Farish 08 - help!


Recommended Posts

Hello helpful people,

 

I've been having running issues with my new graham farish 08.

 

It ran well for a few months, but now suddenly has become juttering and slow

 

I think the quartering may have shifted, or a crank or something ????

 

Does anyone know of a "quick" fix, is this a common problem (not unheard of?)

 

It also gets hot when running a few feet and emits a slight burning smell.

 

it slows down and speeds up too

 

Thanks in advance

Paul :)

Have you looked to see if there is anything interfering with the motor, possibly something that it has picked up? If you haven't might be worth doing this and also checking to see how freely the motor spins at the same time.

If it was quartering it'd likely show one particularly sticky tight spot per rotation of the wheels. I wouldn't muck with that until sure that's the problem.

 

I'd remove the body and the motor so it can be run disconnected from the drive - if the motor runs ok on its own then there's something in the drivetrain (not necessarily quartering). If not, then the motor is the problem.

 

Cheers,

Alan
