$100,000 There does that make anyone feel better? Sorry but I am just not a hand wringer. I deal in facts and reality and the simple FACT here is that no one knows what is wrong and it is pointless to guess and throw dollar figures around at arm chair diagnosis that have been conducted from a thousand or more miles away. I will say in my experience bad noises usually are less costly than when everything just goes quiet. Terry will know soon enough. Until then I will just hope he wasted his time taking the motor out for so minor a fix.
