33cc Gas GS Moon Scooter Help? Answered

Ok, I already posted a question about this. The problem was a mislabeled sticker. Now I have more problems. The problem this time is my dad just randomly came out and started adjusting the idle screws for high speed and idling. It will now not run. I am not sure if he adjusted anything else but I need a bit of help. The engine model number is 1E36F 2-stroke 33cc engine and this is a GS Moon scooter. It has a full tank of gas/oil mixture which is correctly mixed yesterday.

Help with 33cc Gas Scooter? Answered

I have a 33cc gas scooter (sounds nerdy, I know), on the side I can make out what looks like Moto Rebel but not sure. It was used twice, sat in garage for one year without gas in the tank, then sold to me for $20 (Amazing price for something that's $350 new). Like new! It is 2-stroke but am unsure of the model number. It starts runs on choke between a small margin but won't run on ON, which is above choke on the switch. I think it may need the idle screws adjusted but am unsure. Has new and correct gas oil mix in tank and has primer button. Help would be appreciated.

Students build 33 foot tall cardboard tower

This cardboard tower built by students for an exhibition in Paris is 33 feet tall and held together only by screws. It's made up of 96 pieces of cardboard and only took 9 hours to assemble. Even better, no scaffolding was needed as the staircase around it provided all the access the students needed. Cardboard Tower via treehugger

Cen-Tech Thermometer to PC Hacking

I just got my new $30 Cen-Tech thermometer from Harbor Freight and it's begging to be hacked. I would love to be able to use this thermometer as part of a closed loop system to control a hot plate for soldering purposes. Just inside the battery compartment is a header with four pins. They nicely labeled the pins on the silk screen. I'm probing on "Gnd" and "Tx" pins. I used a MAX232 level shifter to convert the TTL output to RS232 so I could connect to my PC. I then ran the attached simply Python app that dumps the data packets to the console. Each packet has 25 characters and repeats at about 3Hz. My question is, how would one go about decoding the data packets? Some numbers seem constant while other move. I'm hoping the data format is obvious to someone. Note, the reading on the display was around 68.8 degrees F when this data was collected. The readings did jump plus/minus a few tenths while collecting. Any ideas? Thanks, Jim Console Output: 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 10 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 81 FF 15 07 A9 12 F6 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 47 33 15 10 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 81 FF 15 07 A9 12 F6 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 47 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 12 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 84 FF 15 07 A9 12 F8 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4E 33 15 13 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 85 FF 15 07 A9 12 F9 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 51 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 09 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 81 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F1 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 35 33 15 0B 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 84 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F3 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 3C 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0B 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 84 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F3 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 3C

reducing current on a power supply

So I am trying to reduce the on the current power supply I have from an old router. The out put is 12v DC 800mA (.8A). I want to use it to run a man 12v .3AI just wanted to make sure I did my math right and to make sure I didnt miss anything.Ohms LawI = V/RR= V/I V = 12 I = .812/.8 = 15 ohms resistance in theroy_Current on the fan is .3 A, I am assuming that is the max. So desired current is .25I = .25 V = 12 R is current resistance, X is additional resistance Q=(R+X)I = V/QQ= V/IR+X = V/IX = (V/I) - R V = 12 I = .25 R = 15(12/.25) - 15 = 33 ohm resistance neededSo I would need a minimum of 33 ohm resistor. Am I correct?Sorry for the explicitness of the math, its been drilled into me to show every step.

Is it reasonable to convert energy to power over time?

I have recently been talking with another person on instructables about converting 33 megajoules into a standard comparable electric unit, watts.  Now the formula for joules just so happens to be watts times seconds, but he still thinks this is wrong.  He says I can't just assume time.  Now I can assume any amount of power for any amount of time I wan't to as long as it adds up to 33,000,000 joules in the end right.  So if I wan't to consume one watt every second, then I have to set the amount of time as 33,000,000 seconds or roughly 9,166.7 hours.  This all seems fine to me right, because one watt for 33,000,000 seconds is equivalent to 33 megajoules. Now I originally didn't understand all of this so I just fumbled around and ended up converting to hp and got roughly 12, which is very close for being a rounded off number.  It comes out over one hour to equal just over 32 megajoules.   I can't seem to understand what the problem is, the DEFINITION OF ENERGY/WORK IS POWER *(OR OVER THE PERIOD OF) TIME Is there really such flawed logic here that "joules could be converted to cubic meters?"

new to arduino, want to run a dual display for 2 sensors

I'm new to the Arduino community.  wanting to set up a dual radar setup with 2 ultrasonic sensors,  (Ultrasonic Sensor Module HC-SR04), and outputting to a pair of 7 segment displays ( two 7 segment displays each).  I've found a code to do a single could use a lot of help to output two at the same time, basically 2 lanes without 2 units.  im using an arduino mega, ordered a unor3 and hopefully it can be made to run on one or the other. code is as follows: /* HC-SR04 Sensor    The circuit:     * VCC connection of the sensor attached to +5V     * GND connection of the sensor attached to ground     * TRIG connection of the sensor attached to digital pin 2     * ECHO connection of the sensor attached to digital pin 4  */    /*  This is a radar ping sensor that calcultates the speed of an  object traveling away or towards the sensor.

Making The Most Of Your Time Here

If you're reading this, you're hopefully about to become an AiR in the best workshop on earth. Congratulations! This is an amazing opportunity, and i'd like to share my experiences so that you can hopefully glean some wisdom. When I got here, I was quickly humbled. For the first time in my life, I was intimidated. I had never been in such a vast playground and wealth of resources. I put myself under a lot of pressure. I started with some smaller projects that ended up taking a lot longer than anticipated. I did everything the hard way. During this time I formed a great relationship with shop staff, and gained a deep respect for them. A month will go by and you will look back and wonder where it all went. There are a million distractions, and it's a tough game to balance them all. In my last two months, I decided I needed to pick a problem to solve. I bit off more than I could chew, and I chewed it. I did something a bit unconventional, and did a project on sustainability. I was in over my head, and I brought in a friend for help. And i'm really glad I did. Don't constrain yourself to being an 'artist'. You are about to immerse yourself deep in the heart of the maker movement. Make things that you will be proud of, that you can do nowhere else.  This is an nearly infinite opportunity, with the only limiting factor being time. You are skilled enough, have the aptitude, and can do absolutely anything. So what on earth do you make?  Quick Tips: -Pick a problem, and solve it.  Pick a problem that's bigger than one person.  -Don't shackle additional commitments during this time. (I burnt out from a big side project) Devote yourself to the shop. -Reach out to someone at Autodesk, and see if you can get mentorship, or use your art to inform things that they are interested in. Form a relationship with them. You will find wisdom and friendship. -Find a peer, and check in regularly about the scope of your work.  -Pick someone to collaborate on a big project with. Make someone else's dream come true.  -Space out your classes. Don't do it all at once, or you'll forget what that critical button on the DMS is.  Time Breakdown: 33% of your time goes towards collaboration 33% towards learning new stuff that's way above your comfort level 33% for the stuff you can do with your eyes closed

Automatically unsubscribed from multiple people

Hi there, I don't know if it's just me, but for some reason, I get automatically unsubscribed from multiple users on this site. I noticed that the amount of people I was following dropped from 50 to around 26 yesterday. I re-subscribed to the authors I follow the most, up to 36 people. Yet it was at 33 today. This all seemed to happen overnight, so 'out of my control'. I don't know what's causing it, but it's certainly annoying. Some info about my system: Lenovo G500s laptop with Windows 8.1 The browser I'm using is Firefox, version 35.0.1

Space Trash Crowds Orbiting Satellites

Two or three times a day, a satellite circling Earth narrowly misses destruction by an orbital hailstorm of junk sweeping the busy super highways of space.A spreading cloud of shrapnel from the collision of two satellites earlier this month is making wrecks for working spacecraft around Earth all but inevitable, analysts warn. As the ninth significant crack-up in two years -- including a punctured nuclear satellite -- the wreckage of Iridium 33 and Cosmos 2251 is fostering a chain reaction of collisions that puts billions of dollars of spacecraft and manned space flights at risk.Full article and really cool slideshow: Harmless Debris on Earth Is Devastating in Orbit - Wall Street Journal.via benjaneer.

Any ideas for what i can do with an empty Star Wars Darth Maul Lightsaber Candy Stick?

Picked one up for under a dollar at Salvos last year, and it's been sitting at the bottom of my wardrobe since. I have yet to open it up, but I reckon it should be completely hollow inside. It's about 33 cm long, 3 cm wide at the emitter heads and about an inch wide around the middle. Also, there is a blade on each end similar in construction to the toys you see in department stores, but only 12cm long. What should I do with it?

Yeah, about my miter saw...

I know lots of people want me to post my miter saw, and I said I would. But I decided that I'm not going to post. It uses a lot of pieces, and only 3-4 people would be able to build it anyway. Sorry if your disappointed, but I did take pictures of it while I was taking it apart, so you'll be able to see the insides. I also included a parts list below if you're curious about how many pieces it used. :-)    Rods: 996 green-249 white-123 blue-347 yellow-96 red-34 gray-9 rigid tan-1 rigid black-1 flexi-rod (yellow rod length)-12 flexi-rod (gray rod length)-68 orange-56 Connectors: 804 dark gray-15 light gray-34 red-232 green-33 yellow-171 orange-59 white-74 blue-81 purple-179 Panels: 29 triangle mini-12 triangle small-16 square small-1 Other: 205 chain link-33 blue spacer-31 silver spacer-66 tan clip-18 metallic blue clip-15 black Y clip-5 red gear-8 small blue gear-2 orange splicer-12 battery-powered motor-1 tire-6 black snap cap-3 rubber band-3 fishing line-2 strands Total: 2,034 Here's some pictures of the saw's deconstruction and pieces.

Smash atoms with Lego!

... or at least detect the debris of smashed particles with Lego: The LHC scientists do not yet have enough data to claim a discovery. But in the meantime, at home in Copenhagen, one physicist Sascha Mehlhase from the Niels Bohr Institute has made a part of the collider, the Atlas detector, out of LEGO toy bricks. »It took me about 48 hours to build the 3D model on my laptop and another 33 hours to actually put together all the pieces, this whole process spread out over several weeks,« explains Sascha. The model is made of 9,500 lego bricks and is about 1:50 in scale. There is no construction manual yet, but there will soon be one, he says on his website. The model is very intricate, even showing the innermost pixel detector. University Post article. Gallery of images.

The Thought Bunker #1

Hello! I am doing a new Forum Topic train. This one involves some thinking. But it's not math! It's the fun thinking. The kind you can talk and laugh(and in this case, maybe yawn) about. So, what do you say? This week's Thought Bunker: If everyone in the world were to yawn at the same exact time, would Earth have enough oxygen to sustain all of us? Well, what do you think? Tell us! And now for this weeks best-thought:   Nov 4, 2009. 4:33 PMSeleziona says:  yes, everybody breathes normally, no oxygen shortages, and yawning takes a little more air, but not too much. So earth would have enough oxygen, and half of the world is asleep when we are awake, so it would be highly improbable

I am trying to figure the new wattage? Answered

Hello, I built the ark welder from this instructable found at I'm trying to figure the new wattage I have two transformers 1: 650 watt MOT-primary at 120 volts 60 Hz 5.41 amps secondary at 16.5 volts 39.36amps 2: 600 watt MOT primary @ 120v  60Hz  5 amps secondary @ 16.5 volts 36 amps the primaries are wired in parallel in the secondaries are in series. The secondaries test at 33 V and I'm guessing roughly 76 amps. I want to calculate the wattage. Is the wattage calculator from the voltage on the primaries (120+120)*76 or calculated from the voltage on the secondaries (16.5+16.5)*76 or am I a complete moron? Also the primaries are parallel are they both 120 V or are they 60 V each thanks in advance.

Fan needs 12 volts at .44 amps. How can I limit the current to .44 amps from 2 amps, without losing the 12 volts? Answered

I am trying to power a fan that needs 12 volts at 440 milliamps. I have a wall-wart transformer that is 12 volts, 2.0 amps, and I many components. I have thermal compound,  heat sinks, resistors, 12 volt and lm317 voltage regulators. So, how can I limit the current to 440 milliamps from 2.0 amps, without losing the 12 volts? Also, I tried a resistor at 33 ohms and it burnt out. Thank you, Jeremy (Please note: I am teaching myself electrical engineering, I have not taken physics yet. My knowledge is based on sever books, web resources, and hundreds upon hundreds of youtube videos)

2 Firefox Bug Reports

MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008), OS X Yosemite Version 10.10.1 Firefox 33.1 or any Instructable for that matter. No screenshot When replying to a comment on an 'ible I have to click "Make Comment" twice in order for it to send. I realize that comments don't always get published because of this bug. It has happened to me on earlier versions of Firefox, as well. I now double check to be sure that my comments are sent. When creating Instructables, I always use the "Open In A New Tab" button so that my viewers don't lose my page after clicking on my links. This function does not work on my operating system. I have checked many 'ibles to see if it is isolated to just my published ones and that is not the case. The open in a new tab function does not work.

How much water is in my cistern?

I built a 33 gallon cistern my garage to collect condensate from my HVAC system. (I didn't have room outside my condo for a rain barrel). It has a spigot and a short hose, it lives above my utility sink, which is where the overflow goes when the cistern is full. I'm hoping some clever makers can give me some ideas on how I can build something that will tell me how much water is in the cistern. I have Samsung SmartThings so I've considered putting a water sensor just below the overflow hole, so I will know when it's at 100%, but I would prefer to have a percentage reading and an alarm when it gets to 90% or so. I considered an arduino with an ultrasonic sensor but that a bit involved... Not opposed to it but please be prepared to hold my hand thru the process of you propose it! ☺. Non-SmartThings solutions also welcome.Thank you - looking forward to your genius ideas!!Mark
