I finaly got the control arms seperated and have beat and beat on the lower ball joint and it wont budge. I've looked and dont see a keeper or snap ring so what could be holdin it


You need the forked seperator to remove the ball joint. You drive it in between the ball and the outer casing of the control arm till it pops out. If you have an air hammer attatched to it, it goes alot faster. you can get the seperator at any parts store.

Tip

Ball-Type Single Lever Faucets


BALL-TYPE SINGLE-LEVER FAUCETS

  • The single-handle faucet with a ball inside to control both hot and cold water may either leak at the spigot or at the handle. A handle leak is usually caused by improper adjusting-ring tension. Simply adjust the tension to stop the leak. Leaks at the handle can also result from a worn cam gasket. Dripping from the spigot is usually caused by worn spring-loaded, soft rubber seat assemblies.

  • Parts for ball-type faucets are available in kits. Get the spring/seats kit for spigot leaks, or the complete kit for handle leaks. It may be advisable to use the complete kit to replace all working parts of the faucet at the same time. In any case, you'll need a kit containing the spanner/hex wrench for removing the handle (hex end) and turning the adjusting ring (spanner end).

  • Without turning the water off, loosen the handle set screw. Slide the handle from its stem.

  • For a handle leak, try using the spanner wrench to tighten the adjusting collar. Tighten it by turning the wrench and collar clockwise until the faucet doesn't leak when it is turned on and off. If the adjustment is too loose, the faucet will leak. If you turn it too tight, the handle will be hard to move. When the adjusting ring cannot be turned with the wrench, it is corroded. At this point, you will need to remove the cap to free the adjusting ring. (See next step.) You must turn the water off before removing the cap! Apply penetrating oil to the threads, remove the ring and clean all parts before reassembling.

  • Install the seats. For faucet leaks at the spigot, you must install new rubber seats and springs. You must turn off the water to make this repair. Unscrew the chrome cap by turning it counterclockwise. If it won't turn easily, wrap electrical tape around the cap and turn it with pliers. The adjusting ring, which is threaded into the cap's center, will come off with it. For a seats/springs replacement, pull the ball up and out by its stem. The gasketed cam will come with it. Now you can locate the two rubber seats and springs inside the faucet body. Remove them with pliers or yours fingers and install the new ones. The springs go into the holes first, and the cupped sides of the seats fit over the springs.

  • Service the ball. If the ball is dirty or coated with scale, clean it or replace it with a new one. Both plastic and brass balls are available, but use a plastic one if your home has hard water.

  • Reassembly. Put the ball and cam back into the faucet with the slot in the side if the ball fitting over the pin in the faucet body. Then make sure the tab on the cam slips down into the notch in the body. Not aligning the tab and notch is the number one cause for a faucet leaking after it is repaired. Finally, screw on the cap and adjust the ring as described in Step 2. If a properly adjusted ball-type faucet leaks at the cap, the cam and gasket must be replaced.

  • Swing spouts. If a single-lever ball faucet leaks at the base, you should replace the O-rings. Remove the spout-retaining parts, as well as the spout. Wrap the spout-retaining nut with electrical tape to protect it, and remove the nut with a wrench or pliers by turning counterclockwise. Remove the spout by pulling it up and side-to-side. One or more O-rings should now be exposed. Take the O-rings to your hardware or home center store to get matching O-rings for replacement. Clean any scale that appears on the spout base, faucet body, and the inside of the swinging spout. Install the new O-rings and reverse the steps above to reassemble the faucet.

MY Whirlpool AA1400 5145 I had remove bottom drain and there is some blocking then I don't know whow comes first the ball or the rubber. Regards, OA


Hi

I hope I understood your question properly.

When you take off the drum drain pipe, you have a plastic ball and plastic ring inside the cup shaped hose which fits on the bottom of the drum.

When putting it back on, first put the plastic ring inside the cup-shaped hose. Then put the plastic ball on top of it.

Secure the hose to the bottom of the drum with the metal clamp. Make sure it is on correctly and will not pull off.

Also make sure there are no kinks in the hose leading to your drain filter.

Start a quick cycle and monitor the machine to make sure there are no leaks.

Best Regards
Ash

1999 toyota camry. Can only pump fuel into tank


What it does have is a plastic checkball(almost like a ping pong ball ) in the tank which prevents back flow up the filler neck. If this hangs up,it will cause poor flow the right way fuel goes in the tank. I have poked around and got these to free up before. The last time I used a small peice of plastic tubing and successufully freed up the ball.Severe cases my require tank removal as there are some makes and models out there requiring a replacement fuel tank.

Hi, trying to replace an upper ball joint on a 2005 Dodge Stratus The ball joint is a press in but is there a snap ring..... holding it into the control arm? I can't get this thing to budge.


very often when working with press in ball joints you have to heat them up with a torch get them to around 750 degrees or more and then beat the snap ring out literly with a small chisel (punch).
