yup, the main plant in Muskegon MI for 36 years until I retired the first in '05

Rings, cylinder liners and pistons.

Re: Install question

It was a very good place to work for a lot of years.

Sadly the Auto industry hit the skids so I had the time and retired.

Got bored after a few months and got a job in a General Dynamics plant machining and assembling 1500 HP army tank engines.

That was interesting ... and you took special care, you knew someone's life depended on the quality and precision of your work.

Ahhh, a fellow GD worker. I started at Electric Boat in 1963 in Nuclear Quality Control. Retired from their Newport (RI) engineering facility in 1992. I ended up labeled as a troubleshooter and was plopped here and there for about 20 years. Also, I'd burn out, leave to do something else interesting, then return when there was an interesting crisis to solve.

Amanda,
No I'm not hell bent on doing it myself. The "How To" is not a problem for me but if Hughes is willing to be on the hook for the cable replacement if or when it"s needed then I'm more than Okay with that. Thanks for you attention to this minor worry.
