re: Garage Door Opener Question - AndyCBR
Disconnect the drive system with the emergency handle and verify if the door can go up and down easily by hand first. The opener is designed to be an assist to the springs and the door must be in balance to begin with. IE it should raise and lower pretty easily by hand. If the door goes up and ...

re: Smoke smell removal in trucks - AndyCBR
Sorry man, no good answers. The smell is in all of the foam seating, fabric, the A/C evaporator, etc. Pulling all of the seats and carpets and having them steam cleaned may help but that is a lot of work also. The moment you sit in a smoker car you know it....

re: Riding Lawnmower - AndyCBR
Ariens/Gravely. Paying extra for a welded deck is worth it. I would think you could get into a "prosumer" one for $4k or so. I saw an Ariens with a welded deck and a Kawasaki motor at HD that looked nice. Sure Scag, Dixie Chopper, and others are better mowers but you don't need to spend ...

re: Do Vented Brake Rotors Make a Difference - AndyCBR
The pricing alone makes me wonder about the quality of the parts. I think quality solid rotors would be fine on your Tahoe. Spend the money on good pads. FWIW typically the factory pads have a good balance of life, quiet braking, and good wet performance. Unless the factory pads performed ...

re: A/C Question - AndyCBR
I have a 1 ton Daikin mini split for my insulated 2 car garage I use as a shop. It works well in that application. The multizone, cassette (that's the ceiling mounted) systems are very expensive and you are then dealing with multiple separate pieces of equipment to clean and maintain, 3-5 air ha...

re: 2016 F150 w/ 3.5 ecoboost help - AndyCBR
Timing chain and cam phaser issues are well known. There is no way a twin turbo v6 will be as reliable as the v8 over the long haul. There's just more parts in the system. Mileage gains are negligible. My money would be on the v8....

re: Best water sealer for new deck? (UPDATE FOR NEW QUESTION IN OP) - AndyCBR
Cabot semi-solid from Lowes is what I had good luck with on a playset we made 8 years ago. Needs a redcoat bad now but that is good performance in this climate. They have a wide variety of colors and some of the grain does show. May get s color that comes close to the pergola wood. The "soli...

re: del-ton echo 316H lite, $379.00 + shipping - AndyCBR
I don't see how you could build it much cheaper. Nobody seems to stock everything you need so once you piecemeal it together from 2 or 3 different parts houses you'd be up there. Nice rifle for the price....

re: The Columbia space shuttle disaster - AndyCBR
They weren't really sure any damage had taken place at launch. Even during the post crash testing it took several tries before they found the right combination of foam size and impact speed in mock up tests that showed the wing damage that had actually taken place. Columbia was a freak inciden...
