    Slip Yoke Plug Leaking

    It is difficult for me to tell from the photo, but if the plug is convex with the dome pointed outward, it is a Welch plug. A Welch plug is seated by being struck on the dome which expands the plug's circumference.

    Interesting Diag

    @clinebarger, please explain disconnecting the bus bar and why disconnecting it separates the body from the underhood electrical. Is a bus bar part of the fuse box? I always enjoy and learn from your postings. Thanks.

    The vise is only a 4 inch one so it's not being used for heavy work. I searched for furniture cups but found nothing large enough to accommodate 5 inch wheels.

    Magliner Gemini Hand Trucks

    I have a Magliner HMK111UA4, a basic aluminum hand truck. It is very well made and, in my opinion, worth the extra money.

    Any issue driving carbureted vehicle with choke pulled slightly out?

    The exhaust manifold on this car is directly below the intake manifold, which is part of the cylinder head. Gasoline leaking from the carb will drip onto the exhaust manifold.

    Wired network vs wifi network

    The Google mesh routers that I own each have only two ports. To do home runs, more ports will be needed on one. Will the use of an ethernet hub affect performance?

    In creating a wired backhaul where three mesh routers will be used, is it customary to daisy chain the wired connections among the three or should the connections to the satellites be home run to the mesh router closest to the modem?

    Need help choosing an air hose coupler

    I use Prevost safety fittings. When the button on the side of the connector is pressed, pressure is released, then the fitting can be removed. It takes the drama out of disconnecting a long hose.
