    Check and top up blinker fluid as needed.

    That blinker fluid is not ULC or CSA listed in Canada so don't bother asking or looking for it....you will find nothing. :eek:

    A 16 oz bottle. That's huge for blinker fluid. I always thought you had to be 1D 10T certified to get a bottle that big.

    Me thinks it is the frigid weather affecting the cerebral cortex to blame for all this.
    At this moment:
    24 degrees F in Baraboo.
    31 degrees in Kansas City.
    20 here in Syracuse, and dropping fast.
    I've got the woodstove fired, hoping to salvage my sanity. :)

    I'll see your one stove,
    raise you a basement stove and a loaf of banana bread in the oven.

    Welcome, Cooper.
    Do keep asking questions.

    I recall that Jimmy Martin came from your town of Sneedville, regarded to be "The King of Bluegrass",
    singing lead in Bill Monroe's "Bluegrass Boys" in the 50's.

    Best source for BS38 floats is 3M at 650Central (original Mikuni, best price). Best source for float needle and seat assemblies is right from Yamaha. Aftermarket ones are hit and miss, many times leaking right out of the box.
