Wake up, time to get going

Recommended Posts

What has happened? I think everybody died. Nobody is posting.

I figured too much time has passed without anybody shaking the bushes so I figured I would give it a try. I've done a few things to my Trooper that I thought might be of interest. First off, I tore out my electrcal 4 wheel drive switch which has proved to be unreliable. I replaced it with a mechanical one. I basicly use a portion of the back side of the existing plastic box. This has a sleeve which plugs into the diff that has an O-ring and a shaft seal for the pin that stickis out of the diff. The pin defaults to the front dif being engaged which is pinout. When it's pushed it (4 wheel disengaged ), it pushes against a spring in the dif which which pushes it out ( 4 wheel engaged ) when the pin is released. I took the existing spring in the OEM box and used it to push the pin in. when I pull the lever back on the dash, it cmpresses this spring which allows the dif to disengage when when ready rather then when I pull the lever. The lever on the dash is a over center cam type setup so it either springs to the up position or down position switching about mid way in it's stroke. Works real good and is reliable.

In the picture of the mechanism on the dif, you'll see that my steering column has a hose clamp on it. The inner shaft was a little loose in the outter one so I put a 1/8" wide by a thicness that took up the play peice of steel and tapped it in between the two shafts. The hose clamp holds it from comming out. No more steering column rattle.

I also added a grab handle for the passenger side. The main round shafts are from a crutch which has real strong aluminum that can still be welded and It has a way to adjust the position of the handle already done for you. I get good grip on the dash plastic which is quite thick ( close to 3/16" ) and at a corner which spreads the stress real well. The other end is anchored to the lower frame of my windsheild. It's feels very strong without any dash flex when I pull hard on it. I have been concerned with the passengers arms should I crash or roll over. I'M not real confortable with wrist restraining straps. I want to be able to exit as quick as possible. I use camlock seat harnesses to I can be out in an instant. The driver can hold the steering wheel tight in an accident and now so can the passenger keeping arms out of harms way.

Well this is long enough to make up for the lack of post the last few days. Kinarfi stopped to visit on his way to Las Vegas over the weekend. I enjoyed meeting him and his wife and chatting with them for a while. He and his wife are both real nice.

Have fun

Lenny

Good idea Lenny, you might be able to do some of these as an exchange unit on ebay. Get them to send the existing hardware together with a pre-paid return address.

Cheers Mike.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper fueling problem

      Fuel pump runs but nothing is getting tô it. I tried putting a vacuum on the outlet hose of pump and it wouldn't pull anything. This machine sat for a year and a half unused. Is there a way to prime the lines?  What could be the cause of the fuel not getting tô the pump?

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!
