    No Sir,

    The problem seems to lie with one (slight possibility two) of the springs has been stretched.
    I think this may have occured when I removed the rocker cover the first time for inspection (I dropped somethong down the oil filler hole).

    I can lower the revs by getting my hand behind the exhaust and moving the lever back and forth.

    Thank you anyway.

    Best Regards.

Double check that you have governor spring on, and in correct adjustment.

    having a hard time finding you a picture but you may also have carburetor that has linkage (small rod) to governor as well. Perhaps a stop at a local small engine shop will allow you to see it and compare yours, or even a phone or digital camera picture .

    Thanks.

    I think I strained one of the springs when I removed the rocker gasket for inspection when I dropped something down the oil filler hole, (took the spring off when I replaced the gasket).

    I seem to think the spring is strained but can holld the revs using a clothes peg.

    Many thanks.

Were the hoses are connected to there are two valves inside that control head. One valve comes out and then another under the one just removed. Take these out and clean plus lubricate them both with Vaseline. Then reassemble. The second valve will be a joy to remove. They always stick inside fairly well. That just shows up the lubrication is gone

Idles erratically, just changed rocker cover? gasket .now it revs high, not sure why, can I fix this suzuki swift 1990


rocker cover, i edited it for you. (my guess high is over 800rpm)?
hot engine or cold engine or both?
if hot is water temp, 180F? or stuck at 149F"? too low...
are you in neutral or drive? or park.?
which engine?. is it there are many sizes used on Swifts,
one if the largest number of engines on car.
my guess is a "G" engine family.
High idle is usually a vacuum leak,
is this a CARB or EFI engine?, (TBI, throttle body injection:?)
if it is EFI and if TBI
any air leaks will cause too fast hot idle.
here is the list: EFI only ! electronic fuel injected.
  1. Vacuum leaks. (hose left off, or now cracked?)
  2. sticking ISC, idle controller.
  3. TPS set wrong, and no longer has a working idle switch.
  4. ECU in Limphome (if CEL lamp (dash) glows running , bingo)
  5. PVC hose fell off.. sucking in fresh air , and higher idle.
more if you have answers to what your engine and driveline
consist of.




here is the lineup
GEN2 Swifts (the G family used)
1.0 L G10 (LP2) I3
1.0 L G10T (LS3) turbo I3
1.3 L G13A/BA (L72) 8V I4
1.3 L G13B/G13K 16V DOHC I4
1.5 L G15A 16V I4
1.6 L G16 16V I4

How do i fix an oil leak?


some plugs go down inside the rocker cover . when replacing plugs in this situation it is necessary to replace the "O" ring seals as well as the plugs as the oil from the rocker cover will leak out and get around the plugs.

Revs really high


The gx160 has flag control on air intake to carb.
The flag is spring loaded to return to idil .
the spring has came off/ the cable has bunched preventing free movement.
long nose vice grips and gently reline.

Rev problem


There can be several reasons for this. A stuck throttle flap in the intake manifold, or an opening in a gasket.
Some of the engines have a part called a manifold runner. This part is like a 2 position shutter. When it sticks, the high speed chamber can be open at low speeds in error. This causes the engine to run faster. The part may need to be removed to clean or an attaching/operating assembly may be stuck.

I have oil leakin on top of my spark plug wires in the tube ive changed the valve cover gasket 3 times i even put high heat cilcone over around the spark plug tubes but all it does is slow it down im not...


Two things:

1. Make sure you torque the bolts down to the right specification, which is 83 inch pounds (or about 7 ft lbs). Work opposite end of the cover and start with a lower torque first (like 50 in lbs), then go up to 83. It's just a good practice.

2. If that does not work, get a Fel Pro gasket set VS50365R (pic below). What is special about this set is the really thin o-rings there in the middle. Those are the rocker arm tube seals. You need to take the rocker arms off in order to replace them, but this way you're doing a complete job and you probably won't have that issue again. If you don't want to get the whole set again (since you already replaced most of it 3x over), you can probably just go to a honda dealership and pick up the 4 you need.

Here are the seals under the rocker arms:

If you decide to do this yourself, it's a good idea to get a set of feeler gauges so you can properly gap the clearance from the rocker arms to the valves. Intake valves should be gaped to .010 in, and exhaust valves to .012 inches. Also, yes, you can take the rocker arm assembly off without removing the distributor...just take off that one bolt that is in the way. The torque for the bolts holding in the rocker assembly is 9 ft-lbs for the smaller 6x1mm bolts and 16 ft-lbs for the larger 8x1.25mm bolts. Here is the torque sequence...

New crf250r breaks down at high revs since new


Thats not normal. You could get a bike off the show room floor and completely skip the break in period and it would run wide open. If your bike wouldn't rev past quarter throttle there is something wrong. With a blackened silencer and a motor that dies at quarter throttle I'd say you've got a problem with your injection system flooding your motor with fuel. I run 3 warm up and cool down rotations and go ride like normal. After 4 tanks of fuel your bike is more than broken in. If you aren't familiar with the injection system take it to the dealer and get someone to look at it. If you bought it new it should be covered as a manufacture defect.

How to change out valve cover gaskets on a 1989 Lincoln Town Car


This is All you need for this Repair, ALSO Be Sure ALL GASKET SURFACES ARE VERY CLEAN. This Engine Requires MORE than MOST ALL Engines do for this Repair.

REMOVAL

  1. To remove a valve rocker arm cover from the RH cylinder head, disconnect PCV closure tube from oil fill stand pipe at rocker cover.
  2. Remove the Thermactor bypass valve and air supply hoses as necessary to provide clearance.
  3. Disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs using Spark Plug Wire Remover T74P-6666-A or equivalent. Do not pull on wire. Remove the wires and bracket assembly from the rocker arm cover attaching stud and position the wires out of the way. ALSO MARK THEM AS TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM !!!
  4. Remove upper intake manifold.
  5. Remove attaching bolts and remove the cover.
INSTALLATION

  1. Clean the valve rocker arm cover(s) and the cylinder head gasket surface(s). Position a new service valve rocker cover gasket.
  2. Position the cover(s) on the cylinder head(s). The cover is tightened in two steps. Tighten the bolts to 14-18 N.m (10-13 lb-ft). Two minutes later, tighten the bolts to the same specification.
  3. Install the crankcase ventilation tube in the RH cover.
  4. Install upper intake manifold.
  5. Install the spark plug wires and bracket assembly on the rocker arm cover attaching stud. Connect the spark plug wires. Install the air intake duct assembly.
  6. Install the Thermactor bypass valve and air supply hoses (if required).
