    Re: It doesn't pay to cheat

    I keep hearing about the celebrities who bribed, what about the people who falsified records or accepted bribes to get them in. I would think those people should get harsher sentences and were...

    Re: Vinyl making a comeback?

    I have a couple hundred, but no turntable. I really like 70-80s stereo equipment, and wish I would have bought a nice set 15 years ago when I first started considering it and it was give away stuff...

    Re: Some songs

    In the early 70s we had a wealth of talent with Carly Simon, Carole King, and Joni Mitchell. All sort of sort of filling the same niche of singing realistic songs about love and life on those...

    Re: RIP CaptainAl Haynes

    The tail jet exploded and took out all the hydraulics controlling rudder, flaps, etc. This was not supposed to be able to happen because there were redundant systems for the controls. So no...

    Re: Honda spark plugs

    I did the plugs on my wife's Fit a few months back, not quite at 100,000 miles yet, but over ten years old. Not a huge job, but you had to take the stupid plastic engine cover off. I won the plugs...

    TR2/3/3A Re: Hints on sealing the sump gasket.

    TR6 Re: TR6 Door Glass

    It is kind of a distant memory, but I know my windows didn't line up well with the windshield when I did my TR250. I recall adjusting the windshield to get the angle and gap right.

    Re: 1275 EN40 Crank
