Re: Scranton PA area VIN verification

Any inspection mechanic can verify it, and state police. But all I've ever had to do was take a tracing to go to PennDOT.

Re: Charging a dead battery

Didn't he say he charged it on 12 instead of 6 volts for several hours? I'd bet the battery is trashed and lucky it didn't blow it's guts. Check the points too, if you left the key on until it killed...

Re: Coil + or -

If you hook it up backwards the spark will be jumping from the bent electrode on the threaded part of the spark plug to the center electrode. Think about that.

Re: Coil + or -

If it's Bosch it was probably stolen from a VW. And like Railcarmover says 15 goes to the points. With a generator electricity moves from + to - to get to ground which the points are just that.

Re: think i got f@#$ed

What you should know better about is telling Ryan instead of airing it here. Ryan will fix it, just like on the HAMB.

Re: Temp Probe Pipe Leak

What is inside at the weld joint is called sugar. It is caused because they didn't back flow argon into the pipe before welding. They saved a few pennies in time to risk a leak.

Re: Kwik Poly

Yes, and I am sure that would have come up in the job interview. She could have refused the job right then.

Re: Water Temperature Gauge

Put it in the top radiator hose. It can be done with simple pipe fittings.

Re: Possible Radiator Problem???

Why wouldn't you have it rodded out? If it was already junk they couldn't ruin it, only fix it.

Re: What is going on with tires these days??

I have used Vredesteins on VWs for years , liked them and never had any trouble. They are still available from major tire dealers like Tire Rack so I am sure Coker is not having them made. BUT in the...

Re: Stuck engine

It doesn't HAVE to be rings, could be valves or lifters. It will get just as tight as rings.

Re: MARC ballot and Constitution change

Just wondering, how do you convince someone to join your club if they can't attend an event first? Does MARC actually insure ALL the members for liability or just the organizers.? Most clubs I belong...

Re: MARC ballot and Constitution change

But what kind of insurance do they. I doubt MARC is covering anyone injuries, just liability.

Re: MARC ballot and Constitution change

I don't have a nickle in this as I am not a member. But why would attendance be part of the constitution? If this is an insurance issue why don't they just explain that? I doubt they have insurance...
