LT2000 craftman mower bolt and nut that tightens blades keep coming loose


Get some red lock tight and put it on the spindle shaft threads. Sounds like the threads are worn down and just won't hold the spindle nut tight any longer.

What will cause the bolt and nut for the blades to keep coming loose?


This is usually caused by one of two things. If you have the right size bolt,put a lock washer on it and tighten until the washer is flat. If it continues to work loose you should check for the proper bolt size/ threads or the threads in the bolt hole could be worn out

Need to change the spindles on model 917.273220 craftsman tractor


The job is much easier and safer with compressed air and an impact. I would try really hard to find someone with air to borrow but if no air is available then wedge a piece of 4x4 between the blade and deck to keep the blade from spinning. BEWARE, the board can pop out and the spinning blade can be dangerous. Remove the deck from the unit. Remove the pulley first, hold the blade with your hand ( only if you have air/ impact) to prevent the spindle from spinning. Note the washer under the pulley. Then remove the blade, then the spindle bolts. Most AYP replacement spindles now come pretapped but if not place spindle in a vice and use one of the old spindle bolts ( they are self tapping) to make threads in the mounting holes. Then mount the new spindle in reverse order being sure to instal the washer between the spindle housing and the pulley. Again hold the blade with one hand and securely tighten the pulley nut with an impact. Also the unit probably has a blade brake arm and the spring holder is mounted by one of the spindle mounting bolts. Pay attention to its positioning before removal. If you have a heavy duty replacement spindle the notch on the bracket may not fit the new spindle. with a file or grinding wheel enlarge the notch on the bracket to fit.

The toilet seat is very loose and I can't figure out how to tighten it. Please help! Its about to come off completely Thanks


Usually there are plastic caps that snap down over the bolt head.
Shut toilet lid and get down close with a flashlight.

Seat attaches in two places.
Reach underneath and you can feel two bolts with nuts.
You don't need to see them, just feel with your hand.

The bolt head is covered with a plastic cover.
The cover is added for aesthetic purpose only.
Use small screwdriver or fingernail file or nail or scissors to pry up the cover and reveal bolt head.

Use bigger screwdriver to tighten bolts.
You may have to keep one hand on underside to hold nut while turning bolt clockwise.
Another trick is use hand to push bolt all the way up, and then finger tighten bolt most of the way, and use screwdriver for last few turns.

Tighten bolts good and tight, but don't overdo it.
Bolts will come loose again and you can tighten more later.

Chain came off and it is too long and can't get it back together.


I take it to mean the exact same chain that was on there before now appears to be too long. Obviously, this is a clue. These things don't stretch.
All chain saws will have the chain get loose with use. You should be checking this and make an adjustment before it gets so loose that it comes off which is very dangerous and can cause injury.
When it appears too long, I can think of two things that may be happening.
1. It really is too long and you need to find the adjustment screw near the base of the blade and screw it in (with a long screw driver or the tool that came with the unit when you bought it) which pushes the chain saw blade further out and tightens the chain. Usually, to get the blade back on, I have to tighten the screw and loosen the chain and then make it tight again after everything is together, so experiment with the process of tightening and loosening the screw. (Note, the loosening and tightening assumes that the nuts on the big bolts that hold on the blade have been loosened to allow the blade to slide. Make sure this loosening was done first.) 2. The chain may have slipped of the sprocket gear that drives the chain. If you have not taken the blade off you can't see this gear well and might not notice. Disassemble the blade and put it back together seeing that the chain is properly seated. Don't screw the bolts tight before you adjust the tension in the blade as in my remarks above. Tighten the bolts well, as the final step.

Setting blade tension withouty gauge


With the chainsaw positioned and with the bar/chain combo loosely assembled properly on the chainsaw power-head. With the guide bar/chain adjuster inserted properly into the bar. Using a rag or wearing gloves. Notice how much up and down movement is at the guide bar tip. You must use this to your best advantage!! With the chain adjuster loose. finger tighten the bar nut or nuts. Hold the bar-chain assembly in the up position. To tension the chain, turn the adjuster in the correct direction to tighten the chain. DO NOT LOOSEN YOUR HOLD ON THE BAR, KEEP THE BAR IN THE UP POSITION. Rotate the chain along the bar to make sure it is free to move back and forth, KEEP THE BAR UP. Tighten the tensioner until the chain just touches the bottom of the guide bar. Check for back and forth movement again. Tighten the tensioner no more than a quarter of a turn. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE BAR UP. Now tighten the bar buts or nut snugly against the sprocket & chain guard cover. Check for movement again. If satisfactorily tight and free movement is attained the chain bar combination is properly adjusted.
This scenario will change with different types and brands of chainsaws. It is always very helpful if posters would include a modicum of make, model information with their queries.

How do I remove the fan from an electrolux EGC652 oven


Hello,
The model no. does not seem correct.but it seems as if the hole in the fan blade which is normally D shaped has worn round.The thread on the shaft is Left handed and you will need to undo by turning clockwise. If you can get a vice grips at the back of the blade to hold the shaft then try again,or you will need to get into the back casing and try jamming the shaft at the motor housing you may need some help.Then if that works you will need to undo the 3 bolts holding the Motor body to the rear casing.The new fan would normally come with new bolts,blade and nut.To tighten fan blade nut use a 10mm socket hold the fan blade and tighten anticlockwise.Hope this is helpful.

Good luck.

Bolt comes loose and rip cord is yanked from hand


  1. block off the blade and driver assembly with a 2x4 to keep it from moving
  2. remove the flywheel nut (regular hand force should be sufficient)
  3. tap the 3 holes on the flywheel (if they aren't already threaded) using 1/4inch 20national tap set
  4. remove the flywheel using a flywheel puller -- a harmonic balancer puller which matches the tecumseh bolt pattern on the flywheel also works using 3 1/4inch thread (20national, 2inch long) bolts with washers
  5. NOTE: (if the blade was removed/reinstalled, tighten the blade to manufacturer's spec of 60lbs) before installing the new flywheel key
  6. remove the sheared flywheel key
  7. clean up the flywheel (wipe off all the dirt and grease)
  8. install the new flywheel key (part 611004 for toro 20016)
  9. install the flywheel (pull the bail brake handle to get the ball-brake inside the flywheel)
  10. tighten the flywheel nut to manufacturer's spec of 37.5lbs
  11. prime the gas bulb, give it a pull and mow away
