    Fuel lines

    Smokey Yunick, owner of Daytona's Best Damn Garage in Town, was a perpetual thorn in the side of NASCAR in general, and Bill France in particular. Yunick was perhaps best known for interpreting what the rule book said—or, perhaps, didn't say. In 1968, he said NASCAR specified how big a fuel tank could be, but he noticed no one said how big the fuel line could be. Instead of a half-inch fuel line, Yunick created a two-inch fuel line that was 11 feet long, and held five gallons of gas. Another Smokey Yunick story: NASCAR mandated how much a gas tank could hold, which Yunick once circumvented by placing a basketball in the tank and inflating it with air. NASCAR checked the tank's capacity and cleared it. Then, when no one was looking, Yunick deflated the basketball.

    Oil Leak Help

    Rig it up so you can crank it over (or even better, start 'er up) on the floor and watch to see where it comes from.

    So sorry to heat that. Elvis, my black Shepard (pictured). Had him for 12 1/2 years.

    little Hit and Miss going on here

  5. Mavis Tires has a note printed in red ink that you need to return to their shop after you put 25 miles on your car after they install new tires so they can retorque the lugs. Their policy is that you cannot just torque them once and expect it it remain torqued, it must be retorqued after 25 miles. Needless to say, the mechanics just slam the wheels on and smash the lugs with the impact wrench in no particular order and lay on it for several seconds after full torque.
