    I used a small amount of silicone grease on the o-ring. Unscrew the back of the shaft (I used a pair of channel lock pliers to start it.) Remove the pump shaft. Apply a small amount of silicone grease to the o-ring/end of the shaft assembly. Insert into pump housing and screw the shaft cap back on.

Spa pump k55mygrd-8367

Most common and likely situation with this,... mechanical pump shaft seal has failed. This allowed water to enter into the electrical motor and lubrication from the front bearing had been washed away. The purpose of the shaft seal is to keep the water OUT of the motor!
Now as motor spins, bearings with less lubrication gets a lot hotter!
And... When metal gets hot, it gets soft! What was once perfectly round and lubricated, is now getting oblong or square and not lubricated. Square bearings don't spin well and are not as quiet as round bearings! Hence your loud noise. Oil on the shaft will do nothing. You either need to replace both bearings, front and back, and absolutely replace the shaft seal or, replace the motor and the shaft seal.

Replacing Kawasaki kx 80 kick start return spring

Hi, easy job, if your bike is waer cooled, you dont say how old it is the old bikes were air cooled, undo all the water pipes attached to the r/h case all the water will escape, you can leave the oil inside the gearbox, if you lay the bike on its left hand side, lift the engine and block it up to make sure gear lever is not resting on the ground, as this will disengage when you remove the clutch cover on the r/hand side, undo all the fixing screws from the cover remove kickstart lever, tap the cover gently to loosen the cover and remove when loose, if the case will not come off check further for screws, sometimes hide inside water pumps etc, once you are ready to remove the cover, keep the kickstart shaft pushed inermost so that it stays located within the engine, once ready fully observe the location of spring mountins within the engine and replace the spring

Heater will not start. When plugged in, it just produces a buzzing sound. Kerosene is full, and fuses are good. What can I do?


Check for power to fan motor.....if there is power and motor does not go then the motor is bad...

I have a yamaha yz426f that leaks water all the time from a small hole in the right hand side of the head whats the fix? it starts has awsome power but obviously needs looking at

I have a 2001 YZ426F and I had the same problem. The reason why is leaking because the water pump seals needs replacement and so the water pump shaft. You can still ride it, but you run the risk of overheating your bike. I recommend replacement of the water pump seals and shaft and you are good to go!

The pull cord on the mower is frozen after several times of pulling it.

The drive shaft might need to be lubricated. If the shaft won't turn, you won't be able to pull the cord.

Try turning the mower on its side (making sure all of the caps are on so you don't spill gas or oil) and lubricating the drive shaft with WD-40 or 3-in-1 (or another similar lubricating oil). Coat the shaft where it disappears into the housing of the mower, and turn the blade by hand -- carefully, so you don't cut yourself -- to work the oil in. After turning the blade a few times, add some more oil to the shaft and turn it more. It should become easier to turn. Then turn the mower back onto its wheels and try the pull cord... it should pull easily now.

Good luck!

Before stripping the gearbox be sure it isnt just the gearshift pedal rotating slightly on its shaft. The splines on the shaft will ruin the pedal if its not tightened correctly.
Otherwise it could be the gear selector mechanism. The spring on the shift claw or detent arm may be broken.
Check it out by rotating the rear wheel whilst the bike is turned off & on its main stand, then select each gear by hand with the pedal.

Good Luck
Hope this helps.

I have an IBM Selectric III that has been stored for a couple of years. Before storage it worked fine, but now it just idles when powered up and nothing operates. I assume this means it needs lubrication....

Typically a machine that has been out of use, but was previously working may just need some lubrication on the motor centrifugal clutch assembly, but the entire machine probably would need lubrication also. You can first try to hand cycle the machine by grabbing the shaft that the carrier travels on and rotating it towards the (top to rear) rotation. This shaft rotates on revolution per print cycle and at rest the slot is slightly towards the rear of the machine. If you must lubricate the machine, then remove the cover. Lift the lid, place each hand of platen knobs and with thumbs, push down on release latches, after platen is out of machine, reach inside left and right cover and release the top cover latches and pull the cover straight UP to remove. Use 10 weight oil on motor bushings and centrifugal clutch hub (motor shaft).

My Janome 10000 has been sitting idle for about 6 months and I can hardly turn the hand wheel. Is there a place to oil or grease the machine to allow easier turning?

Remove the top cover (3 screws) and lubricate with good quality thin lubricant the top shaft running horizontally through the machine. This haft has 2 bushes and is a common source of seizing, especially at the handwheel end.
If this doesn't cure the problem have it serviced by a technician (there are numerous lube points inside the machine and these should be adressed every 12 - 24 months.

I'm replacing the impeller and seal assembly on a Hayward 3/4 HP Max-Flo pump as the original impeller broke at the shaft. I had to remove the impeller thread assy. inside the seal by splitting it as there...

First remove seal plate and mounting plate on motor. The front end bell of the motor is alunimun and is probally corroded, you will need to scrape most of this corrosition off the front of motor and then wire brush this clean. A coat of paint will not hurt at this point or coat or coat in a good pool lubricant to stop corrosion in the future. This calcium will build to the point of warpin seal plate and tweaking impeller shaft and it will quite often crack the seal also. As far as reassembly hand tighten only. If the pump has the motor it came with you have to shut the power off at the breaker and carefully use a 3/8 open end wrench to hold the back of the motir shaft. If the motor has been replaced you will need to check with the manifctuer.
