Re: Fan question ?

Sounds like you need to make the young one replace the bushings and show them how to use an oil can under the threat of not being able to use the car again. Sounds like they get enough milage out of it. You got that right 'all right' : I been staring at many idler and tension pulleys we have in sto...

Re: Free Start

Things or anything could break or snap caused by shock more so when cold. With its low compression a free start won't hurt anything. High gear lugging not good for any engine. I have been doing this since I was a kid, take a ride engine running at its sweet spot. Stop it.> don't retard it put to idl...
