Nice post and interesting follow up. A lot of times we'll give a fellow our best and never hear from him again. So thanks!
And the truth is: We never did help you much. Just steer you in the right direction a little ("Read your darned manual!") and tell you it wasn't rocket science so you'd gain a bit of confidence.
You did all the work - read the manual, made the guage, did the job, etc. So credit where credit is due.
Best part is that lift cover probably won't have to come off again for another 60 years.
