Engine is racing

I took of the carb to clean and when I put it back on the engine started racing like crazy. could the linkage be hooked up wrong? never did this before. seems like it's acting the opposite of what it should be doing and moving the auto wide open.

Yeah I think you put it back the wrong way. But its not a big problem.

I believe that the reason why it is on "High Rev" is because your drum /valve is not sitting in properly and is pulling the throttle cable.

Just dismantle it slowly and have a look inside. Your throttle cable shouldn't be stressed when putting it back.

Good work.

I have a ladies Fossil watch #AM4168. The battery went bad on it and when I changed it out with a brand new battery and the second hand won't move. I took the battery out thinking I was sold a bad battery...


It is a common logic problem. The watch stopped working. You assumed it was the battery; hence your assumption was wrong. Therefore the obvious answer is that the watch broke and that a battery would not help unbreak it.

How it works invicta clock mechanism ?


Your watch is battery powered or a 'quartz' watch. It is commonly refered to as a 'chronograph'. That is another word for stop watch.As well as telling time and the date, your watch can time how long an event lasts. For example, a horse race. You start the chronograph or stop watch when the horse starts and stop it when it crosses the finish line. When the next horse starts you need set it back to zero to time the next race.Operation is simple. The upper push button starts and stops the chronograph. Try it. Now with the chronograph stopped, push the bottom button. The hand return to the 12 o'clock position or the 'zero' position. Also notice the small dials on the dial or face of the watch. They record minutes and other increments of time. The large hand going around when you push the upper button is recording seconds. Hope this helps, Michael

I changed the battery in my timex expedition watch, and now the alarm doesn't sound. The watch is set for Beep ON, but it never beeps.


Same thing happened to me, took watch to watch shop, they changed the battery and the chimes stopped working. Simple fix, the faceplate was put back on wrong. Unscrew the face plate and turn it upside down (or right side up depending on your POV) the circle on the inside of the faceplate will line up with the springs inside the watch and the chimes will start working again. If you have a pair of eyeglasses screw drivers, like I did, you can do this yourself.

I have a moto gp and popped the back to change the battery. no matter how hard i try the cover will not snap back on. am i doing something wrong?


Putting the back on a watch seems to be a frequent problem, possibly why most makers recommend that you let a jeweller replace a battery.

I suggest you try the following method:

1) Place you watch on a flat surface (on top of a cloth to protect the crystal)

2)place the back in position (check alignment of any seal)

3)place the thumbs of each hand together at one point on the rim and then (leaning firmly on both thumbs) work you way round the rim until the back clicks into position.

If there is a notch on the back which is made to make is easier to remove it, then I suggest that you start on the opposite side to this.

You may need several attempts to to get it right but keep trying.

If all else fails, a trip to your local watch shop should solve your problem.

Good luck!

HOW TO SET NEW PIRELLI YACHT TIMER WATCH? MANUAL NOT SENT WITH WATCH. IS THERE A FREE MANUL POSTED ON INTERNET? MODEL 41008, S# 7951903215 Many thanks for the help.


This information comes from the movement manufacture and helps figure out what does what. I also have a yacht timer with no instructions.....hope this helps

A combination of design and technology, ISA 8270 is a precise racing timer developed especially for yachting races, displaying count-down during regatta departures with audible signals, followed by cumulated time during races. The dimensions (25.60mm, H 4.60mm) offer a large variety of opportunities for watch designs. It is suitable for the manufacture of models for gents and ladies watches.

This new calibre is an analogue quartz timer fitted with an alarm function. It displays the hours, minutes, seconds (small jumping seconds at 2 o’clock counter), and date shown by a date window at 6 o’clock. In addition, it allows count-down and race timing. The small hand at 10 o’clock counter and the central hand facilitate the display of count-down and time measurement clearly visible.

Count-down, Racing Timer and Alarm features

ISA 8270 yachting movement not only provides the traditional count-down at 10, 6 and 5 minutes, but also the versatility of setting count-downs at any minute from 10 to 1 minute.

One special feature is that it allows the possibility of recalibrating the count-down at every minute up to the last minute before departure. This latter function allows the navigators to readjust the watch at any time during the count-down to the closest full minute in order to be in line with the official procedure announced by the racing committee (RC) boat so as to get off the best possible start. Audible signals are emitted every minute to alert the progress of count-down. To give higher accuracy, every-second audible signals are emitted during the last 10 seconds count-down to ensure knife-sharp precision. Immediately after the departure, the count-down automatically shifts to the racing timer mode to measure the time of the race event for a maximum of 96 hours. Setting, start/stop and recalibration of count-down and race timing are facilitated by the pushers (at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock), which are easier to operate.

Thanks to an oversized counter hand and a highly visible flange on the dial that our customers may design, the navigators can best monitor the time remaining before departure and during the entire procedure.

The alarm time is displayed in an analogue mode. Alarm start/stop is enabled by a pusher at 8 o’clock and is displayed by a central alarm hand (12 hours).

Superb performance

Born of precision, accuracy and innovation, ISA 8270 offers excellent quality and performance. Intended for yachting races, this movement gives answer to sports watches requiring indispensable qualities: strength, endurance, agility and outstanding speed.
When the trend of sportive and fashionable quartz watches prevails, this new Swiss Made ISA 8270 priced competitively with outstanding performance answers the expectations of an increasing market demand and customers, who wish to add a number of value-added exceptional designs to their next collections with strong sporting character.

Carbuetor promlems


Before removing carb a suggestion to check first,make sure distributor is supplying power to spark plugs and do inspect inside cap for moisture if there is no "fire"then that needs to be repared,"several things can cause this or if moisture is found clean distributor interior thouroghly and replace cap or it will happen again.if this is not answer try removing air filter for as long as possible along with plugs and let excess fuel evaporate before cranking anymore and add good fuel cleaner to fresh fuel and try again,old fuel can have condensation and not ignite.If you still find no change the problem may very well be carb and depending on how hard finding gaskets or replacement parts for it someone with experience may be needed for repair because carbs are difficult to do right without some knowledge.

Polar F6 - Battery replaced, display corrupt after watch loads.


I had the same problem and attempted what banjodoug suggested above. It did not help. I had a faint display even before I re-inserted it into my watch frame. I surmised it wasn't the battery position.

I then took apart the damn thing and put it back together several times, each time rushing to push the setting/center button only to derive the same problem over and over.

I then took it apart one more time and pinched in all of the sides of the metal frame that holds it all together, thinking that I had a bad ground. After I did that, I reassembed it and waited. The display came on with the test display and then eventually went to the standard display on its own and all was good to go.

I suspect the issue was solved by correcting an improper ground and a proper initialization process - both solved by the steps I took above.

Hope it works for you!
