  1. I have opened a help desk ticket for you in regards to the issue you have.
  2. I've been away from the forum for ten years and it sure looks like facebook has taken a toll on the activity.
  3. Yes, the picture that you posted is normal.
  4. I agree with that welding would be the best fix. But I have seen where the transmission mount bolts to the aluminum case on a Chrysler Sebring broken completely off and a friend of mine rather than buy a used transmission repaired it with Belzona. He sold the car and a couple of months later it was hit side impact on left front pretty good lick hood, fender, bumper, reinforcement, core support etc. But the Transmission mount was solid as ever. Belzona is really good stuff and small package two parts will run about $60.00. Read about it here.
  5. As we are celebrating the Blessing of this time when Jesus gave up his blood so our sins may be forgiven may we all be mindful to share our blessings. And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me. Mother Teresa said that Jesus comes to us in person who is hungry, is naked, even in the alcoholic or prostitute. In all who are in need. We are all one Mystical Body of Christ.
  6. See what you think of this one. Ok I forgot the Bear. Now everyones eyes fixed (more or less) http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/2517/me...miccore28hj.jpg
  7. Maybe she's in deepest Africa searching for the lost Franglais. Luckily they have Tobias to protect them from the Elephants. And I hope they both had the best of Birthdays.
  8. My favorite: Wrap gifts in Duct Tape for the gift that says, “Open me... eventually.”
  9. I regret to point out that after reading the thread you were the first to suggest that Bush was responsible.. Although now that you brought it up Kyoto Accord while supported by the previous administration was not signed by the current administration which belongs to the party that has traditionally been supported by big business.
  10. Gosh Thanks folks. My Brother reminded me that 51 was a prime number so I should be in my prime. Although I think back to people saying "If I knew I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself. Its great having a home and extended family of 25,000 here at the Pit.
  11. What do you mean by floor scraper. Does it look like a hoe straightened out. That and a grinder to keep it sharp.
  12. Try this Bench and see how it stacks up.
  13. Buy one of these If they steal it they can't hide it and theres not much around that could hit you in it.
  14. Kings Park. Haven't seen it since 1962 though.
  15. Someones been watching the old Jimmy Stewart movie "Harvey" it sounds like.
  16. Board listed here. Not ready to ship though.
  17. 1174 is the best of the lot.

    If it don't put you in gridlock getting there might try to go to Katy more distance the better. Shelters are full here now and after seeing this and living in a moble home trying to decide what to do with myself and my 83 year old mother. Evacuees from coast have filled everything up to Oklahoma and gas has become a hit or miss deal. May try to go west tomorrow depending if track moves more east or not. (wrings hands, sweats)
  19. Sorry my bad assumption on function. So by having the exhaust gas added to the mix although hot will not contribute to the next combustion lowering cylinder temps but not producing as much power as if the EGR valve was closed. And I guess EGR mainly opens at higher RPMs because I know if you put your fingers on the diaphram and open it at idle it will drop RPMs or die. Thanks for the info dd. Learned something today.
  20. Yep thats the Exhaust Gas Recirculating Valve. Reduces emission by burning part of exhaust gas a second time. I suppose its the top piece with the vacuum line on it that is what is shaking and not the lower piece that mounts to exhaust manifold? You could try taking the vacuum line off and plugging it to see if that makes the idle steady.

    Talk to your neighbors my main concern there would be heavy rain - flash flooding on Barton and some of the other creeks. Find a good high spot if your not on one.
  22. I don't like rating one against the other but as they say being a bit long in the tooth , here are some memorable bands I was lucky enough to see. Blue Oyster Cult in 74 in Germany new band named Queen opened for them. John Kay (Steppenwolf) about 82 small club but he was Steppenwolf. Asia, always was a sucker for big full sound. Electric Light Orchestra on The Third Day Tour - Eldorado, better than later more popular work. Emerson, Lake & Palmer, what a show. Fleetwood Mac. Foreigner. ZZ Top. Guess Who. RUSH. Styx Paradise Theater Tour, gave you chills to see. Van Halen with David Lee Roth of course it wasn't really Van Halen without him. The Who, never saw Keith Moon RIP. Santana, what can you say a legend. REO Speedwagon, always good. I'm sure I failed to mention some but consider the times.
  23. Check for broken vacuum hoses especially the small ones, that could cause the idle problem. A lot of black in the throttle body is probably accumulated oil as PCV hose runs to the throttle body a 3/8 hose or so. This would be normal considering the age of the car. And like all4sma said change plugs and wires and check rotor and cap if it has one.
  24. Well I have to say the pardon was really the only option. The investigation, hearings and all had gone on too long and the country needed to focus on running the goverment and not trying to send a President to Jail what good would that have done. He was already as broken as a man can get. And further action would have stolen focus from important matters for years.
