If you think you could walk me through on phone does that mean this is potentially not a big deal?
Expert:  Charles replied 7 months ago.

On the phone is much easier, yes. I know the engine well and can get you to test the simple stuff on it. I have sent you the phone offer, I tried the one that you requested, but it did not go through.
