Trooper Fuel system parts

Recommended Posts

The Troopers almost added another rider to the list of the stranded as I nearly fell victim to the less-than-reliable fuel pump. While out with the T2 yesterday I heard a funny whining, stuttering, noise. I was having so much fun, I was tempted not to check it (lets be honest....."hear no evil, see no evil" worked as a kid, right?) But grown up mentality got the better of me and I stopped to check it out, only to find my fuel hose jumping around as the output of the fuel pump surged. Thankfully I made it back to the trailer, but not without it dying a couple times on me while I was trying to climb my way out.

I know there is a pinned thread for parts, maybe one of the admin would want to add the following info to that list. Since I was hoping to ride this weekend I really did not like the idea of having to wait for a fuel pump to be shipped to me, so I headed to Autozone. Found the following, so I thought I would share.

Fuel Pump:

Brand - Airtex

Supplier - Autozone

Warrenty - 1yr

P/N - E2000

Application: (option for) 1988 Ford F-150, 5.0Lt, FI, 8cyl.

Price - $85


Airtex E2000 / Bosh 0 580 254 910

Maximum Free Flow Rate (gph): 40

Maximum Pressure Range (psi): 95

Minimum Free Flow Rate (gph): 30 / 130 LPH (34 GPH)

Minimum Pressure Range (psi): 70 / 5 BAR (72.5 PSI)

NOTES: Outlet size matches, no adaption required. Inlet size of pump is 5/16" and needs to be addapted to the larger suction hose, or replace the suction hose. I used a 5/16" to 1/2" brass hose barbed fitting and a short piece of Fuel hose. I know there maybe some concern with the idea of making the supply/suction hose smaller, but IMO, if the MFG of the pump designed and supplied it with a connection fitting of 5/16" given their flow requirements for the pump, I think it is a safe bet to use 5/16" Not to mention the supply from the tank is 5/16", and connections through filter are the same. the only place the size changes is from outlet of the filter to inlet of Bosh pump.

While at it I replaced the fuel filter (only made sense). I know there was some talk in previous posts about the filter having different size hoses connected to each side. I assumed the filter had different sized inlet/outlet but found that the larger outlet hose actually has an adapter inside it which necks it down to fit correctly on a 5/16" hose barb. The OE filter had same size inlet/outlet connections. Replaced with universal filter from Autozone.

Brand: Duralast

P/N: FF5/16DL

Application: Universal

Notes: filter physically smaller in size, but have had No issues with flow restrictions. Inlet/outlet sizes match OE hoses. As a bonus it is clear housing so it gives you a nice visual of whats happening there.

      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.

      Hello friends,
      I got my ODES Ravager UTV yesterday and after a couple of hours of driving when I go downhill I heard a strange loud noise a couple of times, like a gear skipping or maybe something from the differential.
      It doesn't always happen and when it does it is heard for a few seconds and then it goes away and everything works normally, I'm worried if there could be some major malfunction or what could be the problem if someone can help me?
      Thanks a lot.

      I have a Bennche 700 EFI Bighorn. I’ve recently been unable to get it to start. After a little troubleshooting I realized my fuel pump was not pumping fuel. This weekend I emptied the gas and replaced it with new. I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel injector. I also replaced the battery, spark plug and made sure all my fuses and relays were good. I have confirmed that the float on the fuel pump is not obstructed. The UTV is about 12 years old and has less than 100 hours on it. It has not run in over a year.  Not sure whats going on?!? After doing a little reading I'm leaning towards it being an issue with the ECU or perhaps a faulty wire in the wiring harness. Anyone have any ideas on where to start looking or what I could be dealing with? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

      hello everyone, i just joined this forum to try my luck, few days ago i bought an old (dont know exactly), 2011/14 hi sun 500cc ""carburated"",  was not running at the time, but i fell was a good deal and decided it to bring it home to play with it, this is the issue, i bought and installed a new carb, and pump, i repositioned the battery location and upgraded to a "car batt", reconnected the fuel lines and started it, but it only runs with the choke ON, i checked the bowl, it does have fuel,but for some reason wont inject it to run, i came across a video that say that ""the body small tank had to be connected for the cart to run" (was deleted when bought), sure enough i got it to run sporadically , but the so called ""small body tank'' often runs out of fuel and wont refill itself , i had to couple times do it manually, so how does that small tank works ?..what does it do?..and why if  bypass it , the cart wont start?....any help?..thanks so much!!!

      Going down a 20 deg hill engine is holding UTV back. Then something releases like going into Neutral and makes a loud clacking noise. Have to use brake to slow UTV down. Then once level it shifts back into gear. Have done shift extension does not pop out of gear.
