I have an 8hp compound fowler traction engine 1896, which had her original valve missing when restored. New ones were made and I am not sure wether the dimensions are right. When she is running she has got a slow point in her running motion. Like to know if we can get drawings of original valves

The machine you are requesting is over a hundred years old and the probability of getting a precise drawing of the exact valve which comes with it.
When dealing with valves if you are certain that the slow point in its running are as a result of the valves all you have to do is get the valve holes a bit widened. Once this is done it would stop the slow point in its running although you might have to do the widening a couple of times before getting the exact dimension but with machines this old the best way to sort problems are through trial and error.
Hope this helps?
Happy new year.

I am not sure what you mean by a slow point in her running motion. Do you mean that there is a power lag somewhere in the rpm range? Are you using a lead substitute in the fuel because due to the age of that engine, it needed lead for valve seat lubrication. Also Have you run a cylinder leak down test on it to see what the valves are holding?

The vtm4 light went on( I think by itself ) will not disengage the malfunction light is also on now air & heat works one day then dont work for a day or two how do I unlock the switch ?

Honda Guy had this to say;
When operating normally your VTM-4 light means the vehicle is in traction control mode. HOWEVER, if the light just came on when you were driving it is an indication that you have a problem with the engine that is causing the VTM system to think the vehicle is in traction control mode because of a loss of engine power or misfire.

Here's how that happens: on a Honda, the way the vehicle restores traction is by reducing engine power to the point where the wheels don't spin as fast and thereby restores traction to a slipping wheel (slipping wheels spin faster than the other wheels). Conversely, when there is a reduction in engine power that is abnormal, the VTM system "thinks" that the engine power is being reduced to restore traction and it triggers the light.

In almost all cases, the light is being triggered by an idle speed control valve malfunction or in some cases by an EGR valve malfunction. It may or may not turn on the check engine light. This problem was fairly common on Pilots in 2004 and 2005 but certainly isn't limited to just those years.

Take the car to a Honda dealer or to a mechanic and have them check for stored codes in your powertrain control module. I think you're going to find that there is a code for an idle speed control valve malfunction or an EGR valve malfunction. The idle speed control valve is warranted for 8 years or 80,000 miles; the EGR for 3 years or 50,000 miles. Your Pilot is probably still in warranty and if so the repairs would be made at no charge

hope that helps,d.cWw

I took spark plugs out of 2001 Ford Ranger 3.0L to place plug fowlers in. Spark plug will fit in fowlers, however; fowlers will not fit in engine. Placed plugs back in engine and now will not start.

Sounds like that car is the proverbial POS. Did you check for spark? - need a strong one with a car burning that much oil and the plugs getting fouled like that. Need to replace those rings!

How do i repair the vsa unit on a 2006 honda accord?

I found this online. replacing the EGR valve would be a good thing to check as a VSA repair would be really expensive, it doesn't make sense that these should go bad, and it does not seem like it is something you can do yourself.
'This is going to sound funny, but your problem is not with the VSA. Here's what the dealer is missing in their diagnosis.

the way the Vehicle Stability Assist system works is that when a loss of traction is sensed (when one wheel is spinning faster than the other) then the control for the VSA starts to cut out engine cylinders to reduce the power to the wheel until traction is restored. When the control unit enables the VSA the exclamation point icon comes on and it will stay on until the engine is turned off.

Now for the twist--when the engine has a misfire that causes the engine to lose power then the VSA system "thinks" power is being reduced to restore traction and it puts the exclamation point icon on. So in essence, the VSA is being fooled into thinking that the system is enabled when in reality the problem is one of a reduction of engine power.

I have seen this numerous times on the Accords and Pilots. Almost always the problem is with the EGR valve. That doesn't mean that it is in your case, but my experience is that it usually is. Couple that with the history of EGR valve problems on the Honda V-6 and the the odds are strong that's what your problem is. However, anything that could cause a loss of power or misfire in an engine, such as an ignition coil breaking down or bad fuel could cause this problem.

In most States the things that can cause this problem are covered under a 3 year 50000 mile emissions warranty. I'd ask the dealer to do the diagnosis for an engine misfire and see where that goes.'

I have an Airens 8hp snowblower that when it is in gear it won't move forward. It takes alot of force to move it but the augers move and the snow flies out of the chute good. What can I look at fixing?

I believe that model has to belts. one for the auger drive and one for the traction drive. I would check the traction drive belt. The is also a rubber drive donut that rides on a melat disc to drive the wheels. Make sure the rubber drive donut is not glazed and cracked, and one other simple thing to check. On the end of each axle is a pin or some kind of locking device that lock the wheel from spinning on the axle. Make sure these are engaged. Goodluck on it.

Without dismantling the engine describe fully two test procedures that could be used to confirm a misfire due to poor valve seat. its any car but it wouldnt allow me to send you the question without...

First I would check the compression of the engine if you haven't already. If it turns out that you need valve job only on one valve I would take the head off and go buy some valve grinding compound, a new valve, valve seals and a spring compressor. Next put the head on a 5 gallon bucket so it will catch the valve if it falls. Make sure the valve doesn't move around in the valve guide otherwise you will have to take it to a machine shop to have new guides pressed in. If the guide is fine then take a cordless drill and spin the chuck onto the valve then put a good amount of compound on it and then seat the valve while spinning it. This will grind into the existing seat and make it new. Keep checking it and you will notice the surfaces of the valve and the seat becoming flush. At this point I would put all new valve stem seals on while you have it apart. Once all the imperfections are ground out and the valve is seated clean all parts and reassemble. Don't spend hundreds on a valve job that you don't need.

Our printer won't feed the paper through.

The pickup rollers can become glazed or clogged with paper fibers reducing the traction they can apply to the paper.
I am not personally familiar with your printer so I don't know how accessible they are but they need to be cleaned or resurfaced with a compound that bonds to the surface of the rollers and restores their grip.
There is a discussion of this rejuvenator here:
