  1. As a Millennial/Gen-Z (born in 1998), the original draw to the s30 was it's classic look and history, but in the end, the main reason I bought it was the affordability, as Namerow said. Had the z been more expensive, it would have been unrealistically out of my price range. Buying parts for the car is relatively inexpensive, and so is the up front cost of the car itself. Slap in the ease of maintenance and repair, and it's a very practical car to buy as far as classics go. That being said, an old 911 is, coincidentally, my 'dream' car. However, to buy one and drive it with regularity would be

  2. Well first of all, let me be clear that I'm no lubrication expert, but now that I've got a couple more minutes, let me try to explain a little bit. First of all, I think the premise that both the static and dynamic pressure are involved is incorrect. Since the bypass valve is around just the filter media, the static pressure should have no effect at all. The only pressure that should matter is the differential pressure across the filter media. Any static pressure should come out immediately in the math. Second, I would claim that the differential pressure across the filter media (ass

  4. The problem with that clip is this, and it's a terrible commentary on what happened to our government during the Trump administration: anything Trump or Pompeo said at any time could safely be assumed to be a lie. This is especially true of Trump, who was lying about 90% of the time. Pompeo was his stooge and parrot. It also is reasonable to assume the Homeland Security quote was written by Trump appointees whose job was to agree with him. Therefore, I discount everything from all three of those sources. It's a sad day when you have to assume that most of what your government says is lie

  5. I'll sum up my position and let it go after that: If I had done as well as Fauci has, considering the administration's ineptness and mess he was faced with until January, knowing that the science and knowledge around this pandemic was changing every week, and also considering the internal and external politics of the health organizations he has to deal with, I'd be very damn proud of what I had done. I firmly consider him to be the best source of information in the US.

  7. I share your common thought on the media, “The true enemy to all of us”. I loathe the media and its’ agenda which I believe is to cause division, strife and fear in their effort to promote their business and control the masses and the direction of the country. Unfortunately, we allow it, and bite into the agenda hook line and sinker. Sadly, I only discovered this about 4 years ago when the whole controversy about the border wall came up. As a resident of San Diego, I am quite familiar with the wall and all of its pro’s and cons. While the local news station here would

  8. I think if you read this you may understand what we're saying. You should pull the dizzy out and see where the spindle is sitting. Get the motor at tdc, explained in this thread, then pull the distributor. It could be something simple but the only way to find out is get out there and try to figure it out yourself. We'll help all we can but there's no shortcuts looking at a screen. When you're at tdc and then remove the distributor this is what you should see...

  9. I take it the transmission selected all the gears before you dis,antled it? It will not move (jammed) the 1st/2nd selector or you can't select it, meaning the striker rod won't go over into the 1st/2nd selector? I'm trying to understand you problem a little better. It could be a problem with the selector interlock balls. You should have 4 interlock balls (two between each selector rod and three checking balls. The checking balls are installed with the springs and caps after each selector rod is installed, but the interlocks must be fitted during assembly, before you fit the next sele

  10. As a journeyman utility mechanic I trained in light, medium and heavy duty vehicle maintenance and repair, steel and aluminum fabrication (there was a fabrication shop with a large shear, sheet metal brake, iron worker, hossfeld bender, gas, img and tig welding equipment), and the shop had a full machine shop with a Bridgeport mill, metal lathe with a 12” headstock, several industrial type drill presses, a 10 ton hydraulic press, cylinder head tooling, brake service equipment, exhaust service equipment. So I was overqualified as an aerospace machinist. That Cincinnati mill is awesome

  12. I long for the moment they tell me I don’t have to wear this ******* mask anymore. I know, if you have been vaccinated you don’t need it outdoors, but I spend 8 to 10 hours a day inside The Big Shed, and company policy still requires masks and social distancing.

  13. Different customer demographic, for sure. Both vehicles rusted out at the same (rapid) rate, though*. As for the proportion of each marque's new-vehicle numbers written off from collision damage, that would be an interesting statistic to know. We could speculate, but actual numbers would be better. Might make a good undergraduate thesis topic for somebody enrolled in Business with a minor in Sociology. (* Kudos to Porsche for eventually becoming one of the first in the industry to introduce galvanized panels into the construction of their products.)

  14. @dutchzcarguyI looked it up. The material cost to print the wiper boot in TPU is $0.76. I may have spent an hour creating the model in Inventor, and the printer took about 4 hours to print it with supports everywhere. BTW, the supports were a pain to remove because the TPU is so tough and layer adhesion is fantastic. If I were to make another, I think I'll try using soluble PLA for the supports.

  15. I completely agree. Unfortunately they are not making the inner wheel arch yet. I have contacted them and made request, they are working their best to do most of the parts as possible. I have their floor sets already.

    This is a 3D Assembly Model (.stp format) of a pair of LH and RH Interpart Lift Louvre Lock Assemblies. The assembly contains individual part models of the lock components. These plastic locks are no longer available so I hoping that these files will be of use to someone that needs to make replacements. This model was created using Solid Edge ST5. Also included is 3D pdf file of the same assembly for those that don't have a cad program and simply would like to view the model, it requires Adobe Reader X or higher to use. I have done my best to accurately model these with measurements ta

  19. I just installed a used 4-speed to replace a 5-speed that is no longer functional (long story). I opened the 4-speed up to replace the input shaft bearing because it had been exposed since the transmission was stored without the front cover and I thought some dirt may of gotten into the bearing. I had to remove the three fork rods to pull the bearing. I noticed that the 3rd 4th rod seemed very tightly stuck into the adapter plate as were the detent balls in the vertical hole between the shafts. I reassembled the transmission and discovered no 1st or 2nd gear. I pull the transmission and
