Well That was STUPID

Recommended Posts

Well That was STUPID, evidently, my speedo problem and my oil pressure gauge problem were related. I had the connectors for each swapped. One problem is that the speedo, oil pressure, fuel gauge and probably the temp and voltmeter and tach all have the same plug and can be interchanged. I took a black magic marker to one, a red to the other and left one unmarked. Hopefully, I won't make that stupid mistake again. I did determine that we have a 255 ohm pressure sender with a switch in it for the oil pressure lite.

Also, that black wire protector tubing works great for keeping water trapped, as I was tracing the oil pressure wire, I opened a few of the tubes and had water run out. I eventually plan to redo all the wiring and get rid of all the extra length.

Question, Should I pin this so we can all share our stupid stunts? That way we learn from each others mistakes.

      This is a carb model not EFI it was in pieces when I got it. I got it running by replacing the fuel pump had to bypass this little reservoir thing I can’t find how it goes back in please help. Machine runs good but I have fuel coming out of the drain on the carb. This is a pic of the reservoir thing thanks

      Hi. 
      After i put on my Yamaha r6 carbs on my Joyner 650, my distributor failed, it stopped working. Then i put in a new one, and that also failed. It happens when i run a few minutes at max speed, about 60mph. Its not the rotor or cap, its something else. 
      So, is there something i can do to make it hold? What could be the problem? Or is it just bad luck? 
      Is there anyway to rebuild the distributor to make it better?

      Hi,
      Don't know much about anything utv but I figured out my fuel pump wiring harness needed to be replaced. Installation looks pretty straightforward, plug into fuel pump and plug in the two pigtails. Question is: one of the Pigtails on the old harness I am replacing had a splice in the black wire and attached to a bolt on the engine. Is this necessary?  Is the black wire, I'm assuming it's the ground, grounded at the other end of the pigtail?

      First post here hope it is in right place as I get familiar with sight. Have a 2003 550 mule,kaf-300-c7. Put on a new carburetor  as old one was in bad shape, jet was frozen in body, although it cranked and idled fine. The problem is: it will crank and idle fine BUT with a slight movement of throttle it wants to die and when more throttle is given it picks up and runs fine. The old carb. and new one does the same thing. The adjustment with the plastic stop does no good. At a loss here. Could it be the fuel pump, as I know nothing about these kind of pumps. any help will be appreciated.
       Thanks, Jim.
