Got to go on a ride with my T2


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I saw that before...didn't know it was you. That is a sweet looking Trooper. Looks like you were hung up on your trailing arm, so I don't think a lift would have done much for you in that situation. But, I applaud you for driving it like it was meant to be driven! Our Troopers definatley don't have as much clearance as some other machines. I had to leave machine and ride in my buddies RZR4 once because I couldn't get through some bolders. He still doesn't let me live that one down. I got him back later that day when we raced. He got a head start & I still blew past him. This was before I went to heavier 30" tires though.

Our long wheelbase and wide body can get us hung up in alot of areas where smaller machines won't, but we enjoy far more cockpit room. If I was building Troopers I would have at least tried to suck the sides up and in a little. Also, I would have not built it with bolts protruding out of the bottom. Before you bend them all up and have to cut them off like I did, I would get a skidplate made out of UHMW. Something like this:

Mine is similar except that I used 1/4" aluminum under the diffs & tranny. Now I don't cringe when I scrape over the rocks or bottom out hard. There have been several berms I have driven over where the bottom just slid over. Before the mod the lower tubes and bolts would have just dug in and I wouldn't have gotten over them.

Another thing you can do is get rid of all the nuts and use nut clips, then all that is exposed underneath it the screw head or bolt head. I got mine at McMaster-Carr. http://images1.mcmaster.com/Contents/gfx/small/94850a150p1s.png?ver=19733236

      I would really like to know what you guys think about this. I'll try not to ramble and make it as clear as I can.
       
      I took this new job with companyX as a fiber splicer a year ago. I have a 45' bucket truck and 10or12 x 8 ft enclosed splice trailer I have to take home. Within the last 6 months all the management in the splice dept left. Now the power/construction management and higher ups are filling in. Just recently we were told travel to our 1st job is not payable even though we are in a company vehicle. 
      We are union so I asked the union business manager about this. His reply was be grateful you were paid travel as long as you were and that you don't have to drive your POV to the job.
       
      Last week I had 50hr total. The job area is 4-4.5 hrs away. My time was reduced to 44.5 hrs since we were told this travel thing on Tuesday of that week. I wasn't hired for this area. I was hired for area a lot closer to home. 
       
      Pay is good. Work is not hard. Insurance is through the union and so far pretty good.
      But I hate the thought of having to work extra just to make a 40hr paycheck. Anyone who has to drive as part of their job knows windshield time is not easy.
       
      Anyway what do you guys think. Should I look for a different job or just suck it up because of the decent pay and health insurance.

      Just got this kymco 450i Uxv from a guy, drove it around before I paid. Got home drove around town a little while the next day and it started squealing and amd didn’t want to go. Got to looking at the clutch, that’s were the noise is coming from, the primarily sounds like. Maybe a bearing in there cause the grinding noise and it only makes the noise when you go to move.

      Has anyone solved the 750 Hisun Sector shifter problem?
    • By AlphaSerenity
      Hello,
      Before I invest $10k+ into a brand new UTV for the farm, I want to get my feet wet with a fixer upper and learn the mechanical side of things. I acquired a 2022 Hisun Axis 500 (Lowes-specific model) from an auction for $500. It has only 200 hours and 120 miles on the engine. It looks like the previous owner used it for ranch work and didn't drive it on trails, deep water/mud, or anything too crazy.
      While it runs and moves, it has some problems. It struggles to accelerate up any incline in high and low range and sometimes stalls when I let off of the throttle or change gears. When I apply throttle in neutral, it sounds like it is struggling for fuel/air and pops. When I decelerate, there is a grinding sound coming from the clutch, which I've read to be related to the one way bearing and is semi-common. The last thing I've observed is sometimes the speedometer display sometimes will show a much higher value for a few seconds after barely touching the throttle. Based on the documentation, if a problem is detected from the sensors, the instrument panel display should have an error code rendered on the screen in place of the time, but this isn't happening. Here is a video showing some of these issues (engine is exposed with console removed):

      Here is another video of the clutches in action:
       
      I've done some research, but information on this specific unit and sister units is limited. There does seem to be transmission and clutch issues reported. I still need to check into the head gaskets. I don't have the equipment to test compression right now, but I do plan on ordering what is needed soon. I do have an order in place for some cables to read the diagnostics from the computer. There is a shop two hours away from me that works on Hisun products, but I am hoping the problem can be identified and is something within my ability to handle. Below is what I've already investigated.  I am leaning towards the primary clutch needing replacement right now.
      After getting it home and unloaded, I did the following maintenance/checks to it prior to operating it further:
      Changed the engine/clutch oil (and filter) and gear oils using manufacture recommended viscosity Changed the air filter and checked for cracks in the air intake flow. Verified good suction. Cleaned the throttle body Changed the spark plug and verified the gap was within spec (0.6-0.7mm) Changed the coil and coil wire Changed the fuel lines, fuel injector, and verified the fuel pump was outputting the correct initial prime pressure for ignition and continuous pressure after ignition. Also completely emptied the fuel tank and made sure octane 91+ fuel is being used per manufacturer specs. Ran seafoam through system too. Cleaned the spark arrester and verified no cracks or gaps in the exhaust flow Changed out the O2 sensor Checked all wired connections to ensure they were secured and no breaks were visible Checked the belt for tightness and for any signs of wear and tear Verified 4WD and the differential lock function as expected - still hesitates and struggles uphill Verified the fan gears in the shifter are not corroded and working as expected ECU was reset after replacing sensors and fuel-related parts  
       
      Thanks!

      I appreciate any advice anyone can give.
      I am working on a Challenger 750 that the drive belt broke on.
      Removed the side cover and spun the primary drive sheaves. Something was clunking.
      Took it off and pulled the outer cover and all of the rollers were out of their spot and clunking when rotating.
      I noticed these rollers are not round. They have 2 different flat spots on them. Are they supposed to be round?
      If not, How do they go back in? Flat side down, up, I don't know.
       
      I apologize for not explaining this properly. I was just hoping someone has seen this before.
