Johnny,
Quit drinking if you want, it's not a bad decision, but "never" is a long time when you quit something. It can make giving something up almost impossible when you attach the "never again" to the equation. I'm not promoting drinking or anything, I'm just saying maybe limiting yourself to a single beer once in awhile might make it less painful to change your habits. Glad your still with us 'cause I sure enjoy this thread so far.

I'm looking at doing some repair work to the infamous area where the control arm bolts to as well and Manic3 over on 3cylinders.com has a thread with a link to some pictures from when he did his repair. Maybe this will be useful to you and maybe you can share your repair progress over there in his thread too. Here's his thread:

I too am glad all has worked out well for you.
I would second the motion about "Never again"
Many years ago I tried the never again approach to alcoholic beverages and found myself binging to great extreme every few months, then swearing off again and repeat.
I learned my limit and can now enjoy an adult libation with Friends and Family without overindulging.
I think this is better for me, perhaps it will work for you also.
I would hate for you to leave this forum.
To the best I can tell you are the only other Semi mechanic here.
And don't be EOCing in a Semi either.

Glad to hear you made it through OK. We all make our own decisions and we all live with them (for however long that may be). Hooray for the capacity to learn.

Can't wait for the next installment

Holy cow Johnny! Glad you're ok now. Close one for sure.

For the benefit of those reading your story and judging:
Unless you are a saint or libraryian, this could have very well happened to you or me.

Anyone can screw up and it takes a big man to admit. I takes a bigger man to admit it in a public forum <where others can read and benefit from a mistake made>. Tip of the hat to ya, Johnny, you're alright. Sounds like backing away from the bottle would be a great thing, but that's your personal business, just be safe.

Less parties leaves more time to tinker with the metro

Again dude, glad you're ok

damit Bryn... that's not fair!

I just had this flash-back memory of being in this club, up front near the stage, this performer came out with the whole 'glasses, button-up-to-the-neck blouse and hair up in a bun' look, and demonstate why you don't judge a book, er, librarian by her cover... nevermind... that memory needs to stay in Vegas!
