Heater for Troopers

Recommended Posts

Has anyone already installed a heater in their Trooper, where is the best place to tap into the engines coolant flow. How do you do it? Got any photos?

Thanks

Joyners kit taps in to the rubber coolant hose that runs from the front of the engine head to the rear right side where that hose joins with the hose coming out of the engine block. You can cut that hose anywhere it's works for you and run it thru the heater and continue it back to the other side of the cut. That forces the coolant to go thru the heater before contining on.

I've just sent a copy of the Trooper owners options manual out to your email address. It is large so don't give up on it when it's downloading. The heater unit is on page 30/31.

Got the options manual, thanks, here's what I have in mind to do for a heater, I have 2 cross flow fans used for cooling high power audio amps and 2 heat exchanges for go carts and plan to mount the fan at the top of the panel in front and below the seats so the fan blow down across the heat exchanger so the warm air flows down across the floor and onto my feet and the up the dash. Just need to sort out how to mount it all, the heater hose will be out of sight under the seats, should have room in front of the gas tank too.

Lenny, take a look at the red heat exchanger, how hard would it be to cut grooves like that in a piece of billet aluminum that was 2" or 2 1/2" X 4" X 8" with the coolant flow through the 8" length and the fins left square, maybe the next size larger hole, these have a 1/2" hole through them.

Machining groves that deep on 4 sides of an aluminum block would take a while and an extra long cutter. Can't do it in one pass but probably 4 or 5 for each groove. Machining groves on a round piece would be much easier as it could be done on the lathe. Anyway, I don't like what I see you doing. Not enough surface area for the coolant nor the air. I sent you an email, you might get some idea from that.

I bought a MOAB heater from summit mounted it under front hood and ran heater hose through the driveline tunnel. Then I used the duct kit to blow heat in my lap. Works great even with out doors, except coming out of hills . The engine cools off a lot and doesnt keep me real. Need themostat on main fan.

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      Soo for my second problem lol, 2009 trooper 1100 5 speed , will not engage 5th gear , all others work fine but seems like 5th doesn't engage completely and wont grab the gear. Any idea on where to start looking for issues, or what to look for in regards to linkage.

      So my rear diff lock cable is seized on a 2009 trooper 1100 T2 . How do i remove the end that goes into the diff ? 
    • By Neil Wilson
      I just bought a 2008 Trooper T2 not knowing much about them. On this one the owner said the horn doesn't work, the winch never did work and during inspection the rear brake lights didn't work. He said he replaced the rear light pods recently and the brake lights worked before. He said the fuse module is corroded so he bypassed it and rigged up his own switches for the fuel pump and radiator fan. I see in the wiring diagram the horn and rear brake lights are on the same circuit. Now I am worried the problem is in the wiring harness.
      I have the wiring diagram from the online manual but I can't make any sense of it. I see lots of posts about wiring issues and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the issues I see with these machines and am regretting buying it.
      For now my main concern is to get the brake lights working so I can drive it to some nearby trails. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about diagnosing the problem or workarounds. Also if there is a better wiring diagram out there that might help. I would consider hiring someone local to diagnose it so any recommendations are welcome.
      TIA.
