What would be the cause of metal shavings in my fuel pump

The pump is a vane pump and it is probably carving itself up inside hence the shavings. Really the only place they can come from if you think about it.

Have 2007 yamaha 115 saltwater series, just bought, planned once and then didnt plane, was told its prop bush slipping, can you explain?

The splined hub on the prop is not solid , there is a rubber or plastic sacrificial piece between the outer and inner portions of the hub. Designed to slip if you hit rocks or run over a rope so you dont ruin your drive or motor, just a prop.

I have a 4o hp outboard marinier and when u give it about half throtal or more it acts like its slipping,

It is most likely a damaged prop. If the gear shift handle is steady while it is slipping, Your prop needs to go to the shop for a re hub. Take a punch and mark the center of the prop (the hub) ,then mark the blade of the prop in alignment. Try it out and see if the marks still line up. If they have moved- the prop is bad.

Plastic metal shavings inside printer

I had a similar problem on an hp-3052. I was getting pieces of plastic that were grey and yellow stuck to my pages and all inside the printer then papaer stared jamming. The problem was the fuser sleve which can be picked up on ebay fairly cheap. The bigger problem is installing the sleve over the fuser. I tried the repair my self and broke the fuser assembly. It's a cheap part but a pro should do the install this is definately not a diy fix.
