If there was any kind of wear issue, I'd expect to see Fe a lot higher than 11ppm after 9k miles. Those engines are as bulletproof as it gets IMO. Thanks for posting.

When the belts fail they usually strip out the nubs at the crank pulley. Really can't see any wear to speak of with a visual.

A locked center 4wd is fine in snow, provided you wait to engage it until you need it. In a couple inches of light snow, given good tires, you'll be better off in 2wd. You'll get some wheelspin at times, but it'll be better behaved. Once the snow

Sounds like a fluke failure of a non NGK manufactured part. They likely buy these parts by 10's of thousands and install them on their wires. Adding grease to the plug terminal to reduce friction won't aid the tension ring. It is still going to expan

A big issue with air impacts is air delivery. Ratings are done at gun psi (90 or 100 usually) and unlimited volume at that psi. No shop duplicates this so you generally won't get the numbers they advertise. A 3/8 air hose which most shops use for
