It took me a few tries, but I finally got the ring gear installed onto the flywheel. I tried this morning, keeping the flywheel in the freezer for 10 minutes and the ring gear in the oven at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, and that didn't work. Ten minutes wasn't enough.

After I got home from work, I decided to keep it in the oven a little longer, and on my third attempt (20 minutes, 500 degrees), the ring gear slipped on. It wasn't fully installed, so I had to bang at it for a little while, which wasn't ideal (I probably should have left it there a little longer), but it's on there now.

I have conquered the flywheel. I win.

haha... I had NO clue what you were talking about at first, since I viewed the comment on my side-nav before I saw what post was associated with it. I wrote a post a while back on the Red Baron (I read the book), and I was confused as to why you'd comment on such an old post.

But yes. Red Baron Pizza. haha... that frozen pizza has been in there for probably about a year. My wife makes her own pizza; that frozen one was an impulse buy on my part, and I've never gotten around to eating it. I doubt it's still good. :P

You had your car thing on my frozen apples! >:| Not cool.

Also, while I'm gone this weekend you could throw that pizza in the oven and see if it's any good. :P

My dear wife... it certainly was cool. It was in the freezer, after all.
