Note to self:

Look before you sit down and become engrossed in reinstalling camshafts.

It really would have been nice to remove the rag soaked in brake cleaner before sitting on it.

The sensation was only a bit warm and tingly at first, but, being rather occupied with counting cam chain pins, you didn't notice until it had progressed to a full-blown scrotal emergency. A true chemical conflagration from ballsac to bung.

Still a bit sore a day later...

Install the throwout bearing before you bolt on the transmission and driveshaft.

And install the rubber boot before you bolt the driveshaft to the transmission output flange.

Do not look in the long, straight bits of the carburetor as you spray carb cleaner in them. No matter how curious you are to see if you are getting the shit out. You will get carb cleaner, and assorted shit straight in the eye.

And, whatever you do, don't repeat it.

Twice.

Phuck. My eye hurts.

...remove all combustables from enclosed vehicle in the sun.

Was able to grow a paint can. Lucky it didn't explode.

When you drop the 1400 Deg. Tig torch after welding, do not try and catch it between your knees because there is a good chance the electrode will burn through your pants and into your leg.

Don't cut yourself on the fingers with an angle grinder that has no guard on it. Twice. In ten minutes...

And never weld in flip-flops. Or just tack. Or hold something for tacking. Ever.

Sorry in advance this is a little off topic, but i am sure some of you can relate in a similar way.
i am a firefighter and during the last aussie bushfires me and my team were refilling the firebombing planes there was a mix of type 1 supressive foam and water.. the foam comes in aprox 20 liter green conatiner....After we filled a plane and it had departed we started to talk and relax a bit, where one of my inexperianced crew sat ontop of the foam drums.....he was there for about 10 seconds until he lep into the air screaming "ahhhh my F**king Balls" we were all watching him do this... so a few of us casually walked over to the truck and hit him with the water, at around 2000KPA... we soon fixed that problem
(the foam burns when it comes in contact with skin)

hot items

...when you are using any type of soldering iron, welder or torch, make sure you tell EVERYBODY AROUND that the tip is hot, and it might burn you. The wife didn't appreciate the tattoo .

Do not, do not, measure anything in your garage with a Vernier Gauge in bare feet, when you drop the gauge... it goes out of calibration... and your foot has one or two holes in it mine had one it landed on the depth part on the bridge of my foot

Do not take your eyes off the track in order to watch your odometer tick over the run-in period.

At least you know how far you had gone when you first dropped it!
