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.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      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.
