I have a MSU 500 and sometimes it acts sluggish in 4x4 and you can smell hot gear oil.
I'm Thinking it is something binding up the the transfer case or front differential but before I dig into it I wanted to see if anybody had a similar problem.

I have a 2012 MSU 500 that recently was having an issue with the motor not starting, I ended up reworking the ground wire at the fuel pump leads and now I have notice that when I switch to 4Wheel drive, it does not work. Any ideals what going on?
I am a mechanical engineering student who is trying to design a UTV to be used by maintenance workers around parks and university campuses. One of our unique selling points was that the rear cargo area would be modular so it can be swapped out for different "rear modules". For example, it could just be cargo hold but also a cage, refrigeration, more passenger seats or carrying woodchip etc.
What would be an easy way of detaching the different rear modules and swapping with a new one? A way of securing it to the frame but also allowing it to be removed with ease. From what I've seen, most UTV bodies are directly bolted to the frame.
Thank you for reading.
New machine, tilt wheel won't "tilt" and I don't want to force anything. Owner's manual says to pull pin, adjust, release pin in desired position. I can feel the pin moving, but wheel won't lower. Any suggestions instead of taking it all the way back to the dealer? Thanks in advance...
