What? You think I am not going to force you to click on the story to find out? With the weather the way it’s been, no boating, so no story material. Heck we have even tapped out ebay. China patterns. SOS! So, you want to know what the final fix was? So did we, for about two hours.
First it was pouring outside, so thank goodness for a boathouse. We had a trusty tester, and first we had a very strong spark, at the coil, and the points. So? Move to fuel for a quick check.
Sprayed starter fluid, possibly to much, but dam if she didn’t start. Ran like a wet turd.. OK that’s a visual you may not want in your head. Anyway, so its fuel? Right? We start by taking out the needle, FINE!
OK is fuel getting to the carb. YES, Take off fuel lines? YES, FUEL. ALL GOOD. OK to be at this point we are looking at each other. WTF?
OK, back to the electronics. Start with the Condenser. Just start replacing stuff to replace it. It has spark after all.
Take a deep breath..Hold.. and…
Turn the key, and VROOM! PURRRRRRRR. WTF! That’s it. No drama, just a crappy wǒ cào Condenser. Brand new one, only to be replaced by another wǒ cào condenser.
The good news. We have another wǒ cào condenser and knowledge now! Maybe buy them by the case. That’s the master plan I am sure. Carry around a box of condensers. The Coast Guard will now make you carry extra condensers like flairs or life jackets. IT’S ALL A CONSPIRACY!
Thanks to Jimmy for being there and seeing that I was not the idiot I felt like, and to Dave VanNess for sending out two of everything just in case.
Dave is going to be doing an article on Condensers for the Smith Mountain Lake gangs Newsletter and we will share that right after. It all makes perfect sense once Dave explained it. Of course all I remember is that the Coil and Condenser or complete opposites. Just another normal love affair! So for all of you that called out Mr Crap Condenser! YOU ARE WIENERS!
