    Gotta be a spam call, right?

    Okay, I'm going to describe the situation and I'd like some opinions on this. First, we (wife and I) have a land line telephone number, but no answering machine or answering service on the land line phone. We only answer numbers that we know. However, both the wife and I each have a cell phone...

    A tale of two ST2 Super Techs

    A slow day today and I'm just waiting out the snow that's going to hit us, so..... I have several applications that take the Motorcraft FL820 variants. In the past, I've used some closeout Casite (Hastings) filters that RockAuto sold really cheap, but that supply has now dried up. I picked up a...

    Poly Technologies M-14/S (American Rifleman, December 2021)

    In the latest American Rifleman magazine (December 2021), there is an article on the Poly Technologies M-14/S. According to the article, this gun was imported from China from 1988-1994. This gun was a knock-off or a reverse-engineered gun copied from the American version. Here is the question...

    Smokeless motor oil wanted...

    Okay, I know there will be literally dozens of posters wanting to be the first (or second, or third, etc...) to say: "FIX YOUR ENGINE!", but read my entire post before you fire back, okay? I'm wanting an engine oil that reduces smoke when the engine is running. So does anyone here HAVE...

    Out with Castrol, in with Champion

    For years, I've been using some Castrol oil filters on my '98 Ranger 3.0 engine. These filters have the 3600 number on them that so many different companies use. I got them cheap w/free shipping from a website that is now defunct about 5 years ago. I never cut one open, but the web seller said...

    Anybody recognize this brand of wheel?

    Long story, short: My son owns a Lincoln Navigator that has these aftermarket wheels on them. I personally wish it had the stock wheels on it, but it came with the vehicle when it was purchased, so now we have to live with it. Perhaps stock wheels will get put on when the tires are worn. Anyway...

    Cheapie power washer pump source?

    I'm looking for a source for the cheap power washer pumps. The kind I'm looking for bolts to the back of a B&S/Honda/Chonda type of pump and hooks up to a garden hose. The specs say these pumps typically put out about 2,400-3,100 PSI, but that's probably exaggerated. Anybody got a source with a...

    Bluetooth home stereo upgrade recommendations for Pandora?

    For decades I've listened to a classic rock station via broadcast. They have now cut their play list, increased their advertising and have now push politics pretty hard. So I'm looking recommendations for an adapter that I can play Pandora over my home stereo. I'd also like to take it with me...

    Any decent FREE Lightscribe software available?

    Okay, I'm converting an LP to CD for a couple of friends. Way back in the '70s they were in a local band and recorded a single album. Of course, this was way before CDs were available and they would like to have their album put on a CD. I have a Lightscribe system (allows burning a picture on...

    Bradley GT-blast from the past

    Thought about putting this in the car section, but I think it would get more memories here. <a href="https://ksu.craigslist.org/cto/d/manhattan-rare-1980-bradley-gt2/6985707047.html"...

    HVAC techs: Help with Aire-flo (Lennox) furnace

    Any HVAC techs, especially Lennox techs with access to part numbers, willing to help a single mom fix her furnace fairly cheap? A lady acquaintance has an older Aire-flo (this is a Lennox brand, right?) that has a dry, noisy inducer fan. Briefly tried to find a part number online to replace it...

    Why would any filter manufacturer advertise here?

    So we all know that it takes advertising to keep a site like this open, right? You know that this site doesn't operate for free and companies that have an oil-related product come here to pay and put up some advertising. It's how BITOG stays up and running. (Okay, a little money by some members...

    RockAuto now sells batteries

    RockAuto's latest email says they now sells batteries. The selling price of a few of them listed was not a bargain by any means. I put two in my shopping cart just to see what shipping would cost. One was $17 and the other was $22. No clue how they would handle a battery on warranty. One item...

    Recommendation for gun safe

    Well, I've put it off long enough. I need to purchase a gun safe either this month or sometime next year. I have not thought of a price range, but looking through a Menards flier, I saw this one and it made me make a decision to purchase one. Pros and cons of this one? COO of the purchase will...

    Who'll be brave and order closeouts from RA?

    Most closeout parts from RockAuto come from the Sugar Land, Texas warehouse. Sugar Land, Texas is a suburb of Houston. Unless your name is Rip Van Winkle and you just woke up, you know that Houston is underwater. I clicked on a link that shows all closeouts for a certain vehicle of mine and...

    Toro with 21 horse Kohler. Any easy replacements?

    Looking at a decent Z5000 Toro zero turn with a 21 horse Kohler Courage that has a hole in the block. I'll make it no secret that I hate Kohler engines for reasons that I won't discuss here. Any other makes (B&S, Kawasaki, etc.) that would be an easy drop in?

    Multiple CD BURNER? (instead of copier)

    I'll try to explain my situation and I'm looking for some advice. Our church recently updated the sound system and I (along with another guy) got roped into "running" it. The sound equipment was installed by an outside company and now I'm in the process of getting familiar with the whole system...

    EPA to ban race cars?

    This could awaken the sleeping giants who are race fans, or it simply means nothing. <a href="http://jalopnik.com/is-the-epa-trying-to-ban-the-conversion-of-street-cars-1758013542" target="_blank">http://jalopnik.com/is-the-epa-trying-to-ban-the-conversion-of-street-cars-1758013542</a>
