A cool story about a good guy that saved my butt.
I have a cool story. Over the memorial weekend I went camping in Coosbay OR with my family. On monday it was time to leave, my truck started, then immidiately died. I couldnt figure out what was keeping it from running. I replaced the CPS and tried, still no luck. While I was at NAPA in Coosbay (thank god they were open) I ran into a saint. His name is Rob Gourley and he is a heavy equipment/ aviation mechanic that happens to be a Ford Diesel enthusiast. He took time out of his memorial day to come save my *** by using his diagnostic software. He found out that my FICM, (Fuel Injection Control Module) had went out. HE JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE A SPARE IN HIS WORK TRUCK! I offered to pay him shop rate for coming out to save the day. He didnt want any money but I made him take 100. He gave me his FICM which is a dealer only part at for it goes for around a grand. He gave it to me on good will, I found another used one (the only one in oregon in a used parts warehouse) and sent it to him yesterday. The world needs more Rob Gourleys. Because of this, I dont feel used for constantly being the guy that always has to help move, help fix the car, help build something... It is good to be good to people and go out of your way to help someone in need. We as a culture need to instil some old school charictor back into the society. Everyone is so full of hate and dispize, its consuming our generation. If you read this, appreciate helping people. its good for your sole and it rubs off onto your family and friends and random others you will meet throughout your life. Be good and walk in the light. Treat others like you want to be treated. And always remember, respect isnt given, its earned.
