Re: Headlamp issues

One thing that is always overlooked and im guilty as well is making sure the clips are clean,maybe sand them scratch em up clean the terminals good and spray that red stuff on them...sometimes its all about claning stuff up, even the contact point on the bulb and headlamp

Re: Headlamp issues

I got a good laugh at this post... had a buddy sort of fall asleep frogging one night with that light on. He burned thru his hair down to the scalp before he woke up. Sounds like a bad ground to me but im an electrical dummy. Put an inline fuse next time see what that does.

if anyone here remembers the fight we put up yrs ago with regards to Curry Island on Lake O, it was Charles who was on every conference call giving us the legal advice. FAA won that deal as well.

Burned many logs on Lake O telling lots of stories with Charles and the rest of us who always met up at night out on the Lake....I'm sure he's harassing some FSU fans and fighting some sort of battle for the good guys upstairs. RIP

Re: Carb question?

Never run a carb traight out of a box if you want to preserve the longevity and performance of the motor. Send it to someone who is an expert. Money well spent
