Talked to Chris and we'll just try at it tomorrow morning. My daughter has a soccer game a 9 so I'll head out after that is over.


In other news, hole in my tire is on the side wall, so I need a new tire, they broke a wheel stud on the SVT also, and I think I just seriously hurt my back giving my son a bath, WTH is up with how things are going?

Yeah we spent most of our time finding the reverse Torx bit for the VCT gear, that is a rare and hard socket to find.

yeah, it is quite easy to strip down a torx bolt, so I agree.

Just means you had put the bolt on to the Cam with too much torque.
