Hi, I'm very familiar with the H1011 as I own one. I bought it used but the seller didn't tell me all the guide parts were missing. I found out (after going through the same problem) that you must route the belt WITH ALL THE GUIDES IN PLACE.!!! You will need to find an online picture of the routing and make SURE all your guides are in place and the route is correct. It took me multiple attempts to get it right because most of the pictures even in the service manual do not tell you which side of the stops you are to be on. You really need that service manual. As far as the tensioner goes, it is spring loaded and adjusted to keep the slack out of the belt. There is also a pivot roller at the end towards the engine that can slide over to take up more slack.Service manuals can be found on EBAY and Honda sellers. They are really necessary to do maintenace and repairs. If you don't have one, there will much frustration and busted knuckles from putzing with it. Ask me how I know that !!!!

You are missing something in your routing of the belt, common mistake is putting belt on wrong side of tension pulley or avoiding it altogether. When the belt(s) are mounted correctly there should not be much looseness in it, before you engage belt.

Accord starts shuts off

screeching would be the fan belt slipping, may need a new one also could be a weak retainer for the belt that keeps the tension. as for shutting off randomly do you get an engine light come on before this happens or does it just shut off. if you get the engine light come on before it could be the timing sensor/s if not it could be the relay for injectors. failing that it could be the dispack failing but that would leave a code on the ecu. air leaks can also cause the engine to shut off. or a faulty fuel regulator... you need to have the ecu read to find out if there is a sensor gone or dispack air leaks can cause ruff idling hard to start engine when cold, a fuel filter will do the same if it has is old. and give problem with speed.

The belt keeps coming off my flymo. but it don't look stretched. any other explanation for why this keeps happening

check the housing guard for the belt grass might be getting in and pinching between the belt and the pullies causing the belt to come off. You can use foil tape to patch any holes where grass mey be entering, duct tape might melt from the heat of the motor but you could use that as well.

I am having no luck finding a decent owners manual for my 82 Sabre

Both Clymer and Haynes printed comprehensive guides to the Honda Sabre. I have generally had better experience with the Clymer over Haynes manuals for motorcycles (though I flip the other way when it comes to automobile guides), but I have examples of both in shop manual collection. You can check out the Clymer guide at:

The Haynes guide can be seen at:

Used copies of these manuals can be found for dramatically less money on and eBay, if not even from other online booksellers. You shouldn't expect to pay full retail price for one of these.

You'll have a harder time finding the original owner's manual that came with your Sabre. A number of bike recyclers keep stocks of old manuals for sale, but many of these are lost or discarded by their owners long before a bike ever reaches a scrapyard. I don't get a lot of information out of the basic owner's manuals, so I don't consider their loss a big problem.

As a final thought, if you go to your Honda dealer, you can purchase the official Honda shop manual for this bike. It will be expensive, and it may only be available on microfiche at this point (some are now available on CD-ROM), but that will give you access to the same documentation that official Honda techs use at the dealerships.

How do I put a genuine factory parts deck drive belt O.E. 954-04062/754-04062 on 38"Bolen's lawn tractor model#13AM762F765

To start with, the easiest way is to remove the mowing deck from the tractor. It will really be tough if you don't or can't. You may need an owners manual to guide you through all the steps.
1. Remove the cutting deck from the tractor 2. Work the old belt off (if not broken) the mandrel pulleys and idler pulleys 3. Pull the belt away to reinstall a new one 1. Work the new belt around both the mandrel pulleys 2. Make sure the belt is in all the pulley grooves and inside all the belt guides 3. Now you have to reinstall the mowing deck. Here are some diagrams that should help you.

Hi I have a 02 Honda Odyssey. Since I had teh

well oil consumption is either worn piston rings or worn valve guides and or seals,,,did they reuse the cylinder head that had the bent valves and just put new valves in it?if so i bet the vavle guides are damaged and the valve seals and oil is leaking by causing it to burn oil and thats why you have a ticking and oil consumption, i would take it back and demand a new cylinder head,,,for free
