Opinion on mounts

Hey guys looking for some input on this. Hopefully getting new shocks tommorow bolt size is 1/2" on the t2 I know the bolt is close to 5/8" or almost 16mm so what I was thinking is at the end of my new shocks taking the ball out that the bolt pass's threw and drilling it to the size of the t2 bolt so when all assembled there will be little to no play. Whats your opinions

Having just put new shocks on and had that problem, If you can weld, get a piece of 1/4" flat metal, drill a 1/2" hole in it and cut the outside to match the Trooper shock mounts, leaving room for the welding bead and weld it in. If you have a lathe, drill out the center of the stock bolt to 1/2" and shim the new 1/2" bolt on both sides, I have shims in mine and I think I like it that way.

Depending on how wide the ball is, I would not try that as drilling the ball would be a hassle(major) and then you would have to spacer both sides of it to keep it centered.

As I think about your installation, I think I like the way mine was set up with the hole in the ball being larger than 1/2" and they supplied spacers that went inside the hole and had a 1/2" hole in them. Actually, pretty slick, now that I think about it.

I will try to post a pic tomorrow family day with my son today. I actually brought one of the new shocks and old bolt to machine shop and having spacers made outside diameter will be size of shock bolt inside diameter will be half inch for new bolt and about 16th or so thick. The guy was like I will make them 7$ ea but they won't be very strong on there own I said wen its all bolted together and it's in the frame it should be

      I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?

      Looking for the truck bed components 2018 Textron 900 Stampede.  There is limited information available for the assembly.  Might need a parts list.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap

      I need some help.
       
      I bought a new Renegade in June 2021 and have only put 60 miles on it and the other day checking cows I noticed the oil light on and the oil gauge reading zero and the oil light on.
       
      Is there a better oil sensing unit than the factory?   I've ordered one from Joyner ($60) but would like to have a supply if they are going to go out after 60 miles. 
       
      Thanks

      Its maker has affectionately dubbed it Teslaris, for obvious reasons.
      The Polaris RZR RS1 UTV has a one-liter, two-cylinder engine that from the factory has around 100 horsepower, making the 1,383-pound (627-kilogram) UTV very quick. But there’s always room for more power in one of these vehicles, and instead of fettling with its engine, one dune vehicle aficionado decided to swap in the rear drive motor out of a Tesla Model 3 / Model Y.
      We don’t know how many of the battery modules the put in the vehicle, but it doesn’t appear to be much heavier than stock and it goes up sand dunes with remarkable ease. Depending on which version of Model 3 was the motor donor, the drive unit could have either 261 or 325 horsepower, as long as the battery pack can supply enough wattage and voltage.
      Judging by how easily it flies up the steep sand dune, almost lifting the front wheels off the ground under harder acceleration, it’s safe to say it looks like a real hoot. The steep grade you see it tackling in the video uploaded by the electric UTV’s creator, Ron Cobbley, is located in the St. Anthony, Idaho sand dunes.
      We found more videos on vehicle’s official Instagram account and aside from how interesting it is to see an electric powertrain in an application like this (and how it changes the vehicle), we also noticed that you really hear the tires on the sand more. Usually, this sound is drowned out by the engine.

      The sound’s tone and pitch probably change with speed, giving the driver audible information to help him or her gauge their speed. You don’t really get this in a road-going EV driven on tarmac, which is why it’s trickier to drive an EV quickly - specifically because you have no way of knowing how fast you’re going just by ear.
