Recommended Posts

I have a Kioti  Mechron utv and want to add power steering. Can anyone till me if there is an electric assist motor from a car that would work putting between the steering wheel and steering box. One that doesn't need alot of electronics

Just a guess, but I'd suspect that you'd be better off using a utv power rack n pinion. Maybe off an older Kubota 9000. Either way you're gonna have to do some fabrication. If Kioti has a power steering model, you might get lucky.

This,  I'm guessing, uses hydraulics which i don't have. 

They have electric powered hydraulic pumps. Kinda like how a power steering makes hydraulic power, using a pulley off the engine. These would use an electric motor to accomplish the same thing. But you still need a hydraulic rack and pinion. I'd look for a vehicle that has the same width, as measured hub to hub. There's plenty of vehicles that have power steering. But mounting it will still require lots of modification, as well as a significant cost. Most of the cost would be in acquiring the rack, since a utv salvage yard will be difficult to impossible to find. The research of finding a suitable sized rack will be a daunting task. But you might get lucky, since being real close would probably work just fine. But the fabrication will need to be perfect, if its gonna drive & ride right. Give WCF a call, maybe he's got a simple solution.

      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!

      Hi all, 
      I know the wheels are 
      Front 22x7x10 - 4/156

      Does anyone know the Ceterbore size?

      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.

      Can anybody tell me where I can get wheel spacers for a Hisun HS500?  What other spacers will fit the hisun? Also, will 27-inch tires fit without rubbing? HELP!

      I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive.  I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation.  
      I have not taken anything apart at this point.  Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out.
