comment Reverse grinds and transmission won't lock into 1st gear
@Lathejockey81 - you were the first person to mention synchronizers. You seem to be really confused.

@Lathejockey81 - you don't think the synchronizers wear out? They are mechanical parts like everything else. In fact, they are often made of brass, which will corrode if someone uses GL5 transmission fluid. Google it. I know what I'm talking about. Do you?

There are 2 parts to the clutch: One part is free to move with the engine. The other half mounts to the transmission.

FYI: Going from FORWARD gears to REVERSE gears is similar in concept, except the transmission components are moving - not the clutch's.

comment Front Suspension Rattle (Linked Sound Clip)
LOL - I had jack stands under the frame. My skills with The Force aren't that good. I wasn't sure if calipers were supposed to rattle like that. I replaced them and the rotors a year or so ago, so I probably did something wrong. I'll take it in to have it corrected. Thanks!

@TDHofstetter - I must have showed that video to countless shops. No one wanted to touch it, so I had to (see answer below).

I'm all dressed up pretty for work right now, so I can't go crawling under the truck at the moment. I'll check on this when I get back home, though! Thanks.

It has CV joints. If one of those were loose, the front end would fall off though. Right?

Independent. A slinger? Do you have a link? (I'd rather not have this go to Chat)

I've got 2 or 3, but they'll only record about 15 seconds of video. That MP3 started live as a 20-minute recording, and I edited out the useless parts. I've sent the video link to a few local shops that have email accounts. That way, when I bring it in, they'll at least know what noise to listen for.

Yeah. There just isn't anywhere to mount a camera. The MP3 recorder is tiny and can mount anywhere. The speakers don't even have to be pointed at the source.

One guy on YouTube has pointed out the wheel bearings - which I changed out when I put new rotors on the front.

Did it come with an owner's manual?

comment Sea Foam vs Sta-bil
I have heard of Sta-Bil clogging injectors, but not Sea Foam. On the other hand, I have not heard about Sea Foam extending the shelf life of fuel.

comment In an automatic transmission, what decides to change gears?
Without reading the wiki, is it vacuum and engine speed?

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.

Is losing 1-qt per 500-1000 miles common in rotary engines?

I'll look into it and ask around.

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.
