Re: Cooling Fan died

Man your engine sure is clean! I was thinking of doing Blue or Silver highlights on mine. Cool deal I know just where to get those pens. I used to do a lot of models when I was a kid. :good:

Re: New Cruiser(2001) and don't know where to start

I was nervous the first time I took the upper intake off the PT to change the plugs, turned out to be pretty simple. Actually in hindsight it seems easier than some of the older engines I've worked...

Re: Pt Jumpy and shakey, and died at a stop light.
