On my Coleman 550 I had a hard time reinstalling the drain plug and the spring loaded strainer after changing my oil.  This is my first time I changed the oil.  I reinstalled the plug without the strainer.  Is this a problem?

I'm not familiar with the strainer on the 550, but you will have a lot better luck creating a new thread with a good title, than piggybacking on an unrelated thread.

I'd put it back in, in case of something , a shaving etc. getting loose in your oil system and causes a catastrophe. I just recently changed my oil for the first time and got the same surprise when the spring and screen popped out. I had difficulty reinstalling it also. The screen sits down in the spring so it stays put, but you have to carefully balance the spring on the oil plug as you get it in place. Once you get it started in the hole, press up firmly to completely compress the spring then twist to engage the threads. Once I figured out how to hold it and position my hand and wrist so that I had enough rotation left in my hand and wrist, it went right in. It would probably help to jack up the rear end, once you have the oil drained so you have more room to maneuver.

When I pressed up firmly against the spring and the plug was flush against the threads, it easily started right in by finger pressure. If it doesn't start easily, then you may not have it pushed up firmly, then the plug may be tilted a little. just don't use a wrench if you can't get it started by your fingers. You're fighting the spring pressure to get it squared up to the threads.

      Does anyone no how to to adjust these shocks. never had shocks with the fast and slow adjustments. But the main problem is it rides ruff. My bike came with the shocks set at 7 1/2" from center of nut to top of spring. The book calls for 5.5" front and 4.7" rear and they say max. Just want to make sure before moving them that far.

      Hello, All!  I've decided to replace the traction batteries in my 2018 Sector E1 with a 48V Lithium set. They may be expensive, but I figure the Discovery Dry Cell are, too. I am not looking for the max driving range, as I have never received near the brochured range to begin with, but a good mix of charge/ get work done/ charge is what I am expecting.
      I have settled on the 48V EAGL kit from bigbattery dot com. Each battery pack provides 30Ah. The kit ships with a charger, as well. The packs would be physically connected in parallel (using a busbar) to one another, maintaining the 48V voltage, but together would be able to provide the amp draw the buggy pulls when going up hill or towing a rake (rated 320 max continuous Amps). This is in comparison to the serial connection the eight 6V lead batteries. Each of the EAGL batteries looks to have its own BMS; am I correct in thinking I will have to use their included charger rather than (simply) changing the onboard charger to lithium mode? The chemistry of the pack is LiFe PO4, for what it's worth.  I haven't torn anything apart yet (to diagram), so  I am not sure how the dash will interpret the AMP draw, but the kit I am looking at includes a dash mounted charge indicator.
      If anyone has completed a similar conversion, do you have any tips? Specifically, how did you remove the original batteries, and how did you secure the new ones? I am guessing that almost any change from the stock batteries would involve at least some modifications. Any tips would be appreciated, especially things I may have failed to consider. Thanks!

      A while back I was looking at an auction UTV plow and the mounting of it.  Looked like it had an "H" bar with two pins that hooked into brackets on the front frame of the UTV.   I have a bunch of 1/4" x2" angle iron, and some 2"x1/2" flat stock in the barn.   I was thinking of welding up a bolt on implement mount that would provide 2 holes about 14" apart, that pins could be used to hook up an "H" frame for a plow or even a straight bar across with pins to hold it in place.   The angle iron "A" would utilize the existing bumper mounting bolts front and bottom, and have the two channels "B" with holes for individual pins or one large bar across. Those channels would be welded to the ends of the angle iron. 
      Anyone ever try this for a front mount?   It would be close to  this one that is for sale on the net.  It is supposed to fit a KFI plow mount.

      I could really use some help identifying some disconnected components on a Yard Sport YS400. The first part is this pipe, which comes out of the exhaust port area or the cylinder. It looks like it had a piece of rubber hose on it, but the hose is gone, and I have no idea what it was previously connected to.

      The second item is this vacuum valve looking thing.  Again only one line is still attached.  What is it's function and what other lines should be connected to it?

      The last thing is this hose, which exits the side top of the fuel tank (not the fuel line hose) but is not connected to anything

      Any help the community could provide would be greatly appreciated.  This UTV belongs to a friend, and I am trying to help him get it running correctly for his kids.
