    okay, let's do it.

    Sparky: my Jeep cuts out at highway speeds in 3rd gear, what could it be ?

    Glenn, Patrick, and Jim: you should replace the carb base gasket

    there, that was easy !

    :oops: Sorry, got distracted by work. I'm thinking carb gasket just a bit too small, causing a vacuum leak that's kinda hard to catch due to the location. :D

    I think the crank needs a zipper. :D
    I mean think about it for a second, the cam gets a button, so why shouldn't the crank get a zipper? :D

    So was Sparky's problem caused by the lack of cam button or was it caused by the carb gasket? I never did hear the truth. Then again did Sparky ever really have a problem? that is the question we should be asking.
