What is an rz5426 and where did the rod hit it

Posted on Apr 20, 2017

Testimonial: "rz5426 is the Husqvarna model number. The mower blade hit the rod."

  • Bill Boyd Apr 20, 2017

    so it is a lawn mower--probably a push type mower and the blades hit a metal rod
    now it will not start- probably sheared off the aluminium key in the flywheel( designed for the express purpose of saving the crankshaft from snapping) and the magnet for the coil is now in the wrong place
    add to the fact that the crankshaft may be also bent under the mower

Which way do I install a conrod in a hino wo4ct, there is a problem with the pistons seazing, I think that I have installed the conrods in reverse.

Connecting rods generally don't have right or wrong that will cause the piston to seize. Some are offset to decrease piston slap and IF the rods are directional and you installed them wrong they will hit something. IF you can't rotate the engine that could be the issue. It would turn up to a point and then stop but you should be able to turn it back the other way and it would stop at some point in that direction.
Pistons don't seize until you start the engine. Then it's a lack of lube, ring end gaps wrong or not enough piston to cylinder wall clearance.

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee, Im getting a rattle under the jeep. It sounds like metal hitting metal its not the exhaust for that is not hittig anything. it sounds like its to the rear. Someone said...

Your jeep has two upper and two lower control arms attached to the rear axle. They have rubber bushings where they bolt to the axle and to the body. If the bushings are badly deteriorated, you will get a metal to metal sound when hitting bumps. Have them all checked.

What is wrong if when you hit alot of bumps that are uneven the front end shakes so bad i have to almost come to a stop to stop it ?

This could be several different things. Check your balljoints, tie rod ends, or possibly your wheel bearings. Pretty much make sure that your front suspension is tight(without alot of play) and that any boots are not torn and that they are full of grease.

Door opening mechinisim disengaged

the metal rod was not reattached when someone worked on your door. pull the door panel off (partially) and check the handle, follow the rod. If there isn't a rod going to your handle, it should be obvious what is wrong.

I have a 1999 grand prix that needs the outer tie rod replaced I did the passanger side and went to do the driver side and it it stuck it will not un screw I got the bolt to release but the main tie rod...

you get a mini sledge hammer and hit the metal that its going into the metal stopper is called a wheel stop its made so you cant turn the wheels to far in one direction if you hit it on the side real hard it will fall out and not damage anything
