  1. or wait for Tolsen to chime in i think his car is a zee box ...he will know the tricks if there is one
  2. we had the first decent snow yesterday...but most of it melted today i need to get my plow truck back home soon
  3. its good for reading and erasing codes in powert train ,air bag and some brake systems and it does keys probably a few other things i cant remember but i know for sure there was no clutch teach for a 2005 i also have the wow wurth snooper which is basically the same
  4. if it wants to crawl with actuator applied ...i would suspect something damaged inside the pressure plate
  5. the one i have does not ive just installed my actuators by hand with a bit of tension applied and it always worked just fine
  6. id park it...and spray the alternator with krown while its running ...then shut it down and bring the battery in the house maybe sprinkle some cayenne fine ground pepper inside if its in an area that might get mice filling the tank is also a great idea ...
  7. those tubes flex and are an integral part of the suspension
  8. for extra cooling i suppose seems kind of close to where right axle needs to be
  9. i like the panel colour but i dont like the wheel colour drivers rim appears to have some pothole damage but it might be an optical illusion ...7-8 o'clock position appears to be flatter
  10. id even put grease on the inside and just slide it on the rod..there should always be a bit of tension anyways.and it looks like it will slide on enough to keep itself just fine ...i dont think gluing will help anything
  11. any ep grease should be fine..personally id go with whatever thick stuff i had on hand
  12. yeah...at least drop the pan to check the oil sprocket maybe even put a pan with a drain
  13. id suspect a head gasket ..especially 2 cylinders side by side
  14. its risky id be spraying those glow plugs for days before trying to remove them mine were broken which is why i got the coupe so cheap..one was even drilled off center with an easy broke off in the hole ...lots of fun i suppose if someone had a known bad injector you could probably make something to do thru the injector hole instead edit :or use one of those rubber tipped push type compression testers in the injector hole lmao
  15. post #4 says 1.1k ohm is normal for these
  16. bad crank sensor will (most likely) never set a code the only way ive diagnosed them (on other cars) is checking for rpm signals with a scantool while cranking
  17. yesterday was a mix of rain sleet snow and hail
  18. is abs bleed even necessary? my first coupe sat for years with brake lines disconnected...the whole system was empty...i remember just bleeding it the normal old fashioned way with zero problems
  19. ive only used the delphi im fairly certain i seen a foxwell model that said it did smart keys
  20. james the best best spammer maybe
  21. id expect the key to shear off the impeller pulley if the gears dont actually break
  22. no shear pins on that model seems odd..i think id prefer shear pins ..even though it says hardened gears... ive pulled chunks of 2x4 out of peoples snowblowers..phone books....dog leashes.......tire chains....i cant imagine how no shear pins could handle that
  23. these are the best ive owned (and ive owned/sold hundreds of blowers) this one is rough shape ...if you find one that was cared for they are gold 1989/1990 and maybe 1991 era....the 10/28 and 12/33 are great...the 8/26 not so much (smaller slower impeller on the 8) impeller is NLA so its always good to check it but even if damaged they can be fixed and reinforced they were branded as mastercraft but occasionally i come across some mtd branded and some columbia branded models...the handlebars/controls are different though..i prefer the mastercraft variation that the red ones have
  24. personally i prefer older ones than what i see for sale lately... my favourites are the red mastercraft ones from 1989-1990 made by mtd with 16 inch impellers..they are hard to find in good shape though,,,people that still have them kept them for a reason second choice would be a good ariens from around 2000.2005 ...or a john deere from same era with a D in the model which is basically a green branded ariens (has to have the D at the end of model...the other ones are crap made by mtd and murray/briggs) i gave up getting cold wet and sweaty though ...quite a while back i bought a western snowplow for truck
  25. toro is notorious for their impeller design it is very good...and rarely ever clogs
