Re: Cheap GoPro

Ken,

Re: Cheap GoPro

Ken,

What I'd really like to know is how that hat stays on?

The babies haven’t yet developed their adjustable bills. They will though, before leaving the mechanic’s wire nest and begin migrating to a tool box!

Re: Motor saga

Ken, Sounds like progress in the correct direction! As to gaskets, make sure the new ones are not like the old Fel-Pro Print-O-Seals that didn't have any steel shim core, so after a few dozen heat cycles they would creep outward and fail. We ended up calling them Fail-Pro Print-O-Leaks. Here's an ex...
