Well I bit the bullet and I am having a machine shop do it for me...120 to 150.00.. I can tell you it tested at Rockwell 51 If that helps anyone that cant test it but can make it...I can't tell but for some reason...Probably my ERROR when we took the carrier apart the S-3 Shim was ate up and inside with the spiders... I think it might have been the cause...I don't know Just GUESSING at it.. Theres no marks on the gears so who knows???? So I need a S-3 shim too LOL....Oh well I will make do with what I have....

P.S. Being LAID off Sucks!

Thanks Guys!

Can anyone tell me what happened to my diff. I had it rebuilt with the up grades about two years ago. I was riding in a tight spot in 1st gear in two wheel drive crawling over a few logs about ten inches around when I heard a ping like sound and then found I had no rear wheel drive. I could see the in put shaft from the trans to the diff turning but no rear wheels. I was able to get out in front wheel drive. This is the third time I have had to limp it back with just the front wheels. Im starting to look at other UTV'S as this thing is always breaking down. I have about 5000 easy miles on my T2 as I use it for hunting and trail riding. Help.

Did you put in stronger bolts from Lenny? What broke last time? It's still t2 gearing ratio?

I'm guessing spider gear or side gear shafts if its not making noises like it's driving on few broken teeth off pinion... mine broke few teeth at pinion and chipped the ring gear but spider was still good.

Is there oil coming out anywhere?

Hey big Dan which pinion shaft was you talking about? The pinion itself that mates to ring gear or the stub shaft that goes inside carrier to mate with spider gears?

The spider gear cross shaft...The one that is smooth except the cut out in the middle were they mate.. Thanks.....

I edited my first post description I used wrong part name...

If your missing the conical spacer behind one of the spider gears that would put more stress on the shaft because then only one side takes all the load. The upgrade actually grinds into one of the shafts making it weaker but we haven't had any problems with that and I was running 122hp and now the new owner is running 131hp. If someone over ground the shaft then maybe it was weakened too much. With the spider gears spaced properly, the stock shaft won't go back in and that is what necessitated the grinding. One mistake in the design is that the groove in the shaft has sharp square corners which is a no no for anything under flexing stress. The square corner concentrates the stress at that point instead of spreading it over a larger area as it does when its radiused.

I had the diff go out about a year ago and found it hadn't been up graded like I was told so I had that done. I was told it wouldn't have any more issues 800.00 later. It is the T2 gearing, No oil running out any where and no gear noise at all.

Did you buy the diff already "upgraded" from a store without shimming it? One store told me that they have "upgraded unit" i asked what was upgraded they said stronger bolts and locking tabs to hold the bolt head from turning out... exactly what i already had in my t2 when it blew up...i used lenny kit to take out the sloppy end play

      My 2018 XG-850-SL starter died yesterday. The old part number from Kubota is E7153-11732 which has been superceed by part # EG881-63010. I am looking for an aftermarket starter because the Kubota retail price for the starter starts at $550 and upwards toward $850.  If anyone has gone down this road before and has found an aftermarket starter ~ please share with me. We own a ranch and this thing is used every single day and is sorely missed when it is down for maintenance.  Kind Regards, ~ Stan

      Does anyone know which JBS Clutch kit will work on the Hisun 700. I talked to JBS and he said he knows they sell them to Hisun owners and the 660 kits will fit the 700 but he's not sure which items in the kit Hisun owners have had success with. Not sure if there are any other Hisun forums where I could find this information.
      Anyone here used a JBS kit for a Hisun?

      Just got quoted $770 for my Mule's first 50 hour service. Is it just me, or does this seem insanely excessive? I was expecting something in the $350 to $500 range and thinking that even $500 would be a little high. Is dealer service really necessary at 50 hours? At this price I think I'd like to shop around for a mechanic that could do it for half the price. I don't really have the option of shoping around for a cheaper Kawasaki dealer, as there is just this one dealer a reasonable distance away (30 min). The next closest olne is 3 hours away.

      Hi I just bought a 2020 tracker 800sx crew and looking for a lift kit. It's an identical twin of the 2019 Textron prowler pro crew. It has decent ground clearance at around 11 inches but with the long wheel base of the crew it tends to drag it's belly a good bit. I'll probably end up making one but just seeing if anyone has seen anything yet. Thanks
