well i have exercised the demons... took it out of the shop and into a big bucket of water, and it started right up. so i let it idle for about 10 minutes and it worked fine. so then i put it in drive and let it go for about 5 and still no problems. some things just dont make sense, but after being a mechanic i've learned that machines have minds of their own. i've fixed hydraulic problems on helicopters by giving it them a swift kick in the ramp.
"yeah we are having a flux in the #2 hydraulic system.."
"hold on just one second sir."
"thank you airman johnson, the flux seems to be gone"
thanks guys for all the advise and help
