Our AutoZone got rid of major brands for filters and some oils. Their major brand is now STP. ::)

I have that EXACT tool maker's hacksaw.
My father in law was the master toolmaker at North American Aviation.
He passed it on to me many many years ago.

I have several sizes of those "red" handled Knipex's.
They work and adjust A+ for me.

Just this morning I priced 2 rotors on Rock Auto. $38.00 shipping. $10.00 more at O,Reilly‚Äôs but saved $20 on shipping. I always look for a place that have car guys working there.

Tuesday now, but kinda rough weekend for me.  Friday Mandy had her gallbladder removed, for the next two weeks I have to do the heavy lifting of Sam. Including 330 in the morning when he's hungry! Now that he's crawling he's a hand full and keeps you busy.

Friday night I installed a new light kit for the celling fan in the kitchen since the old one blew.  Then I attempted to install ba ceiling fan in the bedroom. After all together, the fan worked but lights didn't.

Next day I tried wiring it differently then nothing would work including the outlets in the wall. Also had power on my common.

Later Saturday night my cell phone died.

At least I got to ride the motorcycle Sunday.

Had an electrician work on it today, had wires melted in the hall light causing the problem.

No knowledge here of RzRs.  What is the connection between a mud puddle and a broken clutch damper?

I have Advance, O'Reillys, NAPA and AutoZone all within two miles of my house.  Had good luck with everyone but AutoZone.  They just always strike me as being unprofessional and geared to those in their early twenties.  That's always been my impression.
Same here, no knowledge of parts and don't just ask for a part number, it throws them all off the look up routine.  That's today's store, I created a near panic when I went to Advance to take advantage of their Mobile 1 oil/filter special and did not want a filter only the oil for my motorcycle.  I buy OEM auto filters and the special was for a Purolator so I just wanted oil and it took 30 minutes to figure out a way to ring it up. panicx

When Advance Auto bought CarQuest they closed the only store that had a real parts guy.

If it's something I can plan on doing I always order my parts on line. Better parts and better prices. If it's something I gotta have right now I grit my teeth and shop the local "parts" houses.
