Plumber, can we get an update on the Cams? Hows it going? Smooth install? Is it tuned in? Torque increase?

Can't wait for some feedback on a stock motor!

I will know more tomorrow I talk to the mechanic tomorrow on when he is going to installing them. I was going to install them but I'm just like rocmoc to many thing going on right now.

Are you also advancing your cam timing by using an altered upper belt pully?

I was thinking about the question about changing the cam timing, would it be of any value to be able to change the cam timing while the engine is running and have the timing controlled by the computer, so the the timing can be changed for low speed and changed again for high speed? I think it would be doable.

Can't change the cam timing as it is all mechanical. There is thing that you could do to change it by manipulating the timing belt but very complicated to set up. You would have a longer belt to create some slack. That slack would then be taken up on one side or the other of the top pully, rotating the pully advancing or retarding it some. To messy to do.

I was thinking a linear actuator on the side going to the cam pulley and a spring loaded take up on the other and depending on what you need, the actuator pushes on the belt and backs off to advance or vise versa. That wouldn't be so tough would it? The linear actuator could be driven by a stepper motor.

Your idea is ok but there isn't any room under the cover.

ok plumber what a bout the cams ? dedub.

Well this is what happen and why I have not gave a cam update. I hire a mechanic with 40 years experience that I know for 30 years to do the job and it went wrong everybody I talk to says he didn't have it in time right and when he turn the key it bent six valves. So I had to have the head redone we have all that done but when it bend my valves it also broke and cracked some of my shimes so I had to fine some new shims. With the new cams the shims are not thick enough so you have to put a shim under a shim. But i found a shim thick enough so you don't have to put a shim under a shim I order them today so this is were I'm at

Sorry to hear that. This is why I am putting it off for a while. I'd hate to lose use of my Trooper through the summer. Hopefully the upgrade in torque will erase the bad memory. I just hope you remember what your Trooper used to feel like.

      As I tried to do a conversion with the Yamaha 660 motor, I realized the 660 was never fuel injected so it would not work for the fuel injected hisun motor swap. But the good thing is the hisun 750 motor is a clone of the 660 Yamaha but with the components for the fuel injection (cam/crank position sensor). So that left me with a new rebuilt Yamaha 660 and still a broke 750 hisun motor. I took apart 750 think the timing chain had broke from all that I've heard about these motors. The chain was not broke, but just off cam and crank gears! The chain tensioner was at fault!  I've ordered Yamaha 660 replacement parts, chain, two exhaust valves (which got bent when chain came off while motor was spinning) and seals. The piston has 2 little nicks where it had hit valves but no damage otherwise. The head is being redone at the machine shop and I'll be putting it back together in the next couple of weeks. Also I finally tracked down a Service Manual with all the info on the 550/750 Challenger.

      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?

      We have 2.4 acres of forested mountain property with about 1000' of gravel driveway to plow and maintain.  My trailer is a Silverwing SW9f 5'x9' and we would really like to have something that seats 3 people.  I looked at Polaris, Yamaha, Can-AM, Kawasaki and so far the only thing that fits the bill is the Polaris Ranger 570 full size. 
      Just wondering if anyone else has ideas of other options new or used that would fit this?  I really like my trailer and it will be great to use behind the UTV also when i get it so i hate to have to get something different.
      Thank you!
