I don't know much about servos, but that red yo-yo looks like an antique.

yeah, I wrote to the company that sold me that on Amazon, I like to do that as a courtesy before leaving negative feedback, and they wrote back and said yes it is new and that they were sorry about the poor quality and that they will talk to their "REBUILD" tech to have him do a better job

EXCUSE ME? rebuilt is not brand new, I did not want a rebuilt part! wth

Re: Restoring Rusty

Why do you beat yourself up by ordering from Amazon. I like my parts from a tranny shop or engine shop. I,m sure you have your reason,s but I got tired of that game. Getting old so don,t like to do it more than once but that doesn,t work sometimes either .

Wow. A response like that basically writes the review for you. And for the post above, while I understand it, there are many legitimate companies that choose to use Amazon or ebay as their vehicle for online sales. Unfortunately, sometimes it's hard to tell them from people like this outfit until you get the part. Good luck man.

Re: Restoring Rusty

so the truck sat in the garage for 2 or 3 weeks while I slayed it in my '54 and painted our perfectly fine oak kitchen cabinets... white! [pronounced: no time to work on the truck(s)]

and the texter side front tire went pretty much all the way flat... on the bottom

I took it off rolled it around and usually I can spot a nail or a screw somewheres in the tread section right quick, but nothing this time, checked the valve and it was tight

so after coating it in Windex and no bubbles, I took it to our vegan environmentally friendly fluid dynamics station, and still couldn't see any bubbles, what gives?

is my Ex messing with me again !!! ha ha

Cap on or off when verified?

I've had more than one that when the cap was tightened all the way tight, it would inexplicably slightly compress the stem allowing air to purge. Different caps solved the issue. If you can't determine anything else, it might be worth dbl checking.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.
