    I went to help a fellow cruiserhead out on a knuckle rebuild. In my amazement a monkey was there instead to help out.

    He used primitive tools also

    He was trying to take out that inner seal, only to find out minutes later that the new one wouldn't fit.

    He wheels

    like he wrenches. Get-R-Done! I wish I was as quadradextrous
    as ClemsonCruiser. Reminds me of a picture of those Pakistani
    tops being made where the guys is welding barefoot.
    All told, I'd say it was a 3 naner job :banana: :banana: :banana:
    He's our grease monkey and we wouldn't have it any other way.

    I don't think that's the right grease for the knuckle (and it appears to be in the knuckle). I have never used the fully synthetic Valvoline moly grease, but I have used the full dino and the semi-syn Valvoline moly grease and both are black. For that grease to be moly and red it'd have to be red-moly, and I believe only RedLine makes a red-moly grease (which BTW they say is vastly superior to black moly).

    So there, what do I win? :D
