    What are you doing today?

    If you had to "Get Physical" when you were attempting to unwind the Fitting and perhaps 'Pounded" with anything on the Top of the HWH... Some Mild Steel Rust and micro-flakes of Calcium Carbonate could have dislodged like a Cloud of Particles floating down and into the Filled Tank, staying in...

    NEED HELP Cylinder Head and timing chain headaches.

    I had the chance to Zoom in and peek down into the image of the Engine Head Bolt Hole you posted, but was unable to make 'Ass, Heads or Tails' out of what is going on down inside of that space: Is there any chance that you can take a few more close-up images with more clarity? And while you...

    NEED HELP Cylinder Head and timing chain headaches.

    Using the Proper M11 X 2.00 X 30mm Thread Line Dimensions inside of the Atlas Vortec LL8 4200 Engine is Absolutely Necessary. You can NOT Mix-N-Match the Thread Pitch from Coarse (2.00) to Fine (1.50). Putting in the Wrong Sized 'Serts' would cause the Time Sert System Repair to FAIL. *** If...

    What are you doing today?

    @Blckshdw... The Problem we're fighting against down here in Florida is that there is just Way TOO much natural Calcium Carbonate dissolved into our underground Fresh Water Aquifer.

    NEED HELP Cylinder Head and timing chain headaches.

    You do NOT need to Scrap the Engine Block if you use the TIME-SERT Repair System and a Threaded M11 X 2.00 X 30mm Steel Cylinder to Replace the Damaged Aluminum Hole inside of the Engine Block: View THIS Photo Album Linked below at my "Flickr-Bucket" to view EXACTLY how this can be done on the...
