Figured I would share this sense it's pretty funny..
So the other day A kid got a hold of me looking at a 7.3 powerstroke that was running kind of funny.
he brought it over to my house and as we are looking at it he says, could it be the spark plugs?
I laughed and said, yeah I herd that joke also lol
He said huh? No, I think there under the valve covers like a hemi..
I looked at him with a stupid face and asked if he was serious?
He says yeah, hemi's have the spark plugs in the valve covers! Crazy huh!?
I said no, your seriously asking me if a diesel has spark plugs..?
Well how the heck else can it run?
I said, it gets ignition from the piston compressing the fuel in the combustion chamber dude.....
He said, what? That makes no sense, your full of it. How dose it get spark from the motor to be able to run.?
I explain how it all works and fast forward to a few days later..
He calls me just cursing up a storm!
Says I was full of **** and I owe him a new motor in his car???
I ask how on earth I owe him a new motor and he said this...
YOU TOLD ME MY MOTOR WILL RUN USING THE COMPRESSION FROM THE PISTON! SO I TOOK OUT THE SPARK PLUGS AND PLUGED THE HOLES AND NOW MY MOTOR WONT RUN, OR TURN OVER AND I HAVE GAS LEAKING OUT THE SIDE OF MY MOTOR!!
