No problem. With the Delvac 1 I use, for instance, I pay $5 to $6 a litre for it, which is an extraordinary deal up here. A certain big equipment company here buys it from the same supplier for half of what I pay, because of the quantities they pur

I agree, I'd also hand clean it, at least the head that was oppened and disturbed, but he's running the engine like that, 800 miles after bolt on and pray. Good luck for him.

My 20 year old Coleman does a pretty good job at keeping things cool. A Yeti might have a little better insulation, but ice is cheap. I can even stand on my Coleman... should I ever find a need to stand on a cooler.

Personally I would get the ladder. If you are afraid of it staying stable, you can get stabilizer bars that keep the ladder from swaying side to side.
