Re: Can we get that annoying yellow banner advertisement removed??

Thanks for the reply Scott. I can only imagine the the time you spend maintaining the site and am truly thankful for it.
Some sites do offer the pay for use no ads option and thats why I posed the question.
Thanks again!

Re: Can we get that annoying yellow banner advertisement removed??

Yes the ads are very annoying but the site is worth the annoyance. Is there a fee that a person could pay to have an advertising free experience here?

The wiper,,,,, how 'bout you build a box with a glass front and frame that unit? Hang it in your office.
New windshield is probably in your future.

Re: Hello everybody

First time I ever seen a wiper on a plastic wshield!
I agree with doing the belts before firing it.
Before worring about the carbs get some fuel system cleaner and fresh gas and see if it'll run.

Thanks, Never thought of that!

Re: Reverse not engaging

Ive had a similiar problem but as it turned out I hadn't moved the lever quite far enough and after moving it back and forth a couple times the R light came on and all was good.
Maybe needs cable adjustment or just workin it back n forth.
