Rca arcing and hissing

Premtech, you helped me with my anote? cap problem- I followed ur instructions and am waiting for rubber sealant to dry. I heard a tiny spark when I pryed the cap off but no big shock. I cleaned it up a little, sealed it, and put it back on. It seems I'm missing a step? was I supposed to replace it? or follow it back to the flyback transformer? I basically took it off and put it back on, is that right?

    Bill, I used rubber sealant-probabley not good right? I called 3 places abput HV-mouser and they suggested rubber sealant. Will it work or should I definatley hold out for HV? By-the-way, thanks for taking the time to steer me in the right direction-it's actually very interesting-lots of parts to screw up. Thanks again

    Bill, here is what i figured out. I tuned off the lights to see where it was sparking. It's not up by the cap but much lower on one of the green boards. there is this brown 2" cylinder that has it's top blown off. It has small writing on it (KHA-250 V underneith that it says 100 then a weird squiggle then F. It has even smaller letters like 105 D C then (8) 2 7 F or something like that. Wiggled it a little to see if it would pull out-must be soldered in. Any Ideas besides I'm screwed?

Just remove it - put a small ring of HV putty on and reseal the cap making sure to get the anode inside the well securely...
There is no drying time to HV putty, are you sure that's what you used?? It's a clear and rubbery kinda like silly putty, easy to form.

Does the stop leak work by swelling the rubber seals or by detecting air and stopping up the leak?


It depends what sort of stop leak you're talking about. There's different types.

Something for a leaking windshield rubber works by filling a gap and then becomes hard, similar to how bathroom sealant works.

An oil stop-leak works by penetrating and 'refurbishing' -swelling- dried gaskets and then hardening when it contacts the air on the outside of the engine block.

Some types of coolant sealant work by allowing particles to congregate/collect around a small hole in a radiator, blocking the hole. The particles harden due to the air/heat to form a plug. This type of sealant can also block your heater matrix, and they do not repair rubber hoses (hoses must be replaced if leaking).

A cylinder head sealant works by either depositing particles in a small crack in the head or gasket, or in the case of a modern head sealant, it uses polymers.

If you have a slight oil leak - slight - on an engine or auto box, try a sealant. If it's anything more than a slight weep, then gasket/seal replacement is the best option.

I broke my rubber door seal loose on the passenger side in the icey weather today. what/how is the cheapest way to repair it? i am not using the remote, because that quit working a month ago after it ran...


Go to you local autoparts retailer you will need little tree clips that go into holes in the rubber seal and in turn push into holes in the door and you will need a tube of weather sealant glue.... Clean the rubber seal on the door and pull out the old tree clips ( tilt them on about a 45 degree angle to get them out don't tear the rubber) next put in the new tree clips you have bought following the same instructions on how you removed the old ones. Finally put sealant glue on the rubber where it contacts the door ( all the way around) and also on the door frame itself where the rubber will contact allow the glue to get tacky on door and rubber (Approx 10 mins) start at one end pushing the rubber back onto the door and inserting the tree clips as you go along when you get to the end viola your done! hope this helps

I'm looking for an estimate of repairs. I have a leak in the upper right side of the windshield which leaks into the front A frame, then down into my passenger foot area. When it rains the mat and floor...


It is possible you have a plugged drain and not a seal leak around your windshield; a hands on diagnostic is the best bet and so is a second opinion!! I feel you should try to locate the leak yourself by first putting some colored napkins in a few places like along the side of the windshield post, under the dash, at the floor to side wall, etc - anyplace water could be entering the passenger compartment.Make sure your door is closed securely and run a garden hose at about half flow for 1 minute over the top of the windshield. Wait 2 minutes then check your napkins for wetness. If none present then flow water over the top of the door 1 minute, wait, then check your napkins again. The problem may be in the door weather seal and not the windshield and this test should help you pinpoint the problem area. If during these tests you find wet napkins, try to follow the wetness up as high as you can and see if there is a bubble between the rubber and the body of the car. You can buy a tube of windshield sealant from an auto parts store or another store like Walmart and try to seal it up yourself. If there is a bubble or lump, break it off with a screwdriver and back fill that area with the windshield sealant. Dry the affected area with a blow drier on high for at least 5 minutes before applying the sealant so it can stick - it won't adhere to a wet surface and you can wipe off any excess with a napkin. Give the sealant 24 hours to cure and retest. Other than this, the sealant around the windshield will need to be replaced. I hope this helps!!

The black cap inside the toilet is leaking? Is there a seal? How do I remove the cap?


If the black cap you are referring to is a tank bolt, then follow the instructions as follow:

If you cannot tighten them, then they will need to be replaced. Turn off the water supply valve, flush the toilet and bail out as much residual water as possible. Remove the old bolts and separate the tank from the bowl. Replace the old tank gasket and refasten the tank with new bolts, properly placing rubber washers symetrically. An added precaution that I use is (after drying the inside of the tank well) is applying a dab of clear elastomeric sealant to the top of each bolt head, working it past the edges of the bolt heads onto the tank. Allow the sealant to cure as per directions. Open the supply valve slowly and allow the tank to fill. Inspect the tank bolt holes for leaks

Samsung 32" crt tv, hissing sound


G'Day,
You will find that the Flyback assembly or the EHT cap connected to the top of you picture tube is "leaking". The hissing sound is arcing caused by insulation breakdown in the plastic block of the flyback assembly, a faulty tuning capacitor in the horizontal output stages, or if you live in a humid climate, dust that may have accumulated on the back of the tube/high tension stages , will create a track of conductivity when it takes on moisture from the air. The hissing sound is the air being ionised by the high voltages present.
There is in excess of 25,000 volts in these areas, and repairs to your set should be done by a professional with good experience if you are not familiar with the problem I am speaking of, particularly about the rubber cap connected to the tube. Voltages remain present here even after the set has been turned off, and will remain so for an extended period. The picture tube needs to be discharged correctly before any attempts to repair problems here are made.
I am happy to discuss things further if you wish.
regards robotek

USED MOPAR ENGINE SEALANT, BUT VALVE COVER IS STILL LEAKING


You did everything correctly "by the book", but I add one thing...Once the orininal application has set up, I add another thin layer, then immediately set the cover in place on the engine can't slide it around or wipe it across anything when doing this though or it won't work. I then tighten the cover lightly, wait a couple of hours then re-tighten.Follow a pattern like torquing a cylionder head so it goes down evenly.
On yours, did you try just tightening up on it a bit?

Crank shaft movement


did you check the pulley on the crank shaft ??
is it warped ?? ( bent )
because i do not think that the truck will run with the crankshaft moving.....back and forth.
so in any case you have a lot of work to do.
here is how to remove the crank shaft.
REMOVAL
  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the oil pump from the rear main bearing cap.
  3. Remove the vibration damper.
  4. Remove the timing chain cover.
  5. Identify bearing caps before removal. Remove bearing caps and bearings one at a time.
  6. Lift the crankshaft out of the block.
  7. Remove and discard the crankshaft rear oil seals.
  8. Remove and discard the front crankshaft oil seal.
INSTALLATION
  1. Lightly oil the new upper seal lips with engine oil.
  2. Install the new upper rear bearing oil seal with the white paint facing towards the rear of the engine.
  3. Position the crankshaft into the cylinder block.
  4. Lightly oil the new lower seal lips with engine oil.
  5. Install the new lower rear bearing oil seal into the bearing cap with the white paint facing towards the rear of the engine.
    1. Apply 5 mm (0.20 inch) drop of Loctite 518, or equivalent, on each side of the rear main bearing cap. DO NOT over apply sealant or allow the sealant to contact the rubber seal. Assemble bearing cap to cylinder block immediately after sealant application.
    2. lb align the bearing cap, use cap slot, alignment dowel and cap bolts. DO NOT remove excess material after assembly. DO NOT strike rear cap more than 2 times for proper engagement.
    3. Clean and oil all cap bolts. Install all main bearing caps. Install all cap bolts and alternately tighten to 115 Nm (85 ft. lbs.) torque.
    4. Install oil pump.
    5. Install the timing chain cover.
    6. Install the vibration damper.
      1. Apply Mopar Silicone Rubber Adhesive Sealant, or equivalent, at bearing cap to block joint to provide cap to block and oil pan sealing. Apply enough sealant until a small amount is squeezed out. Withdraw nozzle and wipe excess sealant off the oil pan seal groove.
      2. Install new front crankshaft oil seal.
      3. Immediately install the oil Dan.
if you have an email address i can send some images

Arcing between pins on CRT


Hi.

Your problem is due to moisture in the the Crt base socket you will need to replace the white plastic crt plug I have tried to clean & dry them out but it never fully corrects problem.

As far as the pins & glass crt neck goes clean them with Isopropyl alcohol this will thoroughly clean all the carbon off.
