Being that this bike is vintage. You prob have points if not then you have a magneto and coil on the left side you will see wires coming out of the case by where your foot would be. There should be like 6 or 8 phillips head bolts to take case off. Look and inspect and see if maybe you did not tighten the magneto by the flywheel it should be two screws. Try that if the doesnt help. try to jump across the coil from one side to the other see if it fires. If that doesnt help. You may need new cdi box. If theres points I cant help you much never dealt with them much myself sorry. Hope this helps ya.

    I am trying to think about what the points look like it has been a while... the point need adjusted I think but I am not sure what it looks like on those bikes

    But there should be screws to adjust the points. You will see spark when toying with them if you are going the right way once you get a good spark from the points then try the plug to see if it sparks

Engine won't start- I have changed gas, I have a good spark, and no air blockages


Put a nice new spark plug in the engine and clean the carb with carb cleaner. Spray some cleaner in the carb throat, and put some liquid carb cleaner in the fuel tank.

Considering purchasing 1967 Austin Healey 3000 BJ8; and want to know what type of standard problems I should expect.


Carbs need to be cleaned regularly. If yours is a Solex, merely pop off the top and clean the piston and surrounding cylinder. Lightly oil and reassemble. Makes all the difference.
The gearbox has a bit of a fuzzy history which includes weak synchros, aside from that, I love these cars...had three of them.
The engine is generally solid, but can have multiple oil leak problems. New seals fixes, but it's a PIA.
Body rot is common. Rust everywhere. Arrest it ASAP.
Great fun to drive. Happy motoring!

Yamaha warrior bogs when i go over rough terrain and back fires


When the bike is on rough ground the engine is under more strain so this may be a sign that the spark plug, lead or coil is failing.

Karcher Power Washer -power is intermittent. it fires up, goes for maybe 10 seconds then loses power/pressure. Does not seem to get to full power.Water is flowing at all times, but power comes and goes.


Sounds like the unloader is cruddy with mineral deposits and sticking, if you pry off the silver cap, remove the black cover, use an Allen wrench to remove the two "star" screws (or you can remove the four engine mounts and remove the whole engine), lift out the white plastic part with the brass needle & spring, finally lift out the stainless steel piston or start up the engine (make sure you have the water hooked up and running) and watch out for the piston as it will shoot out ( placed a towel over the piston before starting the engine). Then you can put white lithium grease all over the piston and reassemble

Mazda 929 1993 model timing belt changed but it won't start


Run a compression check on the engine, you may find several to all cylinders at zero to very low readings due to the engine being an interference engine--which means that if the timing belt breaks while running, valves and pistons will lose their reference to each other and cause several to many collisions between those multiple components. The compression check will confirm this. The proper fix in this case is to remove the cylinder head(s)(if a V6) and inspect the valves and pistons for damage, replacing either bent valves, or punched through pistons. In any case, this will likely cost a bundle of cash to fix. If not reassembled correctly, this problem could reoccur when you try to start it again. Best to have a lot of confidence in the person doing the repairs! You might look at replacing the engine outright with a new or professionally rebuilt engine from another country. The proper time to replace the timing belt is before it breaks! Hope this helps!

Calipers are hung up


This usually happens after a long period of storage: the first time you apply the brakes, they fail to release their grip on the brake rotors. Moisture in the system causes corrosion to develop which prevents the caliper pistons from retracting when the brake lever (or brake pedal) is released.

What you need to do is take the calipers apart and remove the pistons. With the pistons removed, carefully pry out the rubber piston seals and soak everything in soapy water. Using a dental instrument or similar device, be sure to clean all of the corrosion from the groove where the piston seal fits into the caliper. Replace the seal and reassemble everything using clean DOT3 brake fluid as it goes back together.

Refill the system with new brake fluid and bleed out the air. Once completed, your brakes should work like new.

Dirt bike thats hard to start..


needle and seat are worn out in carb, to much fuel is flooding cylinder. remove carb, clean, get new needle and seat, set float. problem goes away. pull your plug after kicking. its probably wet.
When you push, or pull start you evacuate excessive fuel, when engine is warm, easier to start extra fuel burns easier.

Almost new McCulloch 7800 won't start.


This is a typical problem with small engines that are not used often or only used seasonally

The problem exist when it is not prepped for storage properly, meaning that the fuel is not shut off and the engine allowed to burn off the remaining fuel that's left in the carburetors float bowl, causing the un-spent fuel to sour and later creating a condition called varnishing which clogs the carburetor venteries

All of these steps will require the use of skin and eye protection!!!

The solution is to replace the old fuel in the tank with fresh, its not a bad idea to replace the fuel filter at this time, then with the petcock in the off position remove the carburetor float bowl, inspect the gasket or seal for imperfections (replace as needed) and clean it along with the float assy. and piston check valve with a spray type carburetor & choke cleaner and gently wiping with a clean lint free cloth so as to remove all yellowish colored varnish and any debris, before reassembly place a glass or metal catch pan or bowl under the carburetor and turn the petcock to the on position to allow fresh fuel to flush out the fuel line and now LIGHTLY & GENTLY (without resistence) lift the float up, the fuel should stop flowing. If it does not stop, repeat cleaning procedure. If it does turn the petcock to off and reassemble. After reassembly turn the petcock to on, the engine should run.

Another preventive step is the use of a product called STA-BIL fuel stabilizer
