    Dangerous. We've seen quite a few windshields that crack right around the mount from this. Most likely parking in the sun on hot days. I've seen others with the mirror glued like that and NOT broken,...

    The bar on the muffler is stainless, but the sleeve is mild steel so it rusts and sticks to the stainless. If you really pull on it you'll separate the rubber from the sleeve. At that point you can...

    No. He means whatever limits the shocks travel in one direction or the other. Typically a large rubber bushing on the shock rod to limit the compression direction, or an internal bumper to limit...

    You could just extract the pin and tape it off, but I can't imagine why you'd ever want to reverse this. Cut the wire on the pump side as shown and you haven't damaged anything that was "original" to...

    You can heat and straighten the eyebrows, then reinforce from behind with 1/8" x 3/4" galvanized steel embedded in urethane adhesive.

    It is very difficult to close up the gap because that is...

    Brake fluid? I think the implication is that you shouldn't leave a pint of fluid in the container and then pump it into the car later. Brake fluid absorbs moisture etc etc. Just empty it after use...

    I've had one car in here where they stripped the header panel and then grained it like the rest of the stainless. Just didn't look right to my eye. People seem to have some success with powder...

    But the side pieces are not stainless, so you end up with kind of a disconnected look.

    Hey I get to post one! Today I replaced my fuel pump with one of the DMCH all-in-one units. The one in the car (Bosch unit that I installed in 1998) was still working, but the rubber boot was turning...

    Short cycling is normal at cooler temperature/lower fan speed/higher engine speed. It's really hard to generalize. The cycling is caused by the low pressure switch monitoring low side pressure,...

    The best way to install a new radio? Cut the plug off the car harness. Leave 2 inches or so of wire on the plug in the very off-chance you ever want to hook it back up. You won't. The new radio will...

    Make sure you see examples of their work or get references from local customers. Wheels America is a franchise and the work can range from good to awful.

    The knobs would work fine. The radio will stick out the dash too far and look dumb, and with only one of them it won't be straight or will rattle.

    Depends on the radio. Many modern high powered units do not like having any of the speaker wiring connected together, each speaker channel needs 2 wires to the radio unit.

    Be careful using that plug on a modern radio, it common-grounds all the speakers. Not enough wires.

    The pipe actually comes out with or after the tank. Remove both hoses, drop the tank (not actually a "drop" more like a "force" - you'll find it very wedged in place), and the pipe will fall out. Fun...

    Bill never mentioned that when we were talking about the problem. Argh. I hate to bad-mouth things, but I've only seen a couple of those units on cars and they were always defective. And then I have...

    They don't break very often. I've had to replace a couple over a 10 year period, and was always able to scrounge up a used one. So it hasn't been worth the effort to deal with having a bunch of them...

    More likely the gauge itself, or the calibration resistor on the back of it. I've seen the calibration resistor fail on fuel gauges several times, not on a temp gauge. I've seem a couple of temp...

    When you replaced the slave, what did you use for a seal where the adapter joins the slave? OEM is a plastic seal, and I've seen a couple that would not leak but would somehow let air in. That should...
