My pistons were slightly dirty. Out came the Mopar Combustion Chamber Cleaner!

Sharka needs a head gasket. A normal person wouldn’t be happy about this. Me? I’m ecstatic!

So there I was, sitting at a traffic light on the quiet side of an intersection. I’d just had dinner with my buddy Stoly (not at Taco Bell, at a much nicer nearby tavern) and was ready to go home and kick back. And…. THUD.
In hopes of adding a little security to my Roadster, I’ve added a Works Bell quick release. And I took a whole ton of photos of it!

I’ve not done a Linux post in a while. I thought that Firefox 4 deserved it.
Modern Ubuntu releases have made this whole process incredibly easy.
Got bubbles in your coolant system? You need this. This awesomely-huge funnel is designed to help you burp your radiator without fluid overflowing everywhere.
March 14th, 2011 — Sharka pix
After a year and a very long winter, I finally took Sharka’s hardtop off.
This is one of those items that’s been on my to-do list for quite a few years – swapping out Sharka’s stock tie rod ends for the 93 LE / 94 R-package ends. They help address the bump steer issues on a lowered car and it’s one part of a Miata that I’ve never replaced. That second reason alone is enough to justify the job.
Sharka gets a new Classic Instruments boost gauge to replace a tired “modern” one. The result is this post and far too many pix of a single gauge.

The newest member of the revlimiter.net fleet: a pewter MK1 MR2. A very very small MR2. Smaller than a US quarter. Check it out!
