I have started building an electronic capacitive fuel sender for my Trooper. I was wondering if others would like to have one made for them. The hardest part is the capacitor, it has to be hand made, Mine is made of two sheets of aluminum, 7" X 16-18" and 6 3/4" X 14" and rolled up together separated by 2 pieces of bird netting, that stuff you put over your fruit tree to keep the birds out of your fruit. I checked the readings as I filled a container with gas and the change was quite linear and repeatable. I believe that if you were to start with an almost empty tank, you could add a gallon of gas and mark you gauge, add another gallon and mark your gauge, etc, etc. I plan to put my sender in the middle of my tank which will keep it from changing as I go up hill, down hill or on level ground and the design can be made to not show sloshing. If you think you may be interested, let me know. Before you ask, I have no idea what it may cost and if you want, I think it will fit into the existing sender hole instead of putting it in the center.

Thanks but I am passing because I am getting rid of my gas gauge entirely. Since my gas tank in the front, I am going the way of an old tractor. Moving the filler tube to the top of the tank. Will just open hood, open fill cap & look inside.

EDIT Kinarfi -- Sounds like the most fail safe method available, If we had resettable trip odometers, That would be a way to go, just so many miles in a tank of fuel.

      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.

      I have a 2009 Trooper 2 that sat in garage in Vegas for 2 years and fuel wen bad.  I replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump and drained and put new fuel with stabil.  So here is where it gets good I am getting fuel to the pump, pump is making noise like it’s working but no fuel will come out.  Anyone else have this problem?  The only thing I can think of is that I had to put the old outlet on the new pump, I cleaned and blew it out best I could. I can’t use the one from the new pump due to it being threaded.   Any good suggestions?  I checked fuse and relay, I even hot wired the pump.
