In the passenger floor board was three cans of either...... You guessed it, It wouldn't start.

I called the man asking if he wanted me to check why it wouldn't start...... His reply; "shoot some either in it and it will fire right up", I got a couple guys and pushed it out my bay then told em to come get it.....

Two more tows and three more busted bolts along with two more new starters, He finally woke up and let me install a new glow plug controller......

I every time I see those "Gas Monkey" guys...... EVERYTHING they try to get run'n is with either instead of finding the root of the problem and fix'n it........
There is an old guy ..within earshot of where I live...that has a fixit shop in his backyard..
His garbage cans are always overflowing with starter fluid and snakeoil cans..
There's nothing more frustrating than trying to enjoy a Saturday afternoon bbq..
While. listening to hunting governors...lean carbs...weak ignitions..chinese sparkplugs..etc.
His biggest problem is water in the gas...he washes everything with a 13hp honda pressure washer...

We don't talk much.....
