Try a single paper hole punch or a leather punch might be easier to use but that will also depend on the size of hole you need
if i is just a case of not being able to sqeeze with your hands try a using a rubb

I have a miller 1995 bobcat 225G with a onan motor with a external fuel pump and out the back of the fuel pump is a whole that oil is coming out of what would be causing this to happen?

it could be a stop solenoid hole or a simple oil filler hole that the plug has fallen out of
contact an onan service center and ask the service person what would be missing

I included a link to the instructions, but they don't appear to be very helpful. I am pasting in some Amazon comments from someone else that shares you frustration with the device, he ultimately provides some info that you may find helpful:

This is by far, the worst designed Chinese contraption I've ever had the displeasure of owning. I needed one in a hurry, and realize when you buy "China" that you take your stress level into your own hands......BUT, I gave it a shot. The bolt holes are drilled off mark, leaving you to bend the item into shape as you go......and the most important aspect, that is the tape roller assemblies, are so far from a proper design spec that it's nearly useless. I had to literally refabricate the assembly to get the tape to roll off evenly (by shimming the bushing AND the shaft, which is also improperly designed).....SO sloppy it's a joke, but I wasn't laughing.....the plastic tape roller mounting hole is SO over-sized that it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to get a straight and smooth distribution of your tape. FINALLY, after nearly 2 hours of tinkering, it worked "OK"....for just a LITTLE MORE QUALITY CONTROL, they could have avoided the design fiasco.........Parts were also missing (second tension spring, and 2 roller clamps).......TERRIBLE quality..........Brother, do I miss USA made goods. I'm a 45 year body and paint man......I believe I know 'what of' I speak.............This thing is CHEAP as a purchase price goes, but you'd better be ready for an elevated frustration level based on it's overall POOR quality. Period. If you're looking for ANY kind of precision in your tape rolling, FORGET IT.

Changed polarity on mig isito 220bz

most likely you have welded the wire to the electrode tip

unscrew the electrode tip, (copper piece the wire comes out of) pull wire out, (may need to try to feed wire with trigger at this time or pull hard with pliers)

replace tip or gently file and/or grind leading end of tip until wire is free and hole is clear


Thank You,

Forney model cb serial 145669 can't read front of welder.10 holes unmarked above low med hi

Here is picture of my Model CB. Based on the serial number it is slightly newer, but it should be close enough. Mine also came with a battery charger, which why it has the extra hole.11_22_2012_4_51_47_pm.jpg

How to load the wire , l have never used one before

On most welders the spool is set up so the wire is pulled from the bottom, goes into a small hole then through the feed wheels and another small hole. There is a lever that you flip to separate the wheels which allows you to feed the wire and once you get the wire started through both holes lock the feed wheels in place and adjust tension so that the wire will slip if it hits something hard (test on a piece of wood).

I have a Lincoln 175+ and when you puch the trigger the wire only comes out about a 1/4 inch at a time, and the feeder wheel only turns that much also. What can I do to fix it?

Make sure that your feed wheel is the correct gruve for the wire size you are using, also loosen up on the tention wing nut to where it just has enough tention to feed the wire without making groves on the sides of it. The gruves cause a mis-shaped wire to try to go thru a round hole. (Quare peg in a round hole if you will)

The wire is hanging in the torch head.

Is it possible an arc pit has made the wire hole there too irregular and the wire hits the oblong hole now and will not feed? Is there a .028 wire that may be made for your machine?

Sounds like the trigger assy is not intacked like it should be.

A piece of the old wire may have been bent and cause to feed to this area where it broke off I look at it like this;

If I force anything on into the area and free up a stoppage I may be back in business, On the other hand If I force it and break something else at the trigger assy I'm no worse off than I am at this point. And I will have gained in experience either way.

See if you can remove the trigger assy and make sure its open and look for a way for it so have come loose and now the wire is not lighning up like before.
