    2G Need help diagnosing noise

    IMO figure out your clutch issues first. I bet they are related.

    2G Need help diagnosing noise

    Left or right side? Hard to tell in the vid but seems to be louder on the right. Does the noise change when you press the clutch and engage into gear?

    1G Engine bay wiring repair questions

    I was going to buy a couple rolls of SXL 18 AWG wire but I decided to see what wire scraps we had at work. I work for an OEM aircraft manufacture. I happened to walk in the wire shop right after the Laselec machine messed up a whole batch of 18 AWG. So I snagged that bundle of unshielded...

    1G Machinist questions

    I'll be taking my head/block/crank to the shop tomorrow. HiPro Engines weren't taking any additional jobs for another month so I looked around and found another fairly local shop to Denver that seem to specialize in Japanese and American platforms. They specifically list the 4g63 DSM/EVO on...

    If it were a more valuable bike, yes I believe it would. I want to say the deductible is $500 and the bike is only $700. Fortunately we're not talking about a pair of $6k bikes like @danl lost.

    Oof. That's horrible. I couldn't imagine how scary that would be.My son is now using a 90's (maybe even 80's) beater. He needs an XL size, and this one is either XS or S. Queue the Benny Hill theme song. There are bike racks on the bus but he splits between public bus, light rail, and a school...

    You mean pot? Pfffft...not really any different than before legalization except it's much safer and regulated now and the money isn't being funneled back to the crooks. Some people are phobs about it and that will never change. I do agree that hardcore drugs are a problem that heavily...

    I just need to vent for a moment. TL;DR at the bottom. This has nothing to do with cars, but rather mountain bikes. For the record, I live in a fairly low crime area.My son has an excellent opportunity to attend a technical school to fulfil his last two years of high school and graduate with...

    2G Strange boost issues

    Did you boost leak test your wastegate actuator? Also have you tried new spark plugs and wires?

    1G replacing oil pump straight gears with helical

    My undercarriage is completely rust free! ROFL BTW, I like your old Dodge. I've got a '77 D150, but I kind of like the older body style like yours.

    2G How to Remove Unorthodox Racing 1-Piece Water Pump Pulley?

    I wouldn't worry about it, it all has to be realigned anyway when you put the new belt on.

    2G How to Remove Unorthodox Racing 1-Piece Water Pump Pulley?

    I'd be worried about denting or crushing the oil pan. I'm also guessing you still have all the driveline parts attached, which adds additional weight to the engine if you take that right mount off.Why not just take all the timing components off - tensioner/arm, pullies, belt etc. and then see...

    1G replacing oil pump straight gears with helical

    Never had any oil pressure issues and I know this pump had at least 200k on it. Probably was more likely the factory pump, so 270k. I will not be reusing it. Not worth the risk.Makes sense that RTV would not be ideal inside the pump. I get it. Hence why I'm having this discussion now and not...

    1G replacing oil pump straight gears with helical

    The amount of oil was negligible, but grimy like it had been leaking slightly. I wouldn't expect a metal-on-metal mating surface to be oil tight. Usually those spots call for RTV.
