I'm surprised myself. Initially, I broke it down thinking it'd be easier to haul out of the basement. Next thing I know, I'm ordering bearings, didn't even think about the warranty. The shaft was...

Thank you, Sir. Makes sense, don't know how I missed that. Ironic you mentioned the seal and bearings, that's exactly what this project was about. In my haste I tore everything down so quickly I...

Frigidaire front load washer door rubber boot

Or bellows, rubber mold, whatever it's called. It's basically a seal that doubles as a bearing surface for the front of the spin tub. Do these stretch over time? Talking 14 years here.. I took one...

I've had the best results using an impact wrench as opposed to manually striking the key. If you have one and a socket type hex bit - try it. Otherwise, you may have to jam the armature shaft to stop...

My 25 year old Grainger catalog lists what looks like your unit as 3Z967B, but that is for the whole compressor, not just the pump. Maybe it had a tank replacement surgery. Call up Grainger with that...

strange

My Liberty is of the 2008 vintage and it came with the warranty. I believe you have a 42RLE transaxle in the 300, just like my Jeep. Want to just look at the fluid? A long piece of wire rope will do...

You the original owner? Have a lifetime powertrain warranty? Then take it to the dealer because they require a once in 5 years inspection of engine/transmission as part of the warranty. If you bought...

better pictures of the nameplate

Whatever that motor is, you know it's not a true 5 horse. You would need a magnetic starter for a 5hp one or you'd be burning pressure switches like matches. It's...

Maybe

A larger ID hose will improve the performance for sure if a) the tool itself is in good shape, b) the compressor is capable of keeping up with the volume and pressure required by the tool to run at...

Hate to say this, but if you're going to buy new, then buy cheap. New, smaller band saws all have the same fatal flaw - there's no real frame in them. So they'll flex when pushed hard and not cut...

I have had limited success with electrolysis for large, expensive taps and dies. It converts rust into hard black oxide, so not so much metal is lost. Look into it. But I honestly agree with...

You can still get shields, rests and screens from Baldor. Their parts support is amazing, but.. it won't be cheap. Your best bet is to look for a used one with all the parts in place. As far as the...

You need clearance between the rotor and end plates. 0.001 to 0.0015. Did you use a shim when you pressed it all together? If the rotor bites into an end plate, nothing is going anywhere.

Definitely check the capacitor. If it's okay, check the centrifugal switch to see if it's stuck open. If the switch is okay, check the start windings for continuity. And so on :) But it sounds like a...

Genie screwdrive troubleshooting

When activated, the motor just gives a short burst (about a second) and stops immediately. A lot of humming and staining seem to be happening too. I disconnected the door, same thing with no load....

P/s

Seems that your new pressure switch has a 120 cut-in and 150 pound cut-out pressure rating. Is it an adjustable kind? If you're only pumping the tank up to 125, it will not put adequate pressure on...

Seems people either love them or hate them. I have a 750X - works just fine for quick touch-ups. The one thing that isn't worth a damn on it is the point splitting feature. So I never use it.

I would take the head off and look at what is happening with the reed valves. They often get stuck or damaged. If the exhaust valve is bent or stuck in a closed position, you may be trying to pump...

I've seen home made base plates welded to the armature housing. Don't ask me how the varnish didn't melt off the windings, all I know is that it worked ;)

"Is this due to the size of the tank that is preventing it from getting constant air flow?"

It's due to the combination of motor and pump not producing enough cfm to efficiently run the tool. The...

Start/run

Here is an advice, please take it for what it's worth since I can't see or try anything. Your motor has two separate windings, start and run. Identify and isolate them by pulling back on the...

brass vs steel

Get both! You'll be glad you did when you tap out a threaded axle without any mushrooming.

Even though it rotated with no load, check the clutch anyway. Could be damaged, partially stuck or worn out to a point where a little resistance will make it slip.
