Reply to "And then, . . .the layout went Berserk!"

First, I loved the story telling, quite fun to read.   However as I'm sure will be posted by others soon,..   what kind of switch, what kind of plug,..  and some photos of what you're talking about.

Now for a couple of my stories which may be related.   Had neighbor kid some years ago that was working on his old car.  Money was tight but he decided the starter was bad so he scrimped his saving and bought another starter motor.   When he put it in the car still wouldn't start,   yell,...    a bad starter from the parts store.    Takes it out, heads to Autozone,  gets it replaced, comes back, puts it in, and still nothing,...   At that last scream I walked over to see what was happening and he recounted the story.   I looked under the hood, pointed out the new starter, followed to cable to the starter relay, and showed him the cable was loose at that end.    Yes,   another scream,...



Second story,  another neighbor kid (new neighborhood) was working on his old Mazda Miata.   Good kid, basically rebuilt the entire engine in the drive way, and then it wouldn't start.    Seven days of cursing before I walked over to have a look.   He told me of his project, all the ways he tried to trick it into starting and it would start if primed, but only run for a moment.   The fuel injection system is something I had never worked on but, the basics are there.    Seems when he reinstalled the manifold the fuel inlet connection was confused with the fuel drain,...   Oops.
