what would lower gears due to gas mileage which is what this thread is all about john higher numerically lower would increase it. roy apologies my bad the above is wrong!! trying to do too many things at once. roy .

it is not the same system budd and saying that it is just makes you look foolish. if what you say is true then the only way that you could compress a brake caliper piston back into its bore would be to open up the brake bleeder and we both know that you do not have to do that it may be a good idea but not a requirement. nobody else in the group agrees with you here on this point including max so that alone should tell you something. the principles of operation are the same tom and in basic design they are the same.. did you know that some hd clutch systems use a 2 pound residual valve like a disk brake to reduce the possibility of air / water contamination it uses a slightly heavier return spring to compensate for the pressure. and if the pressure exceeds this extra 2 pounds this system will still vent it off to the reservoir just like the ones without it so what is your point btw you never had a master cylinder piston that couldnt retract properly have you like i reminded john the system is already screwed up. it is not a perfect text book scenario tom. first of all budd you dont know what in the system is screwed up. it could be and probably is just a bad bearing and nothing more it happens. it could also be operator error or just excessive usage as we discussed. maybe there is something else wrong with the system and if so then the air would again not be the cause of the problem it would be the defective component and the problem would exist whether there was air in it or not. as for foolish appearances tom that would be anyone that doubts the experiences of a older more experienced person and discards them out-of-hand for the simple reason that person is older grayer more experienced the answer isnt found in some text book disagrees with some popular answercorrect or not or . . . . pick as many as you want. just because you are older does not mean that you know more and to think so is foolish. i dont dismiss you or your input out of hand but that does not mean that you are always right. it does seem budd that once you have an opinion you are correct and if someone does not agree with you they are wrong simple as that damages your credibility take it from someone that knows. you made a claim that air in the system would always cause this problem and that is incorrect regardless of what the popular answer is. tom id like to know who made you official spokesman for this group. at this time anyone that disagrees with toms claim of being group spokesman and that no one supports me as a person they may post a rebuttal. where in the hell did i claim to be the spokesman for anything i simply made a comment that was true and nobody in the list denied it including max. dont turn this into one of your diatribes. i can see where this is starting to go and like i said i have no intent of going there. -- if at first you dont succeed youre not cut out for skydiving .

this is an 88 jeep comanche its got a great motor and i wouldent be selling it if i wasent moving its got new parts and records. i havent organised the parts and records list to put online yet but if your interested let me know. im only asking $600 because its ugly mostly its going for parts and it was driven up till about 1.5-2 weeks ago we have other vehicals information jeep inline 6 cyl realy good alot of new parts planed on keeping it 5 spd manual tranny 2 wd i know that sucks 183k miles this is my moms truck but she got a bigger truck pics can be seen here http//www.cyberdigitalsolutions.net/sale/ wolf001@gmail.com thanks gary .

i was just curious if the readings the computer take are from a flow rate meter or some other method of determining mpg when i use it on the hwy i get a pretty accurate reading when compared to how much fuel vs miles on the odometer. however when i use it around town it will read say 15.2 mpg and my fuel calculations will be 1 to 1.5 mpg higher. thanks in advance .

on the pines bender in the example the pistons have orifices to allow the wing die to follow the bending action. pressure from the pump is applied to both sides of the piston with the extend line having up 30% higher flow to maintain contact with the pipe. in this example the cylinder had been just rebuilt and was being installed. the millwright left the job for lunch and someone tossed a cigarette butt in the oily mess on the floor below the cylinder. the cylinder was connected but no oil had flowed yet in a systems test. i figured that the cylinder had to be empty or near empty to build up that much pressure and like i thought the system was closed allowing the pressure to build up. tom if equal pressure is applied on both sides of a piston which way does it move it doesnt but who said that the pressure was equal the key word here budd is pressure something that will not happen in an open system. but its not an open system. yes it is at rest. the diagram in the link provided clearly demonstrates that it is regardless of your beliefs. now again there are flow controls in the circuit the front and rear of the piston are interconnected and the fire would have heated the retract side of the piston first. if you say so i wasnt there. as for being interconnected i bet that there is a valve between the sides and that it was closed. nope. the hydraulic pump applied pressure to the wing cylinders equally when it was running. the fire happened while it was being changed over to bend a different size / type of exhaust pipe. the pump pressure line teed to each wing but the rest of the system from the tee was still filled with hydraulic oil just the one cylinder was empty. btw bleeding that system is a ten minute job . . .ten minutes of bending cycles without pipe. since i was not there and have no schematic of the plumbing of this system there is no point arguing about it and the fact that it is a very different type of system in every way makes what happened to it a non-issue. come on why did it do what it did like i said before due to a pressure build up something that does not happen in the modern open at rest hydraulic clutch of the ops vehicle. tom why is it important to bleed the air from a braking system if you dont know all the reasons then you dont know hydraulic clutch systems. lol complete bs. i was the apprentice millwright on the job that day. when we heard the fire alarm we went to help put it out and thats when i saw the bent pipe. the opposing wing die had not moved even though it is in parallel in the hydraulic circuit. not seeing the system i cannot make any valid comment on why it didnt move. but you have anyway. not really i just brought out the point that the pipe bender and hydraulic clutch are two very different systems something that you refuse to realize. and you forget the basics of hydraulic systems and that any hydraulic system can have the same troubles as any other. once again you are incorrect. while the basics of how they work may be the same the problems that each type can have and how they effect the system can be very different. this is basic stuff here budd. lol while the vehicle could catch on fire the combustion part no vehicles hydraulic clutch that i am aware of would be in a closed mode at rest and i know that the dodge is not since i have one so at least in this case and since the op did not complain about hard shifting a symptom of air in the system air in the lines was probably not the cause here. tom are you going to start this kind of stuff again i supposed now you are the expert in all hydraulics system malfunctions as well . . . . lol i never claimed to be an expert in all hydraulic systems or all malfunctions with them but i do understand this type of system. as do i and ive the experience of fixing those malfunctions. really which modern vehicles cars did you make these repairs on as for me starting anything not at all. right . . . . you are simply wrong here and i am not the only one saying it and i am not bashing you for it those days are done. unfortunately you both are wrong is saying im wrong. i guess that when you say both you are really reffering to john marsh monster max and myself. while you may have significant experience in closed hydraulic systems this is not a closed system at rest and many of the symptoms that you have experienced with them simply do not apply here. the address supplied by marsh monster http//www.babcox.com/editorial/bf/bf70238.htm clearly describes the common hydraulic clutch system used in modern vehicles and as long as the system is open any time it is at rest no pressure can build up due to expansion. sorry but its not an open system. sure theres a small relief orifice which has been used even in the earli
