Hisun 500 engine thermostat

No it was fine.  Drove it over 100 miles with no problem.  I am thinkimg more and more you are right that it is a head gasket.  Strange though I would think you would smell it in the exhaust.

Sometimes you can smell it. Sometimes there'll be a drip as it idles. But not always. There's another test, that tests for exhaust gasses in the coolant. But I know first hand, that it's not 100% reliable. The leak down test is the best.

 

The plugs might be an indicator too. If one looks brand new, that would be consistent with being steam cleaned with coolant. But since you'd have to remove the head to fix it. A job like that requires certainty.

Yes for sure.  If it needs a gasket I will have it done.  I saw what it takes to do one and keeping everything straight with the timing looks like a nightmare.

      Hi, all, I am here to say i have found an excellent source for kawasaki parts, It's run by  Eddie Babbit. It is called Kawasaki Partshouse. run by Babbits online, Muskegon Michigan. http://www.kawasakipartshouse.com/oemparts
      Just the other day i ordered piston rings, for my Mule 550, They got here and a Oil ring, and smaller ring were missing from the box, Kawasaki took responsibility for the "Accident" and  I had also contacted babbits, and they replied and they said" keep the old rings, order a new set and you just pay shipping" so i got $30 piston rings for 8.95!!!? Free shipping on orders over $50!!!

      Thoughts on the Hisun 500 Sector? Can't afford a name brand and I have heard some good things about the Hisun. Thoughts?

      I'm out of town and away from our 2017 Coleman/Hisun UTV 500 Side x Side, my Son needs to replace a broken cotter pin on the front left axle and tighten everything back up.
      We were able to find the cotter pin size 2.5mm x 30mm or equivalent 1/8" x 2" and I picked up a few.
      I just can not find the size socket it will need and the torque setting for the axle nut.
      Thanks for your time!
      Greg
