many years ago I was changing an engine in a VW bug. Got it all put back together and was driving it--went to shift gears and suddenly no power to the wheels. Ended up a 13 mm
wrench, left in the flywheel casing, jumped up and would not let the clutch disengage. It was sitting by the throwout bearing all nice and pretty--like it belonged there!!! Well at least I got my wrench back!!!
And off subject--my throttle pinky is doing well--had a pin put in it on 1-2-2009, so at least another 2-4 weeks off. Just got back from visiting my Mom in Lake Worth FL, and my brother and his daughter were in from Thailand. So I got to see everyone. I should break a finger every year just before the holidays, and when I run out of fingers there are always toes!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL and happing wrenching. I can't wait to be able to use my hand. I have a fluid change to do and add a tach, a Bad Boy WOLO horn (couldn't find the chrome one in stock at the Harbot Freight stores however it is online and in the catalog, may have to order it $49)--also stage 1 exhaust to put on. And thanks to these posts--I'll sweep under the R* before starting and make sure no one puts anything extra under it--you meanies!!!! I was laughing at the extra bolts!!!!
