Is there any way to adjust the travel on the clutch pedal on a 1969 Triumph Herald 1200. At the moment the clutch does not dis-engage until about 1" from the floor (without carpets), resulting in plenty of gear crunching - mainly 1st & 2nd and it is quite a strain on my old knee! read more...In article: clutch adjustment on Triumph Herald
I have an 88 acura that has overheated once again. This time it blue the head gasket. I'm reassembling it now, and I come to discover that I may have had the valve timing wrong from last time. I don't have any manuals. The only documentation I can find says to line up the marks on the cam pulleys (obviously), and then attach the bottom half of the timing cover and the crank (accessories) pulley. Then check the little "white mark" on the pulley. It should line up with the plastic pointer on the timing cover when at TDC. read more...In article: What's the definitive answer about lining up timing marks on the crank pully?

Just curious, If I cleaned my throttle body and reassembled it without changing the manifold gasket, what would the symptoms be, if the old gasket isn't holding its seal?
