Re: Spark Question

It only moves in a small amount - the timing pin is rounded and the timing gear is only slightly dimpled. For a better feel, file the pin to more of a point, or use a Phillips screwdriver. Remove...

Re: Radiator Overheating

Yes, the test actually draws in the air in the top of the radiator through a test liquid in the tube, and detects for exhaust gasses.


If the test passes, you can pour the liquid back into the...

Re: Radiator Overheating

Forgot to mention, not sure if it was covered, bad head gasket will also cause overheating if exhaust gasses makes their way into the coolant. In bad cases you can see air bubbles in the coolant...

Re: Radiator Overheating

Re: Radiator Overheating

When done with treatments and back flushing/flushing install a Gano upper radiator hose filter to help keep crud that might still be in the cooling system out of the radiator.

Re: Firewall Insulation

Any down side to sealing the leaks/holes with judicious (minimal) use of spray foam before adding foam blocks and insulation/sound deadening?? Do rodents like the spray foam, and other reasons?

Re: Introducion

As a FYI, I thought that also, until a milk truck pulled out in front of me and threw a piece of gravel at my new Bergs radiator, rock must have hit my radiator at 40-60 mph. Created a heck...

Re: Any electronic experts out there

Good point, I would do both belt and wiring. I am assuming it has the issue all the time, but as Badpuppy notes would not let it run for more than a few minutes in case it wants to overheat.

Re: No electricity. No crank. No horn

Re: Temperature Gauge Leak

That is also what I have assumed to be going on. But would rather too much bypass instead of not enough and blow up cylinder 4. I do not do much driving in the early spring and late fall, so as I...

Re: Any electronic experts out there

Ryan, Have you tried running dedicated grounds? Have heard that sometimes that strobing is caused in led lights because they require a good solid ground due to their low current draw.
