Take the air cleaner off and plug the hose with a balled up grocery plastic bag to keep water out. Wrap the carburetor with several layers of plastic too. Buy a small container of GUNK, and paint it on the engine, wheels, chain, and frame. Don't put it on the gas tank or seat. If the fabric on the seat is in poor condition, cover it with plastic too or you will have a wet **** for a week! This GUNK turns grease and oil into soap which then washes off with water spray to leave aluminum engine parts looking brand new. Buy a can of chain lube for the chain--plain oil flies off at speed and leaves an oil line up your back. The front fork seals can be taken care of any time. The rusty brakes will take care of themselves with use. After spraying it clean, dry it off and remove the plastic. Replace the air cleaner with new if it looks oily or is damaged. Take the machine for a ride to dry off those hidden places. Good luck!

1984 ford ford motorhome w/460 v/8,has sat for 3 ? years. well i got it running with a new fuel now i can't get it to has a "parking brake release"button,but it dosn't...

All those issues are really simple

You have to completely strip all four brakes
& go from scratch. They are nothing but rust

The parking brake cables most likely needed replacing
20 years ago,rust as well

The ignition switch was worn out decades ago also

The shift indicator is either a small cable behind the indicator
that may need to be replaced or adjusted

Before you can do much with the shift, you will as with everything
else,have to remove all mechanical shift linkage & remove all the
rust & possibly braze in the worn out linkage holes to get ride of play

You have a restoration project just to get it safe & road worthy

I thing you understand all this before you asked the question,
even if it never sat for years. Unless it was inside

I have a craftsman 16" 36cc chain saw. Engine

First thing is make sure chain brake is not engaged is so equipped. Next make sure that chain tensensioner is not to tight to allow chain to rotate. I wouuld remove bar and chain from saw and spray both several times with WD-40 and work chain link by link until they all move freely.Clean and lube guide channel on bar and make sure that bar is not dented or badly rusted.If all else fails replace bar and chain. Good luck and thank you.

Excessive rear-brake wear

What type of vehicle?

Parking Brake Cables rusted and not releasing

On rear discs,the same & or rusted caliper internal
parking ratchet mechanism

On drums the obvious,neglect and seized adjusters,etc,
corroded wheel cylinders ( People do not flush brakes every two years)

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but all four brakes
on all vehicles, have to come apart once a year or more often,
and you make love to them. Remove all rust ,inspect,lube,adjust,etc

No one should EVER have a brake problem in their entire life
ALL brake issues are NEGLECT and LACK OF KNOWLEDGE

1995 blazer should have rotors and brakes how often? We just had to replace the rotors at 125,00 + miles and about 6 months ago we had to replace brake lines, as they had rusted through.

not a bad life then that you have had from these parts ,the rust on pipes ?? should have painted them years ago ,the brake disks ,depends on how you drive ,if like an old grandad like myself --forever --if like a boy racer then maybe two years or as little as 20,000 miles
