Question about American Standard Traditional Champion4 2034.004.020 Whit

1 Answer

Thank you for previous response. There are metal washers on the bottom with a long socket used to tighten the nut washer combo. There is a whole at the bottom of the long metal socket to place a screwdriver in which helps tighten the metal nut washer combo. How tight should I tightene tank to the bowl on an American Standard Champion Toilet? The tank still wobbles front to back.

Do not over tighten it you just need to make it snug enough as not to wobble.

Blanco Supreme 533-U sink drain leaking at seal


The sink basket/strainer that fits into the large hole of the sink should have either a bead of silicone sealant applied to the sealing lip of the assembly or a ring of plumbers putty. Silicone will work very well if the mating flanges are clean and dry.

With the baket in place, the rubber seal goes between the large nut and the sink. A bead of silicon on this is optional on the sink side of that rubber seal. and the nut tightened down snug , forcing some of the silicone out fro beneath the mating flange and rubber seal. Tight enough so the basket is not free to move. Be it plastic or brass/metal, that order is the same, only a plastic nut is not tightened as tightly as a metal nut would be.

On the bottom of the drain basket assembly there is a nut, to retain a plastic or brass tail piece. The plastic tail piece will have a polyetheylene "flanged washer" for a seal to the bottom of the sink basket. If it is a brass tailpiece, a rubber seal and metal nut is used with "pipe dope"/thread sealing compound used on the threads of the metal nut. With the plastic nut, you can apply a few wraps of teflon tape to the threads of the drain basket, but is not required in most cases as the poly flanged washer will form the seal. The plastic nuts should not be tightened any more than hand tight.

beneath that, the rest of the drain assembly attaches. If plastic- no more than hand tight. if metal, only about 1/4 turn past hand tight. Metal nuts and parts should use rubber gaskets/seals and the plastic parts should only use the poly tapered/lip seals.

I have an older B+D circular saw, Model 7700 Type 1. I replaced the blade but when I tightened the retaining bolt, the blade spins freely and now I can not get the retaining bolt loose.


Quick and dirty solution for this is to use a drill bit or large nail in teeth of the saw to jam crosswise against the guard @.Or use a 2x4 clamped in place and jam the blade in to the wood to stop the blade.Just reread your problem.Sounds like the back washer came off.There are 3 things that may work.If you get some wooden wedges (shim pack,hardware store) put the thin ends together and the thick ends to the out side >

Toilet bowl is leaking at the screws. They are brand new and as tight as I can get them. Is there a better screw to buy?


Without clarification I can only offer the following.
The tank sits on a rubber ring that is between the tank and the commode. The screws come with rubber washers, and sometimes have metal flat washers as well. The screw assembly should be as follows:
If metal flat washers are provided, they go on the screw first. Then the rubber washer. If it is cone shaped the big end goes on first so the cone will be pointing down when installed. Insert this assembly through the tank and commode. Install the nut, usually nylon, loosely. There is usually no washer required for the nut as it is normally designed to be self centering. Repeat for other side. Once both are in, tighten them hand tight making sure they are tightened evenly. If the assembly did not include the metal flat washers (step one) try to tighten the assembly from the bottom without turning the screw heads to avoid torquing the rubber washers. Use the slot head only to hold the screw while tightening the nut. Alternate sides making sure that you are tightening them evenly. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN as you can crack/break the porcelain very easily.
I have seen the rubber washers installed between the tank and base as sometimes the instructions are not clear. Even though this seems to make sense they must be inside the tank.
Hope this helps.

Cannot get the bolts and rubber washers to seal properly in the holding tank of our new TOTO Drake toilets


Some manufacturers specify only to use rubber washers inside the tank, and only one bolt on bottom. I usually assemble the bolt with one metal washer on bolt ( or bolt with large head) then a rubber washer, then through tank, then another washer, then a metal washer (brass or stainless) then another nut. Snug these nuts up tight, but be careful not to over tighten or you'll break the tank. Do this to all the bolts. Then set the tank on bowl, with the bolts extending through the bottom. Make sure your gasket is up all the way on the nipple, so the tank will tighten to the stops on the bowl. Now put another set of rubber washer, and metal washer and nut (thumb nuts are fine here) Tighten till tank doesn't rock and is resting on stops. Now it doesn't have to be so tight, as the bolts are already tight in the tank. You can get a fluidmaster bolt kit at home depot that has enough bolts, washers and all

Installing new jacuzzi 1.6 gallon maxima toilet. despite following the instructions, the water is leaking from between where the tank connects to the bowl. Please help.


Yes, it seems the folks who wrote the instructions have never actually done any plumbing.

first place a rubber washer on the bolt, then put it through the hole in the tank. Then place another rubber washer on the bolt, followed by a metal washer and a nut. Tighten the nut, not the bolt.
Using a screwdriver hold the bolt in place, and tighten the nut until snug and the rubber washers are compressed slightly.

Follow this step with all the "tank to bowl" bolts.

Now the bolts are tight to the tank and will not leak water.

Then place the large rubber gasket over the flush valve hole on the bottom of the tank. and set the tank on the bowl with the bolts through the bowls holes.

Place a metal washer on the bolt, and then a nut.

Tighten each nut equally until the tank has no wobble.

Waring blender - new blade


I just figured it out. The key is you need to think in terms of keeping the blades and the large washers separate. Here's what you do.
Thread the blade through the glass and use the white rubber gaskets against the glass and the stainless gaskets against the hardware. Then tighten the whole enchilada to the blender with the main nut (that goes on the bottom outside of the blender). Then once that's nice and tight tighten the flange that catches the blender teeth to the remaining portion of the protruding threads. Make sure you use the copper colored gasket first then the stainless washer then the stainless flange. Tighten that real good and you should be good to go.
To check if you've done it right spin the flange. If the blades spin independent of everything else you're good to blend away!
