    What a ride. I had to send the 355 to FOH since it wouldn't start. It would turn over easily, but wouldn't start. Well after a few days I got the news that they got it started. They said the fuel pumps were turning too slowly. They swapped a unused relay for the pump relay and it starts. Great, they start to back it out for a test ride and no-power brakes. This happened once and it cleared itself up. Well this turned out to be the pressure switch on the power assist that was stuck open ($950 switch). Ok, now we're ready, nope another call was temperature was running too high. Thermostat and sending unit for fan later and now were running. I quess this is good that everything happened while it was there, but what a ride.
