Need to clean gas tank

I removed the gas line from the spicket and some black **** came out of the spicket. Figured I need to drain and clean the tank. Spicket is higher than the bottom of the tank so I assume the tank is pressurized. I used my compressor to blow into the tank through the fill hole with some rags jamed in with the hose. Was tedious be seemed to work alright.

I still would prefer to remove the tank and turn it upside down to drain it and then wash it out with hot water and let it dry.

I have everything off the tank I can find and I still can't budge it to get it out of the frame.

How do I get the tank out to clean it, or should I just fill it with hot water while its in the bike and then blow the water out and let it dry that way.

Or you got a better idea?

Thanks, Jerr

Water promotes rust. Go to the paint store and get some varnish remover. Put a gallon in the tank and follow manufacturers directions.Don't get any remover on the outside of the tank!

Considering the age of the bike I would get a liquid tank liner.

Google kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to www.

I have a Ford New Holland 5610 S series tractor year model 1997 have taken it apart to put in new clutch. I have installed the clutch and pressure plate the problem is I can't get it all to bolt back...

The biggest problem here is the alignment of all the parts. Firstly the clutch plate spline and the spicket shaft bearing in the flywheel have to be perfectly aligned, many clutch kits now supply the correct alignment tool as part of the service. Then the spicket shaft has to go into the clutch plate and the spicket shaft bearing perfectly straight, if all parts are aligned, the two halves of the tractor should slide into place easily. If you did not get an alignment tool, you can make one up using a shaft that fits into the spicket shaft bearing and then build up the thickness to fit into the clutch spline with masking tape. Using this method you will have to check your assembly by eye to ensure perfect alignment.

How to drain71- 40 .where is drain need to replace hearer need to drain first. 50 gal

There is usually a spigot right at the base of the water heater. Thread a garden hose on the spigot and route the garden hose outside. Of course be sure to pull the power breaker first. After you are sure that the power is off, turn the spigot handle and let the water flow. Be sure that you turn the inlet valve off that is located on the top feed pipe. Be sure to turn the feed back on before you power up as this will ensure that the upper and lower calrods are covered before you power on.

The Technician was right. The part only comes as an assembly. See this link: (Item 10)

Detailed view:

The only thing I can recommend that you can do possibly save yourself some money is go to any local appliance repair shop an see if they are parting out a refrigerator. There is yet one other option and that is to call a local refrigerator recylcling place and see if you can obtain the fitting there.

Other than that the service person is going to order the NEW part thatis $55.74 + shipping from Sears.
The current available part number is: 4388152 and is called Nozzle Tube Kit.
This is the best I can do for you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Have a blanco torino pull out faucet and the flow has been reduced to almost nothing. before I pull it apart, any idea what the cause might be? I have undersink shut off valves and they are both open so...

I have found through experience that most of the time when water flow is reduced out of the spicket that the spicket screen is plugged up. Try to unscrew the spicket nozel tip and the screen should be inside of it. Look and see if there is something plugging it. If not vissible, clean the screen by running fluid through it backwards.

Leaks oil from small black box mounted to frame,has a hose going to the crank case and small spicket on box

This sounds like a collection box for collecting blowby gases and oil mist from the crankcase. The spigot must be so you can drain it ocassionally.

Water keeps running from drinking spicket.

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip.

when using the spicket you use less flow than your irrigation system so a delay in the pump coming on is normal...otherwise if you are having the same problem when the irrigation is running..a pressure switch adjustment may be necessary...please follow the manufacturer instructions for your pressure switch.

Under Counter Water Filter Leaking after Use Sometimes!

Got it! Your return line is clogged!

I have the same dispenser, and there are 3 tubes attached to it. One of them (black on mine) goes from the faucet to the drain pipe coming down from the sink. That line can get clogged over time with stuff coming out of your sink. You can probably disconnect that line at the drain pipe end and **** oput the connection and as much of the hose as you can get too., Reattach the line and you are done. Fire it up.

On my unit, we hear a dripping sound in the drain when the unit is charging. If you don't hear the dripping sound after using the unit, that line is probably clogged up!

See ya!
