Another rear diff ?

Recommended Posts

Around a year ago I posted that I trashed my rear diff on the trooper. Upon inspection I noticed that all the bolts that held the ring gear on were safety wired together. Does this mean that it was upgraded? Also what are my options other than Silverbullet on getting it rebuilt?

the wires meant that it had not been upgraded...depending on the damage,you may find your best value in purchasing a complete new rear diff..they generally have some sort of warranty...here in Canada Mudslinger.ca in your neck of the woods try,Prattville powersports took over from JMC and seem good to deal with,as you mentioned Silverbullet

joyner-usa.com will have them, they're the distributor in AZ. If all it did was shear the bolt, lucky you, replace the bolts with 12.9 grade allen heads from mcmaster-carr

Do search for differential in this forum and you'll find lots of advice on differentials. you can also search mcmaster and you find the details on the replacement bolts and how to grind them down some for clearance.

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      Need a new primary clutch.  Center shaft is scored so not really repairable (although I am going to see if my tool and die maker brother can make a replacement part but that'll take too long to be a replacement option.)
      Dealer price for replacement is over $750!  seems VERY high relative to clutch prices for other UTV's (more than double).
      is there a more reasonable alternate?

      Anyone know where to get new rear arms for T2?

      Hi there. Has anyone run across any higher quality rear swing arm bushings for the troopers?

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice
