Re: Shipping

OK, this is why I never use Macs. I just gave them 1 more try and they failed again terribly.

I ordered the same parts with both companies. The exact same order for parts with Snyders was $12.00...

Re: Water Temp Questions...

I agree with all of the above.

What were the symptoms before you did the rebuild? Were the temps higher lower, the same?

Re: Harmonic Balancer

When I had a generator I had more than enough room to play with the belt and easily install and remove it.

Re: pinto engine on model A

Re: Compression test and Vacuum test readings need help
