The video seems to be down right now but here's the link to the clip of me putting my old Paseo out of its misery with a rod knock. Hopefully it comes back soon.

I was told they were incorrect lug lengths for the studs and simply weren't long enough, or something to the effect.

I dont know who's bike this was, but they managed to saw the chain clean through the derailleur. I wonder how long they pedaled, slowly grinding away at it?



For someone who daily drives a 10 speed, this took me entirely too long to rationalise what I was looking at.

Hell, the only way I can see you sawing through would be if you had such a poorly adjusted derailleur that it was rubbing in the smallest gear, and that wouldn't break it that high up.

Well, how did it snap then? That's not exactly a high stress area. I was justifying it as either riding on the larger gear or chain flex. Other than that I've got absolutely nothing.

Cross posting from my thread. I was doing a timing belt and water pump on my friends' '94 Galant after the water pump hucked the belt off the pulley. Think I found the problem.

Yeah, my first reaction was bearing shoe as well, and I was expecting this to result in a "So we looked deeper, and saw holes 1/2" wide in places, leading us to find..." chain of progressively bigger jaw-droppers ending in the total internal destruction of the crankshaft.

I wish, we wanted to yank it apart to find out why and where and how but the owner had it towed out as soon as we called to say "Hey we found something nifty in your engine."

Pretty sure the youtube of that incident was actually posted in the thread while back. I seem to recall they taped it for a demo of what not to do. Id post it but I'm on my mobile.

So a Dodge Dakota came in to work earlier with a complaint of a horrible noise coming from the car. Apparently the guy took it to Les Schwab twice and they couldnt find a single thing wrong with his car. Pulling it in sounded amazing.

Hm, that backing plate looks a little odd.



Here's the passenger rear for comparison.



Got a nifty little pile of metal dust on the rim. Odd.











Something horribly wrong happened to the parking brake inside the rotor. It was pretty much completely gone. Even cracked the caliper mount. Tomorrow I get to pull the axle and fix it!

Chiming in that I'm on flat rate and I get paid for meetings. Dakota was an 03, got it all torn apart today in tome for the owner to call back that he changed his mind

I did test drive it after reassembly, it only wiped out his parking brake in the end. Rotor was gouged internally but the caliper and stopping surface were fine. Drove ok after, heS just not going to be able to use the parking brake.

When I went to grease monkey school we had one of those with the phenolic gears that had grenaded in the tear down room and I heard it was a minor issue, but at least with them it was non intereence, but that may be anecdotal.
