      Hmmm.... I'm not sure I like the sound of that method. I use that technique to free tie rod ends. Id think the steering knuckle is much stronger than the cam or cam journal.

      I went and grabbed the wheels... I'll never sell them without pics. I forgot how light these wheels are. I do remember the hours I spent stripping them.

      Run without them. Many people do, including myself. Pulling the reinforcement panels would be one of the first things that I do.

      Dwell at 45 shouldn't be giving you black plugs.

      Get a set of gauges on that thing and verify your system pressure, cold and warm control pressure are within spec.
