The only real downside of quartz or granite is the weight for a bus.  If you live near a Menards they often sell their quartz countertops for $30 a square foot if you like one of the basic three colors.  I will put the Menards quart countertops in my house some day.  Total cost will be under $1,500.  A bit more if I hire a contractor to help install.

Hey Scott...
I had the same question.
My crossover tube is above the fuel pump, but there is a water bypass tube between the thermostat housings that is in front of the fuel pump on my 8V71.

I'm the first to admit the entire gear ratio issue is one I know little about. But I am confused by a few comments related to top speed.
I don't have the 8v92, but I do have the HT740. When I'm on the highway, (I-95 especially) and listening to AC/DC, I can EASILY get to 90MPH before I even notice the speedometer. The engine runs beautifully and I've never had a temperature issue. How is this possible?

Please note: I do indeed pay very close attention to driving, and ALWAYS know the location of every vehicle sharing the road with me. Those of you familiar with I-95 will understand Smiley



Better check your speedometer the MCI 8 had 3:73 gears with 12r 22.5 tires and the 740 is is a 1:1 ratio 90 mph is a little fast for that setup

As an experienced woodworker I would like to convert my Formica countertops to Corian or Solid Surface. However I have been frustrated in trying to buy it since I am not a trained/registered installer. Has anyone bought direct from the overstock site "solid surface.com"? Moreover, has anyone gone to their AZ or south FL locations to look at/purchase? Has anyone bought on-line and had their goods freighted in?
Are there other sources for the hobbyist?
Thanks in advance for the feedback!

I know it's not the pump it is strong, pumps a good stream under pressure with just the starter and when I finally got the run switch to latch on the rear start it never shut down again.I don't know how the system is wired I didn't see any alarmstats on the engine only senders

I went through the process of checking out the shutdown to see if that was the problem and Ed told me it was working after I guided him through a few tests.

Thanks again Cliff

We used Formica Solid Surface.  Same as Corian just Formicas brand.  We just really liked one of the colors Formica had that Corian did not carry.

We also got a solid surface sink. Its nice because its one smooth surface from the countertops right into the sink with zero seems.

I strongly reccomend not using a solid surface sink though.  I did not realize how pourus the surface is.  And now 4 years later there are quite a few stains that are tough to get out without sanding it down.

Here are some pics -
