5-Dec-09 It's a Saturday and 20 degrees outside. I decide to work in the shop instead of out at the track today, along with Bill. We have tightend the piston on the rod, and the nut on the piston. Not trusting Locktite to hold in the steamchest temperatures, we stake the threads with a small prick punch to keep the nut from coming off if it loosens up.
