Re: Howdy y'all

BTW, on this engine, watch for oil dripping from the distributor onto the heater hose just below it. The hose will swell and leak and it is a b*tch to replace. The leak is an easy remedy, its the external O-ring. Just remove the clamp, pull the distributor straight out, it has a short shaft. Get a n...

Racing clutches are for racing engines. If your engine can make the stock clutch (in good condition) slip when fully engaged, then you need to up grade, other wise the heavy springs will just wear out your leg and the racing clutch will wear out faster, especially the puc type.

Why does someone put up their 4wd for the winter? Do they put their skis up for the winter too? Park the boat for the summer?

Re: Performance engine ideas

I wonder if you could fit a GM pushrod V-6, 2.8, 3.1 or 3.4L. They are pretty compact.

Re: If You Want To Save America And The World:

Imagine this, Hillary doesn't win anymore primaries and doesn't reach the magic number. Neither does Bernie. The DNC is contested and neither Bernie or Hillary is able to get a majority. In the end, the Dems decide to go in another direction. Hello Joe. It could happen.

Re: slightly high/low idle once warm

For an EFI vehicle, I'd look for a vacuum leak, especially around the intake manifold gasket. If it is a pre OBDII vehicle, there usually is an idle position switch (IPS) ganged to the throttle position sensor (TPS). The IPS may not be making when you take your foot off the gas. One common reason fo...

Re: Does anyone miss any of their exes?

I don't see what that has to do with vacuum, at least not the way it is connected right now. Its in the valve cover, not the intake manifold and it just has a short hose looped to itself.
