If its the big (wide wire) wire, I have seen it (multiple) grounded to the firewall, and to the block. I suggest consulting your auto repair manual if possible.

How to change crankshaft sensor on a 2001 cad catiera


Its on the side of the block firewall side ... REMOVAL Numbers in text in parenthesis correspond to numbered components in image. Disconnect the wiring harness (1) from the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor pigtail. Securely attach a scrap piece of wire about 36 inches long to the CKP sensor pigtail. Later, this piece will be used as a pull wire to guide the new sensor pigtail back through the same routing. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the oil filter and capture any lost engine oil in a container. Loosen the oil cooler lines at the engine block. Back out the fittings far enough in order to gain sufficient clearance for the sensor pigtail connector to pass between the oil cooler lines and the side of the engine block. Remove the fastening bolt for the CKP sensor (1). Remove the CKP sensor and the O-ring seal from the engine block. Remove the CKP sensor pigtail. Observe the routing of the pigtail. Gently pull the CKP sensor pigtail down through the routing path and out. Guide the pigtail connector along the top of the oil cooler lines around to the side of the engine block. Pass the connector between the lines and the block at the point of the widest gap. Stop when the pull wire is exposed at both ends of the routing path. Disconnect the sensor from the pull wire. INSTALLATION Securely attach the CKP sensor pigtail to the lower end of the pull wire. Pass the pigtail connector between the oil cooler lines and the engine block. Using the pull wire as a guide, pull the sensor pigtail along the top of the oil cooler lines and around to the rear of the engine. Use the pull wire to pull the pigtail into position. Disconnect the pull wire from the sensor pigtail. Connect the sensor pigtail to the harness connector. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the CKP sensor and the engine block. Install the CKP sensor with a new O-ring seal into the engine block. Install the fastening bolt (1) for the CKP sensor. Check the harness for proper routing. Make sure that the wiring cannot come in contact with the exhaust manifold. Tighten the oil cooler lines at the engine block. Install the oil filter. Lower the vehicle. Recheck the engine oil level.

I get a small electric shock each time i put my hand on the heart rate monitor on the left of the treadmill. Also happens when i h the inclune buttons on the left. Any suggestions?


Hi Pjd



Shocking problem!



Suspect that the treadmill is generating static electricity.

It is building up as you run... via the rubber mat.

Like the comb through the hair picking up tissue paper bits.

This is basically a Van De Graaff Generator.



Try attaching a wire from the machine chassis (metal) to a metal tap at your sink.

Do you still get a shock?



Not sure where you are and what your electric supply is.

I'm in Australia and our AC plugs have a third pin which is connected to our meter box which is then connected to an outside GROUND ROD.



Perhaps the AC power you are using has no ground or only a 2 pin connection. I which case I would add a three wire plug to the treadmill and the ground pin would connect to the treadmill's metal chassis by a screw or bolt.

Anti static spray may also help



Cheers

Tricky. I would suggest running a wire to a earth point such as a copper pipe, say of a radiator. A lot of static could be caused by yourself when handling an record. Some carpets make this worse. You can get an anti-static earth strap for yourself, when you handle the records.

Tecumseh troubleshooting


Three things, the magneto is faulty, the circuit is grounded, the plug wire or boot is faulty. A quick test is to remove the small ground wire from the magneto (usually black), if you then get spark the circuit is grounded by a safety switch or a bad wire segment. If not remove the spark plug rubber boot and remake the connection, if you get spark you've fixed it and if not you need a new magneto.

How do I get rid of static? Do I need a ground


You might try grounding the device. Run a wire from the metal frame of your turn table to the screw on the face plate of your outlet (very simplest way to get a good ground). See if that works. If you do see improvement, you could rewire the turntable with a 3 conductor wire, taking the green to the same metal frame of your machine.

You may want to consider plugging your turn table into your amplifier - in that case, ground the turntable to the amp for best results.

You might also try turning the plug over if it is not a polarized plug.

You can also check your outlet to make sure it is wired properly (white wire to the big slot and black wire to the little slot (in the USA) ground on the round slot)

Static muffling/removal/'elimination'/masking is always a trade off. Your software doesn't really remove static - it filters the frequencies that static uses to make the static noise. So, yes, you have a dulling of the frequencies in that range. Sorry to tell you that ... it has been an issue ever since I got interested in this stuff at age 10 or so (giving me about 50 years experience with static at the consumer level).

Thanks for your question

Wiring on an old 5hp Briggs and Stratton engine


The "heavy wire" connects to the spark plug. It should have a plug connector attached. There are 2 small wires. One of them grounds to the engine block (probably through one of the screws that holds the magneto in place). The other wire goes to the condensor/capacitor.

Alright, remember that 2-Stroke motors are meant to do 2 things:
Break down, then Frustrate you.

So, here we go: (Electrical)

Rotor Magnets, Magneto (ignition coil), Spark Plug Wire, Spark Plug, Spark Plug Ground (Cylinder Head).

In that order!

Check your "fire" from the Magneto:

1. Check your Kill Switch. In other words, leave everything normal, and unhook it. Did she start? Kill Switch it is! Kill Switch/Wire comes from the Magneto (single wire/ground) to the Switch itself. So check that wire AT the Magneto (Is it loose and grounding out? Is the Kill Switch grounding you out where it is, because of crud, junk, or because it is touching the block when it is not supposed to?)

2. Check your Spark Plug Wire. Easy, unook it from the plug, stick your finger in, give it a crank (non-MultiMeter way). Did you get shocked? Then it ain't your Plug Wire and Magneto!

With a Multi-/Volt Meter, simply hook her up, and check for juice WHEN you pull the rope. If you got juice, it ain't your Plug Wire or Magneto!

Checking Spark the "normal" way: Grab the Plug with a pair of insulated pliers, hold the plug end against the cylinder head, and pull your rope. Any Spark? What color?

3. STILL no fire. It leaves: Magneto and Plug Wire.
Luckily, they are both in the same place! Tear your blower down, and check to see if the Magneto has slipped out of place (gap is WAY out), or if the Plug Wire has worn to the point it is grounding you out. While you are there, check your Kill Switch wire, to see if she is grounding you out then and there.

4. STILL no fire. That means: Magneto Failing, or Magneto JUNK.
Buy another one, replace it! (Or steal one from another junk Blower/Weedeater. These things are fairly standard, and easy!)
Or, Bad Plug Wire. Meaning she has failed out on you.
Wait......that means: Replace your Magneto! Lucky the things are built together right?

have you tried unpluging it and plug it back in?

This update covers to the following Hitachi models and chassis
46UX50B/51K, 50UX52B/53K, 60UX54B/55K, 50SBX70B, 60SBX72B, 70SBX74B. All projection televisions using the AP73 & 74 chassis's From Dennis Viereck
SYMPTOM:
Intermittent loss of Raster, On Screen Display, sometimes sound. BUT ALWAYS HAS HIGH VOLTAGE! Also removing power and reapplying it again restores operation.
THE PROBLEM: There is a lack of a secondary ground for the CRT Dag connected to each CRT board. You can identify this missing ground on the CRT board by locating two vacant pins on each CRT driver board near the CRT socket. The connector is named P801, P831, and P861 relative to each board. The pin nearest the socket is the ground pin in question. The pin furthest from the socket is connected to the cathode of the CRT.

OBJECTIVE: Run a separate ground wire from the "GROUND" pin on each CRT board to the chassis ground. You can use the circuit board mounting screw on the frame under the green CRT. See drawing below.
DIRECTIONS: Obtain 3 wires 10, 14, and 18 inches long. The wire is 18 gauge stranded with an insulated jacket. Attach one wire to each ground pin on the CRT socket. Choose the correct length of wire so that all wires will connect to the circuit board mounting screw near the center of the chassis frame.

EXPLANATION: The extra ground is needed if an internal arc occurs in the CRT. This energy must find a path to ground. Before, the only path to ground is through the signal ground wire on the RGB drive connector. This thin wire does not go directly to chassis ground and is inadequate ground for the CRT dag. If the energy level of the discharge is high enough it may corrupt the data flow on the data & clock lines or negatively effect the OSD microprocessor. Since electricity takes the shortest path to ground, the additional ground wire will route the majority of that static pulse to chassis ground quicker and reduce the possibility of corrupting operation of the OSD processor.
