I thought everything injected has an excess fuel return line any more, the fuel pump should pump more than is needed to run full throttle so there needs to be a bypass somewhere that needs regulation. On the F250, you just add a #8 standard machine washer to the base of the filter housing.

I am not fluent in Toyota. But a programmwble ECU is just a regular ECU with access jacks, there are ways to access the programming because manufacturers need to sometimes modify the base software. On my VW, I can do it through the obd2 port but it leaves tracks that are illegal.

Such as a Fueltech ECU? I still remember when Fueltech was headquartered in my neighborhood.

In case of the Spyder it is not possible to reprogramm the ECU.
People have tried for over 20 years, and it hasn't been done yet.

There are different companies making aftermarket ECUs, however Megasquirt would probably be the most affordable option...

Have any of you seen rotator ratchets?

I shared ratchet extensions, which are cool. Eric the Car Guy showed some in a video years ago, and Chris suggested them in his video in #1, but in some random video I watched while logged out of YouTube someone showed: So, this came out a decade ago, and I just learned of it now. I don't know how much torque you can put with a right-angle attachment, but here is one place to order one: $37 on Amazon.

Can you buy a simple right-angle attachment for your socket so you actually have some leverage?

I have one for my drill, which means that I can use an adapter to use it on nuts and bolts, but it has a chuck, so it is much bigger.

I've got one of these:

Not much torque but astronauts use them in space.

Don't their wrenches have counter-rotating masses so they aren't the counter-rotating mass?

Some wrenches do. Depends on if the person is hard attached to a structure or just tethered and the torque values needed. When you spend millions, couple thou is pocket change.

I should have bought an oil udder!


It is $21 on their site, but they don't say how much shipping is, and when I put one in my basket it kept saying "Enter your address to view shipping options" even once I entered my full address, just not my name, phone number, or payment information.

It would be $28 shipped on Amazon and $31 with eBay.

I am surprised I didn't talk about the Oil Udder.

The Camry filters screw into the pan from below, so when you drain the pan, the filter is still full of oil, and as soon as you tip it the slightest bit, it leaks all over your hand.

I kept planning on ordering it, but somehow didn't, then ended up improvising:

I bought a $2.30 bottle of Dr. Rust Eater, poured it on metal from which I am removing rust for Mom's greenhouse, cleaned out and dried the bottle, then cut off the bottom. I broke the filter loose, removed it the rest of the way with my Wish Oil Udder, and while I had dirty oil all over my hand, there was a ton in the bottle!
