In order to remove the P/S Gear Pitman Shaft Lower Seal where the Pitman arm is attached on a 1995 chevy G10 van , can the seal be removed from the outside by just removing the Pitman arm or does the gear...

Once you have the arm removed (use a puller made for that) You need to remove the c clip retainer. Many times you can loosely install the arm, put it back on the ground and with a catch pan under it, just quickly turn the wheel and pressure will drive the seals out. If that does not work, you can use long self tapping screws and put one into each side of the seal and pull it free. Most i've seen always have two seals separated by a steel flat washer. To re-install, you need to carefully drive the seal back in using a piece of pipe or anything that fits and does not damage it. I have special tools I made long ago to do that but the trick is to be careful not to get the seal too far in on any one side and to not damage it in any way. Likely someone makes an install tool. Make note of the order of the seals as you remove them and make a reference mark on the arm and shaft so you can get back together the same way it was.

The bin arm on my Uline Model 402 ice maker broke off. I have a replacement bin arm. I took off the front plate of the ice maker unit, but am unable to thread the bin arm all the way through the bin arm...

1st remove the icemaker from the unit. Then take the faceplate off.You might find that the support housing is fighting you.You should be able to move the arm into place as long as the icemaker is out.

Not draining and washer arm not spinning

Have you cleaned the drain filter? The symptoms you describe indicate that the filter are totally clogged.

Cleaning filters should be done every other week to maintain good function in dishwashers, it is not uncommon people forget that.

You access the filter by removing the perforated stainless steel plate at the floor of the washer tub, usually there is a round plastic knob in the middle that you turn counter-clockwise then lift it up. Underneath this plate you will find the main filter, take it out and clean with a soft brush under running water.

Good luck!

Arm head-shell spring contact unit removal

There is no trick to this. There is no easy way to repair that, unless you have the proper tools and experience. It sounds like your a novice, because of the questions you are asking.

Here is the issue you will come across...

You'll remove the collar, and find that there are 4 very thin wires soldered to the gold contacts. Those contacts have springs behind them. If they came off, or are damaged, that's it. Technics does not sell the parts for the tonearm individually. You will have to replace the entire tonearm. Soldering those thin wires back into their original position is extremely difficult. It's easier to replace the tonearm.

Good luck!
