I recently purchased a Chevy 1961 Apache Fleetside pickup and I'm restoring it including all new electrical harnesses. After installing it, the truck won't start. It cranks, but doesn't have spark. Also, I'm not getting lights or accessories. What is the problem?

Question found in Trucks
If you are certain that the wiring is correct, you may want to look into the grounding system. There are two critical grounding points due to the rubber motor and transmission mounts. One would be a very clean bond with the negative side of the battery and the motor and a common link between it and another good clean one on the frame. This would explain the lack of voltage because it may not be a complete circuit. Good luck.

Me, my mother and my dog just moved out of my grandparents house, my grandparents miss my dog so we take her back for visits...my dog is having a hard time adjusting to the new house. Is taking her back for visits going to confuse her? does she know which ones home?

Discuss this question

Question found in Dogs In General
The dog may be confused, especially if you are returning him to a more familiar place. If you leave him at your new home during errands, etc., he will eventually get used to it. You will probably need to stop taking him to the grandparent's for a short while until he gets used to a new routine at the new home. You will then be able to bring him again for visits. Good luck.

My child wont eat. He is 2 years of age help

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
It is possible his teeth are bothering him. If he's putting his hands or other things in his mouth it is not unheard of even at 2. Another would be that he is getting tired of his usual diet and needs more variety. Other than that, he could be coming down with the seasonal bug that plagues us all this time of year. I am not a doctor but have been around a few 2 years old. Good luck.

How do I control my teenage sons bad behaviour?

Discuss this question

Question found in Parenting & Family In General
Make some rules that are acceptable to both of you. If he is rebellious and doesn't even try, remind him of how hard it will be to drive a car when the time comes, for example. Let him know that he is your responsibility and if it gets out of control, then he will be washing his own clothes, cooking his own meals and you'll be sending him to the couch to sleep since you need his room for storage now. Phone service, cable, friends, activities, girls, money, (get a job), all of it is within your grasp and can be controlled if you will take the initiative and get creative with your new authority. Good luck to you.

Why communication towers are painted red and white?

Question found in Science In General
Not all of them are. Only specific minimum heights are required by the FCC and FAA to be painted these colors or else a pilot may not see them.

Does the external temperature affect how a freezer works?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
Most of us rednecks are living proof that it will work. Just look out on the porch. The outside temperature will in fact cause the freezer to work harder in the summer. It is typically designed to work at room temperature within a range of approximately 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Much more heat will work it pretty hard and the cool weather will not hurt it as long as it doesn't get extremely cold and wet.

Is a Juvenile allowed to call home if arrested by a Ocoee police officer?

Discuss this question

Question found in Human Rights
Yes but it could take a few hours or if arrested late, possibly the next day. This will also depend on how much info they (police)will need and the seriousness of the charges. Usually allowed 1 phone call minimum within a reasonable amount of time.

Is it legal to send letters to wealthy people asking for money just because I am poor and are desperate to get money and hope someone out there is nice?

Discuss this question

Question found in Legal Other
If you are one of those idiots who keeps emailing me to deposit money for you and lies you tell in order to get sympathy..........then no. If you have a legitimate problem with health, disaster, etc., go to one of the many fine organizations like the Salvation Army, the government, etc., like the rest of us would if we needed help. Friends and family are also helpful if you have them and treat them right.

There are many honest people who work very hard for their money. Giving it away is something most people will do for an organization like Salvation Army because they do help people down on their luck. If you have a real problem and it's not just because you never have enough money, but you are capable of earning an honest living, then you should rethink your priorities. Start your own business, get a grant and go to school.

I'm having trouble in understanding what security I need to be safe on the Internet. Can anyone give me advice on a low budget or is free security better?

Discuss this question

Question found in Internet In General
I use ccleaner, hijackthis and a couple of other utilities along with Norton Security. Norton can be found at symmantec.com and will cost a little each year, but you can upgrade online and be relatively secure. The others I mentioned are free and they can be found at download.com. There is nothing wrong with the free anti-everything software on such sites if you choose to use them, I only use Norton because it is simple, powerful, doesn't eat resources and they have been a good product for me since 1995. Here's a basic list of free software at download.com, that can help get you started until you find what you like:

Browser-----Mozilla Firefox
Email-------Thunderbird, Incredimail, (read reviews)
Antivirus----Zone Alarm, AVG, (read reviews)
Firewall-----Windows(should already be installed), read reviews on
download.com about the latest and best if you don't want to use
windows
Spyware----hijackthis, ccleaner,spybot, and many more, (read reviews)
