comment Oil leak from oil pan in new car, will gasket repair have shorter life than factory seal?
@WilliamKF It stands for Room Temperature Vulcanizing which is a type of sealing material that hardens at room temperature and is used to seal things like a gasket does.

It's RTV then which kind of sucks honestly but I guess it is cheap and easy for a machine to squirt on.

comment straight pipes and carb rejetting?
I think my answer still applies changing a straight pipe to a larger straight pipe isn't going to significantly change the performance of the engine to the point where you have to retune the engine.

@Dr.Pepper Because it isn't a constant live... for some reason it is a delayed turn off. Probably because the factory radio is allowed to play for five minutes after the vehicle is turned off if the person wants to. After that they have to start the car so as to not kill the battery.

With the vehicle off try pressing the power on the headunit most will display the clock only with the power off. Try again after half an hour without starting the car is the clock still showing? If not it is probably a wiring issue meaning something is cutting power to the unit. If the clock still displays but is reset/wrong then it is probably the headunit itself.

@Dr.Pepper chances are that the constant power isn't actually a constant power. Maybe a 30 minute power. Where are you getting the lead from a random loom or fuse box?

comment Why wasn't my engine getting fuel?
Did you use fuel stabilizer before letting the fuel sit for that long? Your fuel may have degraded and left tarnish throughout the fuel track.

Use a proper penetrating oil like liquid wrench or PB blaster for starters.
