    Aiming the lights makes a whole lot of difference in what you can see. I've become a big fan of my Hoppy aimer.

    The MPM I have is only for cars, but I'm not surprised it was used on trucks. It doesn't make sense to have a ton of different designs for a plastic doo-dad that a screw pushes on.

    Where are you measuring a rich condition? Might be worth putting a voltmeter to the output of the O2 sensor to see what it has to say. If the O2 sensor says its flipping from rich to lean...

    there is a recall for bent rails?

    They're just steel tubing, if its not too awful you should be able to bend it back. I've tweaked them and then un-tweaked them in the past.

    it says 98-02 on the hoses, but I know people have bolted 80s hoses to the 98-02 calipers. Looks like the 98-02 hoses have a steel L section at the caliper end where the 95-97 ones do not. Possible...

    yep, thats them. I got out of the shared hosting support and was doing dedicated server setups before I left. I quit when they sent me a phone and basically said take phone calls or take a hike.

    He's in Texas, he had to leave the state to find out what rust looks like. Usually I end up removing those things with a punch and a BFH to drive them out. They rarely let go nicely.

    Fire is the best lubricant for exhaust bolts. Heat until bright red, they zip right off. Need an oxy-fuel torch for that, propane won't do it. Plumber's torch might but it will take longer.
