    Re: BJ8 Fuel Pump

    Correct.

    If fuel is going into the carbs, but the pump isn't shutting off, is fuel coming out somewhere? Carb overflow?

    Re: Door hinge repair

    Re: Honda spark plugs

    I would look for a used Accord before I would look for a Chevy Volt. My wife insists that her 2009 will be her last car.

    Re: BJ-8 SU Fuel Pump Replacement

    Yes, much easier to do it from the top by removing the rear seat pan. You will have to remove the tire and put jackstands under the axle to get off the seat pan from below on a BJ8.

    When you said the app name was "PhotoPills" I thought one took a photo of the pills you're supposed to take at bedtime to make sure you got them all.

    Re: One of Life's Tough Decisions.....

    In California, if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it. Premium is running $4.00/gal, +/- $0.25.

    That's part of that new-fangled stuff. I used to write a report by hand, give it to the department secretary to type on a typewriter. She would say to me and my boss "You get one chance to comment...

    Same here. The wire sizes shown in charts assume the wire is in continuous operation, such as running a motor. Operating for short intervals allows smaller wires. For example, until engineers...

    Re: Brake hoses

    I have the Goodridge, no complaints. I originally got the Denis Welch hoses when I did the disc brake conversion in 2000. They were fine until one kinked earlier this year.

    Re: Under boot and under bonnet paint?

    Glossy. It was the same paint as the exterior, they didn't use (or have) clearcoat in those days.

    Re: PCV and oil leaks

    One can make an inexpensive vacuum/pressure gauge that measures in inches of water with a loop of clear vinyl tubing with water in it. If you want to see it easier, add a drop or two of food coloring.

    Re: Water Pump Leak

    Not having the grease fitting means the bearings are sealed. The bearings should be protected from coolant by the seal. If there is a drain between the bearings, and the bearings are not sealed, dirt...

    I read that, to make the Mighty Vac work, you need to put some rubber grease on the outside of the bleed screw to seal the threads and not draw too much vacuum. I discovered last week that the grease...

    From that website, it seems that that branch of NGK only supplies Indian automakers.
