By Ronald Leard,
This case came from my brother. This was back in the 90s. He asked me, “Hey, Ron my truck only gets up to about 40-45 mph, and it coughs and sputters. What’s wrong?”
I started laughing. “Ah, its nothing. You have a bug in the main jet.”
To make a long story short, I went over with a pair of tweezers and a screw driver. He bet me a 6 pack of Pepsi that I was full of bull. Well, I opened the top of carburetor and looked down into the area the main jets are positioned. I picked up the tweezers and plucked a big bug out of the carburetor. I offered my brother a Pepsi and went home.
Oh well, computers can have bugs in them, so why not a good truck? The reason for the bug? Exxon produced a fuel back in the 90s that attracted bugs.
