For better or worse, I have a Craftsman sawzall. I think I've used it to cut at least ten quarter panels off and cut down two shells into small enough pieces to haul to the scrap yard.

Battery to engine (transmission housing) ground maybe instead of "Engine block to chassis ground"? Is there a large cable from the block to the chassis? I know there is a small one from the valve...

Sorry, can't offer an opinion on brand; I haven't bought a new one in a long time. The one that failed in my wagon I replaced with the OEM one from the car my daughter wrecked in October last year.

Can't hurt to check them all - easier than changing the alternator again. My last project car also had starting problems early on because the starter was loose on the transmission!

I kinda wondered too - who doesn't know how to make sandwich? When you applied the mayo, the action was off screen. If you're doing repair videos, you'll want it all on screen.

I'm still about 12,000 miles behind. For future reference, the FITV can usually be fixed just by replacing the o-ring on the internal piston.

What are planning to do in the rear?
