I'm trying to disassemble an older ChildLife swing

I'm trying to disassemble an older ChildLife swing set which I found on Craig's list. The nuts that hold the bolts in to form the main frame (and other parts) look pretty specialized, not at all like the typical nut. Does anyone know which tool is needed for their removal?

SOURCE: 1993 F150 4x4 w/ auto locking hubs - rotor removal

There are some special 4 tooth and hex sockets for removing the nuts inside the hubs of the truck.
YOu can find these at NAPA or maybe AutoZone or Advance. I would go to NAPA because they more than likely have it and also know something about repairing this assembly.
Ford uses Dana front end parts and NAPA has original Dana parts in stock... so it is as good as or better than original and they would have the tool for it.
Be careful and follow the procedure exactly for putting the front hubs back together.
And trust me... many of the idiots working in repair garages do not know how to do these older 4x4 hubs either... ask someone and read the books for the right procedure... some of the older mechanics may show you how to do it. Ask

2010 malibu the two bolts that hold the drivers seat rail the nuts that are securing the bolts seem to have broken loose if I take the bolts out and the nut drops how do I reinstall

The nuts should be captive and welded to the frame of the car, actually if I remember correctly, they should be studs welded to the body/ frame and nuts should hold the seat to the floor.

Can some one tell me how I can take out the backseat of a 94 grand prix I know there's bolts I'm just not sure where they are located

  1. Remove the two bolts at the base of the seat bottom (one bolt for buckets).
  2. Remove the seat bottom by lifting up and pulling out.
  3. At the bottom of the seatback, remove the two or four anchor nuts.
  4. Grasp the bottom of the seatback and swing upward to disengage the OFF sets on the upper frame bar. Then lift the seat and remove.
To install:
  1. Slide the seatback into place and make sure the OFF sets are engaged to the seatback.
  2. Install the retaining nuts and tighten to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  3. Install the seat bottom into position and tighten the retaining bolts to 18-19 ft. lbs. (25-27 Nm).

87 chevy 350 tbi will only start if if pour gas in the throddle body then keep it running by pumping the peddle. It seems to starve at higher rpms, and when it does idle the rpm's swing from hig

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad(or in this case,has gone bad). I suggest that you change the fuel pump and use a fuel cleaner in your gas tank as dirty gas may have caused the problem to begin with.

Holden Barina Swing 1998 autom. losing power, the inter cooler is changed the problem still the same

try this; there is a crank angle sensor that sit under the car behind the harmonic balancer. It's like a black round plug about 10 cm long. Change that and I'm sure things will run good again. A lot of people don't know about this, and if you are unsure of what it looks like, ask your mechanic or parts supplier to show you one.

Torsion bar end broken off

You can do several things. Check out the site and then fill out your vehicle info. When you do this you can look up NHTSA reports and Service bulletins to see if there is a fix for a recall.

Or use another bolt, grade 8, to replace the bolt you broke. You may have to be creative to fit the new bolt inside the frame or use an even longer bolt and drill another hole on the outside of the frame and just put the new bolt completely through both sides of the frame. That way you will be able to grip the end of the bolt when attaching the new nut.

It does seem odd for this to break and that is why I suggested looking for a Recall fix.

Just bought a 2002 exlorer. can't load cd's into cd player. reads cd error

I have found that any "burned" discs will not be read on older cd/radio combinations. The newer sets will tell you on the box what formats can be read...I also found this to be true on dvd players
