    Yes -- that makes sense -- I'd forgotten about the tank vent. The empty space under the cap is basically just an air space for the expanding oil.

    So maybe sealing up the vent elbow isn't a great...

    I don't see brass on the injectors -- I see discolored plastic and an "about to fail" split open fuel line, it's even missing the hose clamp. That's a ticking time bomb - literally -- as once you...

    I explained it above -- monitor battery cable current with a clamp-on DC ammeter while you go around the machine unplugging loads until the current drops. It's not rocket science. If you can't do...
