The spin pawl looks fine. . . . .  I am just debating whether I should just find another machine on craigslist or somewhere.  Mostly because of how long it's going to take getting my machine back running.  My wife is going crazy already.  How much for your gear?  What kind of oil do I need. . . .  I'll need to see if I can find it locally. 

Thanks

Wow. . . . Thanks!

I'll send you my address via email. . ..   I am all the way in Bend, Oregon.  I can send you a USPS Priority shipping label in a PDF file if that will work for you?

also. . . . am I going to be able to find the oil locally you think?

I have been fishin for the last 2 hours. I caught an old cork and a lawn chair.The only thing biting was the skeeters. Pretty day for it 75 degrees slight breeze out of the gulf. The only thing catching fish were the pelicans. My 2 grand boys enjoyed it immensely.

I'm jealous. .. . .   You were outside in the sun. . ..  I woke up to a fresh blanket of snow and a broken washer.  Glad to hear you got out with your grandsons! 

I have sent a PDF shipping label via email.

Thanks,

Trevor

The label was / is actually for the regular Post Office (USPS) and unfortunately they won't have clue if you were to take it there without the label.  Neither would UPS if I printed a label that way.

The label will have to be printed first.  I have sent it to you again as just a JPG image.  This should work. . . .let me know.   The post office will have a small free box available that the label will work on.

Thanks,

Trevor

OK I found a nice FSP water valve box and I placed the gear that is in the ziplock bag inside the box and I put the printed label on the box and she is ready to go. The UPS store is closed but the UPS guy should swing by here Monday and I will give it to him. I have mailed hundreds of these from my appliance parts store before I retired. I think she will fly.
