  1. Travis' Mule 550

    Need some ideas. the "left main bearing" in the crankcase, where the shaft sticks out, where the flywheel mounts, in the crankcase it has a non replaceable bearing. If it is wore too much, you have to replace the entire crankcase. Im going to measure it later, (from a visual it doesn't look too wore) but i was wondering if i could buy a ball bearing and put in it IF it is wore past the service limit?

    Before Crank un-installedPiston INSTALLED after honing.Crank installed after honing. Last pic is honed. Kind of blurry, took it with one hand. It looks better in person. It may not be professional quality but im 99.99999999999999999% sure it will work. Did better than I thought i would. So now, only ONE more obstacle. the crankshaft axial play adjustment BUT I need someones opinion ( i took the piston back out afterwards) not sure if you can see it, but in the picture with cylinder honed, it's almost right where the glare from the light is, and on top of the cylinder directly across from the spot, it looks like the hone didn't get ruffed up. any ideas? out of round cylinder, cylinder wore and needs bored??
  3. Need help converting

  4. Going to try to measure the rotor clearences on the oil pump. manual says: (Use feeler gauge) Standard: Less than 0.14 MM Service Limit: 0.3 MM and i cant find a 0.14 mm feeler gauge. ????? i think, if my math is correct it comes out to .005? 5 thou?

    Need to get y'all a picture of the honing job Ted's did. A work of art! When i went there, the machinist asked me what grit stones i was using, all i new it said was "medium grit" from the parts store. He said it was too rough for honing. and i might have broke or wore my rings pre maturely.

    Yes, that is perfectly fine.

    Yes it has brake lights and tail lights in one. It should turn on when you flip the light switch, and the brake light comes on when you press the brake pedal. Most models have a spring attached to the pedal that goes to a switch just above the pedal. And as far as i know, they don't have a horn,stock unless one is added . Do you mean while the engine is running, or just when you turn the key to the ON position? because the key has 3 positions. Off, On and Start (Engine). Welcome to the board and Congrats on your purchase of a great machine. If you need any parts look here:
  20. Once i get the cylinder honed, the only remaining problem is the crankshaft shim.. And i have a few questions. 1. In the manual it gives a solution to the problem i'm having of the crank NOT spinning when the cover on (by hand). 2. And i just can't wrap what's left of my brain around the instructions, i guess use a caliper to measure? (instructions circled in red) (my brother has been helping me, he's fairly knowledgeable with this stuff, but more Diesel engines than anything) and he says to use a dial indicator set up, and to use this* as a spec for end play. and that would help us get the measurements needed in picture #2. 1st pic is the runout. But is it the same as crankshaft end play? ๐Ÿค” 2nd pic is of the instructions (solution) to get the correct shim. I don't know, maybe this makes sense the way i wrote it. Thanks, Travis.
  21. I've noticed the Massimo MSU-500, The Cub Cadet Challenger 500 (550?) and the Benneche Bighorn 500 all look the same? Does one company make them and they just put their name on them?
