Replace needle packing on Paasche VL airbrush

Am overhauling my old Paasche VL air brush. Purchased the MU-612 Teflon Packintg and Packing nut. My VL had the packing nut, a white washer (?) and a rubber o-ring. Does MU-612 replace the old o-ring with the teflon packing? Or is MU-612 the wrong parts? Do I remove the old o-ring and toss it, using the new parts only???

I just replaced my hinge on the passenger side, I will assume you took the old one out by pushing it forward ( it then fell to the floor area and you retrieved it. The new one should align close to the opening and you will need to pull it through with needle nose pliers You will have to practice aligning the threads into the openings. I started on a 45 degree angle, it took me 5 tries before it lined up for the nuts.

SOURCE: Why does my PCV valve and grommet keep popping out

It sounds like the line from the PCV valve to the engine is blocked. Double check the valve itself, it should rattle when you shake it. Put it back in but don't connect it to the intake. If it doesn't blow out check for blockages in the line between the PCV valve and the intake or possibly the entry hole inself. Hope this helps.

My fisher minute mount 2 goes up slow but it turns left and right ok

You may have to release some tension in the packing nut on the piston seal, if its too tight it will bind and slow down the piston, try replacing the fluid also with synthetic Mobil 1 Transmission fluid !

Simple job!!! You just pull off the molding on the inside of the door and you should see some foam rubber packing. Remove that and you will see the nuts that hold the mirror on.

I have a 2003 F150 2x4 Supercrew and I'm going to replace the OEM inner and outer front wheel bearings. The truck makes a clicking sound. Can anybody help?

You need to remove the front wheels and then the brake calipers and brackets. Then pop off the hub nut cover. now remove the cotter pin and cap and nut. Now pull off the rotor. Replace whatever parts you plan to replace as well as the rear seal and grease the bearings by packing them. Now reassemble. Tighten the but down about 40 ft lb. Turn the rotor forward and backward now loosen the nut and turn it again. now tighten it back up to the same torque and then back it off 1.4 turn and reassmeble everything else.

Oil cooler line replacement on a 1998 Suburban How to get the lines off of the oil pump

Ok...answer to the question about how to remove the oil cooler lines from the oil filter housing. Once you remove the oil cooler line, either upper or lower (Or both) from the radiator. By the way, I have a 98 GMC suburban 2wd 1500, I was able to just remove the fan housing and unbolt the fan by the four bolts behind the blade, this gave me the room to remove bottom half of fan shroud.
Once lines disconnected from radiator, there is a retainer clip that holds the hose into the nut that is screwed into the oil filter housing. I doused the nuts with WD40, then removed the clip with a screw driver. BE CAREFUL not to let the clips get away from you because it would be a pain to replace. Autozone does not carry nut nor clip!!!!! The hoses are held together by a clip and attached to a bracket as you follow the line toward the front of the truck.
Once clips are removed, tug on each line individually away from the nut screwed into the oil filter housing and wahlaa. Remove the nut and clean all the old teflon tape off with a steel brush and WD40. I reinserted the clip back into the nut and with the new oil line in my hand, pressed the line into the nut with the clip in place. This way you can see how the nut and clip lock the hose in place. Enjoy and I hope this helps you out.
Oh.....use teflon tape on the radiator treads as well as the oil filter housing threads. Install starting at the radiator housing. Snug the bolt (1' 1/16" socket) with the retainer clip inserted.
