Do American car companies still use imperial nuts and bolts, or are all the new Fords and GMs metric at this point?

Bullshit. Most of those countries don't even make cars and there are a few on there in green that do make pushrod engines.
Also, OHC is old as shit. Nothing new or techie about it.
DOHC on the other hand...

man has looked at the moon since the dawn of time, and we managed to go there, look back at earth, and come back. to say that it is equivalent to eating shit is pretty ridiculous.

either way, america created this, one of the all time greatest space achievements.

there's no reason to ever go to the moon other than to go, look at the size of my nuts, I can do it. same reason their is no reason to climb mount everest. People still do it though, because of the thrill and bragging rights. no one has been able to claim that right other than the US though.

damn, burma is way ahead. They walked on the moon.

Shitposting aside, they use metric bolts, but they use like 14, or 10, or other sizes that match really well with imperial sockets, been like that for years.
>>
>>14189425
NASA uses the metric system, faggot.
>>
>>14190493
fun fact: one of the early space rockets crashed mid-flight because some of the systems were programmed in metric and some in imperial units, and thus the system got several critical errors and just shut down
>>
>>14189306
All are fully metric. Chrysler was the last to go fully metric, a lot of mid decade Jeeps still had a mish-mash of metric and SAE hardware. Absolutely bizarre.
>>
>>14189739
No. Who made you so retarded?
>>
>>14189306
most use metric since many of the vehicles are actually built in metric countries and many of the parts come from metric countries. actually truth be told the US is very much metric these days aside from every day shit like speed, distance, weight ect
>>
>>14190529
>mish-mash of metric and SAE
i seriously fucking hate when they do that. nothing worse then grabbing a set of tools only to get half way through the job and find you need to go get a different set. also annoying as fuck to constantly change back and forth
>>
>>14190551
I can't understand why a manufacturer would do that. Wouldn't it be more cost effective to stay with one unit to spend less on tools?
>>
>>14190595
Different sub assembly specification I bet.
>>
>>14189306
My 1995 f150 has mostly metric bolts, and some imperial bolts mainly on the engine which is a pretty 80's design.


It's also worth noting that most of the metric bolts are sizes that are close to imperial equivalents
>>
>>14190595
Alot of 80s and 90s vehicles had engines and some parts that were originally designed in the 60s and 70's and it probably would've cost too much to redesign or retool the production of those parts. Meanwhile the body and electronics were designed more recently and after the metric switchover in the 80s

Even worse is when you're working on a Jeep and there's some random fucking Torx bolts and you just know that even if you had some Torx bits that fucker would strip anyway.

This.

Eurofags don't have the brainpower to understand math that isn't multiplying/dividing by ten and are inherently incapable of living the american lifestyle of being free to choose your measurement system. Even swap it every other sentence if you so please.

This kills the european.

Who the fuck cares. The metric system AND the english system have exactly the same capabilities in all functions.
Europ and Asia and everywhere still uses english units in the dimensioning of electric parts, because America does pretty much ALL the design work (TI, Fairchild, ST, IR, so on.)
I see no reason to care either way.
