i'd imagine it's not like amsterdam where you don't need to speak clutch to get by.
Fickset!
If someone does not speak clutch, then they wonder why there are two brake pedals.

Re: My 2006 5 speed Subaru impreza

Check the level of the trans fluid. If low, top it up and see what happens to the noise. If not low and the noise does not worsen maybe it is okay to just keep driving until or if it finally gives out or a new clutch is needed. I twice had throwout bearings come apart on me and there was no noise, n...

Re: S10 was improved by accident today

Well I don't think an accident is going to fix this. I had the tailgate down today and when i went to put it up the hinge mount on the right side was gone from rust. I managed to close it and it is held by the two latches at the top, but working it is going to be the problem. Any ideas? Leave it la...

Re: Mercedes to Shun the Amish

I doubt he'd buy just a door if he came there looking for a slushbox car to buy, but give it a try and let us know how it goes. https://usautomi.com/images/BlackFridaySale3.jpg What do I know? This guy seems happy to get a door and a few other parts. I have seen people that happy just pulling stuff...

Re: Mercedes to Shun the Amish

Gimme a car company that ONLY makes manual transmission cars. If I had Bill Gates' money I would do that with it instead of whatever philanthropic stuff he does. Then if anyone wants an automatic at my car dealer, I'll show them the door. :lol: Recently read about a racer who messed his arm up so he...

Speakin' of Column-Shift Amish Transmissions..... When I was in Japan 2005-ish, the Taxis were 4-on-the-tree. https://www.autoweek.com/car-life/classic-cars/a1882751/new-detroit-trucks-3-tree-column-shift-manuals-1986-yes/ Nice!

Re: MISC: What's on your Mind?

Six months into this and still don't know anybody who has Covid. I know at least one who had it bad back in the early spring and then recovered. People question him when he downtalks COVID, masks etc. but he feels that it is blown out of proportion despite him having gone through it. Have heard of ...

BLACK SABATH'S PARANOID ALBUM WAS RELEASED FIDDY YEARS AGO
Used to hear that album a lot in high school. It was still fairly new back then.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

With I-75 undergoing a major reconstruction project in the area between my home and my place of employment, and many of the roads crossing under the freeway experiencing sporadic closures due to freeway overpass construction, it sometimes gets to the point that I have to check with Google Maps on h...

Re: Tire Rotation

Good info. Thanks. As for the front right wearing harder than the front left, I just have to stop mashing the pedal so hard on right turns!

Tire Rotation

My front tires are heavily worn in 10,000 miles to 6mm left and 5 mm right, whereas the back tires are 20,000 miles and have 7mm each. So I conclude that front-wheel-drive eats front tires. The second thing, which is puzzling me, is that the front right tire is more heavily worn (5mm vs 6mm front le...

Re: My 'Runner

Tell us you still have the commemorative Tin Cup as a keepsake. Nope, not even a lousy t-shirt saying "I survived Tin Cup Pass." But I could make a whole thread and fill it with stories of how I abused that 77 F100! It was great for curb hopping (tall curbs) with the forged radius rods. I no more t...
