I have a MX series Desoldering Station. I want to replace the power cable to the hand piece. The brass or copper piece on the end of the power cable broke off inside the hand piece. Do you have any assembly instructions.

I am installing a new ventilation fan with light, and i also want to install it to a new light switch. How do i go about connecting them to the power source?

Turn off power first at the breaker. The black wire is always the hot and the white is the nuetral and the bare copper is the ground.Cut the end insulation of the wire enough to go around the screws on the switch and to screw on marrettes .From one screw brass on the switch the black power source is hooked on and one the other silver screw the black from the fan is hooked on and tightened the white wires are joined together and marretted.When twisting wires use pliers and cut off loose ends so the marrette binds and tightens securely Use one of the bare copper wires and tighten it on a screw at the back of the electrical box on the back and then twist the other bare copper wire to it with a marrette and then one piece marretted from the the bare copper marretted connection to the green screw on the switch. tighten all the screws for a solid connection.this will ground the switch to the house ground system.
Note curve wires clockwise and put on screw in the clockwise position as the screws tighten that way.
Tuck white and bare copper wires in the box and screw on switch and cover. make sure no knicks on the wires you spliced so they don't short or go to ground. Position switch so toggle up is for the on position.Install cover plate .turn on power. If its wrong the worst thing to happen it will trip the breaker Also when turning on or off any breaker stand to the side and use your right hand the one away from your heart and look away to protect your eyes
If you are not comfortable have an electrician do this.

ASUS K52F Motherboard removal





Buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap, or use your motherboard for a Frisbee. ("Wow! Look at that THING Go!")

Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
Advise DO NOT mix them up!

Make drawings, and notes as you disassemble.
Use a digital camera, or video camera, or at least a phone camera, and GOOD lighting.

You don't need a Soldering Station.
A low wattage soldering iron (25 Watt?), Rosin Core solder, rosin paste flux, paste flux brush, Desoldering Braid. (Solder Wick)

[I will use Desoldering Braid over a Solder Su-cker tool, ANYDAY.
(Desoldering Tool) ]

You are replacing single pole light switch?
Single pole switch has 3 wires: black and red and bare copper

New device has 4 different colored screws: green, dark, brass, silver
Bare copper goes to green screw.
Black wire goes to dark screw
Red wire to brass screw
Nothing on silver screw for a moment. Test circuit and make sure light turns on-off.
If lights works, then good so far.

Now let look at silver screw. Neutral wire has to connect to silver screw.
In back of your electrical box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut.
These are neutral wires.
You must connect another short piece of insulated wire to these neutral wires and run that wire to silver screw.
The neutral wire will complete circuit to receptacle.
If you do not have neutral wire, then receptacle will not work in that box without additional wiring.

Hook up neutral wire to silver screw.
Now turn on power and click switch again.
If circuit breaker trips, then reverse your red and black wires.
Otherwise this should be correct wiring.

How do i replace grips on 2008 Fat Boy.

On the Left grip just use a razor blade to cut it off, Length wise, its glued at factory. On the throttle side. Loosen your throttle and idle cable all the way. Take out the two screws that cover the grip, your button switch. You will see two brass prindles on each side at the end of the cable remove them. The grip now slides off, place new rip on and insert csbles and brass pieces in the slot on the grip. Usualy easier to use a needle nose plyer to do the work its tight. You will drop the brass piece a few times dont get frustrated, After you button the lid on with the two screws, readjust your cables..thats it.

El fuel pump

IT might be either in the boot on top of tank OR on the rear of tank,
If on rear then drain at least 1/2 the tank out before undoing the clip ring which turns to the l/h/ to undo use a small piece of copper or brass or even good piece of timber but not steel ..
Undo and take out pump and filter To check pump wipe clean and dry and let it dry out for about 1/2 hr before fitting battery power to it for checking and if dont sound good straight away or the filter is dirty then new one is the answer..
REPLACE IT in the reverse of removal and make sure that the petrol pipes are fitted tight.
When you take the pipes off the back of pump then fit something in pipes to stop the loss of petrol .

Removing old regulator

I presume you mean on a Q-series grill.
DIsconnect the hose or can.
remove the burner tube by removing the hex bolt holding it down to the bos next to the igniter and lifting that end and sliding the mixer tube out and away from the regulator.
Then pull the gas nob off. It takes a little force, but can be done. That exposes a brass nut that holds the regulator to the mounting plate. It has normal right-hand threads, so back it right off. Then, you can take the regulator/valve assembly right out the back of the mounting plate. The regulator and valve are connected with normal right-hand threads and come right apart. Use teflon tape when reassembling, and that brass nut goes cylinder-side (it's not a plain hex).
