ELECTRICAL POWER FAILURE

Recommended Posts

Saturday I was exploring and all of a sudden the engine quit. I thought "ah shucks" or something like that. After a brief cool down I turned the key to start and it sputtered and quit. After that zilch. None of the instruments had power so I checked for power at the battery and there I found the problem.

The 50 amp fuse had gotten hot and MELTED INSIDE THE FUSE HOLDER! Apparently there was a intermittent open that caused some arcing inside the case, to the point that it had continuity at times and other times it went open. The fuse itself wasn't blown. I cut the fuse block out and pigtailed the wires together and everything worked fine until I could do a proper repair.

So! Be aware this could be an isolated incident - or a potential problem spot.

      Hello.  I have 2006 kawasaki mule 3010 trans 4x4 that has the drivers side wheel turning inwards while the passenger side is straight.  What would cause this to happen and what would you suggest to repair.  Thanks.  Adjusted the tie rods, but wont fix this.

      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!

      The weather fooled me again... I'm ready for it to warm up and stay warm.

      A few pictures (so far) of the engine work - eventually I will share wiring info and other details (if anyone is interested?)  should anyone else ever need to swap an engine in one of these. The replacement engine is a Harbor freight $750 special 670cc,  (lawn mower/industrial type lump) with a few minor upgrades. Should have it back together soon, bolted in. The cold weather slows me down!
