Well, I wouldn't think they were supposed to break but then like everything else man-made, sometimes they do. When you replace them, make sure you don't have any "stress" on them. If they're in a bind, vibration will effect them worse. Now, I've got to go buy me a new set of handlebar risers. The chrome is flaking off mine and they were "Harley-Davidson" brand made in Tiawan.

Good Luck
Steve

Replaced bellow in kenmore washer still leaks


Is the plastic housing (Outer Tub) in good shape? If the old boot was ripped, It might be the spider is also broken. Can you move the inner tub by hand and see if it lifts upward? If so you might have to get a new one. I had the spider bracket in the rear of the inner tub break in 4 pieces and too expensive to weld. So I bought a new top loader.

1993 electra glide front faring removal


1993/1994 Outer Fairing and Windshield for FLHTC, and FLHTC ULTRA

Removal

First remove the headlight assembly and the bolts, nut and the washers attaching the outer fairing piece to the windshield and inner fairing piece. THEN loosen the four bolts attaching the light bracket and the outer fairing piece to the fork brackets. Remove the upper bolts but leave the lower ones in place. Cover the fender. THEN rest the lower light bracket onto the fender. THEN remove the fastener securing the headlamp trim ring and remove the trim ring. THEN remove five screws that secure then headlamp assembly to the outer fairing and remove the headlamp assembly. THEN reach through the headlamp opening and loosen four locknuts on the two studs on each side of the headlight area which attach the fairing to the metal brackets inside the fairing. THEN remove the fairing by pulling it straight ahead away from the brackets.

Installation

First loosely position the outer fairing in place over the inner faring with the four studs going into the two brackets. Then install the five windshield fasteners through the outer fairing, the windshield and the inner fairing. THEN tighten the four stud nuts to secure the fairing to the brackets, being sure to have the inner and the outer fairing properly aligned at their outside edges. THEN position the light bracket so that the slots fit around the upper fork bracket bolts and thenalign the lower fork bracket mounting holes and replace the two lowering fairing mounting bolts through the light bracket and the outer fairing and the inner fairing and screw them into the lower fork bracket. THEN make sure that the rubber seal around the inner fairing is properly seated and not pinched and tighten the four fairing attachment bolts to 12-13 foot pounds (16 -19 Nm). THEN tighten the windshield screws to 4 inch pounds (0.45 Nm) but no more than this amount starting in the middle and working outwards on both sides. THEN reinstall the headlight assembly.

Dodge caravan engine noise


It's hard to come up with a solution for this one without actually "feeling" the symptoms. I assume that what you're describing is that you can feel vibration coming from the engine. I suggest that you have the engine mounts checked.

Also, make sure the mount that sits just behind the radiator has rubber in the middle of it where the bolt goes through. On some models, the rubber mount is attached to the frame (which attaches to a bracket on the engine). On other models, the rubber part is attached to the engine (which attaches to a bracket on the frame).

I've seen cases where the mechanic had a bracket on the engine and another bracket on the frame. Instead of the mechanic removing one of the brackets and replacing it with the rubber mount, they would just align the two brackets together and run the bolt through them.

This causes the vibration to be transferred directly from the engine to the frame. This will also put stress on the exhaust pipe causing it to eventually break because the engine is not seated properly. The engine will be tilted slightly to the rear...

Remove and replace radio antenna


if power the inner plastic inner skirt will have to be removed to gain access to the mounting hardware for removal. you will need a high powered lamp to view all internal parts. the upper part of the mast will have a bracket with a very small screw on it. remove the lower hex nuts instead and leave the bracket mounted for you will have much difficulties to reinstall that one. the rest is easy to see if well lighted
