clutch fork removal

You have to make a tool to remove the bushing and pound out of the transmission housing after removing the seal. The kit is $60 or so from JMC and it comes with both bushings, new seal, throwout bearing as well. I was going to beef up the fork as well but consodering the time and effort to remove bushing and then weld a gusset on a fork that is already heat treated I decided against it. I got a heavier duty pressure plate which is probably 30% stronger clamping force than stock and it is probably just fine with the oe fork. I will post what I found out on my clutch problems under the topic clutch problems later. You will find it to be very interesting and costly I might add.

Only issue now is that the fork isn't heat treated. Should be OK but I didn't do because of the fact that I wanted to heat treat after welding gusset. This is a diaphragm clutch so that fork really doesn't have to push that hard so either way I think we are both safe with it. Not sure if Lenny heat treated his after welding or not. He told me the other day to take a file to it and see if it made a mark while filing on it and it did not which means our forks are heat treated. Talked with Casey at JMC and he says the transmissions are actually pretty stout and built in government factories unlike the exploding out of tolerance differentials we have. Lenny's kit takes care of those and makes them a nice unit when finished shimming, etc.

      Hello, All!  I've decided to replace the traction batteries in my 2018 Sector E1 with a 48V Lithium set. They may be expensive, but I figure the Discovery Dry Cell are, too. I am not looking for the max driving range, as I have never received near the brochured range to begin with, but a good mix of charge/ get work done/ charge is what I am expecting.
      I have settled on the 48V EAGL kit from bigbattery dot com. Each battery pack provides 30Ah. The kit ships with a charger, as well. The packs would be physically connected in parallel (using a busbar) to one another, maintaining the 48V voltage, but together would be able to provide the amp draw the buggy pulls when going up hill or towing a rake (rated 320 max continuous Amps). This is in comparison to the serial connection the eight 6V lead batteries. Each of the EAGL batteries looks to have its own BMS; am I correct in thinking I will have to use their included charger rather than (simply) changing the onboard charger to lithium mode? The chemistry of the pack is LiFe PO4, for what it's worth.  I haven't torn anything apart yet (to diagram), so  I am not sure how the dash will interpret the AMP draw, but the kit I am looking at includes a dash mounted charge indicator.
      If anyone has completed a similar conversion, do you have any tips? Specifically, how did you remove the original batteries, and how did you secure the new ones? I am guessing that almost any change from the stock batteries would involve at least some modifications. Any tips would be appreciated, especially things I may have failed to consider. Thanks!

      My "R" light on the dash will not go out when I take the UTV out of reverse and put it into any other gear. Is this just the light switch issue or will this effect engine performance in the other gears?

      Spent today at a Honda dealership looking at their 520 side by side, then on the way home past our Lowes noticed they had several new UTVs on site, so we U-turned and ducked in there. We were impressed that all that came for $9,999 metal whole length skid plate, nice sized bed, roof, windshield, side mirrors, winch, upgrade looking tires… all of which would have added thousands of dollars to an already expensive Honda 520. Now Honda does have a great reputation from my trusted UTV experienced buddy, so it has that going for it.

      My 2014 Odes with less than 1000 miles suddenly won’t turn over with a fully charged battery.

      Having issues with the IR model 421275 transmission. In 2wd it takes playing with the throttle to get it to engage in fwd or reverse, if you flip into 4wd, it goes into gear perfectly. Once moving, you can go back into 2wd and everything works until you stop. I changed hyd fluid and have ran the linkage in and out. Any thought on the issue?
