Boy, and I thought the newly discovered no hot water or no furnace heat were trouble!!!

Suska,

I had the same thing happen to my 'Bird and I had Randy weld it back in place and then he added some gussets to the mount, as it looked like it had been broken previously and welded back in place.

I see a potential candidate for the BROKEN BUT HERE award to be given out again at 2009 'Birds at the Beach (Myrtle Beach, SC) that is unless Heck-man would like to get in the running for the award again this year, don't forget to bring it with you John.
