What is the best way to put the air box on? I tryed putting sleves on first with out box an heated them up but then cannot get air box housing to sit properly

Mount the air box first, then fit the pipe work and sleeves with out doing up any of the clamps until it is all fitted. If it is a after market kit you may have to modify some of the pipe work to get it to fit correctly. I would not be using heat to get the rubber sleeves to fit as this could distort and damage the sleeves. Get yourself some rubber grease and remember a little bit goes a long way.

The metal sleeve that fits over the frothing arm on our Breville Espresso machine, went down the disposal and got damaged. I can't find a replacement for it!

Here you go:
It's part number 156. Check it out on the diagrams they provide to verify. I have the same machine and am missing the exact same part, so I know exactly what you are talking about!

Boat motor while in water revs extremely high after about half throttle with no additional thrust

It sounds like the prop bushing is bad. There are 2 systems for preventing gear damage,shear pins and rubber prop bushings.

The rubber bushing can be molded to the prop or there is a type that has a sleeve the prop fits over. If the prop has no sleeve you need to take the prop off and have it relined. It will fail soon, its just a matter of time. If you have the removeable sleeve, you replace the sleeve and just slide the prop over it and you are done.

The diminished thrust is due to the rubber slipping from its bond and it will get looser and looser.

I have an RSVP stainless steel knock box and need to replace the rubber sleeve and grommets on the bar. Where can I buy these. The shop where I purchased the box does not stock them. Thanks Al

Hi Al:

Ok, here's what the pros do.
Sleeve-- get a 1-2 foot length of reinforced rubber tubing/hose. Measure the diameter of the inner bar, get the right Inside Diameter on the tubing, cut the right length and slip over the bar-- if the fit is tight, you may need a drop of dish soap to slide it. Lasts for years, much better than the old sleeve.

Grommets. Look at an auto supply store for auto wiring grommets. is a good place to start. Buy a dozen of 'em, and replace them when they split :-)

I need to replace the cord. There is a short near the housing.

hi may i suggest ? if you wish to renew the complete cord/wire? why not fit a longer length to facilitate more reach thro different rooms from the preferred wall socket ? the problem of short /breakage of wires within outer sleeve near casing is common on lots of vacs it is not a difficult job to replace if you are competant with wire and colour codes remove the access cover where wire enters vac then observe the attachment of each wire ? then disconnect faulty cable transfer the rubber tube that is normally fitted at entry point to vac at this point to new cable remove outer sleeve of new cable same length as old cable to reveal the inner wires then connect to vac sockets resecure cable to vac as previous dont forget the rubber tube? refit entry cover and fit a new 3 pin plug bs kite marked ? then away to vac the rooms? hope this helps

Bread machine (41088 model started thunking noise while kneading on it will not completely knead the dough. Do I need new bearings? Kneading bars or is there a belt in there to replace? ...

We thought it was the fan belt at first ... however, when my husband took the bread machine apart he found out the it was the motor-mount sleeve ..
In order to fix the problem, you will need to take the machine apart and get to the motor ..
When you get to the motor, you will take the 4 nuts off the bottom of the motor-mounts ..
Then slide the 4 plastic sleeves out of the motor mount rubber garments ...
Grind or file an 1/8 of an inch off of the narrow end of the plastic sleeves ..
Replace the sleeves back into the rubber mount garments ..
Replace the nuts and snug them up being careful not to overtighten them ..
While you are in this far .. it would be a good time to replace the plastic fiber fan belt .. the part number is P25-236 Breadmaker Belt and you can purchase it at
The belts are the same for several of the westbend 2lb machines .. this will fit 41080 thru 41088 ..
Ok, put the housing and everything back together and your done ..
If you mechanical and careful, this should take you about an hour to complete ..'
Warning ... do not attempt to simply tighten the nuts on the bolt mounts .. this will only result in damaging the motor-mount and will not fix the problem .. you have to grind or file the sleeves 1/8 inch shorter .. there is no other way to do it ..
Hope this helps ..

Milk not frothing

Remove the black plastic outer sleeve of the Frothing Wand (some models have a metal outer sleeve). If done correctly, the “sleeve” has been removed, but the inner wand with red or black washer, is still connected to the machine.
2) The part of the sleeve assembly that you have removed is comprised of 2 pieces, the frothing sleeve and the center piece. The center piece can be seen if you look into the top of the wand.
3) Using a pencil (eraser end), or similar shaped object, push down on the center piece until an audible “click” is heard. The “click” means that the centerpiece is back into the proper position. When in the proper position, the center piece visibly sticks out the bottom of the sleeve about ¼-inch. It looks like a bird beak.
4) Now put the sleeve back on the machine and your machine should be ready to froth again.

As for the milk island, translaltion from the italian solution using google and drying all the parts works
