Power Steering

Recommended Posts

Been thinking about Power Steering, what if you were to remove the current gear box and replace with 1 or 2 linear actuators and replace the steering wheel with a joystick? Would that be too weird?

Maybe mount something on the steering shaft to activate a switch to drive the actuators.

Not for me. I want/need a steering wheel. There are electric units on some of the ATV now and a friend of mine who has a V8 powered sandrail which has a slick fluid unit. Also at one time I had heard Joyner was going to offer an electric unit as an option on the Trooper. I think the electric unit is the best option as we have a full fledged alternator system on the Trooper, no electric power shortage.

I did a bit of research on electric steering units a year ago after somebody wanted one fitted to their UTV & found that Unisteer Performance Products with their universal electric steering kit was the one to go for. The enquiry I made was for a Commando 4 seater so you will have to send in a few measurements. The direct link is:

Pretty pricey though, but just like electric fans they don't steel power from the engine.

Cheers Mike.

      I had to rebuild my steering box recently and need to replace the 2 square dust boots on the box. Joyner does not have them in stock and probably won't anytime soon. Does anyone know of an alternate replacement for these? Any help would be appreciated

      Hey guys. I have a 2010 Hisun 800 UTV I’m rebuilding. When shifting from neutral to any of the gears, it grinds a little before actually going in gear. After that it runs and drives great. I bought some parts from  Motorcycle Doctor on eBay including a new CVT belt. I called them today and he said it may be the clutch. The belt isn’t moving at all while it’s idling. Has anyone else had this issue? A new cvt clutch is $500. I just want to be sure that’s the problem before I order it.

      Just purchased a 2018 Hisun Sector 250. The gear shift is hard to engage. Tried depressing the brake pedal, no change. Tried with the engine running and turned off, no change. The gear shift cable, from the dash to the trans seems to be grinding. With my hand on the cable I can feel it grinding, vibrating, as the gear shift is moved up or down. Can this cable be removed and greased or does it just need to be replaced?

      I have a 2018 model Hisun 450 EFI UTV. I have done over 6000 trouble free kilometers. About 4 weeks ago i felt that utv was not performing like it should. Done a compression test and found to be low. Replaced rings as they were worn. I drive in a very dusty environment. The problem of low power is still there. I have checked cam timing, valve clearances, compression up to 9.5 bar, done leak down test and valves are seating, stripped and cleaned fuel pump, removed and cleaned throttle body, checked for leaks on throttle body manifold, replaced spark plug, tested stator coil, tested hv coil,  checked all electrical connections, checked injector. UTV starts easily and idles for 5 seconds and cuts out. When utv starts, it will rev up the first time and then start to miss as if it goes into a limp mode. If i lift my foot of the accelerator utv will idle for 2 seconds and then die. It starts immediately again. Would the air flow/ air pressure sensor or exhaust gas(lambda) sensor cause this. I cannot test them as dont know the correct values. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

      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!
