  1. A worn out fan maybe drawing more amps than when its new. Put a amp clamp on it to measure amperage and make sure its drawing the amps its spec for. Otherwise melting connectors is usually high resistance connection. Aka bad connection. Think if it like a 100w light bulb in the circuit generating heat.
  2. I straightened my rim. Douglas spindle mount star. Its not perfect but it works. Use a hard wood and a 5lb sledge. wood will keep from damaging the aluminum. The wood may leave marks that will have to be buffed out.
  3. To non car people with a broke car in there side yard. The old mexican guy is a god send. Everyone makes money and the non car people don't have to deal with tow/fix/staring at it for the next 20-year, etc.
  4. Nice work. We do the opposite, when headed to San Diego, we fill up in Yuma in the wifes Explorer. And if we don't drive too much there can make it back to Yuma and fill up without having to fill up in CA. The first time we took the Explorer to CA, coming back got caught in accident traffic at Gordon's, fuel light came on. Had to get 2 gallons at the last CA gas station before AZ. Last week took the company cruze to Yuma. doing 75mph averaged 30mpg. In town that thing gets 32-33mpg. And I've noticed the same with my Duramax. 55mph is the best for extending fuel mileage
  5. The lid screws on. The gasket is rubber with a bulb, like a brake master cylinder. Mines at least five years old. The gasket is still soft and pliable.
  6. Use a standard wide band. The o2 doesn't know what fuel your are burning, but it is calibrated to gasoline. It's measuring lambda, and outputs volts. See the table below, I built it because the other tables online only had E85 and E100, nothing inbetween. Its based on the constants are 1.0 volts is stoich, stoich for 100% ethanol is 9.0 AFR, stoich for gas is 14.7 AFR. When the O2 measures 2.5 volts on gas, the gauge will say AFR is 14.7. Switch fuel to E85, the O2 reading of 2.5 volts, the gauge will say 14.7 AFR, in the engine it will be 9.9 AFR. Constants Gas 14.7 AFR Ethanol 9.0 AFR 10% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 85% 90% Volts Lambda Gas E10 E40 E50 E60 E70 E80 E85 E90 E100 0.00 0.50 7.4 7.1 6.2 5.9 5.6 5.4 5.1 4.9 4.8 4.5 0.25 0.55 8.1 7.8 6.8 6.5 6.2 5.9 5.6 5.4 5.3 5.0 0.50 0.60 8.8 8.5 7.5 7.1 6.8 6.4 6.1 5.9 5.7 5.4 0.75 0.65 9.6 9.2 8.1 7.7 7.3 7.0 6.6 6.4 6.2 5.9 1.00 0.70 10.3 9.9 8.7 8.3 7.9 7.5 7.1 6.9 6.7 6.3 1.25 0.75 11.0 10.6 9.3 8.9 8.5 8.0 7.6 7.4 7.2 6.8 1.50 0.80 11.8 11.3 9.9 9.5 9.0 8.6 8.1 7.9 7.7 7.2 1.75 0.85 12.5 12.0 10.6 10.1 9.6 9.1 8.6 8.4 8.1 7.7 2.00 0.90 13.3 12.7 11.2 10.7 10.2 9.6 9.1 8.9 8.6 8.1 2.25 0.95 14.0 13.4 11.8 11.3 10.7 10.2 9.6 9.4 9.1 8.6 2.50 1.00 14.7 14.1 12.4 11.9 11.3 10.7 10.1 9.9 9.6 9.0 2.75 1.05 15.5 14.8 13.0 12.4 11.8 11.2 10.6 10.3 10.0 9.5 3.00 1.10 16.2 15.5 13.7 13.0 12.4 11.8 11.2 10.8 10.5 9.9 3.25 1.15 16.9 16.2 14.3 13.6 13.0 12.3 11.7 11.3 11.0 10.4 3.50 1.20 17.7 17.0 14.9 14.2 13.5 12.9 12.2 11.8 11.5 10.8 3.75 1.25 18.4 17.7 15.5 14.8 14.1 13.4 12.7 12.3 12.0 11.3 4.00 1.30 19.2 18.4 16.1 15.4 14.7 13.9 13.2 12.8 12.4 11.7 4.25 1.35 19.9 19.1 16.8 16.0 15.2 14.5 13.7 13.3 12.9 12.2 4.50 1.40 20.6 19.8 17.4 16.6 15.8 15.0 14.2 13.8 13.4 12.6 4.75 1.45 21.4 20.5 18.0 17.2 16.4 15.5 14.7 14.3 13.9 13.1 5.00 1.50 22.1 21.2 18.6 17.8 16.9 16.1 15.2 14.8 14.4 13.5
  7. I bought a 50ml graduated cylinder from Amazon for $5 or $10. The below image is where I got the idea but it uses 100ml and has a special formula that I think is calibrated to 100ml. I was thinking of investing in a smaller tester, but if they are not holding up then I'll continue to use this method. Did some searching on line and found a simplified version. Don't know if its accurate, ie the pump maybe 52% where I'm getting 54%. Graduated cylinder test directions Gas first then water to total line. Subtract to get water vol. there’s mixing right away that will absorb water, thus shrinkage in volume if actual water volume is added to gas that makes Calculation in percent lower. Formula (Seperation line - water)/gas Water 24 ml Gas 25ml Separation line 37.5ml Total 45 (Sep line - water)/gas (37.5-24)/25=54%
  8. Headway 38120 HP cells are rated at 8AH and 200A. A 4 pack of these will easily start a vehicle. And using the 300 amp BMS cut off above its viable to put in a buggy. and run off the alternator. In theory the alternator voltage will only be able to get the battery to 80% range, which is fine for lion for car starting. Few questions I can't find answers for. 1. Can alternator get high enough voltage to get BMS to cut off LifePo4 battery. I think, in normal operation, the vehicle has so much other electrical loads, that the alternator voltage won't get close to the 15 volt cut off. 2. At that point will alternator charge current have no where to go and will take out diodes.
  9. We buy a lot with Prime. Car parts are usually cheaper, but you need to able to wait for shipping. Things like RTV and loctite, amazon is way better prices and has every little variation. Unlike the autostore may only carry blue loctite. Oil, use walmart, amazon can't compete There's an ap for Google Chrome called "the camelizer" it tracks prices, so you can see the past pricing and make a decision if your getting a deal or not. Amazon changes pricing all the time randomly to suck you in. another ap is "Unicorn Smasher" this app tells you the number of units sold. Lets you verify if something is listed as #1 best seller, or how many reviews versus sales. We'll keep using prime its way to convenient not to.
  10. Does Torque Pro read oil pressure and balance rates for a Duramax LLY? My current super chips programmer/code reader doesn't do that.
  11. put a brass tee in its place, paint it black.
  12. My wife put the garage door down on the explorer while backing out, smh. The antenna broke at the base of the threads. Was too bad drilling the broken piece and an easy out got it out. About 20 minutes including the time to research the innerwebs to see if the anntenna base was male or female.
  13. In the 90's I was a line man for Golden State Flying Club at Gillispe Field in El Cajon. They had a Jet A truck with a hand nozzle most used to fill up Life Flight helicopters after they got back from calls. And I filled Dave McDowell's heater a few times with Jet A
  14. I don't carry a jack. But if I did it would be a hi-lift. I use a lifted floor jack at camp to change tires. The hi-lift give you more options to get the car high up in the air. The long travel cars you have to lift about 2-3 feet to get the suspension extended and then the tires out of the hole. A floor jack doesn't have that kind of travel. Plus the hi lift jack you can move the car sides ways, jack it up, the push the car off the jack. I mostly use the starter bumping. The key to starter bump is not getting the car dug deep. As soon as the car stops moving put the clutch in. Get the kids and you out of the car and walk it out in reverse from the outside the car.
