Re: Mr Heater propane heater in enclosed space?

i tried warming up the regulator (did not work)
did not even think about warming up the tank (bottle)
next trip i will be keeping the bottles warm

supposedly the "Little Buddy" is not supposed to create carbon monoxide
it would deplete the oxygen
i still would not trust it

be careful what you wish for. if you do manage to move the fork it may move too far and the detents inside the hub will pop up and it will be difficult to get them back in place. look at the three shift shafts there is a set of three notches on each shaft they are aft of the first/second gear fork t...

Re: Axle play at Front differential & bearing whine #%&*
