Re: Yanmar hard starting question

Mr. Owen The man at Mack Boring works for a corporation, and there's a high probability that corporate counsel, or someone in the corporation, has decided to Cover Thine Ass in this litigious society by recommending what the manufacturer recommended in their original and normally unrevised manual. So if his recommendation is for a product that's been obsolete for a decade and is no longer the best choice for engineering purposes, he probably knows that. And for liability, rather than engineering, reasons, that's the story he'll stick to.

That's sadly normal corporate "technical" support these days, has been for a long time.

Cover Thine Ass.
