2002 Mule 3010 lost power

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a 2002 Mule 3010 with 1759 hours on it.  I got it with about 1700 hours from a neighbor and it had been serviced regularly.  It almost abruptly lost all power. Still driveable however, barely moves and ain't going up hills.  Immediately I did the following:

-air filter change, oil change, spark plug change, fuel filter change, checked fuel, added fuel treatment.

when I depress the accelerator pedal it does not throttle up to its max.  I checked the throttle rigging and it appeared good.  I am able to rev it up at the carbureator.  I inspected the linkage and it appeared that the governor spring was worn because it was not holding the throttle.  Ordered a spring and changed it but no worky still.  It appears to run up and then back off.  Any ideas? Am I making sense.  I have gone through countless forums and can not find a similar problem.

      2007 610 mule will foul a pug after 1 hr of run time on clock.  Plug will be black with sut.  Buddy go a 610 and it does same thing. Have had dealer adjust valves twice and still does it.  When i bought mule valves were ticking and I ran it that way for some time and took it in and dealer adjusted valves and that is when problem started.  I rechecked valves and the were tight and I adjusted to .005 and still fouls plug.  I always use no ethenal gas and have gone to a hotter plug.  I have read that this is a common problem with mule.  Any help appreciated.

      Has anyone put a different brand motor in a mule with a straight shaft,trifugal if so where did you get a tapered sleeve for the primary clutch to work or what other rough can one take to make this setup work. Will a centrifugal clutch work plus converting to chain driven?

      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!
