I get what you're saying about using a torque wrench at the bottom of its range. It's good to have the overlap.


I don't think a slight over-torque did any damage, or would have rendered the...

I don't watch the clock. It takes as long as it takes for each task as part of the whole. I focus on being in the moment and push away the idea of being finished whenever it creeps in.

Fuck me... Try this.


Take out the stop light fuse again and disconnect the battery for a few secs. Then reconnect the battery with the stop light fuse still removed. Does it start?

That's a stupid low-ball quote. I bet they're expecting an I-4 under the hood. I would take it to the $600 shop. It's a fair quote.

Dunno for sure. Use the continuity or resistance mode on the multimeter, or use the horn socket as your fuse tester. I don't know what you mean by missing/bad. Which is it?

Starter and battery will both be fine. You have a multimeter. Use it to check the fuses you've been swapping but it would be obvious from just looking at them. Something doesn't add up.
