Had my guru mount and balance my new set of Generals that I bought in the fall when there was a good rebate on them.
Still had a 1/32" left on the wear bars, but starting to slip in the wet.
Also adjusted the turbo with the length of the arm. An absolute beeetch to get to, but managed to lengthen the arm a
bit to curb the tendency to spike. Now peaks at 17"hg of vacuum, holds ~27psi of boost.
Something's up with the locknut and thumb adjust screw, I'll be damned if I'm going to pull the turbo to get at it though,
car runs great, just have to watch the throttle and boost gauge. Lol, she was running at 30psi boost, woowowowow!, man
does it go, but I'd grenade the turbo fer sure.
As an addendum, I recently bought one of the Bauer (Harbor Freight) brand 3/8"
20v battery powered impact driver. Removing the wheels for the tire replacement was its first real world test.
The sidekick chuckled when I started sayin', "That won't do nuttin'".
Well lo and behold, it handled the lug bolts just fine, and made very quick work of removal. For installation I
used the 1/4" driver version, and went lightly. Finishing off with my 1/2" hand powered torque wrench was a
breeze. I do have 5amp batteries on both these tools, dig around on Ebay and I've picked them up for $40@,
a substantial discount over buying in the store.
I've always been leary of investing in aforesaid impact wrenches, but for light to medium work, I'm sold.
I got both with coupons, and found that levelling the camper's scissors jacks is short work with the 3/8"
version. The 1/4" version on a slow speed removed my glow plugs with no problems, I took the precaution
of dosing them with penetrating oil for a few days before attempting removal/replacement.
Incidentally, both of these have had the same battery for some weeks now, albeit intermittent use, but no sign yet
of either needing any kind of a charge. I can now understand how the pros use impact drivers all the time.
