    Recommendation for small generator .

    I would highly recommend Champion power equipment! I had one of their 2000w inverters for a couple years and it was reliable, quiet and performed very well. I upgraded to their 3400 inverter when I got a camper with ac. The 3400 easily runs the ac and any other electrical needs in my camper...

    Shout out to O'Reilly!

    I have FCS quick strut assemblies on all 4 corners of my Kia Spectra. I honestly had my doubts, the car had 170k miles and needed new struts desperately! They were inexpensive through Rock auto, and it was 2020, Covid shut down, and I didn't have much cash so I rolled the dice. 2 years later...

    ATV CV boot and reboot

    Cv angle like that is typical for atv's. Many of the aftermarket boots are neoprene or another type of inexpensive rubber. The originals are typically ABS plastic and are much more durable. When you hunt for a replacement, pay attention to what material it is!

    Champ XL Oil Filter Efficiency

    The Champ XL filters appear to be very similar, if not the same, as the older Mobil1 filters when Champion Labs was making them. I'm currently running a couple of them. I can get them from my local wholesale parts supplier for about $5.99 each.

    Supertech 10,000 (white) vs 20,000 (blue) filters difference?

    I cut open a Supertech white can, and it pretty much looked to be a Fram orange can with a black nitryl adbv.

    Timberwolf 250

    I have one that I rode for several years and now my kids use since I upgraded to a 4x4 2 up CFmoto. I bought it with a bad rear end. The splines to the rear axle to the ring gear were worn out and slipped. I ended up having to replace the rear axle and the ring and pinion set because both had...

    Any Holzfforma/Neotec chainsaw owners?

    I have a ms440 Farmertec (Holzfforma) kit saw that I assembled. Ive ran it for a couple years as my firewood saw, and it worked pretty well. From most of the chat on the facebook groups, the MS660 and the 372xp seem to be the best in the Holzfforma line as far as quality and durability.

    Strange issue with a Toyota 2.7.

    I wold agree the first thing I would try is putting a Toyota oil filter on it. The correct part number is 90915-YZZG2 The YZZD3 listed above is NOT the correct part number.

    Champion Generator Engine Reliability

    I've owned 3 Champion generators and all 3 have been great. I have a 3500 watt open frame unit that is 10+ years old and still starts on the 1st pull. I had a 2000w inverter that ran beautifully and served me well until I sold it to upgrade. I upgraded to the Champion 3400w inverter to use with...

    Worth dropping the pan to change filter and clean magnets? 09 Elantra

    I have a 2008 Kia Spectra, which I believe is mechanically the same car as your Elantra. I dropped the pan and changed the filter an cleaned magnets at 180k miles. It kinda felt like a waste of time, because the filter showed no visible debris, and the magnets just had some minor fuzz on them...

    Missing glue around inner core

    I ran Nissan filters for a while and the Gonher made ones actually seemed pretty well made. I cut several open and found no issues and was actually quite pleased with their construction.

    FCS struts from Rock Auto?

    I swapped out all 4 struts with FCS quick struts on my Kia Spectra last March, so a little over a year in service. So far, no complaints. Ride is a little on the firm side, which I prefer anyways.
