If it is heavy or will be moved often the only way to go is to find a stud and mount the base to that with long wood screws. If there is absloutely no way to mount it to a stud, wing nuts are the way to go. You have to drill a larger hole but the spring loaded nuts will open up when pushed through the hole and will help spread the load over a larger area.

My 1811 cub cadet only idles at one speed, mid range


The correct way to adjust the governor, if this is the problem, is to loosen the set screw at the bottom, then adjust to an idle by rotating the linkage arm , it should try to self center. There may be a problem internal with either a broken arm or Governor thrust pinion.

Instructions
    • 1 Measure the chain's tension with a ruler. Move the center point of the bottom half of the drive chain with your hand. Take a measurement of the chain's movement as you push the chain up and down as far as it will go. The chain should have a free range of movement between 0.8 to 1.2 inches. If the chain's free range is greater than 1.2 inches, you need to tighten the chain. Alternatively, loosen the chain if it has less than 0.8 inches of free movement.
    • 2 Loosen the large nut on the left side of the rear axle with a 32 mm socket and a socket wrench. If more leverage is needed to loosen the nut, use a long-handled breaker bar.
    • 3 Loosen the chain adjuster blocks on both side of the rear swing arm with a pair of 10 mm wrenches. Hold the blocks' adjustment bolt's head steady with one wrench and loosen the bolt's lock nut with the other wrench.
    • 4 Turn both adjustment bolts an equal number of turns with a 10 mm wrench to adjust the chain's tension. Turn the adjustment bolts clockwise to loosen the chain, or counterclockwise to tighten the chain. Check that the edge of both chain adjuster blocks are evenly aligned with the adjustment marks imprinted on the swing arm.
    • 5 Check the chain's range of free movement again. Make adjustments as needed until the chain has a free range of movement between 0.8 and 1.2 inches.
    • 6 Hold the adjustment bolts steady with a 10 mm wrench and tighten their lock nuts against the chain adjuster blocks with a second 10 mm wrench. Tighten the axle nut to 72.5 foot-pounds with a 32 mm socket and a torque wrench. Check the chain's tension again.

How do I tighten chain on 2004 daytona triumph 600


Good Afternoon. To Adjust the chain:

1. Position the bike on its stand, or up on paddock stands if you have them.
2. Loosen the rear wheel spindle nut (see diagram below)
3. Slacken the adjuster locknuts on each side of the swinging arm
4. Moving both adjusters by an equal amount, turn the adjuster bolts clockwise to increase chain free-movement and anit-clokcwise to reduce chain free-movement.

Important - Ensure that the wheel spoindle blocks on both sides of the bike reamin in contact with the adjusters through this process.

5. When the correct amount of chaiin free-movement has been set, push the wheel into form contact with the adjuster. Tighten both adjuster locknuts, and the rear wheel spindle.

How do i adjust the chain on my 2004 kawasaki 250f


Simple task, get the bike up on a stand so the back wheel is off the ground. Loosen the rear wheel nut (big 21/22mm nut attached to the spindle that goes through the wheel hub) not too much, just enough that the wheel will move when you adjust the adjusters. Now, on either side of the swing arm you will see a bolt, with a lock nut, running from inside the swing arm, onto the axel block, which the spindle goes through. Adjust these either out or in, depending on whether you need to loosen or tighten the chain. If loosening the chain, you might want to give the rear tyre a kick forwards to move it in (after you have loosened the adjusters inwards). So thats how you do it, simple. The chain should have no more than half an inch movement up and down after adjustment. Lock the adjusters in place using the lock nut, then tighten the big wheel nut up, job done.

Hi we have samsung lcd 22 inchess.. we need to fix it to wall and there is no backside stand .. how can we get the stand


Most electronic stores sell wall mounting brackets. There are several types. one mounts the LCD screen flat to the wall with a limited range of tilt. Another type mount the LCD screen on an arm that allows tilt and swing movements.

Installed the rough in for the Sirus two handle wall mount faucet as per instructions. But the water value is too long and the sprout doesn't go back to the wall. Values are at the indicated lines through...


recalculate the distance, taking into account of drywall, tiles.
if you follow the instruction and the valves are at the indicated line, then you should be OK.
take a piece of scrap drywall and a piece of tile lay it next to the rough in just the way you would have when it is all finish. if it is till too far out, then you have to push the pipe backing back to adjust the distance.

hope that helps
