannibalized. The engine had been rebuilt, but he did not do the rebuild himself, because he didn't have a mechanic. The engine was rebuilt, he told us by NAPA, however it does supposedly have his custom cam in it. BUT, it's not holding good oil pressure. Still working out what we're gonna do about that. There's supposed to be a warranty on it, but we're not hauling it back down there so the warranty can be honored. He's 5 hrs away from us, and who knows what might be taken off it if we take it back down there. AND, he has no mechanic. As we said, we retrieved it unfinished. The engine had not been installed, the clutch and pressure plate had not been installed, and Rich told us himself he's too old to do the work. There's a Joyner T4 sitting there now that was there when we dropped ours off in Nov 2017. And now there's an Oreion sitting there he says he's working on. Again, he has no mechanic. We retrieved our Joyner the first of September, and Lloyd and our son spent 2 days finding parts, installing the engine, and putting it back together to the point they could load it on the trailer and bring it home. Rich still owes us parts that were not there (gaskets, ignition, etc) and parts that were taken off that should not have been. He claims he has no knowledge of what was taken or why. We don't question his knowledge - but he is ultimately responsible for parts that were removed that he cannot account for. The ignition was gone; the steering column was dismantled and parts missing. And that only scratches the surface....in a nutshell, if you are considering getting Silverbullet to do some work for you, I suggest you do a shop visit first and make your own decision from there.

    Good heavens.....Matt the wrench did not exaggerate...AT ALL.....speaking from experience.

    I'm a little gun shy using Joynerusa - the one and only time we ordered parts from there, someone also got a new Apple Ipad at our expense. My credit card was jacked. We used to also use Silverbullet, but right now getting parts from him is like pulling teeth.

    Most of the folks on here do their own work on their Joyners, but finding a reliable place to buy parts online would be a great help!

    '2008 TROOPER T2 WOULDN'T START

    Thx for the reply Jeff. Lloyd can give it just a little throttle and it starts as well. Seems kinda strange. Will check compression for sure. 18k kilometers on the buggy, no dust now but there was when we first got it before we upgraded the air filter. Lloyd changes he oil regularly, cleans the air filter nearly with every trip out to keep dirt out of it. Not foolproof, I know.

    '2008 TROOPER T2 WOULDN'T START

    More starting issues - it seems the buggy doesn't like cool mornings for a change. It will whirl but not start if its close to the freezing mark. After the day warms up, it will start with no problem. A simple pull with another vehicle and it will also start with no problem. New plugs, new battery, etc have not seemed to help the matter. Any ideas gang?
  10. Has anyone purchased a toy hauler? If so, what did you buy, for what kind of toy, and are you happy with it?

    Dominator tires from SuperATV

    Update - got about 2 years out of the second set of tires - again the front ones started popping holes where the lug meets the carcass. Although, not nearly as bad as the first set. Still undecided what we will do next.

    '2008 TROOPER T2 WOULDN'T START

    We had rain 5 out of 10 days, and high humidity the rest of the time. Lloyd had to use starting fluid to start it when we got home; something we didn't take with us. Then when it did fire, it blew black smoke like a diesel. It's running now, thankfully!
