well. i got the autozone guy to reconsider. i left a ten dollar cash deposit on the lone die. the manager walked in on the transaction and started to bitch. i was tellin him the cost of the whole kit is 90.00, i just wanted to borrow the lone die out of the set of like twenty.
I reminded him that the garage i part time at is one of his clients, and the three clerks there know me. i even bought the nuts there, overpriced as hell too. just to take some heat off the clerk.
it looks good really, it might just hold. i took the fly wheel back off and ran the thread all the way to the taper hardcore, 3/8ths.i re ran the die three times, making the threads a little deeper each time. i put the hi temp thread lock all over. ran it ten minutes, shut it off, just to heat it all up and test the new nut.
looks good but i think i should get a new woodruff key. mine seems to be rounding off at the top from the mishaps, damn freaky size. they are nazi's. payday, i will scower the far reaches of the deepest interweb to find a new one. treats and junkyard are a no go, out of stock.
it would have been way to easy to have a standard metric or other key, i could just get at the local hardware store for 33 cents.
