my reasoning is this. since the motor's are so cheap, who cares if i blow it up? i could cut back on smokes and beers for a few weeks and buy another one.

that being said, none of mine have blown up yet.
Yes Mr. Baird,

but you are making "light" the fact that you have...experience & intuition...And, I'd be willing to bet you rarely scrap an engine.
