    Visual inspection PRICELESS!!!

    Nice going. I seems from what I hear that the new young techs want to visualize a scanner or laptop instead of old fashioned eyeballing.

    What do you use to clean jets and emulsion tubes on small engine carburetors ?

    The industry has always said to never use any "probe" of any kind. Having said that I am sure we have all CAREFULLY used something at some time. Obviously any damage done to the opening changes the flow amount. So, it is best to soak it overnight or longer in a carb cleaning solution. Then...

    2012 Lincoln Navigator - 6r80 - 235k miles - possible trans slip

    Chris: I can not tell you HOW to temporarily disengage TCC on your car. Hopefully someone can jump in and tell you. That would be a nice no cost test to get you started.

    2012 Lincoln Navigator - 6r80 - 235k miles - possible trans slip

    Alcan's info should be considered for sure. I had one bad spark-plug trick me and my friends at their trans shop think the TCC was bad when it was only a plug misfiring when under more load when the TCC locked up. So, a test would be to disable the TCC as I stated above.

    2012 Lincoln Navigator - 6r80 - 235k miles - possible trans slip

    Chris: That might be the torque converter clutch "hunting"(off and on) under those slightly different conditions. . I am not familiar with your vehicle, but on my car that hunting annoyed me enough to install an on-off switch on the TCC so I could disengage the TCC lockup when driving under...

    Headlight lens restorer

    I start with rubbing compound after the sanding and end up with finer finishing- polishing material. In other words, it is the same process as polishing out a fine paint job. Start heavy and end up fine, depending on how bad the paint or lens is.

    Headlight lens restorer

    I have done what grcauto does many times and it works fine. Maybe I went 500 - 1000 - 2000, and then rubbng compound and polish, but you get the idea.

    Possible Transmission Issue- Chevy Equinox 2015

    Neither you or your mechanic have checked the transmission fluid yet? Seems that step should have been done way prior to writing here at this site.

    Propane for A/C

    I feel your pain. Over 4 years ago I installed a new compressor on my "89 Buick and you assisted me in vac and fill. Time flies. I had trouble and all kinds of conflicts on any kind of online A/C specs. I got very frustrated on which oil to use also. I do not recall why I finally used...

    Very low compression on 40 year old 2 cycle outboard.

    grcauto: Good call. I put 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in the combustion chamber last night and started it this morning. Bill: Since it is running, I will NOT be seeing you this afternoon. That Alcohol is the gal. you gave me. I will miss seeing you. Maybe I can break something else.:fixed:

    Very low compression on 40 year old 2 cycle outboard.

    Nick: Yes, no needle valve and the one brass jet was very plugged up took 2 days of carb cleaner and lots of air air to blow it out. Bill: I will be up this afternoon around 2 to 2:30.

    Very low compression on 40 year old 2 cycle outboard.

    Bill: I do not really need it, but if you want to play with it I wiil get it to you. It would be good to see you. Anytime you are available, I certainly have nothing interesting going on. Let me know.
