Warrior problems

recently riding my warrior, the key connecting the camshaft sprocket and camshaft broke. after fixing it, the engine would not run. doing a little poking around, i found the timing of the camshaft and spark had been retarded, by about 4.5 degrees (crankshaft rotation, 9 degrees camshaft). I dont know how a broken key would have affected my timing. i have remedied the camshaft timing, but i'm clueless how to fix the ignition timing. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Warrior problems

Get a manual for it. It'll tell you how to get your timing back to normal.

On another note, you can change the timing by pulling off the flywheel cover. If you don't know how to do it then don't do it. Definitely get a manual for it. They come in handy for all sorts of things.

Re: Warrior problems

I already have a manual, and all it suggests is to check if the flywheel is tight, and it is. it doesnt say how to adjust the timing, as it is supposedly done automatically...but if my flywheel is out, which it should not be, i obviously need to do something to adjust it...and i dont see how a broken camshaft key would throw out timing at all....

Re: Warrior problems

in the engine overhaul section it should tell you how to reassemble the motor so that the timing is in the right spot. if i had to guess i'd say you're a tooth off.

Re: Warrior problems

i know the camshaft is timed right, but when the flywheel mark for the camshaft timing is aligned, the intake valve opens while the piston is still moving up, and pushes air out, instead of sucking it in. I corrected this by moving the camshaft 1 tooth backwards, to retard the opening. Thats the reason i think my timing is out too. Somehow the entire flywheel got out of adjustment, if possible i'd just like to correct the ignition timing, instead of pulling off the left engine cover and buying a flywheel puller and new gaskets. Is that my only option or does anyone know how to change the ignition timing? Btw, its a 2000 warrior. Thanks
