Rebuild engine - Manco Talon 4 wheeler

My son blow up the Manco Talon 4 wheeler yesterday. I am wanting to rebuild the engine as I don't have the funds available to replace it right now. He and I will now have a fall project to complete together. I have no idea where to start or what I need to get started. My husband thinks the son blow a hole in the piston as the engine made a loud bang sound and then lost all engine compression. Any assistance, guidence and encouragement is greatly appreciated.

    Will the service manual show me step by step or will I have to muddle thru on my own?

    This is an extremely difficult task for a first-time "overhauler". But it sounds like you're motivated. First step is to acquire a service manual -- chances of getting it right the first time are slim, but it'll be a good learning and bonding experience. Charlie

Either that or the piston rings, I would think. Do NOT try to crank it by hand, if it is the rings or crankshaft you will do a lot of damage.

if they refuse you do have grounds for a small claims court. as far as piston rings are concerned it is always wise to replace them all instead of just the bad one. in order to do this you have to take the head off any way so might as well just go ahead an replace the rings. drop in motors come from salvage yards, most of the time it's from vehicls that were either wrecked from accidents stolen and damaged beyond repair. in these vehicles the motors are sti9ll good. generally depending on what the motor is the cost can be 250- 1000 and labor is about 500-1000 this will save you quite a bit of money usually . the downside is you only get a 30 day guarenttee. rebuilt engines from the manufacture can be 1500- to 3000 have a 3 year 50000 mile warrenty but they are called long blocks just the block and heads. all your accessories like altenator,water pump, etc have to be put back on. the best way to do this is find some you can trust and have them go with you to find what you need to get the job done. i'm sure there is alot of deals out there that will save you money and good mechanics that can get your vehicle running the way it should without ripping you off. I'm in iowa and i run across this type of problem all the time. hope i have been helpful. good luck and keep me posted. please rate this solution.

SOURCE: kick start has no compression but runs fine once i get it going

Does it feel like yhe kick is even engaging and turning the crankshaft? Are you full stroking/kicking it over or short stroking it? when cold, are you using the choke. I suggest taking a compression test when it feels as if it hs no compression It could be undersized piston, rings, or a simple. good luck

It sounds like your new crank sensor is defective. It should be under warranty.

Can I rebuild my enging in a kasawaki Prairie 400 4X4 year 2000

With all due respect to your enthusiasm, if you have little engine or mechanical experience you do not want to try rebuilding an engine.

With transmission it can weigh 1000 pounds

If you have an acquaintance/friend who is experienced suggest you do a rebuild together. No disrespect intended, a rebuild can be a technically demanding task

Starter replacement

I passed this question up yesterday because people don't generally rebuild starters anymore. They exchange their starter for a rebuilt one at a parts store. I suppose you can still buy the brushes and the bushings to do it, but I haven't in 25+ years.

My son's weedeater Model# MX550 doesn"t have a manual and he needs one to be able to rebuild or clean the carburator, as he left gasoline in it over last winter.

This is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. The weedeater manual for this machine will not tell him how to clean and rebuild a carburetor.
2. There are good videos on youtube for clean and rebuild of two cycle carburetors.
3. Using the brand and model number you will be able to get a carburetor rebuild kit for less than ten dollars I think from a local small engine repair and repair parts shop.

I hope this is helpful for you.
