Mccullugh MCC1840 18" chainsaw. Gas pouring out bottom of saw. How do I get to the gas tank?

The fuel tank is part of the rear handle support body.
The fuel line to the carburetor goes into the top of the tank.
You will also find a return line from the air purge primer bulb. More than likely, one of these lines has broken or cracked. Gain access to some of the lines be removing the recoil assembly.
1) Remove the Air Filter and Filter Cover
(which you have already done)
2) Remove the recoil assembly to gain access to the primer lines.

Fuel cap wont release on my clio 55 plate

i have found this on some cars where the fuel cap has to many plastic parts and they break and lock up, you will need to replace the cap if its jammimg up, to remove it use a pair of chanel lock pliers and grab it and turn, it may break apart but it no good if you cant remove it. this is a bad design mercedes benz also has gas cap problems and i install a new one and a week later same problem and these caps are from the dealer, anyway hope this helps.

My 2004 Yamaha V-Star Silverado 1100's fuel cap fell apart and now after spending a ton of money at the dealer for one it seems that tank is vapor locking after riding for a while. It will **** and...

Did you happen to get resolution on this? My gas cap on my 04 1100 classic just fell apart this weekend. It looks like there might be some screws that rattled out and now I'm concerned that I have parts loose in the tank. I didn't spend the $$$ on a new cap yet as I was looking for options. Just doesn't seem right for a cap to just fall apart.

What tool is used to take strollers apart

Generally strollers are a collection of aluminum rods fitted into plastic supports and locked in with aluminum rivets. Wheels are generally fitted to the axel with capped star locks but have some clip arrangement to remove wheels from the frame for packing down.
Rivets have to be drilled out and replaced with new ones. To flair off the new rivet properly you need a clinch tool & dolly but you can make a less pretty repair with a ball-peen hammer and punch. Capped star locks need to be prized off and will never hold as well again so best replaced. So you need to have some new rivets and capped star locks be for you attempt to dismantle a stroller.

Why is my wrf 450 petrol tank getting cracks in it

Plastic tank? If so, I suggest it is due to old age and/or the new 10% ethanol gasoline. I had a plastic funnel crack and fall apart on me that I'd had for years. I was pouring the new gas through it when it fell apart, maybe a co-incidence, but I think it was the gas.

Will luggage mounts from other airheads fit?

No pannier frames for the r65 are the only one that will fit. the rack fits to the frames. If you have the r65LS then you will need to make brackets to move the rack back so you can still open the seat.

2003 yamaha v-star 1100 gas cap assembly instructions. The screws fell out of my gas cap and the gas cap fell apart. I need to be sure that I have all the parts out of my gas tank. I need a gas cap...

You are probably not going to find assembly instructions. If you can't find all the parts or screws then get another cap. Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " and you can probably find one at a much lower cost than the dealer would give. By the way, forget any loose screws in the gas tank. The stuff can not get past the fuel valve and filter and are not going to hurt anything.

Please rate this answer. Thanks!

Door lock assembly broken, rod assembly fell apart

There is a cheap plastic retainer on the end of the rod that holds it to the handle. Get a Wheel color from a RC airplane hobby shop and use it to hold the rod on the handle. Works better than the original clip. You don't need to take the door apart for this, you can usually reach the rod after removing the interior latch handle.
