It's easy to fix as long as you have a corded drill with a universal motor in it.

My brother got it working last night. He said it might be old gas, It might have had it flooded a little because the gas was on when I was pulling it out of my shed, it could have been cold, or I might not have been pulling the cord right!! Lol. But it's all good cuz he's got it working now! Now my job is to make sure there's gas in it and not have a fireball come at my face like Mr. A&E a couple years ago! Lol

Will do. Yeah I think we went from 29 teams to 18.

I just finished the last of that sausage by the way. I didn't like it at all. LOL

Re: Things I Hate (2)


I mean doesnt anyone at Delta or Kohler think before designing? Tiring BS I tell people not to buy form box stores because people sneak parts out of the boxes and return them or the manufacturer doesnt want you to bring it back. Then you end up with hassles from your supplier. My tub came in a different size box and label than what I ordered.....so it begins.... Im telling ya its getting harder every week to resolve stuff

Now look at this dumb design from Delta

Several of theirs and other brands have similar stopper pull issues.

Have to bend the **** out of them to get it to work with stone counters/backsplashes - which is is all anybody uses these days.
