Knew it had to be something simple like that. My "favorite" blunder was when I was changing the oil on my 911 and immediately realized I was trying to fit 11 quarts of oil into a 6 quart pan. Full speed and slow motion both at the same time. LOL

That's nothing....

I turned the X into a Zamboni just before taking a very pregnant wife to the hospital for a checkup while finding every single pothole and speed bump.

On the plus side it was much easier to outrun an angry pregnant woman than I had been led to believe.....

I can only imagine.

I know some people here probably have some epic CCV valve stories, trying to get those God-forsaken tubes off the valve cover and distribution piece. Pulling with literally 100+ lbs of force and finally it gives....
