Little help please

Recommended Posts

I hav a 2006 Yamaha Bruin 250. It was given to me in pieces(engine) got the head back on and I have a few problems.

after installing the cam gear and chain I turn the engine over back to the timing mark and my mark on the gear is 180 out. 

So I reset the timing and thinking I needed to put the tensioner in and I can’t install it. 

And now some how the transmission is in gear and can’t get it back in neutral. 

 

Any ideas?

thanks in advance

Update. Got it back in neutral. Think I will pull the stator to reset the timing that way. Still curious about the tensioner tho

yes after some research I found that. Thank you.

 

so now I have to get to the crank because I don’t understand why when I install the timing chain with cam and crank at tdc when I turn the engine over by hand back to the “T” I’m 180 out at that point

If you have the piston at TDC you should install the cam with the lobes facing down. That will put you at TDC on the compression stroke. Install the cam sprocket into the chain with the marks lining up to whatever they should line up with (different by brand), and bolt the sprocket onto the cam. Then spin it over counter-clockwise by hand and the marks should still line up. This is for all 4 strokes.

Yes I had the piston at tdc with the “T” in the hole with the plug removed. I spun the cam over so when the sprocket is installed the pin and the line on the gear is pointing to (12 O’ clock) towards the point on the head. Everything is at tdc.

      While riding my Quadzilla XLC 500 I was cruising along about 60 mph then opened it up, but once I hit 70-75 mph it died on me so I rolled to a stop and it wouldn't start for about 20-30 seconds. I then noticed the Temp light occasionally flashes on but its so quick you wouldn't notice in the day so not sure how long its been happening. The engine has started pinging when I accelerate which can be caused by many things so I drained the fuel and replaced with hi octane, fitted a new spark plug, adjusted the little washer on the high jet in the carb twice to make it run more lean which made no difference.  I tested the thermostat which opens at the correct temperature, I removed the radiator cap and started the engine and no bubbles were showing and the oil is on maximum and very clean as I have not long serviced it.
      The last time I took it out I went 14 miles and the coolant in the bottle has dropped about 1/2".
      I am now leaning towards a head gasket and have purchased a full gasket kit but was wondering if there's anything else it could be before taking the engine apart.

      What kinda of gear does everyone wear in the winter season to keep warm and safe?

      I got this almost a year ago for $500.00 it was covered in a garage and owned by a 57 year old lady.  She said she didn't need it anymore and wanted me to have it for my kids 1 of which is level 3 autistic.   Ritual oil changes and yearly service.  This was barely driven and when it was it wasn't beat on.  All in all I got a killer deal on this wheeler and nothing is wrong with it.  Starts and drives like its brand new.

      I can't for the life of me find the correct service manual for this unit. It's air cooled, not liquid (oil cooler tho) and every manual I find has the wrong front differential diagram (it does NOT have a 2wd/4wd shifter).
      I'd be eternally grateful if someone could point me in the right direction. I can probably slog it out from some of the exploded diagrams I've found, but a good "do this, do NOT do that" manual would be a godsend.
      Regards,
      Ross
