Anyone taking their Troopers through any deep mud

Recommended Posts

Needing some Info. Two months after i got my trooper i took it through some pretty deep mud and in doing so i packed the the pressure plates full of mud making it impossible to actually activiate the clutch. Cost me a good 600 to get it all fixed and replacement of parts. Know i have seen plenty of youtube video and pictures on different forums of people just burying their troopers in the mud, so my question is, is their any modification or any type of snorkel that i could buy or make myself that would allow me to actuall go through some mud without worrying about damaging my trooper.

That's a tough one. The clutch assembley is not sealed from the under side. Only thing I can sujest is that you use caulking and filler strips to seal the openings so nothing can get into the clutch. However, this may be open somewhat to allow air in to help keep the clutch cooler. That makes me think that you may want to figure a way out to snorkel some air to it and out another snorkel. I would put something like a small small heater fan on it to force the air through.

I have had that exact same problem. but I cleaned mine by backing into a river and let the water clean the clutch. I have been thinking of a way to fix the issue too, but it involves pulling the motor and building a plate to seal the bell housing off. then I am going to put 2, 1.5 inch ports on the top of the bell house for circulating air. I talked to a guy at a clutch shop and he said that the turning of the clutch inside would make its own convection type air flow so a fan shouldn't be needed but if it doesn't work a fan can always be added.

After I posted about using a fan, I thought too that the clutch might make it's own circulation. A baffle plate placed correctly between the in and out air ports inside the bell housing might assist a lot in using the dlutch to circulate air. I like your idea of running it in water.

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them. 
      Backstory:
      Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

      Anyone have an outer cv joint ball cage? Mine is cracked up. Other than that it's a good axel.
      Please let me know

      Hi,  can someone please verify if my timing marks are correct?   
      The images are of the timing marks at TDC.  the Crank/Cam marks look right on, but I was surprised to see the cam's timing marks completely off the page.   I was thinking I had it 180 out somehow because that's the symptoms I'm experiencing when trying to start it.   When I'm cranking it, and trying at full throttle, I hear some light (muffled) backfiring that sounds like on the intake side.
