Re: Urgent RMV issue for Massachusetts Car Guys

Ok I do not think this will affect YOM plates. This is for people who need to spend extra money to have a Red Sox insignia or whale or teacher on their plate. The plates look identical except for...

Re: Bodywork on Fender

At Pro Shaper they use naval jelly and cover it with saran wrap overnight so it does not dry out. Does a surprisingly nice job.

Re: 52 Rear Axle Bearing

I had my axles out to replace the third member gasket. I did not notice any up and down movement on the bearing but there was excessive side play. I found Timkin bearings at Rock Auto. They're...

Re: some days just dont go too good

Maybe pressurize with air first and check for leaks by spring joints with soapy water. Then all that dripping soapy water can be used to clean the mess you're not going to make.

He said he felt I owed it to him and I just sent it to see if his rich ass would cash it after he knew he screwed up. I believe he knew in the long run he did. When you act like something is not...

Re: Water in the oil

Did you warm it up before you changed it? A certain amount of condensation can form in the oil. The amount you are talking about does not seem enough to worry about but keep an eye on the oil level.
