SOURCE: brand new Black Max 5 gallon wont run

Unplug the compressor power chord. If you can turn the flywheel, then nothing is stuck. Plug in the power chord and try the compressor again. If it does not work, return the compressor for a replacement.

If you can't turn the flywheel, then something is stuck, return the compressor for a replacement.

If you can't return the compressor for a replacement, then try to take it apart to locate the problem and fix it.

SOURCE: air comp bad crankshaft and rods need to remove and replace

What type of air compressor do you have?
Is it a single motor\pump combination is the pump and motor separated by a fly wheel? If it's the first one don't waste your time or your money. Hard to find parts hardier to justify the money if you do.
If it's the second then you should make sure you can get a rebuild kit and replacement parts. If you haven't already.
Assuming you have anyone of the more common pump brands like Dayton, Champion, Ingersoll Rand.
Dis-assembly should start with the top end. Remove the head and valve plate then the cylinder head bolts and cylinder head. Remove the wrist pin\pins and piston\pistons. Next remove the lower rod end caps and pull them out taking care not too nick the crank bearing journals. Remove the front crank cover and and (if it has one) the rear bearing cap\plug. You should be able to remove the crank through the front access. You may need to tap the back end of the crank clear or the rear bearing.
The bearings will probably need to be pressed out.
Unless you have a pump that is considered non serviceable or is an oddity this should do it.
If your pumps layout differs from the norm or you just need more specific information please let me know. Just include the make and model and I'll be glad to help you out. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a air compressor mod#919.166600, oil less

to be honest a non lube pump design is problematic at best, if you use it for any length of time they just do not hold up, money well spent in a oil lubricated pump you will be far happier!

After replacing the timing belt the 2nd belt tore up completely in minutes, it appears the fly wheel bearings pulled out a 1/2 inch, I pushed it back in but it again came out and tore the belt.


Do this. Push the bearing back in and use a center punch and make 4 evenly spaced dimples around the outer edge of the bearing where it contacts the case.

Hi I changed my gearbox on my 54 plate zafira 2.0 dti put a new slave cylinder in but it pop straight away do I need the fly wheel for that gearbox Many thanks john


If by pop you mean that the slave cylinder piston came out of the cylinder then I would fix that by installing a longer push rod to take up the extra length required by the slave cylinder being too far away from the clutch throw out lever (or relocate the cylinder closer to the arm. The length would be about 1/4" shorter than when the piston is fully bottomed out and that will give you a bit of free play and not let the clutch slip. Keep the fly wheel in mind but as long as the throw out bearing stays on the clutch input shaft housing then the flywheel would not solve much

Washer belt 7 PJE 1303


Right size belt, just a bear to put on. Easiest way, zip tie belt to fly wheel (one each side of spoke/spine). Than run belt around pulley on motor, turn fly wheel, helps to guide belt as you turn. Takes a lil force but not much. Than slowly turn fly wheel to center belt. Be sure the ribs of belt are in troffs of pulley, if not easily pushed over, about 1 inch from pulley.

To change the outer main bearing on a t30 - 23405l do you have to take everything apart including taking off the jugs?


Let me give you some info. I guess you are talking about the bearing next to the fly wheel. The crankshaft has to come completely out. the crank can not be removed until you have removed the rods from the crank shaft pin. Most of the time if a bearing goes bad you need to replace the rods and crank shaft pin. I 've never done it but if you can get the rods out of the way the crank will come out. My recommendation would be, remove the fly wheel, remove the inner cooler, remove any small tubing lines, Remove the front frame cover, Remove the 2 bolts holding the crank pin bushing (don't forget to lock wire these bolts back together during assembly), Remove the cylinder, head, piston and rod together as a unit. Don't let the piston come out of the cylinder or move around to much unless replacing the rods. Once you get both LP and HP cylinders, heads etc off you can remove the front bearing cap exposing the bearing and a snap ring. Take a piece of wood or brass and from the crank shaft counter weight side (rod side)knock the crank shaft toward the fly wheel side until the snap ring can be removed. Once the snap ring is removed knock the crankshaft back toward the rod side and continue until out of the bearing races. Then remove the crank. The outer bearing can then be pressed off with the retainer at one time. Remove the sleeve. To remove the large bearing(back bearing) you need to be very careful and cut it off. Don't mess up the crank shaft. I've tried several ways to remove the back bearing but the easiest is cutting it off. To answer your question yes you have to disassemble to change bearings.

1995 Isuzu 5500 box truck 6 cyl diesel. truck overheated and water&coolant ended up in the oil pan and the motor ended up locking down. Can only spin fly wheel 1/2 to 3/4 revolution besides changing...


The connecting rods are probably frozen to the crank from overheating or the bearings are frozen. Pull the oil pan off and inspect the connecting rod bearings for a blueish coloring which is a sign they overheated. If they are you'll need to replace them all and have the crank and connecting rods turned.

I need aparts break down list for the pump on this compressor to find the part number of the fly wheel. Mine is bent


The part # is 97335756 (Belt wheel). Typically its hard to bend a belt wheel. They usually break not bend. I would check the crankshaft and front bearing before purchasing the belt wheel.

Where can i get a oil pump for a Mcc1635ak 35 cc


It is located behind the fly wheel. This is the only saw I have seen like this. I would check all hose connections and install the pump overhaul kit before attempting to change the oil pump on this saw. HTH

I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used as a piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
Impact wrenches destroy bearings and seals prying on the fly wheel often breaks cooling fins and throws off the balance. A puller is what the professionals use for fly wheel removal.

How do i change the starter on a 96 century


If it's the 3.1 or the newer 3100 the starter should just be a couple 13 and 15mm bolts. Plus the nut for the cable. Hope this helps.

Need rotation direction


Most are counterclockwise rotation. If you have the fly wheel the spokes double as cooling fins for the pump. The rotation will be blowing on the pump regardless which way the wheel is mounted. If you have no fly wheel then all I can say is all the Northstar pumps I've ever seen are counterclockwise rotation.
