Has anyone install a better radiators fan on there t2

Haven't had a need for a new fan yet. I was having some overheating issues but as soon as I moved the radiator up on top of the rear deck the problem was solved.

I really didn't have a choice but to move the radiator. In its original position it was getting clogged with alot of grass and debris while riding. Living on the prairie alot of our riding areas are covered with tall grasses, etc ... I'd have to stop and clean off the radiator every 20 minutes or so.

Do you know what the CFM rating is for the fan?

Are you sure you are actually overheating? I thought I had a heating problem until I had the 'fix' done on the temp guage (I think it is listed on this forum somewhere). I run a turbo at 10lbs at Glamis and have never had an issue..... just a thought.

No I don't but it's fast and has ten blades on it I can put my hand in front of the radiator and I can feel the air The brand name is Spal then it says type va08-ap71/ll-53a Lenny I just found this http://spaladvancedt.../67961/30102042 http://www.absoluter...om/SPALConv.asp Here it is for 105.00 I paid 155.00 Universal Parts, Inc.

Thanks for the information Plumber. I'm going to have to go with a better fan too. Good job on the research finding the fan elsewhere.

What kind of tires are you running in the sand. Is Glamis sand real fine or coarse. I'm in southern utah and our dunes are all fine sand, actually a little powdery in places.

Bummer. It was worth a shot.....

(Lenny - I use Dunestar steering tires in the front and paddles (26x10x12) in the rear, works very well. The sand is 'variable' depending on the weather and traffic, but mostly fine on the big dunes and coarser in the valley's. Not too much different than the larger dunes at Coral Pink.)

Randy how do you like that turbo were did you get it at do you use racing fuel

The turbo was the best thing I have done. It more than compensates for the weight that the Trooper hauls around (compared to other UTV's) and it just "waits" in the background until called upon. It engages at arount 2k rpm and really pushes to the rev limit (6k). I use 100 octane race fuel (available at a few stations around here, not too difficult to obtain).

Scott at Unleashed Motor Sports in Cottonwood, AZ did the install over a year ago for $2.5k.

Does your 100 octane race fuel have a blue tint to it? If so, it's probably 100 LL (low lead) aviation fuel. That's what I used in my 100 HP Rotax motor, Rotax said no lead gas and I thought that was I was getting from the gas station sold 100 octane gas, but I finally got them to confess that it was 100LL avgas which has a light blue tint, Quite pretty actually. By coincidence, the Rotax was on the airplane that I crashed in 2006.

Another interesting thing I did once, I put some 130 octane avgas in my 2 stroke dirt bike once, expecting to have fantastic power, NOPE, when ever I tried to rev up, it fell on it's face, but talk about low end grunt, that was fantastic.

During my aviation training, I was taught the the higher to octane, the slower the burn, to prevent detonation and knocking, and when you consider maximum RPM in a piston air plane engine is on around 2500, and they are short stoked huge pistons, it makes sense.

Kinarfi,

Interesting. I stopped using AV gas from the local airport for just that reason (low lead, not unleaded). I will have to look into the Valero I get the 'Race' gas from to verify what it is. I have heard many horror stories of engines being destroyed on AV gas.

Interesting.I thought a few times about the 100 octane in my trooper but was not sure what would happen.I dont have a turbo its just readily available in Lake Havasu because of all the high performance boats on the lake.

Leaded gas will destroy your oxygen sensors.

Lenny

will 100 octane unleaded do any damage? any ideas on replacement 02 sensors? gotta look for some, I was told to replace if they were the japanese made ones and mine are.

    • Spark arrestor install

      Got my spark arrestor installed, the way they did the exhaust for the turn I couldn't make one fit before.  Only had .045 dual shield on hand but I made it work.  Didn't get enough discs so I didn't put the cap on yet.  Turned out pretty good though.  One photo shows how it was, elbow too short to mount anything to.  Also would've put on top of the tire.

    • Kubota Winch install

      My Dad has a Kubota and recently bought a winch. We have the wiring figured out, but he wants to be able to use it at either end (winch is mounted to a hitch receiver). Is there any type of inline plug that we can use instead of having to basically rewire it any time he needs to use it? It would be a carry it to one end, plug it in and use it, unplug it and put back in the toolbox deal. Any help would be appreciated.

    • How to install a remote reservoir to your stock shocks

      Now that I have a perch on the back of my joyner, I wanted to up the shock pressure. Turns out shocks leak, and the left one was at 50#, and the right at 90#. Wanted to have a remote tank with guage and fitting, both shocks plumbed in to the same tank (I ride pretty even - either 2 or 4 people). If you'd like to see pics of a DIY with no welding or machining, go here: http://www.pauldaytonscifi.com/spotlight.html
