    I can't imagine that a brake hose would quietly go soft & spongy. I had those same Goodrich hoses installed since '99 or 2K up until this summer. Only removed due to the installation of a Wilwood...

    Slip the pads out, the one benefit of these tiny brake pads is they're quick change style. I use a big pry bar. With the bleedscrew open they'll move.

    Open the bleeder and push the pistons all the way in. Close the bleeder.

    I should have said "trash your throw-out bearing and pressure plate".

    The stop bolt is a curious part. I can't find it in pedal box or clutch portions of the service manual. Its visible in the...

    It sounds like you have the engine running? Did you solve the sync loss problem?

    When you say you can't adjust the timing what does that mean? Do you have "fixed timing" set under Ignition...

    It would be better to have than not.

    Ask around and see if they have a bead roller, which is the best tool for the job. You can weld a bead on but that's way more prep & work. You might be able...

    There are a few options in constant torque / spring loaded / T-bolt clamps. I was a little time limited otherwise I might have explored them. Those can be pretty big and I don't think they would...

    I used a Tenhulzen 1100p caster/camber gauge. It's ok.
    There are several similar gauges on the market. You can use a ruler and a bob too.

    Many of...

    Strings kit is the BGR200. 3D models would not be of use as they are tailored for my aftermarket wheels & lugnuts. They attach to the lugnuts but with a ring that centers a multi-use pad to the...

    Y-pipe hoses are silicone but the rest were not. Will switch back to quality rubber hose at the next water pump service though as I don't see the benefit and they can be more difficult to seal. The...

    With 10 fingers you can count up to 1024 in binary. I do it all the time and am totally not a robot.

    CNFP1226 is not quite as wide as stock but works otherwise. You just need to DIY the mounting studs which is easy enough with long bolts & nuts. I've been running one since 2016 and works great for...

    I have a mix of the DPI LCAs but with KW suspension, but can answer these for you:

    Interesting data point regarding accessories consuming about 8nm (6ft/lbs).

    Was the return loop still in place? Fuel pressure is created by restriction so if you have a leakdown between primary and return the whole primary side would read low.
