* barkbusters for the handlebars -- a kind of bracket that clips on over the front of the control levers, protecting your knuckles from rear-view mirrors and the levers from bending backwards when the bike gets knocked over. * headlight modulator -- a device that makes your headlight vary its brightness up and down 4 times a second and makes you more conspicuous. * brakelight modulator -- a device that makes your brakelight flicker ~4 times a second for about a second when you hit the brakes. * front running lights -- two-filament bulbs in your turn signals to light them up at 5W all the time. * a louder horn

What would cause a 2004 dodge caravan to start jerking and cutting out at 3 thousand RPM's


Does it cut out at 3000 rpm in ANY gear, or just at highway cruise in high gear? I ask this because what can happen is that if you spend a lot of time cruising at one speed (long-distance commuter, over-the-road driver), what can happen is the the TPS (throttle position sensor) will get a dead spot on it from excessive wear. This will cause bucking, drop-offs, a stuttering whenever you happen to hit the dead spot. Typically, timing or ignition-type problems are not going to be rpm dependent, although they may be felt more prevalently a certain speeds/rpms. Transmission issues usually occur at shift points, and not at cruise speeds.

How To Clean Commutator Using Commutator Stone
Did you use a commutator stone when installing the new brushes? A commutator stone is used to remove carbon build up from the commutator of a motor or alternator, which is created from worn brushes. The commutator is the internal part of the motor or alternator that spins and makes contact with the motor or alternator brush.
BE ADVISED: The dust created from cleaning the commutator is a carbon dust. Use caution when removing dust so as not to inhale.
If servicing the motor or alternator without removing from the unit, be sure to disconnect power from the machine.
To remove the carbon build up from the commutator, first remove the brush from the motor or alternator. Insert the commutator stone into the brushes place in the motor or alternator. Apply slight pressure against the commutator stone and by hand, slowly turn the motor or alternator shaft. As you are turning the shaft of the motor or alternator, the commutator stone cleans away the carbon that has built up on the commutator.
Use a vacuum hose to suck out the dust debris or tip the motor/alternator over and allow the carbon dust to fall out.

I am also attaching a video on how to install the brushes just for an extra reference.

Have a 2005 PT Cruiser, automatic transmission that will not start. Key turns and all lights and accesaries come on. No clicking, and does not crank, Battery has good voltage. This happened a couple of...


My thought is the neutral safety switch is failing., or the gear selector linkage is out of adjustment-im not familiar with pt cruiser drivetrains, but the neutral safety switch allows a vehicle to start in only park, or neutral. Switch is located somewhere on the trans housing. Loose gear selector linkage can also be the culprit. My advice is to purchase a haynes, or chiltons repair manual specific to your cruiser's model year and follow the troubleshooting sequence for each. this will save you a lot of cash-

Checked fuses all of them r good the bike will not start has new battery


Check the safety switches, specifically the neutral detect and clutch safety.
If the bike thinks it's in gear, or that the clutch isn't pulled in, it won't start!
Check the wiring to the starter relay.

How to exchenge the brushes


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 16:04 Tues afternoon.

Sorry but you may not like this answer!

I strongly recommend changing the motor. If you manage to change the brushes in the motor they might last only a short while- maybe months- because they will not seat properly on the motor commutator- not unless a lot of skilled work is carried out on the commutator.
I know motors are expensive but this is my best solution.

Good luck

Tiller safety tips


* As with any garden equipment, especially gas-powered, you should make sure you have adequate protective gear. * Safety goggles, work gloves and earplugs are all necessities. * Wear sturdy, steel-toed boots if you have them; if not, wear your most durable close-toed footwear. * If you plan to be out in the sun for a long time, don't forget a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen too!
