I'm sure Bill has most, if not all the parts.

Gez, you forget one battery and Bill never lets you live it down. Good thing he don't know about my blown fuse thing. Opps.

Dan...I know most everyone'* faults. Typically we are on the phone for our most admirable moments..lol That fuse was a learning experience in diagnosing. I think we've all had a couple of them we would like to let slip.

Keep in mind.. most of you are wimps compared to me. I killed an engine while it was on an engine stand out of the car.

Justins was hilarious though. He had to remove the battery, the pressure washer would have cleaned just fine under it etc. Then he runs around to hop in the car and says "can I start it?". The big man, Claudio says over my head "you can try". Then most of us looked down and saw the battery. Justin sheepishly put it back in. He had a crowd of about 20 people witness his moment.

That fuse moment came in handy in one thread today. I suggested he look, and low and behold, the fuse was blown.
