    Kenda 35x10.50/17 on fnwheels six shooters

    Put a set of the Kenda RTs on the wife's Heep. Some of the best tires I've used so far. Priced well and minimal tread wear at 15K+ miles. Glad to hear others like them too.

    Ethanol free ?

    Living at elevation I can say that my 97 HATES the, "ethanol enriched fuel". The only type of ethanol free we have locally is premium at about $4+/gal. When I drive on a warm day, from town (5800') to home (7100') the thing smells like a distillery . It's worse the higher up I go. Last year my...

    Painting Land Cruiser Rustoleum

    I painted my 72 Blazer with Rustoleum about 20 years ago using an electric sprayer. Wet sanded it first and thinned the paint down quite a bit. Sprayed several coats allowing it to tack between. I was able to get a real nice gloss by rubbing it out and waxing it after a few months of cure time...

    Charcoal Canister

    Ours has that strange smell too. I think ours is due to the wonderful amount of ethanol in our gas here. I know a good dirt bike won't hardly run on the stuff after sitting for a week or so. Same smell in it's gas tank as well.

    NWTI bumpers

    Omaha and weather warming up. That makes chills run down my spine! I was born and raised there, left in 2000. There are a lot of things I still miss about it but the weather ain't one. I noticed that the CWS starts at the end of the week. That always means storms and tornados. Good luck with...

    [off topic] fuel economy and synthetic engine oils

    We definently notice the summer/winter blend thing as well. As far as oil, find one your vehicle and wallet likes and go with it. What I've noticed over way too many years is that certain vehicles like certain oils as well as fuels better. It's just like women prefer certain wines over others...

    fuel injectors.....who reconditions them?

    Being a Montrose resident myself the elevation does tax them a bit. We put 315 tires on ours and regeared to 488s made a huge improvement. The wife keeps track of mileage in ours and in the summer it gets around 15-16mpg but when the winter grade gas comes in it drops by a couple. I love that...

    Highway Speed Shake When Braking

    One problem I had many years ago with some rotors on a new vehicle was poor metalurgy which left spots in the rotors that were harder than others. This caused a lot of pulsation which "surprise" didn't go away with turning. It took about 5k miles to show up. Once they were replaced the brakes...

    Is this my fuel pump?

    Mine was doing almost the exact same thing and was driving me crazy. It kept throwing a PO code(can't remember the number) something about being lean some of the things were O2 sensors, MAF, fuel filter, etc. Finally pulled the pump to replace the spotless sock and noticed that someone had...
