OK, here's mine.
While holding down the ctrl button on your keyboard, turn the scroll wheel on your mouse, it will make the writing bigger on your screen.
I know this ain't gonna win me any prizes, but I'll bet a lot of you old farts (like me) will find it useful here.
OK, let the real tech begin, I can't wait.

Believe it or not, my cat taught me that. I was scrolling and my cat stepped on the keyboard and it made the letters real big. Only problem was, I didn't know what she stepped on and had to go to a PC forum and ask. Nobody else seemed to know either, after a couple days though someone figured it out, thank God, it was really driving me nuts.
Now enjoy it, glad I was able to teach you something, but lets get on to the real tech stuff now, let's not clutter this thread with more about this tip. (but I'll take $100 if anyone insists )

Does putting in a new water at the house count? That is what I have been up to lately.

The actual codes they now have for these things are kind of over the top - 18" stands, bonding wires on the pipes and gas line, expansion tanks, insulation on the COLD pipe up to 5' away from heater - WTF? When the hell did popping in a new water heater get so damn complicated?

If you think thats trick, try holding control, alt, and any arrow key on a (xp running laptop or desk). Of course you will have to read the rest of the item the opposite direction from the arrow you pushed to get it back.

boost reference edelbrock AFB carbs

This is how I modified my 2 500 Edelbrock AFB carbs on my blown 354 Hemi.

The modification allows the carbs to get the true vacuum signal under boost. Without boost ref carbs the motor can be making boost and pulling a vacuum on the base of carb (blower sucking) and the metering rods are pulled down and lean out the mixture, when you need the opposite. This happens most when your throttle plates are not completely wide open and your blower is just starting to make boost,

Machined up a 5/8" aluminum base plate, cross drill the plate with long 5/32 drill. Drill and tap base for 1/8" NPT thread. JB weld the notch in secondaries so vacuum signal will only pull from blower manifold. get a 4 hole carb gasket and punch new holes to reach power valve ports, ( in middle of throttle holes) Plum with 1/4" tubing. It works very well tested it with 2 vacuum gauges.
