I have never heard of a good response from ECI. Someone has to have had a good response. Would love to hear from someone that ECI stood behind. Seen too many ECI failures that were were not stood behind.

Yes.... Here's one:


The case split open even more when removed from the engine mount.

Great job, Greese, on a flawless landing.

OFF TOPIC, but perhaps useful, give the recent Photo Follies.

When I use a Chrome browser, Bob's photos are not displayed. I can use the quote button, and the photo link address is there to see.

When I use Firefox, the photo is displayed. The link address is identical.

When I use Internet Explorer 11, the photos are not displayed. Again the link address is identical.

Had to open this in Mozilla Firefox to see the pictures.

Bob's pictures really make the story come to life. Great job!
