You have to break the engine in on 5 tanks or fuel the only way to be sure it a 3.3 is measure the piston diameter open the low speed needle just a little like an eighth of a turn the one on the barrel of the carb

I have a 10 hp tecumsen on a colman maxx 5000. The starter rope rips the unit up when I try to start it. I have been told that the govener in the engine is broke. I need to know how to get the armetor...

Your engine likely uses a tapered shaft. The alternator / generator portion is put onto the shaft, and as the screws are tightened, it is forced tightly onto the shaft. You will need a puller to get it off. Sometimes, if you disassemble the alternator to get to the end housing closest to the engine, there will be threaded bolt holes that are not used for anything. Putting a bolt (1/4x or 5/16x " bolts usually) will allow you to push the alternator off the shaft.

Unless you have been able to find governor parts already, it likely will end up being easier to replace the entire engine itself. Tecumseh is out of business (about 3 years now, I think. At least 2), and parts are quickly drying up. I have had pretty good luck with the Honda Clones from Harbor Freight. Just FYI.

My t maxx 2.5 is driving and steering by itself. when the engine isnt running everything works fine, but as soon as i start it it drives and steers and i have no control. ive taken it to many places...

Sounds like an antenna problem. Make sure the antenna is isolated from any metal of the chassis or engine. Also make sure the antenna is not damaged anywhere. You could try purchasing crystals on a different frequency, but I think that it is more likely a mechanical issue.

Just bought used yesterday dodge 3500 diesel dually. engine light ok yesterday. today engine light on and off, what to do? no warrant on vehicle

you can bet they turned it off right before you got it, so the light would not be on when you picked it up.. In order for the light to come on, the computer runs tests. if a test fails 2 times, it turns the light on. they knew it had a problem, period. If you have a contract I think you have 3 days to back out. I am probalbly wrong,but try it anyhow, bluff them. Tell them you want it fixed. Car dealer or private sale??? if its a private sale, you may be stuck. Call dealer be nice and tell them the light is on, play dumb and tell them you want it fixed, dont sign anything.

I just bought a 01 neon. The previous owner said he had to boost his car as he left his lites on. Now the stereo doesn't work. It has 3 lights flashing on I think the equalizer. I am told it is a antitheft...

I was under the impression that the dealer would give customers the code for their radio for free. Check with the last owner and see if he has it and knows how to enter it to get it working. When you get the code, save it. I haven't kept a factory radio for longer than it took to drive home from wherever I bought a vehicle, so, don't know how to enter the code. There is a code saver (small battery that keeps power in system) that you can buy/ use to prevent this in the future if you need to service battery.I'd also check with a different dealer...perhaps they won't be so greedy...
Good luck

2006 Malibu Maxx ss hard shifting/Check engine light

There is no dip stick. Its most likely not the fluid. These malibu's use the first generation GM LAN system. Check the data cord comming from the transmission near the mechanical shifting linkage. Alot of these shifting issues and errors are from a break in the wiring causing bad data to be sent/rvcd to/from the computer control module- these cars are electronically controled shifted, not mechanical.

42'' LG Plasma bought in Australia doesn't work in UK?

Find out if Australia uses a different standard of HD programming than Guernsey or not since it's not picking up any channels at all with an attenna. Does the skybox use only scart connections and that's how your small lcd is connected to it?

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use

I also have the same problem I phoned Samsung today to explain the tv was only 14 months old, they didn't wanna no because it was out of warrenty by 2 months. I am getting a black solid line down the left hand side of the screen. I ended up phoning Dixons were we bought it from, they have told me to get an independent engineers report done & send the report to them within 14 days. Dixon told me it was a known problem with Samsungs. They said they will fix it free of charge if they can if not they will send vouchers to the same value of the television. So beware stay clear of Samsungs.
