SOURCE: Does a left-rear shock absorber

The hole that you refer to would have held the upper strut mount. This piece is part of the strut assembly which includes the coil spring. If you attempt the replacement of this mount yourself, it will require the use of a coil spring compressor (clamshell type which you can rent from certain auto parts stores or tool rental centers). You will have to remove the complete strut assembly from the car. In your case, what's left is the lower retaining bolt. You'll have to use great caution when compressing the spring in order to remove the nut that holds the upper mount in place. The spring is under a great deal of preloaded pressure, that if released can cause bodily damage. Once you remove the upper nut, you can replace the mount, or mounting plate itself. If you don't want to tackle this job yourself. I can tell you that the typical shop will charge you around 2 hrs labor to replace this part. (hourly rates vary) The cost of parts is extra naturally. Most shops I've worked for won't install parts other than those purchased through the shop. You may get lucky though. Buying your own parts is always cheaper, because you don't have to pay for the mark up. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Need instructions for Barrecrafters ski rack

We figured this one out today, after pounding, twisting, sliding, gerunding, etc.

It will not slide backward (as a safety mechanism, of course) unless your latches (the ones that connect / clamp onto the car) are completely loose. That means, that looking at the rack from the end, you'll see this oblong deal that you'll use to tighten the rack to a car. As you turn it clockwise the rack will tighten, right?

Ok. Just make sure that that guy is as loose as he gets, and your piece will slide back just fine.

you dont have to take it off. remove the 2 15mm bolts and pry the bracket sideways w/ a prybar. This shortens your time. You most likely have a 90amp alternator so it should be small enough to slide through.

How do you replace the upper shock absorber tower on a fj62 ?


You will need to grind the rivets out and remove the old mount, you can use one of 3 methods to attach a replacement.
1. Drill out the holes, get captive nuts welded into the chassis rail and use high tensile bolts to attach the mount.
2. Find someone with the correct equipment to re-rivet the mount
3. Weld the mount on, This may or may not be possible depending on the vehicle regulations in your area.

Am looking at your 4 bike hitch rack. Need to kow if it will hold a woman's style bike? One that does not have the top cross bar.


WE don't see what you're disussing and WE don't market anything. We advise.

To your question: they make adapters for non-standard bike frames like the so-called women's style to provide a 'top tube' for hanging on a bike carrier.


Google "bicycle adapter bar" or look on eBay.

For example... http://cgi.ebay.com/Allen-Tension-Bar-Bicycle-Cross-Bar-Adaptor-BLACK-900B-/220782155858?pt=Cycling_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3367a45852

Need assembly manuel for Jenny Lind 012614 where can I find it online?? Every website takes me to another I am very frustrated....didn't think it would be such a ordeal to locate a manuel online???? Is...


Evenflo Jenny Lind Crib has been recalled.

When you call to get the kit to fix the problem (800) 356-2229 you could ask Evenflo directly!

Here are instructions without a manual...

1. Lay the headboard on the floor in front of you with the bracket holes and model number facing you. Use 2 ¾-inch wood screws to attach the L-bracket and the latch bracket to headboard. The L-bracket has 3 holes and attaches to the holes on the lowest section of the headboard. The latch bracket only has 2 holes and goes directly beneath the metal bracket for the mattress that is already attached. It should face toward the center of the headboard. Once you're done, complete the same procedure on the right side of the headboard. Then do the same for the footboard.

2. Stand the headboard up so you can attach the rails to it. First, place the cross dowel (the small piece of wood with a hole in the side of it) into the hole on the underside of the top rung of the rail. Then put a second dowel in the top side of the bottom rung. Line the left rail up with the headboard at a 90-degree angle, placing it in the brackets you just installed, and insert a 2 13/16-inch machine screw into each of the 2 holes on the front side of the headboard (the side that will face outward). Tighten each screw with your screwdriver until it hits the cross dowel. Then turn the cross dowel clockwise to lock it in. Do the same for the right side and then for the footboard.

3. Slide the mattress platform (the bottom of the crib) into the stabilizer rails (easy to distinguish, since they are the same size as the sides of the platform), putting the longer ones on the sides and the shorter ones on the ends. It will slide in easily. Use 5 ¾-inch screws to attach the hanger brackets to the corners of the platform. The holes are predrilled and you can only put the bracket on one way to match them up, so there is little worry that you will attach it wrong.

4. Put the support brackets (the straight, flat ones) on top of the predrilled holes in the underside of the stabilizer rails. Screw them in with ¾-inch wood screws. Then place the hanger brackets in the slots that were preinstalled on the headboard and footboard. Choose the level that will suit you best. Evenflo recommends the top two for infants.

5. Snap a caster (the round disc) on the bottom of each foot of the crib. Check that all your screws are tight to keep your baby safe.

My Front left tire is tilted inward and underneath the truck i found one of the support bars that run's across is broken off on the left side. I looked around the wheel and found that no metal was bent so...


General Description
The front suspension allows each wheel to compensate for changes in the road surface without affecting the opposite wheel. Each wheel independently connects to the frame with a steering knuckle, ball joint assemblies, and upper and lower control arms.
The control arms specifically allow the steering knuckles to move in a three-dimensional arc. Two tie rods connect to steering arms on the knuckles and an intermediate rod. These operate the front wheels.
The two-wheel drive vehicles have coil chassis springs. These springs are mounted between the spring housings on the frame and the lower control arms. Double, direct acting shock absorbers are inside the coil springs. The coil springs attach to the lower control arms and offer ride control.
The upper part of each shock absorber extends through the upper control arm frame bracket. This bracket has two grommets, two grommet retainers, and a nut.
A spring stabilizer shaft controls the side roll of the front suspension. This shaft is mounted in rubber bushings that are held by brackets to the frame side rails. The ends of the stabilizer shaft connect to the lower control arms with link bolts. Rubber grommets isolate these link bolts. Rubber bushings attach the upper control arm to a cross shaft. Frame brackets bolt the cross shaft.
A ball joint assembly is riveted to the outer end of the upper control arm. A rubber spring in the control arm assures that the ball seats properly in the socket. A castellated nut and a cotter pin join the steering knuckle to the upper ball joint.
The inner ends of the lower control arm have pressed-in bushings. The bolts pass through the bushings and join the arm to the frame. The lower ball joint assembly is a press fit in the lower control arm and attaches to the steering knuckle with a castellated nut and a cotter pin.
Ball socket assemblies have rubber grease seals. These seals prevent entry of moisture and dirt and damage to the bearing surfaces.
Four-wheel drive models have a front suspension that consists of the control arms, a stabilizer bar, a shock absorber, and right and left torsion bars. The torsion bars replace the conventional coil springs. The lower control arm attaches to the front end of the torsion bar. The rear end of the torsion bar mounts on an adjustable arm at the crossmember. This arm adjustment controls the vehicle trim height.
Two-wheel drive vehicles have tapered roller sheel bearings. These bearings are adjustible and need lubrication.
Four-wheel drive models and RWD Utilities have sealed front-wheel bearings. These bearings are pre-adjusted and need no lubrication.
Heat treatment may create darkened areas on the bearing assembly. This discoloration does not signal a need for replacement.
Hope this helps?

Is there a weight limitation for carrying roof bicycle racks/bike


I wouldn't think there is a limitation, but I would be sure that it would hod the bikes and the bike rack too. Just be careful when you go thru McDonalds driveway. Lol. Hope this helps!?

Where is the fuel pump located on 1988 Chrysler Conquest?


v
Fig. 1 Fuel pump mounting on sedan and hardtop models


8d46297.jpg


Fig. 2 Fuel pump mounting on station wagon models


1b98f55.jpg





Some early models and all turbocharged or fuel injected cars are equipped with an electric fuel pump. On the early models the fuel pump is mounted in the trunk on sedans and hardtops and in the left rear wheel housing on station wagons. On the turbocharged Colt and fuel injected Vista, the fuel pump is in the gas tank. On the Conquest, it is on the frame rail, behind the left rear wheel, and on later models is located on the fuel tank.

Fig. 4 Electric fuel pump used on Conquest models

On late Conquest models, the fuel pump is tank mounted. It is necessary to remove the fuel tank for fuel pump service. Refer to the Colt/Vista procedure.

Hope helped.
