  1. Don't forget Rob's advice. Get a compressor fan strong enough to "Suck small dogs off the street"....😁
  2. If you are looking for more power...To paraphrase a sage from Carnation Wa, that posts often, keep the M10 and ....."Turbo".
  3. HobieDave on this forum makes a bracket for a rotary compressor. Blunt also has one available on their website as well.
  4. Check this site. Lots of information. Better yet, get Rob's book: https://www.amazon.com/Just-Needs-Recharge-Mechanic-Conditioning/dp/0998950718?SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-d-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=0998950718
  5. Damn....Now what I am I going to do with that rock chip on my.....friends daily driver?
  6. It would have been a pretty large dent. I knew these birds were large, but my up close and personal encounter made me realize how large these birds can be. For the Pacific Northwest, I found this: https://www.fws.gov/pacific/eagle/all_about_eagles/injured_eagle.html Plus the US Fish and Wildlife office should be notified if the eagle is dead and they will harvest the feathers for the local Native American Tribes. It is a big no-no to try and keep the bird/feathers for yourself. i.e no personal taxidermy allowed.
  7. Driving the back roads in my 2002 near Salem Oregon this afternoon. There was a beautiful Golden Eagle eating some carrion at the roads edge. Didn't see it until it took off...right in front of my car. Missed it by an inch..or less. It struck me (after I almost struck it) Just wondering who I would call or contact if I had hit and injured or worse killed it. Fish and Wildlife? The local Sheriff? The Feds? Would I have committed a crime? (half joking)... Cheers!
  8. OH there are a few E21 lovers still out there......hoarding.....The person that sold me my 3.9 LSD initially told me he wasn't interested in selling to a 2002 owner. He changed his tune a bit when I offered him cash. (or maybe Toby is right, there may be no more E21 cars left to put one in...)
  9. Just a question. Is it a rebuilt alternator that puts out high amperage? I believe that some of the high amp rebuilt ones (like mine) that put out a ton of amps do so only at higher rpm's and may put out less amps at idle than a standard alternator, which may be related to lower voltage. Maybe a change in your alternator pulley diameter may make a difference. But just my worthless $.02. "Jim.... I'm a Doctor not an electrician!"
  10. Picture from my 75 2002. Weber 32/36 with electrical choke. I was getting wiper and turn signal fail so I took this pic before I removed and buffed and polished the fuse ends and connections-yes I disconnected the battery first.. (the cleaning fixed the problem). Then decided to check the fuse diagrams and did not find one for a 25 amp fuse on #5 and 16 amp on #12. Not sure if this was from the PO or the Bodge Brothers that worked on my "restoration". So far no fires, or electrical smells.... Should I swap in the correct fuses or am I missing something here? Thanks in advance.

  12. Red neck sound insulation. He just couldn't find another old styrofoam ice chest that Buford sat on and broke to finish the job....
  13. So Jimk Should I take my Valvoline VR1 and Mix 1/2 10W-30 and 1/2 20W-50? (tongue in cheek)...😁
  14. May need to change that recommendation. Not a lot of ZDDP for our flat tappet cams. I keep posting this link: If you are not using racing oil where you are changing the oil every race. Valvoline VR1 seems to have the numbers. http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthread.php?136304-What-oil-brands-offer-the-best-protection-***Good-read***
  15. Just bought a couple of quarts of 20w50 VR1 and my local Napa auto yesterday. Not really all that expensive, a tad over $5 a quart. (had to grab wiper blades and saw it on the shelf) I believe the zinc content is the same whether it is standard or synthetic.
