Right hand little finger. Dropped a 100 lb flywheel from Ford diesel engine... The ring gear got its way. This happened on Thursday about 6:45 PM. I don't see the orthopedic surgeon until Tuesday. This really cramps my style.

This is the first truly fractured bone I've ever had. DMP

I wonder if you know someone to help you finish the neighbors tractor?

That had to have hurt! Brings back memories of a TD-9 head and head-bolt that fell over and exploded the end off my pointer finger.

Hope you get fixed up soon.

That reminds me, I have to pull the starter on my Chevelle and see if it's eating the flywheel. Dang it.
