Why won't my two stroke run?

I have a two stroke weed eater engine (actually from a tiller but it's the exact same) and I am having trouble getting it to run. I have the carb screw tightened all the way so the carb is opened up as much as it can be but when I start it, it coughs like it wants to die then it dies. If I squeeze the throttle a little it will continue running or if I squeeze it all the way it will still run. It just won't run if I let it sit. Also, I am intending to use it to put on a bike and it has a clutch but it doesn't really work that well. It will engage without even squeezing the throttle. Any idea of where I can get a small geared clutch that will fit it? Thanks.

"Re-making" Ninjutsu, combining Krav Maga and Wing Chun

Hiya guys! Recently I had to give up studying Ninjutsu, because there were no close Dojos. I decided to study Wing Chun instead, but I was still very sad I won't become an urban ninja. Later on, I watched some material art TV shows - I then heard about Krav Maga. It's an israeli martial art that focuses on self-defense. I don't want to give up Wing Chun for it, and nor it for Wing Chun. Now here comes the interesting stuff - I came up with a great idea. Ninjas were basically assassins, but that's not what I wanted to be. I wanted a lifestyle. If I will study parkour, I will be able to run jump and hop, like ninjas did. If I will study Wing Chun, I will be an expert an unarmed combat. Krav Maga will teach me weapon stuff - defending attacks, disarming, and fighting with them. All left is to be sneaky, and here I am - a whole new modern ninja-like life style, designed for life in the city! My question is, will I be able to learn Wing Chun and parkour at the same time, and as soon as I'll reach Wing Chun Mastery I'll start with Krav Maga. I'm not sure if I'll ever make it to master 2 martial arts, but the ninjas mastered fighting with almost any weapon, so I guess it's possible. Your opinion?

How to run a mini halogen light from the mains? Answered

Hi all, I am working on a project and need to run a mini (35mm) halogen globe from the mains.  I live in Australia and our  mains from off 24v.   If I try and run the halogen it works ok but soon heats-up a lot.  I'm assuming that I need a transformer to reduce the voltage or amperage but cant find anything on the net!  I want to run the lamp that I am building direct from the AC socket.  Does anyone have any solutions?  I have also looked at 12v LED ones as well and thought that this might be the best path to go down.   Thanks, Marcus

led running brake light circuit for motorcycle?

i want to add 5 LEDs wired for 12 volt in parallel to my motorcycle running lights. then when brake is pressed they will light up brighter. i think i need to add a resistor to each input ( brake and running light wire) to drop voltage down. maybe 9 volts for running lights (which would be on all of the time) and another 3 or 4 volts for the brake light so added to 12 to 13 volts for bright brake lights. any ideas how do i do this and what size resistor i should use or am i looking at this wrong?

Atmel AVR IDE/assembler won't run (Windows 8)

I'm trying to write some code for my AVR in assembly, but I cannot get either the Atmel studio 6.0 (with or without sp1) or AVR32 studio 2.6 to run. Studio 6.0 with the service pack states that it will work on windows 8 but consistently gives the error message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)". AVR32 generates a Java error. This is consistent across all compatability settings and running as administrator. This is on a pretty much clean install of windows 8 pro x64, with all updates and the latest release of both 32 and 64 bit Java. All other software has installed and run without issues, including the equivalent software for microchips microcontrollers. I would appreciate any suggestions as to how to get this software to run, or any alternatives that may work. Thanks in advance for any help.

multiple processes in arduino? Answered

Is there an easy way to run multiple voids at the same time on an arduino uno? preferrably without aditional libraries, but I cannot flash AVR code to it (must be through IDE).  I do NEED to run the processes at the same time, no they do not share pins or variables, and the timing does not need to be precise.  I am trying to run two steppers at the same time, but different speeds, but the big catch is that I don't have "smart" drivers, just a 2003 and 293, so they each require a separate void to move, and they cannot be run simultaneously without running both voids at the same time.  Basically, I'm NOT looking for an alternative, just a way to run two voids at the same time (or switching back and forth very quickly without being affected by "delay();".
