Hmmm, maybe of the Jeep. I wear black shirts when dealing with anything on or under her. Less laundry that way

Ok, I dont know if this has been thrown up yet, but what about the bonnet to carry your spare, a long long long time ago I did have a series 2 land rover with the spare on the bonnet. Although it wasnt 12.5 wide either.

Oh shut up, I just answered my question...........

Are you kidding me?! Here's mine from when I did an airbox swap last week. I think I win for who needs an engine cleaning more.

Yes, you did...but I won in the "Sarcasm" department.

I wasn't sure if your OCD was expressing an inner anger towards the miniscule layer of dust/grime that may (or may not) have been covering the engine bay.

Geeze....

The guys at the Dealership said the best way to clean the engine was to replace everything. Besides, you can't use Simple Green on muffler bearings.....

They wouldn't have lied to me, would they???

Very nice write up! I may or may not have just spent the last two work days ogling... your chicken sammich preferences. I like the clarity and prioritization of this thread. Kudos.

Ok, the Wasteland has now made the "Big Time". Due to the increased references to all things chicken, I know have a banner ad on top that is promoting the "Chicken Forum"!

I have that same banner now too, just shows how scary data mining and browser tracking is.

The government and subcontracted companies have many billions of dollars invested in huge secure buildings filled with nothing but hard drives to store information from the internet about people like you and I. I call them "cavernous dens of shame" just as a reference to how much porn ends up in there inadvertently.

Probably a dumb question but as an engineering student/intern I have long since gotten over the fear of asking any question I may have. How els ya gonna learn? When referring to dielectric grease and cleaning the engine, its meant to go inside the electrical connections, correct? Not just on the outside. Just wanting to make sure because my engine happens to be way overdue for this so I may attacke it very soon. Thank you.

Yep...it goes inside. Whenever I pull a connection apart, I dab some f****** dielectric grease in one (or both) sides of it and slide it back together. I've yet to have any issues from using it, and I can think of at least two times when I didn't use it, only to later wish I had. I don't put it on the outside of a connection at all.

I'm proud to be helping with that.
