Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Milwaukee has been pretty damn good about backwards support. I got the snap on ratchet and 3/8 battery impacts. They're ok but holy shit the lights are trash, and they don't stay on after using the tool so you gotta constantly feather the trigger for the light. Makes inflator recalls pretty annoying. 

The one tool I want in cordless is a tire inflator, I've seen some shitty playskool looking ones from whatever the HomeDepot house brand is but I don't think they would last a week of real work. That would be pretty balla for work since we're always topping up tires here and there and outside it's a pain because air hose.

Anyone got some tips on how to get the wheels on my bike cleaner? And there was dirt super hard stuck on the cars sides that I didn't really get clean so any help with that would also be cool. Maybe pressure wash?

For the car try clay bar, for the bike try a wheel specific cleaner like Hot Rims from Meguiars or something like Iron Out if it's brake dust.

Yes that.

 

And someone needs to come up with capless valvestems. We have capless fuel fillers... valve stems would be the logical next step... right?

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

They got things you thread on that do that. Called a flow through valve cap, you've never seen them?

Except you're in the middle of nothing that is Northern Indiana and you're butted up against a creek with what looks like not much elevation rise from it to the structures. Even I'd pass on that location, too likely to incur flood damage or require expensive flood plain insurance and Elkhart, while a larger town in the area, is still middle of nowhere. The surrounding larger towns are all just Walmart towns too.

 

Yea, checked the IDNR flood plain map and that house is RIGHT on the edge of the 'you're an idiot if you build it here' zone and in the flood zone, hard pass.

With a GM product, that's probably true. /s

 

But seriously, although my oil change interval is excessive, I openly admit that you can go a lot longer with modern engines/oil/filters.

i think you like changing your oil so often because you want a reason to go play in the garage on saturdays.

I mean, you're not wrong; I do kinda enjoy it. 

 

I also like the idea of regularly inspecting things under the hood and under the car, less surprises that way. I I have to justify all the money I've been dumping into tools lately haha.

i changed my axle fluid yesterday over here at the coast rather than in the valley like i normally would and it was a bitch not having my usual kit. Forgot to get brake clean so i couldnt even really hose off all the dirt or wire wheel the mating surface. i wound up applying a thin coating of RTV to both mating surfaces to make up for the fact that i couldnt get them perfectly clean. Couldn't feel the little bits of gasket that were left over with my fingernail so really its no big deal. just not the most proud job i've ever done.

Yeah I hate working on cars in unfamiliar places. I have a buddy who has a much nicer garage than I do, and he always wants me to come do my work at his place, but he has very little tools and I'm sure I'd forget to grab something and it would just end up making the project longer and more complex.
