Not sure who looks at this site or not, but it has some really good articles. I just came across this one about welding out on the trails without welding gear & thought I would share. This is so easy and it never occurred to me, but no doubt some of you know about it.

The link is http://utvweekly.com/index.php/2009/12/emergency-trail-welding/ and make sure you watch the video.

Cheers Mike.

I forgot about that.I saw an old truck mechanic do a tempoary fix on a fork lift where I worked when I was about 19.He pulled a large semi truck up next to it and hooked up to the batteries on it.That was the only time I seen it done and I completely forgot about it.

    • Joyner's and all buggy's with C/V axles. the first articles

      Silverbullet Over the years i have replaced hundreds of C/V axles.So i was going to post a how too maintain  the c/v joints.These joints are a part of the axle that takes all the abuse Under the C/V boot the C/V is  highly verstal joint with cage and balls.When the c/v axle is running it gets hot.So the cheap Chinese grease goes bad.It loses its lubricating property.And then turns in to a black gunk.The picture is what your c/v joint looks like now .So i recommend you clip off the metal clamps slide in the boots to the center of axle if they are in good shape.Then start getting some brake clean and a brush and rags because it going to be a mess inside of unit.Let everything dry so no cleaning products are left behind.It drys up quickly then get c/v boot clamps autozone.Then repack with a good grease we sell desert gold grease.This makes the c/v joint run 20% cooler than a new c/v axle .If a boot rips it has to be replaced immediately! NOT PRETTY LOOK DOWN!

    • the stock cage is weaker than I thought

      So while building my cage I made one bend a couple of degrees over. It was literally 3 degrees off. So I wedged it in my tube bender, had my wife sit on it while I pulled like hell, and several attemps, and got it within one degree. So with my wife (130lbs) and me pulling my 185lb ass off all it left was a couple of small dents in the 1 3/4 .095 wall hrew I am using for half of the cage. The other half is .120 wall DOM. So once I got done getting it to shape I thought to myself that I need to see what happens if I try it with the stock cage. I wanted to know if all this effort is worth it. Well, I finally got around to it today. This is what happened with just me pulling (no wife for extra leverage) and with half my effort: If you ever had a endo in a trooper you would not walk away. Can it handle a flop or a slow sideways rollover... Probably, but an extreme impact and it will wrap around you like a street taco.
