With the missing 8mm wrench in hand I went into the garage after breakfast to finish the valve adjustment on my bike. Hmm, that’s an awfully small wrench and that nut sure looks bigger … sure enough, it doesn’t fit. Huh, WTF, too small!??!?
I start cracking up, the 10mm wrench (I had three of those 🙂 ) fits. At first I suspect the instructional video, simply stating the size wrong but I watched it again and there it is in the audio track as well as on the screen – 10mm wrench. Hah, too funny. Makes me wonder where I got the 8mm from. Taking it all in strides. I finish up the adjustment as well as an air filter change; it all takes longer than expected but I have already planned for that. After I’m done with the bike I work on the tool kit and other smaller projects while the temperature is climbing outside. By the time I get back inside it’s 15:00 and 96F in the garage. A tad warm, but that’s OK, I’m drinking plenty of water and enjoying myself. For those that know me, I’m thermally challenged, getting cold easily (basically anything under 60F ;-)) so hanging out in the garage when it’s warm is not so bad. Here are some pictures.
