    To get 'under the hood'. the top hinged on the (I think) the right side. Look for hidden hinges.

    So far all I've found is a nut on the bottom side of the top - I tried to pivot the cover after I took the nut off but it didn't go very far - I tried to lift and pivot and I tried to lift it off - I don't like taking those pressure regulators apart so I will probe some more. I think I like that machine - seems very well made and lightly used.

    You are right - I wlll leave that pink (female) controller on Rodney so he won't miss her controlling ways. I almost woke up DH when I read that...

    Miriam, when are we going to see a photo of "Rodney?" I am really curious about this machine! Is Rodney something you just named this machine, or does it say Rodney on the machine?

    Rodney says RODNEY right smack across the front - I'm up to my eyeballs doing 3 days work in 2 so I'll have to shoot Rodney sometime when things settle down

    Yes I can see the belt. But I missed out on the fabulous deal, mostly due to myself. I have my eye on another featherweight I just need to convince my son to go for a drive this weekend. lol!

    It could also mean that the washer under the hand wheel knob is up side down. If the motor runs and it turns the hand wheel that would be the first thing I would check. Cheap fix too! ~G~

    Miriam, you need a stallion in your herd so be sure to use the camera when you shoot him.

    I am back home now after surgery on Wed. Things are going slow but getting better every day. I missed a lot of reading on the board but DH has kept me up to date. He has found out that he is very busy during the day doing what I usually do and what he usually does but he is doing quite well at it.
    Trish I just went back and read this post! I hope you are doing great after having surgery!
