problem solved??

well could it be the gp relay is fused at the contacts? wodnek and i were there last night trying to use a 400 watt portapower schumacher. it was connected to the 80 amp fuse but it didn't even spark. it didn't spark again when we ran the jumper cable from the battery to the fuse.

onward to tonite.

blondie has a collapsed left lower control arm. hunter thinks he has a buyer. yay.
