How do I straighten the handlebars out?

Assuming they are not bent...there is a bolt on top of the goose neck (the part that goes into the frame) Loosen it and turn the bars to straighten them,then retighten the bolt. If they won't turn, tap the bolt with a hammer...sometimes the 2 parts freeze together.

Cant remove crank arm on an old style peugeot 10 speed

If you have already tried (flammable) penetrating oil, you may not want to use heat to expand it. You could try threading the but back onto the cotter key until it is flush with the bolt, so you can tap it lightly without damaging the tip.

Need to know how to straighten slightly bent valves 1999 rodeo

You will be sorry to hear that there is no way to straighten bent valves. They need to be replaced with new ones, and refit to the head. This situation makes me worry about the crank bearing process: was the CAUSE of the bearing failure resolved? Was the crank repaired and turned? Was the block measured and issues resolved? and Finally was the bearing clearance measured with plasti-gauge?

How do I straighten a chuck bend off removing a jammed bit?

If this is a TE7 then the chuck will just pop off of the front end. You just pull the rear chuck sleeve foward to release the chuck. With the chuck off run the drill to see if the cylinder is bent. If you bent the cylinder it will wobble. If the cylinder is okay just order a new chuck. If the cylinder is bent then your best choice is to send it to Hilti and have it repaired by them. They have a ceiling on the amount the repair would be and you would get a warranty with the repair. It would be cheaper than you trying to buy the cylinder and replacing it yourself.

For a Shwinn Joyrider PR150 double kids trailer Bent connecting shaft for front wheel to stroller, within front wheel assembly. I disassembled the front wheel assembly and straightened the bent...

Depending on how old it is, I would send it back on warranty. Do not keep bending it or it will break when you bend it, or worse, while in use. It might just be better to get a new, more durable stroller all together.

The shaft of one of the blade spindles could be bent or it could also have bent the deck. You should take it to your dealer and see if they can identify the problem as one or the other. I would ask them if it needed to be straightened or if there was a shaft that was bent. You could replace the shaft, but I would not attempt to straighten the deck. It is something that is best left to someone who does that on a regular basis.

The shaft that the blade goes on to is bent. How do I seperate it from te crankshaft?

The shaft that the blade attaches to IS the crankshaft. You might be able to find a shop that is willing to straighten the shaft, but it is somewhat expensive. At my shop that repair would be $120 to $150. Most shops would not be willing to straighten a crankshaft and would only recommend to replace the shaft....probably a $200 to $225 repair. Sorry.

I own a Craftsmen Self Propelled 625 series Briggs and Stratton, 190 CC 22" cut I was mowing and gently swiped the side of a plastic swing and it shutdown. Now when I went to pull the starter cord it...

Check the blade and the blade shaft. Maybe something down there got bent. If the cord won't pull, there is probably something obstructing the blade from moving, or it got bent out of shape. Also try lubricating the shaft to see if that helps.

Hi the shaft is bent in my mower, can i repair

Not a good idea to try to straighten the shaft. Once done, if effective, you have bent the shaft twice. The factory asks you to not try to straighten a crankshaft. Some do it, however risky it is.
