A different type of oil down
I would like to begin this post by stating that who ever gave the Easy Out Screw Extractor its name committed the biggest case of false advertising in history. Calling these things Easy Out is an oxymoron if ever there was one. With that said, thanks to all those who suggested that we try using them to get our broken bolt out, as well as the other tips and suggestions. As it turns out, we invested way too much time and energy trying to remove the errant bolt and ultimately decided that since it didn’t want to be removed, it could just stay put. We simply drilled two more holes and attached the zinc with new bolts. Take that broken bolt! After all, we needed to get that engine back in and hooked up so that we could focus on more important things, like carnival.
If you can’t beat ‘em, go around ‘em.
We’ll swap the long bolts for some shorter ones after we go to the store.
Now, onto the important stuff… J’Ouvert! I knew we changed our engine oil for a reason!
We got up at O-dark-30 for this?
Some the the Grenada Hash House Harriers group.
It’s no surprise at all that these guys are out here for this craziness.
Nope, not just motor oil.
John and Donelle wisely avoided the motor oil too.
On our way home. It’s time for a nap (after updating the blog of course).
