My brothers work in the motor trade and I remember being told about a breakdown job that was supposed to be a simple get-the-car-going-again type job, but when my brother got there the owner had the distributor and carburrettor entirely apart in small pieces and was starting in on the alternator. Needless to say my brother did not even attempt to work on the car on the side of the road and back to the shop it went. My brother said he'd never seen anything like it before on a breakdown job
