    rethread an aluminum oil pan?

    So I just got back into the RBV crowd today....wood woot! Got a 91 explorer with the M5OD in it :D Anyway, I just did an oil change on it and it looks like someone tried to put a heli-coil (sp) in the drain plug. I put the plug back in after the change and its not in all the way but its tight...

    Newbie CB setup?

    So since I'm getting my F-150 here pretty soon, I'm already making plans to tinker with it, which includes CB radio. Problem is I know absolutely NOTHING about CB radios :D So, with that in mind, what would everyone here recommend for a CB setup? Don't need anything too fancy or overly...

    '97 F-150 Available engines?

    Just wondering if anyone knows what motors were available in the older '97 F-150? Been eye-balling one I want to buy but its just the base XL package and I can't remember if you could get the V8s in the XL or if Ford would make you step up to the next trim package to get it.

    Bad Flywheel and messed up bolts

    So I went to install a new clutch in my Ranger yesterday, and as I've come to expect from this thing, it fought me every step of the way. Went to drop the exhaust out of the way and the bolts that connect the Y-pipe to the manifolds wouldn't move on the passenger side. Just to get the pipe down...

    Opinions: Mossberg Tactical .22lr

    I know I've been gone for awhile, working on average 55 hours a week or more, but I heard about this particular rifle and wondered if anyone has/used one and what your opinion of it is? I might get one myself if its even halfway decent, local gun shop quoted me $249.99, seems like a good deal...

    Oh noes, teh Slave Cylinder again!

    So it seems that every year or so.... I have to replace the slave cylinder in my truck due to it being rather leaky. So far its gone through 3 slaves over the past 20k miles, any ideas on what can cause that? My first thought was the pilot bushing....dunno if that'd do it though.

    Ford dominates truck pull!

    I must have the worst luck....

    because just about every audio component I buy, blows up or quits working, completely randomly. I have a Pioneer DEH-P1300USB headunit that has completely quit working, totally out of the blue (and yes I checked fuses and wiring). One day, it was working fine in the morning, and me and the...

    Random garage find!

    So the house (owned by my GF's grandparents) I just moved into had alot of random stuff around it when I first got here, and they mentioned that theres a mower in the garage I can use. So today I go to mow the yard, found the pushmower in there but then I caught a glimpse of dull yellow hiding...

    Custom grind cam or......?

    Was browsing youtube vids a few days ago and found a 4.0 OHV that has an incredibly aggressive idle, sounded like a very radical cam. The only major aftermarket company I know of that does cams for the 4.0 OHV is Comp Cams and neither of their offerings looked like they'd produce a very...
