The torsion spring (flex driveshaft) in the upper boom has a square-shaped indent near one end (where the square end of the clutch drum rides) and is square shaped on the other end (where it mates with the top part of the lower boom). It should just slide right together. If it does not, it is either misaligned (turn flex drive to fix), or the clutch drum is real loose(tighten Torx screw inside it) or the flex drive itself is broken.

Timing belt timing marks


Instructions
  1. Remove the Timing Belt 3.0 V6
    • Place the Voyager's engine in the TDC no. 1 position for cylinder firing in order to get proper alignment. Disconnect the negative cable on the battery.
    • 2Take off the accessory drive belts, and take out engine mount insulator, located in the engine support bracket. Detach the engine support bracket and take off the torsional damper and crankshaft pulleys. This ensures easier access to the timing belt.

    • 3. Locate the 2- to 3-inch wide timing belt in the front of the engine. Remove the cover of the timing belt.
    • 4Mark the course of rotation on the belt as a reference if you plan to reinstall it. Slacken the timing belt torsioner bolt and take off the timing belt. Detach the timing belt torsioner if needed.
    • 5Remove the crankshaft sprocket and the flange shield of the crankshaft sprocket. Secure the camshaft sprocket using a spanner tool MB990775, or something similar, and take off the bolt and washer to the camshaft sprocket.
    Install the Timing Belt
    • 6Use the retaining washer and bolt to fit the camshaft sprocket onto the camshaft. Utilize the spanner tool MB990775 and tighten the bolt. Mount the crankshaft sprocket and put on the timing belt torsioner and tensioner spring if it was removed. Hook the higher end of the spring to the water pump pin and bottom end to the tensioner bracket with the hook facing out.
    • 7Rotate the timing belt tensioner in a counterclockwise turn and tighten the bolt to momentarily hold it in place. Turn the crankshaft sprocket until the timing mark lines up with the timing mark on the oil pump timing mark. Revolve the back camshaft sprocket so that its timing mark lines up with the generator bracket timing mark. Turn the radiator side camshaft sprocket so that the mark aligns with the inner timing belt cover mark.
    • 8Connect the timing belt onto the Voyager's crankshaft sprocket, keeping the belt tight on the side of tension. Install the belt in the same rotational direction if using the original timing belt. Put the timing belt on the radiator side of the camshaft sprocket, and place the belt underneath the water pump pulley first, and follow that by putting it over the back camshaft sprocket and the tensioner.
    • 9Create tension on the side of the timing belt and correctly line up all timing marks. Put the crankshaft sprocket flange into place and loosen the tensioner bolt to allow the tensioner spring to put tension on the belt. Turn the crankshaft two clockwise turns. Line up the timing marks and tighten the tensioner bolt. Put on the timing belt cover and engine support bracket.
    • 10Put the engine mount insulator, crankshaft pulleys and torsional damper into place. Mount the accessory drive belts, connect the negative battery cable and check that the engine runs properly.

Torsion spring is broken for our liftmaster 2265R model garage door opener and i need a new one where do you buy one?


Here are instructions for replacing the spring. You can call any local garage door company and they will sell you the springs. I absolutely don't recommend this job for a DIY'er. It is dangerous.

After I opened the front hood to replace a broken actuator arm, the torsion spring came out but I don't know where I can put it back.


You have not mentioned any details of machine or model but please do not panic.. look with a good light to see the hooks to which the spring can be attached as it will be evident and logically you can see it than to think there is no stay for the spring to be seen

What is the torson bar on jimmy and where can you get the part for it?


1995-2005 Models NOTE: The following procedure requires the use of the torsion bar unloader tool No. J-36202 or equivalent.
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the transmission shield, if equipped.
  3. Install a torsion bar unloader tool to relax the tension on the torsion bar adjusting arm screw; record the number of turns necessary to properly install the tool. Remove the adjusting screw and the unloader tool.
  4. Unfasten the lower link mount nut from one side, then disengage the torsion bars. NOTE: Note the direction of the forward end and side of the torsion bar being removed
  5. Remove the lower link nut from the opposite side.
  6. Remove the lower link mount, upper link mount nut, upper link mount and then unfasten the torsion bar from the frame.
To Install:
  1. Install the torsion bar and support.
  2. Install the upper link mount and mount nut.
    • Tighten the nut to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm) on 1995-96 models and 48 ft. lbs. (65 Nm) on 1997 and later models.
  3. Place a jack under the torsion bar to release tension, then install the lower link mount bushing and nut.
    • Tighten the nut to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm) on 1995 models, 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm) on 1996-98 models and 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm) on 1999 and later models.
  4. Install the torsion bar unloader tool and tighten the tool against the adjusting arm the same number turns recorded earlier, then remove the tool. This loads the torsion bars.
  5. Install the transmission shield, if removed.
  6. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.
  7. Check and adjust the Z height as outlined in the wheel alignment portion of this section.
