I found a couple of YouTube’s about them. Easy to find once I knew what to call them. They seem to be popular among ham radio operators. I need them to re-wire a couple of things on my motor coach....

Limits are good for both sides. They help preserve the peace and keep a good balance.

Sometimes just giving guidance has more value than picking up the tool belt.

I think that the switch to requiring DEF was 2007 or so. Early ‘07 Silverados don’t need it.

In the last 6 month the EPA made it very difficult to remove the emissions crap. They cracked down on...

Duramax fuel filters

There is a small but thriving industry in making lift pumps that go between the tank and the OEM filter. They go for $700 each, and there are 2 or 3 companies that make them. They still suck from the...

There is no pump in the tank. In fact, you have to hand prime new filters with a pump and a bleed screw on the filter housing. Same story if you run the tank dry. The “sending unit” in the tank is...

I don’t think a filter can do any good if everything is flowing past a leaky seal and bypassing the media. Seems like increased flow would just leak faster.

I’m no expert on fluid dynamics, but the only pressure feeding a Duramax filter is the atmosphere, unless you have a lift pump.

It is definitely not a lab quality test. I’m mostly taking the observation about the gasket or seal fit. I picked up a couple of Delco filters, and I plan to do some measuring and comparison next...

I will let Tim speak for himself, but I can think of 3 possibilities.

1) won’t obstruct lighting.
2) won’t interfere with heating/cooling or air circulation. Yeah, I know, “don’t leave the door...

I recommend that you confirm your conclusion about the deformation. What make and model is it? Is there a dealer nearby. Are new parts and OEM gaskets available?

Our 5 year old Bosch smoked in the spring. We went shopping for a replacement. A new equivalent Bosch is 7 to 8 hundred, and it will only last another 5 years. I think the Miele is 900, and will...

I found the definitive test that I should have started with. I used the OBD to close the LF isolation valve. The pedal did not go to the floor.

The ABS system comes in two parts. The valve body, and the electronics. I think there may also be an ABS computer module.

I should have a new valve body from RockAuto in Wednesday.

During the testing, I also tested with just the rear connected and the front plugged. Again, not rock hard, but not...
