  • Current Site Statistics

    Well, I typically post a new message on the home page about every 2 weeks, but not much has happened recently which would warrant a post. So, I decided to make something up. Anyway, just wanted to post some interesting stats, which I have been trying to watch since we've switched to the new forum software. So here goes!

    Tapatalk usage - In the past 10 days, only one person has accessed the site via Tapatalk. Guess who that person was? Me! For those that have no idea what I am talking about, check out this post.

    Site Visits - Over the past month, we average just under 800 visits a day. This is actually an increase from the old setup, mainly because I think we are indexed better on the search engines. That being said, 60% of the traffic is from search engines, and the remaining 40% is split equally between links from other sites and people accessing the site directly via the URL. We get the most traffic on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the least traffic on Saturday.

    Visiting Countries - Its pretty easy to realize that most of our traffic comes from the US, Canada, and Mexico, in that order. The rest of the top 10 is quite interesting, though. Australia, the UK, Poland, German, Sweden, Puerto Rico, and Finland round out the top 10. Interestingly enough, the number of pages viewed per visit doesn't correlate much to the previous list. That list is as follows: Saudi Arabia, Columbia, Austria, Israel, Kuwait, Qatar, Norway, Finland, Slovakia, and Honduras. Does that mean we are popular in the Middle East?

    Browsers and OS - Only 49% of the visitors use Internet Explorer, while 36% use Firefox, 7% use Chrome, and 6% use Safari. 90% of users are on Windows (3 visits in the last month have been from Windows ME?!?), 5% are on a Mac, and 2% use Linux.

    I guess that's it. I wish there was a way to track the usage of the chat box, as I have contemplated getting rid of it. But I know there are people who use it regularly. Just not sure of the overall benefit of it. I know it makes page loads somewhat longer. If anyone has any comments on the site, perhaps ways we can improve it (besides adding more content - I'm relying on you guys for that, and you are failing miserably), let me know. I would love to see the site continue to grow, instead of basically sit stagnant like we are now. We continue to gain new members every day, but we also loose around the same amount of users each day as well. I want to find a way to keep new users active on the site, but I'm not sure how to do it.

      Monochrome display FTW. Now if it only had a web browser....
      Google Netscape for Win 3.0... it's out there and I bet it would fit on a floppy. I ran 3.1 on a old skool AMD K6-300. It was fast compared to the old Compaq 80386/12MB ram. Those where the days. 16 colors... A little better then mono; what I would have given for 256-colors on that compaq. I had a 80286 in 95' that had a 768k video card and DOS porn. I was about 12 then and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

      I only have the freeware version but I did use it on the 2nd of the month. Wonder why that didn't hit the stats?

  • Saginaw power steering pump - Resealing....
    davida1_hiwaay_net
    Hi folks! Sorry I've been offline for quite some time. Been working overseas and it's been crazy! Anyway I finally got around to fixing the leaking steering pump on my 84 Century. As far as I know the PUMP is original to the 1987 year engine (which i bought as a core engine). For quite some time, it has leaked oil slowly, so that if the car sits for a month or so, all the oil is gone out of the steering pump. So, today I fixed it. I was quoted a high sum of money for a "rebuilt" pump of dubious quality. Forget the chinese knock-off ones. The seal kit was about $15. This is a picture-intense thread, because that's the best way to explain the steps. There is nothing hard about this, but you do need a couple special tools (pulley remove / install tool, and drill press). The puller is available for rental from Advance Autp Parts. There are several variants of this pump. The main difference is the shape of the reservoir. The repair procedure is the same for them all, aside from the reservoir removal could vary a little. The pump...

  • LQ1 Service Bulletin 57-61-09 Lifter tick (cold)
    Schurkey
    Dug up the GM Service Bulletin for "Lifter tick when cold", 57-61-09. '91 to '95 LQ1 (VIN X)

    http://mymonte.com/discussion/topic/...e-%2357-61-09/ The parts kit has been discontinued by GM long ago. My quest was to find sources for those parts; and complete the procedure on my '93 Lumina Euro 3.4 which was torn apart to replace the rear head gasket. There are three critical part numbers in the GM service kit (aside from gaskets and O-rings) required to perform this operation. Two of the three are readily available in the aftermarket--the 10-32 set screws, and the cup plugs. I hadda buy a box of cup plugs and a batch of set screws; if you can't find 'em locally, send me a PM. All gaskets 'n' seals are readily available, and are included in the gasket set I needed to replace the head gaskets (Fel-Pro HS9113PT1 Head Set.) This leaves one item that is expensive to source--the replacement thrust plates. Reading the bulletin, and...

  • How to read turbo maps...
    Driver_10
    There have been a couple of guys who wanted to know how to read a compressor map. Hopefully, I haven't made any mistakes this time (unlike the last) and this will prove to be useful to you in your understanding of a compressor map. Reading a turbo map isn't as difficult as it looks. The map displays 4 key pieces of information. A. It displays the pumping efficiency of the compressor (meaning the amount of actual air that it pumps in contrast to the amount of heat that's created while wasting energy) B. The physical amount of air that it can move in pounds per min (just like it says, how much air per/ min) C. The pressure ratio of the air being pumped (that is, the ratio of pressure that it is capable of that pumping in contrast to the ...

  • 2012 V6 Product Guide
    bszopi
    GM has recently released their 2012 Product Guide, which details all of the engines and transmissions used in production vehicles, as well as the specs of the engines. Several years ago, we used to outline these updates, but have been lacking in getting the information out for the past few years. In an effort to try to keep the site up on the most recent releases from GM, I am trying to get this information back into articles again. With that said, on to the information.
