Chain keeps poppin off


These are the instructions for adjusting the chain. They are taken directly from the manual available at http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/razorama/e100e200e300manual.pdf

To adjust the chain:
1. Loosen the axle
2. Loosen the brake anchor (this is attached with the small bolt in the long slot on the left side of the rear fork)
3. Tighten the tension adjusters on the axle 1/8 to 1/4 turn to tension the chain. Tighten both adjusters the exact same amount to maintain the wheel alignment.
Note: this system of adjusters is common to motorcycles and BMX
bicycles so I your are not familiar with it, if you know anyone who is,
they would not have a problem adjusting it for you.
Chain tension: The chain should be "just not-quite snug" in other
words, not taut or sloppy loose. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHT. The tensioning system can easily impart too much tension and snap the chain or bend the motor output shaft. Turn the adjusters 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time and recheck the tension each time.
4. Once the tension is good, tighten the axle and brake anchor bolt. Test run the scooter. Readjust as needed.

Maytag neptune dryer belt off and loose


If belt is not broken, then the tensioner is not routed properly. Generally belt comes around drum, then around tensioner pulley then on motor pulley. Tensioner is spring loaded, so you need to pull up on tensioner to get belt around motor. Good luck.

How to change the belt


First, lay the saw on it's side with the blade facing up.
you should see an access panel at the base of the blade. Remove the screws and the panel. This should reveal two hat nuts and the chain drive sprocket. Loosen the two hat nuts, allowing you to slide the chain bar backwards and remove the old chain. Loop the new chain around the bar and drive sprocket, paying special attention to the direction of rotation of the chain. the cutting surface of the teeth should face the handle of the saw on the BOTTOM side of the blade. Pull forward on the bar and HAND-TIGHTEN the hat nuts. This will allow you to adjust the blade tension. Pull outward on the chain at the cnter of the bar. Slide the back and forth until you acheive about 1/4 inch gap between the chain and the bar. Once you are satisfied with the tension, tighten the hat nuts with a wrench and replace the cover and screws. Just pay close attention to the tension of the chain. Too loose and it will skip off, too tight and will bog down the motor and overheat.

Change blade


all chain saws have a sprocket that the chain runs on this sprocket is what make the chain rotate on the bar. the bar is the long part that sticks out in front of the motor. you must remove the side cover of the saw to access the sprocket region of the saw. be sure the saw is unplugged and then remove side cover the bar is usually held in place by a couple of bolts. on gas saws these two bolts also hold the side cover in place and must be removed to replace the bar and chain. once you have removed the side cover look for bolts holding the bar in place. if you only want to change the chain then you may be able to only loosen the bolts or screws holding the bar in place.there should be a screw to adjust the bar forwards and backwards. this screw put tension on the chain so when you put a new chain on turning the screw will proberly tension the chain /do not overtighten the chain.
also be sure you put the new chain and blade on the same as the old one that comes off trying to cut with a chain that is on backward does not work. last note if you are replacing the blade because the old one is dull take the saw to a saw shop they can sharpen the exsisting chain and save you money.

I cannot find my manual to my 18v cordless chainsaw ccs818. I need directions for putting the chain back on. I would like to download a copy of the manual.


Your manual can be found here:

http://www.blackanddecker.com/Manuals.aspx with pop-ups enabled then enter your model number
or
http://www.dewaltservicenet.com/documents/English/Instruction%20Manual/90560838,CCS818.pdf

See the instructions for replacing the chain on page 11. It makes reference to the figures on page 6 so that you know exactly what to remove.

Basically... loosen the bar allen screws. Remove the sprocket cover. Loosen the bar retaining bolts. Use a flat bladed screwdriver on the bar / chain tension screw to shorten the bar enough to install the chain. Then adjust the chain tensioner so that there is just a little slack in the chain at the bottom of bar between the drive sprocket and the bar. Tighten the bar retaining bolts install the cover / tighten all cover fasteners. (see details D and E page 6 of the 2nd link above.)

The steps below are copied from the manual.... I can not undo the formatting and can not post the figures here due to size restrictions..

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Replacing the Saw Chain

CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

not running.

WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

could result in serious personal injury.

• Place the saw on a firm surface. Rotate the two allen head screws

(11) counterclockwise with the wrench (13) provided as shown in

figure E.

• To remove the saw chain (9), rotate the tension adjustment screw

(23) in the front of the housing using the flat screwdriver end of the

wrench (13) as shown in figure F. Turning the screw

counterclockwise allows the guide bar to recede and reduces the

tension on the chain so that it may be removed.

• Remove sprocket cover (10) and allen head screws (11).

• Lift the worn saw chain (9) out of the groove in the guide bar (8).

• Place new chain in groove of guide bar making sure saw teeth are

facing correct direction by matching arrow on chain with graphic on

housing shown in figure G.

• Place the saw chain and guide bar assembly around the sprocket

(19). Check to make sure that the slot (20) in the guide bar (8) is

over the two location pins (21) shown in figure E and that the hole

below the slot is located over the adjustment pin (22).

• Replace sprocket cover (10) and thread allen head screws (11) in

with wrench until snug, then back wrench off one full turn.

• Pull bar nose up and keep it up as you adjust tension.

• Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

clockwise to increase the chain tension as in Figure F.

Follow instructions in "Adjusting Chain Tension" section.

• While still holding the bar nose up, securely tighten the rear allen

screw (11) first, then tighten the front allen screw.

• When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain

stretches slightly.

Adjusting Chain Tension

CAUTION: Sharp chain. Always wear protective gloves when

handling the chain. The chain is sharp and can cut you when it is

not running.

WARNING: Sharp moving chain. To prevent accidental

operation, insure that battery is disconnected from the tool

before performing the following operations. Failure to do this

could result in serious personal injury.

• With the saw still on a firm surface check the chain tension. The
tension is correct when the chain snaps back after being pulled

1/8 inch (3mm) away from the guide bar (8) with light force from the

middle finger and thumb as shown in figure H. There should be no

"sag" between the guide bar and the chain on the underside as

shown in figure I.

• To adjust saw chain tension, loosen the allen head screws (11).

• Rotate the tension adjustment screw (23) in the front of the housing

using the flat screwdriver end of the wrench (13) as shown in

figure F.

• Do not over-tension the chain as this will lead to excessive wear

and will reduce the life of the bar and chain. Overtensioning also

reduces the amount of cuts you will get per battery charge.

• Once chain tension is correct, tighten allen head screws (11).

• When the chain is new check the tension frequently (after

disconnecting battery) during the first 2 hours of use as a new chain
stretches slightly.

POULAN CHAIN SAW MODEL 1420 ''Chain came off track


Chain is probably stretched. SAFETY FIRST. Electric saw, make sure power is unplugged. Gas saw, make sure sparkplug wire is removed. Remove the cover where the bar is attached to the saw. U should see an adjustment screw for chain tension and one or more bar lockdown screws. Loosen the lockdown screws and turn the tension adjustment screw to permit the bar to slide back toward the motor. Put the chain back in the bar track all the way around. Adjust the tension screw to tighten chain enough you can't pull it out of the track at any spot. Slide the chain by hand at least one complete revolution feeling for any rough spots. If it moves freely, turn the tension screw enough to tighten the chain properly. Correct tension should allow you to pull the chain appx. 1/16 to 1/8 inch from the bar. Tighten the lockdown screws, replace the cover. Rotate chain by hand a couple of revolutions again to check for smoothness again before starting the saw.

Water pump 1995 nissian maxima


First you need to take off all the belts, then remove the a/c line to axcess to the 8 mms bolts holding the upper and lower timing belt covers. To facilitate the job you will need to remove lower crankshaft pulley.
This is a delicate job, since you have to access to the cam belt, I suggest buying the haynes manual for your car and following the step by step illustrated procedure, before starting the job.
