Re: Patching Inner Tubes

I pinched a tube on my 19" tube while replacing my tire. Went to Wallmart bought a bicycle repair kit and repaired it. That was 3,000 miles ago.

Re: New engine - intermittent backfiring - stuck valve?

Open up the GAV as you are driving and see if that stops the problem.

It could be starving for fuel, add MMO and do as the others have said.

Re: Headlight Focus Procedure

I have to chuckle. We might blind on coming traffic WITH A 32 CANDLEPOWER BULB!

With some of the lights they install on todays cars, now that is blinding.

Re: Garage lights

t5's are what I have. What led bulbs do you get? I ask because I have not been able to find an led with more lumens than a t5.

Re: Hi Compression Heads

Tod, i currently have a Snyder 6.1 head and I am very happy with it.

What would the HP gain be for me to go to a 7.1?

Would I still use the lowest octane?

What is the cost?
