-Kennginn- "There you have it!" -my point exactly. While you are into a project, just take those few extra minutes to do a thorough check of all the components.
Good practices sure can help reduce the embarrasments (and costs) related to maintenance actions based on too many assumptions and opinions.
I had to laugh at a response I just read recently on one of these forums: (-sorry, I'd give proper credit, but I don't remember where it was). Anyway, it drove home the thought of keeping in mind how much people are "paying" for all of this "free advice" that we are passing out. -that can be taken several ways,,,,
Even the best and most experienced mechanics can be tricked. Here is what I have found to be true almost every time: More time spent on careful troubleshooting, ALWAYS pays off with less time and money being spent on the actual repair.
And, BTW, I am so glad to have found these Bonneville Club Forums. What a great service to everyone. All of the administrators and everyone else that makes this happen are to be thanked and commended.
