Hi,

This sounds like your axle washers are bent. I would suggest that you get replacement axles and starlocks. You can usually get these on eBay.

Hope this helps.

How to loosen stop motion wheel on singer 500 slant-o-matic sewing machine


Remove the screw on the clutch wheel. Carefully pull off the wheel, and check the ring. The tabs should be facing outward. If the tabs are facing inward, turn the ring around. If they are, screw the wheel back on and replace the screw. Sometimes it takes a couple of times to get the tiny screw between the tabs.

What is the problem when the rear tires on a 96 dodge avenger are slanted inward


Inward at the top?? Need's rear struts. Jack up one side, grab the tire, try to wiggle in a back & forth motion. If it is solid then it's not the wheel bearings.

Hit pothole and now tire makes clicking noise and tire slants inward


If you feel that you've hit the hole that hard, you should have the wheel and suspension checked by a professional. The strut or control arm may be bent and in need of replacement, but that's only if you've really hammered it.

My front tires are slanting inward and idk how to fix that.


First, are they slanting inwards at the top, or towards the front?
If your tires are slanting inwards like you are turning the car (the front is facing in more than the back when they should be facing straight forwards ... like it's pigeon-toed) then you have an alignment problem. For this you will have to go to a mechanic who can do alignments and they will straighten it out.
If the tire is slanting inwards towards the top of the tire, there are a few issues that could be the cause ...
1. Jack up your SUV so one of the front tires leaves the ground. Grab the tire and push on the top and then the bottom of the tire (above and below the rim). If the tire moves when you push on it, the tie rods or tie rod ends are probably shot. This is a piece of the steering system, and tends to be one of those parts that every car eventually has problems with. If you do not work on your own vehicle very often I recommend taking it to a mechanic to have these replaced since the steering system is so vital to your safety while driving. If you DO most of the work on your own car, and have a lot of experience with it, you should be able to pick up tie rod ends at any auto parts store. While you are there, I recommend getting a Haynes manual for your vehicle -- it will have exact directions on how to change out the tie rod ends, with pictures and all that goodness. If you ever have future problems with the car that you want to fix, this manual will almost always help you get it fixed.
2. If your tire does not move when you check the tie-rod ends, but the tire is still slanted inwards, take a look at your springs and shocks or struts. If the springs are broken or fully compressed when the car is sitting on the ground, then you have to get the suspension pieces repaired. This I HIGHLY recommend taking to a mechanic, even if you DO know what you are doing most of the time. The springs would need to be compressed using a special tool, and if the procedure is done wrong, the springs can shoot off of the compressors and either kill you or cause MAJOR damage to your stuff -- a friend of mine almost died when one of his spring compressors broke ... the spring ended up bouncing around his garage for about 20 minutes, destroying everything it hit, while he hid under the car. Fortunately he survived with no injury, but his garage and car were both totally destroyed in the process).
3. If the springs are not fully compressed while the Bronco is sitting on a flat surface, then it might be the shocks / struts. The only difference between a chock and a strut is that one is in the center of the spring, the other is located right next to it. Make sure that the rubber pieces on your shock/strut are in good condition, and that there is no fluid leakage. If these are broken, I recommend taking your bronco to a mechanic, because as above, these are very dangerous parts to replace if you don't know exactly what you are doing.
The only other issue that I can think of off the top of my head that would cause your tires to slant inwards is loose lug nuts ... but if it is happening on both front tires this is VERY unlikely. Make sure all of your lug nuts are tight or your tires might fall off while driving.
If you have recently swapped out the engine in your bronco for something much bigger, then you might have put more weight on the front suspension that needs to be accounted for ... and none of the above solutions will fix it. For this, you need to upgrade your front suspension to account for the extra weight -- this would require a specialty store, and after-market parts (like a lift kit).
There is also a VERY small chance that you have 2 bent axles ... but if both front tires are slanting in at about the same angle, 99.999% chance that this is not your problem. If it is just one tire that has this problem, then you will probably notice a strange bounce while driving, and this is a more likely scenario ... but I really don't think it's that.
If none of these solutions work ... please put a bit more info about your issue and I will see if I can help some more. If you were able to include a picture of the vehicle that shows how the tires look, that would be a great help. Best of luck .. and be safe if you do the work yourself.

Difficulty unfolding phil and ted stroller


Hi,

I find that the best way to do this is the following;
Make sure that nobody is standing behind the pram (expecially small people!)
Make sure that the seat unit is raised.
Stand to one side of the pram, bend down and with both small black plastic buttons, push inwards (so that they are going toward eachother)
The back of the pram should fall to the floor.
Where the childs back of the knees are, lift up the fabric a little and grab the black metal bar, then lift this up and the pram should collapse nicely. You should have a ******** the handle bar with a popper on to secure this shut.

I hope this helps.

Navy and white silvercross dolls pram bought 1980 new


I know exactly what you mean about the classic Silver Cross look but if you fit two larger diameter wheels the pram would not sit level unless one of the axles was repositioned to compensate.

Wheels have been retained by a number of methods and then hidden behind a (usually) chrome cap that must be carefully prised off. In more modern times it has become usual to combine the chrome cap with a spring retainer. It is fitted with the gentle tap of a mallet but patience is needed to remove it and no small amount of carefully applied force and even then there is about a 50% breakage. It is possible your pram used these.

Good luck!

Valco pram repair


Hi there.

If it is a plastic moulding that has stuck, use a silicone spray (mr sheen will do) to release it.

If this will not help at all, try your nearest Halfords bike department or bicycle repair shop. I doubt they will charge you anything.

If it is a broken part, find the manufacturer for ordering a replacement.

Hope this helps,

you have to replace the spring inside the wheel hub. the same thing was happening to me and my husband made a new spring out of spring steel. I guess they just loose their strength after a while. It was very frustrating!
