I just fixed one with the same problem.
10 to 1 odd the brushes are stuck from sitting.
unplug unit.
take off the cover of the motor. 2 -7/16 nuts

there are 4 post one with black wire , white wire , ground and no wire.
you need to take off the two nuts on the one with ground and the one with no wire.
you can then remove the cover which will have the brushes inside.
once removed push the brushes in and out of the sleeve to loosen. spray with some liquid wrench or wd-40 and work back and forth. I took some steel wool and cleaned the copper where the brushes contact.
when you put it back together don't forget the scussion ring. it looks like a couple of potato chips put together. line up the slot on the casing with the nub on the perimeter of the brush housing,
slide it in while lining up the long screws with the holes in the housing. you will need to depress the brushes with a screw driver through the front hole , then slide it in . it will not go in the last 1/8th because of the scussion washer. tighten the nuts on the long screws and the gap will close. if you have the wheel off you can use a phillips screwdriver to hold the oth side , if not just hold the screw on the shaft with channel locks in the middle so you will be able to get the second nut started.

repeat on the other motor and you should be good to go

How do I dress a grinding wheel on a bench grinder with a viberating wheel.

First of all I must warn you of the dangers bench grinders can represent. Here in Britain no one connected with a business is allowed to carry out any maintenance on any none-portable grinding machine unless they have attended and passed a course on the subject and every employer must keep a register recording what maintenance has been carried out and by whom. Grinding machines have been responsible for many industrial "accidents".
Householders and private individuals are exempt from the Law but cannot afford to be less well informed even though the five and six inch bench grinders sold to the domestic user represent a somewhat reduced risk, great care and precautions are still required, not the least of which is the use of good eye protection even if the grinder is fitted with shields.

The first problem about dressing the grinding wheel of a grinder intended for the domestic market is the tool rests are usually too small and insubstantial for the vibrating star-wheel type wheel dressing tool to be used correctly.
A demonstration would be the best way to learn how to dress a grinding wheel and there are many available on Youtube and here is a link to a particularly good video.

Finally, it is best to be aware of one little thought about problem. There is an optimum speed range when a grinding wheel works efficiently and small domestic grinders barely turn fast enough for them to be properly efficient, probably because it is reckoned price and user safety takes priority over efficiency.
The speed that is of concern is the surface or peripheral speed of the grinding surface rather than the rpm of the spindle and should that speed fall too low the wheel will not be able to operate efficiently, will become dull more quickly with a greater tendency to clog and the wheel will become hot in use and hot grinding wheels soon become dangerous.
I hope you will be able to see that by reducing the diameter of a grinding wheel by dressing it also reduces the surface speed of the grinding surface even though the spindle speed remains the same. The relationship between surface speed and spindle speed is why small grinding points need to spin at 20,000 rpm and an eight foot wheel at just a few hundred rpm - in both cases the surface speed is similar.

A domestic grinder should not be used for heavy work but as the size of the wheel is reduced it should be used only for increasingly light work and if it is desired to carry out "normal" grinding operations it would be better to replace the wheel sooner rather than later.

I have a 2 wheel combo pitcher and when i drop the ball into the shoot it just bobbles around.It will not throw it

You most likely need to use medium grade sandpaper and use it one the tires. They need to be sanded down in order for the machine to shoot the balls out.

How do i bleed my master cylinder to my 1998 ford ranger

start at right rear wheel then left rear wheel then right front then left front that is the sequince. When you crack the bleader open on any wheel you will need a small ruber hose. put one end of the hose on the bleader and the other in jug with brake fluid in it. have help to pump the brake pedal so you can watch the hose or jug to see if any air come out.if no air .then make sure you have good pedal.

I got a Little Tykes Junior Quad given to us and the lights, and all buttons on the front work fine. There is no power to the pedal though. Would it be that I need to replace the power pack? I know the...

You should have a battery charger to charge the 6v battery that powers the wheels, your first step should be to make sure this battery is fully charged, its located in a compartment under the seat.

My troy bilt won't go in neutral

The Junior tiller does not have a neutral selection. In order to free wheel the tiller you have to remove the pins that go thru the wheel rim hubs and then it will roll without starting it. Hopefully the rims are not rusted to the wheel shaft.
