Give the poor guy a break . My brother drained his oil to do an oil change, forgot to put the new oil in. He still can't live it down. Jim

Re: Just incase others dont know.

I have to agree. It may sound funny to others, but there is nothing funny about destroying your engine because of a stupid mistake. I once built a VW engine, took my time and did everything right, got all the clearances spot on, and was about to put it in the car, when I discovered I had left out a critical internal part. Installing this part required tearing the whole engine down, and splitting the cases. I was pissed. I just let it set there for a couple of months while I debated whether to junk it and buy a storebought rebuilt engine, or tear it all down again. I had already spent several hundred on it, so one day, I finally decided to go ahead and start working on it. I was still pretty upset, but as I worked on it, my attitude changed, and I decided that I was going to do it even better the second time. It turned out great, but it sure caused me a lot of grief. Anybody can make a simple mistake. Fortunately this was my own engine, making a mistake like that at work that wasted that much time would have gotten me written up. Peace. Jerry.

Re: Just incase others dont know.

Oh my. Internet forum rubbernecking. I didn't see that coming.

Jerry, what part did you leave out? It'll bug me 'till I know, then I probably won't care anymore.

"Well, thank goodness that's finished. Hmmm. I wonder what this domed aluminum cup thing is..."
