Re: Happy St Patricks Day...

Awesome bit of trivia, Trilo. Not being of Irish decent, St. Patrick's Day for me simply means I cook corned beef and cabbage. Add some pearl onions, and let everything cook in the crockpot for about 8 hours. Of course I can cook this any time of year, but being somewhat of a traditionalist, it some...

Yes your fine. It's an inline 6, right? Inline engines go forever. That's why Cummins routinely hit a million miles.

How did the compression test go? As long as you are around 10% across all cylinders you are good. Did you do a leakdown test too?

Re: The Car Thread

The only thing about that Chevy is the transmission. I think it's a 4L60E. At 146k on the clock, it is well into its service life. You can get a used one for about a grand, or rebuild what you have for 2k or so.

And whoever posted up about that rag top bug, if you don't buy it I will.

Re: Handicap Vehicle for Playa Touring: The Babe

Regarding the curb idle solenoid, one of the ways to handle dieseling (more commonly known as engine run on) is to turn the steering wheel to one side, and shut the motor off while in drive. This usually purses big enough load on the engine to overcome dieseling. Not always, but usually.

1950-60. Mostly because of the cars. There are some awesome promotional videos that GM put out during those times. It was an amazing time for GM.

Re: car pass now more expensive than airport parking

So in another poor attempt to better something, the brilliant people in the org decided that since only 27k vehicle passes were used last year (out of a total of 35k allotted), this year they are only issuing 27k passes. So not only will there be the obligatory ticket frenzy, there will also be a ve...

A buddy of mine flies rockets on Playa too. It's sometime in October, isn't it?

I've always wanted to go, but it's too much for me to drive home after the event, then turn around and drive back a few weeks later.
