  • May 21 2018, 04:31:51 PM daveismissing: I pushed your 101 subscriptions over 500, so you get paid now? ;)
  • May 21 2018, 06:17:58 PM Scoobum: Thanks! I have the ads turned monetization.
  • May 21 2018, 06:20:21 PM Scoobum: I worked on Kellys car for free. I ain't in this for the money.
  • May 21 2018, 06:50:54 PM Scoobum: Matt from Sloppy Mechanics beating the crap out of a Dodge Demon on the dyno...710 to the back tire. I'm headed out to buy some lottery tickets...[link]
  • May 21 2018, 08:02:57 PM Steve Wood: when you take money, then you are responsible for anything that happens to them as long as they own the car.  In this case, you find just how incredibly stupid most people are today
  • May 22 2018, 12:57:28 PM nocooler: I thought you said it’s rusty Brad? That’s a gem! Might want to start masking the plate number unless you want crackhead stalker types tracking you down.
  • May 22 2018, 01:41:57 PM reality: Brad, can you provide a link to tailpipe emission test in ON?
  • May 22 2018, 04:20:27 PM Scoobum: Jeremy...under neath that truck the brake and fuel lines are a mess. The bottom of the drivers door is almost flapping in the breeze. I just priced a fuel pump at 425 plus 13 percent sales tax if it needs one. It's good money after bad...
  • May 22 2018, 04:23:29 PM Scoobum: My 1994 Impala required the tial pipe test. My 1998 pickup was the computer. My two 2500 pickups are tail pipe as they are deemed commercial. A mechanic friend said diesels have to idle for either 3 or 5 minutes with any black smoke and they pass. It's nothing but a cash cow for the govt.
  • May 22 2018, 04:48:18 PM Scoobum: I learned a long time ago it's best to buy a vehicle turn key. There's several trucks in pristine conditon from that era on Kijiji for around 5 grand.
  • May 22 2018, 06:48:04 PM Steve Wood: I assume that OBDI vehicles go on the tail pipe and OBDII vehicles are  just scanned?
  • May 22 2018, 06:56:19 PM nocooler: I think seafoa.
  • May 22 2018, 06:56:35 PM nocooler: Doh - damn phone
  • May 22 2018, 06:57:14 PM nocooler: I think sea foam needs to send Brad a can to test in the rusty pos!
  • May 22 2018, 07:03:34 PM Scoobum: My 1994 Impala SS was tailpipe. My 1998 1/2 ton pickup was scanned. 2500 series trucks are considered commercial even if owned by a provate citizen like me and are tail pipe. Deisel are 3 to 5 minutes with no black smoke at idle. 1987 and older are etest exempt.
  • May 22 2018, 07:11:38 PM Scoobum: Judging by my 94 Impala and 1998 1/2 ton truck...scanni ng starts somewhere from 1995 to 1998
  • May 22 2018, 07:13:17 PM Scoobum: Ontario is the only province that etests...but only certain areas of Ontario.
  • May 22 2018, 09:04:54 PM Steve Wood: OBDI cars have to be put on the dyno in Houston..yet every inspection place will claim their dyno is down, or the tech is out because they don't want to do them.  Yet, the state inspects them all the time and if the dyno is down and not fixed straight away, they will lose their license
  • May 22 2018, 09:24:48 PM reality: AFAIK only obd2 cars and light truck [under10,000 lbs 4500 kg are etested every 2 years after they are 7 yrs old  Commercial vehicles over 4500 kgs notwithstandin g.
  • May 22 2018, 09:26:05 PM reality: I don;t think there are any dyno's left.
  • May 22 2018, 09:30:19 PM reality: Whoops here you go  [link]
  • May 23 2018, 04:56:24 PM TexasT: what if your veicle is 9
  • May 23 2018, 04:56:38 PM TexasT: 1987 or earlier?
  • May 23 2018, 05:09:14 PM reality: [link]
  • May 23 2018, 05:11:01 PM reality: [link]     in the first paragraph
  • May 24 2018, 09:17:09 AM gusszgs: Anyone shipped tires within Canada? Any recommendation s on who to use and best price? CP?
  • May 24 2018, 10:18:24 AM daveismissing: Bus parcel maybe? Fastenal?
  • May 24 2018, 10:31:47 AM daveismissing: mechanics: [link]
  • May 24 2018, 03:45:39 PM Scoobum: Joe shipped a set of tires/rims to me a few years back via Purolator.
  • May 24 2018, 05:13:28 PM gusszgs: Ok thanks guys
