Huffy stalker 18 speed, I can't tighten the stem.


If you are talking about the handle-bar stem, the bolt you need to tighten is right in the middle of the post. It may have a snap-on plastic cover over it. This will be the head of a long bolt that reaches down inside of the stem where the nut is shaped as a wedge that serves to tighten inside the tube of the front fork. If you are talking about the the seat-post, then your seat-post might be of too small diameter.This page shows a good picture of the handle-bar stem bolt and wedge nut.

All you have to do is put a distilled version of your request into a search engine "adjust shimano 3 speed internal hub" and voila - videos and other resources.

We have an 18" boys huffy bike and the chain keeps falling off. How can I repair.


If a single speed bike loosen the rear wheel and pull it back away from the pedals to get the chain tighter

If it has multi gears the arm hanging down has a ser screw that will need to be adjusted to align the chain to stop at the last gear

Ball bearings fell out of handlebar connection on 3-speed bike.


Take it to a professional bike shop. They have the knowledge and tools to set it right.

Or take a look at this:
http://www.sheldonbrown.com/headsets.html

The headset nuts were not necessary to be moved for handlebar adjustment. Now the bearing load is too tight. Correct adjustment of the headset requires a delicate balance between tightness and freedom of movement. If your bike has/had the original bearings it's a safe bet they may be due for replacement anyway.
