Spro, I'm starting to think that the Burb just doesn't like you. How 'bout I take it off your hands?...

Since no-one else said it, Aluminum rims do have that potential to loosen up due to the dissimilar coefficients of thermal expansion between Al and Steel (wheel studs). Especially with the cold of winter, the range from cold to hot of braking (was this on your dodge or XJ?), especially front brakes, it'll stretch the studs and lose the torque.

Same reason that *some* people have aluminum wheel spacers fall off.

Thicker the wheel, worse the problem.





Oh, cunt-boy is funny. LOL, idiot...

Wow, I'm glad you're ok.

Funny story, My friends Dad drove/directed for Blue water thumb Youth For Christ. He drove the old MCI 8/9's busses and one time on the way down to florida they had one of the wheels from the Tag Axle fly off, go window height, roll across the interstate and take out an explorer. Just imagen replacing the engine with a tire. That's pretty much what happened. They got red tagged and were stuck for 6 hours. It wasn't because of a Lug though, the Hub Broke off.

And wow......I love the entertainment that childish people can bring to a Saturday night.

Yes there are kits out there that allow you to push start an automatic. Yes there were automatic transmissions that were once made. That allowed you to push start an automatic.

But my challenge still is open. Because unless you have that old school trans or a modified trans. Your not going to push start or pull start an automatic. Remember my challenge was for an oem trans. So a modified one would not be allowed for this challenge.

I don't assume that I know everything. You assume that.

I didn't read all the other bullshit but how exactly is this a challenge? The only challenge would be to actually FIND one of the old school transmissions. Shit, my wife could figure out what vehicle she needed to look for by using Yahoo in about 10 minutes.

You want a challenge, get into something drivabilty related or an electrical problem.

Goddammit, now I'm going to have to go out, get data and find a way to post it that won't get me fired. :stan3:

This was on the Suburban's Chevy D60 w/Ford outers, on which I have H2's. I've probably done 1000-1500 miles since the front wheels were last put on after the adjustable kingpin install and a chunk of that was towing a dual-axle trailer with axles, etc on it around the state last week + I towed the XJ to Midland for its axle swap + I've been driving it daily while the XJ is under the knife again. The front wheels have probably seen more than their fair share of temperature changes during that time. The rear hub seals are also leaking (probably original factory seals), so the rear brakes aren't fully doing their job right now, either.

Screw ups nothing like this. I made some mistakes but they were very minimal. Nothing that would cause damage to something that isn't broke.

I think my biggest screw up was when I was in the corps. I was replacing an engine in the LVS. The engine was a 92v Detriot Diesel. I forgot one bolt that was in the bellhousing of the trans. Ended up breaking the part of the bellhousing that the bolt was in. Needless to say this was the first time I replaced this engine. But other then that I never had any other major screw ups.
by 92v detroit diesel what do you mean? the "v" is my main question. I have never heard of this engine called the 92 v Detroit ever, 92 series yes but v, do you mean, "valve?" because this engine did not have 92 valves.

I suspect he meant "8V92", like "6V92", and "16V92" - different series of Detroit Diesel 92 Series powerplants.

No shit. I bet every thread between PP and bigcunt there is going to be mention of pushing starting an automatic. I also bet that it won't be PP who brings it up.

10-4, little misunderstanding on the 92 series, always check aluminum wheel torque after mounting, and monthly after that to be sure
