    2003 mule 3010 gas
  1. not really - i purchased a new fuel pump after all the messing around with this and that but i never put the fuel pump on and its doing ok so far but i bet it will show itself again eventually - the gas models must be a breed of their own cause i have yet to figure this one out

  2. i have read several topics about similiar problems but would ike to ask if the tank itself is vented can this become clogged somehow - if i get out on the road and run for a few miles as fast as the mule will go then it dies out on me - its as if the fuel pump cant keep up because if i stop for a few it will corret itself and run ok then - i have adjusted valves and cleaned tank new fuel and filter new carb and it runs great other than when i open it up for a few miles - is the cap vented or can the vent for the tank be stopped up- are there vented caps for these tanks or is this cap supposed
  3. thanks rick - i spent all day looking and wanted to order it before the day was too far gone to help with shipping time - i oredered if from cheap cycle parts - they were not the cheapest but they had all the gaskets i needed and i wanted to save on shipping by getting everything from one place - well if i had it to do over i would have ordered from one of the ebay guys - seemed very nice and helpful and his price was by far the best but at the time i didnt know he had the gaskets as well - if i would have gotten his email soon enough i would got everything from him - and i think i will do so
  4. Eureka -- well good news bad news -- instead of using wd40 i used the carb cleaner to spray around the carb because after cleaning the carb inside and out removing jets - all looked clean but i still had the problem of idling up - so i sprayed the carb cleaner around and there it was - around the throttle shaft where the spring is and the black plastic rod that actuates the throttle shaft it idled right up - did it several times to make sure that is where the problem was - now i dont understand this because the mule has very few hours on it and i cant imagine it being worn out - regardless i d
  5. rick i dont think so but it does have a bypass of some sort to keep the fuel pump pressure from building up - a valve that allows the fuel to bypass and go back to the tank - it keeps the fuel pressure low enough to the float valve can prevent fuel from flooding the bowl - i dont have a guage yet to check that but i have ordered one that goes inline - the only idle adjustment is on the fuel/governor linkage and its ok - before i started messing with the carb it idle just right so i have really stirred something up in the carb and just dont have it all out is where i am leaning right now unles
  6. i took it out today after putting cleaned carb on and same thing - it starts out trying to rev up on its own - i disconnected the arm coming from the governor and it made no difference at all - it still revs up so i drove it around a little and no change - reconnected the governor and parked it - after revving up if i turn the key off several times just before it cuts off and turn the key back on it may idle down but i have to do it several times for it to work and sometimes it backfires a little - but thats the only way to get it to idle down --- if the engine is idling and you give it gas -
  7. well i cleaned and blew the carb out really well and the only difference now that i can tell is i have a really clean carb - it even looked clean inside when i took bowl off and i did catch all the jets holes cracks crevices that i saw - when i sprayed the carb cleaner in everything i saw it come out other places so i feel pretty good about it - my problem now is -------- well i actually cleaned carb twice because i didnt think i got rid of the problem the first time so in the mean time it started idling up or even revving up on its on - it would do this in gear or in neutral and woudl j
  8. thanks plumber for the reply - where did you get this painless dual battery controller ---- maybe a link or site address -- that sounds exactly like what i am looking for -
  9. so far its no better - i will wait until i finish this tank of gas out and will do it on a weekend when i have time to get it all done at one sitting --- thanks for the info too - one more thing i wanted input on -- the battery - i plan to put a bigger battery in it but i want to do it different - i bet there is 4 or 5 wires connected to the battery for different things like the dump bed lift and i would like to put a master cut off switch on for the battery and one for a winch that i want to put on at a later date - what i want is something i cant find exactly - i want some type of co
  10. i have a 2003 gas 3010 and i want to add a few things but before i do i would like your opinions or suggestions - so far i have put a front and rear hitch on it and i want to add a winch on a plate where i can use it in the rear or the front - all the wires come with it for both hookups - oh by the way ebay has 1 left if anyone is interested- here is a link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390283603790&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT - its a front and rear taht sells for 400 bucks and they have it for 139 but its specific to 3000 series mules - i
  11. i just purchased a low hours 2003 mule 3010 gas - i swear its the best thing i have purchased in a long time - i realized that after hauling wood with it yesterday - i purchased it from the original owners sons - owner passed - it had been sitting for a long time and bad gas wouldnt run very well - it had been back to kawasaki shop earlier for the same problem bad gas - they put new tank on it and i assume cleaned carbs and it ran fine after that but again they left it sitting - then i got it - i emptied tank out and the tank looks brand new inside - so i put new high grade fuel in it with som
