  2. Re: Distributor to Spark Plug lead wire continuity

    I tried zooming in to see which meter you are using but couldn't tell. Based on similar models, it looks like you have the knob turned to continuity (buzz) and diode check. The continuity function...

    Re: Oil leaks

    I have posted the following information before so I'll try and be succinct as possible.

    Assume the valve cover and tappet covers are somewhat warped. Look for the twists and warps and flatten...

    +1 to the comments above.

    I used to have storage space through Earthlink (my ISP). They took that away and I started using the Google site. I don't remember how I opened and set up that page. It has always...

    Re: Chain Saw Thoughts/Ideas?

    Stihl is very good. Our family has also had good experiences with Echo.

    I hate 2-cycle stuff but it has its place. For your sanity, add the oil to fuel in the right ratio and if you can find it...

    TR6 Re: TR6 Only starts when being jumped

    TR6 Re: TR6 Only starts when being jumped

    Clean and inspect the main battery cables and their terminals. Since the battery is new and you said it was charged to 12.6V, look for problems with those main cables and their connections. If...

    Re: what's this tool?

    Those are known as toggle clamps, plier clamps, or toggle pliers.

    Re: Tonight's job - sewing machines.

    It is sad to see your Viking "go to pieces". At least you have some good plans for it.

    We have two machines at the moment. A disassembled Singer treadle-type (grandmother-in-law's), and a...
