I plowed with a Chevy 1500 and a Ford F250. You could definitely feel the weight of the plow more on the smaller 1500 compared to the F250. The 1500 would squat quite a bit when the plow was lifted. The plow (a Western brand) was professionally installed on both trucks, and the only issues we ever had were electrical with the plow controls, the same kind of ...

You can install an external tachometer that reads your wheel speed. There's one on Amazon for Kawasaki for $19USD. Some clamp onto a spark plug wire, others are 2 piece, where one small piece clamps onto your wheel, and the other clamps onto a fork and measures the wheel RPM - but those are more for bicycles, not motorcycles (where you'd like engine RPM - ...

The front licence plate bracket on a Civic consists of 3 parts. The first is the part your dealing with. Inside the bumper there should be plates with nuts welded to it. Number 4 in the picture, 2 required. The only way to get at it is to remove the bumper fascia (plastic cover). In a civic this is pretty easy. There are only a hand full of bolts and push ...

You have a lot of questions. I won't be able to answer them all. I will say I have this motor sitting in my shop and have owned a few of these, TL/SV based. Should I be adding any lubricants to anything? Yes, use assembly lube. It's not a disaster if you don't. Assembly lube would typically apply connecting rod and main bearings but it won't hurt ...

As@ mac has stated a plow will fit and the truck will push snow. The primary considerations are how often and how long are you going to plow. The longer and more frequently you plow the more the suspension and driveline parts will be stressed. If you are just doing a few driveways you should have no problems. If you plan to plow commercially for long ...

You should be fine as long as you go with a custom hitch, meaning one designed to bolt directly to your frame. Most of what Toyota marketing says is just that, marketing. For what you are planing on using it for almost any hitch would do. I would recommend going with a class three hitch liked you mentioned in the event you ever wanted to pull something ...

I wanted to fit the brackets on the smaller seat, behind the drivers side (in a UK, right hand drive car). For my late 2005 model Focus, Mark II I think, UK registration "XX54" there was nothing on the door side hinge to lever up with a screwdriver (as per many instructions out there), instead the back seats came out according to these instructions on the ...

It does sound fairly typical that these things come with no instructions. Your car manual should have information on isofix, but failing that, I found the following information on a post by Phil on www.focusowners.com - which seems like a forum you would want to look at for Ford Focus specifics. Have a read of the full post over there. Key info from the ...

For fitting ISOFIX (LATCH in the US) to a European Mk2 Ford Focus (2005-2010) my steps were as follows. Note that this is for a UK-registered vehicle with the single-split rear seat behind the driver. No removal of seat belts or any other bolts should be required. Disclaimer - this is my DIY attempt, I'm not a qualified mechanic so please only carry the ...

As in your comment, typically they are one of the following: Have tabs that require you to use a flat tool (ie screwdriver) to pop them out Have small push in plastic pieces that surround a screw hole. Pop the plastic piece out, then unscrew the panel Hidden screws somewhere. You may find that you have to remove a surrounding panel via the screwdriver ...

The nut you are referring to is meant to be welded in place. The bolt then threads into and out of this nut without it moving. What you have run in to is that the bolt is so rusted in the nut, that it broke the welds and now the nut is spinning. The bad news is that they don't make special tools for welded nuts. A set of locking pliers sometimes called ...

It's possibly viable The 1cm of fork that is available to mount a clip-on to is a concern Locktite will not make it any safer Options Depending on how invested you are in clip-on's you could use standard cafe bike handlebars and mount them to your risers just like current handlebars are mounted. Back in the 80's we used to just flip handlebars over in ...

I've done a quick search and found this image for a 1991 Corolla, manual, sedan, for the canadian market. You have 2 bolts to remove, the one on the top of the pillar and the one that attach both end of the seat belt. They may be hidden Under some plastics panel. It should be an easy task but make sure to tighten the bolt back!!

I think you have an option to either use the custom installed hitch by Toyota or an aftermarket hitch. It's your choice. The after market hitch will help you tow even more weight maybe. Toyota of course will tell you that theirs is the best because they want you to buy it but the choice is dependent on you. I would go for the aftermarket hitch because they ...

I ended up finding manuals here: http://sm.gpona.com:9001/si/home.do Select the Acadia and then drill down through: Service Manual > Driver Information & Entertainment > Cellular, Entertainment, Navigation > Repair Instructions > Digital Radio Receiver Replacement.
