General preventive maintenance Here is what you should do at the end of the mowing season: If you do nothing else in this list, at least change the oil. Old dirty oil will shorten the life of your engine and affect its starting and running performance eventually. Drain the fuel tank see the section: Gasoline for tips on doing this. Put this and any fresh unmixed gas remaining in your gas supply can into your car’s fuel tank preferably at least half full to dilute it so you won’t be tempted to use it next season. Or, discard it in an environmentally friendly manner. Then run the mower until it stops from lack of gas which will use up the gas still remaining in the carburetor at most a couple of minutes. Purging the engine of old gasoline is particularly important for float type carburetors. Otherwise, evaporation and oxidation may result in the formation of insoluble gum which will eventually clog up your carburetor.
That spaghetti-like mess of wires can really be overwhelming. First, choose an aftermarket harness to install. Quite a few are out there, and they all work well. My personal favorite is one from EZ Wiring.

I can tell you honestly that this was not so fervently discussed on the radio in earlier decades. My suspicion for this is that there was a better understanding in earlier times, before the advent of our rapid increase in new operators, of the conditions under which a “grounding system” would do some good. Lets look at this carefully and critically so that we can assess the desirability of a grounding system for our radio stations.
Radio Frequency RF Grounds First of all realize that there are two discreet types of ground systems and reasons why a Ham might desire to provide a “station ground”. These are for the most part mutually exclusive! In other words one does one job for which it is specifically designed, and one does a different job. You must design your grounding system with this in mind, or one function may inhibit or nullify the other!
One of these grounding systems is what I will generally describe as a “safety ground”. This safety ground is installed to reduce the risk of electrocution or radio equipment damage by short circuited “power mains”, or from lightening strikes to the antenna or “feedline” system. A safety grounding system is certainly a good Ham Radio “engineering practice”, although it is usually considered as of secondary importance to an “RF ground”!
In portions of our country where dramatic lightening storms are common this preference is probably reversed. I can tell you that even in the portion of Southern California that I live in, lightening strikes from annual spring storms, or even the thought of accidental “short circuit” electrocution are enough of a concern that I have a safety ground system for my station.
Jet location on carburetor 18 Jay Smith on the subject of correctly jetting a motor The plugs should be a “paper bag” color to be the ultimate in correct jetting. I don’t read plugs as there are too many varibles involved, I have had good luck only reading the piston itself. I make a high speed pass and if the hull will allow it without back washing over the splash well kill it clean.
Then I roll 5 piston as generally 5 is the hot hole on a Mercury and prone to burn if the mixture is too lean to bottom dead center and look at the piston crown on the intake side that will be the side toward the outside of the block with a bend o lite , the intake side of the piston at the intake port should be wet and look moist about the size of a quarter out toward the middle from the port. If the wettness is over across half of the crown your too rich and can lean down a bit.
If it is dry and ashy in color your too lean and you need to richen up in a hurry.

Remove the distributor cap, right valve cover and the 4 cyl rocker arms and pedestal. Set up a dial gauge on the 4 intake push rod. Rotate the engine to TDC 1 cylinder. If the dial reads thousands, your valve timing is right. If the dial reads thousands, your valve timing is retarded or your chain is streched. If the dial reads thousands, your valve timing is to far advanced.
These s are for stock engines and wouldn’t work for engines with aftermarket cams. By inducing high voltage in the tube, the gas is ionized and thereby lights up.
Denatured Alcohol Respirator Powder Coating Gun The powder coating gun serves the purpose of spraying powder and adding an electric charge to the powder so it is attracted to the metal part. Cheaper guns have a pre-selected KV and more expensive guns allow you to choose. If you already have a powder coating gun, read this article make sure you are using the correct spraying techniques. Craftsman Powder Coating System: No Air Compressor needed I will start with the cheapest possible gun to get you coating.
It is the Craftsman Powder Coating System.
Oct 01, · I thought I should buy the proper wire /grounding rod so I can ground the generator before I need to run it because of a power outage. I started doing some research to determine the correct wire and rod I should use.
Here are a few things that are important to help prevent this: The rolled edge of the panel that meets the frame should be in an even plane all the way around. In other words, if you lay it on the floor it should sit perfectly flat. If it’s at all “tacoed” then you need to straighten it out. Lambretta side panels can start to fit loosely if they get flattened out. This can make the front lower edge of the panel not sit in the groove. Gently put a little more bend in the panel down near the bottom edge where it curves in to meet the frame, and it should fit more snugly.
Don’t bend it too far or it will kink. Your scoot’s frame may be pushed in at the rear. If so, try pulling it out with a come-along or by putting it on a workbench and wedging a long 2″x4″ between the frame and rear tire and giving it a good yank.
Narrative Description of Amplifier Circuit Function This amplifier provides watts power output for the Six-meter band. It uses the low cost GS35B Russian power triode in a grounded grid or cathode driven configuration and requires about Watts of drive power. The Russian tube is currently available from USA and international sources1 at attractive prices, especially when compared to the cost of traditional American tubes of this power rating.
The center tap of the filament secondary provides the connection to the tubes bias circuitry. RF driving power from the transceiver is applied to the tube’s cathode using an input matching circuit.
The Tech Bench Elmers Amateur Radio Society Club Station Callsign KF6GDJ. Grounding Systems for Amateur Radio Stations. There is quite a bit of talk these days between Amateur (Ham) Radio operators about the desirability for “good grounding systems” for their home radio stations. I can tell you honestly that this was not so fervently discussed on the radio in earlier decades.
How to Properly Ground Your Parts Improve the attraction of powder to your parts while powder coating. If you are powder coating a metal part, it should be grounded. The grounding is what attracts the powder to the part. The better the ground, the less problems you have, especially when doing multiple coats. Often a powder coating gun or the guns control box will come with a little 18 gauge ground wire and a mini alligator clip that you can connect to your part to ground it.
I will call this the “stock” ground. The stock ground continues through the control box, through the wire it uses to plug into a wall outlet and after that is a mystery to me. This is not a good example of a ground. What are the advantages of using a grounding rod when powder coating? Using this ground method helps with a phenomenon called faraday cage areas. Faraday cage areas are areas of your part that get electrically shielded by a more prominent area of the part.
Overt vs Covert It is often best to blend in as opposed to standing out. In the city, that might mean driving a white sedan or van. In the bush, it might mean a camouflage or matte earth tone paint job. Other times, looking like you are not worth tangling with might be the better option.

Increasing EM Game Performance 3a. When Thing Still Don’t Work: The Check List So you’re the impatient type, and couldn’t stand to wade through all the above information and things to do. You want the bare essentials. Well this checklist is for you if your EM game doesn’t work. Just follow this list Make sure game is off. Verify the power outlet the game is plugged into works.
Verify there is power at the wall outlet, and that power is getting to the transformer. Thirty year old or older power cords can easily have breaks in them. Check all fuses with your DMM. See the Check Fuses section. Check the fuse holders too, especially on Bally games.
When I was a teenager, I used it with my old Realistic stereo receiver to improve its AM reception, and it did work. My dad put it up for me. You might also find it from other electronics suppliers.

The station began as the location for a beacon for the port of Maryborough in the s, to a pilot station in the late s and a light and signal station in the early s. For more than a century the light station and pilots at Inskip were responsible for the safety of ships at sea. It was a lonely way of life for a succession of men, often with families, as they responded to the call of people in need. If your family was there or if you have any feedback please email me: The main beach at Inskip Point where stores would be unloaded for the light station – once located 70 m inland to the left.
