A "hotter" spark plug will not do that to a rubber boot, nor will an ignition system.

I'd look carefully at your exhaust manifolds, you may have a leak somewhere that is...

Well, the dump bed cost $5000 to have it welded back on...and I was only making $15/hr (that one wasn't really my fault, though).

The sign pole in a major retailer's lot that I didn't see was...

Shoot, you haven't begun to make expensive mistakes until you're running heavy equipment. Especially if you're doing snow removal.

The smaller your hands, the easier it is. It helps to be a little bit limber, too.

That said, I'm 41, 6'0", 185-ish, flexible as a 2x4, and managed to do it at least twice (that was 2-3 years...

I would second this opinion. I've been in the trades almost 20 years, and I've seen the regional brands come and go, usually on the lower-end tract homes. On the better homes, the national brands...

Their reviews of paints and stains pretty much did it for me, since I have (a lot of) experience in that area. What they were rating as tops was overpriced, and a major pain in the rear to use. One...
