SOURCE: Persistent drag

If you're connecting it using the USB connector, try switching to the PS2 one.  I had various wierd problems with the standard MS USB HID driver with this device.  The standard MS PS2 driver works reliably.

SOURCE: engine drags while trying to start

It may be a problem with the camshaft-compression release. Some of the Briggs & Stratton models had a weak spring on the compression release whis is parts of the camshaft. you may also want tocheck that all wires are clean and tight. Also if it's a over head valve model check the valve clearance.

SOURCE: remote control train won't work

The wires will have pulled off the circuit board inside.

Remove screws (force a hex driver in there) and solder wire back on.

Train surgey (geddit) is very fiddly. Have a drink first! ;-)

MOTORCYCLE will not go over 50 mph or it bogs


iIf it is not fuel system, not fuel / air balance might be ignition system or wear and tear in the engine itself. Assuming the brakes are set up correctly and not dragging. Is the ignition timing correct. Is the compression okay? Cylinder head condition. spark leads good? Sounds like a trained mechanic with some diagnostic equipment might help you track the problem down.
Good Luck with it

Lionel g gauge wont run on track


I think you have solved the problem. Check all the wheels to be sure that they all turn. The locomotive isn't powerful enough to drag a car with a stuck wheel.

Could be a failing starter or problems with the cables.
A dead cell in the battery will do it too.

Replaced the rear brake pads and 1 side is dragging. i adjusted them and cannot adjust any more and still drags and makes noise?


Pull the drum off and check that side again. Maybe a shoe is slightly off track (not positioned properly, or a spring in the wrong hole, something like that). Compare both sides to see that all is correct. Check your emergency brake for proper positioning, too.
Self-adjusting? You did reverse, brake, reverse, brake to set the self-adjusters, right?
Good luck.

Has trouble taking off.low exhaust pressure, low fuel mileage


Suspects will include air supply, compression, and exhaust.

After ruling out the obvious basics (fresh air filter, unobstructed air intake) pull the wire clip to the auto-choke and idle for a few seconds before dropping it in gear to check for a change in power.

*Have you pulled the rear wheels to check for a binding E-brake or broken springs in the drums?
What feels like a left-front drag could also be a rear dragging...

*Has it been smoking lately?

Locomotive won't come on


This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!
