new job

well im bored so i figured id post up about the job i recently next door neighbor opened an automotive repair shop just up the street from us, about a month after he opened it i went there on my motorcycle to air up the tires and check out what he had going on....after a few minutes of BS'ing it dawned on him, and he said "Your a Ford guy, take a look at this car for me", it was a 90's Tbird, they changed everything electrical, and the throttle body, after 3 weeks they couldnt get it to run i opened the hood and looked it over while they told me the huge list of parts replaced, i asked if the plug wires where on right and he said yes, on a hunch i checked the firing order and sure enough the wires where crossed, badly, honest to God they had it wired like a chebbie!!!! after explaining that Ford numbered thier cylinders differently, i wired it up right and it started right up....he paid me 10 bucks for 2 minutes work and asked me if i wanted a if anyone in the central OK area needs technical advise or just wants to talk shop, swing on by ne 10th and douglas in midwest city, its right on the corner....oh, this is in NO WAY a cheap ad for the shop, we have enough business to keep me going as it is!!! im thinking it might be a good spot for a central meet in the coming months, who knows........

Congrats on the new job, I hope it works out for you.

Isn't it sad when people try to work on a Ford like they would a piece of chebby?
