differential parts


Recommended Posts

When Kinarfi and I took apart my front differential, we found one of the washers that slip behind the spider gears was missing (there were only 3 installed from the factory--guess it was lunch time when it can to install #4). I was wondering if any of you out there who have spare parts or have had to tear theirs apart may have an extra one of these washers I could buy off of you. This is the spherical or curved washer and one is supposed to sit behind each of the 4 spider gears and acts like a bearing/bushing between the spider gear and the cone they sit in.

Kinarfi and I have been trying to find one that would work from a driveline shop, but not having much luck so thought I would throw it out to you all. I do have the dimensions if you are not sure if you have the right one. Thanks for looking and let me know if you find one you would be willing to part with or if you have other ideas on where I might find one (silverbullet didn't have one).

I have a thought that should work. The stock washer is fairly soft like mild steel. I think if you can find a piece of bearing brass (I think it is Brass 360) in sheet that is the same thickness or within a couple of thousands. that you could make one. Brass would be my first choise but a piese of mile sheet steel would probably work ok too. First drill a hole in it to the same size as in the existing washers. Then cut it into a washer maybe 1/8" larger then the stock washer. Take this blank and put it into the spider gear housing in between a spider gear and one of the curved surfaces the washers normally seat up against. Then put a short pin thru the spider gear and washer and into the housing to align things. A short bolt that doesn't stick all the way thru would work fine. Cut one off if you have to. Put the head of the bolt against the inside side of the spider gear. Then use a press, big c-clamp or whatever you can come up with to push on a pin coming from the opposite side of the housing thru the pin hole and seating against the bolt head and press the spider gear up against the inside wall of the housing. A lead or soft steel hammer would even work to form it. This should form the washer into the spherical shape you need. After you get it pressed to shape, strike the head of the bolt while the washer is still in between the gear and housing, with a heavy more solid hammer a few times to take out any spring back of the newly formed washer. Now, trim the outside of the new washer to the correct size and you should have it.

I tried contacting him over the weekend via email for something else but has not responded. If you get a response, let me know and I will do the same for you.

ROCMOC,

He never wrote me back. Now looking back, Lenny & I should have bid more for some of the parts. I tried to buy the clutches and they must have had deep pockets as I was the under-bidder with a health bid. Some of these guys were just buying to make a buck and were not really car/off-road/toy guys. Oh well! Thanks for letting me know.

Casey from JMC referred me to a guy named Chris who has done some work on joyner differentials. He is checking through things (Junk box) to see if he has one...said he very well may have one and would get back to me. Will keep you posted.

Jeff

Can you PM me his number?

Thanks,

      Hey guys. I have a 2020 rebel west rlx1500. Does anyone make or offer different ratio front and rear diff gears? I’ve searched the web but not a lot of info about it. I’m wanting to lower the gear ratio and run taller tires. Thanks in advance.

      I was taking my family on a little ride up the road going uphill in our massimo msu 500. Then all of a sudden it quit pulling and the rpms went up way high to over 6000.  After we got it pushed on up the hill and turned around was able to coast back to the house.  We do ride it alot on the main road, so I am assuming top speed and top rpms constantly is more than likely to blame for this issue, now I just need to know how to fix it. If anyone has any suggestions it is appreciated

      A few pics and a short write up on my installation of the Ice Crusher heater kit for the Coleman / Hisun 400. Ice Crusher makes a kit for the Coleman 400 which includes a dash mounted heater core mounted in a compact housing that includes 2 heat outlets that can be aimed wherever you want or closed, a built in coolant shutoff valve for summer use and a 3 speed fan. The kit has all needed hoses,fittings,clamps and hardware so you don't need to hunt around for anything else in theory. The unit is well made and everything seems solid and sturdy enough to live in a UTV. Installation is pretty straight forward,raise the front about a foot and start planning where things need to go. Detailed instructions are included as well as a template on where to position the holes where the 2 hoses pass through the "firewall". There are instructions on exactly where to position the mounting screws etc for the heater unit etc. I did encounter a problem with the hose positioning template which positioned the holes about 1" too low and caused a problem with mounting the rear support bracket. I contacted the company and worked with their engineers to amend the template for future buyers. The coolant tap ins are basically cutting the original coolant hoses going to (passenger side) and from (driver side) and installing the supplied 3/4" to 1/2" tee fitting. One 1/2" hose connects to each of the two heater core pipes. The theory is that some of the coolant is directed through the heater,which should be adequate for cab heat. I found that the original radiator is quite large for the little 400 motor and didn't really allow the heater to provide heat for very long before getting too cool to help much. The solution was to add a 3/4" heater shut off valve in the passenger side radiator hose between the tee fitting and the radiator. This allows me the option of directing all of the hot coolant through the heater or a blend depending on conditions. This valve is a cable operated style with a simple push pull knob installed in the dash.Having the front end raised makes it easy to simply refill the radiator without the need to bleed the system. Very effective. After sealing up the soft enclosure, the heater is about as effective as a regular car of truck unit. The blend valve is available at any auto parts store as a kit with the cable and hardware for about $25. I have had zero issues with overheating even when running for a hour on the roads with all the coolant going through only the heater The heater kit sells for $399,which isn't cheap, but I figured with as fully equipped the Colman 400 is at the price I paid ($6999), why not make it as comfortable as possible?
