    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 a messy monkey!

    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
