When starting any thing in the cold, the choke butterfly needs to be closed,(choke knob pulled out) so that it restricts the airflow. As the engine warms up you can open the choke(choke knob pushed in) a little at a time. i would pull the plugs, and warm and dry them with a cigarette lighter, in cas...

I would start by checking the freeze point of your coolant. When you top it off, your not just adding water, right? When was the last time you flushed the cooling system? The only way i can see ambient air temperature causing a leak is if your coolant is freezing in the radiator, and the water pump ...

Heres what your mechanic didn't tell you, Even if you replaced the rear main seal, the blowby from 210,000 miles on the rings and cylinder walls will soon cause another seal failure, like everybody else told you keep an eye on your oil level. They put the dipstick and 710 caps on them engines cause ...

I hate to be the lone voice of opposition here, but im thinking its an electrical problem. Im leaning towards electrical because of the guage fluctuation. Maybe a corroded terminal on top of the tank, or in the pump wiring. Mechanical things(like fuel pumps) usually don't die then come back to life....

Them aint screw holes fellas.

The top cover has tabs, which snap into those holes.

The one on my saiga 12 is snug, but the one on the 223 is kinda loose but not fall out loose.

when your folding stock breaks, call tapco and tell them the fore end is junk too, they will replace them both for you.

I'm assuming, because of the neutral drop, that its a drive shaft u-joint. if thats the case, here are a few likely causes, first, you might have knocked a balance weight off the drive shaft, look for a clean spot about a half inch by an inch. if its missing a weight, the shaft can be rebalanced, or...

On my 10fp heavy barrel(w/ accutrigger) the free float closes up and affects POI when using a bipod mounted on either sling swivel. Same thing off-hand if you grip too far forward. Check yours, I hope its differrent than mine.

I opened mine up with some sand paper to cure it.

birchwood-casey makes a product specifically for gun stock finishing, its called tru-oil. I have used it on a few modified or reworked stocks and a couple of new unfinished ones, and had great results!

linseed oil works too, but in my experience it doesnt last as long as a tru oil finish.

Most likely, you need to have your rear brakes adjusted. If the e brake pedal/handle returns to original position there should be no slack in the cable, if the cable isnt floppy DONT tighten it.
