How do you remove the fuel line from the intake manifold on a Ford Ranger XLT with a 2.9 Litre engine?

Not sure what you are saying that broke.
If the line is plastic and the fitting has no place for a wrench, you use a tool made to release the spring tension inside the connector. AC lines use the same setup.
If the plastic line is broke, you may be able to get a repair kit at your local auto parts store. The fuel line is designed to be replaced all in one piece, not repaired.

How to replace the switch on a flymo grass strimmer.

Hi Johnstone

Before replacing the power switch, try some other approach or you have need to analyze first. I have a question for you, Is your strimmer a cord less unit ? or with ac cord? If its cordless unit so its a battery operated, if so, try to check the battery. But if its with cord or ac cord, try to check the continuity of ac cord by using multimeter or ohm meter,

We need the schematics, to also put toggle switch for starting

Fitting a toggle switch for starting used to be a budget method of overcoming starter switch and other problems on older cars but will not work where the standard ignition key contains a transponder.

You haven't provided enough detail for a good answer but wiring a (spring return type) toggle switch to operate the starter motor is relatively easy and requires only a battery live and a wire to the starter solenoid or to the coil of the starter relay if you wish to use a relay.
Mostly these wires can be extended from the existing harness to the new switch.

92 Merc Topaz. starter spins,ignition switch is off,disconnected battery to stop starter. relay checks good, starter checks good.

There must be a connection between the battery terminal and the starter terminal, on the starter.
The soleniod contacts are probably welded together or the return spring is weak. Fit a new solinoid.

How do i remove a starter motor out of a 98 petrol hilux and repair solenoid

Remove the battery terminals from the battery, take a look down where the starter is and locate the two bolts holding it in and the cables going to it. Determine if its easier to undo the bolts and cables from the top or underneath the car. One cable will have a 12mm nut holding it on, and the other will be a plug in type. Remove the cables and bolts, making sure when you remove the last one that the starter is not going to drop out onto the ground. Once you remove the starter place in in a vice, gripping on one of the mounting holes or around the alloy housing where it fits into the hole on the gearbox. Be sure not to grip in on the end with the two screws and long bolts, or anywhere near there, as you could cause some damage. Remove the three 8mm bolts from the solenoid, you wil notice the cover will spring out a little. Remove the cover and you will see the plunger and two contacts. Remove the plunger simply by pulling it out, take care not to lose the long spring. Check to see if the contacts are dirty or worn down, usually one side will wear down further. Check the copper ring on the plunger and see if it is worn down. A lot of the time you can get away with just replacing the contacts and sanding the ring on the plunger with light sandpaper. Remove one of the contacts at a time, do this by undoing the nut which holds the contact in place on the stud you removed the cable from when removing the starter from the vehicle. Remove the plastic insulator and rubber o'ring (if still intact) then remove the stud and contact as one. Be sure not to lose the plastic insulator on the inside. Lightly tap the stud, holding the contact and they will separate. Fit the new contact to the stud, and leave it loosely in. Refit the contact and stud, with the insulator to the solenoid housing. Re fit the external insulator and o'ring, followed by the nut. Tighten the nut will lightly tapping the contact to keep it flat in the solenoid. Do the nut up until the stud pulls firmly into the contact.
The second contact is done in much the same way, remove the cable that goes from the solenoid to the brushes in the side of the starter by undoing the nut holding it on, then the next nut, insulator etc.. The difference is the stud does not press fit into the contact. Remove the stud first by simply pulling it out from the inside. Then slide the contact out, ensuring the paper inulsulator is retained. Be careful not to damage the connection on the inside that goes down into the solenoid. Simply fit the new contact in reverse order, and once you have just about done it up, tap it flat lightly as per the other side. Do it up completely and re-fit the cable. Fit the either cleaned or replaced plunger being sure to oil the main sliding part of it lightly,and putting a dab of grease at the pointy end. Be sure to remember to fit the spring back in. Re fit the cover with the three bolts. You can test the starter with jumper cables from a battery. Place the black cable on the alloy body of the starter, and the red cable on the free stud, where you removed the cable on the vehicle. Using a piece of wire link the small terminal where the small wire came off on the vehicle to the red cable, being sure the starter is firmly held or secured in a vice. The starter will begin to turn the instant you make the connection so don't get a fright.. haha.
Refit the starter with bolts and cables, refit the battery terminals and presto.
If the starter fails to turn when you test it, there is likely a problem with a burnt out armature inside the starter. (unless you don't hear the distinctive click of the solenoid.) If this is the case, and it makes no noise whatsoever, there is either a worn brushes inside the starter, or the pull in winding or connection is broken on the solenoid

2001 s10 auto trans; starter spins does not engage in flywheel

Starter drive (bendix) is bad. Starter drive is spring loaded and when cold sometimes hangs up or spring goes bad. 2 options - remove starter, disassemble and install new starter drive or just buy rebuilt start (has new drive in)
