Re: Pronunciations

It's also a regional thing.Where I am there is no R in,corn,car,wiper,etc.A lot of times there is an R in the word wash though.A couple of years ago we were at a Christmas party(no R) at the salvage...

Re: New York State Department of Motor Vehicles

Ronn,It sounds like you are thinking of a VIN inspection,or verification.These guys are talking about the yearly safety inspection done after you get it registered.

Re: Spindle locking bolt

While the hole is not supposed to be tapered,I think a few are.Age and abuse.The nut is actually the spindle stop,when you turn the wheels around to full warp the back of the spindle should hit...

Re: Long distance buying
