    I've had enough of this crap.

    We've tried to give everyone the benefit of the doubt here, but some people just don't listen. Read this guy's posts and convince us why we should not ban him.

    Compression test for 300Tdi

    Can someone give me a run-down of doing a compression test on a 300Tdi? I assume that I would need to disconnect the fuel cut-off solenoid and pull the glow plugs but that's about all I know. What's the right tool and adapter? What's the pressure numbers for good/bad? Thanks,

    Fumoto and Femco valves

    Has anybody ever installed a Fumoto or Femco valve on their truck’s oil pan? I ordered one for my diesel Ram truck and was thinking about getting one for my 110. They sure seem like they would make oil changes easier and cleaner. I’m not sure about the size/thread of the 300Tdi drain plug...

    Where do you live?

    I am looking at locations and trying to figure out where to put the new NAS-ROW servers. I want to get an idea where our regulars live, generally speaking. Unfortunately, I ran out of options on the poll, so there is no EMEA, LATAM, or APAC choices. More than likely, I will try to get space...

    NAS-ROW Update

    Hi Everybody, Our cloud provider has notified me that they will be decommissioning the area of the data center where our servers currently live. We don’t have to move the servers immediately but much like motors, servers age and eventually need to be rebuilt or replaced. I’m going to take...

    Great long-form essays

    I love a really good story. Particularly, I love the long-form nonfiction essay, the kind of tale that's long enough to spend an evening reading in bed, but not so long that you put it down and lose interest to the inevitable distraction. I read one tonight that I want to share, plus another...

    Traxxas TRX-4 R/C Crawler Kit

    Anybody have one? How do you like it? just ordered two kits for my boys, ages 5 and 8. I get the feeling that the five year-old will be a little young for this but I think that the eight year old will love it. There’s a pretty amazing selection of aftermarket parts for them. Of course, I...

    Brain Teaser

    This showed up on Slack at work and it was too good not to share. I saw some pretty amazing solutions to this in the responses. I think the best was around four steps. You wanted to split 300 grams salt into three 100g piles with only one balance scale, one 5g weight and one 30g weight. What...

    Best quality starter for 300Tdi?

    Who sells the best quality starter availabile for 300Tdi? I'm on my second starter in three years. This one was a Bosch model that I got from Robert Davis that was supposed to be pretty decent. Feels like the solenoid is sticking and sometimes I sounds like the teeth aren't catching, though I...
