How do i fix an outboard motor that jumps out of reverse gear when poweris applied

thee are gear cable adjustment that ensure complete engagement of the drive dog in the leg
If it properly adjusted then you will have to pull te leg off and dissemble the gear box and fit new gears and a dog clutch
because it is a straight engagement into square segments and the engine shaft is running it hits and misses until it eventually engages
over time instead of square segments they become tapered and so will slip back out of gear under load
the operator will normally be at fault as the engagement should be at low idle with a sharp movement of the selector lever

Monopod is slipping

If the monopod is slipping and getting shorter as you use it, then find the clamp that is not secure. flip open the clamp lever and using a small socket wrench, turn that nut about 1/8 of a turn. Test the slippage. if is still slips give it another 1/8 turn. Do this until is is not slipping. Do not over tighten the nut or you may damage the clamp or leg tube.

If it is the head, I will need more info as to which head you have on that monopod.

I have several LS220 24 hour timers. I need 3 sets of the on/off insert tabs (as in 6@). From whom may I order them?

I don't know LS220 timer, and internet search turns up no legit information.

I suggest 4 possible solutions:

1) If this is a dial timer with segments, and you pull these segments up to set on-off times: work-around for missing segment is to switch am and pm hours. Fresh set of un-used segments exist on opposite side of dial.

2) Add a comment with clear description of timer.
I will check my files against timers that have replaceable trippers
Specific Intermatic and Tork timers have replaceable tripper parts.
Trippers are available on heavy-duty timers that generally cost more.

3) Identify your timer or similar timer on following link, and then add a comment and I will respond.

4) If this timer costs $20 or less, Buy another timer since it would be cheaper than ordering off the internet and paying S&H.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

A couple of the lever locks on my Manfrotto 055XB tripod are no longer sufficiently locking the legs so they slip. How do I tighten them?

Use an 8mm, I believe, socket and tighten 1/4 turn the nuts on the lower half of the leg lock. For instance, the top leg lock is connected to the top and middle leg. Tighten the lower 2 nuts (located on the middle leg half of the lock) 1/5 turn. If that does not do it, tighten 1/4 turn again. Be sure not to over-tighten.

One clawfoot leg on my bathtub has slipped out of it's track...twice and caused the tub to fall twice. What might be the problem?

If you look under the tub you will notice there is a bolt designed to be tightened once the tub is leveled and in the correct position (at least that is how ours is made and it is an original antique). Anyway, try tightening up on this bolt or screw once the foot is in the correct position and this should solve the problem.

Reassembling telescopic sections for a 676B monopod

Each leg lock has a leg locking lever and a screw that hold the clamp assembly tight to the leg. Unlock the leg lock lever, loosen the screw above it that holds the clamp tight to the leg. The legs should fit into each other sice each leg is slightly larger or smaller then then next one. Slide the clamps in the approprite places and tighten the screw enough to hold the clamp assembly tight, but do not over tighten it. Over tightening will damage the 679 tubes.

Leg clamp tightening adjustment on a 055 tripod.Under weight the leg telescopes in on itself. Clamp doesnot grip tightly enough on the middle diameter leg tube.

There should be a nut on the other side of the housing of the tightening lever that you can tighten. Turn the lever to unlock the leg then start with 1/8 th turns of the nut to tighten, then turn the lever to lock the leg. Do this until you get the desired locking.

One Leg has loss it's grip.

take it apart, there is a rubber ring like a belt or rubber band, either broken or missing. you will have to find a relacement for that, may have to take apart another leg to have one to compare, course I don't honestly know where you will find that piece. too take it apart just keep spinning the lock counterclockwise until it comes off. good luck.
