    It's kind of the same with regular insurance, isn't it? At least that's been my experience. I have a few cars insured through the Corvette Museum (none are Corvettes). They use American Modern to underwrite. Reviews are good but it's the claims process that counts and there is less published information about that on any insurer. Quotes were better than Hagerty, Grundy, State Farm, Progressive, and every other company I called. A daily driver on a separate policy is a requirement, as is locked storage. Mileage limits are common although some insurers let you dictate how many miles. Availability will also vary by state. I know people who have Hagerty and Progressive with no complaints.

    Nearly lost a plastic cap in my diff today.

    I was getting ready to put fresh oil in the front diff of the yoter using one of those Valvoline flexfill bags. I wanted to test my angle so I put the capped end into the hole. Pulled it out and the cap was gone. Fuck. Filled and emptied the diff with no luck. Put the passenger side up on ramps and tried again. All the oil drained and just as I was getting ready to start cussing again, the cap plopped out. Cost me a couple bags of gear oil, but thatís a lot cheaper than a tear down. Phew.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    Thanks for that. I love listening to i thermal combustion engine exhaust videos, especially when you get on it.

    Seriously. I do.

    In other news, my heated drivers seat seems to be working now... And all i did was clean the ground strap. Crazy.

    Anyone have experience with a valve adjustment on a Honda V6 ? My van has about 200k and starting to make some valve noise and I'm dreading the job. I haven't done a valve adjustment for about 35 years and nit willing to pay $8-900.

    Anybody pulled the turn signal relay switch on an Ď06 sienna or that vintage? Itís is a fucking awkward place, I canít get it to budge, and I canít figure out how itís plugged in. Do I pull down, toward driver side, toward passenger side or toward engine bay. Iím concerned about breaking plastic especially it Iím pushing or pulling hard the wrong way.

    Post CA snow dump, van was buried for 2 weeks, we let it mostly melt off. Apparently, hazard lights went on the fritz and killed the battery. Canít get them off to turn off. Thereís some water on the floor of the driver foot well, but itís totally dry around the relay area, so Iím hoping the relay failed and not due to corrosion or something else

    Thoughts and feelings?

    There is most likely a tab/tang that is holding the body in place to a bracket. Feel around the hidden side, try to push on it with a hook tool or a small straight blade screw driver. If you look at the one he pulled in this video out you can see where it mounts, that is where the release tab will be on a bracket. Sometimes sneaking a phone in and taking a photo can be helpful visualizing where you need to press.

    I still couldnít get the fucker to budge and I almost dropped my little screwdriver into no-manís land that I use to tune my 2-stroke carbs. Iím gonna try to buy the replacement relay to figure out how the thing slides on and off. What a PITA. One of my hands looks like and cat tried to kill it.

    That is the same stuff I use in the CJ. Most guys with older trucks recommend it. I am in FL though. I don't worry too much about it getting too cold. How does that stuff flow up north?

    Just gonna leave this here.
    Some good advice. Don't mind his annoying up talk, HEY GUYS!!
    That pic is driving my OCD nuts.

    Do you have the factory service manual to reference? It's probably floating around online somewhere.

    Kind of a busy car repair week. Passenger window replacement after a break in on my kids car. That you junk yard for a $40 window !
    As I'm giving it a quick once over while the cars at home I see coolant stains in top of the radiator, quick pressure test shows a 4" hairline crack. Order a new radiator and swap that bitch out after work Wed, replace valve cover gaskets that have been leaking for God knows how long.
    After I do the gasket job I'm thinking I should finally adjust the valves on my Odyssey considering people's recommended it be done around 150k, I'm at 209k and don't think it's ever been done. I have seen some anecdotal info saying if you are reading a range of MAP voltage The valve gap should be fine. I can't get any confirmation this is a factual way to check so I tear into the fucker starting 7am. Fuck me, 6 1/2 hours later I'm finally done and the car sounds and runs pretty much the same
    Found a few exhaust valves that were a bit tight but for the most part things were fine.
    Probably should have left well enough alone.
