‘mouse’s first law of small engine re-building - teleporting parts :: 'mouse :: 1
    TAGS: chainsaws

When a tiny spring clip flies off into space as you are rebuilding the top-end of a small engine (replacing the cylinder head and piston on a chainsaw, for example) you should search your entire shop and flush out the bottom-end several times to be extra careful, however, you should not be surprised when aforementioned spring clip magically re-appears inside the new cylinder head (which I swear was still in a sealed bag at the time the clip disappeared and which was inspected several times before installation) so that when you start up the engine it destroys the brand new piston and cylinder head and leads you to have to order all new parts and rebuild the damn thing again.
