NAIRB,

I live in Lovely Lafayette...on a private road Tucked up against a Mountainside near the Reservoir...

San Ramon, Yup...

Nice area, Did a remote out there for an Emergency services convention from the Hilton last year .. Coming up again this year in Oct..

(ugh! 3 days stuck in a HOT ENG, In front of a A/V Mixer board...Food dribbling in on paper plates...through the window..Acid reflux to the max...)

Last year, one of our Tech's failed to check the compressor switch, and launched The Microwave transmitter Antenna Mast ,

(That Big air Collapsible Mast used on TV News Vans with the studio to transmitter link Dish on top)

And The antenna's 90 feet in the air, and a Half Block away...I'm Sure The SR Hilton's looking forward to our Visit again this year...along with State farm...The Fire Department...The FCC...

If your In The area, PM me, Maybe we can do Coffee or Somthin'
Always Happy to meet Fellow Rodders..

Oh..Yeah...On the Winstar...I pulled the Webster's down off the shelf....found this...

WEBSTER'S DEF: Winstar...
Verb, old english, used in the definition of constant failure..

Good Call on that one...

KILLER,

The ONLY time you have to worry about the line.....

Is When YOU CAN'T walk it....

The rest is "All Good" !

was wondering what also happened to the van probably in the crusher by now. Would like to know if anybody else has experience with sodium silicate, I just ordered a gallon that is 40%. Does anybody know if I need to mix with water and just how much do I use? Supposing like maybe 32 oz. I am fixing a 89 toyota camry 4 cylinder with small head leak just enough to make it overheat....any help would be appreciated....vet67coupe

follow whatever instructions are on the bottle you buy to the letter. usually to the effect of drain radiator of all antifreeze, fill with water run to temp, add bottle, run for 30 min, turn off, drain mix. refill with water. depends on actual manufacturer.

man i miss doc

thanks for response on sodium silicate

Hey have really read up on this I ordered the main stuff from a chemical company it was like $28 shipped compared to buying blue devil, mendtite and a few other that sell for more than this that are the same stuff. I have read up on most of the applications about disconnecting the heater element. Just wondering if anyone had tryed buying it from the gallon....I am thinking about 32 oz. would do fine and do the brush and repeat....also was going to make sure that all the antifreeze was out before starting the job......vet

On mythbusters they sealed a leaking radiator with a raw egg. Not a permanent solution but it would get you home. Of course who drives around with an extra raw egg in the glove box. Still it was neat to watch.
