Your Might Max has a 4G60 series engine, so I guess you want to get the 14mm nut off the oil pump belt pulley. On the lower side of the block there's a 17mm (or maybe 14mm, I forget) bolt. Remove this and you can poke a 10mm screwdriver into the hole. This locks the oil pump balance shaft. You will need to rotate the oil pump pulley to get the screwdriver all the way in. You should then be able to remove the 14mm head bolt(it's an M10 I think) on the pulley. It should not be excessively tight.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 Eclipse

because there are no cotter pins, they were most probab;y fitted and fixed with Loctite or similar.

Try applying a bit of heat to the nutwhile you have pressure on the nutm with your spanner.\

Another thing have you considered that they may have left hand thread.

How do I undo a stuck solid hydraulic pipe nut on a slave cylinder.

A 'C' spanner is the proper tool to get around the nut as much as possible whilst also clearing the pipe in the middle. Always take with the bleed nipples as they have a bad habit of just shearing off when a bit old and corroded. A normal spanner or a self gripping wrench risks rounding off the nut faces. Wire brush as much as you can around the nut and cylinder union to remove corrosion and dirt and apply releasing oil such as WD40. Let the oil work for about two hours. If you have the cylinder off the vehicle and you are intent on replacing the hyraulic pipe then cut it and fit a tight fitting socket on the nut. If the cylinder is still onthe vehicle and you want to keep the nut then a 'C' spanner is the safest bet. If you do use a self gripping wrench make sure that its jaws meet together squarely and that the teeth are still sharp and clean. When you apply the wrench you should clamp it on with the greatest pressure you can manage to avoid slippage. If the nut becomes rounded off then sacrifice the nut and pipe by removing the cylinder and using a grinder create new faces to opposed sides of the nut and use the self gripping wrench.

I'd like to replace the stock shifter knob (or

Usually there is a nut on the bottom of a shift knob that needs to be loosened, then the knob just screws off. Use a wrench, if it's hexagonal, if it's just round or there is no nut it may just screw off. It will be really tight though, be prepared to have to really crank on it to get it loose. The new one should just thread back on. You may need to install a nut on the bottom to adjust the rotation of any pattern or gear shift diagram on the new one.

I WAS TRYING TO REPLACE THE REAR TRAILING ARMS UNDER the strut i got the nut off but cannot even loosen the other bolt i used propane heat but no luck

Please no not use heat in that area - safety. If not impact wrench then
grind off just to the threads. This will releave most presure and can be removed. But do not damage the stud threads. Use a pipe extender cheater bar to help unscrew nut. Good luck

Gear shift removal from a 1968 f350  Can anyone tell me how to remove the selector stick from a production 4 speed box on a 1968 ford f350 truck

The ring that is on top of the post that sticks through the floor and the stick goes into will unscrew, then the stick just pulls out. Hopefully, a strap wrench will grip it tight enough to get it free--otherwise a pipe wrench will do the job, but mar the ring.

you will need some fairly long wrenchs 15mm-16mm to get leverage on the spring loaded serp tesiner put a wrench on the pulley near the belt ? also loosen the 4 fan bolts on the water pump before you remove the belt ? ther are 7 fan shroud bolts you can split the fan shroud ? 2 bolts on the lower right and 2 on the left ? after you do this then you should be down to pulling off the fan and pulley just slides off ? then remove the 4 waterpump mounting boltss, scrape the old gaskets ? when this is done all you have left is to installthe fan studs from the old pump? you do this by screwing down 2 nuts on the stud then with 2 wrenchs lock the nuts together ? then unscrew the bottom nut ? keep doing that till all 4 are replaced? install the gaskets and add some silicone and reverse the process ? hope this helps repost thumbs up !!

How to remove a strippped oil change nut on a 1997 Mazda Protege

use vice grips they lock on tight or a pipe wrench [plumbers] as the harder you pull the tighter they grip!
Remember its anti clockwise to undo the plug!
& somtimes its a good trick to tighten the nut just to break the toque seal! then it can be undone!
Cheers Rob

Cant get the crankshaft pulley off

It's most likely right hand thread. You will have to use a large breaker bar to get enought leverage to remove this nut. Or you can use what ever you have and place a steel pipe on the end of it for extra leverage. If it doesn't budge, you may have to soak it in penetrating oil, and use an impact wrench. Make sure you remove the large washer under the nut "before" you remove pulley.

Finding were a filter is

On these vehicles, the fuel filter is located on the fuel line to the carburetor. Special care should be taken when removing and installing the fuel filter, not to bend or distort the fuel line in any way.
  1. Remove gas cap to relieve any pressure that may be present in the fuel system.
  2. Remove the air cleaner bonnet assembly.
  3. Using a backup wrench on the return line fitting on the top of the fuel filter, remove the fuel line with a flare nut wrench.
  4. Using a backup wrench on the fuel filter inlet fitting, remove the fuel line from the fuel filter with a flare nut wrench.
  5. Using a backup wrench on the fuel filter outlet fitting, loosen the fuel line and remove the fuel filter from the engine with a flare nut wrench.
To Install:
  1. Apply a drop of engine oil to all the fuel line nuts and flared ends.
  2. Position the fuel filter with flow arrow on the filter directed towards the fuel line going to the carburetor.
  3. Finger-tighten the fittings at the fuel filter outlet, inlet and return line into the top of the filter.
  4. Using a backup wrench on the fuel filter fittings, tighten the fuel lines in the following sequence:
    1. Tighten the outlet and inlet line nuts to 15-18 ft. lbs. (20.0-24.0 Nm)
    2. Tighten the nut on the return line at the top of the filter to 6-9 ft. lbs. (15-18 Nm).
  5. Inspect the fuel lines and carefully adjust if they are interfering with the carburetor, air pump, or fuel filter housing.
  6. Start the engine and check for fuel leaks at all the connections. Retighten if necessary.
  7. If removed, install the air filter bonnet assembly.
