I remind you, Good Sir, of my recent medal...
I cemented my bronze medal in the dumbass club today

Doing a front wheel bearing on the E83

I needed to press the bearinginto the hub,and didn’t have a good arbor plate or bushing setup. I measured the needed press fit at 1 7/16”, 13/8 might work, 11/2 definitely too big

Jumped in the car to go to Lowe’s to buy a socket with the right OD, but then realized my calipers were buried under toolboxes. In a dim glow of brilliance, I grabbed the old bearing and headed to Lowe’s, thinking I ll just match it up.

Well, Lowe’s had no socket close as they had dropped the large sockets.

So, there I was, thinking, let’s work the problem. How can I come up with something the same diameter as the old bearing in my hand...


...thenI realized everyone in Lowe’s was slowclapping .....

just wondering: could a bad plug ruin a good coil pack?

I think this is one of the few cases I got the horns =P


Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
