comment How to Inspect a Fuel Filter to See if it Needs Replacing?
@DucatiKiller I have wish I could up vote that story multiple times. That's such a gem of Dad wisdom that sounds stupid and then you go, "oh, I see what you're saying." I'll have to use it on my boys when the time comes. ;-)

comment Ford Focus 2004 1.6l Rear Noise
Driving on a flat = repetitive slapping sound? The volume of the sound peaks at 20 mph? Is there any change in pitch? Or is it just an intermittent transient noise? Does it get faster with speed or stay constant?

Incorrect again. That's not how the math works. Every time cells are exposed to a risk factor, they're at risk. Don't put fuel in your mouth.

Nice before and after. I'll bet this question gets a lot of traffic this winter!

Incorrect. Gasoline is a cancer risk. The NIH has plenty of studies but this one is the most relevant to putting fuel in your mouth. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1128333

Don't ever put your lips anywhere near fuel. Cancer is bad.

comment Ventilation of batteries
My inclination would be to separate the two functions: put a stout metal (grounded, if possible!) mesh over the batteries for security and something like a flip down shelf some distance above that to catch dirt. That way, you can have ventilation, security and dirt prevention all at once! Obviously, it's your stable so you have to make the call.

comment Leftover parts after head gasket change; are they engine mounts or braces?
Some hints for people answering the question: the 2.2 is the four cylinder engine and the pictures appear to be on the lid of a washing machine (to give a sense of scale).

comment 1st gear hard to engage unless stopped, Subaru 2004 Impreza Outback Sport
As is my WRX. If I don't match the revs nearly exactly, the shifter won't move into gear (which I'm okay with given the leverage that the wheels have on the transmission in first!)
