SOURCE: I need to replace the connecting rod,cylinder

Your compressor is made by Porter Cable. You can use sears parts or takes your old parts to a local Dewalt service center and they will match them up with replacements. You can save some money on the bearing by using a generic. Universal bearing number will be found on the dust shield. Most likely the sears part numbers will be the same as porter cable. Dewalt service center will help you with other questions and or instructions. Good Luck!

SOURCE: I have to replace the piston rod-to-motor shaft

Your unit was most likely made by Porter Cable and parts may be matched at your nearest Dewalt parts center. The best way to remove the bearing is to use a press, however the fast/dirty method is to use a Dremel with a thin cutting wheel to remove the bearing from the shaft. Remove the head of compressor being carefull not to tear gaskets. Loosen screw holding rod to bearing and remove rod (note position). Make two cuts on outer bearing shell and remove shell. Make one cut on inner race, then expand slightly with blade of screwdriver and remove. Use generic bearing 6203 available at auto parts. Clean shaft with fine sandpaper and install bearing to noted position. Probably a good time to replace cylinder and ring. Usually part Dewalt / Porter cable part #k-650 or use Sears part. After assembly turn several times by hand checking for alignent and free movement. Be carefull with the fan, easy to break. You probably should order a spare blade. Good luck with your repair and post again if you have questions.

SOURCE: How do i remove the crankshaft from the compressor

Should be 2 long bolts each side of the cylinder, remove them and lift the cylinder straight up gently until the piston is out of the cylinder then the rod/piston should slide forward off the crankshaft and lift right out. DO NOT over tighten the cylinder bolts when reassembling!

SOURCE: Can't get the flywheel off of a model

Tap the bolt of the puller while you tighten it, spay some penetrating oil on the shaft and leave it for a while and try again. If that is unsuccessful, apply a little heat to the flywheel and try the above again.

This video covers the installation and adjustment of the Eccentric Hub Assembly for the Stairmaster 4400PT/CL and 4600PT/CL Steppers.
The video begins with the Eccentric Hub Assembly removed from the unit. If you need help removing the Eccentric Hub Assembly from your stepper, please see our video about the Eccentric Hub Assembly Removal.
Tools Needed: Socket Wrench, 7/16" Socket, Adjustable Wrench or 7/16" Wrench
  • Begin by placing your HTD toothed belt around its pulleys. This allows you to set the proper belt tension before mounting the Eccentric Hub Assembly to the frame. The "egg" shape of the Eccentric Hub allows for adjustment of the belt tension. Rotate the hub counter clockwise to tension the belt. Proper belt tension allows about ¼" of play.
  • Line up the 4 bolts through the Eccentric Hub Assembly and the frame. Be sure to place the bolts facing the same direction as noted from removal of the old Eccentric Hub Assembly.
  • Once all the bolts are aligned, retighten them to the frame using the socket wrench with socket on one side and the other wrench on the opposite side.
  • Reinstall the poly-v alternator belt.
  • The Eccentric Hub Assembly installation and adjustment is now complete.

01' Mitsubishi Eclipse cv axle removal passenger side

The passenger side has a inner and outer shaft and you would remove the axle nut and shaft from spindle then the center bracket and bearing (two bolts against engine block), sliding out the axle assembling at that point, or jerking it out, careful not to pull on the cv axle end but rather the jack, or inner, shaft. After removal, separate the middle by hanging upside down and taking a hammer to it, striking the inner shaft while turning around. Dont hit the dust shield or seals. Install in reverse order. Quick tip: you may get around removing ball joint by only removing both strut bolts, and possibly tie rod end bolt.

How to replace rear axel wheel bearings on 97 ford explored

You will need an internal bearing puller. You will have to remove the rear axle by pulling off the differential cover. Then remove the bolt holding the spider gear cross shaft in place. Remove the shaft and spider gears. If your tire is already removed and brake drum is off, push in the axle and remove the circle clip. Once this is out you can slide your axle out you can remove the backing plate for your brakes and get to the bearing. Pull the seal out and pull out the bearing with a puller and slide hammer. Install the new bearing by hitting on the outside race ONLY. Install a new seal and install in reverse order.

How to replace bearings

Must disassemble the pump from the motor. The impeller has RH threads so hold motor armature (do not damage it) and turn impeller CCW to remove it from end of shaft. Hold armature in left hand and rotate impeller with right hand, turning hand on impeller back toward your body, or top of impeller toward you. Don't know how else to describe it. Once you have the impeller off everything should come apart pretty easily.
If impeller is really stuck, you will need to figure out how to hold it evenly all the way around without putting pressure on blades. Strap wrench, home made jig, something that can put more pressure on it than your hand.
You may want to remove the motor field so that you can grasp the armature while removing the impeller, do this by removing the long screws from the end of the motor.

Gently pry, tap, slide, however you can, get the bearings off the armature shaft without damaging any parts attached to it like fans, or starter centrifugal weights. Those things can be removed if needed.

Put new bearings on by sliding over shaft and seating in place by driving against the center race only. Do not drive bearing on by striking the outer race to move the inner race, this will damage the bearing.

Removing the Drum from an LG WM1832CW Front Load Washer

Well, I assume you have removed the bolt that holds the motor to the tub shaft. After you remove all the motor system then you would only have the tub's hub shaft out of the back of the outer tub thru the bearings and bearing seal. It should easily slide out. If not, I would support the outer tub half on two saw horses or equivalent and hit shaft as hard as you can with a rubber mallet. Remember to have a system to catch the inner tub when it falls out.

How to remove rear axcel shaft to replace seal

Please consider bearing replacement as typically some looseness there causes play and seal leakage...

You may have one of two designs.

Normal is a flange plate with 4 screws., release this plate and you can see the bearing (barely) and the axle pulls out, sometimes with a slide hammer, because of rust and debris buildup..

The 2nd type is a c-lock. to release this type, you open up the rear inspection plate, at the center. Catch the fluid. and replace the gasket, usually. Inside the CARRIER are 4 spyder gears. two of these gears are on a common idler shaft. You take out a bolt that retains this idler shaft, and remove it. Then you can PUSH the axle inwards, and reveal the c-clip. it is the idler shaft that keeps the axles outward and the c-clips in their place.
This design often requires axle replacement as it is one of the bearing surfaces that fails...inspece carefully for bearing damage.

Metabo sr358 plate removal

Are you removing the plate from the top (4screws) or trying from the bottom. It appears that the eccentric is a loose press fit. I am looking at a breakdown but it is not really all that clear. I would suggest going to and under downloads type in your model number which is 600358-42, the 6 is already in place so what I did is add a 1 to the end of it and found the tool. Let me know but did you also check the clamps for the reason. Usually the platen is sold as an assembly.
