Question about Vetus Waterlocks Type NLP VET-NLP75 NLP75

1 Answer

I have a vetus nlp75 muffler on my sailboat. It leaked water at the lower swivel. I tightened the swivel clamp with an allen wrench and the leak stopped. Then it started to drip slightly about a month later. I tightened both clamp screws another half turn. It seems like I could tighten more without much effort but it is plastic and I am afraid of breaking it. Is this a sign of more trouble to come? should I replace the whole thing? Access is terrible or I would just replace it. Thanks Charlie

    If that is what is happening. How about I replace the allen bolt with the largest stainless nut and bolt that will fit?

Whats happening is the clamp is stripping. Unfortunately, with the use of this item, it is molded plastic so it does not rust. There may be one small thing you can do to help tighten it up. Your gonna try to get them screws to "bite" at a different area of them threads. The area it is biting now is stripped already and soon it will not hold at all. Get yourself a couple stiff "O" rings comparable to the size of the allen bolts you are using. You will need to get a couple washers just big enough to grab the head of the allen bolt. Your gonna pull the allen bolts out and put the washer on first then the "O' ring then re tighten the allen bolts. This will make the bolt grab at a fresh area of them threads and you should be able to get a better seal.

    Absolutely, you can do that as well. I would suggest a washer on both ends to prevent either the bolt or nut from digging into the plastic. That will work as well.

    Let me know how it works. Remember not to turn that bolt so much it beaks the clamp itself. Good and snug should do you. Good luck.

Steps on removing and replacing radiator on my 1999 jeep cherokee sport 6 cyl. stright


Things You'll Need
  • Waste oil collection pan
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • Wrench set
  • Socket set
  • Antifreeze
  • Water
armor-all-tyn2.png
  1. Draining the Cooling System
    • 1 Locate the petcock valve on the lower right corner of the radiator and place a waste oil collection pan underneath it.
    • 2 Open the petcock valve by turning it counterclockwise, using needle nose pliers.
    • 3 Wait until all the coolant has drained out then close the petcock valve by turning it clockwise.
    Removing the Radiator
    • 1 Loosen the hose clamp that connects the upper radiator hose to the radiator using a Phillips head screwdriver. Then pull the upper radiator hose off the radiator.
    • 2 Loosen the hose clamp that connects the lower radiator hose to the radiator using a Phillips head screwdriver. Then pull the hose off the radiator.
    • 3 Unscrew the transmission cooler lines from the radiator (automatic transmission only) using a wrench.
    • 4 Unscrew the bolts that secure the radiator to the core support, using a socket.
    • 5 Lift the radiator straight up to remove it from the vehicle.
    Installing the Radiator
    • 1 Lower the radiator into position behind the core support. Be careful: the cooling fins are thin and can be easily damaged.
    • 2 Screw the bolts that secure the radiator into the core support. Tighten with a socket.
    • 3 Thread the transmission cooler line fittings into the radiator. Tighten with a wrench.
    • 4 Slide the lower radiator hose onto the fitting on the bottom of the radiator. Slide the hose clamp over the fitting and tighten with a Phillips head screwdriver.
    • 5 Slide the upper radiator hose onto the fitting on the top of the radiator. Slide the hose clamp over the fitting and tighten with a Phillips head screwdriver.
    • 6 Fill the engine with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water.
    • 7 Run the engine and visually inspect for leaks.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1998 cavalier 2.4?


Things You'll Need:
  • Wrenches and sockets
  • Torque wrench
  • Thermostat and gasket
  • Gasket scrapper
  • Antifreeze
  • Screwdriver
  1. 1

    Follow the lower radiator hose to where it meets the thermostat housing. The thermostat housing is where the opposite end of the lower radiator hose mounts to the engine.

  2. 2

    Drain enough coolant from radiator until it is below the thermostat. Failure to do this will result in your antifreeze leaking out onto the ground.

  3. 3

    Loosen clamp and remove radiator hose from thermostat housing. Some antifreeze will leak out, so have some rags available.

  4. 4

    Remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing on and pull the housing from the engine. The gasket might make it a little difficult, so do not be afraid to pull hard. Do not strike it with any tools as you can crack it.

  5. 5

    Remove the old thermostat and note its alignment.

  6. 6

    Place a rag in the thermostat's mounting hole so no gasket material can enter the engine and then scrape the gasket from the housing and the engine.

  7. 7

    Install the new thermostat in same position as old one.

  8. 8

    Reinstall the housing and tighten down bolts snugly. Torque them with your torque wrench to 10 ft.-lbs. Make sure you do not over-tighten them.

  9. 9

    Reinstall the radiator hose to thermostat housing and tighten the clamp.

  10. 10

    Refill the radiator with coolant and start the engine, allowing it to reach normal operating temperature.

  11. 11

    Check for any leaks at hose connection and thermostat housing. You can tighten them as necessary to stop any leaks.

  12. 12

    Stop the engine and allow it to cool down completely then check the coolant level. Add coolant as required.

Whirlpool dishwasher Leaking water


Hello there:
Troubleshooting Leaks
If the dishwasher leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty. Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work, chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.
Most dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher, tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves, and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.
I HOPE THAT YOU FIND THIS INFORMATION VERY HELPFUL

There are O rings that seal the various body parts of this faucet. I would try turning off the supply lines, removing the handle, and unscrewing the faucet and the housings. Look for O rings that seal each part. Could be a broken, or maybe some foreign material has gotten in the O ring grooves. Best bet would be to replace any O rings and tighten it all back securely. It should not have any Up and Down play, should only swivel side to side. I'm thinking O rings. While there, you can replace the seat seals and springs, so that you preclude any leaks from the faucet itself. Lowes, Home Depot, carry the repair kits for these faucets at a reasonable price. And they usually include the allen wrench and wrench to remove the handle and the body parts. And they are relatively inexpensive. Around 4 to 6 dollars. Its an easy fix.

Handle lowers itself


Remove the handle with an allen wrench. There is a grey retaining ring where the stem is coming out of the housing. Tighten the retaining ring. This will solve your problem. I'm shocked that it's not leaking as well. You might need new washers as well but try tightening the retaining ring first.

Price pfister sb o34-4nss leaks


Well, this is generic for fixing a Price Pfister ceramic disc valve labatory faucet. On the top of the handle, there is usually a screw cover. Pry it off. Then insert a phillips screwdriver or allen wrench, depending on model and remove. Then remove the handle. At this time, make sure the water is shut off to the faucet. You'll need a socket or wrench to remove the cartridge. On many, the size is 3/4. Loosen all the way, then pull out the cartridge and replace. They are usually between 10-30$/cartridge. Insert new cartridge, tighten (but dont overtighten or you will kill the gasket), then replace the handle and turn on water. Check for leaks.
