You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.
I can't see the forest for the trees.

Use and years doesn't matter much on an engine that's took care of. My 414 is a year newer than yours with prob over twice the hours but it doesn't need a thing. If it ain't broke don't fix it lol. :rolling

The supervisor is who we call Big John around here lol, I told Philip all about him. He is around 6'5", lives about 30 mins away and has been working on Kohlers about as long as I've been alive I think. He is retired now and comes over to have fun and teach me a thing or two. A manual can only teach so much, these men know things that no one will ever know if it's not passed down. :thumb1
