Did Sears import Aya Aguirre Aranzabal side-by-side 20 gauge shotguns?

Answer

I never saw an AyA shotgun in a Sears catalog and I'd seriously doubt Sears ever sold them. Here's why. The AyA is a part for part direct copy of the English-made Purdey, which is one of the finest shotguns in the world. AyAs aren't cheap. Back in the '70s I saw an AyA double gun, field model, go for about $750. That's the last one I saw sold, so I don't know what their current value is. TexasCharley

--- Actually, yes they did. ---

Aya does make some best-quality guns, primarily sidelocks, but they ALSO made the boxlock Matador series. The original Matadors were imported by Firearms International in the 1960's, then Sears imported a later version in the early 1970's. Relatively plain, unadorned gun but solid. Resale value in the $400-$600 range.

To complicate this a little more, I have to add that they sold a "J.C. Higgins" model 100 that was a very high quality gun with ejectors. They sell for $400 to $700 dollars today, and many experts believe they were produced to the standards of the Winchester model 21 or higher, and model 21 Winchesters sell for several thousands of dollars today, depending on model and condition.

How do you change the brake pads on 1997 Saab 900se turbo?

Take off the brake calipers, but let the brake line be mounted. Attach the caliper to a string so that it does not hang by the brake hose. Take out the old brake pads. Compress the pistons together. You may need a special Saab tool for this. Apply some copper paste or similar grease to the sides of the caliper and mount the new brake pads. Check that everything runs smoothly before mounting everything back together.

Where is the relay for the air suspension on a 98 Lincoln Navigator?

This relay is under the front bumper just under the a/c compressor you have to lay on your back and look straight up you will see it........It didnt solve my problems

Your right - it is located under the front bumper near the a/c compressor. But it did not help me to reset it. I ended up call Strutmasters after a friend told me about them. The Customer Service Team member was really helpful with the information he gave me. I ended up converting my 98 Lin. Navigator over to a Passive conversion Kit. I did away with all the air problems and ended up spending less money in the long run.

The ride is very compatible to the air - no it does not ride exactly like the air -but it is very nice and now I do not have to keep paying out money to fix my air problems I was having.

If a 1980 Honda CM 400E is having a hard time starting after a couple days parked what type of service do you need?

Start simple. Replace the spark plugs. If it still acts up, you may need to tear the carbs down and clean them/rebuild them. Check also to make sure your air filter is in good shape.

The key broke off in the ignition of your 1992 Mercedes Benz?

If the key is still in the ignition, leave it there! Use your spare key to open and lock the doors as you continue to drive it. Get it to a reliable mechanic. He/she will remove the entire ignition and have a duplicate key made. If you try to repair it yourself, you may wind up having to re-key the entire vehicle and this can be much more expensive. Good luck.

How to change front brakes on a 1996 eagle talon esi?

real simple. take of wheels. there are two bolts that hold the unit in place. one on each end of the calipers. take them both out and the whole unit comes off. compress the pistons to put the new brakes in and voila. I think its important to also note that you need to pump the brake to reset the caliper before starting to drive anywhere. Just trust me on that one.

Do you have to bleed the system when you change your brake pads?

NO. You should not open the hydraulic system to replace your pads. Any time you open you hydraulic system, you should bleed, but that is not a requirement of a pad change. "Bleeding" the brakes is terminology hailing back to earlier hydraulic braking systems such as the drum/shoe brake. It simply means adding hydraulic fluid to the reservoir on the engine firewall and pumping the brake pedal to work the fluid through the master cylinder and down the feed lines to the wheels, where existing fluid in the lines can be squirted out through "bleed screws" at each wheel. The purpose of this is a) to get fresh fluid in the system and b) to get air bubbles out of the system. If there are any air bubbles in the system they will cause loss of transfer of braking pressure from the pedal. In other words, the pedal will be squishy and often go to the floor, while little or no pressure is extended to the brake components. In current disc brake systems, you may not need to bleed the brakes with a simple pad change. However, if your pads are completely worn down you will find the caliper pistons have had to travel a significant distance out of their well in order to maintain contact with the shims on the backs of the pads. The new pad replacements will have up to 3/8" each of new material on them, requiring that the pistons be pushed back into their wells to accommodate the increased thickness. Pushing the pistons back requires the fluid behind them to also be pushed back up the lines. Although in pre-ABS brake systems you can merely take the top off the fluid reservoir and if necessary remove some of the potential back-flow as the pistons are pushed back into their wells, in ABS brakes there are valves which prevent this and hence it is suggested that you open the bleeder screws in the calipers and let the fluid come out of there. This will reduce the overall amount of fluid in the brake lines, of course, and it will be necessary to check the amount of loss by inspecting the level in the reservoir, and bringing it back up between the min/max indicator as needed. Whenever you open the bleeder screws in a brake system it is always a possibility that air bubbles can enter. Thus it is wise not to open the screws so much that fluid runs out by gravity rather than by pressure at the piston or the pedal. Also, make sure that you re-tighten the bleeder screw once you find that the caliper piston is retracted enough to slide the caliper over the newly installed brake pad/shim assembly.

How do you change brake pads on a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500?

Buy yourself a Haynes manual and follow directions. Mine was easy (front pads) its a 93. Yours, being newer may have disc brakes on all four wheels? That should be very easy. Spend about 14 bucks at AutoZone or Pep Boys for the Haynes manual for the truck, its not too tech, and it will get you by.

Why won't EC disengage on Mercedes-Benz?

1. it could be the brake light switch they give trouble .replace it even if the brake lights work they have a 4 pin connector.the selector module need a brake pedal switch signal 2 let it out of park etc

2. I don't know what this person thinks the ec light is but if your talking about the ec light on the climate control, ec stands for economy, which turns off the compressor and stops giving you cold air, but uses less gas, thus being more ecomnomic to turn it off.

the reason your light is stuck on is because your system is out of refrigerent which is causing the system to have low pressure and automatically shutsdown. you most likely have a leak. you could have the system recharged, and have them put die in the system then the mechanic can find the leak with a uv light. also the ec light needs to be turned off by a Mercedes mechanic because the compressor will not turn on and you will not be able to add refrigerent until the code is cleared.

How do you open the hood of 420 SEL?

The hood release is just above the foot brake under the dashboard next to the drivers left leg. The trickey part is locating the final hood release. After releasing the hood with the lever hidden by the emergency brake pedal look for a small gray t-shaped protrusion from the grill. Pull it to release the hood.

How to change front brakes on a 05 liberty renegade?

This is taken from the 2003 Jeep Libery Renegade Service manual. Done many break jobs (disc) and most (99.8%) are done this way....Hope this helps.

REMOVAL - REAR DISC BRAKE PADS

1- Raise and support vehicle.
2-Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.
3-Compress the caliper. (I used a big vice-grips, just be sure not to damage caliper. They cost a lot.)
4-Remove the caliper.
5- Remove the caliper by tilting the top up and off the caliper adapter.

NOTE: DO NOT ALLOW BRAKE HOSE TO SUPPORT CALIPER ASSEMBLY.

6-Support and hang the caliper.
7-Remove the inboard brake pad from the caliper adapter.
8-Remove the outboard brake pad from the caliper adapter.

INSTALLATION

1-Bottom pistons in caliper bore with C-clamp. (before removing old pad, I use vice to bottom, i.e. push it in as far as you can into caliper ALWAYS protect the outside of caliper with ...heavy cloth, thin wood,etc,etc..as long as it is not metal to metal to damage it)
2- Clean caliper mounting adapter and anti-rattle springs. i.e. make sure there isn't any junk/dust/metal flakes/etc,etc that will cause problems
3-Lubricate anti-rattle springs with Mopar brake grease. i.e. Any grease will do.
4- Install anti-rattle springs.

NOTE: Anti-rattle springs are not interchangeable.

5-Install inboard brake pad in adapter.
6-Install outboard brake pad in adapter.
7-Tilt the top of the caliper over rotor and under adapter. Then push the bottom of the caliper down onto the adapter.
8-Install Caliper.
9-Install wheel and tire assemblies and lower vehicle.
10-Apply brakes several times to seat caliper pistons and brake shoes and obtain firm pedal.
11-Top off master cylinder fluid level.

Thats it. By myself and no kids-wife-dog around I could do the job in about an hour..including tool cleanup and put away.

Battery works starter will not turn Is it the starter?

That is not anywhere near enough information to make a determination about the status of the starter.

Could be the starter, but could be the starter solenoid, wiring problems or even the ignition switch.
