The majority will also be Li-ion powered at 3.6 to 9.0 volts. thanks anyway,really looking for a headlight alone because i have a 6v rechargable battery i wan...

Re: Stripped Drain Plug

You should be able to guarantee that there are no metal shavings in the oil pan. The only way is to remove and reinstall the oil pan.

As stated above, consider buying a new oil pan. It will be an easier and faster repair if the part is readily available.

There are many light(er) weight fiberglass ladders. Because they are nonconductive, electricians prefer them. That alone puts them in the realm of commercial use. Compared to fiberglass, an aluminum ladder of the same duty rating is lighter in weight, more rigid, impervious to UV damage, and less li...

It does say 4.5m. Pedestrian walkways are typically higher than road bridges as a safety measure.
