      Tuning instability is usually caused by the strings binding in the nut, not the tuners. Have a competent guitar tech give your guitar a setup. Even with a Gibson, Martin or any other new guitar for...

      What exactly does this have to do with Murphy's Law?

      Remember that every time you trade in a car that you are given wholesale for your trade and you pay retail for the new car.

      If it is like the 787, the door switch in the cockpit is a 3 position switch that is spring loaded to the center position. I will have to do a little research to make sure I got all of this correct....

      Well, there's the flaw in your premise. If you want to know about cars, a dealer salesman is probably the last person to ask. Quite often, if they don't know the answer to a question, they will make...

      Wrong assumption. Most places tell you up front that you can not return electrical parts whether you used them of not. Would you want to buy some electrical component that someone else burned up and...

      I would agree that Chinese quality is all over the map. That is because they offer various levels of quality in their products. If you want an alternator that is the same quality as Bosch OEM, they...

      Truly, I hope in some way you can help to turn around the dismal position the American manufacturing industry is in these days.

      The truth is that for so long we were the only kid on the block and...

      No, I think you missed the mark on this one. Being an American, for the most part is a celebration of ignorance. You can not buy 100% American anymore because most of our core technology's have moved...

      You might try taking the K&N off and throwing it in the trash and putting your OEM intake back on. The slight improvement in flow at WOT with a K&N is because they don't filter very well. Just ask...

      Check your grounds and positive connections. There is a major chassis ground underneath the air cleaner box that does work loose sometimes causing a no crank. Remove the airbox and look for an acorn...

      Being that the DC web site does not even list an H3332 head set, I would tend to believe that the E-Bay offering is nothing more than Chinese rip off garbage.

      From the E-Bay listing:

      Guess what? The 787 and the 767 are very close to the same size.

      I can't really say how different the 787 is in flight. My only air time on one was during Flight Test, which did not have all the...

      Some wrong assumptions here. Sounds like maintenance was completely neglected and the serp came apart and fouled the timing belt.

      Wrong assumption on the need for VCDS, as well. If you follow the...

      TDI's are a different animal than the gassers you have been working on. They are an interference engine, and if there is ANY possibility of the timing being wrong, the head needs to come off for...

      No actually, a T/B is more reliable than a chain. At about 200K miles, a chain, sprockets and guides will need to be replaced for about 4 times the cost of replacing a T/B.

      I must be on borrowed time. I have 147K miles on my TDI alternator.

      On the TDI's a common fail point is the one way over running clutched alternator pulley. I changed mine at 88K miles when I...
