If two people come to an agreement on a trade, monetary or otherwise, why does that concern anyone else? Certainly doesn't concern me.

Re: Two Electrical Questions

Most LED bulbs are polarity sensitive. Use a voltmeter, much more valuable info in a voltage reading than just a "it lights".

Re: Toe-in

First make sure your wheels run true, then use a stick as described above or just a tape measure if you're careful.

Re: Evapo-rust gel

As Tom W stated, sandblaster will do great things for that project. Keep air pressure low and keep moving. The roughened surface will hold the primer sealer really well too.

Re: Fuel line

Not necessary, brass is soft and will form to the fitting. If its been removed and overtightened too many times, just replace rather than try to fix it up with a bandaid.

Re: Broken Manifold Bolt

First I'd use a fine point acetylene torch and heat the stud red, then cool with wet rag. Do this a few times then drill out. Use a very small drill bit first, run drill slowly and make sure its...

Re: Oil change after head gasket job?

Changing cold just means waiting longer for it to drain.

Re: Flooded Out

If its running, and raining hard, likely you'll pull more in through the radiator fins than will leak through the hinge.

Re: best way to dry gas tank that is in car

Re: How to routinely clean engine?

Pressure wash it. Don't get too close. Put plastic over dist first. Start the car and get it fairly warm first. I've never had a problem, I imagine some will swallow their false teeth over it but...

Re: purple ice by royal purple

If adding these do not give you the cooling performance you need, best to look into perhaps an issue with your system.

I'd say if these are needed, you already have an issue with your system....

Re: Spark-Lever Posistion

It is such a simple thing to adjust the spark as needed. A little know-how and some common sense is all that's needed. I'd say if someone can't figure it out, they should stick with a Toyota.
