    I don't think he's talking about the VIN tag itself, just the general area.

    The factory sometimes put a dimple where a hole might be drilled later. In this area, it might be for fasteners for a...

    I was under the perhaps misguided (or perhaps not) impression that a concrete block and a cinder block are the same thing. I found that for the most part they are not. Cinder blocks are made from...

    What you see here is an example. Basically it is temporarily stabilizing/supporting a large or heavy object after you lift it or prepare to move it.

    If it is a pipe thread, then yes you used the correct sealant. Have you tried tightening it more?

    Repro bumpers may not be as bad as you think. And they may be a good economic choice compared to quality originals.

    The problem with CPP500 boxes leaking at the high pressure fitting is that they use a brass cone seat that's too thin. Because of that, the threads bottom out before the tube or fitting fully seats...

    How is a relay going to save "wear and tear" on the motor? I don't get that.

    I do understand that if there's enough voltage drop and enough mechanical friction, the motor will stall.

    The other half has "1105 A" stamped in it where you found...

    Opinions will vary, but my position on power steering is that unless you have an aftermarket frame that was designed/engineered from the ground up for R&P, or front frame clip from a car that had R&P...

    That bolt appears to be bent! I wouldn't drive the car much if at all until that was fixed.

    I agree with Tabasco, if that bolt goes all the way through the steering box input shaft, drilling that hole makes the shaft very weak. Not only that, there's not much way of converting that box to...

    On your steering column connection, can you post a photo or say in more detail what's scary? In general, you want a spline or double D joint. If you don't have that or if it's a double D with no...

    No. When you first turn the key on, the pump is on and "primes" for a couple of seconds. It then shuts off. It turns on again when an rpm signal is detected from the ignition sensors. If the...

    That kind of switch is of no or little value for an EFI setup since the ecu is going to shut off the pump as soon as the engine isn't running, and an EFI engine won't run long with no fuel pressure. ...

    The clip should be all that was holding it. So now it's corrosion or crud. Try tapping with a hammer, or a hammer and chisel.

    You have to shut down the security system in the ecu too. If you do that, you won't need any tricks with the ignition switch. You must buy tuning software or take the car (or ecu) to a tuner who...
