I have a Hoover Tumble dryer Model D6104 The original bolt that holds drum in was sheared through.

I replaced it but the drum only turned for a small time then tightened up. I suspect may be reverse thread. . how can I fix it?

SOURCE: bolts on caliper stuck

Anti seize compound is probably nut used so it will take some force to break them loose. DO NOT USE HEAT for that will weaken the harden steels strength. Use the tool that fits on to these bolts and firmly swat them very hard with a dead blow hammer. The shock from the force will break apart the rust inside

SOURCE: bolts have sheared off on the steering box. How to

This pickup must have been in a dramatic wreck! Jack up the driver's side-front and remove the wheel and inner fender panel so that you can directly access the area. Clamp the steering box to the frame and do the drill/remove process. The old bolt ends may just screw on through when you start to drill (good luck). Use grade #5 or better new bolts.

This lifts steer axel mounting bolts constantly are sheering off is there a true fix to this issue

I haven't the faintest idea what you are referring to so obviously I can't picture the problem.

The big question is, are the bolts snapping because of excess tension or being cut through by too much shear force?

A careful examination of the broken bolts should provide the answer.

Generally the amount of shear force a bolt can withstand is minimal so in any assembly where shear forces are a problem, the designer will specify the size, type and number of bolts to provide sufficient clamping force so the friction between the two components is so high the bolts aren't subjected to a shear force, only to tension. In this case if the bolts shear it will be because of poor design, because the mating surfaces are no longer flat enough to provide the friction to keep them stable or because the clamping force is insufficient due to incorrect bolts being used or insufficient tightening of the bolts.

In any high stress design the designer might specify extra-high tensile bolts, or bolts of a special diameter shank so the bolts also act as interference dowels when assembled so fitting the wrong bolts can be a big problem. Using setscrews instead of bolts is doomed to failure from the start with a high-stess design.
If there is any heat around sometimes bolts can expand lengthwise more than the material they are clamping and in that case the components might be dowelled in addition to bolts or hih expansion washers used under the bolt heads.

I suggest you begin by checking on the original specification and analysing how the joint is supposed to work, the forces it is subjected to and what goes wrong. Then the answer to your question will be clearer and easier to find.

Good luck!

Trying to replace old ignition cylinder with a new one but the old one doesnt have a key

The casing for the lock cylinder is not solid and it has to be 2 pieces in order to fit around the steering column. But the reason you can't see that it has two pieces is because they are held together by bolts that are designed to have their heads shear off after they are tight. You have to drill out the shear bolts or back them out with a hammer and chisel to turn them CCW.

What's your problem?we have just bought a second hand refurbished hoover tumble dryer sv13 but it has two vents and came with no hose and we dont know what to buy for it

This is the car and truck section - you may want to repost this in the dryer section.
Just as a guess, the vent in the back should be for exhaust, the vent in the side could be for fresh air.

Why isnt my rotor button turning

Possibly a sheared roll pin on the distributor or the gear is striped. Take the Distributor cap off with wires attached if there is room to move it out of the way. There should be a bolt at the bottom with a bracket, remove the bolt and bracket and remove the distributor, check the roll pin and gear to make srure there in proper condition. Both ends of the roll pin can be there but still sheared. Check also but hold the rotor button and turning the gear to make sure that the shaft is not broken. Gear is at the bottom.

There are 2 headless screws holding the ignition switch bracket to the steering column how do you remove them so you can remove the switch?

The heads of the screws are sheared off for obvious reasons(theft etc) you can drill them and use an easy out... When you replace the bolts be sure to use the correct ones and shear the heads off of them to ensure your cars security

I have a kenmore 80 series electric dryer. It gets

If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these: Belt Motor Door switch Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time. Click here for a belt installation diagram Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor: Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor. If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor. Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

One of the bolts holding the left rear tire on sheared off when I was rotating my tires.The parts are cheap but how do I replace the bolt?

Remove the tire, and the brake drum. With a suitable punch, and safety glasses on, drive the broken stud towards the center of the car. The stud will push away from you, thru the hub, and fall out. Get the new stud, and poke it thru the now existing hole on the hub. Place a flat washer over the stud, and thread a lug nut onto the stud, and tighten the lugnut until the stud is pulled all of the way into the hub. Remove the lug nut and the washer, and refite the drum and the wheel.
