Joyner Trooper steering rack replacement

Since I’ve got about 7.5k mostly off-road miles on the old T4, the steering rack is pretty sloppy!

Installed a new one pretty easily though…

Had to use a new steering u-joint since the spline on the Joyner rack is a bit smaller/metric.

Used Latest Rage part number AC425152

and a 5/8”- 36 spline - 3/4 double D shaft.

      I'm thinking about parting out my 2 Joyner's.  Both have less than 500 miles.   I would also consider selling whole.  I have titles for both and have owned them since new.   Located in northwest Florida.   I'll be in Gatlinburg , TN for Christmas if someone needs a heavy part delivered     Trooper engine has rust on the cylinders and probably won't turn over at this point due to Florida humidity.  The sand spider has a broken input shaft in the rear end, so it needs a new (cheap) input shaft and seal.   It hasn't been cranked in a couple years.  Both are complete.

      1 1/2 years ago I was riding along in my 2018 Coleman 550 Outfitter when the CVT belt broken.  Just prior to that I was having some shifting issues that I now understand can be part of the clutch. Finally a few months ago I sent it in to a shop who put in a new belt as well as a new wet clutch (drum, one way bearing, etc and an oil change) He fired it up and it turned on fine, sounded fine and I took it home. It was an auto shop but not a UTV specific shop. So get it home and after a half hour or so it started making some noises with my 10 year old driving it around. I get home and he said theres noises again and I played around a bit. Within a short bit of trying to drive it around I started having noises that I now understand was my One Way Bearing being destroyed. Aka metal noises from the bearing falling apart.   Of course, after the cost of $800 to take it to a shop plus $200 in gas, trailer rental etc to take it in and back (it was a friends shop that was a bit of ad istance) I was quite ticked and pushed the UTV back into my garage and left it for a while.  Then this past weekend i watched a bunch of Youtube videos along with a mechanic friend to pull things apart.  We found the spindle was loose, opened it up further and found the one way bearing fell apart in my hand and the little bearings were already worn, no longer round and this was from less than a hour of use. THerefore leading me to believe it had very quick failure after the new wet clutch was put in.  We looked things to look for damage further.  Nothing really scratched/grooves etc so I ordered a new OEM bearing and we put it in, sealed it back up, followed the specs of everything and was 110% sure we put the One Way Bearing in correctly.    We rode it around for a hour, sounded fine.   Next day used it, sounded fine for a half hour.   Third day I turned it on and let it idle a little bit and found that I was hearing metal scraping again like I did right after getting my utv back from the shop.  Therefore I am 99% certain the One Way Bearing is about to break again (already breaking)   Its a brand new OEM belt.  Nothing looks off on the spindle.   I do not know for sure if the shop touched the inner race for which, in my understanding, the One Way Bearing spins. I know I may be sounding ignorant here.  I am not a mechanic by any means but I have learned a bit with the recent Youtube videos and attempted repairs.  Whatever that "ufo" looking object is, we replaced the bearings (those black things that spin) I replaced the whole "Ufo" lol... as the original had some wear/tear that prevented it from spinning perfect. Nothing currently
      visibly looks off... and the issue is mostly when the machine is more in an idle.  It was at an idle when the One Way Bearing sorta went kaput the last time.  THe noises is at an idle... but if I can get it drive, its fine.  It also affects the ability to shift the gears. 

      I know I will have to replace the One Way Bearing again... I just dont know what might cause the issue that is destroying the bearinga nd so quickly.   Again, this all started when the belt snapped when I was going about 15 mph down a road on a warm day.  It has higher miles.  The wet clutch was in bad shape and its replaced.   The paperwork says "wet clutch assembly kit")   Is there something that the belt can do to cause damage that might not be as visible but would directly create an issue that lets the bearing get ate right up?? Help me!  I hate this machine and I really want it to run well ... so I can sell it and find something else  haha..

      I purchased a new Landmaster EV lithium. I have only had the vehicle for 5 days. From nearly the first day, it intermittently would not start, either forward or reverse. After waiting a few minutes, it will go in reverse, but not forward. After a few more minutes, it will go forward. This happened several times over three days, and then it had a bigger problem. It would not go forward at all, and I had to drive it in reverse for 400 feet. About 30 minutes later, it could go forward. I called the dealer and told them to come and get it. Does anyone out there have this model? Are you having similar problems?

      I have a 2008 R2 800 that I can’t get get running. I have replaced coils, plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, fuel lines, pressure regulator and injectors. When this started, I could get it to run good for a little while and it would then start “sputtering” and die. Let it “rest” a few minutes and it would go again. The good kept getting shorter and the bad longer ‘til, now, won’t start. Unless it is the ECU or a sensor, I’m at a loss. Getting fire, compression seems to be good. I can pull an injector and turn it over and see fuel. I’m tired of chasing it. Great vehicle for what I need. Is there a replacement engine (and electronics) that will bolt to the Joyner transaxle (or any suggestions on finding and fixing the one I have)? I think I read where an older Civic engine was swapped into, I think, a Trooper.
