I ran a Liqi Moly engine flush through her and changed the oil. I put some ceratec in with the new oil; I don't know if it will do anything.

Yeah. I noticed them turning together. So i thought i flipped the switch to reverse on my powered screwdriver, but apparently didn't & it ripped it right off.

And i can normally hold the bottom but with needlose vice grips but couldn't find them. Tried needlenose pliers so i could at least do the others and change pcv. That didn't work.

Oh well, i got some slim wrenches & I'll just wait for the grounding kit to come to do everything at once
Even my "ignition" wrenches were not low profile enough. A very slim fit.

Yikes. Might have to look through all my ikea wrenches to see if there's a 10mm lol

Installed Z23 brake pads and flushed the fluid. I used a pressure bleeder for the first time, it’s a game changer. The vacuum bleeder I used to use took forever.

For all my non technician friends here

ANY wrench can be thinner, just grind it down for free (guess and check, you don’t need to go wild in one shot).

Everyone who turns wrenches for a living has a drawer of modified tools, some so much so that that particular tool now serves only one practical purpose.

I love that you assume us non technicians have a grinder. You saw what i did with just a screwdriver. Imagine giving me a grinder 🤣

Tried removing the yoke nut off of a BW1339 transfer case one time. Nothing would fit. So now I own a 15/16 socket that is so thin I don't know how it held any torque. But it did it's job, so now it is in the socket drawer to live forever.
