mule with predator motor

Recommended Posts

my 2005 3010 mule with the 620 in it decided it was tired and went to knocking. i have ordered the predator 670 v twin that should be here tomorrow for my replacement motor. as far as the clutch i am looking at the comet 780 for around 280.00. has any one ever did a motor change that might could give me any advice on the project or clutch.

thanks robbie

Predator's are pretty good, lasting engines. Most people i know dont swap engines,  but just rebuild it.

A lot of the times, Piston slap (knocking):  Piston slap occurs when the gap between piston and cylinder is too wide. Through wear and tear, the gap between piston and cylinder becomes wider. The noise associated with piston slap occurs in association with the perpendicular movement of the piston.

just a little lesson ;):)

      2007 Mule 610,  owned for 8 yrs and valves were ticking when I got it and had them adjusted twice and this is when plugs began to foul.  I replaced battery (used battery I had on hand) a yr ago and didn't foul a plug for some time and replaced batter (new) with a bigger lawn mower type battery again a month ago and have fouled two plug since.  Had carb cleaned and valves adjusted and still fouls plugs way to often.  Friend has a mule just like mine and his does same thing. Have read this is a common problem with 610 mule.  Any help or suggestions would be welcomed.  Thanks and stay healthy.

      Make sure you're reading the correct information as this manual covers multiple FE series engine, some of which were not used in Mules, the manual does a very good job of clarifying which specifications and procedures are for which Model engine.

      Hi, all, I am here to say i have found an excellent source for kawasaki parts, It's run by  Eddie Babbit. It is called Kawasaki Partshouse. run by Babbits online, Muskegon Michigan. http://www.kawasakipartshouse.com/oemparts
      Just the other day i ordered piston rings, for my Mule 550, They got here and a Oil ring, and smaller ring were missing from the box, Kawasaki took responsibility for the "Accident" and  I had also contacted babbits, and they replied and they said" keep the old rings, order a new set and you just pay shipping" so i got $30 piston rings for 8.95!!!? Free shipping on orders over $50!!!

      I have been looking for a cab enclosure for my 3010. I accidently came across one for a 4010 on Amazon for $27. 00. I could not find out if it fit or not but for 27 bucks I figured I would try it. It fit better than I thought it would. If you don't have a windshield, you will have a good gap at the bottom. But with a wind shield it works great. Enough that I ordered a second one  for later. 
      Just figured I would let people know.
