Clutch removal tool?


not recommended, if you use a impact the end of the crank and bolts and nuts are small you can snap off the bolt or worse snap the crank end
also many drums are held on with a snap ring and then the clutch can
be held in place with a both or nut on the end and there may be set screws on some models as well
as in most saws the drum and sprockets are what wear first, normally you can just replace the drum and sockets before you have to replace the entire clutch assembly, so if you have never replaced the drum or sprokets before once you remove the drum if the clutch spring is not broke, just replace the drum and sprocket will save you a bunch of money

Wing tail light? Depends , you can get it from the dealer or just Google what light you need, like 2000 Ford tail light? But I guess what year your truck is a secret.

I cant seem to get replacement wings on my flytech dragon fly how?


I'm having the same problem. My 7 & 8 year olds boys got given one each and the wings broke when they were putting them together. wowwee.com sells them for about 15euros. I'm not paying that much, I'm sure the toys didn't cost that much! I think they're just an obsolete toy now. Have you had any luck?

I am trying to change a headlight. I can't can not


The headlight assembly (1993 Grand Caravan) is held in place with three plastic "wing nuts" that rotate on the ball-end (front end) of the adjusting screws. One "adjusting screw" (the one on the bottom, inboard side) is not for adjusting, just for mounting. The other two adjusting screws take a torx T15 in the front end of the screw.
Removing the headlight assembly is somewhat of a trick - it seems like it takes a special tool to reach the "wing nut" and turm it 1/4 turn (90 degrees) CLOCKWISE (so the "wings" are vertical). When all three of these mounting "wing nuts" have the wings vertical, the headlight assembly just pulls forward and off these mounting nuts. Place the new assembly back over the "nuts", turn the 3 "wing nuts" another quarter turn, and the new unit is mounted. Probably not even a need to re-adjust the headlights, but you should check.
The PROBLEM, is that it appears to take a special tool to reach and turn these wing nuts without breaking them (yes, the old ones get brittle). I tried a socket (did not work), and then long needle-nose pliers (broke one wing nut), then a 1/2" open-end wrench (which at least worked). However, pushing the new assembly back over the wing nuts, I broke another wing nut. So, I broke 2 of the 6, and one was broken when I started.
Now I need to find replacements for these "wing nuts" ... any ideas where to get them?
Of course I can use some washers, some nuts to fit the fine-threaded adjustment screw, and some sort of bushing (maybe cut a short piece of rubber tubing to fit over the adjustment screw). Place double nuts (second nut to lock the first in place) and a washer, then the bushing onto the adjusting screw, then the headlamp assembly onto the bushing, then add another washer, and two more nuts (not too tight) to lock it onto the adjusting screw (which must still be free to rotate). Repeat for each of the 6 mounting points. I have not tried this yet, but ... it should work.

Fabricate a tool to turn the "wing nuts" using a piece of 3/8 inch ID tubing which you file or cut 1/8 inch by 1/8 inch notches on each side of a diameter line.

Broken glass jug on kitchenaid blender model 5ksb2aer4


Look at the underside of the blade shaft. The metal wing nut on the end of the shaft secures the blade assembly to cream coloured plastic blade base. The wing nut also transmits the drive from the rubber coupling on your blender to the blade shaft. The wing nut has a LEFT HAND thread.
The left hand thread ensures the blade assembly does not unscrew during normal blender use.

Firstly disassemble the blender blade assembly. Place a folded tea towel over the blades and hold the blades firmly. If you do not use a tea towel you may cut yourself.

Grip the wing nut with your other hand and unscrew it CLOCKWISE.
Remove the wing nut. You can now remove the blade from the plastic base.

Put the blade assembly in the new jug and offer up the plastic base from under the jug so that the blade shaft protudes enough for you to install the wing nut.

Screw the wing nut ANTI-CLOCKWISE to secure the blades to the plastic base.

Do not over tighten the wing nut; you may have to replace your jug again at some point.

Broken part on MT 8180 looking for replacement part


ACE Hardware.  What you are looking fore is a "wing bolt" as opposed to a wing nut.  They have them in both SAE and Metric.  At least our local store does.
