It might also be wise to replace your Dzus Fastener with a Zerk Fitting.

Easy - Just skip the Gold-Plated version and order the primer coated one.

I was thinking of using self-sealing stem bolts for that application. Don't you think they would work?

It sounds like you may be losing some compression through the radio.

Already fixed that problem with duct/duck tape and zip ties! Thanks for the suggestion

I researched your problem thoroughly and found the answer on page 137 of the parts manual, as soon as I can find someone to translate the manual from the original Manderin I will forward the solution to you. In the meantime Crazy Glue and toothpicks may hold the wingnut to the watchamacalit together until a fix can be found.

I did install a reverse ratcheting router in the galley but it caused the maladjustment of the factorial modulator.

Have you tried changing the grease in the zerk fitting on the wobbly shaft? May need a 7/8 allen wrench or left handed pliers.

I had that very same problem once and at first I thought it was a low flux level in the capacitor reserve tank. After a 4 corner weigh I realized that the level of the reservoir was exactly the same as the black tank which coincidentally was the same as the fuel tank. I then plumbed them in series and to my amazement the problem disappeared. There were pluses and minuses to this fix. Since then I have never had to dump the black tank, I get way better fuel mileage and due to exhaust emissions I never have tailgators. The downside is it now runs a little rough and you have to drive the $#!* out of it to keep it going. My question to all is, can you recommend a fuel additive that will help with the flatulator valve output.

All the parts are on sale at inflated rates at our favorite chain RV store. They all are on back order, and listed as clearance items only. Low priority shipping. High shipping prices guarantee delivery within a month. Some items may need prescriptions from your mechanic.

This should do the trick. Make sure you measure carefully, there have been reports of serious injuries, not to mention black spots on the ceiling, due to over usage.
