I used mine to start the 5.4 Liter V8 in my Expedition last week. Battery read 4V, hooked up my $50 Lithium pack, walked to the door and turned the key - cranked it right up. Amazed the hell out of...

They can leak from all the standard places, but haven't heard of any problem points other than vinyl.

Mine was in the range of 47 - until I changed to a slightly smaller CNC prop. Made huge changes in handling, smaller changes in acceleration, but now I top out around 43 or so when the engine...

Drain and refill the trans and engine oil while you're at it. If the water got high in the bilge, it can get into the trans. The engine is a lot safer, but changing oil is an easy fix for nerves. ...

I'd guess that there's a protective beam going down the center of the roof, right where they'd mount the antenna. Move it off to the side where there's no additional metal, and life is easier.

But,...

Are they spinning when you try to remove the old ones, or spinning as you try to tighten the new ones?

Taking them off sucks. 25% of mine just spun - had to rip open the carpet on top, and grab...

In general, it's a specialized fix. Yours doesn't look bad at all, so I wouldn't mess with it until winter.
