Except OP wants to tear down the block and replace all the bearings.

So in this case, the cup of **** costs the same as the coffee, the barista makes him get behind the counter to aim his ****, and he doesn't even fill it all the way up.

That got weird at the end.

Why would you tear down the block for a rebuild unless you're trying to salvage a set of forged internals? It seems completely pointless.

Also, dat analogy.
