MARTINSR The thing I didn't mention is now there is something wrong with my MIG, I did NOT need this. It is now making a UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU sound, CRAP! The switch isn't working right, so I have to assume it's the switch. But it starts the sound the second it's clicked on, and then it couldn't click off. The switch didn't want to "click" it freely moves as you try to switch it off and it moves the whole way up but without the "click" shutting it off.

HOLY CRAP, I never even thought about it. But I mowed the lawn after I was done and it seems fine.

I also sharpened the lawn mower, if I am not mistaken that is the first time I have ever done that. double

I wonder if PP isn't meant for polished aluminum. I never read the directions, but it worked great on my cast aluminum intake..... Cleaned it up real nice....

Brian
Yes all the GM switches were either tilt or non tilt.

I will try to post a picture.

John

Here you Go. I need the detent spring drawn in red and the tilt return spring drawn in green.



If Russ can help, I could either send a check or he could send me a PayPal invoice.

Thanks again.

But anyway, enough of that, I got something done on the truck two days in a row now!

Good to see the truck back in your sights!
