Tell me about it.... I lost over 15+ years of links.

I'm not going through the hassle of transferring and fixing links, so unless PB reconsiders and starts hosting again, I'm considering my past and current threads dead. I probably won't be posting anything other than text.

I need to start pulling my pics from their site, in case they go belly up.

Flickr is a good alternative for photo hosting for the future. I never understood why people used Photobucket to begin with.

This came in today. Lower CCV hose. What a PITA to install. Took about an hour with extra hands to install. I would rather have a tooth pulled then to got through that again.

If you feel that way about that tube don't ever try doing a transmission mount on these cars!

I've gotten bad tubes with wrong bends... they would never have fit.

A decent one should take about 15-20 min start to finish.

the last tube i got, i forgot from where by now, was a real pita to get in right. i start 1 bolt, and try to get the other started, can be a chore esp. with engine/road grease/gunk right there. tried not to clean area too much, so as not to disturb gunk in area. just got the 'lip' as good as i could.

If the bends were wrong and you forced it on with preload, it'll fail pretty quickly. I'd have returned it and got another.... that's what I did.

Tackled the Leaking IP today.


Stripped the lower shallow bolt...


Had to remove the line fitting.


That is when i found that one of them didn't have a copper washer in it. Guess that's where the leak was coming from.
