I had an antique Knickerbocker double barrel and I took it to a gun smith and he made me a spring. Worked good when I sold it.

Engine wont turn over


You have asked a question which cannot be answered without a LOT more information. Like what do you mean, won't turn over? By hand? or by starter? And if starter, have you checked all electrical start systems? Have you TRIED turning it over by hand?? You should have done that FIRST before you ever tried to start it.

If you care about the condition of the engine after 12 years, you have a lot MORE work to do than worry about whether it will crank over. I had the same situation last year with a car that had sat for 10 years, and I worked on it about 2 weeks (off and on) before I ever hit the starter. (Hint: you do NOT want to suck in 12-year old gas and 12-year old oil. Another hint, pull all the plugs and squirt light oil - Marvel Mystery Oil, drain ALL the gas, oil and coolant and replace.) Oh, and by the way, when I finally hit the starter, it fired right up. Now get to work and check back in 2 weeks.

How to remove door bushings


The only door bushings I am aware of are the ones on the hinge pins. Correct? If not, please clarify what you mean.
New pins come with new bushings, and the hinges are welded on so the pins are pretty much the only items replaceable. Not a fun job - because of the door stop springs you will need a spring compressor, and you will also need a special tool to drive out the old pins. However, both are available from a parts store or Amazon.
Just open the door and support it from the bottom, and then go for it, one pin at a time - for the upper pin, compress and remove the small spring, drive out the old pin, drive in the new pin and put the spring back. No spring on the bottom hinge - just replace the pin.

Gas gauge on 1999 Chevy Lumina does not work.


there is an insert inside your fuel tank which has a fuel gauge sender unit and a fuel pump mounted on it. as your car is now 12 years old, you may want to consider dropping the tank and replacing both units at once. while the tank is out of the car it will be easy to replace the inline fuel filter which is hanging above and just forward of it. so i think your sender is bad, but you should replace all three parts to save duplicating the labor next year when the pump fails. do not be surprised to find out the fuel lines are corroded and the shop recommend replacing them too.

Both the fuel gauge and temp gauge indicators are stuck below the pin


thats a fun one, you need to crack open the cluster and reset them, if the springs in the gauges are broken replace the cluster.

CAUTION
Brake shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid. NOTE: A brake spring removal tool and a brake adjusting gauge are required for this procedure.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely with jackstands.
  2. If the brakes have never been serviced before, the drums will be held on the wheel studs with spring nuts. Remove the spring nuts and discard.
  3. Turn the adjustment starwheel so that the brake shoes are retracted from the brake drum and remove the brake drum.
  4. Install wheel cylinder clamps to retain the wheel cylinder pistons in place and prevent leakage of brake fluid while replacing the shoes.
  5. Remove the U-clip and washer securing the adjuster cable to the parking brake lever.
  6. Remove the adjuster cable, cable guide, adjuster lever and adjuster springs. Remove the return springs with a brake spring remover tool.
  7. Remove the hold-down retainers and springs, then remove the brake shoes. To install:
  8. Clean the backing plate with a brush or cloth. Place a dab of Lubriplate® on each spot where the brake shoes rub on the backing plate. NOTE: Always replace brake linings in axle sets. Never replace linings on one side or just on one wheel.
  9. Thoroughly clean and lubricate the adjuster cable guides, adjuster screw and pivot, parking brake lever and lever pivot pin with multi-purpose grease.
  10. Apply a thin coat of multi-purpose chassis lube to the mounting pads on the backing plate.
  11. Transfer the parking brake actuating lever to the new secondary shoe.
  12. Position the brake shoes on the backing plate, then install the hold-down springs and retainers. Don't forget to engage the parking brake lever with the cable.
  13. Install the parking brake actuating bar and spring between the parking brake lever and primary shoe.
  14. Install the self-adjusting cable, cable guide and upper return springs.
  15. Thoroughly clean the starwheel and lightly lubricate the threads with lithium based grease.
  16. Install the starwheel.
  17. Install the self-adjusting cam and lower spring. A big pair of locking pliers is good for this job.
  18. Check the surface of the brake shoes for any grease that may have gotten on them. If dirty, lightly clean with a piece of sandpaper.
  19. Adjust the brakes, install the brake drum and wheel. Lower the vehicle and test drive.

I'm looking for the 2000 isuzu rodeo 3.2L v6 connecting rod bearings torque specs.


1. Check the connecting rod alignment If either the bend or the twist exceeds the specified limit,the connecting rod must be replaced. Bend per 100 mm (3.937 inch) Limit: 0.15 (0.0059) Twist per 100 mm (3.937 inch) Limit: 0.20 (0.0078)

2. Measure the connecting rod thrust clearance. Use a feeler gauge to measure the thrust clearance at the large end of the connecting rod If the clearance exceeds the specified limit, the connecting rod must be replaced. Standard: 0.16 mm - 0.35 mm (0.0063 inch - 0.0138 inch) Limit: 0.40 mm (0.0157 inch)

3. Measure the oil clearance between the connecting rod and the crankshaft.

    1. Remove the connecting rod cap nuts and the rod caps (12). Arrange the removed rod caps in the cylinder number order.
    2. Clean the rod bearings and the crankshaft pins.
      1. Carefully check the rod bearings. If even one bearing is found to be damaged or badly worn, the entire bearing assembly must be replaced as a set. Reinstall the bearings in their original positions. Apply plastigage to the crank pin.
      2. Reinstall the rod caps (12) to their original positions. Tighten the rod cap nuts. Torque: 54 Nm (40 ft. lbs.) Note: Do not allow the crankshaft to rotate.
      3. Remove the rod caps.
        1. Measure the width of the plastigage and determine the oil clearance. If the oil clearance exceeds the limit, replace the rod bearing as a set. Standard: 0.019 mm - 0.043 mm (0.0007 inch - 0.0017 inch) Limit: 0.08 mm (0.003 inch)
        2. Clean the plastigage from the bearings and the crankshaft pins.

2001 chrysler sebring sedan,autostick, Gauge lights are sparatic.Most of the time they don't work, but once in a while they come on for a little bit and then quickly go back off. The dimmer switch will dim...


The problem is in the instrument cluster. There is an inverter that switches 12 VDC to 100 VAC to power the fluorescent backlight of the gauges. The inverter is mounted on the back of the gauges, underneath the printed circuit board. You cannot buy this inverter (maybe ebay?), but if you get one from a used cluster, you can replace it.
