I don't. But as an almost-EE, I do have a question. They taught us at Purdue that an electrical arc is a sort of plasma, with a very low resistance (lower than copper as I recall). So how exactly do

What exactly is the problem ? Lots of folks use "vapor lock" to cover several different conditions, so it's important to ask. If it's true vapor lock (fuel boiling in the line between the tank & pum

Lots of folks are very careless about the term "vapor lock". IMO this isn't it. Instead, the fuel is boiling in the float bowl and the vapor is filling the intake manifold. A common cause of floodin

I must not be understanding you correctly, Steve. You want a brass right-angle fitting, with tapered pipe threads on one side; and a compression fitting on the other side, correct ? MMC has them in

Better, but I'm still confused. I've seen compression fittings with both male & female threads on the fitting; but AFAIK there always has to be a tube for the compression sleeve to fit around, or it

The bearings won't be exposed (unless you mean 1870's). Probably the easiest is to just puncture the system so the R12 leaks out ... although that's a shame both from an environmental point of view

I haven't tried it, but an air ratchet sounds like it should work. You might have to 'help' it a bit to break the studs loose, but that shouldn't be too big a deal. Randall _________________________
