My daisy 5501 has a problem by the clip the co2 adjuster is stripped any solutions

Is your bolt stripped or is the actual threaded part in the handle stripped. The bolt can be replaced from Daisy or in a pinch you can use a standard bolt to put pressure on the cylinder. If the threaded part in the handle is stripped that is a little more of an issue. If it is stripped I think you have to options:
1 Find a tap for the threads on the bolt and run it through the existing threads and see if you can get it cleaned out and working.
2 Next option would be to drill it out to the next thread size and re tap it and then use a new bolt to secure the cylinder.
I hope this helps.

Expand-It 40 volt locking collar T bolt stripped

Give these ones a try.. But NOTE; There is no need to tighten these up that tight.! There is no way that you should have to tighten them up enough to strip the thread.. its holding on an extension shaft together, its not having to hold the weight of a vehicle.

Have purchased a used hood to add to escort we bought w/o a hood.

I believe all escorts have metric threads, so your 5/16"-18 would strip the holes or bolts or nuts. Could you find another escort and "borrow" a bolt out of it long enough to identify it so you could buy some? If "push came to shove", you drill the holes a little bigger, and then just use nuts and bolts there instead of threading the holes.
God bless your efforts.

How do I replace my inner axle on the passenger side of my 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4 4.7L. I lent my truck out and the C clip let go of the CV axle. The intermediate axle spline is stripped and I need to change...

Lift and support front end on suitable jack stands preferably on frame. Remove right front cv axle, stub shaft, and seal. You will need to pull the right front brake caliper assembly loose and place to the side. Then remove bolts from shock and upper control arm and hub nut to do this. Next, remove axle lock actuator on passenger side of front axle. Place a drain pan underneath front diff cover and remove cover and drain axle. In the center of differential there will be an 8 mm head bolt holding spider gear cross-shaft. Remove bolt and cross-shaft only! Push inner axle in until clip clears inside of passenger spider gear. Set clip aside and push/pull axle shaft straight out to passenger side.

Need to know how to change blades on 42in zoom z turn

To make it easy for repair, jack up lawn mower from the front, use jack stands to support the front frame, if you have a engine puller handy you can hook a chain to the front frame. There should be a 5/8 or 9/16 bolt or nut on lawnmower blade, need a impact driver to remove, do not remove with a wrench or hand tools or you risk of breaking the mandrels. Be sure to check the splines that hold the blade on place for ware and when installing them be sure you have a snug fit and hold the blade in the slot and insert nut or bolt back in place, if the blade is not in the slot you can strip the shaft and it will have to be replaced. It is good to put anti seize on the bolt or nut threads to make it easier to remove and install.

How to change crankshaft sensor jeep YJ

Raise the front of your Jeep with a jack and position a set of jack stands under the front axle to support it. Lower the jack, allowing the Jeep to rest solidly on the jack stands.

  • 2 Locate the crank position sensor in the bell housing of the Jeep from under the driver's side. Locate and remove the two retaining bolts that secure the sensor to the bell housing, using a socket and ratchet.
  • 3 Follow the wire from the sensor to the connector on the engine. Release the lock on the connector and separate the sensor wiring harness from the engine wiring harness. Remove the sensor and harness from the Jeep and discard it.
  • 4 Position the new sensor on the bell housing and install the two retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket and ratchet until they are snug. Do not over-tighten these bolts or you will strip the threads out of the aluminum bell housing.
  • 5 Route the wiring harness from the sensor to the engine wiring harness and push the two connectors together until the locking tab snaps in place. Be sure to route the wiring harness away from sharp edges or heat sources.
  • 6 Raise the front of the Jeep off the jack stands with a jack then remove the stands from under the truck. Lower the jack and test the repair by starting the truck and verifying that it runs properly.

    Crankshaft pulley bolt worked its way out of end of crankshaft. Car still ran but no oil pressure. Is it possible that it was stripped when oil pump was replaced or is it more likely it was not torqued...

    Either or are possible. This should be done professionally but if u want to check the threads, Get the exact bolt size including thread size (specs should be on new part, get from OEM) Try hand threading it into the crank (GENTLY) use a ratchet to feel for a stripped thread. You can do the same with a tap from a tap & die set. If is well, use threadlock on the new hardware threads. DONT FORCE IT, IF IT'S NOT STRIPPED TOURQUE TO SPEC, IF IT'S STRIPPED IT'S STRIPPED. Good luck

    Your right axle-shaft (intermediate-shaft) appears to be the problem here. (The right axle-shaft has a bearing in it that gets bad periodcally).
    Remove the wheel cover.
    Open up the axle nut side with a flat-end screw driver.
    Loosen the front axle nut with the 32mm socket.
    Remove the front wheel.
    Jack up the car and support it on jack-stands.
    Remove the brake calipers and tie it up to the strut-spring.
    (Check your engine mount, transmission mount)
    Remove the cotter-pin from the tie-rod nut.
    Loosen and remove the tie-rod nut.
    Pry off the balljoints out of the steering-knuckle(watch-out for the black rubber boot on the tie-rod).
    Loosen and remove the strut bolts.
    Push out the strut from the steering-knuckle.
    Remove the bolts that's holding the bearing on the middle of the shaft-3pieces in all.
    Use a large pry-bar to pry off the axle-shaft from its immediate end, or transmission case and flange.
    Take out the axle-shaft.
    Plug off the axle-shaft hole with a rag to stop oil flow.
    Replace the axle shaft with a new one, and tighten the axle-shaft bolts bolts starting with the left bolt first, then the right bolt-second, and the upper bolt-third.
    Reverse removal of these steps for installation.
    When done: Add the required quantity of fluid/gear-oil to the gear-box to compensate for lost fluid/gear-oil.

    How do you remove the rear brake drum on a 2004 toyota corolla?

    Be sure your parking brake is off.

    Safely jack and support the rear corner of the vehicle and remove the tire/wheel from the car.

    The drum *should* slide right off.

    If you live in a northern area where rust is an issue, take two 12mm bolts and insert them into the two shallow threaded holes on the front of the drum.
    Turn them in equal amounts, using plenty of penetrating oil and patience, and the bolts will force the drum off the hub.

    Do not rush or skip the penetrating oil, or you will strip the holes out, they are not very stout!

    If you have aftermarket drums that do not have the threaded holes or the holes are stripped out, tap the facing area of the drum (where the wheel touches it) with a hammer using moderate pressure, and working in a circle around the face of the drum. This will loosen the rust and aid in removal. Check periodically for outward movement, if it goes a little bit but gets stuck, continue tapping with the hammer.
    It will take longer than the bolts, but will work with patience.
