That's what I was wondering. I have an 81 special, but it doesn't even look like the pictures of the Standards that I have seen here. Doesn't hurt to check it out though.

This has got to be worth $500 isn't it? Not that I need another one, but it can't hurt, can it?

Your method goes against everything I have read so far, but it worked! It's running like a charm. I guess I'll go back to not even bothering to read the directions. :D Thanks again!
