flushing the AC system on a GTC

I was thinking that flushing the system when I replace the drier and compressor/clutch might be a good idea. The expansion valve and the evaporator are under the dash and obviously not easy to access. Can I flush them using the existing hoses that live in the engine bay? Apparently this can easily b...

Re: Painting a V12 engine

Do most folks spray on a coat of clear before putting her back? I tried some gloss (Seymour clear engine paint) on some small pieces, but I thought it was too glossy (Believe me, i'm no expert). Is there a better rattle can product? (The SEM hot rod clear looked, at first glance, to require a paint ...

Re: Cork Adams / Precision Wire Wheels

I too, have had great success with Dayton. They did the Borranis on my Ghibli and I thought the quality was excellent, pretty reasonable turnaround (not great), and fairly priced. steve

Re: Tom's 250 Engine...compression v. leak down

Tom....shhhh! Don't tell anyone about the incredible similarities in Dx and treatment. And, in medicine, we're well into fabricating parts and they too, are expensive! Systems that often overlap and confuse, cranky customers/patients, "rules and laws" of science and sometimes, unexpected c...

Tom's 250 Engine...compression v. leak down

First of all, rocker stand nuts, tho' missing, are highly overrated! Seriously, could you have skipped putting in the starter, and, since the harmonic balancer and crank bolt were right there, why wouldn't a leak down test, in lieu of the compression test, been better and faster? I'm trying to under...
