The fastest solution would be just to run to the hardware store and buy a nut that fits the bolt. It is a common size thread. If you want to continue to use the knob you have two options. You can of course buy a new knob. Finding one in stock at a pool supply is kinda hit and miss, you might need to call around, but you should be able to find one if you call or visit a couple stores. A pool pump repair shop should definitely have one in stock; if not new, than at least a used one. Another option is you use a heli-coil insert to repair the knob. I have done this many times and it works great. You can get a heli-coil kit at most auto part stores, and some hardware stores. The kit comes with a tap to re-thread the stripped threads to a larger size, then use the enclosed tool to screw in an insert, and your done. It may be cheaper to buy the knob, but it is an option, and once you have the tool you can use it for other things as the insert alone are fairly cheap, and it is a common size thread your dealing with. Hope this helps. If you need further assistance post a reply in the comments, and don't hesitate to leave a good thumb rating if you found this helpful. Thanks, and good Luck!

Testimonial: "Thanks. I had the nut option but with fine thread and a long run-up, it's a pain and temporary fix. Hard to get at as well. Like the rocket!"

    Yea I hear ya, when I come across these without nuts instead of knobs, I usually break out the cordless drill and nutdriver with a deep socket. I've also made a custom tool for a customer, by taking a piece of pipe, and epoxying a socket into one end, and drilling the other to put a small rod (like a nail or small bolt, etc) across the opposite end as a handle. kind of trailer, but actually works well. thanks and good luck

Expand-It 40 volt locking collar T bolt stripped

Give these ones a try.. But NOTE; There is no need to tighten these up that tight.! There is no way that you should have to tighten them up enough to strip the thread.. its holding on an extension shaft together, its not having to hold the weight of a vehicle.

Do u have to replace the hold drain pump bracket if the black hose conected to the pump keeps falling off?

You do not need to replace the whole drain pump. The black drain hose is attached to the drain pump and secured with a hose clamp. If the clamp is not further down the drain hose, inside the unit on the base or has not fallen underneath the washer it can be replaced with a hose clamp from a hardware store. You will need the diameter of the hose to get the correct size. Rather than using a standard screwdriver to tighten the clamp a 1/4" or 5/16" nut driver or socket works much better. Make sure you unplug the appliance before working on it and have towels handy in case of water spills

Pool Filter blowing water through clamp when starting up

One possibility is to use a Sharpie to mark where the tension ring sits, circumference-wise, after tightening it. Next day or two, when the water blows through note where the space between the mark you made and the adjustment screw. If there is a space, the tension ring is obviously stripped. Also, have you considered a crack in the pump housing???

How do I remove the clamp on a FP5172 so I can replace the pump body. I have a small crack in the front of the pump body. Could I use some type of epoxy to seal the crack?

Thank you for posting your question here on

Once you remove the nut use a flat tip screwdriver to release the wedged-on band from the plastic housings. They sometimes stick pretty good if they were in service over many years so do not be afraid to work the band pretty hard if it won't budge at first.

When replacing the band use a mallet or similar tool to tap down the band as you retighten the nut. Each time the nut tightens down work the mallet around the band and tighten the nut some more. Continue this process until you can no longer tighten the nut after tapping down the band.

The fuel filter is part of the fuel pump assembly located in the tank.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove the two fitting nuts while holding the filter.
  5. Remove the filter mounting bolts and the filter from the clamp.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the fitting nuts to 22-29 ft. lbs. (30-40 Nm).
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Start the engine and check for leaks.

How do i change a powersteering pump on a 1995 lincoln continental

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the fluid return hose at the pump and drain the fluid into a container.
  3. Remove the pressure hose from the pump and, if necessary, drain the fluid into a container. Do not remove the fitting from the pump.
  4. Disconnect the belt from the pulley. On 5.0L engines, use pulley removal tool T69L–10300–B or equivalent, to remove the pulley.
  5. Remove the mounting bolts and remove the pump.
To install:
  1. On 5.0L engines, place the pump on the mounting bracket and install the bolts at the front of the pump. Tighten to 30–45 ft. lbs. (40–62 Nm).
  2. On 4.6L engines, place the pump on the mounting bosses of the engine block and install the bolts at the side of the pump. Tighten to 15–22 ft. lbs. (20–30 Nm).
  3. On 5.0L engines, install the pump pulley using pulley replacer tool T65P–3A733–C or equivalent.
  4. Place the belt on the pump pulley and adjust the tension, if necessary.
  5. Install the pressure hose to the pump fitting. Tighten the tube nut with a tube nut wrench rather than with an open-end wrench. Tighten to 20–25 ft. lbs. (27–34 Nm) on 1989–91 vehicles or 35–45 ft. lbs. (47–60 Nm) on 1992–98 vehicles.

NOTE Do not overtighten this fitting. Swivel and/or end play of the fitting is normal and does not indicate a loose fitting. Over-tightening the tube nut can collapse the tube nut wall, resulting in a leak and requiring replacement of the entire pressure hose assembly. Use of an open-end wrench to tighten the nut can deform the tube nut hex, which may result in improper torque and may make further servicing of the system difficult.

  1. Connect the return hose to the pump and tighten the clamp.
  2. Fill the reservoir with the proper type and quantity of fluid.
  3. Bleed the air from the system.

I just replaced a front and back brakeline on my 1996 chevy suburban and realized my bleeder screws are frozen, is there another way i can bleed my brakes?

Yes there is another way to do it but go slow and do it wright
Bleed by using the screw nut on the pipes you just fitted by.
Pump pedal 3times fast and hold down get someone to clamp all 2 hoses (1F/1brake pipe over rear axle) with small G clamps and then undo pipe nut on the one without clamp when pedal on floor lock up and do again ,when done 2 times put clamp from other side to the 1 you just done and do the same again to that side, when Front done take clamp from rear pipe and put on front and to the same bleeding to the rear BUT
pump up 3 times and open both nuts togeather and tighten both togeather and do the rear 4 times not 2, ANDTop up M/Cylinder every time , you might find jacking up rear of car is a lot better to remove air

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.

in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit
