    I'd think about dropping a BB Chevy in there, probably a 454.

    I had a pair of '96 900Zxi(s) that I bought in 2004 for 4k total including the trailer. Those things were a blast and very low maintenance too. In the 8 years I had them, I only had to rebuild the...

    That sounds like a REALLY good idea! How/where do you secure the second (unused) belt so that it doesn't get next to anything that's spinning?

    The thing you're holding in your hand is attached to the bottom of the air box (don't know it's official name) and is there so you can see if you have oil in the air box. It's pretty hard to see if...

    How do you check that? What is the result if it's not venting? I'm assuming that to check the catch can, you just take it off and see if there's any oil in it? How much oil in the catch can would be...

    Interesting. My "issue" couple years back was just #4 cylinder, but results are the same, fried piston/melted head. So ss are you saying that the ecu on these engines doesn't send the same signals to...

    You have to take out motor mount bolts/slide engine forward a couple inches to get belt to go between the now separated coupler. Seems crazy but that's how it's done.

    Me too, I think it would all come out of there eventually (unless there is so much that pump cavitates/won't go anywhere, like with a big ball of seaweed).

    Spark plugs would be first place I'd look. Every time mine have started running rough, new/cleaned spark plugs fixed it (except for the time there was crud in the gas tank).

    Well I don't know what to say; I took my time and installed the piston rings exactly as the manual states. I even bought a piston ring filer/grinder to get the gap down to the exact measurement (on...

    I can see that. So how do you get salt away into the flush? Do they make a gizmo that goes on the end of garden hose like an insecticide applicator?
