Spib, I too know that feeling. You're pretty daring, tho'. I've had my run ins wirh E. Wenatchee gendarmes many years ago in a '66 Fairlane with a 428 CJ in it. Was a less than fun experience, those guys are pretty anal.

Unfortunately I don't have a long paved driveway so I have to abuse my neighbors on the street. My close neighbors are pretty cool and tolerant of me (up to a point).

Here's me being impatient on a rare sunny day last January. No harm no foul.

Spib,
Make sure that you don't have an air pocket or that the probe is not fully submerged in the water while the water pump is running. This can cause it to not read properly. It's a little tougher, but you can always take the gauge probe and put it in boiling water from your stove. It should read the 212.

Good luck,
Bill M

Yeah, neighbors aren't too bent about my behavior.

Been pretty quiet around here the past few months but that's about to change. Falcon should be ready to fire again later this week. Then we'll see just how patient the neighbors are.
