Some improvements - with a bit of everything thrown in...

Recommended Posts

Didn't include pics of the obvious like rad fan. Just the stuff I made up.

First off, FUSEBOX. I replaced mine. If you want to replace yours, cut the wires fuse by fuse near the old terminal. This way if you get confused, you can still see which wire went where. I have a pic of the work in progress, and the final assembly. Relays are now individual too.

4X4 electric to manual conversion.

I have a pic of the diff lever I used and how its mounted. Used a motorcycle cable, and the front diff has a plate as you can see. This plate is home made - Central America has next to nothing, so I had to use a hacksaw and file to make this. However, it works great and is reliable. You can see a front and back of the mechanism that pushes the pin in and out.

I used to be lead hand and team leader at my old tool and die shop. Now my parrot inspects everything and tells me what to do.

Here's the link;

Your homemade parts look like it could had came off any shelf of Joyner parts shop. You got some skills for a guy that lives in a place where resources isn't easily available.

Doesn't say much for the joyner parts har har

Thanks bud. Just wanted to give our friends some ideas on what works and is easy to make. I think Lenny has a second lever for sale too, and the price is certainly right for anyone who wants to do the same. I can get motorcycle cables here for $5 plus shipping and handling, if anyone wants it.

Also, a gear change cable would work too, pushing the pin in instead of pulling it out.

      Hey guys,

      While installing the High lifter lift kit in my 2015 Mule 4010 I nicked the piston, strut rod, the shiney rod in the middle that I cant remember the name (no coffee yet this morning). I knew the nick was deep enough to eventually tear up the seal and she'd let loose. Well 3 months or so down the road here we are, its blown out. 
       
      My question is how do I know which strut I have? I see 2 listed in the exploded 45023-1006 and the 45023-7503. The difference is the spring rate or K value. Seeing as I have high lifter springs does it matter the K value? And if that's the case can I use any of the 45023 prefix struts from various other models? 

      Thanks all,

      The main key fuse (25A) burns out as soon as a replace it (even with key in the off position) and even with ignition disconnected.  Any ideas on where to start looking to determine where the short is?  Or does anyone know where I can find a wiring diagram?

      I have a 2012 Kawasaki 4000 Mule and the hood release cable is frozen and will not move. I want to replace the cable and have removed the fenders, hood, cargo box to access the cable. I finally had to remove the plastic dash far enough away so I could get a wrench on the nut holding the cable release knob in place. That's a lot of fun. I cannot remove the pin holding the cable to the release bar mechanism. Is that a force fit pin or what. There are no keepers holding it in place. Any suggestions on how to get the cable out? I can see why the previous owner never fixed it as you have to remove the whole front to get to the cable. I've tried penetrating fluids to make the cable work with no success. Your help is appreciated. Gerry C.
