What the heck are these things ??

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on What the heck are these things ??
I found them in my stash of parts. Over the years I have taken in collections of parts from various members of our local car club. Sometimes the parts are from cars I've never owned so the parts are not always familiar.
Do you know what these are ??

Ballast resistor troubles!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Ballast resistor troubles!
We have all heard or experienced some trouble with the Ballast Resistor in our cars, right?
Me too, just not that often.
A week or so ago, I was tinkering with the Charger trying to detect the source of a coolant leak. At some point, the car was misfiring at idle, getting worse under a load. I did the usual checks, wire connections secure, plug wires too. Cap and rotor looked good, air gap in distributor was within spec.

The trans acts strange to me though. It sometimes acts as...

Trying to pick a GOOD gas powered Post Hole digger.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Trying to pick a GOOD gas powered Post Hole digger.
I need to replace a few hundred feet of fence and that includes digging several new holes for the posts. I have rented them before, the "2 man Auger" and while they work well, I want to have one here for use whenever I get the motivation to do so.
There are all sorts for sale with a wide variety of prices. Most are brands that I have never heard of. I have a Honda mower, an Echo chain saw and weed eater because years of buying generics have often resulted in having to replace them too often....
