comment Squeaking brakes on motorcycle - an issue or not?
@RoryAlsop He's not asking a question, he is saying his bike was squealing and cleaning the brakes solved his problem. Am I missing something? It's not a great answer but it seems to me that he is attempting to answer.

comment Brake flush vs. Replacing the brake fluid
It's not a gimmick when it's a recommended PM service from the manufacturer. Not saying it's never oversold, but it is a required maintenance service on several vehicles

comment Why did manufacturers go to other than 1:1 transmission ratios?
But in 1:1 the input shaft is locked with the output shaft, there is no gear involved

comment How can I tell if I have bad cats?
The OP is asking How to know when the Cat is bad, not why not drive with a bad cat. This does not answer the question asked.

comment What is the recommended interval change a Holden Barina timing belt?
I would add to @Paulster2 answer and tell you to find another shop, never go back there as the technician cannot be trusted.

comment Will using the AC accelerate refrigeration loss due to a leak?
@RobertCartaino When AC system is not in use pressures are around 80 -100 psi depending on outside air temp. When operational high side pressures are in the 200 - 400 range, and low side is in the 40 - 50 range. In your short term situation and since you know it's an o-ring you might even have some luck with the AC recharge kits with the stop leak in them.

comment Will using the AC accelerate refrigeration loss due to a leak?
That shouldn't cost that much to fix, it's just an o-ring. Does require evac, and recharge which depending on the shop may be more than you are willing to spend, all in all topping off the system should work for a short time

Do you know where and what is leaking? IE o-ring on a line, compressor, evaporator etc?

@Paulster2 found this, but no idea where it's from or if it's reliable. This site says Ford 170-250 L6 385, and Ford 5.0 V8 411. But have not idea the source.

@Paulster2 Nope, Transmission is out of something else entirely. Not even sure what yet. Whatever my junk yard guy finds me.

comment Six to Eight Engine Swap 1968 Mustang, what parts are required
@Paulster2 will be putting an AOD not electronic in. Engine is out of 86 Mustang. You have documentation on the engine weight? Two friends arguing about it. Also are the springs different from a 68 with L6 vs 302?
