There is a threaded rod at the master cylinder that may be too tight causing the brakes to drag. You can remove the calipers and force the slave cylinders back and forth looking for drag. If brake fluid is dirty, it may be causing the the pressure to not release and you need to flush with fresh brak...

When the engine is running, the st a tpr is spinning and making AC voltage. The AC is fed into the regulator/rectifier to convert to DC. When off measure battery voltage. When running measure it again - It should be higher. If the voltage goes up, it is charging and your battery is failing. If the v...

Dazon also sold an odd ball 175cc - Snap some more pictures of it. If it is a 175, you are better off with an engine swap.

The black device on your carburetor is the fuel enricher. Rather than choking air, it adds additional fuel until the enricher warms up. If the enricher is faulty or broken or if there is no power to it, the engine will always run rich.

Make sure the intake between the head and carburetor is not leaking. Spray carburetor cleaner on the intake while the engine is idling and listen for a change in engine speed.

Verify you getting sufficient fuel out of the tank by watching the petrol level in filter when you give it throttle.

Some guys use the electric power steering units out of GM/Saturn vehicles. VW rails use the same centerload rack and pinion box as the buggies, but I have not looked at the UTV's to know what crosses over without fab work.

The engine is a copy of the Suzuki SOHC F8B with throttle body injection. I would start with some of the 80's Suzuki engines with TB and see how closely your wiring matches up. My first step would be chase the grounds and make sure they are clean and then go through the connectors looking for poor c...

The AICV is an emission control and does not affect the engine unless completely blocked off. You can run the hoses to PCV filters instead.

The transmission is a Suzuki F Series 4-speed. Maybe search the micro car sites for a good manual since I have not seen one on the buggy side.

Interesting that you used the stock transmission. That transmission is used on 2G24, F8B and F10A engines which I believe are all lower rated than the G10.

You most likely will not find those values. I would base the torque on grade 3 hardware at that diameter using standard charts.

Did you do a compression test before tear down? Look for egging out of the cylinders and scarring.

It is easier to split the engine from transmission rather than taking both out at once.

I ran safety wire through the sprocket and chain to keep it in time and then unbolted the sprocket. When puttining it back together, you just need to make sure the cam is not out by 180 degrees.

I removed the sprocket from the cam when I was pulling my head.

Have you been using the illustrated parts breakdown provided in theJoyner manual? What about the additional service manual I providea in the past for 650 Kinroad?
