Early Trooper with solid skid plate!

Recommended Posts

Has anyone made mods to the solid skid plate on the earlier Trooper? I know there was a post about cutting a hole to drain the Engine Oil. Has anyone did anything else. I want to be able be able to work on the thing without pulling the engine. I am also thinking of lighting wieght in the future.

Thanks,

rocmoc, without no doubt at all, this was one design oversight on the earlier T2 that is very frustrating. The only 2 ways around it in my view is to cut a larger hole for easier access to the drain plug or go the whole hog and remove the welded panel directly beneath the sump and relocate the T connection housing the hydraulic rear parking brake hoses. The T connection could stay put if a supporting 4cm east to west boxed brace is welded in place of the now removed panel for it to bolt onto. If you do weld on a supporting brace, all that's need is to add another brace further up for the original panel to bolt onto, otherwise replace the cut off panel with a new oversize panel and bolt onto existing panels. I know rocmoc, easier said than done and I haven't made the effort but I think this is your only answer and you are gaining a little weight in doing it.

Cheers Mike

did you see what I did to my bolts for the skid plates? look at my" Oil Changes Xmission & Diff " thread

Also check out the oil drain link on Parts & Pieces, I put it on mine and attached a hose to it, now all I have to do is bring the hose out through a hole in the plate, stick the end in a bottle and reach in and flip the lever to let the oil out.

rocmoc The troopers that have a skid pan that you can take off are a pain. mine comes off and i want to change how it is mounted. On a seprate issue don"t forget about the carrier bearing on the front drive-line, there is a zert on the very top of it.

Is there a zert fitting on all the drivelines or just the new ones?

Yes there is a zert fitting in all of the Troopers on the front driveline carrier bearing. It is located under the plastic housing island between the seats under the shifter. The plastic is a pain to remove the first time. I did a lot of cutting an made it much simpler to remove & replace the plastic. I also removed the plastic under the dash for ease of access.

What you could do is cut the old one of leaving 1-2" of the old one. Cut the new one just a bit smaller then the old one over lap and attach it to what is left of the old one with nuts and bolts. the first time I changed my diffs and oil i scraped the screws went with hex head bolts put nuts on the top side. I had a hell of a time getting some of them off from buggering them up on the rocks. Just what I did. Todd

      my hisun 400 has ben leaking oil out of a small metal tube on the bottom near the oil filter. Got the side by side given to me after been sitting for a couple years  but 2 quarts in nothing happened my buddy went and worked on it and put another quart in it. i thought it just pushed out what it didn't need. but its dry as a bone inside. does have a good clatter coming from the top end as well, with oil in it. looking for some help not much on the internet about these things.

      This post will explain how to hook up your PC to the ECU of a Hisun/Coleman/Etc UTV to be able to read error codes & engine parameters for troubleshooting purposes.
      This is applicable to all small engines using the Delphi MT-05 ECU. This should cover all fuel injected Hisun models, as well as various other Chinese FI engines, as the Delphi MT-05 ECU seems to be the favored ECU solution.
      Even though we get actual engine error codes to display on the dash, sometimes we have “pending codes” (not yet confirmed by the ECU) or other intermittent issues that are hard to diagnose, for example a poorly connected sensor that may give intermittent false readings, or a sensor that’s putting out bad date, but not bad enough for the ECU to realize.
      The setup requires 2 cables, which are available for around $25 combined, a PC with a USB port, and some charityware software called “HUD ECU Hacker”. This gives the same functionality as the $300 dealer code scanner for a fraction of the price.
      In searching I found info about HUD ECU Hacker, but I have yet to see info anywhere about how to hook it up to a Hisun, so I took the leap and bought some cables, and made it work. I will show a step by step of how to do so in post two.
      I will be breaking this down into 2 posts:
      Delphi ECU Info & Overview (This post) System setup & use Delphi ECU Info (Skip ahead to the next post if your eyes glaze over technical details)
      The Delphi MT-05 ECU was developed to allow small engines to use fuel injection. A fuel injection system requires feedback from various sensors to operate efficiently. This feedback allows the adjustment of ignition timing, fuel injection volume, etc to efficiently and cleanly produce the most power possible from a given engine.
      The MT-05 ECU has a number of sensors that are required for proper functioning including; Coolant temp, crankshaft position, intake temp, intake pressure, exhaust O2, throttle position, as well as some other optional sensors that are used on more complex vehicles.
      From the sensors the ECU adjusts: Fuel injector timing/pulse, Idle air control valve, and ignition coil

      The Delphi MT-05 puts out diagnostic data, however it is not ODB2 like a modern car, where is where it gets tricky reading it. There are three options, there is an old 16 bit piece of software Delphi has that is not able to run on a modern computer, there is the motorscanner tool for dealers ($300), or there is freeware HUD ECU Hacker with the proper cables.

      I have a 2022 500 Hisun product, I have had them in the past. I change my oil myself and trying to drain through the hole where I remove the plug is a mess.  How does everyone keep the belly pan clean during the oil and filter service?

      Please help I have a Massimo 400 buck that has an oil leak. The oil is leaking on the front side of the motor. It leaks out of a u-shaped steel pipe that has two banjo style fittings on it. I have tried using RTV and different banjo washers and have had no luck. It drips about one drip per second while it's running. I can't find parts for it at this time.
