    90hp Johnson outboard question

    Hard to tell but it sounds like a 2 stroke to me. :) Since it runs fine at WOT and not so good at lower RPM, you mich check the carbs. There are some small ports for low speed operation that may be clogged. Carbs on those old 2 strokes are simple to clean once you get them off the...

    Fumoto Valve-long term endurance

    The only complaint I had about the valve is the oil flow was slow. Made the change take longer than it could have. I added greasing my zerks on my u-joints to the task nd that took up the time but I blamed the valve when I had the reach around at odd angles to get to the zerks at every...

    Did You Do A "Break-In" Oil Change On Your Riding Lawn Mower/Zero-Turn?

    I do the first one early. 1-2 hours then dump it. if it looks "shimmery" (it will most of the time). I reload with a 30 W oil (straight, 10W or 5W. Im in the south so it doesnt matter) then run another 1-2 hours. If it looks shimmery again I keep going until it looks clean. Then I'll...

    it the passenger front side of a 14 sienna. Wanting to not replace the entire axle and also not risk losing a bearing or something while disassembling the ball end. I saw the video on youtube by car care nut and there was a part where he had to airhammer the bearing holder off the spline...

    Stretch / slipover CV boots any good

    i have seen some ads for stretchable cv boots that slip over the big end of the axle. this would be much easier than taking it apart, My only concern is if the rubber is good for long life after that. CV are not loose or making noise on hard turns si they should still be good. the...

    Too much grease on caliper brake pin?

    I've tried most of the fancy greases and always go back to Sil-glyde. it does not dry out like the others. I dont know why they do that even the "SUPER DUPER MEGA EXTREME LAVA RATED" grease comes out like chalk on the next brake change.

    Using an old CRT TV set for Amazon Prime video?

    Yes you could "MAKE" it work but it would have large black bars on top and bottom, or some content cut off on the sides. The converter itself will be ~$30 then the roku or firestick another @30. You will have spent 60 to have a frustrating TV viewing experience. Find a good cheap...

    Disappointed with Samsung TV

    If it had a one year warranty and you bought it on a Visa card, LESS thank 2 years ago, call your credit card company. A lot of Visas have warranty doubling as a perk on the card. They will double up to a 1 year warranty to make it two years. Others (mastercard, Amex, Discover, etc) may...

    Boosting your backup lights?

    If the driveway is the only problem try some cheap solar powered landscape lights. They dont need to be bright just easy to see in the dark.
