"CHECKED" AND "INSPECTED" HAS DIFFERENT MEANINGS.....DEPENDING ON WHO YOU ASK

I APPRECIATE THE RESPONSE......BUT DID NOT RECEIVE AN ANSWER IN WHICH I MIGHT BE ABLE TO SUGGEST "REAL TESTING" OR MAYBE MOVE ON TO OTHER POSSIBILITIES

KINDA LIKE GOING BACK AND FORTH ABOUT A "NO START" SITUATION FOR DAYS AND DAYS--RUNNING OUT OF POSSIBILITIES---WHEN THE VERY 1ST RESPONSE I GAVE WAS TO "SNATCH THE BATTERY OUT, HAVE IT TESTED AT A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE.....THIS IS USUALLY A FREE SERVICE!"

THE ASKER'S RESPONSE BEING, "THE BATTERY IS LESS THAN 6 MONTHS OLD....I KNOW IT'S GOOD"

TEN RESPONSES LATER (AND I'M CONSIDERED AN IDIOT, THE WHOLE TIME)I GET A REPLY BACK, "THE BATTERY WAS THE PROBLEM....IT WAS DEFECTIVE.....ALL IS FINE NOW!"

SO YOU THINK I WAS GIVIN' YOU YOU A QUICKIE ANSWER?......TOO BAD YOU DON'T HAVE A CJ.......LOOK AT THIS 'ONE' (OF MANY)................QUIRKY ANSWERS, HOME-MADE PICS AND DIAGRAMS AND TEACHING GIVEN TO AN EAGER 18 YEAR OLD WILLING TO LEARN......AND NOW A CYBER PAL WITH A DEPENDABLE SUPER JEEP.......HIS POST STARTED IN DECEMBER 2011---RAN TO---JULY 2012

.........STILL NO "REAL ANSWER" TO A QUIRKY REPLY ???

THE MEDIC

PICS BELOW OF PROJECT IN 1991, I WAS ABLE TO DO ......."ALL BY MYSELF"........., IN A ONE CAR GARAGE, IN THE ONE SIDE OF A DUPLEX I RENTED......USING MOSTLY CHILTON AND HAYNES MANUALS FOR HELP..........HE'S STILL A DAILY DRIVER 22 YEARS LATER, ALONG WITH MY '77 CJ 5
