    Thanks guys, luckily I have high pain tolerance, when I broke my leg I didn't need pain killers, right now I just have a minty feeling on some of the burned areas, uncomfortable at worst, but don't tell my wife, she might lower the booze dose during recovery, lol, as I can't move too much to not make the injuries worst, drinking beer, watching TV, and fooling on the computer is pretty much all I can do.

    Wrenching accidents, show 'em
    Hey gang, a damn ricer's Honda burned me pretty bad, it is my wife's sister car, she recently broke with her daughter's dad and he left her the car they bought together, a 1997 Honda Civic LX, the idiot made a lot of bad mods on it, the thing was running so lean that it overheated on a long trip and blew the head gasket, when I was checking the overheating problem the radiator hose blew up splashing me. The burns are 1st degree, not serious but very inconvenient, it burned my chest, left armpit and neck, no riding or wrenching for me for a couple of weeks.
    Good thing is that the POS ricer's car is too far gone, I'm gonna have the pleasure to take it to the yunk yard, lol, head is warped, tires are garbage because of a stupid camber job, needs a cat and it hasn't seen tags in almost 2 years, among other things. Good riddance!!

    That trick is awesome, will it work on tube tires as well?

    Where are you located?, I'm in Costa Rica and I have bought stuff from Dan, there are companies that they give you an address on the US where you can ship your stuff to, they receive the stuff and ship it to you in your country, if you are in Latin America or Caribbean countries most probably Aeropost has presence in your country.

    Probably a vaccum leak, start it and spray carb cleaner or starter fluid around the carb, vaccum lines and vacuum pet cock (if fitted), just avoid the air intake, if you hear a change of RPMs or it stalls then you have a vacuum leak.

    You have an electrical gremlin, time to take out the multimeter and start checking cables. Start with the ignition switch cables, one might be short out.

    The lil truck is back in the road!. Almost 100 miles on it after putting everything on it and it hasn't exploded yet, so I guess I did it right, lol, this is the first time I've replaced a clutch.

    Still waiting for the clutch line, it should be here tomorrow or on Monday, I went ahead and installed the pilot bearing, the crankshaft seal, flywheel, slave cylinder, clutch disk and plate; I got everything new except the flywheel, I got it turned and it looks like new!, the outer ring piece of the old pilot bearing was still in, it was a major PITA to get it out, I had to cut it into pieces with an small chisel and a hammer, the bread trick didn't work.
