If a rebuild was done to new specs and there were no short cuts or reused old bits because they looked good and were in side limits I would expect around 75% of the new time up to when the rebuild was necessary i9f not more. A rebuild if done properly should last as long as the original motor but unfortunately the cost causes most people to take shot cuts and use after market parts so the useful life will be less

1993 waverunner bogging down on take off. New rebuilt carb, will low oil level cause this? Is there a low level switch /?


Only of you have ran the engine out of oil...Sounds like the carbs may not be set correctly.. .Did a professional do the rebuild?..What exactly was "rebuilt".. were any parts replaced?
Sounds like the low speed (pilot jets/air screw passages may not be clean as they need to be??)
Please check the compression on each cylinder..remove the spark plugs... hold the throttle (carbs) wide open when you check this.. spin the motor for 5-8 seconds... you should get 120psi. minimum..(and less than 10psi difference).. if less, it might be time to actually rebuild the top end..(new pistons/rings/hone cyl.).. only bore it if absolutely necessary.. get it measured..

There are only 3 parts in a two-cycle carb that ever need to be replaced,,(unless they are actually broken) The needle and seat assy., the jet needle and the needle jet. ..see pic... parts # 41 = needle and seat assy. #6 = jet needle, #37 = needle jet.

tm_flatslide_expl-bzhe2oey0b0e11an1gziaszn-4-0.gif

The needle and seat regulate the flow of gas into the carb as the floats rise and fall..,, if they are damaged or leaking the carb will overflow with gas., the needle jet is a orifice with a specific size..The jet needle has a specific size, taper, and length..== The jet needle and needle jet work in unison to regulate the flow of gas from right off idle all the way to WFO..the needle jet/jet needle WILL wear over time causing the fuel/air mixture to become richer and richer and start fouling spark plugs..(this is more pronounced on 4-cycle ATV's)...
I hope this has shed some light on your carb situation...
Good luck...

Will an electric motor with more horsepower and more rpm hurt a compressor pump?


Electric motors seem to turn around 1125 rpm or 3600 rpm. The pulley size on the motor and pump must be adjusted to achieve the desired result without overheating /loading the motor. I have seen pumps turning from 800 to 1200 rpm using different pulley size on motor, motor hp and motor rpm. Some brands will turn same pump from 1200 to 3600 rpm depending on if was electric or gas motor. This will certainly shorten the life of the pump but will most likely work. Most turn an average of 1200 rpm for good balance of long life and good supply of air. Pump rpm is usually limited to the power of the motor. Cost effective match of 1.5 hp motor will turn pump about 1000 - 1200 rpm for about 5cfm. Rol Air 2hp motor turns 2 cyl pump about 1100 rpm for 10 cfm. Good luck

I want to find out the life expectancy of the bulb (lamp) that comes with the Optoma projector model VDDVGG


We tracked it when we first bought ours. The lamps go anywhere from 800 to 1200 hours. First, I don't think the manufacturing process is very consistent so they very a lot. Also, it seems the more you turn them on/off the shorter the life. If you use for longer periods, then they last more hours.

You might be able to get 2000 hours out of one if you just leave it on without turning it off but that is a waste too.

2002 yamaha 1200 vmax 4 bbl carb fouling plugs


Hi, Jamie12r and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirty air filter.
2. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner/choke left out too long.
3. Faulty spark plug.
4. Incorrect spark plug heat range for the engine type or service.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off the valve guide and are pumping oil through it.
7. Spark plug cable weak or leaking check for spark jump in the dark.
8. Faulty ignition coil.
9. Low RPM nonaggressive riding style.
