When you are pulling and pulling on an outboard motor cord and a pretty lady asks you if you hooked up the fuel tank, make sure you answer her in a kind manner even if your arms are tired and you are out of breath. That way, when it turns out she was right...you don't have to apologize for being a jerk AND a dumb *ss.

After a long day of working on a bike in the Man Castle, you go back in the house to wash up.
You're out of that Orange hand cleaner stuff and soap just isn't cutting it, since you may as well have stuck your hands in a container of bearing grease, then tried to wash them off in the used oil from the oil change you just did.
Your mind drifts back to the garage, focusing on that can of foaming Engine Degreaser that worked so well on your cylinders, and you think how much easier it will make your life.

Well, it won't.
Especially if you have a career that depends on having soft hands.

Soft Hands

So there was no "happy ending"?

I have my diploma, but I won't get Certification from the National Board for another couple weeks. Therefore, I'm not yet a Certified Therapist. Masseur is generally used to refer to people who don't train extensively in various techniques, so I wrote massager as a joke.

Simple Green works. I spray it on, rub, wash...clean as a whistle.

Reminds me of a friend that was Scuba diving in the UK in a dry-suit.. it was cold and he was working at 30 meters down. when he came up he was cursing a blue streak like no one I have ever heard, there was more profanity than on a month of Jo Momma. The reason?
Apparently it was a very expensive dry-suit and was on loan, and my friend had gotten a bout of explosive diarrhea at 30m down...

Here's a tip for me...

DO ensure that all pieces to be wirebrushed with a 2500-rpm drill are secured to a work surface, clamp or vise, particularly when you're sure they're too big to move.

Also, DO check downrange.

This helps ensure that the three special order replacement windows are in place to act as a trap for the future projectile being wirebrushed.

Don't TIG weld in Flip-Flops. No matter how good you think you are, it only takes a tiny bit of slag to hit your foot and make you jump into the ceiling.

...this will never be a good idea...

...if your 'older', 'wiser' brother decides to braze the crack in his truck's gas tank, stop him.

Even if he 'washed it out'.

Oh, and make him do it OUTSIDE the basement if he won't listen to reason.

...or you'll be paying mom & dad to replace all the window glass in that room.

Do not, under any circumstances, when the clutch cover is removed from your 1985 Honda VF1000R, give into curiousity and decide that it would be "neat" to use the starter button to see what all of those gears look like spinning around.

(clutch cover has bosses that hold the opposite side of the pins in which some of these gears ride on...no clutch cover = cracked bosses on engine cases) That is THE stupidest thing (mechanically) I ever hope to do.

and from a friend of mine.. seriously, it wasn't me...really

Do not, regardless of how "empty" the oil-sight window appears to be on your '77 Kawasaki KZ650, continue to add oil 'til you think its "full enough".

and then do not ride 60 miles to my house with what I estimate to be between 6-8 quarts of oil.
The back of his bike looked like he dumped gallons of oil all over it (including tire). I asked him if it felt a little "squirelly" in corners, but he said "no"..lol

As you may have guessed, it turns out the oil-sight window wasn't empty!!!, but "black" from an abundance of oil..
I do NOT know how he didn't hydro-lock, or bend internal engine parts, but I drained 4 quarts of oil from the engine, another quart from the airbox and runners and that just about brought her to where she was spose to be. I then did a 2 minute burnout in my dirt driveway to "grind" the embedded oil off the rear tire so he didn't die on his ride home.


this is a great thread...
