Carbon Tetrachloride was used in fire extinguishers. I don't think methylene chloride was. When Carbon tet is heated in a fire, it produces deadly phosgene gas, which killed more than one user...

The problem with methylene chloride AKA dichloromethane is that it's quickly absorbed through the skin, as well as getting in via lungs. It's not just a carcinogen, either. After using it to...

Really? We regularly get 60s with mine. My daughter has gotten almost 70 on a couple tanks we kept track of. I get around 50 on my Moto Guzzi 1000.

Ducatiman specializes in professionally restoring carbs if you decide you don't want to do it yourself. I've always done my own work, but plan to send him my 250 carbs for restoration shortly.

I was able to get out some big dents from mine by making a pry bar that fit in the filler hole. I had to cut it and re-weld it a few times to get it to reach all the dents, but I got the sheet metal...

I've put a zillion miles on a 1973 Dodge B200, and currently drive a 1984 150. The 200 series is much better for motorcycle hauling since it's a 3/4 ton van. I put extra springs on my 150 so it...

I have to agree. I painted my H2 with Imron around 1980 and that paint still in pretty good shape. Gasoline doesn't do anything to it, and neither does brake fluid. When I had to clean bad gas out...
