How do I fix a hole in the floor of a rubbermaid shed?

Go get flexseal... if it's a thin crack, you can use epoxy glue which is very strong. Flexseal is sold at Walmart, General Dollar etc... it's basically rubber/plastic in a can... apply gently, then apply again as needed...

Cracked water heater

Clean the crack up and expose clean metal by sanding it or a small grinder. Use JB weld it is a two part mixture that set's up hard as steel. Any hardware store should carry it.
I have fixed gas tanks,glasses and a few other thing's with it.
The main thing the surface has to be clean so the compound get's a grip to the metal. Since you already have a crack the compound will go into crack to get a inside bond.
You may use a small file or sand paper to open up the crack a little by adding a bevel to groove to expose shinning metal to get acurate bond.
Drain tank and let it dry out before attemping to fix.

They make all kind's of JB weld for different types of applications and Lowes or Home Depot will carry it.

I have a rubbermaid poly farm cart that needs a new wheel. Where can I find one?

Home centers carry wheels for mowers, wagons, and wheelbarrows. Maybe you can find something that will work or adapt. Good luck!

Plastic radiator repair

I doubt you can actually fix it "yourself", but you can save lots of money by taking it to a radiator shop instead of buying a used or new radiator. They can replace the plastic tank for the bad side, but it is usually the drivers side because this is where the hottest water exits the engine and causes the plastic to crack. I removed the radiator myself and took mine to a shop and they repaired it for $40........cannot repair yourself because the tank has to be crimped on!!!! And radiator "stop leak" products will not work because they are for metal tanks!!!
