How to put the spring back in the handle of Arrow T50 Stapler?


Ref. recocking the spring handle in your Arrow T 50 Stapler
1. secure the stapler in a vise. You need three hands to recock the handle spring.
2. Using a notched tack lifter hand tool, with one hand holding the handle so as to expose the spring, place the notched tool against the spring arm and force it to the rear. it will now be under tension.
3. Wiggle the handle into position so that you can quickly insert the clevis pin. Once secured, let go your handle that is now under tension. Replace clevis ring.
4. Dry fire to test.

Snow blower recoil rope broke tied back up and now will not recoil


Unless the recoil spring is broken, then you may have neglected to pre-load the recoil spring. With the recoil unit off of the motor, wind the rope fully around the pulley. Then, while keeping the rope fully wound, turn the pulley about 5 times around in the direction that would push the hope out through the hole. At this point the recoil spring will be trying to spin. Without losing that tension, push the end of the rope out through the hole, thereby putting a bit more tension on the recoil spring. Tie on the handle. Now, when you let go of the rope, the spring should hold the handle snug against the hole. An alternative method is to use a rope about 2 to 3 feet longer than the original. Wind it fully around the spool and put the end of it through the hole. Now pull the extra length through the hole until the tension is sufficient. Cut off the extra length and tie on the handle.
good luck, Al K

Pull rope broke. attached back but cant figure out how to make the rope recall work


The recoil spring has to be pre-loaded about 5 turns, even when the rope is fully returned. When you pull out the rope, you increase this tension, but if you are starting from zero, there won't be enough spring tension to fully recoil the rope. Wind the rope on the spool, then rotate the spool about 5 turns in the direction that would "push" the rope out through the hole. Now put the rope through the hole and put the handle on it. If you got the tension right, it should be sufficient to easily hold the handle up against the hole.

Need to replace the pull cord assembly, because something that tension the spring is missing. Tried substitute cord but found after reassembly there was no tention on the cord something is missing.


When the cord breaks, the internal spring will completely unwind. You have to re-tension the spring, then attach the cord and wind it onto the spool while holding the spool against tension. Finally, feed the end of the cord out through the cord port and tie the handle while still holding tension. A small pair of Vise Grip pliers will hold the cord while dealing with the handle. It's about like setting a trap without getting your fingers caught. Hope this helps!

Cant ajust tensioner pully


You have a (spring loaded) tensioner. I usually use a rachet and whatever size socket the bolt requires and use a 2 foot hollow pole as a pull handle.. Put the socket and rachet on the bolt, slip the pole over the handle of the rachet and push the tensioner back which will give you the slack room you need to install the belt. Make sure you have the belt around all the other pulley's so it will be a easier to slip it on to your tensioner. This tensioner should adjust itself by spring action.

How do I release the tension on a spring loaded hinge?


If there is a cylinder on top of the hinge with small radial holes in it, you need to find a way to twist that cylinder. A special spanner wrench serves this purpose, but you can probably get away with using locking pliers (Visegrips). You will be twisting the cylinder in the direction that INCREASES the tension, so just turn it a littlle bit. That takes the tension off the door hinge (putting it on you instead). Be very careful that the spring doesn't snap free and injure you. There should be a way to then allow part of the spring to retire one rotation in the direction that would reduce the tension.

I do not seem to be able to get spring tension correct when installing new spring in re-wind starter.


with no tension on spring install your pull rope. leave a loop between the pulley and grommet in housing. there is a notch in the pulley, locate the rope coming out of the pully in the notch and wind the pulley in the direction of pull approx 3 or 4 times. Pull the loop out with the starter handle and try starter. If the starter handle does not come up tight to housing reclaim the loop with needle nose and give the pulley one or two more winds and try again until handle is pulled in snug to housing. Be carefull not to wind to tight or will damage spring. Also be sure not too much rope on pulley- it will bind up in housing on recoil.

Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!
