      I swear by ACDelco pads and rotors, which are supposedly Raybestos. Another that is very favoured is Adaptive One from Napa.

      Well I never got to sledding on the weekend. Nasty wind blew in and I spent some hours clearing our laneway and then took the skid steer to a friend's to help clear them out. Their old 100 horse...

      Took my new computer apart... AGAIN! I am only on the 6th warranty swap on this motherboard. Took apart the open loop video card, and cleaned it out as well.

      We cleaned out part of the basement last night. I shoved a bunch of recyclables and donations in the back of the van, today we'll drop the stuff off. Ugh, it is amazing the crap you collect after...

      6000 miles into owning this beast. I actually love to drive it.. Except my head rubs on the headliner because of the sunroof bump, which i dont have this issue in the XL/XUV because the roof is...

      So got that last A-arm out after the cutoff wheel cut through the offending bolt. Then I finally cleaned out my long neglected parts washer, but not after I made a mess of trying to drain it out...

      Over the weekend relocated a light fixture outlet box in the stairwell for a fancy new drop down light. I was able to access the box from the attic crawl space. I drove a screwdriver through the...

      Did the long awaited oil change in the Tb. 270,000km on the clock and it was last changed April 2020. Broke my filter cap wrench as the extension spun in the slot. Broke out the old strap wrench...

      Earlier this year I bought a bumper cover at the local automotive recycling facility. I sanded all the gloss off of it, used some plastic adhesion promoter spray paint, and painted it with...

      Probably a pick-a-part yard is the best place for the element. The passenger side is usually still good. They always break under the thigh area where it passes under a metal retaining rod so...

      Matt reacted to Mooseman's post in the thread Intermittent horn with Like Like.
      Couple of things to check. the fuse and relay. Check the power there. Try jumping the relay to see if the horn itself is good. Check if you're getting the signal from the switch at the relay...

      It was a nice day today, got up to about 50F, so I assembled the gutter cleaner I use with my leaf blower and cleaned the gutters on the house. A few days ago I noticed a couple spots on the...

      Just finished my water pump today, and learned some interesting lessons. It was a 45-minute job ... that took me two days actually. (Not too bad for me.) Subtract going to Home Depot for chain, a...

      This week the good old prairie winter arrived. -20 highs with 30 lows. This weekend it warms up and then thendeep freeze shows up again but worse. So today we went to Prince Albert, known as...

      Worked on my sled today as I got the new Oilite bushings. However, rust reared its ugly head. One suspension bolt I was barely able to get out however the other is literally rust welded to the...

      Sparky, I used to use PB Blaster, but have lately been using Free All for a penetrating oil. I find it works a lot better than PB Blaster. If you can find it in your area (I buy it at AutoZone) it...

      Matt reacted to Sparky's post in the thread What are you doing today? [Part II] with Sad Sad.
      Thanks for the offer, but I have access to the service manuals. It literally says "remove lower bolt." Basically, it comes down to a case of the bolt rusted to the bushing sleeve, and it needs...

      No go on the impact, couldn't get the clearance. Clearly they designed this rear suspension without that in mind. So, I torched the bolt for a bit, propped my feet against against the vehicle...

      Likely the bolt is rusted to the strut bushing's sleeve. If I have to cut it off, replacement bolts are $15 each at the dealer, but the nut is welded onto the control arm and is smooth. I guess a...

      I did once a long long long time ago. The manual said that the crush sleeve needs to be repalced. Didn't have a torque wrench to install a new crush sleeve so I marked the pinion to the yoke to...
