I am a former professional auto mechanic (Porsche and numerous foreign marques). I am currently a semi-retired computer programmer. My hobbies include motorcycles both riding and wrenching. Home automation. I like to pay it forward to the gear-head community what little I know. Having said that... I will not respond to rhetorical questions or blatant attempts to troll against my contributions. I periodically write articles on a blog about my projects. You may find those here: Timbocephus

Rispondi a "Left mouse button does not drag and drop"Apparently this is a common issue with these. Mine lasted about 8 yrs before the left switch started going flaky. I would have fixed with a new micro switch but the above guide from “prop man” gives a link to the switches that says “not available” currently. More supply chain woes I guess. :( I Bought a new one for $18. Next time I will cannabilize the right switch from this old one and save my money. I have just recently started doing a lot of data entry into genealogy web sites that must have spelled the end for it.
Rispondi a "Honda Accord 1997 just quit starting.. making ng humming sound under d"This sounds like one of: 1) dirty (corroded) battery terminals … clean them 2) dead battery … charge it 3) failed battery or charging system … replace battery … repair charging system However, if you have or can borrow some jumper cables… will it start with those connected to a good battery?
Rispondi a "What size bearing front hub"https://www.ebay.com/itm/144136709688?ch...-213727-13078-0&mkcid=2&itemid=144136709688&targetid=4...-4580702890871448&abcId=9300602&merchanti... or take it apart and measure them and order as appropriate.
Rispondi a "Hard Drive not showing up"Read this: WD External Hard drive isn't accesible or take my word for it… You may be stuck with whatever services WD may offer to recover your data. In future: There are many cheap usb 3.0 enclosures for any standard sata drive of your choice. Such a device will be far more reliable than anything marketed under the name you have posted this question under.
Rispondi a "I pulled the rear view mirror off the window. Needs to stick to window"Go to an auto parts store and buy a mirror glue kit. Follow the instructions included with the kit. Wait the required time for curing the glue of the base plate to glass connection. Remount the mirror. Done. Cleaning the old glue and oil (from your fingertips even) off the window and the base plate is important!
Rispondi a "Could you tear down an iPad without heating the Glass?"Did you read the ifixit procedure for doing this ? Then the answer appears to be yes they did it wrong.
Rispondi a "Welding points on Flex cables"It might help you to Add images to existing questions.
Rispondi a "TV all of a sudden not working in one room; works in others."It is not obvious to me that “it is not a cable problem”. That is exactly what it looks like to me or at worst problem with the HDMI socket of the TV or the connections boards etc. Also the TV turning itself on is totally abnormal as well.
Rispondi a "Remove foreign object from engine cylinder"If you are talking wooden/graphite pencil I would not be too concerned, it will leave via the exhaust port pretty quickly with the engine running. The materials in a pencil are not hard enough to cause any damage. I don’t believe the wedge heads of a Corvair engine pose any risk of piston energy being transferred to the actual valve heads either. Many more modern designs with hemispherical head and canted valve configurations could pose a risk with soft materials like pencil fragments becoming captured under an open valve lip as it closes leading to piston valve interference damage. I don’t expect that could happen with the Corvair engine though. If you are OCD you might decide to dismantle or try using a borescope and a flexible tool to grab and extract the piece(s). Back in the day (1970’s) we routinely removed fragments of VW accelerator pump arms that fell into those engines from the Solex carburetors (a common failure mode). The fix was pouring about 16 ounces of tap water down the carburetor at...
Rispondi a "Why are the two times on my tablet different? Upper right corner and"(1) Check in the settings on the home screen widget and see if the time zone has been set incorrectly. (2) Also check settings->system->date&time and see what time zone you have set there. (3) Correct whichever is needed.
