    Oil Filter Bypass Valve Pressure Vs Engine Oil PSI

    Yes I get that, but my question is when they spec a oil filter bypass spring rate, is there a formula that is used to determine what that number should be based on the engine's max oil pressure? Example: if an engine has a max oil pressure of 80 psi, should the filter bypass pressure be 16 psi...

    Oil Filter Bypass Valve Pressure Vs Engine Oil PSI

    Chain cleaner

    I use SRAM chains with the removable link. The chain comes off in half a second. After every ride I soak it in a jar of varsol and it comes out shining like a new dime.

    Are you referring to me Drew? Are you suggesting that my answer to a "Why? Were you there?" call-out wasn't sufficient?

    Ryan I've had friends and associates try to peddle that stupidity to me and they get caught off very quickly. This is not the day for this. Have some respect.

    Hyundai Pony - Anyone own/remember them?

    A friend bought a new Pony around '85-6 and the car had severe rust within a year. Hyundai has come a looong way since then, but I don't think I could ever bring myself to buy one based on that horrific first impression.

    New Lawn boy 2-stroke.

    The exhaust has a bit of a "burble" to it. They are actually set up to run fairly lean. I've seen on other boards where people have drilled out the main jet because it can't be replaced. I have never felt the urge to do this. The only thing I have done is turned up the idle. You are going to...

    New Lawn boy 2-stroke.

    I have been running Amsoil Saber Pro at 75:1 in my Duraforce for 4 or 5 years. I intend to run this unit for 25 years. It runs very well. This is not a recommendation, just letting you know that you won't seize solid at 50:1.

    CFL failure when using with incandescent ???

    I started using them on the outside of my garage last fall in fixtures that had an open bottom. They weren't exposed to the elements and there should not have been excessive heat build up, but 2 failed in the same fixture in very short order. The latest one has lasted 3 months and is still...

    Time for a New Circular Saw

    FYI, I picked up a Dewalt today. It was $20 off and appeared to be light and well built. It will be used for a deck project this summer and the odd repair or project here and there. Certainly not for daily use. I'm 40 and it will likely be around until the family decides that its time to hide...

    Time for a New Circular Saw

    Looking at Dewalt, Craftsman, Makita, etc. I see that some models have a laser guide. Is this a functional feature or a gimmick?

    His song "Same Old Lang Syne" is played a lot this time of year. I absolutely hated the song when it was current, but for some reason began to appreciate it over the last few years. Sad...
