Question about Shoprider New Xtralite Jiffy Power Wheelchair

1 Answer

Looking for a part for the above jiffy Lite model. On the back of there's a part that is screwed on with 2 bolts to the frame (the horizontal bar just above the battery housing area). This part is silver and engages the battery pack and enables the power connection to be made. It has a red handle that you pull to disengage the batter from the connection. To engage the battery you just push the battery into this part and it snaps in and engages. The spring action in the part is broken so it won't hold the battery engaged and connected to the power. Have any ideas re: finding such a part without buying a full battery pack assembly which is $280 from Shoprider or $240 from a dealer.

Repetto Try taking a plastic tie wrap that is long enough to wrap around the post on the battery case and the clasp this shoukld keep it in contact until you can find a part. You shoukdn't need to replace the battery pack just the clamp. If shoprider wants you to by a battery pack just to replace the clamp why? you might try looking for a guardian red small wheelchair it uses the same clamp to hold the battery pack and they no longer make that chair someone might have a junked one that you can get the clamp from just a thought Hope this helps

Harley davidson kickstand diagram

No diagram but could get one from Harley parts department or maybe this will help:

For removal block the motorcycle underneath the frame so both wheels are raised off the ground and then remove the cotter pin and washer from the pin and unhook the spring from the jiffy stand and anchor plate and pull the pin from between the frame tubes and then the jiffy stand and the pivot block will drop out together as one piece.
To reinstall the jiffy stand put the pivot block and jiffy the stand assembly between the frame tubes, install the pin through frame tubes and pivot block from the back towards the front and secure it with a new washer and cotter pin and then attach the spring to the anchor plate (the hook on spring will face up) and the jiffy stand. Ensure that the jiffy stand works properly before using it or relying on it to hold up the bike.

Kickstand fell off on a road king and not sure how it goes back

To replace the 2011 Touring jiffy stand leg FIRST support the motorcycle with a suitable lifting device so it securely upright and level and the jiffy stand is able to move through its full range of travel, move the jiffy stand to the full forward or down position, remove the hex bolt,the lockwasher, the flat washer and the leg stop, swing the jiffy stand forward beyond the normal down position and remove the end of the spring from the jiffy stand, remove the leg from the bracket, remove the other end of the spring from the frame weldment, inspect all of the parts for wear/damage and replace if and as necessary. TO install the leg FIRST apply SILVER GRADE ANTI-SEIZE compound to the area of the leg that rotates within the bracket, verify that the end of the spring enters the hole from the front of the leg weldment because if the end of the spring enters the hole from the rear of the weldment the spring coil will rub on the leg when in use, install the end of the spring into the hole in the frame weldment, insert the leg up through the bracket, swing the jiffy stand forward beyond the normal down position and install other end of the spring into the hole in the leg weldment. Be careful to install the leg correctly because if it is installed incorrectly excessive wear can occur which will allow the vehicle to fall when rested on the jiffy stand. THEN holding the leg at the normal forward (down) position, install the stop over the threaded end with the stamped side down, verify that the longer side of the stop faces the rear of the motorcycle, install the flat washer, the lockwasher and the hex screw and tighten it to 15-20 ft-lbs (20.3-27.1 Nm), extend and retract the jiffy stand several times to verify proper operation, freely swinging to both the fully extended and the fully retracted positions, move the jiffy stand to the full forward (down) position and remove the lifting device and let the motorcycle rest on the jiffy stand, verify that the rubber stop is installed in the hole of the jiffy stand weldment to prevent damage to the painted finish.

To remove the 2011 touring jiffy stand bracket FIRST lift and support the motorcycle in a fully upright position off of the jiffy stand, remove the left rider footboard and support brackets, remove the jiffy stand leg, remove the two fasteners and the lockwashers to release the jiffy stand bracket from the frame weldment.

To Install the 2011 touring jiffy stand bracket FIRST install the two fasteners and lockwashers to secure the front of the bracket to the frame weldment, temporarily install the footboard rear fastener to align the rear of the jiffy stand bracket but do not tighten it, tighten the front fasteners to 36-42 ft-lbs (48.8-57.0 Nm), install the footrest and install the jiffy stand leg.

Adjust timing on acura 2.5tl

1) Remove cooling fans for access. Remove accessory belts. Release PS hose clamp which is also in the way.
2) Break crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer bolt and remove pulley (inspect closely for any defects or loosness between outer pulley and inner section). This can be difficult. I use a Honda restraint tool and 1/2" breaker bar jammed against drivers side frame to hold the engine, and 19-mm deep impact socket, 1/2"-breaker bar, and 3-ft cheater pipe over breaker bar to gain leverage. This works good. Air impact is an option only if you remove the radiator for horizontal access room. Not worth all the trouble.
3) Remove upper and lower TB covers
4) Replace TB, water pump, and idlers.
5) Reverse to close. Torque crankshaft pulley bolt to spec.

How to attach a john deere grass catcher

Make and model are important and would help. Generally they are pretty simple. Some older models you had to bolt a mounting bracket to the rear corner of the frame and then a support slipped into the bracket. Some newer models have a drop in feature (these have rounded ridges on the back of the frame and have horizontal slots cut in them). On these the support bar simply drops into the horizontal slots then a swinging bar slips into 2 holes on the fenders to support the rearward hanging weight. The most important part is getting the right bagger model for your model. If it is a very old model that discharges grass out the back of the deck you may have a hard time finding a bagger at all. If you have a side discharge just make sure you are getting the right version for your tractor. If your tractor has a smooth flat back you need the version that has a bolt on mounting bracket. If it has the rounded vertical humps you need the newer version.

Where is the oil drain line at the front or the back?

Harley Davidson

Sportster = At the back, oil tank drain hose connected to a nipple on the frame with a hose clamp.

Twin Cam = Under the motor you'll see 2 plugs, one vertical and one horizontal.
the vertical bolt is the oil drain plug. The horizontal bolt is the Transmission drain screw.

Evo = Back of the bike, oil tank drain hose connected to a nipple on the frame with a hose clamp.

Some may be modified and just be a hose with a bolt stuck in it with a hose clamp.

How do i remove the harmonic balancer bolt to replace the timing cocer gasket on a 1999 ford tarus se

If there is no air-compressor and an impact gun to remove the harmonic balancer bolt, then there are two other ways to remove it. Either remove the inspection cover at the bell-housing and use a large flat head screwdriver to wedge between the flex-plate drive gear teeth and the engine block so that the engine is locked-up, and then remove the harmonic balancer bolt with a long breaker bar and a lot of muscle power, or for the more advanced mechanics and only they should attempt this, place a long breaker bar on the harmonic balancer bolt and then brace the breaker bar up against the frame of the vehicle so that when the engine turns over the breaker bar will stop on the vehicle frame, and keep in mind that the crankshaft will turn clockwise or to the right, and when you are looking for some place to brace the breaker bar be sure that nothing else will get in the way or it will be damaged. Be sure that the breaker bar is on the harmonic balancer bolt properly, and place the breaker bar about 1 to 2 inches from the vehicle frame so that when the engine turns the breaker bar will lock up against the vehicle frame, and while holding the breaker bar in place have someone turn the ignition key and give the starter a bump, and be very sure to keep your hand away from where the breaker bar is going to contact the vehicle frame, or your fingers will get smashed by the breaker bar when it turns into the frame so do not attempt this if you are unfamiliar with using hand tools, and the starter should break the harmonic balancer bolt loose easily, so be very sure that your hands are out of the way of getting hurt when the starter motor is used to break the harmonic balancer bolt loose.

How do you change brake disks and pads on a golf tdi 1.9

hi to start with make sure the brake fluid reservoir filler cap is removed this is important to do!, then loosen the wheel off this is the wheel you are starting with do not take nuts all the way off, jack up car, then remove wheel, get a flat head screw driver or leaver bar then push the old pads back away from the disk ( can be hard and slow but make sure they go all the way back ) then, at the rear of the caliper there should be 2 internal allen key bolts i think these are 5mm or 7mm, undo them and then remove the caliper from its frame, hang it out the way on a piece of string or something so as not to damage the flexi pipe, on the frame that you removed the caliper there should be 2 hex bolts i think these are 17mm or 19mm, undo these and remove the frame, looking at the front of the disk itself, you should see a in-bedded phillips screw undo this ( a impact driver might be handy to do this if rusted ) and the brake disk should just pull off the hub, fitting is obviously the reverse, NOTE!!!! after refitting the pads, be sure to press the brake peddle down very slowly a bit at a time as not to create an air block in the caliper....hope this helps please vote thanks..

Gear linkage problem

does the battery tray remove easily to allow acces to the pinion?What if you replace the allen cap screw with a hex cap. Mine is a hex and it's fairly easy to remove and install with a 10mm wrench. Of course I'm talking about a different model here? Just a thought.,

Microwave installation

I'm a kitchen remodeler, and I've seen this problem with Kenmores (so it probably exists with some other brands too. The ones I have seen have the typical bolts through the top, but there's more. The flat mounting plate on the wall has an protruding piece that fits well into the body of the microwave when the unit is slid into place. It has a threaded hole in the end of the extension, and the sheet metal screw or bolt that goes into this is causing your anguish. To access this, you must remove the top front louvers (maybe some other trim plates as well). You'll eventually find the bolt that unscrews with a horizontal screwdriver.
