welp, I was driving down US 41 today, and my GTU suddenly lost power, and died, I got it started again, sort of, no power at all, died if I didn't stay on the gas, violent backfiring, got it home, and now, it won't even start, turns over unevenly, havn't pulled it apart at all, so I can't say for certain it is a seal, but it is acting like it (unless someone else can suggest an alternative problem, it has been sitting for almost 8 months) on the plus side, it looks like I may be able to get a TII for $500, so if that runs I may pick it up, and use the parts from the GTU. meanwhile, I am carless, aarrggh, what a way to spend my 2 weeks home from Baghdad.
