    Luigi was the importer and dealer for Ferrari around here for years
    From his fchat RIP thread:
    For those who didn't know him, Luigi was the official Ferrari importer for Quebec and Eastern Canada from 1963 to 1999. He acquired the rights to sell Ferraris directly from the Drake himself, but only after having the door slammed into his face three times. The Old Man was impressed by Luigi's tenacity, and gave him the rights, although he had reservations about his Ferraris winding up in an Arctic country.

    Buying a car from Luigi during his tenure was no easy feat. You simply didn't walk into his shop and ask to buy one. In Luigi's opinion, ownership was merited. This obviously did not earn him a legion of friends, but he did manage to run a very successful business, and create an inner circle of followers and admirers. If anything, his MO only added to the Ferrari mystique.

    Once he was no longer an official importer, Luigi Sports Cars stayed open as an independent Ferrari shop, and primarily took care of the "Luigi Club" members' cars. During his final years, his shop was more of a club house/museum/shrine than a service garage.

    Question: is it bad that the bolts on my tires are so tight that we cannot remove them nor by hand nor with an electric impact gun??

    The only one that comes off are the ones with the lock nut because those are always tightened by hand....

    Car went in the dealer for oil change 3 weeks ago and they must have tightened them because a couple months ago the tires were removed from the car and put back in place a few times and they were never tightened so hard.

    Not really bad... Just annoying AF. I'm convinced the M14 bolts on BMWs now leak loctite. They are always tight

    Ça ces parce-que le dealer a vissé ça a l'impact et ces accoté dessus comme si il n'y avais pas de lendemain.

    Appel pour chialé ou sinon prend une longue bar de forces pi l'huile de coude.

    Si tu veux aidé a éviter ça, met du never seize Sur Les bolts

    It's bad then the locknut is that tight. The keys snap all the time. Locknuts are useless

    Pas supposé mettre de lubrifiant, quel qu'il soit sur des lug nut.

    de l'anti-seize est pas un lubrifiant en soit, mais il agit en tant que tel pareil.

    Or the people they hire at the garage just don't give AF. Happened to my brother's car. Garage took off a single tire to plug a nail and they torqued it back over 200 lb-ft. All three other wheels that we torqued to spec in the spring came off super easy.

    Like I said it happens. Even here where we use a torque wrench sometimes bolts get tight. Just a dab of anti seize on the threads. People get all hung up about it messing around with torque values but it's a wheel bolt not a fastener on a spy satellite... Same people who ask "is your psi gauge calibrated one a month"

    Doesn't it damage the threads on the bolt if you torque them to 2.5 times the recommendation?
    That's the only reason we care, long term damage.

    Follow up would be why even set a recommendation? Just have a universal figure like 100 lbs ft for all cars and light vehicles if they're not sensitive to over torquing?

    I've never seen one sheer off unless @Kaimera was driving or cross threaded. What I have seen is over torqued bolts strip the hex off requiring you to cut them off with a torch... Pretty much everything is 80-104ft lbs. Tesla 129ft lbs

    Je me posais la question si c'étais possible de refaire les fillets Sur un flare fitting (ligne à brake, Power steering). Ces quand même large comme thread. Ma changer la nut si ces impossible mais mettons que ça me sauverais du temps de refaire les fillets.

    La grosseur est pas le probleme....il existe des tap/die pour n'importe quel filet.

    Mais la question est plus ce que le matériel a l'air avant de décidé d'utilisé un tap/die. (Y a t'il assez de viande pour que ca serve a qlqch)

    c'est ben rare que tu peut refaire des fillets quand c'est strippé.....sans avoir besoin de l'aggrandir.
