My 1997 Mule 2510 won't raise the dump body. Pump/piston seem to work as I can hear it engage but will only go up an inch or two. How can I manually lift dump body?

That sounds like a trick situation to be in.  Last year I had to do some work on the dump bed pump on the Mule 2510 I operate at work.  I was able to lift the bed using the pump and to use a gantry crane to support the bed in suspension and detach the bed from the piston.  However if you can't lift the bed up to get the needed access to detach the piston from the bed itself, then you may have to go through the process of removing the bed from the vehicle entirely?  If you can manage to detach the piston from the bed then you should be able to lift the front end of the bed up.  Sorry I don't have a very clear response for you, but I hope you are able to figure something out!

Thanks for the comeback! I can get the bed up with combination manual and someone else on the switch. Didn't think of detaching bed to see if piston operates without weight of bed. Will try. Also going to change fluid and see if old fluid being tired is the problem, if not may need new pump. Thanks again

You're welcome for the response!  I hope you are able to troubleshoot the problem with ease and grace.  Wish I was more experienced with these things so I could provide more solid advice!

      Hello.  I have 2006 kawasaki mule 3010 trans 4x4 that has the drivers side wheel turning inwards while the passenger side is straight.  What would cause this to happen and what would you suggest to repair.  Thanks.  Adjusted the tie rods, but wont fix this.

      It's been leaking VERY slowly over the past couple years, just  had to add a minute amount of brake fluid every few months. Now i have to i add about 3/4 of a cup every 5 days.
      i took the rear tire off, where it is leaking from, cleaned up the outside of the drum and it looks like the fluid is leaking from where the   "outer" drum meats the inner drum, #41038. guessing its the brake cylinder inside..... any other thoughts. I made sure the brake line is tight too.

      Hi All,
      Have a stock 2017 Stampede 4 door XTR.  Looking for a spare tire, such as a front stock setup.  Quoted from the dealer at $366.00.  For a thousand bucks I can get a whole after market setup of 4 and use my original front for a spare.   My stockies are 27x9r14 and 27x11r14's.  I was thinking of going to 29's.  Does anyone know if they will fit with no rub?  All the dealers don't know.  If anyone has an extra front wheel/tire they want to get rid of ?
      TIA

      I have a 2015 Kawasaki mule 4010 4x4 that wont run more that 5 seconds when the engine is cold and the o2 sensor is plugged in. once I disconnect the sensor it runs and has lots of white smoke out of the exhaust. once it warms up I can plug the o2 sensor in and it will run fine. I swapped the sensor and didn't get any change.

      Dipstick shows pale color, dont think its water, smells like fuel, oil changed one week ago, level is very high.
      First I thought it was water condensed into the oil...but someone pointed out the smell, and it doesn't look white-milky. And a half qt or so in one week?
      So is it possible to get fuel leaking into the oil?
