    MC Pushrod Removal

    I just replace one on my car. I forgot about it being held in there. I am so old and it is a pita to climb in and lay on the floor to remove the nut and bolt holding the rod. I took the nuts off and used a crowbar to release it. Really wasn't that tough a job. Bleeding the wheel cylinders by...

    My 70 Dart

    I've had this darn car over 12 years and just want to get it running and on the road at least for now. Going to replace master brake cylinder as I always have to pump it to get any pedal, and no fluid stains on each tire. Went over this earlier in the thread so I won't go into any explanations...

    I like Ruger. I had a Mk II .22 years ago and shot the daylights out of it. Currently have a SR 1911 that I like. Was wanting a AR style and found a basic model for under $700. Opinions on Ruger?

    Why people don't buy craftsman anymore

    I bought the 20v reciprocating saw. I used it a little to hard as I ended up smoking the motor. Had for a couple years. But I think I'm partly to blame as I didnt keep a sharp blade in it.

    My 70 Dart

    Holy cow, thought I had posts since July 2018........ Any way, moved to southern Illinois, been here since August 7, 2021. On this day, 9-14-21, I was in Eldorado, Il on my way to Harrisburg, Il when I spotted what looked like a Road Runner or GTX. Ended up going back to get a better look, and...

    I plan on leaving south east WI in the next couple months. My car is going with me. It will be about 45 minutes east of Marion IL. My question is, are there any machine shops around that can do engine work? It's more rural than where I am now, so some travel is expected. Any info/comments...

    Need respirator recommendations

    8 hours max, but if you can smell the paint, or it takes more effort to breath, meaning the filters are getting plugged. The cartridges we used had the HEPA and organic solvent together. The fresh air system is a whole different animal. They use air from the compressors for breathing. It has...

    Need respirator recommendations

    From my understanding, no. VOC means volatile organic compounds, basically solvents. Urethanes talks about the resin system used. They use isocyanates to cause the paint to harden. Remember Bhopal India? Water was somehow put in a tank containing cyanates. CO2 was released and suffocated a bunch...

    Need respirator recommendations

    Sorry I didn't put more details in, but you are correct about the colors. Black is for organic solvents, purple is for filtering out fine particles. Also cartridges can last up to 8 hours in a single use. Notice I said CAN. Heavy concentrations of fumes will shorten that time.

    Need respirator recommendations

    Filters aren't cheap, and you need to keep them off the mask and in a bag when not in use. Use a good black/solvent with purple/HEPA filter. All fumes are bad, but the isocyanates are worst of all. The fresh air us the best, but not cheap. I've used both, and I've noticed with the fresh air that...

    Garage heat

    I live just a few miles north of him, and wood is not a problem. My first winter in new house with a similar garage I had stapled 3 mil plastic on walls and ceiling. I used a thermostat controlled torpedo heater and used K-1 kerosene. Supposed to burn cleaner, but a little more expensive than...
