A friend has this Thinkpad/Lenovo keyboard for a long time, but the right mouse button was becoming erratic. We decided to disassemble and clean it and try to fix the right mouse button. on the back of the keyboard, CEM-2015-05-29 Rev W02 Fru PIN 03X8715

Prying the Clamshell Apart
Turning the keyboard over there are rubber pads on each corner and one in the middle. These do not have screws underneath, so disregard them. This is a plastic clamshell. I used a credit card to pry open the clamshell from the USB port, and then used a flat head screwdriver to pry the two halves part. The front bezel comes apart easily.

Toro CCR 2000 snowblower, Mikuni Carb 38180 diagram, 1995
Raining, it is today and 14C, but my new-to-me Toro CCR 2000 snowblower, last winter, started once, sputtered and quit. I changed the plug but it did not restart, so I had to resort to my trusty Canadian Tire snowblower, which I do maintain. The Toro needs a carb clean, which I will do today.
The Toro CCR 2000 snowblower circa 1995 is much more famous than my Canadian Tire model # 318-180-515, 3-21″ model.

Few tools are required, it is pretty easy and it should take you a leisurely 30 minutes. Here it goes:
Fender Mustang Controls: If you do not like the 24 amp models then change them with the Fuse software
Fender’s Mustang guitar amp is a very cool modeling amp, with 24 preset types of amp sounds. It is also a very flexible amp. Unfortunately for some players who like an acoustic or clean sound, most of the presets are way too aggressive and dirty, with lots of distortion. Have no fear, because with the Fender Fuse software and USB cable that comes with the amp the Fender Mustang can clean up pretty well, turning your solid body double humbucker into an acoustic.
