It's been leaking VERY slowly over the past couple years, just had to add a minute amount of brake fluid every few months. Now i have to i add about 3/4 of a cup every 5 days.
i took the rear tire off, where it is leaking from, cleaned up the outside of the drum and it looks like the fluid is leaking from where the "outer" drum meats the inner drum, #41038. guessing its the brake cylinder inside..... any other thoughts. I made sure the brake line is tight too.
Need a new primary clutch. Center shaft is scored so not really repairable (although I am going to see if my tool and die maker brother can make a replacement part but that'll take too long to be a replacement option.)
Dealer price for replacement is over $750! seems VERY high relative to clutch prices for other UTV's (more than double).
is there a more reasonable alternate?

Unusual topic, I guess.
I'm unable to walk and just had hand controls installed on my new Mule.
I'm trying to figure out how to adjust the brakes (freeplay, hydraulics, etc) to increase "responsiveness" of brakes. I need them to engage more quickly. In other words, I have to really lay on the hand controls hard to get the brakes to activate. The brake pedal (via the hand control) has to move quite a distance before the brakes start to engage (and I am unable to lock them up). I guess I need to make the brakes more "touchy". The hand control system is far from perfect, but it's all I've got.
