000 miles just around the corner and the nights drawing in it is time to take the plunge and do the top end on my stroke 250 this autumn/winter. I've never attempted anything like this so if anyone has any tips or pitfalls to avoid please let me know.See my posts about about my recent seizure because a PV failed. I am pretty mechanically stupid. I never thought I'd do motor work or remove the motor. I was always amazed people on this forum did it. But I was able to remove the motor and it was pretty easy. Haven't totally disassembled it so I can't say piston replacement or bottom end taking apart is easy. But there's not much to it. Especially a top end where it's 5 nuts for the head and 4 for the cylinder. Take pictures write down things (everything you do if you want to to make sure you reverse everything) and keep some order for the parts you take off. I have put every bolt and nut I took off to disassemble something right back on so I don't end up with a big pile of bolts and nuts. Get an impact driver, a manual one is fine, to do any screw removal for the PVs. Don't even attempt to use a screwdriver or you'll mess up the screws.,,,

If water is backing up into the tub then you have clog downstream from that bathroom group. If water backs up when you ran water in the rest of the house then you have a clogged sewer service. With either case the house drain and / or sewer drain will need to be snaked. Most of the time it will be the sewer drain.

Can I add ram and a bigger hard drive

Yes-- though it is very involved and takes some significant expertise in such things. I would not recommend it for the novice.

Macworld has a guide that should help describe this to you in some detail, which should help you figure out if you really want to take the plunge and attempt it.

Its cutting off going down the road and taking 20 mins to 2 hours to crank temperture light flickers before it dies. I notice the manifold glow red hot Thanks Keith

Keith if manifold is red hot that tells me it is running very lean it is either got a plunged fuel filter /bad 02 censor or plunged cadlitic converter/possible bad temp censor you real need to start by reading the coeds /and/or have the car scanned /you can read your own coeds by grounding the ALDL connector if you know what that is if not you can take it to Auto Zone they read coeds for free then once you have the coed return hear with them and i or some one else will help you work through them to see the least expensive way to git it fixed.

Black display in nokia e 71..sugest me solution please

try taking you r battery out and your SIM CARD. Wait 15 seconds and power it back on. sometimes this is all it takes to shake a glitch.

If the same problem still occurs..Sorry time for a new phone?

If you did drop it it was probably damaged from its plunge to the concrete. :(

sorry hope the reset works for you!

I just received a 693 plunge router via internet order. As soon as i took out the plunge part out of the case and moved the lever it pupped up and now will not move up or down > Is there something I am...

The plunge base is spring loaded. When you move the lever is springs to the up position. To lower it place the base on a flat surface, press and hold the lever down and push down on the handles. The router bit height should be set on the depth rod with the base in the down position. Then release it to the up position. When you have positioned the bit where you want it on the work piece, press the lever and "plunge" the bit down into the workpiece. The depth rod setting will stop the bit at the depth you set it for.

Ryobi RE600 plunge router binds on the posts

Are you cleaning the area that contains the springs also and if so I would use something like a dry lubricant so that it won't attract more dust and dirt but we both know that eventually it will. Coat the posts with this and allow to dry and then push up and down on the motor to lube the bushings and you might have to do it again. You can also try a small amount of 3 in 1 oil but use sparingly.

The plunge lock "slips" when the router is used in a table

You can try to adjust the lever that moves the plunge and see if that helps, but a plunge router isn't made for upside use. If you have the option and use the router upside down often, you may want to get a fixed base.
