Some time ago, there was a featured article in Popular Hot Rodding magazine that touted a particular engine builder's talents at building a 360 Chrysler engines. The "guru" discussed how he "Scotch-Brighted" the bearing to remove the initial coating to prevent it from flaking off.
I wrote a letter to the editor of the mag pointing out that I thought it was a bad idea to rub abrasives into a bearing and that the bearing designers would probably agree with me and that I thought if the builder wanted race bearings, he should use them.
The gist of the editor's reply was that this guy was a "somebody" and the I was a "nobody", so the builder in question was right.
Pray for a secular future.
MSNBC's catch phrase is "Lean Forward". Shouldn't it be "Bend Over"?
