It is a one man job. Just remove the sprocket bolt, washer, sprocket and collar. Clean the area around the shaft and clean the shaft, then pry the old seal out any way you can. Put the new seal in straight (not at an angle). The seal should be flush with the case surface. Put some grease on the inner lips of the seal before mounting.

Top rating due on this answer! Thanks Hugh!

I snapped the final drive belt on my 2000 buell m2 cyclone and need any advice on replacing it my self

It's straight forward and simple. loosen the rear axle nuts - slide the rear wheel forward and remove any of the plastic covers in the way - the belt simply goes on over the old pullies and the rear axle gets pulled back to retension it.

My current Fasco exhust motor # 7021-10299 is making noise and is related to sealed bearing I would imagine. I beleive the replacement is the A170. What is the best way to approach this? Can just the...

There usually is no repair for bearing you need to replace the motor and fan as one.They are generally pretty straight forward on replacement.I would recommend that you use a good grade of silicone caulking on flange to ensure good seal. Hope this helps and thank you.

Gear oil is leaking from the seal in rear drive behind the wheel is this difficult to repar

While it is not difficult to replace the seal, this usually indicates that the main bearing in the final drive has failed and pushed out/damaged the seal causing the leak.

Put bike on center stand and hold rear wheel with both hands and 12 and 6 O'clock positions. Try to move wheel by pushing towards the side of the bike in each direction. If wheel moves more than 1-2mm then you need to have final drive repaired. You can also remove drain plug at the bottom of the final drive and see if any metal particles drain out with the oil. Use a small drain pan to catch the oil.

Sorry, but likely not an easy seal replacement to fix this problem.

Oil leaking from the back of primary case

There are several things behind the inner primary case that could be leaking. There is a seal behind the inner primary where the transmission mainshaft goes into the primary. This seal sometimes starts to leak. Also, there are seals in the transmission in that area. The final drive gear seal is the big seal right behind the front final drive belt pulley. Somethimes this pulley wears on the splines of the final drive gear and it loses tension on the "quad seal" on the final drive gearshaft.

You'll nee some special tools to get to this area. You'll need sockets to fit the compensator sprocket nut and the clucth nut. You'll need an airwrench, a primary locking bar, and a torque wrench that will pull 150-165 ft. lbs. torque in forward direction, 68-80 ft. lbs. LEFT-HANDED on the clutch nut, a primary locking bar, a final drive sprocket locking device, a mainshaft nut removal tool, and some seal pullers and installers. Good Luck.

Game freezes up during game


This is a very straight forward solution.
Your laser module is failing, and needs to be replaced.

You CAN send it to SONY to "repair" for $170 (and you have to wait 5 WEEKS!!), BUT they will only send you someone else's refurbished unit, so you WILL loose all your data.

With that said, we are able to repair any issues with thePS3 console (and any other console for that matter), in a quick and affordable manner. Currently our turn around time is 2 days or less.

Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have.

Leaking from pump, is it usually the o-ring or something else?

Replacing the entire pump for a broken / leaky seal is a bit overkill - kinda like being advised to replace an engine when its your oil filter seal leaking. sells a Polaris "Go Kit" consisting of the three primary o-rings/seals that need periodic replacement as they dry-out and crack, promoting leaks, during non-operating months. Its called the Go-Kit 71 (for about $15.00) plus shipping. Replacement is fairly straight-forward if you know how to disassemble the pump - not rocket science but definately engineering.

Peugeot 406 HDI 110hp 2001.Replacing injector seals.

I think the real problem you will run into is the process of taking the injectors out. I have a Volvo and removing the injectors and the fuel rail was seemingly straight forward, but the seals that are into the intake manifold hold the injectors on quite strongly. I thought I could just hand pull them out--which took some real strength.If you do attempt the job, try to find a tool to properly aid in moving the injectors off the manifold. Best of luck. C
