Picked up some New parts

In Stock: 58
Piston Return Spring

KaleCoAuto has produced the highest quality piston return spring to date! High temperance chromed metal resists temperatures up to 300'f. KaleCoAuto piston return springs FORCE the pistons back into the motor, no longer relying on gravity! This effectively increases your revs, horsepower, and peak torque! You must buy one return spring per piston. Rotary engines require install of pistons for full compatibility. One per piston. Please specify if you are using a boxer motor!
Model:
Price: $54.99
Weight: 0lbs

Heavy Duty Clutch Belt
$29.99
In Stock: 555
A long time ago when the transmission began to slip, you'd know it was time for a rebuild. But! Rebuilds are costly, and half the time, not neccesary. What you may be experiencing is clutch-belt failure! KaleCoAuto heavy duty kevlar belts are made with the quality you can expect from KaleCoAuto. Please specify diameter and width of belt when ordering.

Thanks for reminding me of that site. I had it saved a while back but lost it. I'm gonna use this to expose one of my supervisors complete lack of mechanical aptitude.

Tried to convince a guy with a YJ to trade for it. Didn't succeed.

In other news, I got a renewal of registration notice for my Pathfinder. Which I sold 4 months ago. Anyone thinking what I'm thinking?

Got the new corner lights. Definitely Chinese knock offs but hopefully they'll work fine and last.

Not today but yesterday I dropped my gas tank because it was leaking. PO did such a hack job. Wires on harness going to the fuel pump were rigged like 5 year old did it. So fixed that. Which was the reason my fuel gauge was not working. then saw the new fuel pump the PO put in, he didn't have it seated correctly, hence the leaking. So got it all fixed up. Only pic I have as proof it happened.

I'm sitting where the gas tank would be fixing the wires.

I've had success with the Rockauto signal markers after the front right side of my Jeep decided to tangle with the boss' left rear fender

I don't like their headlight housings though.
