Re: A reply to Gross and a totally mundane question
Thanks for the reply Phil. So I'm going to do some bench presses, get a great big long
lever and see what I can break. BTW it's not mentioned in the 'manual' so I assume this
is a normally threaded bolt, ie. clockwise. Rule of thumb and all that. If this is the
case, the 'perversity' could have simply been countered by 'reversity,' ie. thread the
thing counter-clockwise. I certainly do not know what the final torque would be after
starting and running the engine would be after 100k miles, but I'm no engineer.
Mississippi John Hurt sings a song that I really do appreciate. He is a locomotive
engineer who has a spat with his wife, he goes to work fumin', gets the train up to
speed, startin' to feel better, comes across a flock of sheep on the track and has to
slow the sucker down and stop. "God damn them sheep."
