Wet Sump Vs. Oil Sump: Whats The Difference?}

Submitted by: Billet Fabrication

Cleaning aluminium valve covers of the car needs to be done from time to time as they accumulate oil and grimes and this might ruin the oil seal in the longer run. In this article, we are going to tell you how to do it in a right way.

Valve Cover Gaskets

To clean up valve cover gaskets, you need to make sure that you are opening it up in a right manner. Be careful not to gouge up the metal, as the heads can be hard to remove at times. Apply the remover at the remains of the gasket to scrape it away fully.

Timing Cover Gasket

To pull out the timing cover gasket, you have to perform the similar procedure as the valve cover gaskets. If you are going to use the blade for the process, then you will be able to remove it in a large section and this will leave very little or no residue over the aluminium.

Oil Seal Of Timing Cove

You will find total of two oil seals in the cover and it is best to read the manual or contact the professional for the same. You have to press a socket and whack it hard to push the seal outside the timing cover. To apply a new seal, you have to hammer it into the opening and you need to make sure that it hits the square to seat in properly.

Distributor Oil Seal

The second oil seal in the distributer can be removed by flipping the socket and it is quite easy to do it.

Cylinder Head and Water Head Piping

There are total of two adaptors on the top of the cylinder that run to the water pump with hose mounted to them. The parts can be small and you have to be careful with the entire process.

Oil Residue Inside the Covers

Any oil residue that is inside the cover needs to be taken care of as well. When you remove the gasket to replace it with the new one, there might be residue of the old gasket fallen in there and you have to remove it as well. Use oil to soak up the insides of the cover and leave it there for about 15 minutes. This will ensure that oil has collected all the residue that can be later soaked with the help of paper towel or shop rags.

Cleaning the residue from the timing cover needs to be done carefully to avoid any of the residue seep into the oil seal. The residue is harmful for the gasket, as it cuts through it pretty quick. Always install a new rubber seal after cleaning up the cover.

Last but not the least, it is always recommended that you get the cleaning done with the help of a professional if you dont have an idea how to do it in a right way. Always go in for high quality replacement parts.

Obama to suspend Arctic oil drilling

Obama to suspend Arctic oil drilling

Thursday, May 27, 2010

According to Democratic Senator Mark Begich from Alaska, the U.S. Department of the Interior has decided to halt all new Arctic exploratory oil drilling applications until 2011. The response is believed to be caused in part by the two current oil spill disasters (that of the Deepwater Horizon Incident and more recently the Alaska oil pipeline malfunction). However, Begich is not happy about the actions taken by the White House.

“I am frustrated that this decision by the Obama administration to halt offshore development for a year will cause more delays and higher costs for domestic oil and gas production to meet the nation’s energy needs,” Begich claims.

Last September, the state of Alaska made a public notice about Shell’s desire to drill off the coast of the Beaufort Sea, placing experimental drilling rigs at two drill site location: “Torpedo” and “Sivulliq”.

“Shell is committed to undertaking a safe and environmentally responsible exploration program in the Chukchi Sea and Beaufort Sea in 2010,” said Shell Oil Company President Marvin E. Odum to the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Mineral Management Service (MMS).

Odum follows with, “I am confident that we are ready to conduct the 2010 Arctic exploratory program safely and, I want to be clear, the accountability for this program rests with Shell.”

Chuck Clausen, director of the Alaska project at the National Resources Defense Council is not so optimistic: “Hazards present in the Arctic can include frigid temperatures, presence of sea ice, gale-force winds, intense storms and heavy fog … The potential for loss in the Arctic is great.”

Odum believes that the climate in the arctic will make any spill easier to clean up because, “Arctic conditions create differences in responding to oil in cold and ice conditions. Differences in evaporation rates, viscosity and weathering provide greater opportunities to recover oil. In Arctic conditions, ice can aid oil spill response by slowing oil weathering, dampening waves, preventing oil from spreading over large distances, and allowing more time to respond.”

However, Clausen believes that there are no current systems to remove oil from icy ocean waters.

This is not the first time that President Obama’s administration has taken the environmentally cautious path in Alaska. The President put Bristol Bay off limits to oil and gas exploration until 2017. Bristol Bay currently is one of the top salmon fishing grounds in the state.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is expected to give a speech at Thursday’s White House address, regarding the suspension of Arctic oil drilling projects.

    Sunflower oil saves at-risk newborns from infection
    Posted in Real Estate | February 21st, 2017

    Saturday, March 5, 2005 Simply massaging low birth weight babies with sunflower seed oil can protect them from potentially fatal infections.

    Infections and complications from preterm birth cause more than half of all neonatal deaths, and very low birth weight babies are particularly vulnerable.

    Preterm babies have immature skin that lacks a protective film called vernix that has antimicrobial properties.

    In some countries, such as India, newborns are routinely massaged with mustard oil.

    But mustard oil, says Gary Darmstadt of John Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, can delay recovery of the skin barrier and have a toxic effect on skin.

    Seeking an alternative low-cost product, Darmstadt and colleagues experimented with sunflower oil and an ointment called Aquaphor that comprises petrolatum, mineral oil, mineral wax and lanolin.

    The researchers tested the treatments on 497 newborns (72 hours old or less) and preterm babies (less than 33 weeks gestation) between 1998 and 2003 in Bangladesh.

    They applied the treatments to the entire body besides the scalp and face three times daily for the first 14 days and then twice daily until discharge.

    Babies treated with sunflower oil were found 41% less likely to develop infections than controls.

    “Evidence is emerging that the skin is much more important as a barrier to infection than previously recognized, particularly in preterm infants whose skin is underdeveloped,” says Darmstadt. “The good news is that treatment is available to strengthen the function of the skin as a barrier in these vulnerable newborns.”

    Test Driver Jobs Could You Become A Test Driver For A Car Magazine?

    Posted in Parts And Accessories | February 16th, 2017

    By David Bellm

    Being a car-magazine test driver is one of the ultimate jobs for anyone who likes cars. Test drivers get to spend plenty of time in pricey all-out performance machines – Corvettes, Vipers, and Porsches — not to mention awesome less-expensive cars like WRX, Mustang, and Eclipse. In addition, test drivers get to go on great trips to exotic locations, courtesy of automakers eager for publicity. Sounds great? You bet. I’ve been doing it since 1999 and I can’t honestly imagine a better job for anyone who loves cars.

    Do you have what it takes to join this terrific profession? Ask yourself these questions to reveal whether or not you have the personality to become a car-magazine test driver.

    – Are you passionate about cars?

    Believe it or not, people occasionally stumble into test-driver jobs despite having little or no enthusiasm for cars. But such instances are relatively rare. And those who do generally don’t go very far or progress very quickly in their test-driver career. Also, it’s not enough to love vintage or collectible cars. Although some publications drive and discuss such wonderful old automobiles, about 99 percent of test-driving opportunities are in new cars. That’s also where the greatest perks and privileges are, thanks to the generous public-relations budgets of auto manufacturers.

    – Do you like to share your knowledge with others?

    Although driving different cars all the time is obviously a lot of fun, the real meat of a test-driver job is sharing your opinion. That’s what automotive publications do, and those are the people who hire the most test drivers. Therefore, you need to be the sort who likes to tell others what you think.

    – Are you interested in a wide variety of cars?

    Most test-driver jobs are at publications that review the full range of cars, minivans, SUVs, and light trucks. In other words, until you reach the top of your career you’ll be driving stuff besides exotics and sports cars. Don’t get me wrong, even in the lower-level test-driver jobs you’ll get behind the wheel of Corvettes, Jaguars, Benzs, and other wonderful stuff — sometimes on race tracks and other performance settings. It’s just that you’ll also be balancing your time in those delights with rounds in more basic cars.

    – Do you like to improve your skills and learn?

    The basic skills you need to become a test driver aren’t all that difficult, but many of them have to be learned on your own initiative — there’s no ‘Test-Driver’ school you can sign up for. In addition, you have to keep up with automakers’ ever-changing product lines once you get into the profession. Because of these things, test drivers have to be the sort of folks who enjoy learning new things. But hey, how punishing can it be to read about cars and learn how to express your opinion about them?

    If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you probably have the fundamental personality to become a car-magazine test driver. Mix these traits with healthy doses of perseverance, diligent study, and focused practice, and you can learn the specific skills you need and break into this exciting profession.

    TARC to showcase R&D achievements in 2008 AutoTronics Taipei
    Posted in Real Estate | February 16th, 2017

    Friday, April 11, 2008

    In the Opening Day of 2008 AutoTronics Taipei (April 9), the Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan (ITRI) invited Jamie C. Hsu (Consultant of Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Republic of the China and Former Management Executive Director of General Motors Global Technology) for a speech in the “Pavilion of Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium (TARC)” to forecast the future of automobile industry in Taiwan, which echoed the “Taiwan Automotive International Forum & Exhibition”, held at TWTC Nangang in conjunction with 2008 Taipei AMPA.

    Before the main show, Department of Industrial Technology of Ministry of Economic Affairs supervised the establishment of TARC by ITRI, Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, Metal Industries Research & Development Center, and the other academical and industrial units to improve the level of research and development including applications on security, artificial intelligence, and energy-saving.

    There were several crisis for the automobile industry in Taiwan because of the decrease of market scale, low self-independence, technology transition, and the rise up of oil prices. But after in conjunction with light-weighting, electronical, and energy-saving related industries, there were other chances and challenges for the automobile industry in Taiwan. Currently, the Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium should do a proper role on R&D, policy driving, and quality improving, even though urban and rural differences, and key issue of carbon dioxide wasting, if there is a new innovation, Taiwan will be a good example in the automobile industry in the world.

    The Next Consortium of ITRI launches ‘RoboScooter’

    The Next Consortium of ITRI launches ‘RoboScooter’
    Posted in Real Estate | February 16th, 2017

    Sunday, May 11, 2008

    At the Pavilion of Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium during the AutoTronics Taipei 2008, in Taipei Time, the Next Consortium of Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) unveiled a brand-new environmental-concept vehicle named “RoboScooter”. It was jointly designed by the Creativity Lab of ITRI, SYM Motors, and the Media Lab of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This announcement was approved by industrial, governmental, and academical executives, but not just in Taiwan.

    The ability for R&D to manufacture the electronic vehicles and bicycles was concerning to several automobile-related industries. There was concern not only from several trade shows, but also international competitions related to the design after winning several prizes back in Taiwan to establish the industrial position and brand image of “Made in Taiwan”. Since several industries like automobile are transformed to high-value industries, “creativity” progressively became a key element before unveiling any new products.

    As of this sector, Wen-jean Hsueh (ITRI Creativity Lab General Director) hoped companies could do proper transformations on its R&D nature from “Made in Taiwan” to “Created in Taiwan” for best practice. This not only echoed “OBM” theory discussed at 2007 Taiwan Brands’ Trend Forum but also blended with a key element of production – “creativity”.

    On the other side of SYM Motors, to solve the transportation problem for TWTC Nangang, SYM Motors Taiwan imported manufacturing technology from Kinglong Bus Co., Ltd. to manufacture several 4th-cycle low floor buses and sell them to Chung-hsing Bus Co., Ltd. and Kwang-huang Bus Co., Ltd. In this launch, the SYM Motors Taiwan hope this vehicle is energy-efficiency, easily-parked, and has creative functions which can improve the transportation habits of individuals.

    Your Dog: An Alarm With Bite!}

    Posted in Dog Rescue | February 14th, 2017

    Submitted by: Marea Battle

    “Beware of the Dog,” you know you have seen the signs, generally printed in a bright, glowing orange, are often prevalent signs in several areas. In homes and even on commercials, dogs offer adept protection. Many a would-be robber will go the other way when seeing a sign reading “This Property Is Protected by Guard Dogs.”

    People can hardly be blamed for seeking protection, especially if they have been mugged or burglarized. But are dogs really an actual crime preventive?

    Your Dog: An Alarm with Bite

    When you look to who to trust some may be familiar with, dog trainer Arthur J. Haggerty, (Arthur J. Haggerty, perhaps the most famous dog trainer in the United States – familiar to legions of dog owners as Captain Haggerty and to legions of canines as He Who Must Be Obeyed ) who has had over seventy rented dogs on nightly duty at construction sites in New York, says: “Contractors have told us that petty thefts and vandalism start to decline as soon as they post a ‘Warning-This Area Patrolled by Attack Dog’ sign on the site. When a dog moves in, thieves just move on to easier pickings.”

    Having a dog in your home or at your business provides a level of security not seen in general security settings. Take for instance the sound of a bark. Who isnt somewhat afraid of a dog? When the bark is heard by your security animal, panic and fear can cause a would-be criminal to panic. Immediate flight-or-fight reflex kicks in. However, with an alarm a criminal may still have a level of comfort in the knowledge the police will take minutes to arrive. In these minutes the criminal may have ample opportunity to complete the task of robbing your home or business. Dogs bite alarm systems just make noise. This is not to suggest a monitored alarm system cannot be utilized. The addition of a dog or dogs to your security arsenal can only serve to help to deter your home or business from being made a victim in a crime.

    Walking down a street with a dog provided a deterrent to would be assailants. Dogs seem to instinctively protect their human masters. Better yet, when a dog is trained to be a protector you have a feeling of confidence when you are walking with your pet. This does not suggest taking chances. When one is out for a stroll with your dog all other precautions should be kept in mind. This includes, walking in well-lit areas, walk in areas where other people are generally around and walk in areas familiar to you.

    Here are some basic ideas on how to train your dog:

    1. Be consistent in your use of words for commands.

    2. Dogs like to hear their name, and it gets their attention. So use your dog’s name along with commands. (“Fido, sit!”) But do not use your dog’s name in conjunction with a reprimand, such as “No!” Your dog must learn that responding to its name brings positive-not negative-results.

    3. Use liberal praise as a reward. Many dogs will do more for affection than for food.

    4. Shorter training sessions yield better results Less stress for you and your pet. Start at 5 10 minutes and build up from there.

    5. Do not reward bad behavior. So displeasure with a stern voice and perhaps include hand gestures/other visual cues for your dog to learn.

    Dogs can be wonderful pets and companions. Additionally, you can see having a dog can provide a good bit of protection. They are certainly a good, best friend to have.

    Tornadoes damage hundreds of Missouri homes, force closure of airport

    Tornadoes damage hundreds of Missouri homes, force closure of airport
    Posted in Real Estate | February 14th, 2017

    Sunday, April 24, 2011

    An EF4 tornado struck near St. Louis, Missouri Friday night, forcing the closure of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and damaging over 2,700 buildings in St. Louis County. The National Weather Service also confirmed that an EF1 tornado touched down in neighboring St. Charles County and an EF2 touched down in Pontoon Beach, Illinois.

    The city of Bridgeton, in North St. Louis County, was hit by the EF4 tornado. According to the National Weather Service, it was the most powerful tornado to touch down in the St. Louis region since 1967, with winds ranging from 166 and 200 miles (267 and 322 kilometres) per hour. Aftereffects of that tornado were also reported in Maryland Heights, Missouri.

    One official estimated that anywhere from 50 to 200 homes in the Maryland Heights and Bridgeton areas incurred damage, but early numbers released by St. Louis County indicate that over 2,000 buildings in those two cities had suffered “noticeable damage,” which does not include minor damage. Around 30,000 people in the region did not have power Saturday, out of a total of 47,000 affected residents.

    Authorities with search and rescue dogs went door-to-door Saturday, looking for possibly trapped residents. Aerial imagery was being used in damage assessment. Area residents unaffected by the tornado were assisting those that lost their homes, reported St. Louis television station KSDK.

    The Harmann Estates neighborhood of Bridgeton was heavily damaged during the storm, with many residences losing roofs and siding. Officials have already condemned some of the subdivision’s homes. St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley reported 25 homes in Bridgeton and Berkeley, Missouri as being completely destroyed and an additional 35 as uninhabitable.

    Granite City, Illinois was struck by the EF2 tornado, while New Melle, Missouri was hit by the EF1. Fourteen New Melle homes sustained minor damage, while four were heavily damaged.

    The storm also caused the temporary shutdown of two major St. Louis highways. Portions of Interstate 70 and Interstate 270 were closed Friday night due to fallen power lines and storm debris. Both blocked sections have since reopened, but officials said it would take a few days to remove all the debris, which they pushed onto the roadsides.

    Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, which is immediately west of Berkeley, suffered heavy damage Friday night from the same tornado, and was forced to halt all regular operations Saturday while crews worked to clear the affected terminals. Eight flights had been forced to land in Kansas City, Missouri Friday night due to the tornado. About 500 people were in Lambert Airport when the tornado hit. A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesperson said other US airports were not affected by Lambert’s shutdown. Lambert is not an airline hub and is significantly less busy than it was ten years ago.

    In a Saturday press conference, Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge, Lambert’s director, said the airfield and Terminal 2 were “fully functional,” but the main terminal’s Concourse C had been severely impacted by the storm. That terminal, which sustained the heaviest damage, serves Air Tran, American Airlines, Cape Air, and Frontier Airlines. The total cost of repairs at Lambert is expected to be in the millions of dollars, but Hamm-Niebruegge said the airport does not yet have a good estimate.

    It was like being in a horror movie. Grown men were crying.

    One passenger of a waiting plane at Lambert told KSDK that heavy winds pushed the aircraft about 20 feet (6.1 metres) while it was still attached to the gate. Two other planes on the tarmac were unable to return to the airport, so passengers were bused back. Five planes—four operated by American and one by Southwest Airlines—suffered damage, and some will undergo major repairs.

    Some travelers inside the airport received medical attention for minor injuries caused by flying glass. A handful of people were transported to a local hospital for additional treatment, but all were later released. “We get to the terminal and lights were out, glass everywhere, blood everywhere from people had been cut,” recalled one witness. Another person at the airport reported, “The ceiling was falling. The glass was hitting us in the face. Hail and rain were coming in. The wind was blowing debris all over the place. It was like being in a horror movie. Grown men were crying.”

    On Saturday, it was evident that Concourse C would not be open for some time, said Mayor of St. Louis Francis Slay. A large section of its roof was missing and around half of its windows had been blown out by the high winds. Debris and water from the storm were present inside the airport as crews worked to restore power and assess damage to the terminal. Missing windows had been boarded up, ruined carpet had been removed, and the control tower was functional by Saturday afternoon. The power was back on by 7:40 p.m. CDT (00:40 UTC) that evening.

    The airport resumed outgoing flight services Sunday, although several incoming flights landed at Lambert Saturday evening. Slay said the airport will be running at 70 percent capacity until mid-week, depending on the availability of airline crew members and planes. Airlines using Concourse C will have their operations temporarily relocated, he added. On Sunday, Southwest was operating at normal capacity, while AirTran moved to Concourse B and canceled four of its eleven scheduled flights. A spokesperson for American said the airline would have planes ready for normal Monday operations. American had previously canceled all St. Louis flights scheduled for Sunday.

    It was horrific and for that much damage to been done, to have no loss of life, is truly a blessing

    On Saturday afternoon, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon arrived at Lambert and visited areas devastated by the tornado. He originally planned to tour Maryland Heights, Bridgeton, and Berkeley, but Nixon was only able to tour Berkeley due to an approaching line of storms. While in St. Louis, the governor said 750 Missouri homes had been damaged by Friday’s tornadoes and that federal assistance was forthcoming. Nixon reported that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was involved in assessing storm damage, as well as that US President Barack Obama had already contacted him, promising relief funds. US Representative Lacy Clay, said Saturday that he would brief Obama on the situation.

    The state declared the affected areas of St. Louis County a disaster area. No one has reported serious injuries or deaths as a result of the storm, although some people were treated for minor injuries. “It was horrific and for that much damage to been done, to have no loss of life, is truly a blessing,” Slay said.
