side by side fix
« on: November 12, 2015, 07:42:00 pm »
My brother-in-law bought one of those economy level side by side UTVs from Tractor supply this fa;; and had trouble with it from day one. When pushing the choke in after starting, the knob would never quite seat right, and the engine was always acting like it was choking out. We decided to try and adjust the choke cable as it looked like it had been put together incorrectly at the carb. We tried this and we tried that, repeatedly re-positioning and adjusting the cable. Nothing we did made things better on this basically new machine. I then remembered the little precision applicator of Bluecreeper I keep in my truck. I went and got it and put a couple drops on the cable at one end, and a couple drops on the other end, and a drop or two on the carb linkage. As close as to instant as you can get, the cable started working properly and the chole opening and closing as it should. The engine stopped smoking from the extra fuel dumping in it, and it now starts good cold or warm. All because of a couple three drops of Bluecreeper.

 I had a carriage bearing on my mill that locked up on me and had a job that needed get done. Took the bearing off thinking I had a new replacement here, none was found, got the bleucripper out and a few drops later it was loose, a few more drops and it was turning, a few more drops and it was spining. it was put back on the mill and worked fine....   :)

All because of a couple three
Gotta love that Michigan "slang"!

I used that on a wood splitter vendor from New York at the farm show down in Louisville, Ky a couple 3 years ago. He'd never heard it before. ???
I swear he started staring at my mouth to see if I had any teeth left.
I believe he was also looking for signs of bruising from a possible fall from a turnip truck! :D
