Putting radiator stop leak in your brake fluid doesn't make them stop better or why one should have a light when working on the car at night.

On old SB Chevy's w/ headers, inevitably you will cook starter solenoids. The early catcon-equipped trucks, say '73- '76, had heat shields for the starters that you could buy cheap and bend/cut to whatever you needed for a F-body, 'vette, etc. If your solenoid quits on you while away from home, pour ice water or anything cold down between the header tubes onto the solenoid. It will start right up.

This one I thought was obvious but I never see it mentioned anywhere or talked about online....  

When setting rockers, just bump the starter until the lifter is on the heel of the cam.  Tighten down and/or set lash. Done.  Next valve.  No messing with hand turning the motor, getting it to TDC, bouncing all over to different valves or doing it running.

Do you have an electric fuel pump gone bad and it's in your fuel tank? Can't get to that fuel pump without dropping the fuel tank?
Not anywhere near your garage and all your tools and you need to get this bitch to start and roll down the road or at least get it onto a trailer so you can tow the bitch?

Here's your solution ...

You will need a refrigerant flush bottle, a fuel injection pressure testing kit and hoses (that comes with a pressure gauge), some fuel and a portable air compressor.

You can pretty easily fashion a pressurized miniature fuel tank that you can swap out your fuel tank fuel line for.

A quart sized flush bottle will get you at least a couple of miles or get you on to a tow dolly/trailer.

If you need go further just put more fuel in the bottle and repressurize.

I'll go snap some pictures of the setup I keep in a bag in a bit when I get done doing my dipshit boss' job for him. FML, I hate this job.

When replacing a clutch, to remove the pilot bushing/bearing from the crankshaft use an old input shaft, alignment tool, or solid round stock the size of the pilot.  Pack the center with grease or bread.  The pound the tool you made into the pilot with a hammer.  The hydraulic force will drive out the pilot bearing/bushing.
