Re: FJ - Is this tire repairable ?

I find it odd that a 14 ply tire does not resist a puncture no better than that.That would be part of the reason I would pick those. But speaking of trailer tires,if these were mine,they would not hold up the truck,but look at what these little 12 inchers take! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-wKT2...

Re: Can we Have a Dedicated "Period Photo" Section of Forum?

I have to admit,i am already seeing a need for some further division.Perhaps a Tech section, a photo section and on.The threads do not change color when read and at the moment I am going thru about 150 post to see which to read and pass over.
Not a complaint ,just a observation.

Ron,what is the cost per coil? A friend that collects hit and miss engines may want to get 1 or 2 rebuilt later into the spring.
