Awake: 6:11am    Temp 45    sleep 5+30    sunny    overnight @ Nicktown, PA.

After brunch, I called Chuck & asked him why I hadn't seen him riding around on his Quad runner today. He replied: "because I can't get it started & I think it has an electrical problem." "Is this a good time for me to come over & check it out" I asked. "If it's good for you, it's certainly a good time for me" he answered.

Using my Fluke, I checked the wiring leading from the battery to the starter solenoid & the voltage was low. There was quite a lot of mud covering this connection; once moved & tightened, the regular (12) volt power was found. Why this problem came up all of a sudden is a mystery to me.

However, one thing I had to bring up was....Chuck's selection of a replacement spark plug. When I compared both the old & the new, there was a shortage of length on the new plug by at least 1/8th of an inch. The person he bought the new plug from told him that he had the same quad runner & that's the plug he used. Well, so far...since the new spark plug has been in the engine, we've had trouble starting that engine. I will encourage Chuck to get another spark plug as recommenced by the owner's manual.

Dinner: Sirloin tip steak, yam, broccoli & corn on the cob.

Evening movie: "Love with a Proper Stranger." We watched ½.

Lights out: 12:30am.
