Question about Salomon SNS Pilot Equipe Skate Binding

Open Question

The front pin on one of my boots is not square the the pilot pin and is half worn through. boot??

Other than the pin, the boots are in great shape. I hate to throw them out if there is a way to replace or repair the front pins. I have heard of factory defective boots with a crooked pin that doesn't cause a problem until the pin starts to wear.

    The boots are Solomon SNS RS3 Pilot Skate and the front bar is not square with the pilot bar. Looking back even when they were new there was an issue but, I thought it was a binding issue. Once in awhile I would ski the boots on diagonal glide skis and the left ski never tracked straight. When skating I didn't notice a problem until the front bar started to wear. When I come down after a kick stride the boot clicks as it doesn't want to set straight onto the ski/binding.

1990 Geo Prizm sounds like a knocking sound under power coming from around the front hub. when i release the accelerator the noise disappears. what is this mysterious issue.

This noise is caused by a worn or damaged front drive axle Constant Velocity Joint (CV for short), there is one of them at each front wheel just behind the brake disk on the end of the drive axle, they have a rubber cone shaped grease boot over the joint, check to see if the grease boot is torn, the joint then runs dry of grease and makes noise, at that point it must be replaced. Have a shop put in the air and inspect them both.

Jaguar xtype front rattle when hitting pothole sounds like comes from both sides.. might it be shocks ?/ 150.000 km on clock

More likely cause are control arm bushings or tie rod ends, or ball joints. Drag link bushings can also be at issue. If you are handy, get a very large pair of channel lock pliers and locate every suspension mounting point you can find that has a dust boot and connects to a suspension part. These are usually ball shaped things with a stud that passes through another part and is secured with a large nut and cotter pin. If you carefully clamp the part with the pliers--such as tie rod ends--so as not to damage the dust boot, you may find it has some free play. If so, that may be the culprit. Any free play in any of your suspension parts could be the problem. You mentioned shocks...the top of the shock absorber strut has bushings which sometimes do wear out, but based on your description, it sounds like a worn suspension bushing or pivot point.

Leak air for the trigger

Could be leaking from trigger or in front of trigger at plunger. Spray soapy water on area and determing exact leak. If from trigger pin, remove pin holding metal trigger (3mm roll pin) and check white plastic plunger for oring on groove. If oring is in place then check vinyl ball inside trigger valve bushing. Replace as needed. If leak is in front of trigger at black boot, remove head and replace oring on outer part of cylinder plate (donut shaped plate at top). Good luck

When moving forward from a dead stop and turning left or right, there is a jerking in the front end but once you straighten out it goes away.this blazer is a 4 x 4. It has 124000 miles on it and this...

sounds to me like front half-shafts outer c/v are frozen OR the c/v boots are split and the lube is gone.
a visual on the boots, if you see grease all spread around there, then the joints are new half-shafts.
also, possible worn ball joints causing the steering knuckles to bind on a hard turn...

1995 nissan terrano 2.7 turbo diesel 4wd. just wonding what will be causing the clicking sound while turning?i have replaced the wheel bearings,thort that will be the problem but not so.the 4wd is not...

It could be the front cv joints even when the 4wd is not engaged. The wheels are set up like a front wheel driven car, so they have half shafts that go into your transfer case. Have a look at the cv boots, and see if its leaking grease, but then again, the mechanic who replaced your wheel bearings would have noticed something wrong.
If not that, and if it clicks when you are truning the steering wheel, the rack and pinion has lost its fluid. Might wanna check the boots on the tie rods and see if they are leaking fluid.

My dc7100 has a compact power supply with proprietary 24 pin plug. Pretty sure power supply is non-functional (shorted green to black and fan didn't come on). Is it possible to rewire a conventional ATX...

I just spotted this, hence the late solution. Perhaps this will help someone in the future.

Yes it is possible.

Observe the color code of the insulation of the wires.

1) Orange wires are 3.3 Volts

2) Red wires are 5 Volts

3) Yellow wires are 12 Volts

4) The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire

5) All Black wires are Ground wires. Doesn't matter which Black wire it is, it's a Ground wire.
(It isn't a Common wire. This is DC electricity, not AC)

These are your main voltages, and wires to be concerned with.

Fortunately all HP, (Or any proprietary computer manufacturer in that time period), did, was to change where the wires are placed in the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

They just moved the wires in the socket holes, didn't change the color code.

Solution is,
1) To remove the wires in the ATX power supply, main power cable connector
2) To remove the wires in the proprietary computer's ATX main power cable connector.

BE SURE to make a concise, clear, drawing FIRST, of where the colors of the wires went in the proprietary connector, BEFORE you remove them!)

3) To reinstall the wires into the proprietary connector.
(Again. Following the color code of the wires you removed)

Removing the wires out of the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable connector:

Observe these photos, of a 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector. This procedure can be applied to a 24-pin ATX main power cable connector also. (Or a 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable connector)

(Also gives you information about the color code of the wires)

The middle photo shows you a view of the Front of the connector.
The photo to the right shows you the Back of the connector.

Where the wires go down into the connector is a Socket Hole.
At the end of each wire is a metal pin connector. A Male pin connector.

This metal pin connector is shaped like a tube on the end, and comes up to a square shape as you go up.
The square shape fits the square socket hole.

On one side of the square shape is a Tang. It's part of the square metal shape, and sticks out away from the square shape.
Resembles a barb on a fish hook.

In this crude illustration, let a small L represent the side of the square shape, and this forward slash - / represent the tang.


This is an illustration from a manufacturer that supplies this type of metal Male pin connector,

A needle with the proper thickness so it won't bend, is inserted into the Front side of the socket hole, and is used to depress the Tang.

If you look down into the back of the connector, and into an individual socket hole with a bright light, and a magnifying glass, you will observe that the square socket hole has a small notch in one side.
This is where the tang slides down into.

It isn't easy to see from the front side.

The tang is depressed using the needle from the FRONT of the ATX main power cable connector, and the wire is removed from the Back side of the connector.

The metal pin connector's tube shape only goes up so far, then it turns into a square shape.

The socket hole in the connector is shaped to match. Tube shaped hole at the front of the connector, square shape coming on up to the back of the connector.

The square shape's corners, of the metal pin connector, keep it from coming out of the Front of the ATX main power cable connector.

The tang keeps the metal pin connector from coming out of the Back.

Noise when i turn left

HI, these sysmtoms can be caused by many issues that may be present within this vehicles front steering rack. i will list some trouble areas that you should inspect. you will find the issue in one or all of these areas stated below.

Inspection List--

1. Check the Steering gear on the power steering. this is a known problem area and can cause the sounds you are experiencing at this time. this gear may be worn.

2. Next, you will need to inspect the CV Half-shaft(remanufactured) CCT. Check this device and see if it is dry or damaged or worn. if the actual CV boot has slipped off or it is busted, it will allow the joint to dry up, in return, causing major damage that will lead to very loud sounds.

3. I would also inspect the Front wheel bearings as well. inspect for worn,dry or damaged bearing assembly. replace if damage is noticeable.

Please rate and have a great day:)

Blade lock on Craftsman 10 amp recip

The guide foot comes completely out by wiggling and pulling a little harder than you would think. It is held in place by friction in addition to the two screws. Once the guide foot is removed, remove the front metal support piece by prying it out of the groove in the rubber boot. You can then access the pin and blade release lever. Make sure the return spring is in place on the rear side of the blade lock latch.
