Polaris snowmobile..chain broke. And the spike things broke. Bought a new chain case..i put it on and my track is locked up and wont move.. ne ideas please.. asap

Dear Danny,
Sorry about that.
Unfortunately, sometimes the obvious is not the problem.
You, or someone, must take apart the whole track and look inside, because I think the problem in internal.
Something broke or wore out inside, causing the chain to break and the sprocket gears to fail.
God bless your efforts.

Many people have had problems with their refrigerator compressors not starting and wonder what may be the problem. Many times the problem can be traced to the start components. The start relay and the start capacitor work together to help the compressor get started. By giving it a short extra shot of higher voltage current, it gives the compressor the kick to get it turning up to speed.

The capacitor is the long round tube on the top of the box that houses the compressor terminals and the start relay.


The start relay is pushed right onto the compressor terminals C and R. It also has two wires that go up to the start capacitor.


The relay can be removed by just pulling out on it away from the compressor off of the pins.


If your refrigerator compressor is not starting, you can change the start components easily, to see if they are the problem. Usually you will have about a 50-50 chance of the compressor working again by changing these parts.


If you are looking for the configuration of the compressor terminals, here is a picture of the terminal cover that shows which terminals are where.

Can changing from running shoes to running shoes with track spikes damage my legs or feet?

Changing from running in regular workout shoes to track spikes can cause Achilles tendon problems. Your Achilles tendon, sometimes called the calcaneal tendon, connects your calf muscles to your heel bone. A slow onset of pain that increases with exertion is likely to be tendonitis, whereas a sudden pain may be a partial or complete Achilles' tendon rupture. Achilles' tendons injuries are slow to heel and, in the case of ruptures, can even require surgery.

How to remove the track spikes on my running shoes?

Place the spike key over the top of the spike, ensuring that you secure it around the base. Hold the shoe firmly and slowly turn the key to the left to loosen and remove the spike. One you get the spike turning, it should come out easily.

Can I use my track spikes to train on hard surfaces such as cement?

It is not advised to use your track spikes on hard surfaces for a number of reasons, firstly it will ruin them, a hard surface will wear down the spikes, secondly the spikes do not support the foot so it could cause problems with the foot area also the spikes would not penetrate the surface which could make it very slippery - do not use your track spikes on a hard surface.

I have purchased two ARK IV white elliptical Stylus replacement needles for my turntable and I am not getting the life out of these items, despite very limited play time. Seems like they just wear down...

What's the turntable? Skipping across the record would be a (mal)function of tracking and anti-skating. The recommended tracking force for this stylus os 3.0 grams. I've been out of the vinyl groove for some years now but I remember my Shure M95 tracking in the range of 1-1.5 g. Railroad spikes track at 3.0. Is this for 'scratching' or whatever it is they call that noise?

Serpentine belt kicks off of track on a 2001 buick century

Sounds like it could be a bit loose? Is it tight enough? Could also be that it's time to change it as the spike type grips of the rubber are coming off and there's nothing to for the pullys to hold on to.

My new fostex mr8hd-cd 8-track recorder is unresponsive at times in the middle of a function...what could be the problem?

Is it plugged into a power socket with an anti-surge & anti spike adaptor to stop the small power variances. Try that and if it's not that go to the Fostex website and ask them just in case there is a small problem with your machine which is a very nice one indeed.
Good Luck.

Volume digital distorted spikes in adat-xt20

Check your operations manual on proper grounding of power and input cables. High gain circuits are very sensitive to ground loops and can produce phantom noises. Also, static charges on input cables can do this as well.
