    Difference between plugs

    I decided to email NGK (I don't know why I just didn't do that in the first place) and this was the response: "The G has a copper infused ground electrode to channel heat away from the ground electrode."

    Difference between plugs

    Does anyone know what the difference is between NGK ZFR6F-11 and NGK ZFR6F-11G? The manual for my wife's 2011 Liberty says to use the 11Gs, but I am seeing the 11s as a stocked item in most places and the 11Gs as special order. After looking at NGK's website I can't really tell what the...

    Different gauge clusters on 1984 Caprice

    I have the rectangular version and do not have the trip odometer. It is the V8 with the 4-speed. I don't know if those options had anything to do with it or not. I do have the original window sticker from the dealer, but that doesn't really tell me anything about this.

    Different gauge clusters on 1984 Caprice

    I have an old Caprice I like to tinker with. In looking up various things on the web I have noticed two different styles of gauge clusters but cannot figure out what the reason is for the difference. Some have a round speedometer like this: <img...

    What was your first music album?

    First album was Joan Jett & The Blackhearts "I Love Rock N' Roll" I think that album dropped in 81; so I would have been 5 and I would have been listening to it on my Emerson stereo. I loved that album and that stereo. As a matter of fact I think my parents still have the stereo.

    Best price for dual port SAS drives?

    What are you trying to accomplish? How much storage are you looking for? Cheap JBOD and enterprise class dual port SAS usually don't go hand in hand <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" /> You can get 300gb ones for about $150. They are HP...

    Got me Some Whiskey, how to sip it? Over rocks?

    Heaven Hill makes bourbon that runs the whole gamut of good sipping stuff all the way down to stuff you should just use to clean your lawnmower <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" /> I happen to really like some of the Evan Williams stuff.

    Is ESATA history

    If you are only looking backing up your data then USB3.0 would work fine. It is plenty fast for that. If your had a lot of USB devices all running at once pushing data around you would see a decrease in throughput vs esata since esata isn't a shared bus. How much data are you pushing around...

    Coffee - Your Current Brew

    At home it's either Peet's Anniversary Blend or Major Dickasons's. On my way to work it's Cumberland Farms Dark Roast and in the office it is Seattle's Best Level 4.

    Just got a new laptop.

    While I am not familiar with the Y series Lenovo in general has come a long way since they purchased the consumer PC business from IBM in 2005. I've standardized on the Thinkpad T4xx series at work(I'm the IT Operations Manager) and they have been a solid choice. The gen1 X1 Carbons were a total...

    Purpose for different t-stat settings?

    The car cover blew off of it last fall and it got covered with leaves. It's pretty filthy right now. Once I get it cleaned up I can post pics. It's actually in really good condition. The interior is pristine. The body is in good shape. A couple little dings here and there where my grandmother...

    Purpose for different t-stat settings?

    I have an 84 Caprice coupe that I am looking to get running again. I have not had it on the road since 2006 and the kids really want me to get it running. They think it will be fun to take to the drive in. <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15"...

    Is 75k miles really high mileage?

    Given that most of the engines today will live well past 100k or even 200k miles (I got 240k out of a $13k Hyundai that was going strong when I got rid of it after 10yrs) does the 75k mile mark for HM oils really make sense? Is 75k miles still considered high mileage?

    Oil recommendation for 84 Caprice

    I'm not exactly sure of the transmission. I know it's a 4-speed and that's about where my knowledge ends <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" />

    Oil recommendation for 84 Caprice

    I have an 84 Chevy Caprice coupe with a 305 and just over 30k miles that I am contemplating taking out of storage for the summer. While it is old; it still has low mileage. It's been sitting for a while. I believe GM originally recommended 10w-30? Any special considerations on what to put in for...

    Oil recommendations for 07 Equinox and 08 Avenger

    Looking for thoughts on what I should be putting in my vehicles. The first is an 07 Chevy Equinox 3.4L with 180k miles. It has a small oil leak then doesn't leave any spots on the driveway, but I can see a damp spot when I am under it doing a change. It is driven about 90% of the time on the...
