Wheel Lugs
Be careful when torquing your wheel lugs on your celi. My dealer said 75 ft/lbs is adequate. I guess I probably put a couple hundred to her & the stud snapped right off. On most cars it would mean the hub would need to be replaced, luckily with the celi, the lugs can be replaced individually. Thanks to whoever told me that. Anyway $5 & mine arrived today. thumbsup

Use the old shop trick:

Set your elbow to 75 ft/lbs, stop when it clicks laughsilly


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.
