Clutch again!

Recommended Posts

Talked to my dealer today, Tyler at Epic Motorsports in Saint George, UT, and he wants to come. He will be bringing a supercharged Trooper with nitrous oxde. He said he will try to get it tuned in in time. This guy goes way extreme in everything he does. His rock crawling jeep has a cat engine. He says that it has so much torque that he struggled to find a dirve line that would hold it. You'll like him, he is a fun guy. Said he might birng his promotional trailer and do a big banner. This is turning out to have a lot of people between all the guys, wives and those with kids and a few dogs. Would someone like to volenteer to contact the magazines. I'll bet they will want some pics and stories.


Hello Lenny. Your dealer sounds like a sharp hot rod kind of guy. Can you ask him if he has concerns about the clutch with the added power? If he does, what are his plans? What or who makes the current replacement clutch besides Joyner? I know I am beating this to death but this is a future weak link.

I'm not so sure that the clutch in his app. will be as much of an issue as it is for our big tires. I don't think he is planning to rip through the gears but once in a gear he can really go. In the dunes for example. I did ask him if he thought the engine and drivetrain would take the power, he said "I don't know". He is not shy to tackle any kind of modification job. If he blows a rearend, he'll just put a subaru dif in it. If he blows the clutch he will retrofit something else on it. He sort of doesn't worry about it until it happens then he comes up with a plan. He is always doing something over the top. I think you will like him.

I had to go down a very long steep rock crawler trail a couple weekends ago. By the end of the trail (I actually don't think it was a trail at all in retrospect) my clutch was making a lot of stink and it was slipping quite a bit. I see the clutch as a weak link and would love to upgrade. Has anyone successfully done this yet?

      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!

      Hello there, I have 4 T2 troopers, 2 of them start and run like Champs, 2 of them have the issue. They will crank and crank but not start. Takes about 20 to 30 minutes to get them going, then they will run all day long and fire up at will every time. It's just the cold start they have a problem with. Since I have 2 that run good, I have swapped every part you can think of from the fuel system to ignition system with no success. I'm pretty stumped and am looking for any advice

      Hi, I'm getting ready to supercharge my trooper and I'm looking for advice on the setup. So far I have... a AMR500 supercharger, small intercooler, Dolbeck EJK fuel controller and wideband. Looking for any advice on what else I'm going to need and what to expect..Thank you

      We have solved the tie rod problem. We use a heim joint chromoly and spacer.It comes with a seal and a plated bolt.This will last for years.Do not put a zerk fitting in heim.That only increases dirt getting in
      Thanks Rich

      I have a 2009 Trooper that when I first start it it runs great but after about a min it starts to cut out under acceleration but clears out when it gets revved up.  I downloaded the manual from   Joyner-usa.com   but it doesn't help much,  Mine doesn't have a OBD port on it and my son who is a mechanic said he can wire one in if we have a wiring diagram for the CPU but the wiring diagram of the CPU that is in the manual is for a 3 cylinder engine.  The manual talks about a MIL light that can flash out a code but I don't know where that is and even if I did find it they  don't tell me how to read it.  I have tried the coil and the map sensor and that didn't help I checked the TPS and it checks OK.  I emailed Joyner and all I got from them is there should be a OBD port on it and then they said they checked and found some don't have it,  No help from them. Anybody run into this problem or know were I can turn to get some help on this, even a good wiring diagram of the CPU would be a big help.
      Thanks for you help
