No brake or signal on driver side taillight

After two jeeps broke down on me, I had to go back to driving my truck, and since it had sat up a while, the tags went out. I went to get it inspected last week and noticed the headlights wouldn't...

Today I'm going to see about getting a starter for my truck. My current one is burned out, thanks to advanced timing (who'd have guessed a stock-compression 302 could do it). If all goes as planned I...

Well, I installed six brand new spark plugs (NGK V-Power) and put in about 5-6 dollars of fresh 93 octane gas. It runs better, but it still has a bad hesitation if I blip the throttle at first...

I think your hitmul has 404'd, sir.


I'll look into it. Not sure how it would work though, since it runs about 40psi fuel pressure, and I doubt I can squeeze the bottle hard enough to maintain...

How to clean fuel injectors?

I figured I'd ask you guys this question first before hitting up the later model forums. It's not about my truck, but fuel injection in general.

Just this morning, I drained about 20 gallons of...

I think it was just too much power for a stock design. DSII never put out that kind of juice. I never had any wear problems like this with the stock ignition. I'm not bothered by having to replace...

Well after lots of experimenting (and realizing that without the vac advance physically connected to the pickup assembly, my timing goes nuts), I FINALLY got the timing about where it needs to be. I...
