For me, reading "...a healthy guy could have gotten an engine running with it.." is the equivalent of hearing fingernails running down a black(chalk)board, mate.
This ugly, American, bastardisation of the English language really gets on my tits, son.
Thank you for your comment. Although grammar and spelling errors bother me as much as the next person it is time consuming enough to create a 36,000-word technical document that is accurate. Unfortunately, to make it grammatically flawless without benefit of an independent proof reader would require far more time than I could hope to devote to it. So, sadly, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find examples in this thread of dangling participles, split infinitives and other grammatical atrocities. I envy anyone who does better under the circumstances.
