Better than waking up at 2am and doing SUDOKU all night trying to fall asleep then dragging your feet all day.
Well . .. whatever you write to help someone. . . there are always others who come here later maybe for the same problem and the advice given is helpful to them. And. . we may never know because all forums have lurkers and never register to join.Sometimes i feel like i am just spinning my wheels trying to help some people here. do you old pros feel that way?
I mean , all we can go on is the owners description of the problem and we do the best we can with possible solutions based on our experiences .
Then either we dont hear back from them or are told that they dont understand or listen and do what they want anyway. Usually they come back with more problems because they did not want to advice given here in the first place. I say , if you don't want to do it right or want a cheap redneck fix then go someplace else. Go watch some yahoo videos on you-tube.
When I feel like I have wasted my time I get REALLY irritable.
If it's a screw type a clamp won't work.
Thanks, guys, that's it exactly! Never ran across one of those before. You just saved me a bunch of cursing tomorrow...definitely looks like it might be one of them fancy calipers like Coby mentioned. i never get why they got to complicate things that don't need to be this complicated.
you just don't fall into the "most" category. i know a few people who have had brakes fail and never even thought about trying the park brake.I do all the time. Every time I come to a stop I kick it in neutral and apply the parking brake. Then you don't have to keep your foot on the pedal. Also stops better in neutral when you're not fighting the engine.
