In Topic: Siamese Extractor

09 August 2017 - 02:29 PM

gun parts corp has them in stock part number #8500. From looking at the extractor  collar are sure that a standard 98 LR extractor will not work? 


I am assuming when you say your rifle uses 7.62 x 54R you mean the gun uses the Rusiian cartridge. I am concerned about the case rupture.


Do you know why the case ruptured?


Was it old ammo possible damaged ammo. bad brass? 


If the rifle was mine i would check to see if a standard 98 LR extractor would fit the bolt. If it does fit, please remember the extractor will have to be modified for the Russian ammo

McCain stopped the repeal effort for no other reason than spite. This is why people have lost faith in government. We need repeal along with tax cuts and regulatory reform. guess we the people are just screwed again.

SO after nearly 2000 years we learn that human nature doesnt change.


I wonder if the Romans had a fly by night democrat or fake news problem.

Back at the end of May we all got an email announcing it was, "87 days until Women's Equality Day."  I wrote the public affairs lady back and said that there is not one male nurse leader in the hospital.  One week later she wrote back and wrote, "Comment noted."  This morning in the hospital newsletter it was announced again. This time there was a quote from Bella Abzug: "Women will not simply be mainstreamed into the polluted stream. Women are changing the stream, making it clean and green and safe for all - every gender, race, creed, sexual orientation, age, and ability." I was insulted as a man. Then I saw the signature on the email of the public relations woman, something to the effect that women clear mens' vision. I wrote back that my wife and I read it, and it was bashing men, just like is popular in colleges and in the media. When is our day of equality? She sent me back a flippant answer that she said these things to provoke conversation! I wrote EEO office. Well, seems I wasn't the only one to object, and this womans' pinfeathers are now clipped. Everything of this sort must now be previewed by EO office before sending it out. The email was pulled back (too late for most of us). 


I dont know FC; since a womans reproduction organs are on the inside it seems to me they have special powers. Or at least that's how i'm told it works. 

In Topic: Brain Storming Car Problem

I have rebuilt several staters in my life time and still keep on the shelf, parts to rebuild MT10, MT30 and MT35 Delco starters.


I had a similar probelm with an MT10 delco starter. The problm was a short on the Communtator. One contact on the communtator was shorted, while the rest were fine.


 When the starter would try to start from that one shorted communtator conctact the battery seemed to be dead. You could wait a little and allow the battery to rest the starter would then work.


What happens is this; when you have a short in the comuntator on one contact, it still allows the starter to move slightly, even though it seems that the battery is dead. When you let the vehicle set and return and try again the starter may now work because the slight rotation from an earlier attempt allows the starter to get past the shorted contact on the communtator.


A short in the communtator kills a battery fast and the voltage drain/loss causes your system to restart. While your battery is 2 years old, shorting it out like this will shorten battery life.


You can test for a bad comuntator contact by using a ohm meter. 


My call is your starter is bad
