How strait does the water pump pulley really need to be? I'd like for it to be perfect, but I'm trying to bend it back into place and there's just a little wobble.

Why not steal a straight one off one of your spare motors?

How the F did you do that? You seriously must be working in a third world garage or right off the street.

Are you sure there isn't any crap sitting behind the pulley? I'd expect that or a loose bolt before a bent shaft.

I guess it depends on if he likes his water pump bearings or not.

I'm seriously drunk. I'm not tearing anything up, everything I get is broken or doesn't fit.

maybe you need to take a break from cars?
Stop makin it rain, focus on earning money, step back for a few months, then come back refreshed and make things happen with non-demolished parts

Does not compute when you have the racing "bug"

(bug = addiction, habit, disease, etc. etc.)

I do not think Hustler is addicted to racing. I am pretty sure he has never sucked dick for track time.

Computer racing will be a good change for u mate, at least it will be a lot cheaper after the initial cost.

I need to get this car on track, period. I need to race the **** out of it, park it, and relax. I don't know if this makes sense to anyone, but it makes-sense to me.

This is where I was almost all last year. I don't run W2W competitive or anything, but when you can't get your **** to work right and all you want to do is drive, it really starts to **** with your chi.

More good advice. Sometimes it takes a fresh set of brains or hands on your project so you can get some perspective. This is why I try to work with Gesso, he keeps me sane. No homo.
