      Using an ohm meter to test a high current circuit is not the best and can leave you thinking the part is good where actually it's not. Typically circuit 50 is a high current circuit and would be best...

      Rarely [as in almost never] is there a case that several parts are causing the same problem at the same time. It can be that one part caused others to fail. I've been a Shop Foreman way too long and...

      Avoid Meyle, URO, and most places that offer a lifetime warranty.

      Understand the best price may be locally, if you think there may be a warranty issue. Stuff that gets shipped does not make it to...

      And this folks is why you should not buy things from OReally's. Overpriced parts that are junk.

      The main reason why people like Bendpak is the price because they are cheap and built that way. If you want something with quality, Rotary has it wrapped up. I have a two post and I would recommend...

      Not certain what you are implying but there is plenty of information out there that the discs in the hands of the wrong person can cause serious damage. I've seen a tech ruin a block and head surface...

      I have seen headgasket blown between cylinders. It's usually caused by a technician cleaning the head surface with the fiber discs on an air die grinder. It's best you leave that tool in the tool box.

      Engines are engines. The oil pan should be fairly easy to remove. Once that is gone, then you can unbolt the rods and the pistons will come out. Of course the head has got to be removed so that will...

      Not that anyone cares but it is illegal to have the windows work all the time. Again, nobody cares so have at it.

      The trick with contact cement is that you need to dry before you put the two parts together. If it's not holding when you do that, you did not let it dry enough. Patience is the key when working with...

      I friend of mine does this regularly. He uses an air chisel instead of a hammer and punch. The tool he uses is blunt nose and it comes right out.

      You cannot bench test that starter. There is no support to the armature shaft [remember, you took out the starter and the bushing is in the transmission]. If you try, you will probably short out the...

      I vote for a Cabriolet. I also understand your want for a power top. They did make them in the Cabriolet but there are not a lot around. You will pay for a good one.

      Maybe the cat converter is starting to plug up?

      There is little to do but to tear things apart and see what's up. Most likely a head gasket. Although blocks/heads can crack, it's usually because they have had a bad life.
