We all love to pick on Raza, but truly, he is a great friend. I can call him anytime, with any question, and he has the patience to deal with an A-hole like me. I was YELLING at him on the phone last night. He told me to shut up and listen. I don't have very many friends who can handle me I will admit, but he can. I see him having a bright future. Kid has the brains to do great things.

Thanks Raza, I owe you BIG TIME.

Tim you are far from an idiot. You made a mistake that anyone could make. You handled it in perfect fashion.

As another American who knew a thing or two about cars once said:

"The man who never made a mistake never made anything."

Whether this was an attempt to explainthe Edsel to the rest of the board is another matter entirely...

Tim, your behaviour in all this has been exemplary, as has that of your mates and the owner of the car. I've learned loads of interesting and potentially useful stuff, so nothing is wasted.

Thanks, and congratulations on getting it sorted in just 96 hours from the start.

Tim: Ok now that we know it was the CPS in relation to the flywheel, one more question. In post #81 in the other thread you said it couldn't be the CPS because with it unplugged one car had fuel being sent and the other didn't. So is there a way to rectify that situation to the misaligned flywheel or were you somehow wrong about the fuel discrepency producing a red herring and reinforcing the concern about an electrical spike, etc?

Honest mistake, kudos to you for admitting it openly and sharing with everyone. I've made so many dumba$$ mistakes with cars, stereo, electronics, etc it's amazing I have any ego left....
