Question about Garden

Open Question

I have a H 350 Howard Garden Rotavator. The blocks (like bicycle brake blocks) are missing from between the clutch plates allowing steel upon steel. I need to replace these and I need to replace the two cables from the handles of the machine. The machine was purchased in the mid 1970s. Where can I purchase these parts today? Is it possible to get a manual for this machine? Is there one available online? Eugene

Not sure you will find an owners manual but I highly recommend the book Zinn and the art of bicycle repair. Zinn is the author. He covers every fix imaginable for new and older/vintage bikes. He probably has several versions of the book out.

What does master cylinder do for a car

Depends upon which master cylinder you are referring to. All cars have a master cylinder in the brake system. This device contains a reservoir for brake fluid and is activated when you press the brake pedal to provide the hydraulic pressure that runs through the brake lines to the wheels to provide stopping power. If the car has a manual transmission, it may also have a master and slave cylinder in the clutch system. Works similarly to the brake system but the hydraulic pressure here is used to disengage the clutch disc from the pressure plate to allow for shifting.

Driving 95 camry manual then clutch went super tight stiff could not change gears i suspect clutch broken?

The clutch is operated by a steel cable moving in a sheath when the clutch pedal is depressed and released. This operation is very similar to the hand brake of a bicycle.

If dirt enters the cable and becomes lodged between the sheath and cable, it will require more pressure to be applied on the clutch pedal to operate the clutch. The same thing can happen if water enters - it can cause rust to form on the cable and sheath with the same results. Because is requires more pressure to operate, the small individual steel strands the make up the cable may break - and the broken ends become jammed in the inside of the sheath. Because your leg muscles are some of the most powerful in the body, you can generally easily overcome the additional resistance offered by the rust / dirt. Only when the damage is done do you realize there's a problem.

It sounds like the clutch is not being allowed fully released - so it is slipping while driving. This is likely to be the source of the burning smell you are noticing. If you continue to drive the car without being fixed, you will need to have internal clutch parts replaced sooner that the normal replacement interval (the clutch is a normally replaced item similar to brakes).

The fix is replacing the cable itself (if it is a cable related problem). Your local mechanic can do this job fairly inexpensively. If it is the results of clutch parts in the transmission that have failed (pressure plate, throw out bearing, etc.) the repair costs can rise quickly.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I have just aquired a Howard 400 rotavator which has a Champion J8 spark plug fitted, is this the correct plug and if so where can I get som.

Which engine have you got?... There were several fitted, though I expect it's a *** 4/3. If it is then it should be fitted with a Champion L10, The NGK B6HS or Champion L86C which are modern equivalents should also work and are easy to find if you don't value "originality"

Hope this will help .
