I recently asked a similiar question; looking for differential fill for our GS350 F Sport with 60K miles. Gonna use Red Line 75w85 partially because that is the Toyota viscosity and it got strong recommendations. I believe any quality gear oil would be fine; the difference between 75w85 and 75w90 has to be minimal at best.
You can gain tons of storage if you have the design include "attic trusses" , the roof line stays the same but instead of the criss crossing traditional trusses, your builder/supplier alter the trusses so that a full length square area is in the final design. When we added a 24'x36' addition that was for a 10'x 24' entry then a 26'x24' attached garage with a 12'x36' screen porch on the backside, all under one roof. The entry is insulated and has a pull down ladder that goes up into the 'attic' of the garage part, giving us nearly 16'36' wide open storage or future living space. The truss company increases the bottom truss beam in height since it will be considered 'load bearing' and the configuration of the webbing of the trusses is designed for our winter snow loads. The additional cost to us for going this route was around $2,000 but it gives us so much future space at minimal cost. Grand kids love playing up there too. Here are 2 pics of what they look like. Good luck.
I know this is likely a long shot given it is so out of season, but wondering if anyone has seen any good push mower sales for Black Friday? Only thing I have really seen is the sears promotion - spend $250 get $250 in points over 10 weeks. Not exactly thrilled about needing to burn points every week.
I am thinking about my next car. My winter beater/DD is a 1999 Toyota Solara. It has 205k miles. I am kinda just waiting for the thing to explode. The transmission has grinding gears, and there are some other issues with it. The engine was well taken care of, and it has been reliable for the last 3 years.
I am thinking of replacing it with mustang as my DD. The most I have ever spent on a car is $2700. I am thinking of getting a 4th generation mustang GT. I want one for the fun of a V8. Strangely, the Solara got me interested in larger engines because it has the V6. I love the V6, and want to try a V8. My budget will probably not exceed $6k. What do you guys think? A 2003 GT any good? Are they somewhat reliable and fun to drive? Alternatives? This car will be my DD.
He had a good run. These personalities tend to think themselves above the law, at a level that allows them to do as they see fit. He was probably used to this approach with the running of the company and thought this would be applicable to all his other affairs.
Local pepboys (yes they were the cheapest) said they couldn't get anymore this year (lie?). So I went with Falken EuroWinter for my wife's car. i'm sure we could've gotten another season out of the continentals, but not in deep snow. Better safe than sorry.
I did have the usual Oil Filter housing leak during the last OCI

The OFHG leak continues to this day.
Over the many years, other car brands have fixed issues, given 3 years or so. BMW is supposed to be an expensive brand. One day BMW will realize it is important to not tick off the owners at trade-in time.
0w20 would be fine, but monitor consumption. Like stated before, Tecumsehs will throw a rod if they starve for oil. I've run 0w20, 0w30, 5w30, 0w40, 5w40, etc in them with out any issues. The key is keeping the oil full. On an older machine, it may consume a 0w20, and if your father doesn't check the oil that could end badly. Also, for what it's worth I notice almost no difference pulling one over with 0w20 vs. 10w40. They are a bit tougher to pull over than a Briggs or Honda.
folks still making cdma vs gsm comments are living in the past.. verizon's CDMA network only applies up to the 3G network. The 4G standard is GSM based. (you may have noticed that when 4G phones came out, verizon started using Sim Cards, something they had never done before)
the difference lies in what bands of 4G Spectrum the different carriers use.
your verizon phone may not have the right radios for the frequency bands other carriers use.
also, Verizon is phasing out their old non 4GLTE network. any phone that's Not LTE pretty much won't work after Fall of '19.(Canadian carriers discontinued their CDMA networks back in '16) Verizon has already stopped activating non-LTE Phones.
that's not to say they are discontinuing basic flip phones, you just need to get a new LTE model.
I stick with Verizon, mainly because they are the only ones with decent coverage in my area. a friend of mine moved to Columbus a year ago, and he and his hubby switched to T-Mobile.
when he comes back up here to visit, he essentially has no signal unless he's within a mile or so corridor along a 4 lane divided Highway....
I would first try taking the carb off and cleaning it. It sounds like it is running rich, and a passage could be plugged up in the carburetor. I've seen this more than once on a brand new machine.
If that doesn't work, you can often find brand new carbs for under $20 on ebay for those engines.
Also, try swapping the plug with an NGK BP5ES spark plug. Whenever I repower something with a Chinese Honda clone, I swap out the plug with one of these and it usually runs slightly better than the no-name plug that is in there.
You know whats funny? My wifes Audi and my VW were assembled in Germany and have a lot of Bosch parts on them, but they came with NGK spark plugs from the factory.
That's because when NGK won the last contract VAG was soliciting for spark plugs.
my 08 Passat 2.0T came with Bosch plugs, but in 2010, NGK got the VAG contract, and replaced the Bosch plugs with NGK plugs.
My 08 Passat also had random Denso parts also.
on my current Tiguan, I ran the BKR7EIX, then Denso IK22, and now on order Denso VK22 (from the UK). If only Denso made the twin-tip in IK22 configuration.
I had the Bosch Platinum +4 back when I had a 88.5 Camry V6, since the rear bank was a PITA to get to, so longer lasting plugs was a good thing. Back in the day, Bosch also bragged about the Platinums were not merely just tipped, but the entire center electrode core was platinum alloy.
Also interesting, that Audi ran Bosch dual ground plugs before, BKR6EKUB
