RE: trailer bearings leak - castle nut stuck (why?)

The nut will cut off the cotter pin if you put a socket to it. It will be significantly easier to deal with what's left of the cotter pin with everything out of the way.

RE: Hemi Camshaft Failure Mystery Explained

I guess the only thing to do is let er rip... just as the engineers designed it.

RE: first time towing

Don't fight the trailer. It will move around ( I call it squirm ) and if you move the steering wheel for every little motion you'll be "white knuckle" all the way. As mentioned your hitch set up is more important than anything else in determining whether you have a pleasant or hair raising experience.

RE: PSI of LT tire after upgrading from P rated tire

The P tires called for 35. When I switched to LT I still used 35. I actually aired up for towing but eventually concluded that the LTs did just fine and rode and wore well at 35.

RE: Transmission lines

The lines are sealed with O rings and kept in place with snap rings. The plastic "cap" must be in place to prevent separation. For some reason lines like to rust under the support brackets. The quality seems to vary as some like to go on forever while others not so much. Be surprised if they gave out before 150000 km.

RE: S&B electrical question

Ok then. If by some miracle the switch leg is 14-3 you can easily double up the switch , possibly even with a single device. The more likely thing is that the leg is 14-2 which means you'll need a second leg or replace it with 14-3. That should be relatively simple being a screen porch and exposed wiring.

RE: S&B electrical question

Most ceiling fans have a separate wire for the fan motor. This also means that on the fan there should be a separate pull chain control for the fan motor, which how they are intended to be operated. You will need to take the fan down and wire the fan motor directly to the power feed ( black and white on the fan ) and wire the light to the switch leg ( often a blue wire on the fan ). This will also give a longer and quieter fan life since it can only be started on high as intended.

RE: What can I use to get water out of a gas tank

We soldered with the tank full of water. A small bubble of space at the top won't let the water absorb all the heat or allow enough gasses to collect to be dangerous. The only thing special I recall doing was adding a few bottles of gas line antifreeze to absorb any residual water.

RE: Nascar Follies

Congratulations Ryan. Here we see what's really important. Another testament to the quality of NASCAR's safety program. You can bet they'll study this wreck and look for further improvements.

RE: Nascar Follies

Nascar is no longer about the racing. It's all about the crash and whoever is lucky enough to be running out front at the end gets the trophy. I enjoy it less but am inexplicably compelled to continue watching.

RE: How stupid can people be

We used to hang off the back of school buses; on our feet. It was 2-1/2 km to school and some actually made it all the way but most of the time the rail crossing knocked us off.

RE: Haunted Honda CRV

I just wish the engineers would set it up to put the windows up with the remote as well.

Snowblower Battery

Hi All, I have an older model Honda HS828 snowblower that I picked up last year. The PO had a car battery installed ( which he removed ) so I installed the battery off my motorcycle. I don't think the blower is charging correctly. I've cleaned up everything on the terminals and chassis ground connections. The battery was at 10.5 V off. What should I get across the battery terminals with the motor running full speed? I only got 11.3 V. Could that be the battery or is there a better test? Thanks for looking.

RE: Cell phone Newfoundland

Stay away from Rogers unless you're staying mainly on the Avalon. Our provider offers monthly rate for unlimited talk and text outside of Canada. Cell service is generally pretty good island wide but you will find dead areas and shadows even along the TCH.

Dissimilar? But the blow off is brass?

RE: How much water to ad to black tank when starting out.?

Fill the toilet to the top twice. About 3 or so gallons.
