Top dead center:*Set breaker point gap from .018 to .022*Bring #1 piston to "Top Dead Center"*The zero "D-C" mark on the vibration damper must be aligned with the timing indicator/pointer*Rotate distributor until points begin to open slightly, then tighten distributor*Start engine & allow to reach normal operating temperature*Set warm idle at 475 RPM*Use timing light to verify that the zero "D-C" mark on the vibration damper is in alignment with the timing indicator/pointer
No, the o ring should not squeeze out. When putting the top and bottom components together....
Make sure surfaces are clean...No lube!!!
Make sure o ring is clear
Install o ring usually on lower half but depends on model
Gently place upper half on lower
Place clamp around the halves (this can be tricky)
If there is a tension spring with the clemps, do not use it yet
Without the spring, insert bolt and start tightening the clamp
The halves should slowly come together
Make sure the halves and band are aligned
Once the top is on the bottom fairly secure, loosen the clamp and re-tighten with the spring this time till the spring is compressed with no gap between the colis on the spring. If you have two tightening clamps, do this at equal intervals.
I dont know the exact model you have, but this is a standard procedure... Good luck..
Does the lower half of the agitator still operate normally? (Back and forth) Can you spin the top half (spiraled part) of the agitator in both directions with out the lower half moving? If so then you have a worn set of agitator "dogs" they are little plastic ears located in the upper half of the agitator and catch the notched inner section of the agitator to make the top action work like a corkscrew, slipping one way and driving the other as the lower half goes back and forth.
To get at these parts you will need to remove the agitator, Remove fabric softener dispenser or cap on top, and look down inside tho opening.
You will need to remove the plastic cover inside that has two ears sticking up, pull on one side or the other and it should pop out, there will be a rubber seal around it so it will be a little difficult to remove.
Now you will have access to the bolt that holds the entire agitator in the machine. The agitator dogs are located right on the outer edge of the center cup that the bolt goes through. To access them you will want to seperate the two halves of the agitator and flip the top half upside down while holding your hand inside it to catch the cup with the dogs in it. Part number 80040, for the dogs.
Good luck to You!!
I have a Whirlpool Utlimate Care II LSQ8520JQ0. For those having a problem separating the upper and lower agitator halves, here's how I solved it after about 2 hrs of aggravation.
Called Sears and Whirlpool with no help (didn't have tech manual...go figure).
I saw the same post with the problem with melted hooks (I called them tabs) ontop of the dog housing being melted. You can differentiate the melted tabs from the dog housing as the dog housing is usually clear plastic (after wiping all the crud off) and the tabs are white as they are part of the agitator. There will be four white tabs on top of the dog housing. They look both smashed and melted. I took a flat head screw driver and and hammer and chipped off the white melted tabs visible on top. I inevitably also chipped some of the dog housing but only marginally. Once chipped off you'll see the tabs are actually rectangular in shape. At this point I EASILY pulled the top and lower halves apart. Those retangular tabs are the molded part of the agitator housing extending down past the dog housing. You're home free at this point.
It's the melted tabs on top of the dog housing that keeps you from separating the halves. What a pain but finally figured it out.
you need to install new agitator dogs . very in expensive. remove cap on top of agitator reach in and remove opaque cover. you should see a 1/2 " bolt remove that and pull up on agitator. pull apart two halves. disassemble. install four dogs. reassemble in reverse order
to remove the back cover of samtron 56 v monitor is very simple.
locate the 2 bottom screws of the cover, remove them. pull slightly back the cover holding the bottom and about half an inch gap will be seen. insert a flat screw driver straight down through the upper side hole with your left hand and hit the head of the screw driver with your right hand. a slightly big sound is heard and that side is disengaed. repeat he same with the second hole. and you have done it. try.
To seperate the two body halves:
1-Set the vacuum on it's wheels & open the front door.
2-Place a wide screwdriver blade just between the reaer cover and the rubber bumper and tap the screwdriver on the side to push the bumper forward towards the door a little bit.
3-Grasp the bumper and pull it straight out.
4-Leave the vacuum halves together...flip the vac over on it's top.
5-Put your palms against each wheel with your fingers in between the body halves..pull each side out just a little and snap the lower body upwards. It will then come apart.
6-You can then mark the wires on the cordwinder for corresct replacement afer the repair.
Make sure you put the bumpers back on each I-Beam before you put it back together. (they don't need to be removed). And the FLAT end of the rubber bumper is against the front door.
Good Luck !
