When reassembling the grids place the manifold upside down on a five gal. bucket. Then assemble that way, this will hold the grids stable and make that part much easier.
When that is done and in place. Lightly grease the tank "O" ring. Then run the pump to fill the bottom of the filter with water. With the air bleed closed set the top and lightly push down. As the water inside runs back to the pool the suction created will pull the top down tight. Then just set the ring and tighten.

Oil filter not sealing on 2.2 lt diesel 2013 tray

Will it screw in at all? If not the threading could be shot. Or ur simply just turning it the wrong way. From certain angles removing and replacing oil filters looks like a reverse thread.
Are u putting it on by hand? If so then u need a fuel or oil filter wrench. It's a type of round clamp u place onto the filter and tighten down after putting filter on hand tight. After placing clamp on just turn in the necessary direction and that should be it. Any other problems aside from shot threading looseness due to no filter clamp I can't be too sure. That's all I can provide. Hope it helps.

Replaced bulb and now it leaks elsewhere and wont fill bulb. How do i put it back together properly? Poulan pro pp025

if by bulb your referring to fuel primer bulb, I do believe that poulan uses a two screw clamp system , that has a ring that surrounds the primer bulb , on these it's critical that you get a perfect replacement bulb as size on this is critical for fit, there is a machined groove that edge of new bulb fits down into , make sure it's down in that groove before you very carefully lower clamp ring down over it and even more carefully tighten two screws with a Phillips head driver , if it pops out and you clamp down on that edge it cuts new bulb and you'll s**k air not fuel , once it cuts edge you'll have to start all over again with a new one

Filter works fine, except one side where it clamps down is leaking. Other than that it works great and I don't want to replace it. Any ideas?

Is there a gasket or o-ring that is damaged or bad? IF not you can run a bead of silicon around it where the surfaces join and let it dry before you put it together. This would make a gasket.

How to install a 52mm filter to a nikon 18-55mm lens

If you have 52mm screw in filters, look at the filter and you will notice that the metal ring has threads. Look at the inside of the rim surrounding you lens front element and you will also see screw threads. Carefully align the filter with the lens threads and screw them together. Do not over tighten or you will have difficulty removing your filter.

Although less common today, unthreaded filters are or were in the past available. If you have unthreaded filters, you will need to buy a 52mm filter adaptor. The adaptor is made in two screw together pieces. Unscrew the two pieces, drop the filter in between them and screw them back together. Then, screw the adaptor onto your lens.

How to install piston on drr 70 quad

you need to squeeze the rings together to get them started into the cylinder that's all. You can do that with a tin can. Cut the top and bottom out of a can that has no ripples. slit it down the side. Wrap it around the piston rings and use a hose clamp to compress the rings enough to get them in. you will find that you cannot put the clamp too tigh because you need the piston to slide out of it. Oh, BTW oil the tin can so the piston slides out easier.

Badger 5 no good, but can't get it out. tried to turn counterclockwise by the "ears" with screwdriver after WD-40, tried hammer on driver, etc. and still there! Called the co., followed all...

I think you are saying that the Badger is stuck to the sink basket.
So the connector ring will not rotate off.
Open following link for illustration to make sure we are talking about same thing.
Arrows on the illustration point direction for installing new disposal.
So the connector ring goes opposite direction from arrows.

If this is not your problem, then add a comment with in-focus photo of your problem posted on Flickr. You photo will give me clear view of the problem.

The connector ring has 3 metal loops that stick out.
Put short screwdriver on one of the loops and hit screwdriver with a hammer.
I've had them stuck pretty bad, but hammer and screwdriver always worked.
If sink basket starts rotating when you are hitting connector with a hammer, you can cut a stick and jamb it between the bolts and the cabinet.

Once the connector ring comes loose and disposal drops down, loosen the three screws, and there is another clamp ring that holds the sink basket parts together. Clamp ring comes out by prying with screwdriver.
I wrote some tips for putting the disposal back together.

I can't get the two pieces of the pump to fit snuggly enough to get the clamp to fit

The problem is the o-rings. The diffuser o-ring has to fit tight into the volute to go back together correctly. This is a common o-ring and can be found at any on-line supplier. You will need the model number of your pump and they should be able to help you. (you may also e-mail me your model and i can give you the part number:

As long as you have it open, replace the housing o-ring as well, this will ensure a good seal on the v-clamp once you get it back together. It is a good idea to have these extra two o-rings along with the shaft seal anytime you open the wet end of the pump, just in-case there is bad wear on the current seals.

How to change air filter 2003 mini

After opening the hood, locate the air filter box, which is just to the rear right corner of the engine. It is connected to the engine via a thick plastic tube.

Remove the tube clamp that joins the plastic tube to the air filter box. The tube clamp is a metal ring with a simple clasp on it. To release the clasp, slide the tip of a flat-head screwdriver in the opening and twist it to either side. The clamp will loosen, allowing you to pull away the tube from the air filter box about an inch or so.

Remove the two metal screws on the right side of the air filter box. They're located along the seam where the lid meets the bottom of the box.

Slide the lid to the left about a half inch; it won't go much farther than that. When it's as far to the left as possible, lift it off.

Pull the old filter out of the box. Give it a close look if you'd like, and if it doesn't appear particularly dirty, put it back in. Otherwise, discard it.

Put in the new, clean filter in the old one's place.

Put the lid back down so it's just to the left side of the bottom of the air filter box, then slide it to the right until it snaps into place.

Replace both screws on the right side.

Slide the plastic tube back onto the air filter box and squeeze the sides of the tube clamp together to lock it on.

Installing multiport valve.

No, the o ring should not squeeze out. When putting the top and bottom components together....
  1. Make sure surfaces are clean...No lube!!!
  2. Make sure o ring is clear
  3. Install o ring usually on lower half but depends on model
  4. Gently place upper half on lower
  5. Place clamp around the halves (this can be tricky)
  6. If there is a tension spring with the clemps, do not use it yet
  7. Without the spring, insert bolt and start tightening the clamp
  8. The halves should slowly come together
  9. Make sure the halves and band are aligned
  10. Once the top is on the bottom fairly secure, loosen the clamp and re-tighten with the spring this time till the spring is compressed with no gap between the colis on the spring. If you have two tightening clamps, do this at equal intervals.
I dont know the exact model you have, but this is a standard procedure... Good luck..
