*$&@#!, blew a coolant hose!

Walk out the front door to have a cigarette and what do I see:

Coolant running from under my garage door

(insert long string of explatives here)

blew two hoses at the same time. Radiator to waterpump and waterpump to heater pipe.

(insert yet another long string of explatives here as well)

Just a frinedly reminder: check your coolant hoses every so often - mine were coming due soon as of two weeks ago....

Just thought I'd use this opportunity to show off the new lift I put in my backyard garage - makes getting to the water hoses just a little bit easier.

However, it does not help at all to reach the speed and reference sensors.

The garage has a 10' 6" height to the rafters (this was done by leaving the studs at the 10' length, with the two toe plates and two sill plates providing the extra 6"). The height of the posts is 6' 9".

With the lift a maximum elevation, I have 2 to 3 inches of room between the roof of the 944 and the bottom cord of the truss. When I install a ceiling (after the HVAC), I'll probably have to use the lift at a lower setting, but even then, I can stand fully erect under the car (I'm 6' 3").

The four post lift does allow you to store another vehicle under the lift - I also bought three polyethlene trays that fit under the engine, transmission, and rear end which would prevent any dripping of fluids on the car stored below.

The lift itself occupies about an 9' x 14' area, so you need at least another two feet on either side for room to walk around. As a reference, the garage door is 8' tall x 9' wide

The one I got is 110v. I've only had it a couple of weeks, but it has been a real nice addition to my garage - polishing is much easier, as I can now pick the vehicle up and don't have to bend over.

You can get more information at www.eagleequip.com (the model I have is SS-7000, which has a lift capacity of 7000 lb.)

P.S. You'll also find that it keeps the garage 'fridge stocked with beer - when your friends want to use it, charge them a 12 pack, and act real magnanamous when you share a couple cold ones with them!

AFJ - is it an odd coincidence that the hoses were adjacent to one another or is that the point of greatest stress
....or....

were those the two oldest hoses... I know you've only had this car a few months right?


I am amazed what the smallest weather changes here in florida (compaired to up north) do to the rubber in our cars.

Those hoses, along with the one leading from the head to the radiator are the ones under the greatest stress. I think it was a combination of the heat and age that did them in - they looked ok at the last belt check - a little soft. in less than a month they gave way. We seem a little worse for wear in the rubber department, but we do much better in the corrosion area.

And yes, I do walk on water - except it was luminescant yellow water (Porsche coolant - $20 a gallon - *****!)

and I like the lift professor!
