Hah, that's nothing!
Once when I was in school, eons ago, I modified the carburettor of my 
motobike to improve airflow, tinkered with it and fixed it back. The 
darn bike won't start and spent many hours over 2 days to try to remedy.
I gave up and pushed the bike about 3 miles to the mechanic with a 
sheepish "I messed up". The mechanic gave the bike a once over and put 
gas in the tank and the darn bike started with a hearty roar.

So, I disagree, when you can't see anything but the brick wall, go see 
your mechanic!
