Alot of the big power diesel guys fix there boots buy cleaning the tubes real well with brake clean/alcohol and then spray hairspray on the boot and slides right on. Then the hairspray dries like glue.

um, this little 4 banger is not a big power diesel motor, and running the boots as is should work fine.

any remedy for hoses popping off is always a good idea. the biggest thing is to make sure there is no oil on the boot or flange. You can tighten it at much as you want, but it will always come off if it has a lubricant on it, usually the tighter the worse it is. Typically cleaning with a contact type cleaner is good enough after it dries, sometimes more is required. These little motors can be a real pain to keep hoses on sometimes.

No new snow this weekend, maybe late next week. You guys got a bendder at your shop? I need to bend a couple bars up to put the front half of my cageback together.

Damn, I saw a JD2 model 3 with a stand and 1.75" die for $350 on craigslist on wednesday, and I didnt get off my ass to go get it. I prefer some of the other models cause JD dies only go to 180*
