how much did you get for the 15 miles? that's a really short time for such a large quantity.

how old is it? Could the brushes be toast? motor windings shorted? You can buy parts online once you figure out what it is. I suspect you can do that in 5 minutes of googling "dewalt sawzall doesn't move blows circuit".

Negative Ghostrider. To achieve maximum drunkenness on low alcohol content beer one must bong the beer. I'd personally have no problem with Natty Ice (6% ABV vs Bud Lights 4.2% IIRC)

The white stuff made my friend spew, fortunately he made it to the bathroom.

The word "gigolo" is probably the best contextual translation for a native speaker of American English.

I dislike having to take two steps to access User CP, which is one of my more commonly accessed buttons on the bar. I check for new posts to threads I am involved in by using that one button. It is far more used than "Miata Pics".

Hover over your name and the pink dropdown arrow, then click User CP.

Maybe i'm missing the second step somewhere...

One click, no need to access the UserCP:





I use this function more than any other button on the site.

There's still the User CP button at the very bottom of every page. I use "end" > "User CP" a lot.

Aaah, the joy and the satisfaction that comes with a healthy "wroom" on the first crank after rebuilding an engine, retrofitting an EFI kit, and re-doing all the wiring from scratch...

And the settling of the engine into a nice, lumpy idle with a deeply resonating exhaust tone...

And, the sinking feeling of defeat with the discovery of an oil leak that will require the removal of the ******* cylinder...

******* paper gasket.

So the fuel-injected, soon-to-be-turbocharged scooter is alive?

Indeed it is.

I just need to finish this work project before I can tackle the oil leak and button everything up on it. I had to remove quite a bit of the scooter's body panels for accessing the engine, wiring, etc.

On a completely unrelated note, what would cause my idle to shoot to 1900 rpm and hang there for a good 10 seconds before settling down to 950 as I come to a stop in the Miata?
