Question about Seth Thomas Bachman Thomas Annie Clarabel Electric Train Set

2 Answers


I have three Bachman diesel engines one works very well, one moves o.k. but stops at times and need a slight push to get moving again (this one is very noisey also), and the third only lights up but does not move.
all three trains are n-scale. I'm new at model trains so any help would be nice. Thank You

Sounds like the wheels may be dirty on the one . Have you tried cleaning them? The noisey one may need a little grease on the gears. The one that does not move but lights up, not sure. Have you tried to take the body off and see if a wire is disconnected?
Try going on line and look for a group on Yahoo Groups for N-scale. They will probably be more helpful and you will get more information about N scale trains. Good luck!

Mk3 mondeo engine loud ticking like grinding all the time.just had problem with injectors.had all 4 replaced.the garage says piston slap

Is this a new noise your hearing? If your mechanic has correctly diagnosed the noise find more info here:

The distinctive noise of a diesel engine is variably called diesel clatter, diesel nailing, or diesel knock. Diesel clatter is caused largely by the diesel combustion process; the sudden ignition of the diesel fuel when injected into the combustion chamber causes a pressure wave. Engine designers can reduce diesel clatter through: indirect injection; pilot or pre-injection; injection timing; injection rate; compression ratio; turbo boost; and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR).

My 2000 toyota camry 4cyl. seized up on me. out of oil. i can't afford to lose my car. how can i unseize engine? diesel fuel?

All that I can suggest is to remove the spark plugs and put a small amount(1 oz) of Marvel Mystery Oil into the cylinders. Let this soak in for a about 30 minutes. Take a socket to the crankshaft main bolt with a 1/2 break over bar and slowly jelly move the boat forward and back in small amounts and try to get the crank to turn if it does insert more Marvel Mystery Oil and continue until you get the crank to turn fully after turning the crank at least three times then change the oil reinstall the spark plugs and give it a try

the engine is fine- what you are seeing is the transmission fluid flowing fast enough in transmission to cause the speedometer to move- does the transmission slip at all? might be time to have transmission serviced- fluid and filter change.

I have a 2003 kia sportage 2000cc can anyone tell me if the engine on this is a interference or none interference It is registered september 2003 the timing belt has broken and I need to know if the...

The term interference refers to the valves being in the way of the pistons when they move to the top of the cylinder. When the timing belt breaks, the valves will stay in the position they were in when the belt broke, they will not move or "Drop". either way you still need to move the crank and the cam to the alignment positions before installing a new belt. To manually check, you can remove the spark plugs and turn the engine over by hand. it is not too too hard and if you don't hear or feel anything stopping you from turning it by hand then you are in luck, it is a non interference engine. Assuming the engine was running when it broke you should have hear some loud banking if it was an interference engine. The best information i can find says, YES, this is an interference engine.
