Don’t want to hi jack the thread, but good reading. What is the lash setting on these beasts? Stock cam or modified make a difference?

Re: Tired of sitting around

The paint or powder coat is thick and will do all kinds of funny things when you first tighten the lugs. Trim the paint off the countersink and all is good. Off the wheel, not the lug nuts.

Don’t forget to lightly stone or counter sink your lug nut mounting surfaces to prevent cracking and chipping out the paint on those pretty rims.

Re: Tired of sitting around

What’s the consensus on bending the hub cap tabs? Punch and hammer? Dab of silicone to keep from rattling or will they be tight enough just bending?

Re: Tired of sitting around

Biggest pain is getting the valve stem started in the hole. Cannot find my cable tool to fish it through . The rest are going good now once I got my groove. Gone now cause I sat down 😳

Re: Tired of sitting around

Awesome studio Mark We just went into lockdown at midnight tomorrow in Ohio, don’t know what is different between that and now though. I am not retired, have my own electrical machine control business and need to work. Customers are canceling spending money till this blows over except for breakdowns...

Tired of sitting around

And worrying about the universe. I’ve been putting this off for a while because it’s been cold and I don’t like changing tires. If I get somewhere without getting mad I will post the results. Wish me luck

Re: Watching the Delta planes .

We canceled our flights for a work trip in Dallas the last 2 weeks. Rented a car and drove from Cincinnati. Turned the rental in last night about 10pm and the airport parking lot was full. Lots of people still out and about.

I think most are making light of the toilet paper hoarding, not the virus. I am very concerned and serious about the virus. We all need to hope it lessons with the warmer weather coming and this will let us get a handle on it.
