Spiders love to get high on gas. They make their nests in venturi tubes in gas appliances, and they get aggressive when you try to clean them out!

Oregon is the only aftermarket belt I've tried. Normally just go with OEM replacements. My take on belts is, they're ALL good. What makes them fail is sheaves out of alignment, bent sheaves, tensioner not right or idlers not right. 'Course tryin

Search around here for underbody rust protection and rust proofing; LOTS of discussion. I think you have Crown or a similar line available in your area, but if not check out Fluid Film and Amsoil HDMP for a DIY application.

I just bought a 1996 Accord 4 cyl auto with 216k for $700. The previous owner let the timing belt break, but it only came out of that issue with a slightly bent valve. She does not idle, but just off idle she takes right off. That is why you have
