That's it, the end cap for a heat exchanger, the very last part needed for one final project. Finning technician Bryan arrived at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday toting a box of Caterpillar parts and his very heavy tool box down the ramp to the dock. Why is it always low tide when you have a heavy load? He set to work in a challenging spot in the engine room, a tight space with low headroom. RL assisted while I thoughtfully stayed well out of the way. The left-hand engine is now healthy and runs like it should. Rhapsody is good to go.

Major thanks are due to Bryan and to Finning's Parts Dept. for superb customer service. We're a very small customer for a company that handles BIG equipment for major industries, but our needs were met in a very timely manner.
