I have a countax E36 which had the same problem. If you remove the axle of the sweeper you will most likely find the square axle damaged at the end. I ordered a new one from and had it over night €28.00 all in. When replacing it, you may need to install washers to take up the wear on the bearing eyes ! Hope it works for you

This may depend on which side of the support bearing the slip joint is on the tail shaft. If it is on the diff side of the bearing then the problem will be that the slip joint has seized and every time the diff rises or falls from load or bumps in the road instead of slipping it pushes the whole shaft forward or pulls back to allow for the changed length of the distance from diff pinion and rear of gear box. If the slip joint is in the rear of the gear box then you may have to alter the angle that the mount has to the drive shaft. On a Mazda I had I found that the mounting plate was square to the chassis but the bearing needed to be about 3 degrees off to compensate for the drive shaft angle. This meant that the ball bearing was under mis-aligned load from the hard rubber and caused premature wear of the bearing

My Countax 20/50 HE electric sweeper system wont lift up

Hi Try unplugging the connector that runs from the tractor unit behind the seat to the lift mechanism. Its a little black connector and sometimes it becomes disconnected just push it together hard.
Other wisw it may be the switch on the dashboard broken.

How to remove the inner bearing front left axle shaft

I'm trying to remove the axle nut on my 1999 Dodge Ram 2500. I can't remember if they are left or right hand threads. Any suggestions? I'm working alone on this issue, trying to get to the wheel hub...

sould be standard left to loosen,, make sure you soak it with PB blaster or Kroil,, I've spun the nuts, before(plow trucks) and had to buy the stub shaft(dealer only $$$) and new U joints,, Keep soaking it!!! Hub bearings are pricey also,, good luck,, You will have to use the jaws to pull it off, and the bolts on the back side, soak those,, I ve separated the hubs before, and then i ve had some come off easy,, Good luck,, total fix $350-$1200 per side. keep soaking, is all i'm saying...

Removal of broken axel broke of by wheel

not a problem,
jack up your car and block it on side frames,you need to have room to work at rear pun-kin,get a pan for rear gear lube to drain in,remove the bolts on the rear of the housing,yours I think should have 12 holding on inspection cover,When you have removed cover,put car in neutral so you can turn the drive shaft,you will see side gear on left and right,in between those side gears is a round shaft ,turn the drive shaft around until you see at one end of that shaft is a 5/16 bolt holding the shaft in .Ok here comes the part you must be very careful!!!!!!
loosen the 5/16 bolt completely but don't pull it out yet,turn drive shaft until the shaft and bolt are pointing down where the shaft will be able to just clear the housing,ok now hold the pin from falling out with your left thumb and remove the bolt with your right hand,
let the shaft come completely out,
"most important" Don't let anyone turn any of the rear wheels or it will spin the spider gears right up and out!!!!!
Go to the broken axle side of the car or have someone who is helping do it,have them push the axle shaft in towards you,if your watching the axle being pushed in you will see a big horseshoe clip fall down,that is all that holds GM axles in!
once the clip falls you can push the axle out some with your fingers and pull it the rest of the way out,
when you reinstall your new axle you need to get that horseshoe clip that fell,insert the axle without turning it,push in it as far as it will go,then you slide the horseshoe clip in the grooved out spot on the axle,hold in in place while someone pulls the axle out where clip will seat it's self,now slide shaft back in with bolt hole on bottom,you may have to wiggle it a little,when you have it in far enough to get the bolt back in go ahead and tighten the bolt,the rest is cleaning the cover gasket off and installing a new one and tighten all the bolts the same and refill,don't forget to put your car back in park before you let it down,
good luck

Drive belt falls off mower

You need to inspect the pullies holding the belt, and the bearings that run the pullies. If they are bad they will jump the belt.

When I engage the mower blades,It makes a loud noise under the mower deck and the right side cut lower than the left side leaving a pattern in my yard.Please help grass is getting tall

It sounds a lot like the balancer is loose. You can most likely fix this yourself, here's how: pull the spark plug wire off the plug, tilt the lawnmower up to expose the blade, rock the blade to see if it is loose on the shaft, if it is all you have to do is tighten the bolt so the blade and the balancer are flush to the shaft. That should fix your noise and uneven cut problem. If that doesn't fix it, let me know here, ok? Cheers!

Tine shaft removal for mantis 2 cycle tiller

Put the tiller in a vise clamping on the bottom of worm gear housing. Remove worm gear housing cover. Clamp the worm gear at the top with a vise grip (I think Kuya Jon is correct in that you could skip this step because the transmission won't move when unscrewing, but I did it anyway just in case). Put a pipe wrench on the left tine shaft and unscrew it like it was a normal bolt. It's in there tight and it will take some force. When I unscrewed mine, the left bearing seal retainer, left bearing seal, and left bearing all came out with it. I just needed to replace the seals. I went to the right side, and with a screw driver carefully pried out the retainer. Then it's easy to just pull out the right seal with your finger. Put a new right seal in and insert the right retainer. Make sure the retainer is facing the correct way. I used a block of wood to tap mine in once I had it positioned because I was afraid to hit the retainer with a hammer. Now I put the tine shaft back in while holding the worm gear with the vise grip. Screw the shaft as far as it will go by hand and then go the rest of the way with a pipe wrench. Now came the tricky part. The right bearing did not slide right in. There was some resistance. I had to use a 1/2" threaded pvc pipe (not sure it needs to be threaded but that's what worked for me) longer than the tine shaft that was sticking out. I slip the pipe over the shaft against the bearing and tapped with a hammer. This drove the bearing in all the way. It needs to go in far enough to leave room for the seal and retainer. The plastic pvc allowed for this. Now put the right seal in. If the outer edge of the seal is only flush with the housing you did not tap the bearing in far enough. I made this mistake on my first try and tried to force the retainer in. Take it from me. It won't work. You will end up ordering another retainer to replace the one you mangled. Once in properly I slid the retainer over the shaft and then put a washer over that to tap against. The block of wood doesn't work on this side because the shaft is in the way. I used my pvc pipe again to tap against the washer and, wala, it worked like a charm. I hope this helps someone. All the other posts really helped me. Thanks!

String ???

Yes, I have a soloution to this "String" problem.
Only because I have repaired mine twice already.
Unscrew the unit and take cover off,you will see the mangled "sting" wich is actually more like aviation cable takes some skill and a pair of steady small hands to fix.
you have to re-thread the wire back into position by hand on the left hand side you will see small wheels where the cable sit's in then rethread the changer post with 4 wheels thred it inside left bottom to outside left top, to over right top to inside bottom right.
I have temporarily fixed it. if you shake or mis handle the unit somehow it will fall off again!!
The reason for this is when the disc's change the guide wire will get looser with age and fall off.
the proper way to fix this is to take a pair of pliers and pull the string out the side where it is fastened pull it tighter to reduce the slack in the cable DO NOT over tighten or it wont change discs at all!!
keep playing around with the cable till it's re-threaded properly, you'll know when it's threaded right and be carfull not to bump it back off while screwing the cover back on. It's almost like re-threading an old movie projector.and if you feel daring you can try my permanant fix suggestion to tighten it some how with pliers to reduce the slack.
I almost threw my CD changer out when that happened i thought it could'nt be fixed but it is possible and it works fine.

I have not permanantly fixed it myself with pliers, but i'm pretty sure it would work, that way you wont have to rethread it everytime it falls off.
