Its all a learning process. I am proud to say I haven't made the same mistake twice.

I'm sure it would be fun recreationally, but as a D1 sport it gets really tiring. We practice year round 6+ times a week. Just friday we had a 2k test in the morning, nothing like starting your day by throwing up twice and being oxygen deprived for the next 6 hours. I'm glad I'm a senior.

Yeah, rowing crew is hard core. You're basically taking the place of an internal combustion motor.

It's all worth it when we actually go to race though. Also traveling to California and New Jersey on the schools dollar is pretty cool too

Update to the list:

To-Do:

0. FIND OIL LEAK/BURN
1. Inconel studs (RX-7 ordered, still need resbond but I think I am going to run without resbond for now because its a biatch to find)
2. Exhaust bracing. (Ordered a 3 inch exhaust clamp)
3. Locking downpipe bolts (Arrived)
4. Seats + Harness
4. Back braces (DIY)
5. Install new springs (550 Front, 350 rear)
6. Oil+water temp guages. (Going with a VEI systems gauge)
7. Helmet (Going to continue to run my open face helmet and wait for sa-2015)
8. Hardtop (Got one)
9. Put beads on intercooler pipes (Probably DIY: DIY $5 charge pipe bead roller - D-series.org, unless someone local knows somewhere to get it done cheap)
10. Find coolant leak. (risky to put this here but so far I haven't lost any coolant)
11. Find diff leak.
12. Heat Shielding. (master cylinder, brake lines)
13. Tune.
14. Break stuff.
15. Manifold relief cuts

I have reached a new low. Wrench left on the crank pulley when I went to start it. Backed out the crank bolt in a few seconds.

Hopefully it didn't hurt anything.

But, yeah, that's God telling you to take a day off.

Ah Aidan... You do so much stuff I would do, ha.

So after tightening it again is it alive?

Fixed. Any guesses on why it sounded wrong? I'll give you a hint. I had just put it in gear to tighten the crank bolt.

Yes. It's quite possible that when the bolt loosened, the Woodruff key slipped/sheared/whatever. You should take the front apart and inspect/reverify/retorque everything. It'll go much faster this time!

you sound like me when im in a hurry/excited/too many beers. slow down, take a break and go do some rows.

2nd video sounds like HLAs. they may take a while to "repump". if 10-20 minutes of idling-2k doesnt do it, id be throwing a pressure gauge on one of the head oil ports.

did you end up disassembling and cleaning them all?

Nope. Did more reading and found people mostly just did it to get rid of the tick, and not actually for any other reason.

its possible some brake clean got into the hlas and didnt find its way out. not sure this is an issue, but i wouldnt have soaked them in a solvent without disassembly.
