    Yup, 100% agree with Rob. Have a friend and make a day of it. Wrench, drink some beers, eat some junk food, wrench some more.

    It can be a bit of a pain in the butt, particularly so if have fasteners that are rusted in place, or spinning in their captive nuts. It is also quite awkward lowering and raising up the radiator...

    You can also squeeze them a little tighter with some pliers. Just don't squeeze so tight that they won't go back on the resistor.

    Old as heck hoses and clamps can behave in strange ways in the cold. You're on the right path; replace all of the hoses and clamps. There are a few hoses underneath the intake manifold that you...

    Wish that rack had been available when I replaced my original rack. Sounds like a nice improvement.

    I've had mine blow out as well. Mine was zip tied in place, so it wasn't catastrophic, but it sure as hell wasn't good. I'll have to get one of those pipes well.

    This, I'm afraid, is a pretty complex question without a singular, simple answer. It really comes down to your usage of the vehicle, and what needs you have. I have Grundy for both my DeLorean and...

    Be sure to have an accurate/correctly calibrated torque wrench when tightening down the banjo bolts. The torque values are low, and it is very easy to break the bolts.

    First thing to do is to make sure that the hose clamps are nice and tight. Cheap (as in free), easy to do, and my experience has been that it is simply a loose hose clamp frequently.
