How do you prime the oil pump after rebuild


The oil pump drive is off the intermediate shaft and that is driven by the timing chains. Unless you want to take apart the chains and spin the int shaft itself, there isn' t a good way to prime the motor.
Or just try this:
Just disconnect the bulkhead plug just behind the coil pack, you know the big round thing with all the wires. Crank the engine over a few times, 10-20, reconnect the plug and start the engine.
Or this:
Look on back of block there is a metal cap held on by two bolts. Take that cap off and pull out the top gear then find a socket that fits the top of the oil pump driveshaft. Put it on a power drill with a long extension stick it in the hole onto the driveshaft and spin it, cover top of whole around the extension with a rag so it doesnt spill. This will prime the whole motor, if you do it with head open you can see the oil come up through the lifters

My xbox keeps on reading open tray when i put a disc can any one help me


Mine had the same problem. On mine the spindle wasn't turning the game. It kept trying to then quit and said "Open Tray". The warranty was out so I took it apart opened the dvd drive and took apart the spindle. The grease in the spindle was black, I guess from all the heat. Cleaned it out and put some high temperature grease on spindle shaft and in the hole. It now spins with ease. There are videos on youtube on how to take apart the xbox and to take apart the dvd drive and spindle. Just pay close attention at how tight the screws the hold the spindle down are.I hope this helps.

Oil spilled during shipping


This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.
