  1. After 2 more 30 minutes second treatments, the bolt continues to appear undisturbed, but there is some significant heat coming off it. Of course, I neglected to drag out my digital thermometer. Next, time, I assure you. A little tug with a 24 inch breaker bar and the bolt readily loosened. The exact same process worked for the second bolt. After a half turn, I was able to spin these guys out with my 3/8ths electric ratchet. And would you look at that...over 200k miles and these little wretches still have the factory threadlocker on them. Those caliper mounts weren't coming off without a fight. A brief application of T30 bit on the rotor and it's FREE, FREE from its prison of the last 11 years. Does anyone know how much a Silverado 1500 brake rotor weighs? Steel toed shoes are a good thing. That I'm not wearing. After an hour break to ice my foot and cool off, and then see if my toe bent in the right direction, the whole thing went back together pretty readily. And my shiny new brake rotor a couple days later when I remembered to take a picture. The grinding went away, so I don't have to go to the junkyard looking for backordered parts. I went anyway, but that's another story. So, bottom line. I got a new 1000 watt induction heater to try out. Never used one before. I don't know how hot it got, and there's no way to prove that using it is what allowed me to remove the bolts. Scientifically, I've made no progress. And from a user perspective, there was a noise, I spent several hundred dollars, now there is not a noise and I got my brake fluid back. I walked with a limp anyway, so there really wasn't a change there.

  2. I bet Joe has an engine laying around that we could test this on. I see a drinking game at NeXXt.

  6. Hi The problem with voltage was in the connectors. Some were seized. Cleaned them and voltage is ok now. I have ordered the fuel pressure regulator. Thx I don't have O2 sensor, while I installed power commander with O2 sensor eliminator.

  7. Thanks, ironmike. I'm asking $6,000k but would take OBO from site members. I've done a pretty miserable job of selling the bike locally. Every time I get ready to list the bike on CycleTrader, I start having second thoughts about selling and put it off. It's WAY more fun to buy cool bikes than it is to sell them.

  9. It was a air lock. I bleeded the brakes again. Looks like 3 years ago I have forgotten about one nipple. Now everything works fine! Thx a lot for advices.

  10. Not a type, dumb fingers. Edited and thanks for the proofread. The unit will supposedly kick out on overheat, and directions (yes, I did read them) suggest a maximum of 120 second therapy sessions before allowing the unit to cool down. Same here, but the deciding factor to go big in this case was the rapidly deteriorating integrity of the bolt's drive face after multiple failed attempts to reef it off. Incidental factors included accessability, lost time, and it was too physically hot to work outside for more than 15 minutes at a time.

  11. The gas runs downhill the tubing to the lowest cylinder. Cylinder 1 is toward the right if the picture. I don't THINK the starter has enough juice to bend a rod.

  12. After a while you can almost tell when to try to break it loose or just cut it off just my looking. I had to cut a bottom shock bolt off my truck using a angle grinder and when it went through, the nut went flying across the garage and landed on a two folded tarps burning right through both. Almost had to laugh, almost.

  13. He said he had thoughts of turning the Courier into a gasser and ost interest. He had some other cars in those sheds. He asked if I'd like to see them. A couple of them were pretty cool. A couple of them I just didn't understand the concept he was shooting for. The yellow one was pretty neat. He had early 79's hearse he was chopping into a pickup truck. e also had a mid 1960's Buick he was welding Cadillac fenders and a 1940's Oldsmobile cab/top onto and taking width out of the front of the hood... and using the 40's hood on top of the19602 bits - I didn't get it. It was an interesting 10 minutes.

  14. I for one that would kill it off and do some plant to keep wash out under control and possibly rocks and hit it every now and the with the chemicals. MY 48in ZTR on flat ground can do and acre in 20-30min. I don’t like bill with it though after sliding down one one.

  17. I just called Apple Support and talked to Britney who sounded like someone from Alabama. She looked at a few things on her end and doesn't think there will be any issues. If it was a cellular model there might be issues but where it's wifi only and if wiped/factory reset before it gets to me all should be good. Thanks for call out all the same.

  18. Despite what others might say - it has definitely helped me lose weight. I burn calories walking... that in combination with a healthy diet definitely helps you maintain a particular weight and if you walk a lot - helps you lose weight. How do I know this for a fact - I lost weight when I started walking more than just a stroll. Yesterday I walked 8 miles. I walk 16 minute miles. I burned 780 calories. I do that 3-5 days a week. So, 2340 to 3900 calories a week. If I don't eat like a pig I will lose weight.

  19. Humid air might have more expansion than dry air, that could explain the difference between the AZ and OR experiences. If anyone knows about the temp/humidity/pressure thing I'd love to know.

  23. Honda upped the wattage in 99. Gave the R/R another wire in parallel to shunt the excess current to ground. I don't have extras so, I won't buy a bigger stator. FWIW, my 98 measured 17+ amps to ground at 5500 rpm. Only one wire.

  24. Back in the day I rode my 78 CB 750 to my brothers, 500 miles just stopping for gas. When I got there the battery was dry. When I went to come home, I filled it, jumped it with a lamp cord and rode home.

  25. Just to add fuel... This is a 6.4 that had a new from Ford engine 65k miles ago. Runs quite nicely but it has a cracked exhaust manifold so it's not too expensive, and I'm trying to get him a little lower.

  26. 1) build a loft inside the building, on posts off to one side, and call it a shelf. I built one for the corner of my shop and put engines/transmissions/press/sandblast cabinet under it and even hung the fat kid go-cart off the bottom of it. On top is wheels/tires and all kinds of other stuff. 2) no you don't. The pitch of the roof will clear the lift and the vehicle. My front and rear walls are only 12 foot I believe and the roof slope was increased to give center height clearance for the lift. I also have the tallest and widest lift on the market in the 10k capacity range. I can lift my Astro to the roof rack and not hit anything and still walk under it. 3) FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT DO THIS. Have your concrete guy get with the building guy and pour the foundation CORRECTLY. YOU NEED FOOTERS NOT A FLAT SLAB. 4) Please video the fire if you run a building 500 ft away from a power pole on AWG4 aluminum pulling 220 to run a shop with a lift, compressor, and lights. I've never seen earth turn directly to liquid hot magma. You are aware distance is your enemy, right? It's going to take larger wire or you are seriously underestimating your peak power consumption (or not planning for future usage such as welding, air conditioning, etc.) Buy once, cry once.
