I think I know what you are asking, but you haven't given me much to go on. Here are the names of the parts going from pedal to pedal -- pedal, crank arm, bottom bracket arbor, crank arm, pedal. Are you asking about attaching the crank arm to the bottom bracket arbor? And if so, are you missing the tapered pin that older bikes used to make this attachment? If so, the crank arm has 3 holes in it - one for the pedal, one for the bottom bracket arbor, one for the tapered pin. And your bottom bracket arbor will not have a square end, but will have a round end with a flat spot about 3/8 inches square. If you are missing this pin, then take the bike to a bike shop. It's a very inexpensive part, but might be hard to find the right size- or might require a little modification to fit. good luck Al K

I have a 01' Sentra 2.0, and I'm having issues with my Blinkers, Left blinker works till I press the brake Pedal then the blinker dnt work, I've replaced the front Bulbs and it still does it but now my...

There are a few options to troubleshoot this problem.

This could be an issue with fuse, wiring or control switch.

When this happened to me it was the control switch.

If you go into the drivers side of the car and go under the steering wheel to where the brake is located, follow the bar that the brake is attached to up to the switch. The switch is a small box that has a pin that depresses when the bar that is attached to the brake rests on. When you step on the brake (in this case use your hand) the pin should come back out of the little box which then activates your brake lights. If you see the pin sticking then that could be the problem.

In my car the switch was sticking because the little box started to come apart. Rather than replacing I used a couple of plastic zip ties to tighten the box back into place and works like new.

1zillion posts on just cables and trotte.

taking it off (assembly) is easy , putting back no so eash
i upgraged my clutch rod hook to the capative kind so the cable becomes childs play.

if using all stock parts. the clutch cable is tricky
what I do is use a small bungee cord attached to the rear of cable.
(clutcH) this allows me to mount the pedal assembly and not
drop the front end and cuss 10x over.

see how to replace pedals link there

How to install a cv joint axle in a 1997 toyota corolla

1) Drain the transmission fluid.
2) Remove the cotter pin going through the axle on the front
of the hub nut with some need nose pliers. You may need to
remove the tire to get the cotter pin out. If so, jack up the car,
remove the tire. Take out the cotter pin, put the tire back on and
lower the car.
3) Loosen the hub nut, you will need I think a 32mm deep socket
thats a loaner tool at autozone. But it may not be a 32mm youll
have to figure that out yourself! You you can the socket and return
it and get your money back. Have someone step on the brake pedal.
Put the 32mm socket on the hub nut, attach a breaker bar to the socket
or a ratchet. Have someone step on the brake pedal for you. Then hit the
breaker bar or ratchet with a hammer, these nuts are really hard to remove
thats why im suggesting a hammer. You can also spray some wd-40 on the
nut and let it sit for a while. Then try to take it off.

4) Jack the front end of the car up and put it on some jackstands.
remove the tire.

5) Detach the nut holding on the tie rod end, it has a cotter pin you need to
remove too before you can remove the nut. After removing the nut hit the
tie rod end soildly with a hammer and it will pop out.

6) Remove the screws/nuts holding the ball joint to the lower control arm.
The fasteners are on the very bottom of the hub behind the brake rotor.
Pry the ball joint away from the lower control arm. Then you can pull the whole
hub/brake caliper and rotor away from the car. Then pull the end of the half shaft
from the hub. Then pry the other end of the axle from the transmission with a
crow bar or something similar, and you are done removing the axle. You have to pry
because there is a retaining ring holding the shaft in the transmission. Its a good idea
to replace that retaining ring on the axle. Be careful not to damage the seals where
the axle goes into the transmisson.

7) Reassembly is just doing all these steps in reverse order.

My new moongoose mischief keeps getting loose chain and pedals, ive tightend it up sevral times but keeps doing it, and the pedals keep loosening from the body??? anyone know how to solve this/

My first thought about the chain continuuin to become loose, is that you need to loosen the nuts on the back wheel, and pull the wheel (while the chain is still attached to bot hsprockets) in order to remove any slack. If it's a continuous issue, chances are that back tire keeps migrating forward because those nuts aren't tight enough.

To the pedal issue-If the pedals are wobbling or vibrating because the aren't snug while on the pedal bar (the bar that the pedals revolve around) it is probably because the peddals are too large. Try buying a new set of pedals. If they are loose and trying to slip off of the pedal bar and if you have tightened the nuts that keep the pedal on the pedal bar and they are continuing to become loose, it could be that you need to use locking nuts.

A quick fix to solving loose pedals is to add washers to the end of the bar until the washers are flush up against the pedal and the nut.

Happy pedaling!

How to replace outer tie rod

There is a cotter pin that you remove first. Unbolt the tie rod end to where it attaches to the vehicle. You will the need to use a tie rod end separtor to separate it from the knuckle. It is a U kind of tool that you hammer in and it will separate it for you. You will understand what I mean when you see the tool. Next you take two wrenches, one that fits on the flat part of the tie rod end itself ( close to the nut you will see one the treaded bar it is attached to. Take the other wrench and turn the nut on the treaded part of the bar that the tir rod end is attached to. Loosen the bolt, it just needs to be loose so you can turn the tie rod end around. Now that it is loose "unscrew the tie rod end from the treaded bar. Remember to count how many times you turn the tie rod end so you turn it the same amount of turns when you put the new one on. Reassemble in the oposite order remebering to turn that tie rod end the same amount of turns. Make sure that the bolt attached to the treaded bar that the tie rod end screws on is good and tight against the tie rod end so it stays put. I would still think about getting an alighnment and would replace both right and left tie rod ends. I hope this helped and good luck

I have an ABS light and a brake light on intermitently, I had it scanned it said EBCM motor relay switch. The person who scanned it sait that the third brake light was not working and that is the ground....

this brake switch is under the dash, right on top of the brake pedal. as the pedal move the switch has a push pin that moves in and out against the pedal linkage.
it's kind a simple to replace, just disconnect the wiring and the clip that hold the switch.
