Unable to remove bolts for 18983 280zx driveshaft


Hopefully you haven't rounded them off. They should be 12mm NUTS that you are trying to get loose, not bolts. With a good quality open end wrench and managing to fully seat the wrench on the nut (spray a little WD40 on the threads) you can put a fairly large and long screw driver or better, pry bar through the center of the "u" joint. Position the wrench so there is some room for rotation. Put the screw driver or pry bar through the ujoint of the drive shaft to keep it from allowing it to turn while youre applying force to the wrench. Turning the nut in a "counter clockwise" direction" it should come loose. In some cases, if your lucky, you can get a box end wrench on the nut, which is even better because it won't slip off or round the nut. Have fun

How to attach a john deere grass catcher


Make and model are important and would help. Generally they are pretty simple. Some older models you had to bolt a mounting bracket to the rear corner of the frame and then a support slipped into the bracket. Some newer models have a drop in feature (these have rounded ridges on the back of the frame and have horizontal slots cut in them). On these the support bar simply drops into the horizontal slots then a swinging bar slips into 2 holes on the fenders to support the rearward hanging weight. The most important part is getting the right bagger model for your model. If it is a very old model that discharges grass out the back of the deck you may have a hard time finding a bagger at all. If you have a side discharge just make sure you are getting the right version for your tractor. If your tractor has a smooth flat back you need the version that has a bolt on mounting bracket. If it has the rounded vertical humps you need the newer version.

I feel like I'm missing something. I can not attach the handlebars to the bike. I have one long screw, a bolt and some small black cylinder cut on an angle. The instructions are not helpful because...


the cylinder cut on an angle is what the long bolt should bolt to, put the cylinder below the handle bars, and drop the long nut down through the handle bars and into the cylinder, ( the hole in it should be threaded,) only start the bolt so it hangs onto the cylinder, then feed that into the top of the neck hole, where the handle bars slide into,, once the desired height is ok,, tighten that bolt, the cylinder will come up at an angle and tighten the neck and handle bars !! Good Luck

The handelbars on my bicycle are not in line with the frame of the bicycle. How do I correct this?


in the centre of the handlebars you should find a nut - undo it about three whole turns - no more - when the nut (its a bolt really) rises up from the bars
with a wooden hammer (or an ordinary hammer and a block of wood) to prevent damage tap/hit the nut down to the bars and see if the bars now move without turning the forks
If they do - line them up and then tighten the nut up until its really tight - the bars must be locked to the forks for your safety
If the bars don't move undo the nut some more - tap it down and try again - tighten up when finished
Good luck

How to replace a sway bar end links to a 94 intrepid



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The rear suspension on LH platform vehicles is a fully independent suspension. A stabilizer bar (also called a sway bar) is mounted in rubber isolator bushings and connects the rear struts through links. Note that the fuel tank must be removed to remove the stabilizer bar.

CAUTION OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove both rear wheels.

  1. Position a transmission jack under the fuel tank just forward of the crossmember to help support the fuel tank when crossmember is removed.
  2. Remove the four crossmember to frame rail attaching bolts. Remove the fuel tank.
  3. Remove the stabilizer bar to link assembly attaching nuts and remove the bar and isolator bushings as an assembly from the vehicle. Inspect the isolator bushings for damage or excessive wear and replace, if necessary.

To install:
  1. Inspect for broken or distorted retainers and bushings. If bushing replacement is required, replacement bushings can be installed by locating the split in the bushing, prying open and removing the defective bushing from around the stabilizer bar.
  2. Install the stabilizer bar and isolator bushings back into the vehicle as an assembly making sure bar is centered in vehicle so it doesn't contact other suspension components.
  3. Install stabilizer bar attaching link onto stabilizer bar. Install new link to bar attaching nuts and tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

Replace the sway bar bracket bolt with new after loosening or removing them. Only use original equipment bolts as replacements.
  1. Install the fuel tank back onto the vehicle.
  2. Position the crossmember on frame rails and install four mounting bolts. Tighten attaching bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  3. Remove transmission jack from under the fuel tank.
  4. Install the rear wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95-100 ft. lbs. (129-135 Nm).
  5. Lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks.
  7. Check and reset the rear wheel toe to specifications as required.

I have a Poulan 18" chainsaw. Dispite my best efforts to tighten the chain, it keeps slipping off of the bar. I can use it for about 30 seconds, then the chain slips off.


Make sure the chain brake is off (pull it toward you), then remove the bar mounting nut(s)/bolt(s) and the remove the side cover, bar, and chain. Clean the oil passages in the rear of the bar including two small passages that run from the larger holes out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove and make sure the end sprocket turns freely and is well oiled. Clean the engine face where the bar fits, then start the engine. Oil should ooze out of a small port in the engine case. If ok, then lay out the chain so that it can be inspected for bent links, dry/sticking joints, or missing/badly worn drive teeth. Inspect the sprocket on the clutch outer drum component for wear or damaged teeth. Make sure the pitch of the chain teeth match those of the drive sprocket (is this a new chain?). Check the hub bearing of the clutch drum for obvious wear. If all looks good, fit the chain around the clutch sprocket, then slip the bar into the the engine mounting space and work the chain over the entire bar. When setting the outer cover, make sure the adjuster tang fits into the related bar hole, then attach the clamp nut(s)/bolt(s), run up finger tight. Use the adjuster to set the chain tension--it should just pull the lower part of the chain up to the bar plus a little more. Check that you can move the chain by hand without any binding, then tighten the clamp bolts/nuts firmly. Recheck that the chain is properly tensioned. If not, re-loosen the clamp fasteners and re-tension the chain. When the clamp fasteners are tight, the tension must be rechecked. Hope this long-winded response helps!

Need to replace front mudguard on vespa px 125e 2003 modle


To replace the mudguard is easy enough but takes a good while.
Remove case from the handlebars (mirrors first then screws and split).
Remove the bolt that holds the handle bars to the steering column and remove the handlebars.
At the top of the steering column you need to unscrew the round nuts that tighten the steering column.
You need to disconnect the brake hose and cable (later you will need to bleed and refil the brake fluid).
Then you need to lift the frame up from the front so that the steering column slips out, be careful not to lose the bearings.
The mudguard is held on with (i think) 2 bolts. remove these and then lift the mudguard up the steering column. drop the new one in it's place and put everythiing back together in the reverse order you took them off
