Its a quirk of this forums software. If you take pictures with a camera which is aware of which way up it is ie cellphone camera the image has metadata which tels it which way it should be. Thats all well and good and means that all image viewers and even regular browsers show the picture the right way up. However this forum software doesnt read the metadata so as the picture was taken with the camera on its side it shows that way unless you click on the picture so it displays only the picture.
There are a few other nasty tricks to watch out for in cell phone pics. If my guess is right I will explain them in a pm. Its an answer you might not want on the forum.

At first I thought it was a john deer motor with all that green paint on it.
So how long before you install it in the truck.

Is the bolt on the top of the boost compensator so you can adjust it on the fly?
