    Dumbest thing i've done

    so i was checking the timing on my car cause its been running kinda rough and i decided i should put the wrench on the cam gear to move the motor enough to be able to check it. i have now learned that its way better to leave shit alone or do it the right way...anyone else do something dumb like this?

    Replacing the front turbo, when we put everything back together (mainly the radiator) forgot to make sure the top hose was connected..... 5 mins later I was wondering why my car was over heating.

    lol sorry to laugh but sometime we ignore that voice in the back of our heads that say don't do it then we say damn I knew I shouldn't have done that. Yes I think we all have. Just redo your timing and be very careful.

    I did something similar only it was the bottom hose. I connected it, just didn't tighten the clamp. Lasted me a couple days before it blew off.

    Years ago when I had the engine machined and the heads done, I went in to get some pics. I placed one head on the bench - turned to get a shot of the block then BANG! I turned to see the head lying on the floor, about an inch away from my foot which was only protected by a flip flop. Miracle number one was that it didn't crush my foot into mashed potatoe, the second was that the head landed right on the corner and did NO damage to the bolts or the important parts. I still feel sick everytime I think back about that day and how I still have both feet.

    Haha I would be pissed if I did that. The Brad Penn oil isn't cheap.
