Re: $500 for a throttle cable and a hose clamp

some of the tools you can buy for certain engines make all the difference in the world...honda was big on this on their motorcyle engines and you couldnt beleive how little KNOWLEADGE you had to have when using their tools

yes a but expensive for a one time use deal but if you like working on engines and things mechanical this tools pay themselves in the medium and long run

stuff like bearing pullers and retainers, shaft holders, etc..etc...etc...even a good spark plug wrench goes such a long way in making lufe easier for you and cheaper in the end

befriending a good shop and mechanic though is priceless and having a place or person to give you ideas and help for a beer or two and using them when you arent comfortable is great but unfortunately these days we all know they are few and far bewteen

peace

Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
