    Just pissin and moaning a bit!! I finally got the tranny out of the 89 blazer!!(took 3 weeks to get to this point!!) and what do I have to deal with??? Crammed in bolts that DON'T FIT!!! BUT they put them in anyways!!! Man this S#$T really ticks me off! They put a metric threaded bolt into the bellhousing and 'Effed up the block!! I can fix that with a heli-coil. But they also put standard thread bolts into the Torque Converter!! I don't need the converter, But apparantly they didn't notice that the bolts stopped BEFORE it was tight?????? The flexplate is cracked at 1 bolt hole!! It's just the STUPIDITY of it that pisses me off!

    Man, that really blows. Some people just shouldn't have tools anywhere near them.

    Gotta love the folks that think an impact wrench is the solution to all of life's little hardware problems...

    We should sick the Million Mom March on the problem with Idiots owning tools...Actually a much greater and more dangerous issue than a few guns floating around! I think this is something they could sink their tooth...er, teeth into!
