    Greetings all!

    I wanted to explain what the Maintainance sub-forum is for. This forum is to discuss routine maintainance items, tools, techniques, etc. This forum is not for repair questions.

    Here's an example of a question that should go in this forum:

    "Is it safe to switch to synthetic fluids in my 1991 Chevrolet Suburban? Will I have leaks as a result?"

    Here's an example of a question that should be asked in another forum as appropriate:

    "How do I remove the harmonic balancer on my 2002 Chevrolet Silverado with the 5.3L engine?"

    I hope this helps people. Threads that are not routine maintainance questions will be moved to the appropriate sub-forum.

    Let's welcome the addition of a new sub-forum! :party:

    Best practice when replacing wheel hub on a 96 k2500HD 310,000 miles . 1 of 4 bolts rounds off after normal aged corroded bolt removal practices.

    GAS AXE CUT OFF THE CORNOR GET A HANDICAPED PLAQURED CALL IT GOOD.??

    Sure hope not but I could see where a SOP Would include all bolted parts in that area, otherwise ship wreck sets in at some point.

    Just tossing this out to the maint wizzers

    Might of should made a thread with this

    CRAWDADDY, Wen we suggest a possible solution we in maint no matter the industries , provide a tool box with parts (based on equipment history), that will be due to fail because have approached or surpassed expected life. Fix all in same operating area.
    RESULTS. Extended better quality equipment use at minnimal downtime and expense. Smoother running departments high margin parts sales and keep the legend going
