I'm in need of a brake master cylinder for my ride. Appears to be leaking between the reservoir and the cylinder (picture). Is there a seal that I can replace inexpensively without buy a whole master cylinder assembly? Can't tell if the master cylinder is the same as used on the Trooper because I don't have a Trooper parts manual. I don't know if the master cylinder is different when they went to the 1100cc engine. Has anyone had experience with master cylinder make for the Kinrod Joyner line of rides (I believe it's a German company)? They are available on Amazon but the configuration isn't the same as OEM.
I acquired a Coleman UT400 just after Thanksgiving (2020) and find it to be quite different than most others seen on the web--the most visible difference is that the cylinder slants toward the rear placing the "hot spot" under the bed rather than under the seat (a significant improvement to my mind). THe curious prt of this is that neither Coleman nor Hisun seem to acknowledge this major design change. In fact the Owner's manual supplied with the vehicle appears tp haqve been written for a completely different unit--showing the ignition and light switches mounted in the dash (they are stalk mounted on the steering column on mine) and indicates that to change the spark plug requires removing the seat (the cylinder head and plug are under the bed on mine):
I wrote to Coleman and they sent me a what is supposed to be the most recent "UT400-5" manual which is still wrong about 90%+ of the vehicle. Neither the Coleman or Hisun websites are of any use as their content provides no photos and very little information about maintenance or the engine/drive train in general.
Is anyone aware of when these changes were made, or of any sites offering info re: this latest mode? Currently I'm battling shift cable adjustment to find better and more consistent reverse gear selection.
Mine also differs in that the parking brake is a single caliper and disc mounted on the rear differential pinion shaft (this seems to be a "5 brake" configuration I have found reference to.
Overall it seems well designed and manufactured--the chassis welds are as nice as you could ask for and the castings and machining are top notch.
Any information or suggestions as to where to look would be appreciated...

Hi, Just purchased a 2010 Qlink Frontrunner 700. Using it to plow my yard (just moved back to NH). I knew it had starting issues but that was mostly around the starter relay (as shown, when I was looking at it). I rewired (and soldered) the 4 wires that go to relay, replaced the relay, starter and battery. It still starts extremely hard but runs great. I don't know what else to check. On another topic, which way do wheel hub nuts turn to loosen? TIA.
Hi, I think I just bought a Husun 450 that is in need of TLC. It is leaking badly from the shifter shaft (located at left foot). I can not find a part number for the seal(s) 3 came off of the shaft.
If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful 🙏
