Adjust headlight by Andy
My mechanic adjusted one of my headlights because it was out of alignment due to some body work to my right fender. However, only the up/down is adjustable. I wonder why the right/left is not adjustable? I seem to recall in the 70s where both adjustment could be made. Andy

Torque Wrench Safety Question by [email protected]
I recently bought a torque wrench - the modern shaft collar design, 20-150ft lb torque, and the appropriate size six point sockets for the lugnuts on mine and my wife's cars. I recently loosened and re-torqued my wife's wheel lugnuts to spec, or maybe 1lb over, but what was really scary was how...

hI aLL! what lateral g-force can old cars achieve? by longtrennguoi
A modern vanilla sedan can do 0.9 g, maybe more with good tyres. I saw a video on Youtube of some guy fitting a triangulated 4-link suspension to some chrome-bumper car, and managed to get 0.52 g on cornering, which seems rather poor. Must have had sh*t tyres. Sorry, I haven't been able to find it...

does anybody besides Audi use the trapezoidal rear suspension? by [email protected]
I stopped to help a little old lady with a flat tyre. She was driving an Audi, and I found the independent rear suspension to be quite interesting. Searching, I can only find SEAT (also part of VW) with it. But theirs (on FWD ****box) looks like a cheaper implementation of the Audi setup.

Roof problems on renault megane cabriolet by Karmann[_1_]
I have a 2002 megane cabriolet, had a flat battery on Monday and had to manually close it. Now the hatch on the boot won't open again electrically to be able to open the roof. Renault say once the manual strap is back in it should open. Any ideas anyone?

how to use this battery charger- BRADEX by [email protected]
The charger will show a very low rate on the meter. When it stop dropping for a couple of hours that is when you know the battery is fully charged. I have a 20 year old Bradex 4amp charger which I use on the low setting. It still charges the big battery on a 2,2 crd Pt Cruiser very well but...

Motor is wheezing, as if it's breathing - why? by Arlen Holder[_4_]
It's a Honda lawnmower I'm asking about, which is about 10 years old, but which runs fine most of the time. I replaced the plug, ran a tank of fresh gas, and cleaned the filter, and yet, it "wheezes" like it's breathing, normal rpm, and then slower rpm and then normal rpm and then slower rpm and...

What exactly does cold pressure mean? by Tom Adams
I help maintain a Ford E350 used for a vanpool. The door panel spec says that the rear tires require 80 psi. The sidewall specs on the rear tires say that the maximum pressure is 80 psi. So, what does cold pressure mean exactly? If I check the tires on a cold morning (say 35 degrees) I will end...

69 Manx sputtering by [email protected]
I have a 69 Manx with a fresh 1915cc that I built last year. So when the engine was built I used an empi progressive carb and I can’t install the heat risers because my exhaust doesn’t have the port for them. I believe that my sputter may be caused by condensation building up. How can I get...

Strangest Tire Question EVERRR... by [email protected]
Strangest Tire Question EVERRR... Has anyone ever calculated or estimated the area, in square inches/square cm, of the *surface of the inside* of a tire? Does at least an average exist out there, for broad categories: passenger car, SUV-light truck, and commercial truck? Just curious, Thanks!

What size nut goes onto a typical US passenger tire Schrader valve? by Leon Schneider
What size nut goes onto a typical US passenger tire Schrader valve? To insert the tire valve, I know there is a ridiculously cheap cross-type valve tool where you thread it on the outside of the tire valve to pull the tire valve through the hole in the wheel rim, but for emergency use I just...
