This looks more like a mule than a prototype, and so the rear lower fascia more than likely came from the parts bin (I’m not 100% versed in Porsche parts). Read more

I think AvE’s theory is mostly correct. The NTSB video says the rods were tensioned before moving the span, then released after it was put on the pylons. But they noticed the cracking to continue to propagate, so they decided to increase tension on the PT rod in #11 to reduce the cracking. AvE posited the increase in Read more

I bought a set of Capri ratcheting ones recently, the ratchet mechanism is really nice. I don’t think they’re really meant for a proper reefing, but otherwise the feel and look are spot on.

I bought and restored a Craftsman saw just like that one, but haven’t run anything through it yet. How does yours run?

To be honest I’m not aware of much past a carfax, so I was hoping the hivemind would be able to help with anything.

These are known as air curtains in the industry. Basically yeah, kinda helps move air around the rotating tire. Usually aren’t all that effective, but once one automaker added them, everyone else followed.

I’m gonna go with it’s the southeast Michigan part. My Fiesta ST has blown at least 1 damper, potentially more (haven’t had time to get it up and check) in less than 40k miles from new. The fact is the roads around here are just that punishing; some of the freeways (94 and 75 towards Ohio) could honestly be used as Read more

If the chord connects on either end to the circle, then you have a right triangle with hypotenuse with the same length as your radius. Using half the length of the chord (8') and R (767.81'), you can solve for the third leg using Pythagoreum’s theorem, which would be equal to (R - x). Read more

I believe most Lincoln models have that, but I don’t believe it made it to any Fords.

I owned an R50 (first gen of the BMW ones, 2002-2006 MYs, R53 refers to the S variants) for a few years. Read more

I’ve driven one of these, and I have to say it’s a proper, rowdy, muscle car. Looks like there are quite a few under MSRP on autotrader, mighty tempting if I was in the market for a mustang GT premium/performance pack.

Sure looks like those are transmission casings, most likely for FCA (FCAs main casting plant and transmission plant are an hour north near Kokomo, IN) and the black plastic carriers even appear to be like those around Kokomo. Read more
