I hope he ran video. It would be a real shame if he had to drop the stupid rod back in there just for that...

Awesome, good work Zix. Extra points for this being in your parking lot and not in the comfort of a will stocked shop.

Did that oil sight glass come right off easily? I don't think I've read about anyone else removing that around here. I might take mine off and clean it, the inside is a little greasy.

Image? What image?

Can't see the resolution image. I'll assume it's the rod on the outside of the engine.

Good job.

Are we to just take your word you fixed it? Seems a bit convenient, Eh?

Viddy or it never happened!

I think we should have a vote! Who else thinks that Zix should put the rod back down the oil fill hole so he can properly document the extraction?
