Re: Engine won't idle, runs like crap

Re: Why do you read this forum?

This forum is a wealth of information, assistance and at times entertainment, especially for those of us not fortunate enough to have other Pinz owners close by. It gives a sense of belonging. PayPal button clicked/ Thanks Vince!
