Scoob. It's not that bad, it's just expensive as hell.   For some reason I have to fill out the individual weights on the custom form for every single piece in the box.    ....and it has to add up to the shipping weight.  So according to the gobment, I have to use weightless boxes and packing suplies.

For example, an $8 small flat rate box can go to Guam, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or the virgin islands and weight 70#s.

That same box going to Canadia can only weigh 4#s and it's $22.       What's really bad is I can send that same box to Australia for the same money.

The one over the rear axle can be a whore to change. Bleeding brakes is a piece of cake. Don't know why people have a coronary about it.

I probably got spoiled from doing motorcycles all those years.   There's not much in life I like more than having to buy a new caliper when ''I'm almost done'' because of a seized (then broken) bleed nipple.



Plus, I spend HOURS trying to put my nascar pads in my nascar calipers on my nascar spindles, just to learn that I'm still a few hours away.



...just to learn that my rear nascar calipers won't go over my rear nascar brake rotors and there's a gap between my nascar axle flange and my nascar caliper.....


Moral of the story: I thought all those POS's were the same, and Ihate bleeding brakes!  :)

I'm still running a PM. Just fixed one for a customer this week.

If you whacked the motor and it kicked on, its likely a motor, but the switch failures are more common.
Check to see what color switch you have. You should have a grey one. If its black you should replace
it, as those were recalled years ago and most but not all were replaced.
