Do you have the electronics skills to design a good home made smoke machine? by Arthur Wood
All we need to find vacuum leaks in a complex engine is a smoke machine that works. All it needs to do is... a. Emit lots of smoke that won't clog up an engine when it condenses, and, b. Constantly push that smoke at a couple of psi for about a half hour. We made a smoke machine to work on a...

I was told that there is a manual auto repair shops look up to find the number of shop hours they charge for a job. To be fair, I'm told they all charge that many hours even if it doesn't take that many hours. For example if three jobs are done, and even if they associate with each other, they...

Kumho tires by [email protected]
I bought new about eight years ago for my 1983 Dodge B250 van. I had the van in storage for almost two years. Last week when I drove the van I heard a humming noise. I only drove the van about 2,240 miles since I had the new tires. Would the age of the tires cause the humming noise?

Solved, valve stem seal by Ivan Vegvary[_2_]
My cylinder head must have been remanufactured with fatter valve guides. The guides are 0.01 fatter than the inside diameter of the seals. Having made the measurements the wonderful techs at Fel-pro specified a set that will be a correct fit on the stem but 0.005 too large on the guide. A stop of...

2.5 ton jack and a 6,900 lb truck by Michael[_23_]
I know that a 2.5 ton jack does not actually equal 6900 lbs, but since it's raising only one end, I'm wondering if it is safe to use it for a vehicle this size. Thanks Mike
