There are specialist Mac repairers that can supply parts on the net. You should be able to find one reasonably local to you who will be able to supply you with a replacement as these items can't be reliably repaired.

Will a 3/8 in drive breaker bar take off a car lug nut?


If the lug nuts are as tight as you say I don't think a 3/8 drive will work. I even ruined a half inch drive by putting a pipe on it. Sears did replace it because it was Craftsman make. Are you near a Canadian Tire store as they usually have Master craft make which is life time guarantee as well.

I have a Square D Main Breaker Q2M-2150-MT that main lugs for incoming power has corrosion. I was able to remove 2 of 3 lugs, clean and apply nolox. 3rd. lug I cannot get loose. I tried PB Blaster and...


Put cheater bar on lug tool.
Maybe that's bit crude for delicate circuit breaker, so you should place lug tool correctly and brace breaker against box using carefully cut wood blocks and boards.

Real concern is that rust indicates condensation, which indicates high heat and maybe undersized breaker and wire. Or bad breaker.

Power mac g5 shows terrible damage in tower from leaking they swear mom board is fine but its hard to believe. are any of the other parts usable for a g3 to g5 imac or g4 powermac or emac


None of the parts are usable in any other machine.
The coolant from a liquid-cooled G5 PowerMac is toxic. If your G5 is leaking, disconnect the power cord IMMEDIATELY. Flush any skin exposed to the fluid with water for at least 15 minutes.
If you want to glove up and extract your hard drive from the machine so as to save your data, do it carefully. Other than that, my recommendation is to bag up the unit and handle it responsibly as toxic waste, using the same guidelines your area uses for antifreeze.

PowerMac G5 Mac Desktop: It will not boot...


Is this a liquid cooled G5? What CPU is it? Need as much info as possible like what where you doing last time it turned on? Have you looked inside the case? Do you hear any clicking when the power cable is connected for the first time? A lot of the last G5's were liquid cooled and a lot have leaked in the past. This small leak eventually ruins the power supply and worse yet ruins the logicboard and CPUs. If you don't know if it is liquid cooled look for a warning stamp on the bottom near front by the CPU fans (inside the case). It states to shut off if liquid is viable (something to that effect). Most times the liquid cannot be seen as it drips into the power supply on the very bottom. I would take it to Apple and have them check it out.

Why does my desktop pro keeps shutting down unexpectedly


Just to clarify a G5 is not a Pro or "desktop Pro" (Mac Pro is an Intel based machine). Yours is a "Power Mac". Install a temp monitoring app to see the temperature (mainly the CPU temps). Mine runs around 50 to 60 Celsius and never more than 72. If the temps run to high she will shut down. G5 are great machines but it's not rare for them to go bad. Power supply issues and liquid coolant leaks are well know. Fans controllers have stopped working (the fans them selves are usually OK).

Overheating


Is this the diesel model ? or petrol power? Never lug your diesel engine it will overheat even a new engine. Check your coolant level when engine is cooled down it may need burped. Why the head gasket change? did the head get checked for cracks and surface flatness, could be still leaking combustion pressure gases into the coolant have a test for this

ATI X800 XT Mac Edition and Mac G5 boot troubleshooting


I have the same card and many of the same issues.  I got an RMA number and had to contact ATI after "Clear Business Days" to get a status report.  Having finally gotten a response, I find out that it will be 10 to 12 WEEKS before the card comes back.
Knowing what I know now, I would not purchase this card again.
