Sorry I missed the beginning of this thread but if the OP wants to talk to my
bud in Ohio who runs a alternator/genarator service, I am sure he would be
happy to talk to you on the phone.. Only problem is you will end up talking to
a really nice and hilarious dude, who may call you back just to chat here and
there;) Let me know or email me if you need his number.
In the mind of a racer, that checkered flag means nothing once you go by it.
It was your "last" win, and all you think about is changing that;)
