  1. I've recently started using Firefox due to so many sites not working correctly with IE11. When I log on here with just http:\\, Firefox says this site is not secure, while IE11 doesn't care. When I try to log on here with https:\\, Firefox won't let me proceed at all, and IE11 says this site is not secure. Searching shows similar problems in 2017, but nothing more recent. Is this site not secure? Using the Firefox Advanced button leads me to
  2. Is the crankcase breather hose assembly still connected up properly and not crimped?
  3. Six years ago when my grandson, who lives with us, started seriously thinking about real cars instead of video games. We pulled the covers off so he could see what old iron looked and felt like. We put some air in the circa 1982 model tires. That was probably the last time it was completely uncovered. It is 50 years old now.
  4. The radiator shop I used growing up would unsolder the tanks and use flat rods to rod the radiator tubes out. I bought a '70 428 Mach I new that always ran hot. When stopped at a light or a train crossing, the dual vacuum advance/retard would run the idle up to 2000 RPM. Finally after a summer run from Louisiana back to the Texas Panhandle, it started blowing steam out of the top tank seam. I took it to Alvin's Radiator to have it repaired, and he said he found 1/3 of the tubes plugged with some strange stuff he had never seen before. He thought the stuff had probably been in there from day one. After he rodded the radiator and reassembled it, that car never overheated again. Running that hot did, however, cause the nylon teeth covering on the timing gears to eventually disintegrate. Luckily the engine wouldn't run, so it didn't plug up the oil pump intake.
  5. There was a factory recall on a possible seal leak on the LBS proportioning control valve. If fluid could get out, air might get in. The following are the results of a recall search for recalls on the NHTSA Office of Defects Investigation web site. Make / Models : Model/Build Years: HONDA / CBR1100XX 2002-2003 HONDA / ST1300 2003-2004 HONDA / ST1300A 2003-2004 HONDA / VFR800 2002-2004 HONDA / VFR800A 2003-2004 Manufacturer : AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO. NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number : 05V010000 Recall Date : JAN 18, 2005 Component: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC Potential Number Of Units Affected : 36046 Summary: CERTAIN MOTORCYCLES EQUIPPED WITH COMBINED-BRAKE SYSTEMS HAVE A PROPORTIONING CONTROL VALVE (PCV) THAT MECHANICALLY PROPORTIONS BRAKE FORCE WHEN THE REAR BRAKE IS APPLIED. A SEAL IN SOME PCVS IS IMPROPERLY SHAPED, AND BRAKE FLUID LEAKAGE MAY OCCUR. Consequence: IF THE MOTORCYCLE CONTINUES TO BE USED AFTER A LEAK OCCURS, THE REAR BRAKE WOULD EVENTUALLY BECOME INOPERATIVE. A LOSS OF REAR BRAKE FORCE COULD INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH. Remedy: DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE REAR BRAKE FORLEAKAGE. IF LEAKAGE IS CONFIRMED, THE DEALER WILL REPLACE THE PCV. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON FEBRUARY 3, 2005. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT HONDA AT 866-784-1870. Notes: HONDA RECALL NO. P65. CUSTOMERS CAN ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION’S AUTO SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).
  6. I'll throw this out here for the experts to shoot holes in: I think SPAL says use a 15 amp fuse at 13 volts for that VA22-AP11/C-50A * 6.5"S/12V fan, so two fans in parallel, two 15 amp circuits. Your main fuse is a 30 amp and the alternator is 460 watts output, which at 13 volts would be a tad over 35 amps total. That sounds like a pretty big fan load unless the fans pull a lot less than the 15 amps.
  7. Why couldn't a LEO submit a DNA sample from a crime to any or all of the services using a phony name to get a list of relatives as a place to start looking for a suspect?
  8. You might plug it to move it around until you replace it. It looks pretty well squared off. What is the DOT date on the tire? Riding solo, I rounded a bend into a box of cabinet staples scattered across the road. The rear tire caught several, but went down slowly enough to get to a spot to insert multiple plugs. The handling deteriorated a lot as the tire went down. Considering the riding pillion you're planning for the GT, I wouldn't risk it unless I had to.
  9. It kind of looks like the bulb in the lower chamber might be the one connected to the low beam wiring instead of the correct bulb in the upper chamber. It would take a lot of adjustment to get the low beam down far enough. Maybe the bulb is not completely seated in the housing socket.
  10. cbrman97 may be new to this board, but he has owned a Bird longer than most if not all. It's not necessary to pile miles on a Bird or farkle it to appreciate it, just admiring it from any angle gives a great sense of satisfaction.

  12. Look at the date. He could only upload a few of the pictures he took into the original thread.
  13. Crowned roads in the USA and left turns generally being faster than most right turns are the most often offered explanations I've seen.
  14. Yep, still happening to me, too, but I think less frequently than earlier.
