Do you think the -55*F weather we had recently may be a contributing factor Jon? My rad blew a couple tubes and I have to replace it. I'm gonna do a block inspection too. Especially after seeing what is happening with your truck. My coolant was only good to -25*F.
Front timing cover yes Jon?? If it's the cover I've had a hard time trying to find those. Did one of those a few years back. In that particular case the timing cover was bad. Found one in Arizona and had it shipped to me. Damned thing was $300.00 plus shipping. USED!

I think the bolts will come out. But, well I gotta just sit on it. Maybe 24-48hrs let the Weld Dry. All it has to do is hold coolant at 210f at 15 psi or less. The weld is rated more than 3500psi tensile strength and withstand 500f temps. Should get me another 6 months to a year lol.
What a long day. At least we had above freezing temps.
Yeah, the problem with a product like JB Weld is that both mating surfaces have to be super clean in order for the product to adhere. Sometimes, depending on the application you can cheap out with a little gasket maker around the treads and then torque it down. Either way, it will be a temporary thing.

Well I got it all sealed up, waited till about 5pm and filled it up. Had to run out and get a T-stat gasket while the old one has been off a couple of times.
JB weld for the win. not a tiny drop. ran for about an hour and burped the air out. Let it cool, capped it and picked my kid up from work which is approximately 10 miles from home. We'll let it cool off over night and check underneath in the early AM.
Even if it dripped a tiny bit, it would have been better than it dumping out. I literally filled in the hole and did a bead along the seam. This is a good thread because when this gives out, I'll have a good timeline to track it by.
Totally sealed and dried. I swear by JB weld man. I've used it quite a bit. Haven't done a "Fix" like this while one surface is aluminum and the other is steel lol.
Just don't have the time to do it right. The motor needs an overhaul believe me. It's bad. If I still have the spark plug, I'll take a picture of it. I shit myself when I pulled it out.... the blow by is real man.
zila1: If you liked that mouse that much another type or brand may not suit you. If you can find another one, I would get it. Maybe two more if you can swing it and put one away.

ShrimpBrime: Any suggestions, or should I just get another of the same mouse? I did get a lot of years from it....
Aug 7, 2022 17:51:51 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: I dislike my new mouse. Need suggestions. Was spoiled for a long time with a Razor mamba tournament edition. The mouse wheel has 4 buttons on it's own, I liked the side to side page scroll feature it had. The lazer wigz out occasionally.

antinomy: So if you lack of sex, VIA's here to help you
Aug 6, 2022 18:15:01 GMT -5
antinomy: Nano has twice performance for same clocks against the older C7. But compatibility is a bitch. Bench(f**n)mate won't run on it, W10 didn't run too (maybe there is some build that will), some benchmarks are finicky about VIAs.
Aug 6, 2022 18:14:45 GMT -5
antinomy: The architecture has changed a few times. C3 is like the stone age. Superseeded by C7. Don't remember about IPC but the bus changed from P6 arch (Pentium 2/3) to quad-pumped (Pentium 4/Core2). Then it has been replaced by Isaiah architecture (VIA Nano).
Aug 6, 2022 18:12:45 GMT -5
austin86: yeah the c3 was a slow chip, some of the zhaoxin CPUs use VIA architecture too.

Macsbeach98: And dont go much better either
Aug 3, 2022 16:34:57 GMT -5
Mr.Scott: I have a few VIA's. Not much different than PIII's.
Aug 3, 2022 15:21:08 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: No, haven't gotten into VIA processors actually. Figure try and recoup the spending on the board even though I really like it.
Aug 3, 2022 10:56:14 GMT -5
austin86: Have you ever played with VIA CPUs? they have some very low TDP. many are sub 20w
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:33 GMT -5
austin86: Cool idea. the b660 is a good chipset albeit a little simple. I do have a Asus csm board so my experience could be gimped.
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:06 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Try to build a sub 100w system. Then maybe sell it. Just a thought at this point. Bit have a B660-I it would work perfect with.
Aug 2, 2022 16:18:44 GMT -5
austin86: I almost got one of the faster Pentium's, what will you be using it for?
Aug 2, 2022 9:05:30 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: I was thinking of building with a celeron or Pentium gold. Like 59 bucks for a dual core lga 1700
Aug 1, 2022 20:25:13 GMT -5
austin86: I got my 12100f on ebay for about 96 dolors before tax/shipping. its a lot of CPU for the price
Aug 1, 2022 8:09:56 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Celeron and Petium gold are both under 100 bucks. 12th gen.

george: my workshop 5600G been really rock solid, not one hick-up so far, pulls good. wife's old i3 still pulls good also, though I do not have experience of the newer i3's though.
Jul 31, 2022 20:01:19 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: the kids 1st and 2nd get chips to 5000 series. APU for my Daughter I think and 5600X for my youngest son.
