It was quite odd, Ted. On the phone before we went over, Henry stated that it smelled rich while it wouldn't spark. Another indication the fuel pump was priming. I distinctly heard the entire 2-second fuel pump prime. I went back there for that specific reason when I found no 12V supply at the ICM.

The good news is that it wasn't a crank sensor, although he has access to a good shop with air tools.

Fuses won't be a problem. They have two good auto parts stores very close by, and Henry works at the Tire/Lube shop at Walmart just up the highway. That was my only spare 20. I need to replenish my own supply.

Many thanks to Katie for her patience. She admitted at lunch that it was pretty cool to help someone out, especially during the holidays. I was there for a total of maybe 30 minutes, but the pride in helping was well worth it.

Ya we went and got spare fuses last night... We definitely want to figure out whats going on. Im still somewhat concerned that our intemittent no-start problem will surface again. I have my fingers crossed but am sort of expecting it. We sure appreciate everyones help and are open to any ideas that anyone has about where we should go from here.

No thanks are necessary. There are MANY members here that do this kind of thing more often than I do. It'* kindof our trademark here.
