Have you set the dizzy correctly as the engine will run badly if you have set to incorrect TDC of the crank.

89 inch pounds then 30 degrees. make sure the push rods get put back in same place they came out they are different lengths. If you ever do another one of these buy the tool for the rocker arms and you will not have to remove them or the rear valve cover. please rate

SOURCE: My 2000 Olds Silhouette leaks coolant.

First is to check to see if it's your intake gasket, pull the dip stick and look at the condition of the oil. Look for excessive sludge and milking, look under the oil cap and look in to the valve cover, also pull the PVC valve and look at the condition. Check to see if there is sludge and milking, if there is then you have antifreeze leaking in to you engine crank case which is very bad. The antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearing and will soon cost you a new engine if there is no indication of antifreeze in your crank case, then it's a leak somewhere else through out your cooling system. If you see the leak from the out side then that's good, it may just be a bad hose clamp that needs to be tightened. If your not sure and want to buy some time, add about 3 table spoon of common kitchen Black Pepper. The black pepper will work it's way throughout the cooling system and will plug up the leak for now and the great thing about pepper is that it will not leave any residue when you flush out the system, not like the radiator stop leaks out in the market. Good luck and keep me posted, it could be the heater hose to the heater core.

Testimonial: "No, I did not notice any antifreeze in the oil. I was aware of this possibility due to past experience on a different vehicle many years ago."

Hi i just bought a "the cannon" watch from west 49 and i don't know how to get the watch to actually start. i set the time on it but it won't start ticking. i'm wondering if it's...


Hi alec,

I see that you cannon watch is not ticking even after you have set the time.

Well after you set the time you push the knob back in once the time is set right then the watch should start ticking that instant.

If the watch is not ticking at all then it is either a damaged watch or the watch sold to you may not have batteries on it.

can you give me a model and info regarding the watch maybe we can get information or a manual about the watch for further checking before considering it to be broken.

Also if you can try calling or going back to where you purchased the watch maybe they give you details on why it will not click since you just bought it I believe they will assist you if it may need replacing.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nice day,

I have a zodiac 1882 what type of battery does it need?


It's a 395 (SR 927 SW), however you're going to need a case wrench and a 4-pin vise to get the back off so you're looking at a minimum of $40 for the battery and the tools and that's if you know where to look. The other problem is the rubber gasket which may need to be replaced as well. Unless you happen to have a supply of them handy for that exact size case, your watch will no longer be water resistant to the manufacturers specifications. You could probably wash your hands with it but I wouldn't recommend anything more intense. The problem that you have is that you won't know if you need a new gasket until you get the case open and as noted, that's cost you a minimum of $40 to find out and you get the pleasure of having a set of tools that you'll probably never use again. Or, you could save yourself the money, headache and aggravation and of course the high probability of you damaging it because you lack the experience to change the battery on a screw-back, water resistant timepiece and just take it to a local jeweler, pay $10 - $15 to professionals who know what they are doing and will include the replacing of the gasket at no extra charge.

I just recieved my Movado 800 series watch today and the large chronograph timer hand won't reset to zero (top of dial @ 12 o'clock) when I press the zero button. It resets to 56 minute position....


you do not need to return, as this is re-settable. Pull out crown to the first position (date setting) and then toggle with upper push button. If upper button do not do the job, try the bottom one. When you reach 12, then push the crown back in. Start the chrono, stop it and check if it returns to 12.

Works fine when under the light but stops when I wear it.


Your capacitor will needs to be replaced. This usually has to be done about every 5-8 years.

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.

Changing battery


Hi cobbie,

It is a good idea to get a watch repair guy to change it for you. They have the tools and experience to do a good job and they seldom charge more than $15-20 to do it for you. The watch casing generally needs to be cleaned, and often the gasket replaced to maintain water tightness.

If you live in the US, you can get a mail order service done here on the watch for $19 that also includes watertight testing, and the job done by experts that do them everyday. If you are outside the US, get back to me and I will find someone close to you.
