dude needs to know that 99percent of times shyte like this happens, it is his own fault. And babysitting that aint gonna help.
Tell it as it is, and dont celine dion it. But why not make it fun?
If YOU dont like it, maybe you need to invest in some software or other and actually try to help the guy apart from saying start over again. Any idiot can say that. Mind you, I am not calling grc an idiot, I just think he had a bad hair day, and will either 1 chose not to respond or 2 ha may post some actual wiring and stuff and post valuable life lessons, such as how these pontiacs suck in the pdc dept.
And yep, I said I would not defend, yeah I just kind of did. At op, this is supposed to be a fun site. An interactive one.
@grc, if you think I am solely responsible for lack of traffic, so be it. My take on this is, when a newbie comes around, make him comfortable, and give him some true tested bay advice, such as, if you f with it, look again, much like you said and wrote, not much more from you.
If I went to a site and asked a question, and all I got back as a response was to look again, I would be like yeah, that f ing helped.
if the newbie never posts back, well that is a good thing, cuz 1 he probably understood from my first post he did not need to remove that for a power steering line / pump problem. But he did. And at that point, we can only assume the position.
If op realist, he will do as you said, and he wont report back cuz that is exaclty where the problkem was. You dont like the style of message, open your own church on how to baby ppl.
@op, welcome to the site. stick around, it can be fun. I am the motorhead gear guy that some like to put all is bad on my arse. Im am actually fine with that, cuz at end of day, I just rely on experience, and that is hard to communicate in the internet form, so I use and abuse videos to help my languish lacking skills.
Do you have the schematic for the starting circuit? That "power distribution" isn't going to help much. I feel pretty confident that the big cable from battery to starter, and grounds, are OK; didn't get disturbed by the fuse/relay panel removal.
Without getting into the present feud... I advise the OP to have somebody else check the work. I find that if I make a mistake, when I check things over I tend to "see" them the way they are supposed to be, not the way they actually are. the only way to escape this loop is to get a second pair of eyes involved, or leave the job for a long enough time that you are resuming with "new" eyes.
