Note on fire extinguishers ... Every Spring and Fall turn your fire extinguishers up-side-down several times. The powder tends to pack too tight for extinguishers to work properly. It is important to invert extinguishers back and forth until the powder flows as you it is inverted. One can tell if the powder inside is packed by a distinct thud as the powder plug will slid down and hit the end of the extinguisher.
Pictures really help.
Probably be smart for me to do that as well appreciate the tip. I don't have any gas leaking on the diesel engine luckily. Gas will pop out a hole in the header on the pony that appears to be an overflow hole but when I look at the parts catalog for it it appears there should be something in that hole and it's not overflow I'm not sure though.

"I also joined a year ago. had been on here a couple of times as a non-member and found the info very helpful so I got a one year subscription (not very expensive at all) to try it out. I really like all the resources on here so I just got a three year. I think its a very small price for what you can get out of this site."
