My experience has been that those fatigue cracks tend to spider web and the
metal in that area is fatigued and will...

Re: Parasitic Drain?

I have to disagree with " a well functioning unit will have no draw at all."
A brand new alternator will have a minimal draw.

Diodes do not resist backflow 100% nor do they conduct current...

A kingpin reamer is a precision reamer that is long enough to go through both bushings at the same time. They are kind of expensive but nice to...

Re: KR Wilson spring spreader continued, sort of

Re: front brakes

The ID of new drums is 11"". New cast iron brake drums should be turned no less than .090"" or to a diameter of 10.910""

I wonder who is writing the catalog for Snyders?

Re: 6V boost from 12

If the bumpers touch both car frames become one frame, the 6 volt is positive ground and the 12 volt is negative ground and you've grounded them to the same frame. So in reality you've hooked a...
