comment What is the right way to attach the Micarb to the engine head of my Enfield Bullet 500?
Can you fabricate up a little piece of steel to fit across your new air filter (inside the cone)? That would give you a stock-like apparatus to drill a hole in, allowing the manifold bolt to still hold your new air filter on.

comment Nissan Hardbody Heavy Duty Rear Leaf Springs
We've got a 4x4 place in town that will get me aftermarket Rancho Suspension, but they want over twice the cost of the original replacement springs. I have not found any other type of business around here that works on springs. Zip 75601.

comment Nissan Hardbody Heavy Duty Rear Leaf Springs
I wound up adding some helper springs, but I'd still like to find some old original stuff. I'd rather not spend $600 for new ones on this 20-year old truck if I don't need to.

comment 1 Piece versus 2 Piece Drive Shaft
That's kind of what I'm thinking, too, Gabriel. I found several questions about it on various forums. All I found get distracted into why the person is asking the question, then they spend their energy trying to solve the problem instead of answering the question.

comment Oil burning smell and slow oil leak
Could be because some of the old oil is out in the open or smeared over the engine when it was drained. On the coolant, be sure to keep an eye on the overflow reservoir. It is designed to slowly go down while keeping your radiator full.

When is the last time the oil was changed? Is the coolant level OK?

comment What is the Magic ON temperature for Electric Fans?
Not sure how old your car is, Brian, but I know the chemical characteristics of the goo those sensors use can change characteristics as the parts get older. You might be able to change out the sensor and have your fan turn on when it is expected. Also, if your car is like my truck, it could have a separate sensor for the gauge in the dash. In that case, the gauge sensor could be off.
