Wonder if it will fit?

Recommended Posts



I want one quick. Just have to do a little research. Maybe no limits can build some limited edition trooper S's

Cruising the web, I tripped over this and am trying to figure out how to get one and how to make it work.

I think stock that we are running about 95 LB FT of torque and this engine is 134. That is a nice increase and the engine is small enough to probably fit ok and I think the drive line would hold it ok. Not if your letting the clutch fly. You could probably buy the whole engine for less then a supercharger installation. Then again they also make a small diesel that has about 220 LB FT of torque and a nice 6 speed tranny to go with it. That is the one I like. Now you are getting serious. I sujested to JMC when they first took over the line to have a Trooper made from the factory with that combination. In fact, I offered my services free of charge if they would let me help redesign the Trooper. Never heard back. "This concept has so much potential, I would like to see it built to what it's potential is.

Lenny, I shot you an E-mail.. That diesel motor looks good, but there would probably have to be a whole re-design of the ass end of the buggy to make it work, not to mention that there would need to be big upgrades to the differentials. I got my first pictures the otehr day from a customer who got one of the "upgraded" diffs about a year and a few months ago... It was not a pretty sight, although the ring and pinion did survive.

I always figured that could be a future project. Re-designing would be a must and I would redesign the entire suspension and running gear. Hey, currently there are a lot of people putting lots of big bucks into their machines to get them to preform correctly. I wouldn't have any problem paying an extra $5000-$6000 extra for a kick ass machine that did everything well, real well. Have a diesel with 31" tires stock and a good 14 to 18" of great suspension and a low range. We could probably get Flatbed to help on the suspension design. He not only does do that as a professional he also came in 2nd overall in the Baja 1000 to back up his ability. Wow, it could get exciting.

That would be fun, There is so much more you could do with a diesel motor to squeeze more power out of them, only downside of that motor is that it is a common rail system. They can be enhanced, but not as well as the older diesels.. with those the sky and your pocket book is the limit.

Maybe we could break into the heads for direct injection.

What about the old VW diesel that came in their rabbit and pick up back in the late 70's and early 80's.I think it was a 1.5 or 1.6.

I have put this idea on hold for now. This motor will not bolt to our current tranny and talking with them I would need to purchase 12 motors. Maybe for 2012

      Bought this machine a couple years ago and the gages didn’t work.  I have troubleshot this thing numerous times to no avail. Thought it may be a common ground so I individually grounded  the gages, didn’t work.  I have tested the sending units.  All have some resistance that changes as the engine revs or gets warmer.  Please help me.  Thanks in advance

      I bought a used 2017 Warrior 800, with 92 hours on it. No problems with speed and power!!It's amazing! That being said my speedometer doesn't work. Everything else does tho.. Just the needle speedometer doesn't. Anyone have any ideals?I've checked fuses, was going to remove sensor but from the out side it looks ok. When driving  the gauge moves off the 0, but that's about it. Any help would be appreciated! thanks

      The cables are sort of seized up on the emergency brake, they still work but i have to wiggle and pull on em to get them to release, i pulled the drum off but cant see a way to remove the cable. It is kind of dirty inside the drum where it was leaking so i need to run to the parts store and buy some parts cleaner so i can see everything better.
       The shop manual i have  does not cover parking brake cable removal, well.... it does kind of. it says "Remove parking brake cable at both ends" 🙄
       We'll see
       EDIT: ARRR! Looks like my rear axle seal is leaking, there is a small puddle on a machined step below the seal and it smells like Trans oil. felt around the wheel cylinder and it isn't coming from their.....  I guess my weekend is planned for me LOL
