So a Facebook friend of mine sent me a couple photos last night of the damaged rotor inside his distributor with the following message. “Dude, WTF kinda s#!t is this?” I laughed when I read it and saw the photo, only to laugh harder just seconds later when he sent a message saying “Oops sorry wrong person. Sorry man ignore that.” to which I responded with some funny but inappropriate statements and then “I took the cap out of my dually and it had no button left in it. At all. It was so melted from the giant arch, that I am not sure how it ran so well!” We laughed about it and exchanged a few more messages, but it got me thinking about all the times I’ve went to do maintenance or repairs on a running car only to find something else messed up that you would think would have left it stranded. I know I’m not the only one, so lets hear about some of yours.
Broken rocker arms or valve springs? Parts barely hanging on for dear life? Things that should be full of lube but aren’t? Parts that fall apart as you remove them?
What you got?
Let us know.
