btw, the '77 Spitfire did the commute from Oakland to Sonoma just fine in the rain...the clutch seemed weird somehow...turned out to be a radial crack that simply pushed the clutch together.....ya, servicin' the pin....the hydraulics twice...who'd a known....something tells me the car dealer (sheister) knew this and seemed a little too happy when I drove it off the lot in San Jose~

it's hard to feel at ease with an 18 wheeler re-tread howlin' in your ear at 70mph with your ass four inches off the ground....'tis a young man's fancy~

to many starting DIYers and mechanics, like myself, you're an inspiration. if you must hang-up the towel, at least check in every now and then to check-up on the many of us that are just now jumping in.

No, fellers---just spending too much time design of an exercise vehicle (executive pedal-car) which stores energy in an hydraulic accumulator need to be re-invented.....better still get away from the computer and some more paintings will be more of a permanent offering than advise to some appreciative...some with NO humor will stay in this symposium forever (or until someone presses the delete button)...but an oil painting will last until it succumbs to the elements...It's been a joy learnin' a thing or two with you fellas~ will check in again as operator_13...if I have to continue doin' this~ thanks for your words of encouragement, you guys~

HANG IT UP! WOW its bad when you have a post saying Hang it up? its like the washed up wrestler who doesn't know when he is done and still thinks he can make it.. but never did! so agree 1000% hang it up...

a thousand must have been terrible at 100 percent is the maximum allowed...your multiple expiatory remarks spank of an uneducated man as sorry that you think that you're all that~ really glad that you've got so much time to dedicate to helping one another...this is important~!?!?!?!?}}}}}}|||||

Sir, not quite certain on "putting people in Harms way" that my friend is entirely subjective and the "dirty dozen" that is to say were issued CarGurus caps and have the courage to take some pride and stand behind the team...we are here to solve your problem in case you missed that meeting....furthermore incapable of having a positive constructive or imaginative posting for the whole world to enjoy...droop down to 'kick a guy in the teeth' dunno why...hate to think that's is not RED you're seein' but GREEN....there ain't nothing wrong with any of my answers....the worst is to suggest replacement parts but always say yes TEST before committing...could PM the dirty dozen, but we are not here to Give people a slap for doing it wrong, rather lead the way to success...I speak for all Gurus when I can assert that between ALL the minds we WILL have the answer for you~ like to think that you are agreeable and on the team....but am having doubts because to post hatred and hateful things goes against the grain of any decent person who's here only to help short, welcome to the team....just tone the areas of concern away from the myopic, but to the big picture...between all of us we can do this...isn't a matter of self- glorification....this is where you perhaps are mis-understanding the intentions here~


so how many user names do you have??? seems like the more I read the worse it looks!!! you log in under other(operator_13's) names and hit Mark helpful to raise your points wow ...REALLY how misleading can you be?????????? how many names do you really have? be honest JUDGE!!!

jimtuttle you are the one who needs to 'hang it up' and stop ragging on Judge Roy. I know for certain he does not give himself points and dude, you need therapy. All that hostility coming out, your insecurities are so evident. And your PM asking me if I need an address, so we can meet in an alley so you can beat up a 60 year old man with a broken spine and a 50 something guy with MS. Your macho-man threats are a clear sign of mental illness. Seek help.
