Hope everything is OK manny Did you ship it back to me so I can do the quick swap like we discussed on Friday dude.
On a side note Me and Fern are buying you the wine next time you come down to the TFF.

I will even try to ship out same day. Mail comes in the morning. I will fix and have jacky drop the engine in the mail in Camrose same day
Sorry bud
