Re: Need help from LED experts here

Don't get fleeced with the "CREE" brand designation. Every chinese knockoff POS is using the CREE name somewhere in their ad.

Re: Overheating in Death Valley, please help

I spose you will know soon enough if the problem is actually solved. My bet is on exhaust gases in your coolant.

Re: Show Us Your Tools!

Leeann do yourself a HUGE favor and throw that HF piece of **** away. The plastic bowls crack immediately. I epoxied mine and then it leaked from every other spot. I installed 6 of those in my shop. Not one worked a few months later. Get something with a trusted reputation. Spend $150 on something d...

Re: Overheating in Death Valley, please help

I know this scenario all too well. There is no solution. Fan clutch will already be fully engaged when it needs it. I had 4 big fans blowing and my van still overheated up the slightest grade. Flat ground was fine. The load on the heads is what makes the coolant start leaking into the cylinders on m...

Re: Astro ac issues

I feel inclined to help but I read and reread several times now and I dunno where to start. I guess mainly your issue sounds electrical so no need to replace the rear coil. Everything electrical should function regardless of whether or not the refrigerant system is intact, i.e. sealed pipes and what...

Re: securing bed frame to van

A bed frame like that will be quite heavy. As shown in that link he has it tied down with some steel L brackets and most likely sheet metal screws. In a serious vehicle collision or rollover those sheet metal screws will pull right out of the floor and the frame will probably go right into your spin...

Re: securing bed frame to van

If this van's a-knockin, don't come a-rockin. Not wasting any time repopulating the planet? I would think securing the frame is gonna depend a lot on what the bed frame is made of, no? Mine was a queen sized futon bed/sofa from Ikea. From 1994. Weighs a ton, all wood. It fit just between the front s...

Re: CB radio's anyone still have one?

I don't know why anyone would think CB radio is dead. Any radio that works point to point without the need of towers or satellites is priceless. Even if those bands are reassigned in the future you can still broadcast and receive. In order for anyone to render those radios useless they would have to...

Re: Another Long Shot...

If it's the speakers in the front doors cutting in and out then the wiring harness between the door and body is probably broken (inside the rubber boot section). The jacket of the wire might look fine but have broken copper inside.

Re: 2001 Astro Van Brake bleeding problems

Did you bench bleed the master before installation? Sorry it's hard to tell from your story. Steps would be bench bleed master, install, bleed longest to shortest lines, cycle ABS unit with capable scantool, bleed lines again.

Re: sure looks like this bumper would work

That's cooooool.

True.. if you are attempting to set the steering wheel perfectly straight


Step 1 in any alignment is setting the steering wheel level. A tilted wheel is a HUGE distraction while driving.

Re: A little more noise

Or go electric and just play whatever exhaust noise you like on the radio. VW(GTI), BMW(M5), Ford(Mustang) have all added additional exhaust/engine sounds to the cabin. I did that for reals. Bolted two 5" stacks right to the friggin cabin. I'm nearly an expert on exhaust noise. http://i263.pho...

Re: toe in

I heard toes and looked for camels. Toe is tricky. It's very difficult to tell if one side is set more inward/outward than the other. One thing to watch before starting is the steering wheel, make sure its straight. It takes me a few times to nail it and I have all the mentioned tools. http://i263.p...

Re: A little more noise

What video would you be referring to Mm? I think CM's sure sounds like a mean bugger and I'd have no clue if that was a V6 or V8 from the sound in that video. The only mods to my engine are larger snorkel, larger exhaust pipe diameter, throttle body spacer, throttle plate restriction removal, mechan...
