Re: what might this be?

Re: Cooling problem solved now what's wrong with my tach?

Could you possibly reverse the original fix (replaced sender, etc.) and see if the tach problem still exists? If not, your answer could be in the incompatible or defective replacement parts.

Re: Things lost in the water

One time I lost one of those folding/collapsing metal-tube & cloth chair like things. I'm sure someone probably found it and it is now sitting on someone's sister's porch somewhere. :-)
