"If they changed your oil pump gears and removed the front cover to accomplish this, the fuel pump had to be removed in the process anyway so them charging you $250 labor for the fuel pump looks like double dipping to me."

Brighter Headlights. What to install that won't draw too much current.

Posted by Norman Silverman on December 15, 2018 at 9:07pm 7 Comments

My car still has its "T-3"headlamps and they shed poor, yellow-tinted light. I'd like to replace them with something that most folks on this web site use, that would shed good light and don't heat up the wiring with too many amps. 

Survey says?

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.
