And yeah, Same thing. Check plug, Check wires, Have a smoke, ect, ect.
I DID remember to check the petcock though.LOL.
FD, I quoted you in school today. Was too funny. For the life of me I couldn't do the trig to make an angle on a clamp. They deliberately didn't give the angle on the drawing. So the poor dumb Son Of a Bicyclist had to do the math. After three tries, I gave up and put a protractor on the drawing. I was 15 minutes and zero degrees wrong but well within tolerance. The guy (expletive math wiz) next to me was taking his time telling me how wrong it was that I took that approach.

I looked at his part and said, "it is your clamp. Build it your way"

LOL, and he got the math wrong and was out of tolerance.

Really do enjoy your posts and your approach to building.

If it ain't fun, why bother?
worst apocalypse ever
