There are - literally - a million ways to approach that question. Could you be a little more specific? What's the project? How heavy is the object to be lifted? How high do you need to lift it? How fast must it be lifted? What's your power source? How much horsepower is available from that power source? How large a budget are we working with? How flexible are the requirements? Would ramping or pneumatics or hydraulics also perhaps be suitable? Is this for a school project? Is it purely academic? What are you doing up at this hour? 8)

Mazda Etude 1.8 sportswagon 2001 model. Replaced cambelt-cambelt not running true. Partly running off top gear pulleys & rubs on belt cover. What could be cause as mechanic repaired-still happening.

This is caused by one of your pullys being out of line with the others, posiblly because of a bad bearing or one just not assembled correctly. I'd check this with a straight edge on the front of the pullys.

Why is there not enough storage when the device is apparently supposed to have 8GB of it?

Error message 075-210 relates to the lift motor in the tray mechanism. The description from the manual states "Tray 5 Lift Up Sensor does not turn ON a spec time after Tray 5 starts lifting up. "

This is becoming a common problem as the machines gets older and is a simple fix.

Inside the tray 5 there is drive motor with lots of gears, it is the smallest gear that is slipping on the drive motor, this means the drive mechanism doesn't have enough power to lift the paper tray to the up position, so the error will appear.

The simple fix is to remove the small gear and put some epoxy resin inside it and put it back on the shaft, this seems to fix 95% of these problems. Just be careful not to get any glue on the surrounding gears or the driver motor itself. See the image attached to see where the small gear is located inside the drive mechanism.

This error code indicates a problem related to paper cassette lift mechanism. First thing that you will need to check is, if the printer makes some strange noises at initialization, when the printer is trying to lift the paper inside cassette. You can verify if the lift mechanism on the printer is ok, by removing paper cassette and press the 3 small white switches on the left of printer. At this moment the printer is trying to lift the cassette and you will see a gear that rotates on the right side of printer. Also verify if the GEAR LIFT Z64 is intact by opening the gearbox(the big one from the gears from the right side of paper cassette). This gear is cracked in most cases. Replace it.

I have a ford galaxy and my power steering belt has snaped the new one wont fit back on witch pully is the ajuster

if you look at the engine youll see the alternator directly above the alternator you will see a pully which doesnt have grooves on the surface like the rest of the pullys. this smooth pully is the tensioner pully and you will need to use a large ratchet or spanner to to lift up the pully (its on a spring) so you can fit the belt.
shiney pullys indicate that they sit or rest on the outside of the belt.

hope this helps

Serpentine belt replacement how to loosen belt

To loosen and remove the drive belt on a 2004 Toyota 1.4L engine you simply use a wrench and pull up on the spring-loaded tensioner.1d45837.gif
You should be aware, however, that if you are experiencing problems with belt squeal or rattling noise, there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) for your vehicle that provides information for an updated tensioner assembly.

This might be because of the gear box problem. By any chance, did your car face flooding? In such cases, please drain the gear box and replace it with new gear fluids. Also, check if you go in low speeds, you might be able to engage it with ease. Please come back to me if you feel this doesnt solve your issue.

Reverse gear problem

Change the Transmission filter and flush the fluid in it, I'd be willing to be the factory filter is still in these trannys and it's about clogged up, gettin worse once the fluid heats up. The pump won't build enough pressure to allow it to act properly.
