The easy way to prevent that is to run the blower while the engine sits after running.

Your fuel system will be fine with E10- that's what we have here unless someone has a car or truck that can use 'Flex Fuel', which is E85. That would be a real problem for a vehicle that's not made...

Do you step or kneel on the seams or place your fist on them when you stand up? Don't- that's the easiest way to rip seams.

Not really sure why you would want to use two parts, although I don't know how you were thinking of manufacturing it- the Malibu insert was a one piece drop-in that was the height from the hull to...

No way in hell is that an 18 ga wire- it should have been orange, and 8 gauge, at least. If you were looking at the purple wire, that's the one that excites the field coil.

You DO NOT need 1/0 cable- have you ever seen that? It's almost as thick as your thumb.

That's criminal- we have a place that charges about $90 for a rebuilt alternator like these, maybe $20 more if it's upgraded. Maybe that's just the price I get, but they're great to deal with.

Welp, I connected the old pump to the battery in my van and, voila! It spins.

Bad design if it comes out so easily- never should have been released for sale.
