    Carb bowl fill level

    Fluctuating bowl level is likely a bad / dirty needle valve and seat. It could also be a bad float, but that is not typically an intermittent problem. If nothing happens (E.g. engine quits) when you turn the mixture screw all the way in, this means that either you have a manifold vacuum leak...

    Carb bowl fill level

    When you have the top cover off, check that the power valve piston moves freely. A power valve stuck open will make it run rich. Make sure that the choke is all the way open. The throttle positioner and high idle have angular measurement specifications on the throttle butterfly plate., but...

    4.5 inch grinding wheels

    I was definitely pushing hard. Hard enough to discolor the metal. I had about 18 feet of ER70S6 beads on 11 gauge steel to grind, fill and paint. I was getting pissed because it looked like it would take 3 hours to finish and my hands were getting sore. The point is that the Cubitron 2 disc...

    Trail gear sliders install

    I put a set of TG 78 inch sliders on my ‘19 Taco DCSB-OR. They are made of 1.75 inch1035 DOM tube which says “made in the USA”, I couldn’t even buy the DOM tube locally for the money. The price has gone up by 50% in the last 6 months.

    Carb bowl fill level

    How do you know it is running rich? This is a serious question because running rich produces carbon monoxide which is odorless. It is not easy to know if it is running rich. If you smell gasoline from the tail pipe, it is misfiring.

    Carb bowl fill level

    Yes. Bending the tab down closer to the needle will raise the float with the assembly upside down.

    Carb bowl fill level

    With the bowl cover off and turned upside down, adjust the float tab that contacts the needle valve so that the float is 7.5 mm above the lid (without gasket). There is a video somewhere on YouTube that shows this.

    replace timing chain sprockets?

    Go ahead and replace the whole shebang: chain, gears, slipper and tensioner. It is surprisingly cheap.

    4.5 inch grinding wheels

    I H8 grinding. I had a big grinding job to do, so I put a new 4.5 inch DeWalt grinding wheel on my angle grinder and 30 minutes later the wheel was worn out and I wasn’t even 20% done yet. I have tried a lot of different grinding wheels and the name brands, Norton, DeWalt, Makita, MiIlwaukee...

    Bleeding brakes: MityVac or Motive?

    My wife didn’t like the idea either, but her attitude changed when I explained that it was for the safety of the kids that I drove to school. Then she was very enthusiastic and diligent. Later on, my kids helped and did a good job.
