Bored buying - blue sring and fuel additive

Just bought my blue spring upgrade and a bottle of optilube. Looking at the link from ficmrepair.com it looks to be pretty easy but is it required to drain coolant.

I didn't remove my radiator hose either. A diverse toolbox is your friend here. 1/4" drive stuff is handy.

Oh, we're glad to help you spend your money. Tools are always a good thing to have. I just bought some more today.

I'm trying to find a post on here about a craftsman 12v impact wrench. I have a lot of sockets and wrenches. But the power wrench excites me.

Yea. It is literally bored spending. My work is little a 1/4 a mile down the road and I have access to an air co.pressor and a whole **** load of power tools. I work at capri camper manufacture and have access to the shop and all its tools. I'd just rather not pack my cooler :p

Also the blue spring deals w fuel. When I crack that cover open is fuel gonna go everywhere. And putting it back on is there a special procedure.
