Nope. Gave up on the carbs last night. Going to try again today, and even dig a bit deeper into doing a valve adjustment while it is this far apart.

Your school budget must be killing it.  I wonder if someone went into meltdown waiting for your print job to finish.  HAHA.  When I was teaching at Temple, we had a couple of faculty that would print their chapters out on the department copier so their students wouldn't have to buy the books.  It suuuuuucked getting behind them just to copy an invoice.

Haha that did happen actually. New guy too. I actually went around to everyone in the department that uses that printer (except the new guy) and asked if it would be a problem haha felt bad, but he got over it lol he wasn't actually having a meltdown. And I pay the school for copies when it's something big like this. 5 cents a page, so is still cheaper and less wait than getting one from feebay.

Finally got these things loose. Big thanks to checkered past cycles own Ted Tackett for web support.



Then I found this. Wish I knew the story on how this happened...
