QLink Frontrunner where do you change gear oil in rear end


Typically most gear drive motorcycles use the same type of system. There will be a small bolt either 8mm or 10mm or a Phillips head . That will be at the bottom of the gear case just below the rear axle. Remove the bolt and let it drain. There should be a smaller screw or bolt of some sort above the axle. That will be the " weep " hole. Once you finish emptying the gear box. You re install the drain plug and fill the gear box through the weep hole. You fill it til it starts to come out past the threads. That is the correct fluid amount. Re install the weep hole plug and you're good to go.

I have a 91 1340cc harley been sitting for two years now when i try to start it it has alot of oil coming from the oil breather what is the cause for this


Hi Anonymous, it's called wet sumpping. Evo's and earlier engines were famous for oil draining out of the oil tank past the oil pump check ball/valve and into the bottom end when left without starting for long period of time (winter storage). When the bike is restarted the piston downstroke creates pressure in the bottom end which is routed back through the gearcase, up the push rod tubes and into the rocker boxes and finally into the air cleaner where unspent fuel particles are recycled back through the carburator and into the combustion chamber. Oil mist and air are seperated by a baffling system in the cam gearcase compartment. Under normal circumstances there is only a couple ounces of oil in the gearcase and bottom end. If the bottom end has a gallon of oil in it, well you get the picture and the mess. Best way to prevent oil eruptus is to drain it before it has a chance to to relocate and take up residence in your bottom end. Enjoy the new season.

How many oil drain plugs on a 2001 FXD and what other fluids should be changed when doing an oil change?


I'm not a Twin Cam mechanic but I think there are two oil drains on the bottom of the transmission. The oil tank for your bike is on the bottom of the transmission. It looks like there is a drain on the bottom of the pan and one on the front. The oil should be changed every 3000 miles if you're using petroleum based oil. Synthetic oil can go a bit longer. The primary oil and transmission oil should be changed every 5000 miles or so. The primary drains from a pipe plug underneath the primary back near the rear of gearcase. The transmission drains from a plug underneath.

Good Luck
Steve

When Ideling coolant drips underneath the water pump


Most Yamaha water pumps have a "weep hole" on the bottom of the water pump housiing.
Basically your water pump shaft has a coolant seal and an oil seal where it is driven...the weep hole drains away any leakage between the cooalnt and oil seals so cross contamination does not occur.
You probably should look at rebullding the pump. Don't try plugging off the weephole to stop the loss...it will contaminate the oil system.

MOdel 110.92579110 leaking water out bottom of


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.92579110

LEAKING:

See the Sears site sub-components for the agitator, basket and tub. It's possible that one of the gaskets or seals has worn over time.

I'd also pull off the cabinet and check the hoses leading to and from the pump. It's also possible that the pump is leaking.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

The illustrations also show how to remove the transmission.

OIL

The black oil / fluid that you see is likely coming from the transmission.

Since it seems to be "spraying" around the inside of the cabinet, I'd assume that it is leaking from the top seal between the transmission and clutch.

See the following for a parts breakdown of Whirlpool top load direct drive washers.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

If you look at page 15, you'll see a Seal, Gearcase Cover. It is possible that that is the cause of your transmission leak.

The rust on the bottom of the transmission may (hopefully) be simply caused by the water leak.

I'd remove the gearcase cover (8 bolts) in order to check the gearcase cover seal, and to check the oil level. The Whirlpool transmission takes about 15oz or 80-90 weight oil.

Anti freeze driping out of seep hole from the bottom of case


hello
there are two different seals on the water pump. the oil seal and the mechanical seal. the oil seal helps seal out the oil from the trans case. the mechanical seal helps seal the coolant from going into the trans case, and vise versa.
the weep hole is there to help diagnose if either seal is faulting. so if coolant is leaking from the weep hole. the mechanical seal is faulting or if the oil seal is leaking oil will drip from the weep hole.
hope this is of some help. thank you.

Oil drip on bottom of gearcase Kenmore Model 110.21882 washer


Unless there is an abundance of oil this is normal.
If you tilted the machine to replace the coupling that could cause some oil to escape also.
There is a small hole in the top cover of the gearcase to release pressure. Sometimes a little oil comes out too.

Wow...your posting was hard to read, but I managed to "muddle" through it. I understand that you need laundry and experienced no leaks of any kind. Well...I don't have a good answer for as to what may be wrong. You could have experienced a momentary leak due to heavy vibration from an unbalanced load, or...you had a minor leak that sealed itself over time, I just don't know. That's the nature of this business sometimes. This is also why customers get frustrated by repeated service calls when the appliance doesn't do what it was doing wrong when the repairman shows up. Then, as soon as the repairman disappears down the street, the problem comes back. Believe me, I've seen this over and over. The best advice I can give you for now is to continue to monitor your washer with the cardboard underneath. If the problem comes back, no matter how minor, get back to me and let me know where it is leaking. Until then, if the washer does NOT have any problems continue to use it as you normally would. Good luck to you Tom.

PS To avoid confusion - to get back to me, all you have to do is reply to this post with your comments and I will receive an email notification.

Okay...what you are talking about is a honey colored oil, right? The gearcase (transmission) is filled with this oil. Sometimes the gearcases are prone to leaks. There is a small breatehr hole onthe top of the gearcase housing that oil will sometimes weep out of when it expands. This could be a potentially serious problem, as a leaky gearcase COULD mean it is beginning to fail. But...not always. This is kind of a gray area when it comes to this model washer. As leaking oil is generally considered a bad thing, the gearcase could actually run for quite a long time and experience no failures, or further leaks. I would keep the oil cleaned up and run the washer as you normally would. If the leaking becomes progressively worse, the tub begins to spin slower than usual, requires assistance to spin, clothes aren't spinning dry enough, or if the gearcase starts to exhibit loud noises, stop using the washer and plan on needing a replacement gearcase. They generally run about $150 and can easily be installed by the DIYer. If you wish to pursue that as an option sometime, just let me know and I can provide you with the steps required to do so. At this point, monitor what you have and let me know how much the gearcase is leaking.

As far as the water leaking is concerned...you need to determine WHERE it is coming from. If it is leaking in the center under the wash tub in the location of the gearcase, the tub seal probably needs replaced, or you may have a crack in the tub somewhere. If the washer is leaking near the front, this is generally a sign of a leaking water pump, or associated hoses. Check to make sure the hoses are clamped snug. If the washer is leaking in the back somewhere, I would suspect a leaking water inlet hose, or drain hose. The best way to make the determination is to place a sheet of cardboard under the washer when it is empty. Do a load of wash and pull the cardboard out when done. Note where the leak patterns are and get back to me. I need to know where the water is coming from before I can give you a correct assessment. I hope this helps guide you in the right direction.

Model # 23662200,will not spin


Look under the machine and locate the bottom of the gearcase. Inspect the bottom of the gearcase for oil. If oil is present, the gearcase will have to be replaced and the oil has probably migrated to the spin clutch causing it to slip during spin. Check your owners manual for limited warranty. The gearcase may have a 5yr warranty.

If you need further assistance, let me know
