Question about K-Line Toys

Open Question

Hello, I bought a K-Line 4-6-6T Boston and Albany Tank Engine. I've had the train for 2 years. Recently I noticed there was no smoke coming out of the small hole. I went through the train and I saw that the train was making smoke, but I ran the train with the top off and saw that the fan that blows the smoke off no longer works. I was wondering where I could find the small motor that drives the smoke unit fan. Also I was wondering where I could find a set of maintenance tools.

If all cars are not properly on the track, the engine does not have enough power to pull the cars. Try with engine and coal car only to zero in on cause.

The wires will have pulled off the circuit board inside.

Remove screws (force a hex driver in there) and solder wire back on.

Train surgey (geddit) is very fiddly. Have a drink first! ;-)

I have a John Wood one pipe power vented hot water heater. The model number is Jw840nvh-fv-04. Recently I've been smelling products of combustion coming out the top of the tank where the vent is.

If this heater is located in a "confined space", has the "make up air" entry point(s) been restricted/blocked? In short, is there enough air present to support combustion AND to supply enough air for the power vent to move the gases at a reasonable rate to the environment?

Can you "feel" the gases coming out the vent at a reasonable thrust? Is the power vent blower motor making any noises (not rotating properly, i.e., bad bearings)? Does the vent have any debris at the end, possibly at a screen?

Is the T&P valve dripping water? Is there ANY water on the floor? Is there a thermal blanket on the heater? Is the blanket wet anywhere? Did you recently add a thermal blanket? (Some manufacturers DO NOT recommend a blanket.) Have any liquids been spilled on top of the tank? Is anything dripping on the tank?

Is the burner flame crisp, not "lazy"?

"Recently I've been smelling products of combustion coming out the top of the tank where the vent is". There is a negative pressure present at the top of the tank where the vent is - in a properly drafting vent pipe assembly. This means that vapors, odors, and moisture ARE BEING SUCKED OUT of that area under and through the hood and then into the piping. "and when blew some smoke at the vent, it drafted up through the vent no problem". Try to identify the real source of the odor.

Lastly, I think this model uses a direct connection technique from the blower/power vent termination to the piping without a hood. So if you blew smoke at the vent, and there is no hood, how would the smoke get into the vent? If the 2" vent is PVC or CPVC, and if the gases are being slowed because of any reasons mentioned, maybe the plastic piping is slowly cooking.

Hi Angie,
I don't want to be too harsh, but you need to stop randomly replacing parts and stop putting chemicals in your fuel tank.
I have been in the auto repair business for over 36 years and that garbage that they sell at the parts stores have never fixed a drivability problem that I have ever seen. Those things are only stuff that "snake-oil salesmen" use to part desperate people from their hard-earned cash. There is no such thing as "mechanic in a can".

A seasoned, well trained, automotive repair technician with a few years of experience, can scan your engine computer, look at the data when the engine is running poorly, and give you a pretty good idea of what is causing your problem....This is what is called DIAGNOSTICS. You can spend a fortune and loose a lot of hair over trying to "guess" what the problem is.

Please also review the following articles. You may find them somewhat "enlightening".

You have coolant burning. Your 2.7T is a hot-running engine and the plastic tank sits above the left side exhaust manifold. The heat from the manifold is known to cook the tank and make it brittle enough to crack and leak. I think if you look at the tank you'll see it's leaking slightly on the manifold, causing the coolant smoke you're seeing. You can get a new tank from in Albany NY - great place to deal with (I always order parts for jobs from them) and replacement is simple.

I have recently noticed fuel right above the sparkplug on the second cylinder on my 04 Road King. Looking for possible cause, problems and or diagnosis. Not sure where to begin.Thanks.

Fuel around the spark plug? I've never seen this before. Usually, if fuel is on the engine, it evaporates very quickly even if the engine is cold. If you notice the fuel there before you start the engine, it's probably leaking from the fuel tank or a hose above the rear cylinder head. It may be leaking somewhere up front and running down the bottom of the tank and dropping off in that area. I can say that it is probably not coming from the engine. Check for a leak in the fuel tank somewhere.

Good Luck

Hello: Need to know the year/model and size engine. Starting some time around 2005 Gm offered a powertrain warranty of 5 years 100,000 miles. If there is oil on the outside of the sparkplugs then that would NOT indicate an internal engine problem. Your best bet would be to take the car to a GM dealer, Chev. find out where you stand

Black smoke points to unburnt fuel. I would start by replacing the spark plugs and wires if you have not done so in the last couple of years.
