Who knows what I'll find. What would be some required tools for the top end/valve job? It may be worth getting a few much needed 4 stroke tools for the shop since the mode is being set and a 4 stroke four stroke is the only thing I see in the future for my youngest kid. Unfortunately he'll never get to use a 125 competitively in this much changing industry. I've always did my own maintenance and I won't stop because of it. You are going to need the regular metric sockets to get the head and everything off. You are also going to need to get a valve spring compressor. Just a note though. Make sure you get a bunch of bags and put the valves keepers, and shims seperate and know where they go. You can not swap valves. make sure to label them like left exhaust right exhaust and dont swap them out. Other then that you should be good to go. Not to hard of a job,,,

I have a 1986 pontiac fiero 4 cyl. 5 spd . the clutch is moving fine , and so are the cables , but when you let the clutch out , nothing happens , the car does not move .


Does the pedal have "free play" at the top? Perhaps some adjustment is possible. If not, may be time to replace clutch disk.

Back drum break making sounds click click click as I apply the breaks obviously as I slow down so does the clicking sound


Hi Aaron, I believe you'll find that a brake shoe retainer or one of the springs has come adrift in the assembly. ou may like to do the job yourself or take it to a shop. If you would like to do the job, let me know and we'll walk through it together. You will probably need replacement parts, so keep that in mind when deciding. Regards John

Any tips on changing a standard trans in a 2000 Saturn SC. I've never done it before?


I suggest that you get the vehicle specific manual for the exact process but here's the general idea:

Remove:
The hood, the front axle nut on both sides, the tie rod ends, and ball joint, as much of the brake system and suspension as necessary to get the axles removed.

Then, with it up in the air on sturdy ramps/supports:

CV Axles (making sure to put blanks (broom stick handle cut off) in their place to prevent anything in the transaxle from slipping out of place, the starter, shift linkage, grounding straps/wiring harness, shift cables, speedo cable or wiring as applicable, sometimes both, any lines, cables, wiring that is going to the transaxle. Remove the slave sylinder and set it to the side and tape it to prevent if from coming apart or being damaged.

You'll need to loosen the motor mounts and possibly remove the coolant hoses to the engine as you may need to tilt the engine downward to get the trans. released and have room to pull it out.

REMEMBER THE EXACT ANGLE YOU USED TO PULL IT OUT, THAT'S HOW YOU'LL NEED TO REINSTALL IT!!!!!

You should have everything out of the way, a hoist over the engine/trans compartment hooked to a sling around the transaxle to lower it and remove it from the bottom side once you remove the transmission mount and the bellhousing bolts.

There is a bar designed to hold the engine in place so that it doesn't tilt too much, you'll have to fabricate a means from underneath or above for that.

Many of these FWD manufacturers say you can't change the trans without pulling the motor too! I've not found that to be true. It has been difficult though as space is limited and positioning is everything!

It is best to replace everything, clutch, throw-out bearing, pilot bushing/bearing, pressure plate and use a good alignment tool when putting everything back together.

If the flywheel isn't perfect, you may want to remove it and have it resurfaced at a machine shop.

IT's not a job you'll want to do more than once in a short period of time.

Good luck !

When i pull the cord it sounds and tries to start but just doesnt start


Chances are, you've left some gas sit in it and the carburetor needs to be cleaned. You can do it yourself, but there are lots of tiny parts and it's better left to a professional, if you're not too savvy with such things. There are plenty of Youtube videos, if you'd like to tackle this yourself. Just be very careful to put everything back the way it came apart; especially the carb linkage and springs or you'll have even worse problems on your hands. Best of luck to you and I hope this info helps.

Need to change head gasket ,, how much trouble am i looking at


It is a fairly involved job. You will need to remove the intake & exhaust manifold. The head then must be removed and cleaned. Take the head to a machine shop and have it inspected for warpage. Unless you are really handy I suggest you have this done by a pro. A Chilton's or Hayne's Repair Manual for your Suzuki will be of immense help if you decide to tackle it.

When kneeding dough by the time the last of the flour is added the mixer does not have enough power to kneed it. A year ago it did but has gradually lost power. I have taken the gear head apart and...


HI KEN9486, from the way you describe your mixer’s malaise, the apparent lack of power during the dough mixing process does not appear to be to be a mechanical issue, but electrically induced. You’ve already put your fingers on the culprit – the brushes! Anytime your mixer’s brushes have been worn down as much as you indicated, they should be replaced.
Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand to order the correct brushes. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) but check to verify this matches your mixer model.
On Pages 6 and 7, you will find the brush & spring assembly (Illus. No. 29) and Part No. 9706416 that you need to order. Replace them both.
Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
I think you’ll find new ‘life’ in your mixer after you’ve replaced the brushes and it should be able to handle dough mixing without further problems. Good luck, I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Where does the speed control spring go on a kitchen aid k5ss


Hi NG345, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! It sounds like you’ve got the right part to fix your mixer, now you just want to install it correctly. The good news is that your replacement spring can be installed quite easily (OK, maybe a little effort) by yourself, if you are a DITY type person and feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty. Be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand, too. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled “Motor And Control Parts”, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. You’ll want to focus on Illus. Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5; Pivot screw, Spring washer, Speed control assembly lever, Control plate spring, and Speed Link & Cam, respectively. Your speed control assembly is attached to the bottom of the top part of the mixer’s head (or Illus. No 1, Gearcase Motor Housing, on pgs 4 & 5).
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel this repair is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping.
Good Luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Hello again LESZCZ2. Sorry for not replying sooner to your clarification. You don’t need to send me photos. I think I now understand what you are describing. Your mixer head ‘locking’ mechanism is not working correctly. Is that correct?
I hope you’ve been able to download your mixer’s Parts List manual. If you haven’t, I suggest downloading a PDF version from the KA website: (http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home).
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, KSM150 and select one the files listed for your model that appears under Parts List (61): KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB) and save that file to your PC.
Turn to pages 5, titled ‘Base and Pedestal Unit’. Locate Illus. Nos. 11, Link & Lever Latch, which includes Illus. Nos. 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17.
You will need to disassemble your mixer head top to inspect this assembly and carefully inspect the latch parts. It is possible that the link (Illus. No. 16) has broken or become unattached from either the latch (Illus. No. 10 or the lever (Illus. No. 17); or possibly the assembly has just become loose and needs to be tightened. A visual inspection will determine what you need to do.
If you find you need to order repair parts, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. You should be search for ‘food grade grease’. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. I don’t know if you’ll be able to find any vendors that carry KA parts in Poland, but you could try online.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble and reassemble your mixer, should you decide to go that route.
If you feel troubleshooting and repairing is beyond your capability, then I would seek out a local small appliance repair shop in your area. KA Customer Care can give you names of local KA authorized repair shops in your area, but you can also do an online search to supplement what KA may provide you. Call to explain your circumstances and find out their hourly rate and get an estimate of what they think it would cost to repair your mixer. Also, always obtain three or more estimates – do some comparison shopping. Again, it may be difficult to find an appliance repair shop that handles KA where you live in Poland.
I hope this is more helpful than my first solution. Howard, Burke, VA

General


The two most important aspects of four-stroke maintenance are frequent oil/filter changes, and regular valve clearance checks/adjustments. And some four-strokes (RMZ450 for example) have a manual timing chain tensioner that must be regularly checked/adjusted. Everything else is exactly like a two-stroke.
