To Warren and all others that responded…
Well alrighty then… I think I’ll go out and fettle the E, but then
there might be a few other things I need to fettle first… Hmmmmm, I
could probably get in trouble with this really quickly

By your context I can speculate on what “fettle” means but I’d
really like to know for sure
Here it is from the highest authority: Oxford English Dictionary
FETTLE: Condition, state, trim; to be in (good, high, etc.) fettle.
FETTLE: verb. 1.To make ready, put in order, arrange. Also to groom (a
horse), attend to (cattle). 2. To ‘do for’ (a person), to beat.
