What cap did you try to fix
basically if there is a ball and spring ,then the ball goes in first to seal off on the seat and is regulated by the spring which goes in last.

Rebuild dw708

I assume you are asking about the Dewalt
DW708 TYPE 3 Crosscut Miter Sawas seen here

Have you taken it apart yet? You will need screwdrivers, spring clip pliers, small bearing puller and a pipe same diameter as the inside of the bearing; for replacement of bearing.
Be sure to take out the brushes before taking out the armature.
Part 165-90
You most likely will have to replace part 87 too.
The bearing rests in there and gets worn too.
Serious bearing/vibration problems causes the end cap part 84, to wear out.

I have a dodge 4x4 1500 the trans temp light comes as well as the over drive off light when vehicle is at an idle i then lose overdrive. vehicle is only at an idle for 2 or 3 min. havent even started to...

There is a check valve in the transmission cooling lines on these trucks. This valve is in the line near the radiator on the passenger side. This valve can get stuck and cause the Trans to overheat due to no trans cooler flow. When these Transmission get hot overdrive goes out. Located this valve take the line apart near it and use a small screwdriver and try to free it up. It is spring loaded and should push in and spring out easily. If you can't you must replace it. Don't drive it like that or you could ruin the transmission

1989 toyota camry 232000miles Runs rough at idle

YOUR problem is the carby acc pump and idle jet ...... what you need to do is remove airfilter and take the top off the carby and you should see a small ball and spring under gasket ...when you open the throttle it will pump petrol to the small pick up jet and the other jet will take over ...clean out carby jets and rebuild and that should be ok

Need diagram for rear brake spring assembly on a 1994 toyota tercel

The bottom spring should be hooked into a small hole on thefront shoe bottom, and to the adjuster cam on the other(rear) shoe. The remaing two spring are one long and one short. The shorter spring goes from the front shoe to the post and the longer spring goes from the rear shoe to the post. Just a suggestion, when you are dissasembling anything complex like this, it's a good idea to take a few digital pix along the way. Good luck my friend,Dana P.S. if you haven't taken the other side apart yet you can use it for a reference only mirror the assembly.
