Whisperlite International Stove

Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
The shaker needle is inside of the shaker jet, and should be pointed up, towards the tiny hole in the shaker jet (when the the stove is set up to cook – right side up).When the stove is cooking the needle is below the hole, and not doing anything. It is not even needed to cook.The needle is in there so that when you carry the stove around, the stove eventually goes upside down and the needle continually pokes the jet clear. Or if it gets clogged when using, turn it upside down and shake it to do the same thing.http://casanovasadventures.com/catalog/camp/p1042.htm

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

The first stop for the flow of fuel coming into a carburetor is the needle and seat. Essentially, this is a basic valve. The seat is typically conical and the needle has a point which seals against the seat to stop fuel from entering the carb at a certain level. This prevents flooding the engine and engine compartment.
The needle jet is the longish brass tube that sticks up into the carb bore. The jet needle is the spikey thing attached to the slide that strokes into the needle jet.
Within the needle jet the needle moves up and down to vary the orifice size to meter the fuel. The tapered shape of the needle controls the amount of fuel coming up through the main jet and through the needle jet. As it goes up, the opening gets larger, letting more fuel into the mix.
Which Way Do You Put a Needle in a Machine? The blunt end of a sewing machine needle has a rounded side and a flat side. You should place the needle into the machine with the flat side facing the back of the machine. The rounded side should be facing forward.
If the bike surges or hunts, the pilot jet is probably too small (lean). Other indications that the pilot circuit is lean are popping or spitting through the carburetor when the throttle is opened and popping or backfiring through the exhaust when the throttle is shut.
The needles do indeed come in different thickness and tapers. The needle jet (AKA main) is the calibrated hole that the needle fits into. If you roll the needle on a plate of glass you will see any imperfections that could effect performance. The needle should have grooves in the top for positioning it in the slide.
A typical fixed jet carburettor

Dismantle and clean them about once a year. Jets wear out after a few years. In some cases you can replace them with new ones of the right size from a carburettor service kit.

The top needle clip position is the leanest position available. This is because the needle is sitting farther down the inside of the atomizer or emulsion tube, restricting the fuel flow for a longer period of throttle slide travel. The bottom needle clip position is the richest position available.
The shank is the part that seats into your sewing machine; the flat side usually goes towards the back, and the rounded side towards the front. Some specialty needles may have a completely round shank. The shaft is the part of the needle that tapers down from the shank.
What moves the needle up and down on a sewing machine? The hand wheel controls the movement of the take-up lever and needle on a sewing machine; it can be controlled by power or by hand. Always turn the hand wheel toward you when changing your stitch selection to ensure the proper operation of your sewing machine.
The phrase “move the needle” means to have enough of an effect that people notice a change.
Needle bevel should be facing up with the needle at a 15-30 degree angle. Place the tube in the holder. Enter the vein in a smooth quick motion.
The needle must pass through five distinct tissue layers: Skin, subcutaneous fat, supraspinous ligament, interspinous ligament, and ligamentum flavum.
injection site? Answer: Yes, the needle needs to go in all the way.
The needle should stand straight up from the skin. Quickly jab the needle all the way into the skin. Hold the syringe in place with one hand, and pull back on the plunger with the other hand.
injection site? Answer: Yes, the needle needs to go in all the way.
Insert the needle into your vein with the needle bevel (opening) facing up, at a 15 to 35 degree angle, and always in the direction of the heart. The more perpendicular the needle is to the injection site, the greater chance you have of sticking the needle through the vein instead of into it.

2005 4 stroke yamaha 150 550hrs. normally use every week but due to surgery not used for 10weeks. Just before I went down I changed internal fuel filter, and zincs in motor. finally put in sunday. motor started fine left dock hit the power and started to come up on plane then stuttered and died. changed the external fuel/water seperator pump up the primer and started up again. with in a minute died down again. limped back to dock checked fuel filter and plug wire connections. pumped up primer and left dock went right onto plane for maybe 150yds then coughed and died. I could pump up primer and it would run but then die out. the fuel filter at the front of the engine would run dry until I pumped it up again. If it were a car I would suspect a leak in a fuel line but I can’t find any sign of one.
before we launched I put 10 gallons of fresh fuel in and added another bottle of ethanol stabilizer (CRC brand)
what proceedure should I follow to isolate the problem? I am a fairly competent mechanic as far as cars and trucks go. I don’t really want to have to take it to a marine mechanic.
ANSWER : This is going to be the fuel pump is not pumping any fuel. The primer is acting as a fuel pump. When you prime it, it gives the engine enough fuel to run for a little bit. But as soon as the fuel runs out, the engine is dying. So this is going to be a bad fuel pump.

I have a 1996 yamaha wave venture 1100….ran greatsat for 2 yrs..started but only ran for spray into carbs….drained fuel started and ran good. Started about month later and would only run as long as primed with starter fluids…checked fuel filter(ok)…fuel flow to fuel pump ok…output of fuel pump appears ok….but engine will only run as long as starter fluid/gas is sprayed into carbs. I don’t think it’s the carbs as it ran great a month ago…now it’s starving for gas flow….so it appears to be a fuel delivery problem…what would be the sequence of tests up to tearing into the carbs? is there a fuel filter inside the carbs? remember it fires off great when primed…until the fuel spray is consumed…
ANSWER : Check the on/off/reserve valve

My 1977 Evinrude 140 HP outboard engine looses power when it hits @4,200 rpm’s and goes down to 3,500 then back up to 4,200 and then back down to 3,000 or about there. This would continue if I didn’t slow down to 3,000 on my own. It runs fine at @ 3,000 when I slow it down. I have changed all the fuel lines from the fuel tank to the carbs, removed, cleaned out the fuel tank, put new gas and added a can of SeaFoam. I replaced the water seperator filter and cleaned the fuel filter. I feel the fuel pump is operating OK. Any ideas about what could be causing my problem? Could it be a bad power pack or stator? Help!!
ANSWER : Hi, this is obviously a stator problem since you have cleaned the fuel filter..

Take care

Water in the fuel tank of my Zodiac dinghy with Yamaha 2001 50 HP
ANSWER : I’d add a little dry gas to **** up any remaining water and give it a shot

Lifted weights don’t go back down properly – they snag
ANSWER : The leftovers you found go in the pole underneath the first weight (the one on top) so 1 weight is always locked, this weight needs to be attached so the bar returns to it original position.

09 kx250f fuel leak
ANSWER : Sounds like your carb is dirty inside. make sure its out of warranty first, (don’t want to void it), then pull off the bowl at the bottom of the carb and clean it. Try to avoid useing acetone based cleaners as this can sometimes ruin some seals/gaskets/components.
