From what I am thinking sense you changed the shims now the valve is staying open and not letting it make compression. The way to find out if this has happened is to put the piston to TDC and apply air to the cylinder from threw the spark plug hole. Then see if you can hear air coming from the carb or the exhaust if you do then that valve is open and not seating. Also check the clearance between the cam lobe and the top of the valve or shim. I hope this helps out and please let me know how things work out.

Got a new ktm 450 2003\04 and will not start in the cold have been trying to bump it and still no working and got a new spark plug for it and have been trying to start it for 3 days know when I bump i


You need 3 thing to make an engine run.spark at the right time ,fuel /air ratio to be correct,and compression.Isuspect you have tight intake valves.The valves are to tight letting compression out.To adj valves take your plug out put motor on tdc compression stroke .intake should be .006 exhaust .008.If this checks out to be ok you may have a fly wheel key that sheared and your ignition timing is off.

MOVE EACH CYLINDER TO TOP DEAD CENTER OF COMPRESSION STROKE ( sorry caps on .) check that timing mark in timing cover hole is in line .remove adj cover per cylinder in alignment and adj valves according to mfg specs. to adj : under adj cover , loosen lock nut on top then loosen adj nut on btm @ top of valves . insert feeler gauge under rocker and adj ,this is tricky to say the least. usually takes several tries to get it right, keep trying the valves must be set right or major expenses can be expected to occur. intake and exhaust settings are different normally at least .005 .be sure to tighten locknut on top before checking if clearance is correct. holding the btm nut while turning the locking nut is the tricky part 4 me anyway. 2 valves per cyl. on most atv eng. adj all valves .start eng and listen to eng w/o reving up. any ticking noise and you get to start over. should be smooth idling and quiet. no popping or backfiring. smooth starting and off w/o run on. should not be performed unless you are familiar with the procedure. contact me or service center near you if not sure on procedure.correct adj. is slightly snug fit . valves making no noise when done .

Chain tension adjustor will not tighten. Is it striped?


It might be, but the chain has probably stretched past the limit. If you buy a new chain and match it up to this one, you won't believe the difference. If that is not the problem, take the chain off, take the bar off, clean out the adj screw, make sure it moves, set it back as far as you can, put the bar and chain back on, make sure you are in the drive sprocket, put the nuts on, adj the bar, tighten up the nuts, you should be set. My adj screw gave out long ago, I just pull the bar tight and go. Hope this helps.

2000 HUSKY TE410 -Valve Adjustment - Help


One, you need the original husky shims, unless you are a machinist and familiar with Rockwell hardness ratings. You don't sound like one so you are going to the shop. If you are not fond of driving back and forth to the shop, and paying large amounts of money on shims, let me make a suggestion. You have a thumper, but you have four valves on that cylinder, so proceed as follows. Rotate your engine to first valve. Uae your feeler gauges and measure how much thicker a valve you need, and check out what size shim you have. They pop right out. Write all this down. If you find a valve is too tight, put a thinner one in from another valve. go all the way around. If you are lucky, you will find something like this #1 has a 405 and is .005 too tight, thus needs a 400. #2 has a 410 and is .010 too looose, thus needs a #420. #3 has a 400 and is .010 too loose, thus needs a 410. #4 has a 390 and is .015 too loose, thus needs a 405. Put the shim from #3 in #1, put the shim from #1 in #4, put the shim from #2 in #3 ) and the only thing you need to buy is the #420 shim for #2. Be sure to install the shims with the number side down, or yo will have to measure them with a micrometer. (those are probably all the wrong numbers, but the shim valve adjusting method was really all the same except for the details.) By the way, keep the #410 shim from your changing episode. The only one who undertood it right away was my wife who started letting me in onwho was gaining weight. It turns out that everyone swapped clothes when gaining or losing weight. Now that was a system that was confusing......

Jeep grand cherokee revs for to high before changing gear


Message:
My 2002 Dakota has been somewhat confused about shifting as well. It showed a code P1762. I dropped the pan to install a new fluid filter and fluid-(use only ATF+3 or ATF+4). Since the pan was off I decided to adjust the bands. The front band controls the 2nd gear cluster. The rear band controls the 3rd gear cluster and reverse. For a 2-3 shift, the transmission shifts back to 1st gear with the front band while the rear band engages 3rd gear. If the front band does not release the 2nd gear clutches before the third gear clutches engage, the transmission binds, which shortens the life of the transmission clutches. If the front band releases too early in the shift, the engine will overspeed (sounds and feels like a slip) during the 2-3 shift.
The front band adjusting screw is on the driver's side above the shift linkage. The rear band is inside the fluid pan near the filter.
1. Loosen band adjusting screw locknut. Then back locknut off 3-5 turns. Be sure adjusting screw turns freely in case. Apply lubricant to screw
threads if necessary. The front band adjuster is on the outside of the transmission and the locknut requires a 3/4" wrench.

2. Using Inch Pound Torque Wrench C-3380-A, a 3-in. extension and appropriate Torx� socket (T-40), tighten adjusting screw to 72 in-lb. CAUTION: If Adapter C-3705 (from SPX Miller) is needed to reach the adjusting screw, tighten the screw to only 47-50 in. lbs. torque.

3. Back off adjusting screw the number of turns listed below for your transmission.

4. Hold adjusting screw in place and tighten lock-nut to:

41 N�m (30 ft. lbs.) for the front band
34 N�m (25 ft. lbs.) for the rear band
The adjustment screw inside the case is a square head bolt. You will need a 1/4 square head socket to fit your torque wrench.

From Bill Konolday's 47RE notes: I usually go a little looser than factory
specs on this front band - backing off the adjustment screw 2 or 2 1/4 turns.
Depending on the circumstances I have backed off the band up to 2 1/2 turns.

I just replaced the solenoid with the recommended transducer and all is fine now. The transducer cost me about $50 at a nearby dealership.
