t2 clutch options.


Recommended Posts

Hi, I recently bought a 2012 trooper and am looking for a clutch upgrade. I know some offer a kevlar disc with a double diaphram plate. Has anyone used a 4 puck metallic clutch disc on these? I have a 4 puck in one of my cars and it works great. Just looking for some opinions. Thanks.

I think I'm the only that has used a double spring pressure plate. I initially put it in with a Kevlar clutch plate. Didn't like it. It didn't slip but it was to grabby. Couldn't keep it smooth when I needed to have it smooth like in rock crawling. When I took out the old clutch which I abused continuously, it still looked nearly new. The whole friction surface wasn't even hitting but only on an evenly spread patchwork of high spots which was making contact with the flywheel and pressure plate. It wasn't even seated in yet. I changed it because I could get it to slip in tight spots. Figured it was on its way out. Finally I pulled the Kevlar clutch plate and put the original plate back in but with the double sprung pressure plate. Smooth as silk and no matter how hard I worked it, it didn't slip at all. I could be in a real tight spot in big boulders where I would have to rev the engine despite having 130hp and 126#/ft of torque and Renegade gearing in order to get going and the clutch would let out smooth and not slip when approaching being engaged all the way. As far as I'm concerned it is the only way to go. If you do the double sprung pressure plate be sure to reinforce the throw out bearing forks or they will break.

Not familiar with the 4 puck metallic plate.

Thanks for the input. Mine is still stock for now. Just put 30 in. zillas on. We'll see how those work this weekend.Trying to find the limits of the machine to know what to expect on the trail and to decide on future upgrades. Also ordered the viper fuel controller from silverbullet and have heard good reviews. Time will tell. Do you have a turbo or a supercharger set-up on yours? From who?

Lenny - good to see you are still posting. Hope all is well and your next project is underway. Better get done soon as we should get together again in the fall sometime and then plan a spring trip again! Never did ask you how to reinforce the forks for the throwout bearing. Next time I do my clutch I will upgrade pressure plate and go with stock disc but now how to reinforce the forks is the question.

trackguy22, Mine was supercharged. Did it myself. Snapisone, who is a forum member here bought mine. He lives in Rockford, IL

Bruce, tried to call but the number wouldn't connect. I'll do a drawing for you on the reinforcement of the throwout fork.

I ran the trooper this weekend with the zillas. No issues either,but didn't run in the mud yet. With the taller tires I liked the lower rpm at the same speed than with the originals. Didn't mind the ride at low speeds,I have a S-10 blazer with tracks for the winter.

      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)?

      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.
