Of course). There is nothing mentioned of this in the service manual. The workshop manual says 'clean' when you are reassembling the engine after a complete teardown. I don't do that very often . There's no risk things fall apart when loosing the cover?Yes just undo the plug on the side near gear selector. Be careful with screen as it is plastic and has o-rings to seal it. Clean with degreaser works best I feel. Reassemble putting screen fully in first then carefully screwing plug back in.,

I need to know the proper tuning of ucal mikuni carburetor with mixture adjusting screw on bottom of cabr (beneath float bowl), an idle adjust screw and pilot screw (hopefully pilot fuel screw since s


Why did you need to clean the carb? Routine servicing of the aircleaner would keep the carb clean for life. The pilot screw should be 1.5 turns out approx. with a small adjustment either way. Idle speed is set to a smooth low idle.If this doesn't fix it have you got something in the carb not replaced correctly? The float needle/float assy? How did you clean it? Have you introduced fluff/dirt into the carb and did you blow it clean with an airline?

3s fse engine


Hi Joe, Open the bonnet (hood) and somewhere close to the gearbox and mounted above it is a closed socket with 'Diagnostic Socket' Open it and inside the lid there should be a directory. With a wire, bridge between T1 and E and then turn on the ignition and count the flashes. Let me know the number of flashes and the sequence. We'll then figure out the problem together. Regards John

I have a Toro 4 cycle gas trimmer that won't stay running. Starts, then sputters, then dies. I've changed the oil, drained fuel & put in new fuel.


check to make sure the air filter and the fuel screen are clean, the screen is the little white plastic piece on the end of the hose in the tank. if it is still sputtering try cleaning the bell out on the carb. it is the little metal cylinder on the bottom of the carb where it holds the fuel until it evaporates into the engine if it gets clogged the engine will not run properly.

How do I change a oil pump


  1. Drain the oil
  2. Remove the oil pan. You may have to lift or tilt the engine or remove frame members of the vehicle to do this, so it's probably the hardest part. Clean the gasket and seal surfaces on the engine block and crankshaft end bearings. Clean the oil pan. While you have the bottom of the engine open, inspect the cylinders for score marks and check for other anomalies such as sloppy piston bushings on the crank.
  3. Remove the oil inlet screen housing if it blocks access to the oil pump mounting bolts.
  4. Remove the oil pump. Clean the gasket/O-ring surface where it meets the engine block.
  5. Pour some clean oil into the outlet of the new oil pump (not so full you spill it when you install it). This will help it get oil into the engine more quickly on its first startup.
  6. Be sure you have the outlet gasket or O-ring in place!
  7. Install the new pump
  8. Clean or replace the filter screen assembly. Replace its O-ring and install on the oil pump.
  9. Reassemble the rest of the vehicle, using new gaskets and seals on the oil drain pan.
  10. Fill the new oil filter about 1/2 full of oil and install (always do this - it reduces the time the engine is turning dry after an oil change). This does not apply to vehicles that have open-face filters mounted in the bottom of the oil pan such as the 1980's Buick four-cylinder models.
  11. Add the rest of the oil in the usual manner.

Makes a irritating squealing noise most of the time?


In a dehumidifier most squealing noises are related to the fan motor or the fan motor shaft. Following the Owners Manual instructions for removing the unit's cabinet for routine maintenance. Lubricate the fan shaft with some light sewing machine oil or a similar oil. That should solve the annoying squeal. And while you've got the cabinet dismantled, do some routine maintenance, like cleaning the refrigerant coils and any other dust or lint you see.

Hope this helps you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The car leaks oil only when engine runs, intermittently,a trail of oil yesterday as moved out of garage ,today nothing .looks to be comming from valve cover,which happens routinely with these engines but...


the oil could be leaking from valve cover and sitting in a bottom engine cover(plastic covers on bottom of car) and oil trail when move, will leak more when engine hot as oil gets thinner and easier to escape. Would replace gaskep asap or will cover engine in black sticky muck which is not nice to try and clean and engine oil is not the best thing to get off your garage floor.

Possibly carb issue. Check idle mixture screw, try opening screw when engine is hot and running otherwise, disassemble and clean carburetor.
