So here we start off with some basic tips to repair your brakes.
Visual Inspection
The initial stage requires a visual inspection. A visual inspection takes a few minutes and is done every time the oil change takes place. One can start with checking the color of the fluid in the master cylinder. The change in the color of the oil can help in identifying the impending problems. A transparent and almost clear fluid is good news. But if the color of the fluid turns brown, this means it has expired and is not suitable for the vehicle.
Further Inspection And Cleaning

  • Mud and road salts are the most common elements that can affect your brakes. For that it is very important to clean the brakes frequently. Carefully remove the first wheel and try to remove as much gunk and debris as possible. While the drums and rear wheels are off, brake parts cleaner should be used to clean the rear brakes. There may be many causes behind the failure of the car brakes but solid dirt particles are the most common ones. So it is always good to start with the brushing and cleaning.
  • Then, if the front and rear parts do not operating properly, these parts need to be replaced.
  • After that, the inspection of brake rotors should be done. Brake rotors are commonly known as discs.
  • Brake drums that are damaged should also be replaced.
  • Next stage involves the inspection of wheel bearings. After the inspection is done, Shoe pads and Caliper slides should be lubricated with moly-based brake grease.
  • To get rid of moisture contamination, it is important to get the brake fluid checked. It involves the inspection of all the brake lines including the wheel cylinders, hoses, master cylinders and calipers. Wheel cylinders and calipers should be checked to detect leakage and severe corrosion. If the master cylinder is found leaking, it should be replaced or rebuilt.
  • The "brake pad wear sensor" on the pad should be inspected for damage or cracks.
  • The final round of inspection requires, ABS (Anti Brake System) check. Always make sure that the pedal is comfortable, and the brakes function properly and quietly to provide you prompt stopping. It is advisable to check each and every component in the brake. If any part of the Brake is damaged or worn out, it should be immediately replaced. After all it's a matter of ones safety.

    I compete in 3d archery so I bought a new rangefinder 2 days ago and it reads 19.2 yards at exactly 20 yards is there a way to adjust it to read properly?

    Page 5 of the manual states: RANGING ACCURACY The ranging accuracy of the Scout™1000 is plus or minus one yard / meter under most circumstances. The maximum range of the instrument depends on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 650 yards / 594 meters while for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1000 yards / 914 meters. Note: You will get both longer and shorter maximum distances depending on the reflective properties of the particular target and the environmental conditions at the time the distance of an object is being measured. The color, surface finish, size and shape of the target all affect reflectivity and range. The brighter the color, the longer the range. White is highly reflective, for example, and allows longer ranges than the color black, which is the least reflective color. A shiny finish provides more range than a dull one. A small target is more difficult to range than a larger target. The angle to the target also has an effect. Shooting to a target at a 90 degree angle (where the target surface is perpendicular to the flight path of the emitted energy pulses) provides good range while a steep angle on the other hand, provides limited ranging. In addition, lighting conditions (e.g. the amount of sunlight) will affect the ranging capabilities of the unit. The less light (e.g. overcast skies) the farther the unit's maximum range will be. Conversely, very sunny days will decrease the unit's maximum range.

    The difference you are experiencing (20-19.2=.8 yards) is within the device ranging accuracy of 1 yard, and is in fact an error of only 4%. That is pretty accurate

    In case you have lost your manual, you can download from here:

    Good luck with your device.

    V3 change meters to yards


    The TOUR V3 can be used to measure distances in yards or meters. The unit of measure indicators are located in the lower
    right portion of the LCD. To select between yards and meters, press and hold the POWER/FIRE button. The display will
    begin to cycle through the setup options: Yards w/JOLT, Yards, Meters w/JOLT, Meters (for details on the JOLT feature,
    see "About JOLT"). When the units and JOLT mode you want to use are displayed, release the POWER/FIRE button to
    select it. If you are changing from yards to meters, a change in unit of measure will be indicated by the illumination of the
    M for meter indicator while the Y for Yard indicator is turned off. If you are changing from meters to yards, the opposite
    will occur. The TOUR V3 will return to the last unit of measure setting used each time the unit is turned on.

    How to set my bushnell scope 3-9x40 for 200 yards

    The Bushnell 3-9X40 has been around for quite some time in several forms, but it is pretty standard to set it like any other scope.

    With the gun resting solidly on sand bags or something like a Lead Sled, shoot at a target with a 1" grid on it. Those targets are a free download at, but you have to browse to find them. Targets No: 10049 or 10058 are both usable, if you can see a 1" aiming point with a 9 power scope at 200 yards.

    With a known point of impact (POI) at 200 yards, you can move the POI to where you want it (inside the caps at the center of the scope, there are adjusting screws or slots). The norm is 1/4" per click (the adjuster can usually be felt to click) at 100 yards or four 1/4" clicks for an inch. At 200 yards, the adjustment will be twice what it is at 100 yards or 1/2" per click.

    Make your adjustments, using the grid on the target to tell you how many inches it needs to move, and shoot the target again to confirm the adjustment is correct. It's pretty standard to shoot at least a three shot group to ensure the bullets are reasonably close to each other.

    Another method is to set the POI at a certain number of inches high at 100 yards and assume it's right at 200 yards. If the mid range trajectory, for your cartridge, at 200 yards is X inches high at 100 yards, you can set your POI to that X inches high and be pretty close at 200 yards.

    When adjusting for a couple of inches, the next shot is a foot off. It seems to wander all over the target.

    ! click is 1 inch @ 100 yards, provided you have the correct scope for the rifle.
    If you are sighting in a .22 LR 40 grain match velocity bullet for 100 yards, the mid range trajectory (50 Yards) is 6" higher. The bullet has a 6" arc half way to your target. If you are sighting in a .270 with 150 grain blunt tail bullets for 250 yards, the mid range trajectory is .4 higher. It only has 4/10" arc half way.
    You most match the scope to the gun, and the 1 click= 1 inch rule will apply. Otherwise, it's lock it into a righd mount, fire it and adjust the scope accordingly. If you want to change the range on the scope, it will be guesswork.
    I use a Bushnell Banner 3-9X40 with BDC. If you have BDC, make sure you have the correct distance ring in for the caliber.. It will make all the difference in the world.

    I can't get it to bow or rifle mode

    Look on the back of the rangefinder......Its a very small strip that has the model number, serial number, and date of manufacture. If it sez.....20-1932 you have a "bow and rifle" rangefinder.....!!!! If it doesn't have model number 201932. You don't have that capability. Read your manual, check the unit for the model type.
    Part 2: Try holding down the "FIRE BUTTON" for more than 5 seconds....see if the the "setup" comes across the display screen........(read the manual) The unit should have came with a ballistic disk. If you don't have one call Bushnell and get one. (800.423.3537) It has a lot of good info on it.

    Good Luck to you David!!!

    Bushnell Yardage Pro Scout

    If it's like the one in the picture they don't have parts anymore. If it's the small unit call 800.423.3537 and ask for Michael. He can and will fix it. Alignment is 30 bucks, Lcd is 15 bucks and all other maintenance and adjustments are 15 bucks. Now this is half the price of a new unit, just to repair this one......Think about it.

    you have it on the meters setting not the yards setting. hold the scan button down for three seconds or longer and it will revert to the other form. a meter is nearly 10% longer than a yard.
