Keith is on for tomorrow!

They got a new dual pyrometer in and it didn't fix the problem. They found out that they had sent the wrong style of thermocouple wire with the kit.
Anyway the pryrometer is working and Keith is going to Charlotte in the morning to do more water testing.
Everybody keep their fingers crosssed in hopes of the ECMs will be right.
Maybe we will have a winner by the end of the week and we can put this contest to bed

Keith said he would call me tomorrow for an update. As soon as I hear anything I'll let you all know, Mike.
