    Water wetter

    Good point on the flush. He just keeps distilled (I think distilled) water in the truck for top ups. He hasn't needed to yet. He did say when he flushed his green coolant, it was clean, no sludge etc. Maybe the coolant itself, although it looked good, was just past its best? I may just flush...

    Water wetter

    Has anyone experienced replacing coolant with water wetter? My 96 33" with Toyota red, with clutch fan mod seems to be running a little warmer than last year, up to 196 Deg (max) with AC in Florida sun. My buddy flushed his Landrover D1, and replaced with water/water wetter and saw a 10 degree...

    Unable to pump at Gas station

    Great feedback. Sounds like I may be on the right track. Lp2k - yes I tried everything, these particular pumps were not playing at all. Different pressures, angles, in deep, on filler circumference. Gentle squeezing is how i managed to get the less sensitive second gas station pump to work...

    compressor Idle pulley bearing

    Thanks all. There is a cover on the bearing, and I am not sure if the bearings are knock-offs - bought from Amazon. I decided to buy an new OEM pulley. When mine is tight, but not tight on the belts, I can feel some play, not sure if it is normal or not. Also found an engine lower cover so...

    compressor Idle pulley bearing

    Its a good point. Its tough to tell, it 'looks' ok, seems to run true and rubber looks fine from a visual. Is there any better way to tell it needs replacing?

    compressor Idle pulley bearing

    I'm in Florida so most of my offroading is swamp wet/dry sand and water in general. I am finding that my compressor idle pulley bearing doesn't last long before getting noisy, i would guess I need to change it every 800 miles. I replace with :- NACHI 4 Pack 6301-2NSE9 Bearing 6301-2NSE Seals...

    Brake caliper pin slide thread

    hello all. Does anyone know the thread size for the pin slide on the rear calipers. Need to clean up the female side, looks like m14, but I don't have a tap or fastener to check it. TIA
