How to sync carbs on a motorcycle



This video demonstrates the procedure to synchronize a carburetor on a 1977 Honda CB550. It is really important, especially for bikes of this vintage, to synchronize your carbs at the beginning of every riding season or after any repair or adjustment to the carbs. This bike still needs some work to be road ready, but it has a lot of potential and is super cafe racer cool. If you are attempting to do this procedure yourself and have any questions before you start, feel free to let me know. That’s the good thing about Youtube, FREE INFORMATION FOR ALL!!!!! EDIT: Here are a few edits I would like to make to this video after watching it a couple of times. 1. Make sure your carb synch comes after everything else in a normal tune up. This includes Valve clearances, cam chain tension, spark plug gap/cleaning, point gap, ignition timing, air filter cleaning/replacement, and all the air bleed screw settings should be checked. 2. Engine speed for a carb synch should be around 1500rpms if possible. 3. The adjuster screw lockdown nuts should always be re-tightened after adjustment (I forgot to show it)

Your Questions About Carpentry Tools



Jenny asks…

I have a carpentry tool invention and i need to find someone to buy the patent / license off me?

copy and paste this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGv6gzq3PO8 i have the patent filed on this and i need to find a company to manufacture this but i would really like to find a company to buy the patent rights from us, its a truss setter for setting trusses on house, what can you tell me

Dusty answers:

Wouldn’t you need to carry around a ton of those for every project? Seems like you need at least two for every truss so if you had 20 trusses, you would need 40 of them? It definitely looks faster than measuring and using a 2×4 but not that much faster (btw – you don’t have to cut the 2×4 for each truss). Maybe I would use one to hold the truss in place while I hammered my 2×4 in place. Positioning trusses is not exactly a precision job so I’d have to think about that.

Anyway, having a patent is good. It definitely gives you something to sell. I would personally see if I could get a commitment to buy some from Lowes and Home Depot. If you could get a commitment from one of those places to buy 10,000 of them, you’re home free.

Ken asks…

selling hand made martial arts weapons?

i had this idea to start selling some of my weapons online. i make hand made weapons just as a hobby and i have access to carpentry/metal working tools. making things like nunchuku, shurikens, tonfa, etc.
can you sell things like that on ebay? ive seen a few. or i could just start my own website where people could order.
would people really be interested in that?

Dusty answers:

You can sell them all on ebay and many people do already, but not very many sell handmade weapons…most manufactured ones. I would research out your competition on there first, know thier price levels and that way you can be competitive with them.

You could also start a website on your own selling those items but there are already some great masters out there like James Horne from Florida that do this…although they are expensive their workmanship is top rate and first quality on custom made weapons.

The biggest challenge you will face is dealing with situations that will happen if you sell weapons and they break. You are going to want to have solid disclaimer, legal warranty and what not in order to protect yourself against people that want their money back or a replacement item because they abused them and/or broke them. Good luck.

Ruth asks…

Industrial & Mechanical style paintings and artists?

I’m doing a beginners painting course, and I wonder if anyone out there knows of some artists who painted with an industrial style (use of greys, machines and machinery, tools, industrial buildnings and interiors). they can be from any movement, but I just want those who focused on industrial and mechanical things. I want to use that style for my own project, which is to paint the carpentry and metal workshops near the studio.

Dusty answers:

There was a popular movement in the twenties and thirties when our culture was obsessed with things mechanical and several artists painted in the styles you are looking for. The most prominent was probably Fernand Leger

http://www.artcyclopedia.com/artists/leger_fernand.html

but there were others like Robert Delaunay , Juan Gris , Georges Braque (first cubist) , Francis Picabia , and the Russian Kasimir Malevich.
Good luck with your project.

Mary asks…

What tools did carpenters use in the 1800′s?

I have an assignment on the history and technology to do with bikes from the 1800′s until now.
I need to know what tools carpenters used before technology had advanced, and the materials that were used to build bikes over 100 years ago.
Thankyou :)

Dusty answers:

They had a hand saw. Drills. Handkerchiefs. Nails were expensive. If they tore down an old house they would save the nails for the new house. Bikes weren’t that popular in the 1800′s but harley davidson has been making motorcycles since 1903.

Your Questions About Wood Crafting Tools



Ken asks…

translate to afrikaans please?

Camera basics

So what is a camera anyway? Your camera is a tool. No different than a wood carver’s chisels. The chisels do not make finely crafted artwork, the wood carver does. It is the same way with your camera. The camera does not make the photograph, you do. Never allow yourself to feel like the camera is in control. The camera is your tool and you must use it as a tool.
We need to take care of our camera

Whether you use a film or digital camera, there are some basic tenets of camera care that cross all spectrums. These basics are very similar to proper lens care.

the 3 main enemies of your camera are:

•Dirt
•Shock
•Water

Photography Equipment

All art requires equipment of some sort and photography is no different. Where painters have paint and brushes, photographers have cameras and lenses. I am going to tell you about the equipment used to make photographs.

Cameras

A camera is the most basic piece of equipment that photographer’s use to turn light into photographs. In order to take better photos it is a good idea to understand as much as possible about your camera and its capabilities.

Body: The camera body is the most basic part of a camera. It is the box that holds the film and the camera controls. The lens is either built-into the body or attaches to the body. The body also houses a battery that powers the shutter, flash, light meter, and other controls. There are generally rings to connect a strap to the camera for easy carrying as well.

Lens: The lens is the part of the camera (or an attachment for the camera) that focuses light into the body and onto the film. The aperture is also contained within the lens.

Lenses

Photographic lenses are the eye of your camera. These conglomerations of glass and plastic focus light onto your film and control the magnification factor of your images.
Optical Lens: Filter Threads: Focusing Ring: Focal Length Ring: Aperture Ring: Aperture: Lens Mount:

Props and Backgrounds

Photography props and backgrounds are a photographer’s way of creating a scene when the actual location cannot be used or would be dangerous. Here is where you will find information on available props, backgrounds and other supplies as well as ways to create your own.

the sipix camera can only take pictures in the day light … it is AAA battery-powered, no memory card, it is roughly 5cm wide and long and about 1.5cm thick. it is the perfect size for a key ring

the Polaroid camera was Manufactured in the late 1990s … it has a fixed shutter and a built in electronic flash… Has built in “close up” lens for subjects less than 6ft away … i don’t know why but i think this camera looks professional … not really

About the size of a tin of mints, this Che-ez Snap is the smallest digital camera in the world! Take up to 26 to 104 pictures. Internal rechargeable battery, Self timer function,

Richard asks…

Building a big table?

Okay, well, I don’t have any experience really with construction or crafting or anything like that. But I want a large table, a size which I can’t find anywhere else, don’t care if it looks like crap, don’t mind spending some time on it, and I want it cheap. However, I won’t be here forever, so I need to make sure I can make it so that it can be taken apart and moved through narrow stairways and doors without having to saw pieces off. I was thinking this could be done by creating multiple tables, which would be able to lock together. The way I was thinking of doing this was by having metal pieces of various shapes and sized and having them attach the legs to the tables, and the tables to each other, and such. These would have small holes in them to enable you to screw in screws through it, and this would hold the pieces together. I just wanted to make sure such a thing exists. I would need L shaped ones to attach the top of the table to the legs, and some flat ones to attach the tables to each other.

Secondly, after it gets all put together, it would likely have a small gap over where the tables connect. If there a way to cover that up that allows me to take it apart again easily or would it not work.

I want it to be smooth on the top so I can write on it and not have my penmanship all messed up because it is not smooth. Is there a good way to get that taken care of? Sanding still leaves it a bit ruff doesn’t it?

The wood I am likely to buy will probably be cheap and ugly. Is the wood able to be dyed? Should I paint it? How can I polish it up some?

I have some basic tools but I quite likely might need more tools. Are these rentable? Should I see if I can borrow them from someone? If they’re not expensive I could buy them, but what would I need?

The size of the table I am going to do will be an L shape, 15×3 + 12X3 with some overlap in the corner. I decided to split it up into 5 tables: 3X6, 3X6, 3X3, 3X4, 3X3. How much should everything all together cost?

Thank you for your time and help.
Ehhh… Okay, well I don’t need super cheap. I can spend a few hundred without a problem. I just didn’t want to have to spend thousands which is what it would cost to get something like this pre-built.

Dusty answers:

Here is the cheapest way I know how to help you without writing a book here.

Make a simple frame using a #2 grade spruce 2X4 the dimensions you wish, be extra sure it’s square. Cut the ends on a 45 to join them together. Table legs can be bought in almost all home builder supplies with attaching hardware included. I’d recommend about a 15 degree angle and about 32″ long. You’ll need to cut and install corner blocks in your frame for the legs to attach too. Predrill holes about half the dia. Of the wood screws, just don’t get in a hurry and try screwing in screws without predrilling them because you’ll split the wood.

For the top I’d recommend using a good grade Luann plywood which will cost about 35-40 bucks. Use a router and do something to round over the top edge of the plywood and bottom pieces of the frame. Buy about eight 2″ “L brackets” and attach them to the inside of the frame to attach the top too. Again pre-drill all holes. To attach the top to the frame be sure to use a wide wood screw short enough as not to go through the top of the plywood.

Then before assembly use a good polyurethane finish and follow the directions to the letter. After the first coat dries, use steel wool to buff all the surfaces and reapply a second coat and then assemble. It will

Chris asks…

How can I get into a high government position?

There is evidence of human technology (stone tools, antlers, bones, and wood) that dates back to 10 million years ago. According to a recently updated time line our species didn’t discover fire until 8 million years after that!

It took 3000 years to go from the discovery of static electricity to get to microscopes.

We have the internet, nuclear power, we’ve google-mapped the Earth, and have gone into space, just in 200 years. These are just a few of the most advanced technological achievements, and they’re spread over a wide variety of subjects.

It’s good to acknowledge our accomplishments as a species, but a species that thinks itself advanced is the first mark of a primitive one. We MUST have gotten “help” along the way.

Could extraterrestrial beings possibly be the reason for an exponential advancement in technology? I’ve seen a U.F.O. before, I’m 100% positive it wasn’t a human made craft. There are also a lot and A LOT of stories of other people having encounters.

If we do have extraterrestrial help they probably have a more hands off approach, I doubt the president has the mother ship on speed dial. However I bet governments all around the world all have proof of alien “hints” that they don’t release to the public.

I really want to get to the bottom of this, if we had proof of other beings existence it would help unify the world….somehow anyways.

Who knows how to get into high level government positions? What’s the easiest country to get a high level government position in?

Dusty answers:

Well, in America if you pattern yourself after Hitler from the 30′s on, you should get elected if you have charisma and a silver tongue. You don’t really have to have any great plan but just say that you are for hope and change. It probably will help if you are a minority ethnic group but if you comb your hair like JFK you could probably win anyway.

Regarding your extraterrestrial info you should really read Isac Asimov’s “We are not alone” This came out in the early 60s and I still think it is the best book on extraterrestrial ‘proof’. You should be able to find it on amazon.com or maybe alibris.com.

Good luck to you.

Sandra asks…

If you were lost in the woods.?

Would you rather have a bible (the product of religion) or a finely crafted multi-tool pocket knife (the product of science).

Dusty answers:

I would definitely choose the multi-tool pocket knife.
Actually surviving to live seems like a better choice than reading and dying…
Then again, maybe there’s a severe shortage of fire starting material, so the paper could be very useful.
You may or may not be religious, and you can pray if you like, but having the bible with you will not be as much practical help as the pocket knife.
Don’t forget sometimes in survival keeping your spirits up is often as important as actual survival techniques, so maybe there isn’t a definite answer to this…
But I still choose the knife :)
