I have an older Tunturi and the speedo gauge is very squeaky. Can it be greased?

I have taken it apart, just wondering what type of grease or lubricant I should use. Thanks.

Oil works best, 2 - 5 drops in the top of the cable housing and it will make its way down. don't use more than that just let it work. might actually drip out bottom so might want to put a towel under it.

Testimonial: "Thx, but it is the actual gauge that squeals, not the cable. I might try a little silicone spray and see if that helps."

SOURCE: Where can I get a speedo cable for a Tunturi

If it is just the inner cable and you don't need the housing then Napa Auto parts and others sell a universal cable kit that you can cut to fit and comes with a crimp tool for installing the square end on it.

Dash board odometer/speedometer squeaking. How to remove dashboard? Cable loose or need grease?

Somewhat depends on the make/year. Older cars/trucks had a cable from the transmission to the speedo/odo. These can wear out and/or need grease, and can squeak. Newer cars/trucks replace the cable with electronics, and aren't likely to squeak...
If you have a cable, greasing can be messy. The one time I saw this done was on a '60s car, and the mechanic removed the cable from the back of the speedo, pulled the center almost all the way out of the outer covering, and applied white grease all along the center while pushing it back in. Never squeaked again.

My mixer is leaking oil.

This kind of unit are lubricated with grease paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.

How do I replace the speedometer cable on my 1990 softtail

If your bike has a speedo drive unit on the front wheel, you can unscrew the cable out of the drive unit. Then take the dash off and disconnect the cable from the speedo and pull the cable out of the housing. Slide the new cable in the housing making sure you lubricate the cable well with some grease before you slide it in the housing. Engage the new cable in the speedo drive unit and screw the housing back into the unit. Do the same at the speedo head. If you're replacing the housing as well, simply take the entire speedo cable housing out and install the new one. I'd still pull the inner cable out of the housing and lube it good with some grease. Most any general purpose chassis lube type grease will work.

Good Luck

Squeaky engine mounts

that is not your motor mounts. It is most likely one of the following:

shocks worn
worn control arm bushings
tie rods need greased (try this first) If your tie rods do not have a grease zerk go to a parts store and tell them you need a hypodermic needle for a grease gun and you will have to puncture the boot and then put 3-4 squirts of grease. the hole will not allow grease to leak out, it is perfectly fine. If you would rather not do this your only other option would be to replace the tie rods.

Cub Cadet lt-1050 can't steer

If you purchased this unit from a home center etc. they never set them up or grease them ... if you can not steer this unit it was probly never greased at set up . you may need to remove the front spindles from the axle and remove the rust. before you reassemble be sure the grease fitting is not pluggedd up with rust as well , reinstall replace retainingclip( you will need to get a new ones) and grease your machine, also the mower spindles have grease fittings as well that need to be greased but the spindles need to be taken apart and the inner bearings seal removed to allow grease to enter the bearings

Squeaky drum

The drum rides on felt glides in the front, rollers in the back. The glides can wear out, but more often the rollers just need new grease. It must be high temperature grease. A lot of times the rollers are held in place by snap rings, that means you need snap ring pliers. Time for a technician. Besides, it's a pain to take a dryer apart. While apart, vacuum the insides.

Hobart A200 noise

Your mixer was built in 1942 and from the sound of it, it's been without grease for some time. Before you dismantle it, try adding new grease to it. This is the less expensive and less time consuming approach. The grease product to look for is Shell Darina XL EP-2, Try to find a local Shell Distributor and see if they'll sell you about 4 tubes of 400 grams each. This grease is compatible with most other greases, so you won't have to remove the old grease before you add the new stuff.

Remove the four screws that attach the Hub to the body of the mixer, pull off the hub. You now have access to the transmission area. work the new grease into the cavity, try to get as much grease as you can toward the back of the compartment. This will be a very messy job unless you have, or acquire a grease gun that the tubes will fit in. Lay the mixer on it's back and let gravity help you to get a lot of grease down through the hub opening. Keep adding grease until you've greased up to the hub opening. Grease the hub gear and then re-install the hub. Raise the mixer to vertical and start up the mixer, letting it run for a couple of minutes. Stop the mixer and shift gears,, once again start the mixer and repeat this procedure for the last gear. Listen for the sounds it was making before, they should be silent or at least muted. If it's still making loud noises, You may well have to take it apart for an overhaul. Dont overlook the planetary gearing, this gearing is not bathed in grease like the trans. Remove the planetery assembly, clean and inspect the planetary gear and the large ring gear in the mixer body. Regrease both and re-assemble. Your mixer is now as quiet as it will get short of a complete overhaul. If this solution works, it has only cost you a few bucks and a bit of time, making this. solution a good one, unless you still have the major noise issues.

I f you've found this solution helpfull, please rate it and Good Luck! ricardok45

Greasing a mixer

I think this link will help you understand what is needed to fix your mixer.

You need to replace some grease, but make sure to use a non-toxic food grade grease.
