12/1/2021: OK folks, the new forum software is up and running

As has been mentioned, the look of the forum is different. As time permits, we may customize the look a bit.

I have created a new thread to discuss the new platform: viewtopic.php?t=4960

The new platform should be stable and fully functional. Please report any issues in the new thread.

Thank you all for hanging in there with me as we made the rather bumpy trip over to the new platform.

Hello guys,
I have been following your journey on FB and know you have had some heating issues. Hope all is good there.
My only suggestion for tools is a torque multiplier for the lug nuts. I have one like this, https://www.walmart.com/ip/Tenive-Heavy ... 3=&veh=sem
Anyone can sit on a 5 gallon bucket and take the lug nuts off. Going back A small torque wrench on a small setting would work I still use my looong cheater pipe to set them. I know the bolts can be pulled in two pieces very easy. I changed sides and forgot the right and left thread issue. Oh well it was only about 50 miles round trip to the parts house. but did find out it works great for pulling in studs.
