Technician: Wayne, Engine Rebuilder replied 10 months ago

Thank you for that

No there is no extension for that

I suggest to cut the cord, and splice in a piece of cord

I hope this helps you

Hi. If this helped you

Please rate my answer 4 or more stars.

That is the only way I get credit for the question

or the money you paid stays at JA and I get nothing for my time.

If you need more info use the REPLY button

Not the Poor/Bad service.
