Reminds me of one of the most frustrating CCF threads ever.

The OP REFUSED to consider anything other than pliers for tube removal. While I was angry, I just chose to stop helping rather than go ballistic.

Here's the trigger quote" "Thanks for the suggestions on the tool but I'm gonna tape up my channel locks and not be ham-fisted about it.

"hot smiley

Oddly coincidental that he used the word "Ham-fisted" considering the name of Dave's fictitious tool company. smiling smiley

I know we all have to start somewhere but...

I just read a thread where a Corvair owner set his torque wrench at 100 foot-pound to tighten up his leaky oil pan bolts. The manual said 100 inch-pound of course.

He is now asking for recommendations for multiple thread repairs because I guess he did not realize he was stripping them one after the other. sad smiley

I saw that too. Looks like he has his work cut out for him! I do have a couple of the tools from Hamhand myself though!

Is Tom the only one that noticed it is a VW or is it such a common method that no one else saw the need to comment?

I haven't done a VW engine for 30 years but always wondered how the expandable pushrod tubes seemed to work okay. The spring loaded ones in the picture just above I can see working well but the stock ones didn't seem to have much going for them, although I never had trouble with them. I had a dozen or so VWs back in the day when they were very cheap.

I was talking with a car buddy the other day and we got to wondering just what percentage of people understand how things work, let alone know how to fix things.

I suspect it's a small number.

Maybe he was using the new JamHandi, shake-proof, zinc coated, torque to yield bolts?

It's called "Mechanical / Technical Aptitude" less have it as the years go by.As far as fixing... training can supply the needed knowledge..

I think the full name of the company is the "I.M. Hamhand" tool company.

You are only responsible for passing along enough info to your offspring to allow them a choice. Sending kids off to drive on their own should involve showing where the oil dipstick and filler cap are located, how to check tire pressures. Of course you should explain when and why those are necessary.(Include radiator and coolant fill and indicators for water cooled cars). Beyond that, they will either be interested in how things work, or not.

I did a lot of stupid stuff when I was young and dumb including pliers on Corvair pushrod tubes, I couldn't see another way at the time and all my tools fit in one box. For the most part I learned from my mistakes but stupid still creeps in, although usually it's I know better but I still...
One thing that gets better is a feel for fasteners and an awareness of the materials, like something threaded into aluminum. I suppose that feel comes from ruining things in the past and the dread of having to repair them. That goes for loosening as well as tightening.
I agree with Craig's frustration when you try to talk to someone who is not listening. I hope I can be a good listener.

Welders use brass hammers. They look a lot like cutting torches.
