Re: Torque Wrench

I'm in the "Go cheap and take care of it" camp. Torque wrenches aren't rocket science. The HFT ones I have (1/4, 3/8, 1/2") have all cal'd good-enough for engines/accessories. Biggest thing for bolt patterns is repeatability - that all fasteners are torqued close to each other. They don't all have t...

On dirtmobiles, there's a check valve (usually just a wiggle-ball sorta deal) in the cap, if that sticks/gums up then the tank will create a vacuum and the bike stalls when it can't get fuel. Pop the gas cap, if you hear a suction sound it ...

Re: A New Low Point For Gender Identity

Male/Female are generally said with connectors with visible pins, that insert into the receptacle. Think connectors like a 120v wall plug, and most RF connectors. Plug/Socket are used when the pins slide against each other - HDMI, USB. Can't really gender the pins male/female, so manufacturers and e...

Re: New Ignition Wires?

The Hemi has coil-on-plug ignition. How would those work? I think those are for a totally different application. I have not heard of the wires wearing out on a Hemi. It isn’t like a distributor system where the wire carries the direct ignition load, in our trucks the wire carries the low voltage pu...
