"HOT-NESS" (ANOTHER CJ MEDEVAC-O-MATIC WORD!) USUALLY MEANS CONNECTION ISSUES..........SORTA LIKE USING A SMALLER WIRE ( EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE BIG CABLES).........THE "PATH" IS NOT BIG ENOUGHBECAUSE OF A LACK OF SURFACE AREA. THE JUICE IS FORCED TO TRAVEL THRU A "SMALLER GATEWAY"

LOOK AT MY LINK, 'SPECIALLY AT THE PICS AT THE END

JUST YESTERDAY, I DEALT WITH ANOTHER ......"I CHECKED EVERYTHING" FELLER WHO INSISTED HE NEEDED A STARTER.

IT WAS ON AN OLDER FORD TRUCK, SO HE REMOVED IT IN THE PARKING LOT.......FOR "THE SWAP"....SO HE THOUGHT

YES, IT WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY (I HAD TESTED IT ON THE MACHINE ......LIKE 5 TIMES) IT CAME UP GOOD EACH TIME.................YOU SORTA DON'T GIVE SOMEONE A NEW STARTER, IF THE OTHER ONE IS GOOD........OR MAYBE I'M NOT THINKING RIGHT!.....HE THOUGHT THAT ANYWAY!

HE WAS RANTING AND RAVING THAT HE WAS GONNA HAVE A NEW STARTER, BEFORE HE LEFT

I WENT OUT TO THE PARKING LOT AND ASKED HIM A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT IT WAS DOING (ALTHOUGH HE HAD 'SPLAINED IT ALL BEFORE) THIS WAS JUST AWAY TO SLOW DOWN THE WHINING!

I GRABBED THE POSITIVE BATTERY CLAMP AND WITH VERY LITTLE FORCE, TWISTED AND REMOVED IT FROM THE BATTERY POST.........I SORTA GAVE HIM "THAT LOOK", .........THEN I GRABBED THE NEGATIVE CABLE AND WITH A SLIGHT PULL AND A LEFT AND RIGHT SWAG, I HAD THE CABLE IN MY HAND AND THE THE CLAMP REMAINED ON THE NEGATIVE POST WITH THE "SQUEEZER STRAP" EMPTY

I TOLD HIM WHEN HE GOT IT ALL SQUARED AWAY, AND THE STARTER BACK ONIF IT WAS NOT FIXED.......I'D REMOVE HIS STARTER, MYSELF, AND GO AHEAD AND GIVE HIM ANOTHER ONE

THE SUCKER DIDN'T MISS A LICK AFTER HIS CONNECTIONS WERE PROPERLY FIXED (I KINDA SUPERVISED HIM ON 'ZACKLY HOW TO MAKE IT ALL BETTER)

..........I BET HE CRANKED IT UP 20 TIMES, TRYING TO PROVE ME WRONG!

RETURN HERE, WITH A BIG OLE GRIN

LEMME KNOW WHAT IT WAS

DO I GET THE "DEW"????
