Feel kinda dumb, pulled the main relay back off and was checking it out and for some reason i gave it a small shake, rattle rattle rattle, sounds like something broke off in there, gonna pretty much put that at the top of the suspect list. Will do after dinner, hopefully it works..

edit: I get to order it, like usual, local parts guy is completely clueless
so this was rather funny. ended up being a poorly mounted rotor, well the rotor itself was mounted well, but whatever it is called that it mounts too (the big star bolt) came loose. funny thing is that I checked it, and it must have been sitting in there perfect the first time.... second time it all fell out in my hands, go figure

happy easter! thanks for the help
