    Thanks, the nut is tight. It's just the handle itself that wobbles at the shaft on the outside of the tank.

    Also, the flush handle and lever contraption is brand new. Thanks.

  • gordon643 Oct 02, 2009

    Thanks. There's a phillips set screw on the handle, but it's tight. I checked that after I removed the plastic wrapping from the new handle unit. (The old handle that I replaced wobbled the same way)

You will need to check the nut that holds the handle on to see if it is tight. If this does'nt work you will need to install a new one.

    Look at the handle to see if there is a set screw that holds the handle tight.

Fluidmaster Dual Flush Valve S2DBL won't flush.

Fluidmaster S2DBL Dual flush valve - would not flush
The dual flush wouldn't work at all. So I slid the lid off part B (lever mounting base) and found the ball end of flush cable was not in the mating hole on lever arm. With needle nose pliers I pulled and pushed the ball into the hole and slide lid back on till it snapped. Snapped B to C (handle) - problem solved!

How do i fix a wobbly door handle?

Wobbly door handles are the result of loosened screws / bolts. ON side x sides, there is usually trim above and below the door handles that can be slid off away from the handles to expose these screws.

Have to hold down toil handle for 4 secs to flush

Assuming we are talking about a standard flush toilet, it sounds like the internal flush actuator lever is hitting the top of the toilet on the inside. Remove the lid, hold the exterior handle. and carefully bend the lever down a little. Also make sure the lever hasn't slipped or is loose. Put the lid back on try again. Repeat until the toilet flushes with the lid on.

The handle is loose. It's a single lever control. The mechanism the level connects to still works fine. No leaks, but the handle is now quite wobbly, and I don't know how to tighten it. Do I pry out that...

Remove the plastic red and blue insert or what ever color yours is under the handle in the front. Tighten the set screw with an allen wrench. Be careful not to over tighten or the screw will break off.

1965-transmission feels loose and shaky when i use shifter

If the shift lever (the part you use to change gears) feels like it's wobbling too much from side to side then the bushings in it's mount are worn out. Rebuild kits are available from most Classic Mustang supply houses like CJ Pony Parts, Macs and others. This is a simple repair that does not require dropping the transmission. Remove the console and/or shifter plate. This exposes the shift lever mount. A couple of wrenches and 20 minutes and you're done. Don't forget some white lithium grease. Expect to pay between 20 and 30 bucks depending on which shifter and transmission you have.

Once installed according to directions, i can't get it to work pr

There is two different types of handles. You have a front mount and a side mount. It sounds as though you might have bought one that is for a front mount instead. Also some toilets are brand specific and you are forced to buy OEM parts instead of generic ones. If the handle is metal you could try bending it to get the "swing" you need. But if you do that, you won't be able to take it back for a refund if it doesn't work. Good luck

Cannot open door from inside on front driverside

29 cent part my fix your problem. There is a nipple on the interior door lock lever that fits into a slot on the door handle lever. Look at passenger side to compare. The nipple is covered with a plastic spacer that may come off. The spacer keeps the lock nipple snug in the handle lever slot; pull the handle lever, it engages the lock lever, opening door. I bought a .29 cent aluminum spacer (#8x1/4 x 1/4) from Orchard hardware. Take needle nose pliers and slip the spacer on, then super glue. Unfortunately if lock lever (where riveted) is badly worn, then it may pivot upward instead of perpendicular to the door, thus defeating new spacer. But you may now be able to open door by pulling handle lever and lock lever at the same time. If you need to replace door handle, others on this site have suggested that you not replace metal frame that door handle is mounted on, but drill out rivets that hold door handle mount.
