Auger wont disengage on snowblower. Replaced the belts so far

On mine the adjuster that tightens the belt was too tight. Mine has a type of bolt with a nut on it that holds a spring that sets the tightener and if you loosen it it should work.

How to adjust the seat on an indoor cycle

Video of How to Adjust the Seat on your Indoor Cycle

  • This video will demonstrate how to adjust the seat on your indoor cycle properly
  • Tools needed:
    • Adjustable Wrench
  • To begin loosen the nuts on each side of the seat equal turns
    • Ideally, there should be equal portions of the clamp bolt exposed on each side
  • Once you have them loose you can adjust the seat back and forth on the mounting rails as well as adjusting the angle of the set
    • The best position for the seat is level and in the center of the mounting rails adjustment
  • Once you have the seat positioned as desired finger tighten the nuts on each side of the seat equal turns and then tighten the nuts using a wrench an equal number of turns as well
    • Again, the goal is to have equal portions of the seat clamp bolt exposed on each side
  • This is all that is required to adjust the seat on your indoor cycle.

How to Remove and Replace the Bottom Bracket on an Indoor Cycling Bike

Following is a basic guideline of removing and replacing the bottom bracket on an indoor cycling bike. Due to the different brands of indoor cycling bikes and designs for bottom brackets, the following should only be used as a guideline. If any of the information is not exact to the bike being serviced, refer to the service manual or call Sportsmith for further help.
Common Tools Needed:
Phillips Screw Driver
Set of Allen Wrenches (standard and metric)
Bottom Bracket Tool
Cotterless Crank Puller Tool
9/16" Socket
Ratchet Wrench
Pedal Wrench
Crescent Wrench
You will begin by removing the outside belt/chain guard by using either or both the Phillips screw driver and Allen wrenches. It may be necessary to remove the drive side pedal (using the pedal wrench) in order to completely remove the outside belt/chain guard.
Once the belt/chain guard is removed, you will need to remove the belt/chain. If the unit is belt driven, you can simply "walk" the belt off the pulley by pushing the belt to the outside while turning the crank backwards. **CAUTION: PINCH POINT ** If the unit is chain driven, most use a continuous chain that can be "walked" off the sprocket just like the belt. **CAUTION: PINCH POINT ** Some chains may use a connecting link and can be separated at the connecting link to remove the chain. The connecting link is different in appearance from all other chain links.
Now it is time to remove the crank arms. How to Use a Cotterless Crank Puller Tool
It works best to place the bike upside down for best leverage to remove the bottom bracket. (If placing the bike upside down, ensure proper seat adjustment for best bike balance.) Begin removing the bottom bracket from the drive side of the bike. This side has a reverse thread. You will need to turn right to loosen and remove the bottom bracket. Place the teeth of the bottom bracket tool into the teeth of the bottom bracket cup. Using the ratchet wrench or crescent wrench to turn the bottom bracket tool, you will turn right to loosen and remove the bottom bracket. (If removal of the bottom bracket is difficult, it helps to use a crescent wrench in combination with a bolt threaded into the bottom bracket shaft to hold the tool in place while applying pressure to break the bottom bracket loose.) Remove the bottom bracket from the frame. Remove the bottom bracket cup and/or lock ring from the non-drive side of the bike. This is a standard thread. You will turn left to loosen and remove this bottom bracket cup and/or lock ring.
Install the new bottom bracket from the drive side and tighten flush to the frame. Install the bottom bracket cup and/or lock ring to the non-drive side and tighten.
Re-install the crank arms and pedals. Make sure the crank arm bolts are tightened to the proper torque. If unsure of proper torque specs, refer to the equipment service manual or call Sportsmith.
Re-install the belt/chain onto the pulley/sprocket. If belt/chain was "walked" off the pulley for removal, it can be "walked" onto the pulley/sprocket by placing the belt or chain along the bottom of the pulley/sprocket. Carefully, turn the crank arm forward while lifting on the belt/chain. **CAUTION: PINCH POINT ** Continuing turning the crank forward until the belt/chain is in place.
Re-install the outside chain guard and test the unit. Ride the bike without tension and test with tension. Ensure functionality and feel of the ride. Make any adjustments if necessary

If I let go of the handlebars the 2006 Kingpin leans right and of course turns right. I also have a highspeed side to side wobble but it is sporadic. That is side to side not front to back. I've checked...

Most likley your rear wheel is slightly off center. Loosen axle retainer nut and tighten left side adjuster no more than 15 degree's, tighten retainer nut to 65 ft/lbs and take for ride.

Do i remove the chain to attach and mount the bell motivator bike trainor?

No, you wouldn't get much resistance from the pedaling.

As you can see in the enlarged picture...

It clamps over the rear wheelquick release skewer and you snug the resistance unit against the tire.

My 1991 4x4 nissan pickup leans to one side the front passenger side it has new shocks what could be the problem

Shock don't have any thing to do with ride height. It should be a coil or leaf spring, or on some vehicles, a torsion bar, that keeps it level.
