Yep. I see at least some quality time with some b12 chemtool and compressed air in your future BW. If you're lucky, the little rubber bits won't be totally shot...

Well, she did say if I have to buy stuff for them, give her the receipts for reimbursement... Glad I caught her on a good day when she had taken her medicine!!! There may be a tech day in my future where I can invite y'all over to whitewash my fence, I mean help scrub some carburetors.... Got my 4wheeler still sick from sitting up, too...

thanks, will do. Taking a point and shoot camera this trip, wife is doing the job so can't promise quality I'll take some with my phone to post up on the fly if Verizon works which is no guarantee. I have been on probation with them ever since I have had this stoopid iphone with them. I keep going over their fake "unlimited" plan so they optimize me every month I'm over choice words have been exchanged.

you might get lucky. 2009 you might just have plane gas in there if so you might get lucky and just drain the tanks and give them fresh gas and you'll be good to go. and if you do a tech day I'm off every other weekend. this is my weekend on.
