    my idiot friend who was lucky today!

    my mate said he was gonna service his car this morning, said id give him a hand and he said no im fine, went round anyway to find he was half way through, helped him finish then he turned the engine and it wouldnt start.

    right, what you done, plugs, oil, air and fuel.

    had a check of the plugs and the fool hadnt removed the cardboard sleeve for the threads, said he thought it was a crushable gasket! luckily managed to get the bits out the chamber and now it runs ok, very lucky man!

    There's only 4 plugs to blow out at high speed, not too much chance of being impaled
