Stainless Steel Zip Ties

A poster on the Lincoln forum was looking for a replacement for brake line clips on the rear axle. I liked this idea in a response. Example was for heater hoses but it looks like a solution for either. In a different forum a user made insulated stainless zip ties .... They said .... "I decided ...

Re: COVID Vaccinations

My wife and I really shut down when the pandemic struck. Absolute minimum in-person shopping. Groceries delivered and disinfected before coming in the house. Packages sat in the garage for two days before coming into the house. Company only on the deck with distancing maintained. Since we are vaccin...

Re: COVID Vaccinations

Good info, thanks for posting it.

Ya pays yer money; ya takes yer choice.

Personally, I'm not too worried about long term effects. I hesitate to buy green bananas. :mrgreen:

Re: COVID Vaccinations

UPDATE: We lost another friend to COVID-19, this time the 65 year old sister of a good old friend. She refused to be vaccinated and didn't have to die. Three good friends have survived it, one was hospitalized in ICU and had severe symptoms when released. We MAY have lost one woman in the US to the ...

Re: 1978 Lincoln Continental Coupe

It's time to sell the Lincoln. I'm having some health issues, not driving it, don't really enjoy working on it anymore, and need to clean out my garage/shop. Need to get it cleaned up and take it to some shows, cars & coffees, etc. this spring. If any Tiresmokers are interested, let me know. It'...

COVID Vaccinations

We lost a friend to COVID last night. Our son was VERY sick with it but managed to stay out of the hospital. I hope you all will get vaccinated when you have the opportunity. Wife and I had our first shot and the second is scheduled. 400,000+ deaths from COVID in the US; none from the vaccination.

Flare Fitting Gaskets

Didn't know these existed. Could be very useful.

Interesting that a package of 10 costs the same as 1 and less than 5. :?:

Other than the price nonsense, reviews are mostly very favorable.

GMs EV plan is nuts!!

This seems insane to me. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/29/business/general-motors-electric-cars.html No internal combustion engines means all plug-ins, no hybrids. Converting GMs market share to plug-ins means huge increase in generation capacity and grid expansions. Can't happen in 15 years. Eith...

Re: Ford 4.6, 5.4. 6.8 Spark Plug Thread

That would be GOOD!! I didn't read about plug blow out in the 2V but thought I'd read about 2V plugs seizing and breaking off or stripping out. Spent some time searching on line and didn't find an answer which engines have that problem. So far its only up to 6X,XXX miles, so maybe I'll never have to...

Ford 4.6, 5.4. 6.8 Spark Plug Thread

Good video on fixing spark plug threads on Triton engines. Well known problem with these engines blowing out plugs or threads stripping out when removing stuck plugs. I haven't changed the plugs on my 2002 Explorer 4.6 2V and hope I don't have to. The guy also suggests using Ford replacement coils, ...
