    Switch from Torsen to Locker

    Thanks - that terminology was new to me.

    What's a Panther car?

    Agreed on all points. But if it's a Torsen locker specifically (mechanical limited slip) and not just a generic clutch pack type limited slip, it should definitely be a 31 spline unit.

    You're absolutely right. I misread your first post. Definitely worth paying attention to when grabbing a carrier.

    I thought all the Rangers with factory Torsen lockers were 31 spline? Am I losing my mind here?

    More Bronco hear say.

    That looks downright sophisticated compared to my expectations.

    Simple things you hate doing?

    Watching you move the goalposts is hilarious. So they're just as good until: They get hot They get wet They are exposed to sand, etc Any other major ones?

    Can USB cords be spliced?

    It's as strong as regular solder as far as I know. Melts and reflows just like the traditional stuff.

    Can USB cords be spliced?

    Try a hot air rework station some time if you get the chance. Just apply the solder paste in the general area it needs to go, point the hot air at it, and it wicks onto the solder pads like magic.

    Not in the same way at all.

    Vintage tire changer?

    Nice. I've used my HF stand (like a simplified version of that without the pneumatic setup) a bit and it's worked well.

    Recommendations for replacement stereo?

    I generally agree with the above post. You can now buy a -very- adequate double DIN radio to fit your stock dash that includes Bluetooth and all the basic features for a reasonable price. Even name brands aren't expensive for their lower tier products.

    HEADERS

    Edelbrock made the 'tubular exhaust system' headers for years, but I don't know how long it's been since they stopped. Could be a decade or more.

    Simple things you hate doing?

    I've bounced back and forth on maintenance. I enjoy working on things if I can do it on my own schedule. When too much breaks at once it stops being a fun distraction and starts being just one more thing on my plate. At that point I'll farm things out to a local shop I trust as needed.
