I have noticed that every time I attempt to do something the right way, it never lasts: Everytime I add the proper amount of antifreeze to a cooling system- the radiator begins to leak, a hose blows, or the engine doesn't live to see it's first winter. (if I add straight water temporarily, I have no coolant leaks, and the motor won't die, and I have to hurry last minute to add antifreeze when winter comes) If I buy a new gasket set for a motor, it will have to be torn apart again and all gaskets will be ruined. If or when there are parts I have to make my own gaskets for, I never have to pull those parts off for the longest time. If I paint up something and make it all pretty, it doesn't stay in very long. If I leave it all greasy and dirty, it stays in for the longest time. New clutch: means somethings gonna make me have to pull it out soon; Used clutch: nothing goes wrong and I have to make it work for the longest time. Rebuilt tranny and T-case go in... adapter breaks; Used Tranny and T-case with lots of wear... nothing breaks and I have to deal with it. Properly secure my battery: That means I'll be playing musical batteries and have to take it out 10 times. Leave the battery loose anticipating playing musical batteries: Battery never has to come out, until you forget you didn't secure it and it flies into an exhaust manifold and ruins it, meaning you have to get another battery from another vehicle which is secured and a pain to take out. I have 5 good windshields sitting stored away. I don't even want to put them into any of my trucks cause I know what will happen.
