Yes. Metal pedal toys went out of style in the '70s with the introduction of plastic toys in the market. But pedal toys in general are still very used and appreciated in families with young kids, and while the plasti ones are lighter and cheaper, the metal ones provide a great traditional enjoyiment for many years to come, as the metal is much more resistant and durable than plastic, and at the same time can be passed from generation to generation. The metal also provides the possibility to customize the car and therefore make the present even more personal and appreciated.

I have a brand new brother's serger 1034D.. Its new.. as in never been used but once but it's not in warranty. It's making a grinding noise. I've liked it and is clean. Any ideas what's wrong??

Could be that since it has set for years without use or maintenance, the old oil has dried out and the motor is straining to run the machine without sufficient lubrication. Trying to run the machine in its present condition could damage the motor. Your machine very likely just needs a thorough oiling (1-2 drops of fresh good quality serger oil) every place that metal rubs on metal. (Sergers usually take a lighter-weight clear oil--different from what sewing machines would use.) You should probably throw out the oil that came with the machine. It is probably old and should not be used in your machine.

A serger requires much more frequent oiling (the moving parts behind the front door, ie the looper mechanics, etc.) than a sewing machine. In addition, about every year I take the bottom off my serger and lube the moving metal parts inside with Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube. It has a whole different sound after getting some TLC!

To keep your serger operating for years, be sure to regularly clean and apply a couple drops of lube as recommended in the owner's manual (maintenance section).

Overlock problems

it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see what's causing the squeeking problem and what's causing the pedal to get hot.

Hard brake pedal

You can only have whatever the engine vacuum is
at any time.
Is there vacuum to the booster check valve
& is the valve working,assuming you have the
old one or a new one with the new booster.
Does fluid flow out all 4 corners?
Are the Rubber Flex Hoses Collaped
Calipers Rusted & frozen?
Did you remove the master & clean out
the moisture from around the piston
That is where you start,then flush & on to
every component in the system, if they are
on the vehicle for many years
You do realize brake fluid gets changed every
2 years on all vehicles or you got big problems with
moisture in years to come

I have only 21500 miles on my 2004 F 15 351 engine. I have never changed the trans fluid or antifreeze. Should I consider doin so?

While the truck has low mileage, the fluids are still almost 10 yrs old.
As the truck sits, moisture builds up inside the engine and other components, and acids eat away at the metals in the cooling system and transmission.
Its a good idea to change the fluids every 3 or 4 years regardless of the mileage. Especially if the vehicle is parked for long periods of time or takes short trips.

My back lights won't turn off on my toyota tercel

  • Push the driver's seat as far back as possible, allowing you to lay on the floor on the driver's side.
  • 2 Shine a flashlight at the top of the brake pedal stalk and find the stoplight switch. It will be a plastic cube either connected to the brake stalk or directly opposite the brake stalk, depending on the vehicle.
  • 3 Depress the brake pedal and feel where the brake light switch contacts the stopping plate, a metal plate in direct line with the stoplight switch.
  • 4 Feel for an open hole where the stoplight's plunger-style button presses. If a hole is present, you simply need to replace the rubber stopper.
  • 5 Press and release the plunger-style button on the brake light switch and ask an assistant if the brake lights are turning off and on. If not, the switch is bad and must be replaced.
Stoplight Switch Stopper Replacement
  • 1 Clean out any remaining debris left behind by the old stopper from the hole that the stopper goes into.
  • 2 Press the new stopper into the hole on the metal plate until it snaps into place.
  • 3 Shine the flashlight on the stopper and check that it sits flush against the metal plate.
  • 4 Press and release the brake pedal and ask your assistant if the brake lights are turning off and on.
  • 5 Replace the stoplight switch if the lights continue to stay on.
Stoplight Switch Replacement
  • 1 Loosen and remove the bolts holding the stoplight switch in place. It could be between one and four bolts depending on the vehicle.
  • 2 Pull the stoplight switch from its mount. Disconnect the wiring harness from the stoplight switch by pressing or pulling the locking tab and puling the harness away from the switch.
  • 3 Plug the wiring harness into the new switch until the locking tab clicks into place.
  • 4 Place the new switch on the mount the old switch was removed from and tighten the bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • 5 Press and release the brake pedal several times and have your assistant check for proper operation.

How do you check your brake pads on 1991 prelude to see if they need replacing ? MOst have a notch but I did not see one on her car ? thanx

it is 20 years old, the brakes should have been changed at least 4 times by now. if you hear the metal wear tang hitting the rotor, or a dragging or scraping sound when you hit the brakes, it is time again.if you can feel the brakes through the brake pedal, it is time again.

Oh, fantastic!! These old sewing machines are just wonderful, and being all metal, will continue to work for years and years. Here are a couple of websites to check out:
(reviews of old machines by people who love them and use them)
(vintage, antique, and rare sewing machines)

(the last one focuses on treadle and crank machines, but still is interesting.)

Happy sewing!

Metal Pedal mutes my guitar.

Sell the pedal and get a digitech, or convert it into a looper pedal.
