Intake manifold


If you're replacing with a stock intake it's a pretty straight forward job...drain coolant, disconnect battery, remove belt, remove alternator and bracket to intake manifold, take note of where each spark plug wire goes, twist plug wires 1/4 turn in each direction then pull up being careful not to tear long rubber boots on wires, leave spark plugs in so no dirt or coolant gets into cylinders.remove e.g.r tube from throttle body,disconnect all vacuum lines and all sensor connectors,you have to be careful removing injector connectors because they become brittle and will break very easily, remove bolts for throttle body and remove body,.relieve fuel pressure from fuel rail by putting on a fuel pressure tester and with a relief valve, there's various ways to release fuel pressure, this is safest, then disconnect fuel line from rail (if you don't want to do it that way you can leave fuel line on and remove 4 8 mm bolts for fuel rail and remove rail and fuel injectors all together, take injectors out from intake not fuel rail by pulling on them from bottom of injectors near intake)remove coolant hoses at back passengers side of intake, remove 2 10 mm bolts for thermostat housing, remove T stat...there may be a bracket on the drivers side rear of intake, (remove top 15 mm bolt, and remove ground cable at back side of head, think it's a 13 mm bolt, then remove 15 mm bolt holding the back of bracket, it's gonna be tight back there but doable with wrench) remove the rest of the 10 mm bolts holding the intake manifold on, remove intake...remove intake gaskets taking care not to let any dirt or debris to get into head ports, I usually put a clean rag in each hole, and clean around them then blow out anything that might have fallen into any ports.you can look rite down into them to make sure everything is clean.make sure all dirt is off head surface and install new gaskets, they lock into place on heads if installed correct. Put on new intake and hand tighten bolts..these bolts have to be torqued in order..starting from the middle of intake torque bolts to 15-22 lb-ft going in a crossover order (right side, left side, right side in an X pattern from center out)...install all connectors and components in reverse order , fill fluids and check over for any leaks or anything loose...I maverick have missed a few small steps but think im pretty close...this isn't a bad job, but take your time and mark anything you think you might not remember where it goes...good luck..any other questions please contact me..

Assembly manual


To remove the crank (the arm the pedal is attached to), you'll need a special tool. I got mine at a bike shop. (Bike shops are our friends.) I use the Park Tools CWP-7. It's pretty much a big bolt with a smaller bolt going through it. You'll remove the cap covering the spindle bolt (if it hasn't fallen out already), remove the bolt that holds the crank are onto the spindle, then thread the "big bolt" part of the tool into the threads for the cap on the crank. You'll then screw the inside bolt into the big bolt, which will push the crank arm off of the spindle.

Prepare to oil by filling a grease gun with lithium grease. Check your owner's manual for the exact type of grease for your unit.

2

Locate where it is you need to lubricate. Focus on the bearings, free-moving joints and attachments with moving parts such as handle bars, wheels, pedals arms and guide rails. Go to each location one by one when greasing.

3

Unfasten the bolts or screws that hold the joint or attachment that you wish to lubricate.

4

Grease each bolt and screw liberally. Tighten each bolt and screw back into its place when finished.

5

Wipe away any excess grease

1

Kneel next to the left side of the elliptical's base. Use the Phillips screwdriver to tighten the two screws located in the center of the left pedal.

2

Use the Allen wrench to remove the bolt securing the left pedal arm to the pedal leg and body arm. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw securing the rear end of the pedal leg to the crank arm.

3

Pull the end of the pedal leg free of the crank arm. Wipe the crank arm clean, then apply a fresh coating of machine grease or silicone lubricant. Replace the end of the pedal leg back onto the crank arm and use the previously removed screw to secure it back into place.

4

Join the front end of the left pedal arm to the ends of the pedal leg and body arm. Use the previously removed bolt to connect the pieces together.

5

Move to the right side of the elliptical and repeat the above steps on the right pedal arm

How do i put the nail pusher spring back in the hitachi framing nail gun


Remove all bolts holding the rails to the body of the gun (make note of the position of the parts as you take then off ). Slide out the pusher assmbly. If the spring is good (wound tightly and has the bolt hole), hold the pusher assmbly in hand and attach spring to body of gun leaving bolt loose. Slide the pusher back into the rails and attach rails to body of gun up against the bolt (snug down bolt and check spring action). Re-attach rails to gun. Some after market rails do not have the slot cut into front allowing easy install of spring (cut slot with dremel). Good luck

I have a Stanley tripod flash light that taked 3 AA batteries in each leg of the tri pod. On one of the legs the batteries corroded inside and I can't seem to get them out . Any suggestions to this...


After drilling each leg to remove my corroded batteries I found that each leg isa push fit allowing it to seperate from the body thus allowing a screwdriver to be pushed thru releasing the corroded batteries. Re-assemble assuring a tight fit to make connection and it works well. Good luck I was drilling 1 leg for hours and the other 2 took ten minutes.

Where is the thermostat located?


Thermostat replacement on 97 cutlass supreme 3.1 liter:
First thing I can tell you is give yourself plenty of time to do this simple job. Its not really difficult but can be especially trying if your time is limited. Change the thermostat when the engine is cold. Drain about 3 quarts of coolant from the cooling systen and save it. Remove the air intake hose from the filter canister to the throttle body.( 2 clamps ) Remove the throttle cable and cruise cables by gently prying them off the throttle body butterfly arm. Remove the spring between the throttle body arm and the throttle cable bracket. Remove the (10mm nut) from the rear of the bracket. ( its on a stud used where the egr tubing attaches ) Remove the 2 8mm head bolts from the bracket near the front where it attaches to the throttle body. Remove the 13mm nut (using a socket) from the bottom of the throttle bracket attaching it to the manifold. As I remember there possibly is another bolt near and to the rear there also. Remove the clamp holding the fuel lines to this bracket. You shuld now be able to remove the throttle bracket and set it aside while getting to the thermostat. There are 2 bolts holding the thermostat housing in place. The easy one is forward top and can be reached with a short socket (13mm) and wobble extention or universal joint. The trying one is to the rear and lower. There is very limited space between the 13mm bolt head and the exhaust crossover pipe. The bolt is very trying to remove and get started again. Fortunatly the lower mounting hole of the thermostat housing is usually slotted. Using a 12 point 13mm box wrench, (or better yet if you have one) a 13mm crowfoot, back out this bolt as far as you can without removing it.( 1/12th of turn at a time ) With some aggravation and manuvering the housing will come off and out with the thermostat staying in the manifold. If the thermostat tries to come out with the housing the housing can't be removed due to space limitations. Use a screwdriver or simular small tool to hold the thermostat in the manifold cavity until the housing is free. Now the thermostat and rubber sealing ring will come out. The rubber ring usually comes with a new thermostat so no gasket is requred. As ALL the manuals read " REVERSE PROCEEDURE TO INSTALL "

Canon MP530 print head malfunction


I had the same problem with my printer. There is a switch that tells the printer that the cover is open or closed. Unplug the printer. Open up the printer cover and look on the inside right side edge. About half way back, you'll see a 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch hole where this switch resides. If you put your finger into it, you may be able to push on a lever and it will go down. It should spring back up when you pull your finger out. If you can feel the lever but it just sits at the bottom then there either this lever is broken or the spring fell off.

The problem with my printer was the spring had popped out. To access the switch, you'll need to remove the right side cover. Do this by removing the two screws in the back on the right side. Open the printer cover and find the third screw. It is located on the right hand side, near the front of the printer, on the top. Remove this screw and pop out the cover and see if you can find the spring that is attached to the lever. Make sure you do this in an area that if a small piece fell out you could find it.

Look at the switch and lever. If there is no spring attached to the lever then it is most likely the problem, otherwise the switch may be bad or the electronics inside the printer. There is a hook on the lever and one on the printer. Reconnect the spring and it should fix the problem. I found my spring had completely fallen out and fell on the floor when the cover was opened. It is possible that this spring if fallen out can fall back inside the printer so you may have to shake the printer to find this little spring. It is about 1/2 inch long. Hope this helps.

Head of philips norelco speed xl fell apart.


Same thing happened to my father's shaver. After working on it for about 30 mins, this is how I fixed it. You need to start with the top silver piece/cover. Turn it over so you see inside of it. Drop the 3 screens into the holes upside down (so they face out). You need to rotate the screens until they sit as low as possible. Now drop in the 3 blades, again sharp side down. There should be a triangular piece with 3 circles attached to it. One side is gray, and the other side has a black triangular piece. If you look closely each leg of the black piece has a tiny picture of a lock and an arrow. Rotate the black piece in the opposite direction of the arrow. Place the gray side down lining it up with the three blades. Now rotate the black piece, it will lock into position, and hold the blades in place! Finally, the silver head has a little hinge on one side. This hinge is flexiable. Bend it to a 90 degree angle, and slip it into the notch on the top part of the main body of the shaver. Close the head part, in my father's shaver I had to press a lever in the front to snap it into place.

Hope this helps!
