    Oil injection pump issue. Polaris XLT snowmobile

    1995 Polaris XLT snowmobile. the lever on the pump is sticking - which is causing issues with the throttle cables. how to fix? or how to source other than used? I know, I could pre-mix, but I'd prefer to fix it correctly

    Aircraft partnership, non flying.

    That plane is beautiful! Certainly you have a passion for it - and you are familiar with the industry. Someone more practical may say: "how else could you make $ with the same money". However, to me, it depends how certain you are that you will come out ahead, or at least not lose anything...

    getting car quotes via email negotiation

    Many dealers wont give prices via email. HOWEVER, in my experience: the dealers that wont give a price, are also very likely to play games in person. on our last 3 cars I DID get email responses. no games. very good prices.

    Audio updates on old headunits

    You can certainly run the speaker level outputs from your head unit into many amps that have those inputs. Also, to retain the proper "look" I just installed a Blaupunkt Bremen 46 into an older car. It has modern features with the old-school single din look.

    mitsubishi outlander

    Why?!?? We thought we wanted one until we test drove one. Unimpressive. Terrible seats. Very little discount. Jatco CVT. why would you want one?

    VW's 1.4 TSI uses camshafts build into head...

    That engine is in our Jetta, minus the cylinder deactivation. Great mpg and lively acceleration. We're putting 20k annually on it, I hope it holds up.
