SOURCE: Replacing pull cord on weedeater

there is another t20 screw in the neck of the drum. once removed you will expose the drive clutch. soak it good with WD40 then unscrew it from the shaft. if you have all the housing screws out, you should be able to simply remove the housing to expose the pull cord assembly, screwed to housing.

Screw on plate at back of oven refuse to tighten. Keeps falling out. How do I fix this?

And of the following solutions could ruin the connection, but might also fix problem.
Can you drill and tap threads for larger hole? And then use larger diameter screw?
Try screwing in a fine thread bolt so the thread doesn't match and then that might tighten.
Tap a fine thread into same hole and then leave tap shavings there when screwing in fine thread bolt... or screw in regular bolt after tapping fine thread.
Try sticking awl into hole and bending down to mis-shape the hole slightly so thread might take hold.
High heat from the connection prevents other methods such as adding glue or other material.
Loose screw and wire can cause arcing and high heat leading to fire... keep all wire connections covered so fire cannot get oxygen and spread

How do i remove a striped screw from the engine/clutch cover of a motorcycle?

A couple of ways.

You can drill the screw head off, take out the rest of the screws, remove cover.
Then, IF you didn't drill too deep drilling off the screw head, you might be able to clamp onto the remaining stub sticking up with Vise grips.

Or, drill some into the center of the screw head, and use an EZ-Out (broken screw/bolt extractor) to remove it.

    • 1 Lift the CBR onto its center stand. Unlock the seat latch with the ignition key and remove the seat. Remove the clip screws from the top portion of both seat rail covers, positioned below the fuel tank and the seat, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the seat rail covers away from the motorcycle's frame.
    • 2 Remove both bolts from the front of the fuel tank, using a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and prop it open using the support rod on the motorcycle's frame. Reach under the tank and unplug the fuel pump's wiring connector and all three hoses from the bottom of the tank. Take note of hoses' locations before removing them for reinstallation purposes. Pull the hairpin clip out from the support rod's base. Unscrew the pivot bolt from the base of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the fuel tank off of the motorcycle.

    • 3 Unscrew the air box's mounting bolt from the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket. Loosen the clamps securing the air box's flanges to the carburetors' inlets, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the air box towards the rear of the motorcycle to separate its flanges from the carburetors.
    • 4 Loosen the clamps securing the carburetors to the motor's intake manifolds, using a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the carburetors off of the motor and out through the left side of the motorcycle's frame. The carburetors will still be attached to the motorcycle by its throttle and choke cables. Loosen the choke and throttle cables' lock nuts, using a 10 mm wrench. Remove the cables.
    • 5 Hold the carburetors over a large container. Unscrew the drain screws on the side of each carburetor's float bowl, positioned at the very bottom of the carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. Allow the fuel trapped within the float bowl to drain completely, then tighten the drain screws.
    • 6 Flip the carburetor over, with the float bowls up, and place it on a clear work space. Unscrew the bolts from the float bowls, using a Phillips screwdriver, then pull the float bowls and their gaskets away from the carburetors.
    • 7 Unscrew the pilot jet from each carburetor, using a flat-head screwdriver. The pilot jet is placed to the left (with the carburetor facing you) of the main jet in the center of the carburetor. Screw a new pilot jet into place with a flat-head screwdriver.
    • 8 Reinstall the float bowls and their gaskets onto the carburetors. Tighten the float bowls' screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Reattach the throttle and clutch cables to the carburetors and tighten the cables' lock nuts with a 10 mm wrench. Slide the carburetors through the left side of the frame. Push the carburetors into the motor's intake manifolds. Tighten the intake manifolds' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 9 Pull the air box against the carburetors and push the air box's flanges over the carburetors' inlets. Tighten the flanges' clamps with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the air box's mounting bolt onto the frame's right seat rail, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 10 Lay the fuel tank onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert the tank's pivot bolt through the hinge at the base of the tank. Screw the pivot bolt's nut into place, using a 10 mm socket. Lift the tank up and reattach the tank support rod to the motorcycle's frame. Insert the hairpin clip into the support rod's base. Prop the tank up on the support rod. Plug the wiring connector into the fuel pump and reconnect all three hoses onto the bottom of the tank. Screw both mounting bolts onto the front of the fuel tank, using a 10 mm socket.
    • 11 Mount the seat rail covers onto the motorcycle's frame. Insert and tighten the covers' clip screws, using a Phillips screwdriver. Lay the seat onto the seat rails, then press the rear of the seat down until the seat latch locks into place.

LG WM2455HW washer won't spin when loaded

The tub was slipping on the motor and when loaded would not spin. I noted when accessing through the back panel that the rotor bolt was loose, probably from the factory as the unit has been used less than two years. When I inspected the rotor, the plastic insert that is screwed into the rotor housing and provides the splined hole that fits over the splined shaft from the motor/stator, the plastic ridges had been destroyed. There are three screws mounting the plastic piece onto the rotor so it appears that the designers anticipated selling replacement for the plastic piece alone. So far this evening, I've only been able to find complete rotor assemblies costing $100+.
So, bottom line, your rotor may just be loose.

Husqvarna 28cc weedeater primed x3...choked and starts.... runs 30 seconds DIES.

This sounds like a fuel starvation problem. These units use temperamental little diaphragm carburetors which can develop assorted ills and problems. Sometimes, the problems stems from debris in the carb, fuel tank, fuel filter, or inside the carb where there is another very fine filter. You have stated that it runs 30 seconds, but I don't know if it is IDLING for that period or running at speed for that period. At any rate, check the in-tank fuel filter, ALL fuel lines, and if you can remove the fuel pump cover on the carb (it does NOT have a vent-hole), and check inside where the little round fine wire mesh screen is. Check it for debris.
If all the above are OK, then the carb may just require a small adjustment. The problem here being the type of screws used to adjust the Low and High speed mixtures on the carb. Some have splined heads, some have Pac-Man shaped heads, some have D shaped heads, and some have Double D shaped heads. Older ones have conventional slotted screw heads. On the non-conventional ones, you can use automotive type wire terminal spade connectors. Before you put them on though, you need to note the exact position of the mixture screw you are going to adjust. After that, tap the connector onto the head of the screw. If you use a female spade connector (22 gauge or so), then the end of a small flat blade screwdriver will fit the spade and you can turn the screw. I will refer you to an excellent Zama (probably your carb) carburetor adjusting tutorial now.

Try these things and feel free to post back. We will continue to try to help with your issue.

My weedeater will crank fine but when i try to give it gas it bogs down,let off the gas and it idles fine?

try checking the head bolts and see if they are loose. if this is a 2 -stroke weedeater, the bolts sometimes vibrate loose and you lose compression.

I have a ry30530 weedeater it startsan idles fine but when i try to give it gas it dies .I have taken the carb apart several times to make shore it is clean but no luck. thanks for your input;Matt

Your carb probably has 3 screws that can be adjusted. The one against the throttle shaft plate is the IDLE speed screw, probably Philips head. Turning it in opens the throttle settings, backing it out, does the opposite. No real concern here. But, the other 2 screws are: the L and H mixture screws. Typically, the heads of these 2 screws are of an unconventional design to prohibit tampering by the end-user (you). I use a small, plastic automotive wire connector tapped down onto the heads of these screws to get ahold of them to turn. Try it. In the case of your machine dying out upon acceleration, providing it is back together properly and adjusted correctly (see link included for tuning), you will need to try turning the L mixture screw counterclockwise about 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn, because at WOT (wide open throttle) the carb utilizes the fuel in the L (idle) circuit of the carb alongwith the fuel being provide by the H (High Speed) fuel circuit.

How do I line up the dowel pins in between the block and head

What I used to do, when the head was in a tight area. I would cut the
heads off a couple of the old head bolts. And by hand screw one into top ctr. of the head mounting surface on the block then screw in the other just below it. Next. Place the gasket on the block and using the
bolts for guide pins slide the head down onto the dowels. If you don't
have a bench grinder or a cutoff wheel. Take 1 of the head bolts to a
hardware store or home depot, and pu a couple of cheap bolts 5-6" long
or a piece of threaded rod the same size as the head bolt. These will be
a lot easier to cut then the grade 9 head bolts. Hope this helps.

Gas weedeater wont start

assuming weedeater brand weed eater, the carb. has a filter screen, that blocks and does not allow the pump to push sufficient fuel. A phillips head screw on the side of the carburettor secures a square plate, remove the screw and plate and gently brush the screen clean, dirt collects on the visible side.
Dirty foam filters if fitted change the fuel mixture and make it too rich to run.
and the fuel mixture knob, although secured by a tension spring, moves and may need to be readjusted
