How do you install a toilet with awkward bend in waste pipe?

The bend in the pipe can be ignored as long as the drain is even at the floor. The pipe can be coming out of the floor at an angle and it will still work. Cut the pip flush with the floor and use a metal floor flange screwed down to the floor. The flange and the pipe do not need to be joined together, the wax ring will make the connection.

If you have a 4 cast iron stack with a 4 outlet to the toilet and the pipe coming up to the toilet is lead how do you attach a toilet flange to this 4 lead pipe?

The flange is actually a ring that the lead comes up through the middle of. The ring is secured to the floor and the lead is beat down against the flange. T would actually consider doing away with this lead bend as they are currently 50 years old or older. That is to say they stopped using them about 50 years ago and they are currently failing in a lot of homes. I w3ould cut the lead out leaving the brass stub in the cast iron where the lead attached, and repipe with PVC to that brass stub and attatch it with a fernco coupling. Three inch PVC will slide right inside that brass stub to make a real nice connection,Answerif you have the pipe flush with the finish floor you can get a plastic flange with a rubber ty seal gasket around it. this will fit inside the 4" pipe. or if the lead is exposed you can snap it at the cast iron and transition to plastic.

Why is brass used in a 3 pin plug?

Brass is used for the manufacture of plug pins for the following reasons. It is a good electrical conductor and is cheaper than other materials such as copper. It is a hard alloy material, therefore it is very wear resistant and will not wear or mark easily. Furthermore, Brass is corosion resistant and will not tarnish easily. Brass is also stiff and therefore will not bend easily when inserted in to the socket.

Where is the engine number located on a corsa b?

To find the engine number on a Corsa B, locate the engine oil dipstick. Look behind the dipstick and there is a flange just below where the first bend in the dipstick is. This flange will have the engine number. Some models of the Corsa B might have the engine number below the intake manifold on the front of the motor.

How do you replace a rear transmission seal on a 1985 Toyota pickup auto trans.22r engine.?

I think the standard answer, applies here. Remove the drive shaft. Using a tool, like a screw driver, or anything kinda pointed, and a hammer, pry between the housing and the seal, until you bend the outer flange of the seal enough to grab it with pliers, and twist it out. You can also, drill a small hole, in the flange, and screw in a screw, until the screw is in the flange far enough, that you can grap it with a pair of pliers and yank both of them out.

Does steel bend?

What are the uses of a bimetallic strip?

Bimetallic strips were commonly used in thermostats. The two metals would expand at different rates and therefore bend. When a bimetallic strip, made of iron and brass [or any other metals] is heated, both metals expand differently, causing the bimetallic strip to bend. These bimetallic strips are used in fire alarms. The heat of the fire, causes the brass and iron strips to expand, ultimately resulting in the bending of the bimetallic strip, which on bending touches the screw adjacent to it, thus completing the circuit. Once the circuit is complete, the bell begins to ring. Thus the brass bends more than the steel, but on cooling, contracts more than the steel, thus causing the bimetallic strip to bend in the opposite direction.

Can the engine on a 1997 cavalier be removed frop the top?

Simply put....Yes they can. I dont have a lift and have done it many times. But I did have to bend the corner of the battery tray just a little.Just bend it back after you install the engine-tranny combo. On the 2.4L it will also make it easier if you "either" remove the intake manifold or the exhaust pipe,(for more clearance for the transmission to get by the exhaust pipe flange when lifted).
