Same thing happens today with the bike Radio Flyer Trike 4 in 1. I just opened the red adjustable hub, and found one spring detached, and both springs that control the 2-pawl system of ratchet system very loose. I tensioned both springs but it worked for one day only. Called customer service, provided all the necessary information and they promised a new front wheel. In 3 business days a received, a brand new front wheel with pedals and fork. The pedals are fixed on wheel, and is the best solution from radio Flyer for a Kid who is grown with the bike from 18 months to 36 month, and now at age 3 rides the lovely Radio Flyer like a dare devil. Thank you Radio Flyer.
Having a strong mechanical background, I opened system, both sides of the wheel. To dissemble and repair, I had to remove one pedal on the side of the big white hub. What I found inside was a Ratchet wheel, with rounded teeth, and 2 Pawls totally worn out.
I fixed drilling 4 holes all the way through metallic plate, ratchet wheel, and the hub of the wheel. Inside the hub cavity, I used 4 washers and nuts to secure tight all 4, 3/32 stainless steel screws.
My grandson is very happy and more confident, because now he can move the bike forward, and backwards, and the most important, now he can use the pedals of the front wheel to stop the bike. Which it was a safety flaw by original design of this bike, but solved now by Radio Flyer. The new wheel Red Hub has 2 Positions.

Check the arrow on the rubber part of the front wheel. The arrow should point forward as you pedal. If it is pointing back, the tire is on backwards.

WhenI turn the inside nob the needle works but not when I turn the outer nob, it just turns and nothing happens WhenI use the peddle the outernob spins but again the needle doesnt work (nob=handwheel)


On most machines, when the inner wheel is turned counter clockwise, it engages the bobbin winder and disengages the needle movement.

To disengage the bobbin winder and sew, turn the inner wheel clockwise as far as it will go. This should engage the sewing capability and it should work either by hand rotating the large wheel (always counter clockwise!) or with the foot pedal. If it does not, then you most likely need to have your machine serviced.

Not a problem as much as an answer. Are both wheels rear wheels engaged at all times on my 4x4 87 ranger?


this is a rear wheel drive vehicle and as such the rear wheels are always engaged.when in 4 wheel drive the transfer case in gages and the front differential connects and is engaged.unless the 4 wheel drive is engaged the transfer case just free wheels.

4 wheel drive service light came on seems like front wheels are not engageing, i feel it shifting like its in gear but i dont have the traction what should i look for?


It's pretty basic actually. The encoder motor engages 4WD within the transfer case which drives the front differential. The drivers side wheel is always engaged at this point and the passengers side wheel is engaged via a vacuum controlled cable (actuator - lunder the battery). There are no "hubs" (so-to-speak), not in the way that you use to see on the older systems where you'd have to lock them.

05 f150 4wd will not always engage


There are issues with the 4x4 system I.w.e ends ingesting moisture/water into vacuum actuation system causing no 4x4 or ratcheting outboard I.w.e ends. (Even if you don't go 4x4'n ) pull off vacuum hoses @ I.w.e ends and check for moisture/water/rust also the I.w.e is not part of the wheel bearing itself It is the part on the axle side (inboard) of the spindle. (EVEN DEALERS CAT LISTED WRONG)Many shops just replace the wheel bearing side this may fix the symptom but not the true cause of damaged I.w.e. ! Check with a reputable dealer they should have info on this condition and repair procedure.


The integrated wheel end (IWE) system contains the following:

Vacuum reservoir
IWE solenoid
IWEs (spring loaded vacuum hubs)
Vacuum hoses
Check valve
The IWE system uses vacuum hubs that engage the front wheel hubs to the front half shafts or disengage the front wheel hubs from the front half shafts.

The IWE solenoid receives engine vacuum from the vacuum reservoir.

When the 4-wheel drive system is in 2WD mode, the 4x4 module (PCM)supplies a ground path to the IWE solenoid to apply vacuum to the integrated wheel ends (disengaging the front hubs from the front half-shafts). In 4WD mode, the 4x4 module (PCM) does not supply the ground path to the IWE solenoid, vacuum is not applied to the integrated wheel ends and an internal spring keeps the front hubs engaged to the front half-shafts.

Front brakes dragging


First of all you will need to raise the wheels off the ground. Check both sides to see if they are both holding. Here is a list of what can cause the hanging in order of probablility;

1) Caliper or Caliper hose. (If the caliper is not free it won't release the pressure from the pad. Always replace the hose with the caliper because the hose may look good, but can collapse internally holding the pressure.

2) Master cylinder. Not likely but possible.

3) ABS is engaging. This can be caused by a short, it is rare, but it does happen. The short is telling the system that the wheel needs to be applied.

Rear wheel won't turn when pedaling


hi there,

put your bicyles on upside down position,wheel should on top so you can work freelywork on ,then rotate the pedal to check what the problem it should be freely rotating,check break pads if it was engage even w/o pressing control.release brake cable wire to loosen.if not in the break,check the sprocket gear if connecting to the chain belt,check your sprocket release lock,if damage replace sprocket, check the bearing of the two wheel center shafting if worn out replace bearing,on front wheel there are two quick release nuts,loosen and pull out wheel and loosen all nuts and lock plate bearing,pull out shafting with the bearing,examine mostly bearing worn out also shafting in some occasion its worn out also,possible if you want replace one set center shafting and bearing ts not costly,on rear wheel with sprocket it different to disconnect,beacause there is sprocket,you should dismantle the locked plate and lock nuts of sprocket before the shafting assymble same procedure now on front wheel when after disconnecting sprocket on rear wheel.hope this will guide you and solved your problem have anice day.

Front axle stuck engaged


w9fro..In1995, and other model years, the actuator used to engage the transfer case into four wheel drive is oil filled with a heating element.
When you select four wheel drive the element heats up, the oil expands and engages the transfer case. Unfortunately if the actuator fails, the truck remains in four wheel drive. GM has an improved actuator so the problem does not repeat.
As always, check the basics, power, grounds and switch at floor select before replacing the actuator.
Also, if the truck is truly stuck in four wheel drive, you can tell by turning the truck in a tight circle. If the front end wants to "bunny hop" it is definitely engaged.
Best of luck, let me know.
Regards,

Kettler Air Navigator Tricycle


My husband and I just put this trike together and had a similar problem - the front wheel always turned the pedals and we couldn't figure out how to stop this. The manual for the trike is awful and very hard to understand. After spending a LOT of time analyzing the pictures and doing all sorts of weird things to the pedals, I found a posting on a website that said they'd had the same problem, but had removed and re-attached the front wheel and the problem was suddenly fixed. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we noticed that in one of the manual's pictures that the air valve for the front tire was facing the other direction - we'd actually put the tire on backwards. I took the tire off, put it back on facing the other way, and suddenly it all works as it's supposed to.

The thing is, you actually don't have to "do" anything to change from free to fixed and keep the pedals stable. If my daughter pushes the pedals around, they move around, and if she keeps her feet steady on them, the wheel continues to go around while the pedals stay put. It truly is automatic, which the diagram in the manual does a terrible job of conveying.

Hope this helps someone. We like this trike, but the directions are beastly!
