    His Lexus has a computer controlled engine that will adjust the engine based on knock. It will probably run on the lower octane fuel, but will not have the same performance or fuel economy. Just...

    I would not think that it would be legal to just go and remove the wheels no matter how much is owed. It seems like a civil matter that could go to small claims court. Then they would get a...

    That torque convertor is listed in the SI catalog. Call and ask if the ring gear is included and/or if they sell the ring gear as a separate item. If so, just buy new rather than doing a complete...

    I agree with you, but AFAIK, the only Studebaker that he owns is a 1956 Sky Hawk.
    I do not know what threads he is referring to (or how it happened). The solution is still to buy new parts.
