I need a real mechanics input


Recommended Posts

2014 uxv700i will not start, has fire, checked all sensors voltages, resistances etc,  NO codes showing. Compression 90, manual says 213,  checked valve lash,  did not make a difference

When i turn crankshaft this is what I am seeing, with inspection covers off top.   Exhaust valves open then shut, intake valves open then shut , turn it just a tad more and loud snap, click ? on exhaust valves, i can feel this.

even if timing jumped and i bring to TDC and redo valve lash i should see a correction, but this is not happening

any input greatly !!! appreciated.  

Thank you all

Well, i got some feedback from another forum member.  

First the clank or snap in exhaust valves is a built in decompression on camshaft


Second per input from member I took off valve cover,  brought flywheel to timing mark, checked camshaft and hash marks, they did not line up horizontally,  appears that engine jumped timing.


Will reset and confirm tomorrow

thanks all

Hi, update !!!  The person who tried to fix this before me when they pulled off flywheel and reassembled did not tighten nut on side of stator case good enough, when i pulled flywheel, the whole inside taper shaft destroyed.  new flywheel on order, no wonder i could not time.  when watching timing mark and piston , the piston was already going back down before timing mark arrived in circle, !


Ill update when i get flywheel back on and give it another try

learned alot about that decompression on the exhaust valve also.  there is no way you will ever see the 213 psi on compression tester.  this allows pressure to escape at low rpms.  pretty neat setup when you think about it.  when started and rpms increase that little slider goes away and your back to normal compression.  every motor you dive into you learn so much about while working on them.

      We just bought a used 2017 American Landmaster TW450. No hour meter that I can find, so not sure exactly how much it has been used. 
      The first 2 days we had it, the starter was a little sketchy, but it started after 2-3 tries. Sometimes when turning the key, we would hear a loud metal "clink" sound. Like the starter made contact, but didn't have enough power to turn. 
      THIS MORNING... Turning the key, we hear a single click sound. That's it. Even with a new battery, the starter is still doing the same thing. Both batteries (old and new) were reading 12.8 volts on volt meter. So I'm wondering what else could be going on? Any ideas on what to look for would be greatly appreciated...
      Thank you!

      I just purchased an Axis Pro 750 from Lowes.  I have two questions not covered in owners manual.  1:  In the glovebox there is a 12V connector, it is HOT with key off, is that for a battery maintainer to be plugged in or what is the purpose?  2:  In the instrument cluster there is a digital read out for hours, miles and odometer,  there is also a digital readout that is flashing, it can be adjusted and looks like 1 - 24  what is it?

      Hello I am new here but have had this machine for about 5 years. I am having issues with it surging and sometimes sounding like a small backfire thru the intake.  When putting in low, high or reverse it will struggle then go full power then struggle. It will only do the small backfire thing while in neutral reving it many times. Once in awhile it will throw a check engine light.  
      Parts replaced/checked:
        I have checked the valve lashing, timing and adjusted. Parts replaced are the coils, spark plugs, injectors, fuel lines, fuel pump, IAC sensor, TPS sensor, throttle cable, speed sensor, primary and secondary clutch and belt.

      I have a part that fell over to the exhaust and burned the harness up. I can't figure out what it is. Does anyone know what the start relay looks like? The part I can't figure out has 4 wires, a red power, a green and brown wire, a black and unsure what the 4th color was. Anyone have a clue?
