The valve o ring (large) keeps falling out of its place

The large o ring (part 02-72) keeps falling out of its place in the valve. I have replaced the o-ring only to have the samel problem happen again. Any suggestions to prevent this from happening as this is a gun i bought brand new online and have only used it for about a year.

Whether this is a new or old problem, I'd make sure you have the right o-ring for that location. One actually from the Tippmann kit. If you have that (which it sounds like you do), that is definitely an odd problem. Can you swap that out with someone else that has an A-5? If not check out the local field or airsmith and see if they have one. I haven't come across a valve having that problem but if it's a defect then Tippmann may replace it free, or you may have to replace it either way. Again, a Tippmann certified airsmith can swap it out under warranty possibly if that's the case, or a quick turnaround for a price otherwise.

Good luck!

I have 2005 50HP Mercury. The power trim will not maintain in the up position under power. Replaced small o-ring on relief valve. Worked for short while. Replaced complete relief valve (893929A01), nicked...

the power trim is a simple hydraulic ram/s that hold the angle by having hydraulic oil pressure locked off by the control valve
if it keeps falling down that indicates either a problem control valve ( seat damaged, weak spring, adjustment)or a failed ram/ piston seal or a scored cylinder that is allowing the oil to leak past the piston/s
the relief valve would only come into operation when the unit reaches full extension of the ram/s to prevent overloading of the system
As it operates in adverse conditions, it is possible that there is corrosion in the cylinders allowing the bypass of the hydraulic pressure to happen
discuss the problem with a service center as it will not be an uncommon problem and they may have the answer as to what to repair/replace to fix it

Front axle removal

if it's already split in 2 removing it won't be too hard. You just need a very large impact socket (usually anywhere from 28 to 38 mm), a punch and a hammer, and a good prybar. The part that goes into the spindle need to be unlocked from the groover with the punch and hamme, in some cases you also need to remove the cutter pin, then just unscrew the nut using an impact wrench and the socket. If you don't have an impact wrench or your's isn't strong enough, a good ol' 2-3 foot bar will do the job if you can keep the wheel from spinning using a friend on the brake pedal, or if you can get access to the spindle nut without removing the tire and keeping the car on the ground. As for the the part that goes into the transmission, use the prybar to get it to come out of there, as it usually just stays in place with a snap ring. Make sure the snap ring is still on the shaft so it doesnt fall into the differential and ruin the gears when you put the new shaft back on. Putting the new shaft though will require removing the nuts holding the spinle in place usually to you can get clearance to put it all back in there. In most cases, just removing the ball joint from the spindle will be enough. And also after you put everything back into place, it might be a good idea to get the car aligned, as playing with the spindles can sometimes screw up alignement and cause premature tire wear.

I have just bought a Bosch GDS 18 E Impact Wrench second hand. My question is how do i keep the socket from falling off the anvil.

A hand ratchet wrench uses a ball to hold the socket on the shaft. Impact wrenches use a ring. The ring is needed for the high speeds.
There should be a groove on the end of the socket end. That groove should have a round or flat ring in it. That ring keeps the sockets from falling off. It is missing go to Bosch for a replacement.

The bolt on the bottom of the refrigerator door keeps falling out causing the door to fall off.

you need to buy a bolt washer, its a little flat ring that you put in between the revolving bolt and the head of the screw. this will help rotate the screw while keeping the bolt in place therefore preventing it from always falling off whenever you open / close the door

Zanussi tc7103w condenser dryer-water tank light keeps coming on when tank is empty or nearly empty-have found small plastic float and spring on floor behind dryer-where do they fit?

I had this problem. If you look at the valve on the plastic water tank, you will see that those parts are the same. They fit inside the tumble dryer to shut off the water from flowing onto the floor when the water tank is removed. The white hollow cylinders in the tumble dryer and the water tank push each other open. If you study the water valve on the tank you will see how it is put together. It is all held in place by a little 9mm O ring at the back of the valve. The ring gets tired after a while and pops off. The valve then falls apart and you find the cylinder and spring on the floor and the O ring still inside the dryer. I bought an O ring kit and reassembled the valve inside the dryer using a new ring. You will have to pull the dryer out, turn it upside down and remove the floor to do this

Mountin carbs back on bike need diagram 2 see how it goes on 79 honda goldwing 1000

Not sure if this is what you want.
If the carb rack is fully built up:
1) remove the air cutoff valve from behind the #1 carb. Be careful not to loose the two O rings.
2) remove the CV caps (and springs) from the two right hand carbs
3) the rack will now slide in from the left side. Re-fit the caps and the cut off valve once it's roughly in place and it's easier to attach the throttle cable at this point too.
4) Carefully fit the large O rings between the heads and the intake trumpets: It's very easy to have them fall down into the cylinder head ports!! Use some Vaseline on them if necessary to stick them in place (NOT GREASE!)
5) attach the choke cable and the fuel line to the fuel pump.
6) go over everything and check it. Make sure that the bands on the rubber inlet boots are tight.

Leaking from underneath

make sure valve cover is very tight and o-ring is in place inside the valve.

ensure rubber seal did not fall out of fill hose end (if you removed it )

ensure hose clamps are tight.

ensure the curved hose from the fill valve to the booster is not brittle and cracked.
thats it!

I need to know how to change the transmission fluid in my 1998 bravada

There are a few mays to do this, you could take it to the transmission shop and have them service it or you can do it your self. If you want to replace the transmission fluid and filter you have to drop the transmission oil pan, your going to have to remove the oil pan bolts and shifter linkage to the 4X4 and once the pan is off. Just pull off the oil filter from the valve body and replace the O ring with  the new O rings to ensure the new filter will not fall off from the valve body and then re-install the everything in revers. Once the pan is back on refill the transmission with AFT and test drive. The other way you can drain the system with out the filter replacement is to disconnect the transmission line at the radiator on the passenger side, top by the radiator cap. Connect a hose to the line to a large bucket and start the engine, the fluid will drain fast so be ready to turn the engine off so you don't burn out the front pump. you can also judge how much fluid is in the transmission by the amount of fluid is collected in the bucket. Note: make sure you have a large bucket. Once you think you have drained enough transmission fluid, turn the engine off and re-install the transmission line to the radiator and refill the transmission with AFT. 
Automatic Transmission, 4L60-E Initial Fill..........4.7 liters
Automatic Transmission, Total Fill  4 speed 4L60-E..........10.6 liters

Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have.
