    Just when you thought you've seen it all!

    Well, I have an interesting story for you folks! Today I took in a newly acquired 802 that belongs to a friend, in an attempt to try to give him a hand. He said it runs and makes power but won't rev up to 1800 RPM. He dropped it off this morning, and of course, with about 1,000,000 other things...
