They're cheap to do but if you don't do them like every 3000 miles, you'll soon see a decrease in the center pinion angle that will cause the control arm seals to fail. Very bad.

i was on this other forum streetjeeps.com and they kept talking about the Guzinta valve. They say you have to be careful driving on gravel because they will break off...is that true? I bought a steel cover for my Guzinta valve, i should be ok right?

Thanks in advance

I once had an ex-girlfriend call and tell me that her blinkers weren't working, so I told her to go to her local auto parts store and ask for DOT 4 blinker fluid, cause it sounded like she was low.
Needless to say, the next phone call was not that nice, she was PISSED.
I enjoyed it though ! hahahahaha

It's easier to put a dry wall screw in each side wall. Usually it cause enough of a leak that you only have to put fresh air in occasionally and that is all you need to do.

I'm desperately trying to locate luminous turn signal fluid. I need about 6 quarts for the Fairlane and the '65 F250. The turn signal pump on the truck went bad. I had to manually pump the blinkers. I've replaced it but now I need fluid. Anybody have any ideas?

Oh, also, I forgot... I have a buddy with a 65 Corvair that needs a water pump. We've looked everywhere! He's willing to pay a finders fee to the first person that finds one.

Muffler bearing do NOT have to be chrome!...I prefer mine a semi-flat black. If you buy the lifetime guaranteed pair, it'll run ya about $9999.95 but you must be sure to have just washed the putanator shaft and replaced the biflabnoid as well or there WILL be trouble!!

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease - no need to be ashamed - a disease suffered by older (40+) folks that have abused their lungs (mostly) by various means. (it can be cause by natural means) But working in dusty, or chemically pervasive areas without protection, smoking, having really bad allergies, etc, or all of the above, can cause, or exacerbate, the condition.

You have to make sure its winter air for the winter and summer air for the summer. We convinced this girl in my school to completely drain her tires and refill them. She did.

Back when I worked at the Jeep dealer, they hired a new kid to work with "Cliffy" our detail guy. Well, one day I was over in the detail bay shootin' the shit with Cliffy and this kid starts beatin' the hell out of the drivers seat of this trade in with a sawed off broom stick and wearing one of those 3M masks. Cliffy looked over then erupted into a fit of laughter the likes of which I've never seen... Turns out, Cliffy told this kid that one of his responsibilities as the new clean up guy was to beat the farts out of the seats of every used car we got in. Priceless!

What about my headlight fluid? Should I change that seasonally too, along with the blinker fluid, and tire air? Do I need to grease my header bearings?





Sooo many ??'s, so little time!

Though I am embarassed to admit I got taken in by this, I was new in the USAF many years ago and was freshly arrived at my first duty assignment when I was told to go see a certain sergeant on the other side of the base and bring back 2 gallons of prop wash and 6 yards of flight line. One 20 minute bus ride later, that sergeant gave me a sad look and said he was fresh out and sent me to another sergeant saying he might have some. I was sent all over the base, riding the bus, until I finally caught on. That's called paying your dues.
