Today I learned that cam lobe edges are extremely sharp.

Dude I could post something a couple times a week. My chimp brain is always learning something new. Like did you know you could make fire rubbing two pieces of wood together? Amazing.

Dude watch your hands when you are retiming the engine. You time passenger side bank first with the cams on the base circle but then have to rotate the driver side cams so they are under valve spring tension when you put that side together and they will want to flip over on you.


EDIT: Actually I think I am confusing the FA with the EJ. On the FA you assemble the timing for the passenger bank, then rotate the crank set the timing on the driver cams on the base circle too but they are not set at TDC timing. The EJ you have one or both driver side cams off the base circle since it has one timing belt to run the whole thing and each bank can't be timed separately :bonk: It has been almost a year since I have had one apart.

Today, I learned from my 4 ager granddaughter how old I was.

I have a bad habit of using a paper towel tube as a bullhorn to startle my 12 year old granddaughter. Today, as I was engrossed reading on the forum, the 12 year old got me back but good. I bolted back from the computer, about falling off my chair and yelled a very loud F word!

Th 4 ager scolded the 12 year old and said it wasn't nice to scare me that way because I was an old man, and then came up to me, put her arms around me and asked "pa-pa are you alright - are you sure you are alright?"

As she walked away, mrs humfrz asked the 4 ager "how old do you think your pa-pa is?"

She replied "oh, about a 100".

Nah it's still attached ot my hand, so I can type without issue. Just needed to stop the bleeding for a few minutes.

Just to re-affirm though; this post isn't meant to be about me, but it's a place for people to post what THEY'VE learned. I don't mind being picked on for being a dumb ass, but I also want people to share things in the spirit of learning.

Here's something I learned today-
Radium fuel rails for our cars have a bottom port for the fuel pulse damper- but Radium doesn't sell an aftermarket damper for that location. They want you to put one on the end of the rail, or in-line.

JD001 01-15-2021 05:09 PM

Well, I learned that bleeding stops after a few minutes.. but if it's your phone/keyboard operating finger then you're fucked..

Today I learned that a Rubik's Cube has 26 blocks (8 corners, 6 centers, 12 edges). I only found 24...

Vendor sent us a sample voltage gauge. What I learned was that this is a zener diode wired for over voltage protection. I thought it was for reverse current protection but that is a Schottky diode that you need for that. I think everyone can guess what happened.

what you did, or what it did?

because i'd check for proper failure modes and wire it backwards.

One of the shop guys hooked up one of the batteries backwards when I gave them the harness to setup.

Or just a fuse for either-current protection.

As what?

I read something or looked it up wrong it is a TVS. p/n 1N6287A

It is dead, all LCD's are toast.

Apparently I thought I learned something now I am learning something else.

Today I learned that "I want my bacon crispy" means "I want it barely above room temperature"

At least I get to eat it. Somehow this is "too crispy"

I prefer this type of bantering over regular learning. I wouldn’t have taken a second look at the component had you and soundman wouldn’t have said anything. Now I want to learn the why since I am probably going to build these in house now. Vender wants 453 for this stupid thing. I told them it had to be dummy proof too.

that's definitely "steal/sneak out of pan while cooking, but not anywhere near done" level.

Right? I love it too. Isn't that thing fused? More to the point, that zener should be protected against forward bias current ... by a fuse.

It’s not fused that I can see. The only component between the harness and the lcd is that diode. The one that was connected backwards popped the diode apart, it’s nearly two pieces. Two of the others got smoked when the harness melted. One screen looks like it survived.

Today i learned that some people are acutally okay with my being weird on here and that's pretty cool. thanks.

also learned today that i'd rather be thought of as "off" and weird than of someone who just makes shit up about other people.

No problem with it here.

I'd definitely prefer a "weird" troll (imo anyway) to a douche one.

Welp, you could take it off and solder the hole closed (good luck with that).

OR just buy a new one.

OR Bubby suggests to take it off, lay it on its side and fill the area around where it's leaking with JB Weld - :iono:

DarkPira7e 01-18-2021 12:43 PM

Today I learned that in Epic, if you cannot place orders on a BGzzname chart, you just make a new MRN and don't fuss with the erroneous record. Why fix things when we can work around the problem forever?
