Sometimes U can use a 90? pair of needle nose pliers or U can pull off the 2 small bolts holding the plate on-then take thick grease & put on the shaft & install the pump FAST or there is a bolt INFRONT of the engine that goes through 2 that rod-take out the short bolt & install a longer bolt(3/8 corse thread) 2 slightly put pressure on the FALLING out rod.Sometimes U need 2 put a taper on the longer bolt(JUST ON THE END) 2 hold the rod in place.then REINSTALL the ORIGINAL bolt BEFORE U START THE ENGINE.

Synonyms are important in communication because if the person you are communicating with does not fully understand the meaning of a certain word, a synonym can be helpful in replacing that word with one they better understand.

Rattling brakes on 1996 Chevy pickup?

If you front brakes rattle, it is usually caused by a a stuck puck or piston in your brake assembly. When this happens, the piston does not fully retract at times causing you brake pad or pads to wear excessibly and when the piston finally retracts fully and does not keep constant pressure on your pads you get a rattle. I had this problem on my F-150 and the brake guy solved this by installing steel pucks and lube.
