Hisun Vector 500 plow bolt

Recommended Posts

I can’t find good documentation anywhere on what size bolt I need to attach a snow plow to the frame below the winch. Does anyone know where I can find the answer to this? I have a hisun vector 500 and it’s a 2017

Hey Aaron, welcome to the forum. I can't tell you exactly what bolt you need for a specific application. But what I'd do, is this. Try to find out what approximate size it is. I'd guess around a half inch or so. The more important measurement here would be length. A couple of 3/16 pieces of steel, bolted together would need about a 3/4 inch length bolt, minimum. That's to leave threads for a flat washer & nut. You'll want to get a grade 5 bolt. Those shiny zinc hardware store bolts won't do for a heavy duty application, like a plow. But grade 8 is better. Price difference is negligible.

As far as the actual size... I typically use a drill bit to insert in the hole(the sizes are marked on them) if I need to be certain. Otherwise, I just buy several, at 18 cents apiece. That's why length, and grade is important. So you're not buying the whole hardware store. Buy a bolt of a couple sizes starting at a 1/2 inch×3/4 long, along with a couple flat washers each. The nuts would be locknuts. Be prepared to return to the store if it isn't a snug fit. 

I've found that it's always a good practice to keep a mindset, that I'll be returning to the hardware store before I finish the job...it saves my sanity sometimes.

I agree with Kenfain, but knowing the HiSUN uses metric bolts and fasteners, I would think 10mm is the closest thing to the 1/2" bolt. the 10mm is smaller than the 1/2", but larger than the 3/8". Most of the bolts on the HiSUN are either 10mm or 12mm when it comes to the big boys. they do have some smaller 8mm bolt openings but this would be too small to handle the snow plow mount area.

      Hi All,
      I am trying to source a replacement starter for my 2010 Hisun 800.  The part number on the starter is MX100709 800.  Is there any other manufacturer's (Honda, Polaris, Yamaha, etc.) starter that would be a suitable replacement?

      I'm new to the forum and live in Idaho.  It's getting colder, so I'm curious if anyone has installed a cab heater in their Hisun? I went to the dealer and they want $800 bucks and maybe more so I ordered a hot rod heater from Summit Racing. Thought I would see if anyone has experience they might share before I begin.

      Hey guys.
      I have a 2009 hisun 700 I bought bout 2 weeks ago and it was running fine but was hard to start but once warm it fire rite up  i took the  air filter off and it was nasty so I gave it a good cleaning and it hasn't started since. Its cranking over really slow I replaced the starter. I also replaced the batery. It acts like its not releasing decompression  I found a service manual on line and downloaded it and it said the intake valves setting .010-.015 mm  and exhaust is .015-.020 and they all was set on .008 intake and exhaust. And the timing is set I set the intake to .012 and exhaust to .016 and it still cracks over really slow I'm lost and don't know wat else it could be. Anyone have any ideas.  And help would be great thanks .
