Yeah but some of us start dancing the " Dumb" early. I rebuilt my first engine when I was nine. A Lauson lawn mower engine. My father took the valves to work and ground them for me. I hand lapped the seats. I had compleatly torn it apart and reassembled it using my own tools I bought at Pep Boys ( I still have some of them) using money I made mowing lawns. Sounds pretty self dependant huh? I got it running and the carb set just right. Pretty proud of myself. After running it for a hile I shut it off and promply picked it up by the piece of water pipe I used in place of a muffler. Yes dumb can start early for us. That was the first time I blistered my entire palm but not the last. And no, nine is not to old to cry.
