I can't tell you how many cars my spouse has shoved around or how many 
transmissions she has juggled with me. What a blessing she has been!!! 
Now, if I could only teach her to point a flashlight at the right spot 
(or favorite point of contention)!!! I've noticed lately that she sounds 
like she's been having tea with Ruth Burgess, or something. She's picked 
up a lot of Rover info over the years and may have a better memory than 
I do, at this point.

My gross jet simply stuck in a 1966 Midget that was used regularly and 
had nice fresh gas in it. It might just have been defective in some way, 
but it's a cunningly simple device. Who knows?
