    looks like an easy fix but if you are not careful getting that filter in and out might be a bit tricky

    With just the general knowledge of gravity even a greenhorn would see a problem here.

    what happened was, he called, stood over my back and told me what he wanted me to do. Said NO to what I wanted to do... I should have just packed up and walked away slowly, but for some reason I decided to do as he wanted, which he could have done himself. my question of "why am i here" was about the job, not this site.

    As to what services, lol, I had the pcv cutter, cleaner, and glue. lol
