Lol yea I have ultras in my lows and fogs. My brother said he was pretty much blinded when trying to guide me into the shop the other night (I was pulling in over a semi pit because that was the only shop space open at the time lol)

i hate ice, and trucks. i was driving the plow truck back one time and it was icy, i was the one doing 180'* on the highway. at least i kept it out of the ditch. i even had a service box on it full of tools and crap. i dont know why people always want to drive trucks

squirters only cover the lean period from when you mash the gas till the engine builds a little rpm and you are on the mains. when does it smoke? how do the plugs look?

I replaced the windshield washer line on the Bonneville from the washer bottle up to the cowl. Original was a thin wall hard plastic tube that was brittle and I had patched it 4 or 5 times over the last few years. If you ever have to work on the washer bottle, pull the front right tire, remove the forward half of the plastic fender liner, and the washer bottle is right there. Very easy to access the line, pump, level sensor, and electrical connector.

Of course your going to have vapor in your tank....of all my years of diagnostics, I have never EVER heard of using Seafoam to clear a diagnostic code. Whoever suggested to USE Seafoam to clear an Evap Emission code should be take out to a field and....I'll think of something.

Well at least Seafoam is a good product and will help clean the injectors and such. Not a complete waste I guess
