Hi All, When the discussion was going on a month or so ago about possible causes of the indicator light flickering and staying on under load (electrical), I professed a theory that may the problem co

When we painted our tri**h a lot of years ago, we used lacquer followed by clear coat, and it came out great. But as has been said, I don't think you can even get lacquer any more, at least not acco

I took the easy ( but more expensive route). Go down to your local boat supply house and look for a gear lube pump. Its a plastic pump that screws into the top of the 90W gear lube jug for pumping t

The catalytic converter runs hot because the mixture is rich not lean just the opposite of what you think of in cylinder temps and such..). The reason is the converter is there to burn the excess hy

This is pure speculation.... It sounds like something is spinning on after the engine stops turning for a couple of seconds. It also sounds like it's something that isn't supposed to turn. Do you ha

Ed et al, I've got to agree on this one. I went out and bought a new compression gauge because I didn't believe the readings I was getting off of my old one on an engine I bought last summer. Sure en

That's the trouble with the 56K modems, they ( like any other modem) depend on line condition. Depending on the local phone network you're on and the distance to from your house to the switch, 28K m

Just one more plug to add to this. Does the reduced RPM save wear and tear on the engine? Probably. Is it measurable? Probably not in any significant manner at normal driving speeds, but at 85 - 100

10 BTDC is more advanced than 5 BTDC ( spark occurring 10 in advance of the piston reaching TDC). If your dwell angle and timing remain pretty steady, you probably don't have much distributor shaft

Unless you've changed the coil to a high voltage/energy unit, I'd leave the plug gap alone. The EI will give you a much more stable advance and compensate for distributor wear etc., but won't do any

The real way to check it is with a capacitance meter, which will usually tell you the capacitance at 1 K hertz, and maybe at a higher frequency. You can do a check with an ohmmeter to tell if its to
