SOURCE: I am trying to remove the pop-up drain

To clean the drain simply remove the packing nut off the back of the pop-up assembly. This is located under the sink itself and will be on the back side of the chrome (might be plastic) pipe coming out of the drain hole. This nut is what is holding the rod in place. When you remove it be sure not to lose the ferule (nylon washer) inside. after the nut is off, you can pull the actual stopper out and have better access to the drain inside. Use a small hair remover (you can buy these at the "depot"), it has a long body with small "spines" coming off the sides to catch hair, to pull out hair. It should be long enough to get into the P-Trap. After you are satisfied you can put the stopper back in. Make sure the hole in the bottom of the stopper is lined up to catch the rod. Reassemble the packing nut with ferule and check for leaks. If you want to take the trap off be sure to have some 'pipe dope' on hand to reseal the threads. Teflon tape is not necessary. Reassemble the trap and check for leaks and you should be good to go. Good luck :).

SOURCE: installing a vessel sink

Standard Vanity height is approx 34.5". A vessel vanity is approx 31" high. If you cannot remove the legs from your existing vanity then it will have to be replaced or cut down to the correct height. The reason a vessel vanity is lower is because your sink will be approx 3 to 6 inches higher than a standard drop in sink. This may be more work than it is worth. Vessel sinks most often will require a solid surface top, either glass, stone or another type of composite material. The standard laminate vanity top has a particle board substrate which will detiorate quickly at the drain location.

SOURCE: The pop up waste in

the plunger ( plug) has slipped out of the grove, or the bottom has split ,, heres a quick fix,, under the sink you will have a rod sticking out with a nut that holds in the shaft that is what moves the plunger up and down,, unscrew that nut and remove the shaft, there will be a tab that holds the rod to another piece of thin metal, just squeeze that and slide it off, once the nut has been removed, you can pull that out of the drain assembly, with a small flat head screwdriver,, pop up the plunger from inside the sink and inspect it,, if the lower tab on it looks good,, you will see how it slides in the hole, so that when the rod is inserted it will slip into that opening, in the plunger bottom, which makes the thing go up and down, once you've done that ( if the plunger was bad, just replace it, ) with the rod and nut back in place, you can adjust the tab so that the plunger goes up the desired length ,, here, this will make it more understanding Please rate my reply and response

How do i repair a leaking bathroom drain

This can be difficult if the drain is old or if Hercules overtightened the ring during installation. This sounds like you have a pop-up type drain and here's how you do it. You will need a 12" pair of channel type pliers, a 6" pair of pliers and a flat screwdriver. First put a pan under the trap, and remove the three nuts holding trap together. The trap is full of water so remove carefully. Now disconnect the pop-up rod on the faucet from the pivot rod on the drain by sliding the spring clip off. Unscrew the pivot rod nut and remove pivot rod that sticks out of drain. Now your plunger is disengaged and you can pull it out of the top of the drain. Next, using big pliers you loosen the hex nut under the sink. Uscrew nut all the way down until it reaches where the pivot nut screws on. Pry rubber gasket and friction washer out of the sink all the way down. Now push entire assembly upward. If the drain is not old, you don't have hard water, was properly installed, and the stars align properly, you can just unscrew the chrome ring by hand. You may have to use the big pliers to unscrew it, or, hopefully not, sawzalls are awful handy. Good luck.

I have john deer sabre 18 horse i have a snow blade but cant get on right


My name is Dane and I'll try to help you with your problem. I have given you the basic instructions here for mounting most john deere snow blades.

Here is a link to the parts diagram for the blade too.

You need to remove the mower deck from the machine, and you may have to remove the front bumper as well.

First, install the mounting brackets on the tractor. Align the holes in each mounting bracket with the holes in the tractor frame. Install using the kit that comes with the mounting bracket. Don't tighten this yet.

Next you should install the pivot support. Insert the pins on the right and left hitch plates into the notches on the mounting brackets. Install the pins and tighten the screws on those mounting brackets now.

Next you should Install the blade. Align the holes in the pivot support with the second holes from the end of the push channel assembly. Insert the channel pin and washer and secure with the spring locking pin.

Install the lift handle. Slide the lift handle rod into the end hole in the push channel assembly. Insert the lift link pin in the pivot support bracket into the lift handle rod. Add the washers and locking pin.

Now, Iistall the blade pivot rod. Either end of the blade pivot rod goes through the blade pivot shaft. The other end goes through the lift handle tube. Secure both ends with locking pins.

Lubricate the lift handle rods and pivot points.

Install the rear tire chains and wheel weights.

I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thanks! Dane

Can't remove moen bathroom faucet assembly to replace it. can't figure out how to seperate it from the sink...

If you are dealing with the type of Moen faucet I think you are, what you need to do is remove the pop-up rod. do this by loosening the locking bolt on the linkage under the sink and pulling the rod out from the top. Once the rod is out you will need to find the correct size allen wrench which goes into the center hole. there is a mounting bolt in there that needs to be unscrewed. Easy when you know how.

I installed a new sink and pop up drain assembly. But the drain drains very slow because the stopper does not go high enough. I have tried adjusting the pop up assembly.

make sure that the piece going in to the drain that moves your stopper up and down is all the way in the hole on the bottom of the stopper once that is in hold the rod down so your stop is up then attach it to the piece attached to your rod this should solve your problem good luck
