BMW Z4 convertible top opened and now wont close. Motor runs then stops. Latch is stuck and the emergency pull cord will not release. How do I get to the latch to free the top?


try a spray lubricant into the motor mechanism and grease any visable wire cables that run from/to motor ,not the electrical cables the bare wire winder cables,also grease/ lubricate any accessable pivot/hinge points , gently pull the cord and gently push the roof back and forth occasionally trying motor with a bit of patience this should get the roof moving , also look for anything that may be snagging the roof/mechanism as there is a pressure protection system to stop the roof being fully closed on say someones hand so preventing injury

If my generator shut off due to low lubricant will it reset automatically? If not is there a reset valve/button?


The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

What type of load (electrical) was hooked up to this generation?? If the surge voltage and current was exceeded above the generator maximum for any length of time. There problems, it could be the regulator, insulation burnt off the windings.


I am taking a guess here. Now, 7100 Watts is it typical surge wattage. This mean that the generator will deliver 7100 Watt (voltage times current) this is know as the power factor. The actual operating load would be 6800 Watts and I would even operator the generator at its peak wattage. Something in the neighborhood of 10--15% less the peak wattage. Therefore a good positive theatrical Wattage would be 5800 to 6350 operating wattage. Then this generator would run all day.



Just remember Ohm's Law. Current plays a big factor in loading of a generator while the operation voltage is at 120 AC Volts. Example: electric motor; Now electric motor when starting will pull three time its operation current. Operating current for a 1/2 HP AC motor is 6 amperes but start this electric motor will require 18 amperes. This is one reason why they starting capacitors on smaller electric motors. Larger three phase electric motor can literal stop a generator cold...in its tracks. It put such a large demand on the generator it stops the engine powering the generator. I have seen crankshaft break because the generator could handle the heavy current load.



Remember, any time you are running a small gas powered generator. All ways figure what the load and surge current load will be before hooking up any generator. Normally this is figured in VA (volt/amps). Wish you lock. GB...stewbison

Instuctions on how to start mcculloch generator 1800 w


I have one.. great little unit.. very reliable..
I am a wannabee diy guy.. so good luck
1 assuming sparkplug is good / in / /newish??
Fuel needs to be filled.. I suggest premium only (less residue if it sits for long.)
fill oil.. top up..
d/c electric plugs
then
togle ignition switch to on
turn fuel cap to on
turn fuel switch (sw) to on
move choke to start if engine is cold start.
pull starter cord ..
good luck
ps.. I have learned to run engine dry of fuel after use. turn off fuel (sw).. this empties carb.. You may have to pull starter cord a few times with next start to bring the fuel down..

Can't pull the starter rope on poulan pro leaf blower


those catches are what rotate the crank when you pull the cord, the spring's are to bring them back to their original position. while you have it apart gently tug on the pullcord to see if they try to move, if so then your problem lies deeper in the engine.

Unable to pull starter cord at all


pour some gas/oil mixture down sparkplug hole and let it soak and see if the rings are carbon blocked

Generator hard to start. Kick back


This sounds like the timing is off. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord to see if there is less tension. If there is less tension then you know that the pull cord is fine. Do a compression check on the cylinder, it should be around 100psi. Remove the valve cover and check to see if valves are moving when your pulling the cord. The valves could have came off the rockers.
