I've got this uneasy feeling...


Recommended Posts

That my upper steering u-joint is going to break.

I know that the joint slipping out of the steering shaft is a major issue, but the thread didn't mention fixes. What have you guys done to fix this? I put a 3/32 split pin through the very bottom half of it and it works fine (400 miles +), but the joint flexes as you spin the steering wheel (both before and after the split pin was installed).

Also, some have mentioned a 4x4 manual conversion from the original electric. Anyone have any pics?

I use my T2 for long distances and would hate to have things break down far from life...

Is the steering joint flexing or is it loose? They are typically loose when new. To fix the joint to shaft mount, I made 2 halves that clamp tight around the shaft. This is welded to the original cut off joint. In my case, I replaced the entire upper and lower joints with a good ones I bought off of ebay. One of the halves has two 1/4" set screws in it which tighten down into shallow holes in the steering shaft. Secure and no slop.

I bought a used steering shaft with joints for a 91 Tauris 3.0 and adapted it to my needs. Cost me $35 with shipping.

      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.

      starts up you have keep rpms up for 5 minutes till it warms up then runs fine. But if it stalls wont start unless you unplug fuel pump and hold it to the floor till it starts then plug pump back in and run it till it warms up then it is fine all day.
