Between the set screw and the bit. Use pliers to unscrew. U may need to hold the bit so it does not burn at the same time. Just like a drill :)

I want to know how to remove and replace door handles and the latch and springs from the latch in my 1940 Ford Deluxe 2 door sedan .The handles are bad and the springs do not hold the handle up , they

Wow! I'm an old car guy but mostly Chevys so I don't really know the answer. That being said, on most of the older cars there are several phillips head screws on the edge of the door that hold the latch in place. My experience has been these can be hard to remove. I have used an impact tool and hammer, but the most important part is to have a bit that fits perfectly. I made a tool using flat iron with a hole drilled into one end, put the bit in and welded it in place. That one works great and you don't risk damaging something with the hammer. Once you have removed the latch, you should be able to see the screws for the handle.

Drill bit does not stay gripped, chuckless drill

On this particular tool, you can't really tighten the bit in the anvil like a bit in a drill chuck. The bit is free floating but held in place by a small steel ball. The steel ball is held in place by the sleeve that slides up and down to release the ball so the bits can be changed. The sleeve is held down by a spring. Bits falling out can be caused by: Using bits without the groove in the bottom of them for the ball to catch in, dirt in the bottom of the anvil so the bit can't seat properly, the ball is missing or stuck, the spring is broke or binding, or the sleeve is bent or too dirty to slide up and down freely. Use compressed air to clean the anvil well and WD40 to clean and lube it further. If bits still fall out you'll have to take it apart and see if the ball, spring or sleeve need to be replaced.

1985 chevy blazer steering wheel removel

Remove the horn button, it should pop off unless you have the deluxe wheel in which case it is held on with 2 Philips screws on the back of the wheel. There is a large nut that has to come off as well as some bits and pieces for the horn. PAY close attention to how these pieces come apart or your horn won't work when you reassemble it. Attach the steering wheel puller and remove the wheel. It helps to give the bolt on the puller a rap with a hammer as you tighten it. Don't bother to try to do this without the puller... it don't work.

With the wheel out of the way, you will see a plate with grooves in the edge of it. This is the locking plate. There is a special tool to remove this but you probably won't be able to rent it. Try to borrow it if you can. If not, it can be removed without the tool. BE WARNED that THIS PLATE CAN HURT YOU as in break teeth or a nose. It is spring loaded with a very heavy spring. To remove it get a piece of boomstick or bar about 16 inch long. Enough so you can use your shoulder to push down on it and hold it while you pry the lock ring off the center shaft. Then ease the plate up until you feel it break contact with the spring. then remove it and the spring. Don't bother trying to put it back together without the spring. You'll just have to take it back apart and put the spring in. Hope this helps.

Just replaced the friction plates, the clutch spring hub does not seat onto the splines. What did i do wrong?

You don't stipulate your bikes model or year which makes this a bit harder.
When you fitted the outer hub(the one the springs sit in)- you've probably miss-aligned it.
Remove the springs again
Remove the hub- & re-fit over next set of posts(turn the outer hub so it dosn't go over the same posts as before) & it should slot all the way in.
If it dosn't-try again

It looks like the outer hub can fit over the spring posts in any position- but it can't.

I hope this works for you.

The primary door in a 2 door install has "locked

There's a good chance that if the motor runs and drive chain is not moving, the nylon gears inside the opener housing have stripped. This nearly always happens after one or both springs near the door tracks have broken. The spring provides the counter balance to the weight of the garage door - without them both, the full weight of the door is carried by the motor - which it is not designed to do. You can easily tell if the spring(s) have broken if the door is very heavy to open & close by hand - or is heavier and / or goes up & down unevenly. If you have broken springs, you'll need to reconnect / replace them before you can can expect the opener to work more than a handful of times before the gears strip again.

Pull the plug / power down the opener and set up a ladder under the opener. Remove the screws to gain access to the interior of the opener. If you see a bunch of white plastic / nylon "filings" that is exactly what happened. You can get / order the replacement parts at any Sears store or Sears Online. A kit is probably the best way to go - it contains these parts:


If you need more than these parts (they're often the only ones that need replacing) due to additional damage, you might consider this more comprehensive kit instead:


It's not a big job, but can be a little labor intensive (take pictures as you disassemble the mechanism to help with reassembly later). It can get a little troublesome getting it set up correctly, but is certainly not beyond the scope of abilities of a person that normally uses the tools required to do the job. Desire, a couple hours (or more if springs are broken) and a little bit of mechanical aptitude is all that is required.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply, thanks!

Stiches are loose in the bottom side of the cloth,if i change the bobbin case....will it help? I can understand that tension of thread is the problem.....but don't know what to do

the case the bobbin goes into has a little spring on its side .. the spring has one or two screws. one screw adjusts tension on the spring .. the bobbin thread goes under that spring when it is properly threaded .. if the screw is loose or missing then replace the screw or tighten it a little so that thread pulled thru the bobbin case spring has a bit of drag .. if its too loose then you can tighten the screw a bit more ... if you tighten it too much then it will pull the top thread thru to the bottom .. if your adjustment screw or spring is missing then you can replace the bobbin holder .. the new one should have the spring in place and be properly tightened .. . often the adjustment screw is just loose or the thread is not positioned correctly in the bobbin case slot. .

I have 10awg/4 cond will this work for running 220v to my shop. about 110feet

Depends how many amps you plan on using. 10 awg wire can handle about 30 amps at 240 volts and max distance is 80 feet. If you want more power you will need heavier wire, like 6 awg will handle 50 amps at 240 volts and max distance is 125 feet.

If you need more info please contact me.

No Crema

If your talking about the tube on the brew unit, you are probably missing the spring or if you have the spring its upside down. Again if this is what you are taking about is the check ball at the bottom of the spring(ball in first, small end of the spring on the ball, O-ring, then the manifold)These things are important for creama.
