    Its a dad's obligation to help out his grown up progeny with sage advice like this.

    I'll always remember my dad wandering into the garage after I'd been into an engine rebuild for a whole day and was knackered and swearing that the fecker wouldn't start, pointing out the ht leads were on wrong, and then wandering out.

    I'm looking forward to doing the same with mine....

    I remember my mate working on his Elsinore 125 engine rebuild. His Dad walked into the garage to grab a beer and said if you knew what you was doing, that'd be done by now, and walked off laughin to himself. Amused me anyway...
