    Well. I'd bet money helicopter was at one time one of those kids that screamed out a random answer in school regardless of being called upon, knowing the answer or even having a question pending. If...

    [Electrical] The splines on the arms (which I believe are...

    The splines on the arms (which I believe are aluminum) can wear out and if you tighten the nut too much trying to get them to work, you’ll pinch the whole post/mechanism and it won’t work at all....

    If you don’t know how old the oil is then change it. If you think it’s contaminated then drain it instead of circulating it further. If there is coolant in it, you’ll know.

    Yes, at the time I did have to replace the fuel distributor.

    The pressure tester has no other uses and unless you work on multiple vehicles, it makes more sense to rent one than to buy one.

    I should clarify my post to say if you don't know how old the gas is, get it out of there. Then you can change the filter and run the clearer through to see what happens. I clear the tank by removing...

    You should start by pressure testing the cooling system to rule it out instead of guessing.

    Ethanol fuel goes bad much faster than a year, it is stated to last up to three months but I notice it...

    Tell her you’ll give her a “money paid guarantee” once the car arrives in your driveway with title, since the shipping company has it in their possession free of charge anyway.

    If it's too good to be true....


    I'd be reporting the ad and moving on. No shipping company wants to hold a car that may or may not sell and not only that, a shipping company wouldn't even be...

    After using the Multi-Strip Advanced ($15 on Amazon-I used the 1 quart gel), I would suggest you give it a try. The topcoat literally dripped right off the car onto the ground. My problem is that it...

    I’m experimenting with “Multi Strip Advanced” right now on a car from the 50’s. I’ll let you know if it’s any good. Supposed to remove up to 15 layers.

    When they removed methylene chloride from paint strippers, I had a real problem finding a solution to stripping paint from cars, especially ones from the 50s where it could have multiple coats of...

    MT0097-1 for standard or MT0629 for VOV (variable) at Autozone or one that fits an 84 Corvette 5.7 at other stores. I've used both types and with the VOV I would get a weird hissing gurgling noise...

    Huh?

    You can get the pressure switch at most auto parts stores. There is nothing wrong with the switch design or being plastic, however, it will leak no matter what if you didn't put an o-ring on...

    :hysterical:

    Really what it boils down to is that I couldn't let the helicopter man's "more expertise" comment go as it just isn't so. I do work on many different cars and engines of all different...

    Curious about how you protect your filters from rain/water? I have my filter exposed as well and had to build a plate above it to protect it.

    Since you enjoy cutting things so much, you can lower the risk by cutting the accumulator into sections to remove it. You can cut it in a way so that you're only left with the fitting to the...

    I don't think so. We might have started the same displacement long ago, but now Josh's engine is bigger than mine. I'm sure he's got bigger calipers hanging than I do too.
