    No Oil

    I was at the Street Machine Nationals many years ago. The put a rice burner in the middle of a hoarse coral, drained the oil, and put a cinder block on the gas pedal. It was going to be a "show" of an engine exploding. That rice burner ran, without any oil, until the thing ran out of...

    Archeological Evidence for the Old Testament

    There have been a WHOLE BUNCH of scientific, physical, archeological evidence found verifying the historical accuracy of many stories in the Old Testament in my lifetime. As a kid, there wasn't much archeological evidence at all. Today, there's quite a bit. For example, the City of Jerrico...

    Brakes, blocks and valves ‍

    I only have some basic info for you from redoing my own brakes (stock front disk, rear drum). 1. I've read that the proportioning valve/distribution block (like your picture) allows for a very minor delay in applying the rear brakes (front brakes grab a moment before the rear brakes) so the ***...

    69 charger pick it apart

    Nice car. That close to original, I'd want a factory radiator and battery. I'm sure the Charger guys will chime in with much more info. I think it looks like a nice car

    Chrome Powder coat... how good is it?

    The trouble with chrome powder coating is that to get the "chrome look", the aluminum in the powder has to float to the top...where it's not protected. Adding a clear coat (powder anyway) dulls it A LOT. It's not an issue of chipping the chrome powder.... you literally can't touch it. OK for...

    1970 GTX question

    My vote is that if you want a 4speed, it is WAY easier/cheaper to buy a 4speed car. It may cost a little more since a 4speed GTX will automatically be a dana60 car.

    Covid hits home.....and looks to be on it's way out!

    Dude, you're doing the right things. Make sure to keep an eye on your oxygen level. You can get those little "clothespin" things they clamp on your finger at the drive through at Walgreens for about $15. Contact your doctor and watch your oxygen.

    Sandblasting building heat?

    Well, don't blast with walnut shells around a source of ignition. Sand should be OK, but I'm definitely not an expert

    Novel way to generate electricity

    This would absolutely work to store energy. I read a non-technical article a few years ago on a related topic. The article talked about storing energy as inertia of high speed spinning disks in ultra-low friction environment. Put energy in, spin disk faster. Take energy out, draw energy off...
