What do mechanics do when fixing a speedometer?

Question by eric wilkerson: What do mechanics do when fixing a speedometer?
I wanted to know what do mechanics do when fixing this? Do they go ahead and buy a whole used instrument cluster (if so what about the miles on the used instrument cluster) or do they go ahead and fix it?

Best answer:

Answer by MasTec 1970
You forgot to provide the vehicle information YMM (year, make ,model) without this information there is no way to know what type of IPC (instrument panel cluster) the vehicle has!

ADDED: If it is a newer vehicle the IPC’s are refurbished and not replaced! (because then they have to be reprogrammed to the vehicles PCM with the VIN# and Mileage) but without the vehicle info. these are ALL guesses!

How do I get a better Bass(Kick) Drum sound?

Question by Ben: How do I get a better Bass(Kick) Drum sound?
I can’t help feel my bass(kick) drum sounds like cr*p. It resonates way too much, and its not a deep quick sound as it should be. How can I fix this? I have a pillow in the case, and there is no hole on the outside-facing head. Any tips?

Best answer:

Answer by MusicMan10
First, you should know that the bass drum sound that you hear on recordings and at concerts has been changed by the microphones and the EQ settings that they use on the soundboard, the bass drum is actually resonating more than what you can hear. If the bass drum doesn’t resonate, it will be way too quiet.

I used a pillow when I first started playing drums about 10 years ago, but that is something that I shouldn’t have done. It makes the bass sound really dead. Now I use the Evans EMAD 2 bass batter. It has a built in foam ring that gets rid of the higher pitched sounds and keeps the bass drum from resonating too much.

On the resonant head, I take a strip of felt that is a few inches wide and place it several inches off center across the opening of the shell then place the head over it. Then pull the felt strip so that it is not loose underneath the head and then tune the head. Finally, cut the excess felt off.

You could even put another strip of felt to the other side of the center to add more muffling. If you don’t buy the EMAD 2 head, You can use 1 or 2 felt strips on the batter head as well. Experiment with the placement and width of the felt strips till you find a sound that you like.

Also make sure that the head is tightend evenly at each lug. Tap the head with a stick near each lug and tighten or loosen that lug until the pitch is about the same at each place that you hit with your stick.

I need a few tips regarding spyware?

Question by Durp: I need a few tips regarding spyware?
I’ve got a severe spy ware problem, and I’ve yet to come across a program that will give me the fix I need. It opens up pages on its own, it tries to get me to download some Anti-Virus, and I’ve remedied the problem with some quick blocks; but I know it’s not fixed. I’ve yet to try superantispyware, but this is very concerning, seeing as this is not my own personal laptop. I have no idea how the spy ware got on the computer, I’m VERY picky about thing sites I visit, and what I download. I just need some suggestions as how to get rid of this problem, and any things I can do to prevent this from occurring in the future.

Best answer:

Answer by tempo1
It is very likely a Smitfraud infection. Fake and phony ‘warnings’ to try and con you into purchasing a rogue software to ‘fix’ the problem.

It should actually be called extortion-ware. First they infect your computer and then they want money to ‘cure’ it.

All of these are specialised removal tools for this type of fake, rogue advertising of useless malware removal softwares. (Zlob/Smitfraud infections.).

Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (MBAM):

SmitfraudFix:

RogueFix:

I would try MBAM first, myself.

Almost all “general purpose”,”all-in one” spyware and virus removal programs such as AVG Anti-virus, Norton, McAfee or Spybot S & D cannot remove it, as you may have already found out.

getting access to old hard drive with password prompt?

Question by Paulbo B: getting access to old hard drive with password prompt?
I got a new pc and have turned the old hard drive into a external hardrive. However, when i open it and try to view files/pics/music, etc, it says I do not have permission to view the objects. How do I change the security set up so I can access my old hard drive?

I already tried changing ownership, no luck.
I also tried changing settings in security, no luck.
TIM: I have no idea what all of that means. The old hard drive was one style plug, so i went to a external drive case to get around the Ceta(sp?) style plug. I can view all the folders and files, I just cannot get into specific pics,songs, etc in each folder.

If I add the hardrive to a non Ceta style PC and boot it, i just need to add my password to get into it.

Best answer:

Answer by Tim W
And your sure you dont have any other type of encryption/lock on the files other than NTFS?

Do you have access to the drive at all? Or are you locked out at the root?

What happens when you try to take ownership?

You may need to try to hook it up to a Linux/Unix OS and see if that will get around the permissions issue.

Q&A: How do I fix chain on ceiling fan?

Question by Heather: How do I fix chain on ceiling fan?
The chains that you pull to turn the light and fan on and off broke off inside. Is there a way to fix it?
there is actually no wall switch, i forgot to mention that. we live in a apartment and the people before us werent that smart.

The ONLY way to turn it on and off is with the chain cords. Or of course to unplug it.

Best answer:

Answer by chicagirl51
Turn the power off to the ceiling fan by flipping the switch to off on the wall. Take the screws out of the part where you pull on the chain. Remove in and you may be able to reconnect the chain.

Q&A: Can we repair a leaking under ground line to our inground pool ourselves?

Question by hotrn: Can we repair a leaking under ground line to our inground pool ourselves?
When we turned on our pool pump dirty water came up between the cracks of the concrete around our pool. Can we fix it ourselves, and how? How difficult is this to do? This is a new pool for us (just bought the home). It appears to be a concrete pool.

Best answer:

Answer by jitterbugjims
if this is your first pool you might want to leave it to a pro.
they will come in and pressure test all the lines[skimmer, main drain, and returns] and be able to get an approximate area the the leak is.though you see water coming thru in one area,the leak may be in another area all together.water will tunnel till it finds a weak spot to the surface.plus when there is cement involved,it could be labor intensive with a lot af digging.
