if it has the stock rover engine is is probably the simplest Rovers are the only trucks I know of that can be started by hand.

I had that same problem. I change spark break from 0,9 to 0,8 and now is perfect

You are at least partially to blame.

It's waiting on a truck in MI now.

Bike thieves..mmmm. Wish an incurable case of monkey butt and no end of mechanical failures on those pricks. Speaking first hand of my loss, I trust said thief found his way off a large cliff or under a large bus. Was a great story of someone catching a bike thief and exacting justice by crushing his right wrist in a vice. Urban legend or not, I like to think it really happened. Helps me sleep better at night :)

My lunch reading today included a little Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attachment_disorder



That is too funny! I've never received a psychological evaluation before. Thanks Ged!

Yes! I most definitely want to come up in July. I just finished getting my papers together to get my expanded drivers license. I'll shoot you an email in the next couple days.
