    I'm sure you did, just my back round was company equipment. For a company that never really wanted to "solve the problem" just fix it till the next time.

    It was a day of happiness when the last one was sold in the shop. They did move it to local work for the last few years. Shorter tow bill.

    And your the one that has had this same survey and told cat guys how to run thier engines.

    Everyone has built junk engines. Seen a rash of early E models that they didnt wash the sand out of casting and self destruct. Seen plenty of MBN engines that could not pull a wet fart from my shorts.
