"Totally awesome " cleaner..
It's cheap a buck a bottle.. At the dollar stores and 3 bucks for a 1/2 gal ..
Get the yellow stuff , it's the best ..
You spay it on an alum. engine and all the grim drips off !
And if you use an old tooth brush WOW !
It also works great on the alum wheels...

Also is an awesome oven cleaner !

If you have sore joints / arthritis, spray WD-40 on and rub it in.

This is not a joke - it really works. Someone mentioned it on talkback radio one day, and they were flooded with calls from people with stories of using it.

When I stumble across some little doodad or supply and I think 'wow' I always go and buy a spare or two.

I've learned the hard way... you need it, go back to get it, and they no longer make it :wall

Of course with higher-dollar items this might not be realistic, but for the little stuff just do it + make it a habit :thumb

Drive new fork seals in with electrical tape.

Just wrap the tube about 6-7 times and slide the tubes together 'til it's seated.
