Salt is evil when it omes to unsealed concrete. Hose down the area and remove any remaining salt. Then go to a cement block/brick yard and speak with the clerk about your problem. There are several very excellent concrete patches that will do the repair. Finally, I would seal or reseal the entire concrete pad.

What to do if water pump bolt breaks,97 mercury mountaineer


You have to drill the remainder of the bolt out of the hole. Start by taking a center punch and punch the dead center of the piece stuck in the hole, then take a small drill bit and get to work on the punch hole. Use a little wd40 on the bit to keep it from overheating and go about half speed on the drill (time consuming prosses). After you drilled deep enough grab the next size bit and continue to do this until you can fit a good size extracter in the hole to pull it out. If you do not have an extracter then continue to drill untill the bolt is completly out then retap new treads and find an oversized bolt.

Tip

Drill out corroded pipe/studs


A backyard machine shop technique I used recently worked perfectly on a piece of brass pipe corroded into a cast iron steam radiator, but the procedure is labor intensive. Use a hand electric drill or a drill press to drill a small hole reasonably centered. Perfect centering is not desirable, as you shall see below. Then drill the hole out with progressively larger drills, shifting to 1/64th " increments in drill size as you approach the threads. If you have complete letter and fractional drill sets you can get less than 1/64th" increments for some steps. Clean the hole well and inspect carefully for signs of the threads showing up after each increment of drilling. Stop drilling as soon as you can see any sign of threads.

At this point, it's difficult to peck the remnant of the stud loose from the threads with a sharp punch because it still resists collapsing inward due to the full circles remaining in the threads. To make it collapse easier, use a triangular needle file to file two longitudinal grooves in the thicker side of the remnant until the thread barely shows at the bottom of each groove. The two grooves should be about 30 to 40 degrees apart on the thick side of the remnant.

Now use your sharp punch to knock the section between the two notches inward from the threads. The strength of the thicker metal left due to imperfect centering of the drilled hole is actually beneficial here because the piece will be strong enough to come loose as a single piece, rather than just the top thread breaking loose. Last time I did this (a week ago) I was able to grab the section knocked inward with needle nose pliers and pull the whole remnant out with a twist.

Depending upon your finesse, this can leave a thread essentially undamaged except for a small divot at the point you punched. Run a tap down the hole to clean out the corrosion and clean up any damage done. Strength of the threads should be unaffected unless you were really clumsy.

The front door handle lacks tension and the door won't open from the outside. However, the door will open from the inside.


I just bought a 96 transport with that same problem on both front doors they would open from the inside but not the outside. They have a design flaw, basically when you pull the handle it pushes a piece that pivots and in turn pushes a linkage rod downward that actuates the door latch, well that pivot point is the weak spot, the pin that it hinges on is too small and will break, (I found the pivot piece and the linkage rod laying in the bottom of the door)
If you pull the door panel off their are 2 nuts holding the door handle on, take those off and the door handle will come off, the pivot pin is on then inside of the door handle, what I did was to drill a hole and put a small self tapping screw in to replace the pivot pin, and hold the pivot piece and linkage in place then put it all back through the door handle hole in the door, and set the linkage down in it's hole in the door latch assembly. The screw I used was not exactly the same size as the original pin was so the pivot piece had some play in it and did not quite push the down far enough to unlatch the door so I put two small nuts to act as washers on the bottom of the linkage rod so it would push down a little more, now it works like a charm, on the other door the linkage rod had just come out of it's hole in the door latch assembly, all I had to do was pull the inside door handle, which lowered the door latch piece and guided the rod back into its hole as I released the inside door handle and now it works too, took about an hour for both doors, a fairly easy fix, hope this helps.

While washing heavy load (towels) spin cycle became very loud and sounded out of balance. After cycle finished, noticed several small pieces of white material. Washed a light-weight load next; same loud...


I had exactly the same problem, sound and everything. I just pulled the front off the washer and discovered that I half mooned shaped, big hunk of concrete was broken in half and hanging down rubbing who knows what. I'm sure it's just a weight to help make it stable while spinning. I don't know if the broken concrete is a result of another problem or not. I'm going to try to find a replacement and install it myself and see if it's fixed. I can just hope.

How do you fix fairrings on a truimph tt600


depending on the damage cracks are easy take a soldering iron to the back of the crack and plastic weld the seem back together small dots 3or4 mm apart should be fine then take a suitable piece of plastic to reienforce the break flexable enough to mould to the contour i find plastic egg catoon it great as you can heat it up with a hair drier to mould to correct shape then use plastic bumper filler to fix it to the back remember if you are not going to see this side just rub down a little and piant if you can see it ie in the **** pit then you will need to do the best you can , now for the front plastic weld small dots again fill and rub down until you can just see the dots not to far the filler may shirink after primming check the repair and refill and redo if you can see any shrinkage .if you are going to paint your self then best go to an automotive paint supplier and have them colour match the paint take a part with you . if you are repairing holes use a thicker piece of plastic on the back fix this into place useing the filler then fill the front hope this helps

Cant stop rust on rocker panels


If someone could solve this problem forever they would become instant millionaires!!! (it is an ongoing problem with just about every vehicle forever (road salt and pitting from stuff that gets kicked up by tires, does not care what kind of vehicle it is) I generally use a product called rust killer. Just follow instructions on container. I have a Jeep (noted for rust there) I use rust killer, then cover the entire rocker with fiberglass, then spray the entire thing with bedliner coating. (if you need to match paint on car, just re-spray over it with correct colour)
The biggest problem is that the rust you see is not all the rust that's there...it actually begins inside the panel where you can't get to ...that's why it bleeds rust stain through the paint before holes appear.
Good luck! Hope this helps you.

Trying to find hole below evaporator in freezer


The aluminum is the collection tray that the water drains down and goes down the tube to pan under fridge.

With all the ice you are talking about it will be hard to see. You might need to get a towel and mop up excess water as you go.

Get a shop vac if you have one and put the hose in the end that blows instead of vacuum's the warm air will aid in defrosting the ice out of coils. Other wise use a hair dryer. The drain is in center right below the coils. When you get to where you are closer to the as you say aluminum you will notice a small diameter hole say just smaller then a penny in size. Now get some table salt and put approx. 2 tea spoons on the top of hole. this will melt the ice much faster and clear out the drain tube in minutes. Then just clear out with some water and you can monitor the pan under the fridge to see how much water comes out. Hope this helps ken

How to Install Towel Bar?


Since towel bars are usually installed onto separate hardware that's mounted on the walls, use the actual hardware as a template to mark exactly where to drill your mounting holes. Hold a piece of mounting hardware against the masking tape and use your pencil to mark the actual spots to drill your holes. Use different-sized drill bits to drill for the two ends. The Molly bolt or wall anchor will require a much larger diameter hole than the screws going directly into the stud. (The size of the hole required for the wall fastener will be marked on the packaging.) Install the wall fastener into the wall, then mount the hardware onto the wall and place the ends of the towel bar over the hardware. Attach the towel bar to the mounting hardware using the screws included with the towel bar. These are commonly small-slotted screws located on the bottom of the end pieces of the towel bar.
