    I have a 2001 Silverado with the 5.3, 4x4 and it has an oil leak I can't ignore anymore. I'm not 100% sure it's the oil pan gasket but I'm willing to replace it to rule it out. I think I understand that the pan won't come off completely without removing the cradle. Can I remove the pan, rest it...

    Alright fellas, let's see what creative or neat little ideas and fittings you have come up with to make draining oil easier in your v-drives. I have a dooley BBC 14 quart pan with the 3/4" npt plug in the front (back of the motor) and a 1/2"-20 (pretty sure) on the side. Post some pics and...

    To bad they don't get it. Ron Pauls last speech. He was our last hope that I know of. Rep. Ron Paul, the iconic libertarian congressman from Texas, has delivered what will most likely be his final address to Congress. In a sprawling, 52-minute speech to the House chamber, Paul lambasted U.S...

    Bit the bullet and threw together a turbocharged LS with a little bit of spray... in the 3 stages neighbourhood. Found a wrecked pickup with a 5.3 that had about 230K on it.

    I have a 2004 496 HO with the easy water drain system. The sytem no longer works when you pump it full of air and now the engine is blowing water out of the drain system valves when I am under way. I mean alot of water. Enough to sink the boat if it went unnoticed.The problem does not exist as...

    Anyone familiar with this system on a 496 MAG/Bravo 1? I followed MC instructions and after about 90 minutes drained less than a quart of oil. Tried to improve the flow (venting the system) by pulling the dipstick and removing the oil filler cap. Didn't help. Could the be some kind of blockage...

    Last week I was on vacation. A guy staying next door took his boat to fill it with gas at the gas dock. He put in about $130 worth before he realized he was filling the fishing pole/rod holder.....BILDGE instead of the fuel tank. The filler is 6 inches from the rod holder. A really stupid...
