re: Any plumbers on the OT? Need some advice. - AndyCBR
I would resolder with copper. I don't think tiny faucet supply tubes will get you the flow rate you want to fill that tub without waiting an hour. Find a buddy who has a handle on it. 90% of it is fitting and cleaning/fluxing the joints inside and out and not overheating the joint. My $.02...

re: OT mechanics: correlation between weak battery and engine performance paramaters - AndyCBR
It would be nice to know what year vehicle you are talking about and what "high mileage" is. But yes, low voltage or voltage drop under load can cause a myriad of problems with modern vehicles. Also, it may be a lambda sensor on its way out. IE the battery was only a little bit out of voltage...

re: Long-term reliability of turbo cars/trucks? - AndyCBR
I certainly wouldn't over the 5.0. It's a more complicated system and more moving parts, thus more to go wrong. Now I am sure there are people out there with 75k on their truck and say they "have no problems". However, I bet that number gets dramatically less when the mileage gets over 100k or...

re: Do you believe Trump that 3 to 5 million illegals voted for Clinton? - AndyCBR
