Mule 2510 Drive Shaft

Recommended Posts

Ive recently been given a 96 or 97 Mule 2510. 4x4, gas, 2200hrs. Its got a bent driver side control arm(parts ordered). ive also found that it has a bad u joint in the front where the drive shaft and the front diff come together. Ive been told you have to unmount te motor/trans assy to be able to get the shaft out. Is this true? Can someone shed some light on an easy way to get the shaft out? Also, the function of the 4x4 isnt crucial for my use of this mule. Would i be able to just cut the shaft in the middle and just remove it? Would it cause any damage to run it without the front shaft? I kow that on my truck transmission, if there is no shaft inserted onto the splines, it will leak trans fluid.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      I was reading a VS. article on ATV.COM, and they were doing a head to head  with the Pro FX EPS, and the Textron Prowler. And they said Kawasaki is using a  812 CC Chery motor for the Mule!
       Kind of surprised me, i thought Kawasaki used their own engines for the mules.

      Once i get the cylinder honed, the only remaining problem is the crankshaft shim..  And i have a few questions.
      1. In the manual it gives a solution to the problem i'm having of the crank NOT spinning when the cover on (by hand).
      2.  And i just can't wrap what's left of my brain around the instructions, i guess use a caliper to measure? (instructions  circled in red)
       (my brother has been helping me, he's fairly knowledgeable with this stuff, but more Diesel engines than anything) and he says to use a dial indicator set up, and to use this* as a spec for end play. and that would help us get the measurements needed in picture #2.
      1st pic is the runout. But is it the same as crankshaft end play? 🤔

      2nd pic is of the instructions (solution) to get the correct shim.
       I don't know, maybe this makes sense the way i wrote it.
       Thanks, Travis.
