Maybe the old timers would like to share their tips and techniques with the nubes.
I was thinking of starting a Bus Building Tech Tips thread over in the Conversion Tutorials How to's.
You guys think it's a good idea or a waste of time?
Will the old guys help out?
Post opinions in this thread ... including the mods and those administering this thread.
If there's no use for it ... no hard feelings.
I know that I would find it very useful if we had some sort of Audobon Field Guide to engines and transmissions. Reading this forum for a couple of years, I have absorbed a lot of knowledge about which engines and transmissions are or are not desirable, and why. But I can't look under the hood and figure out what I'm looking at. When I see "Caterpillar" stamped into the valve cover, that's a good hint. When I see 6 individual valve covers instead of one long one, I know that should be a hint but I'm not sure what it's telling me.
A few pics plucked out of the archives or off the Net with "with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us" would be greatly appreciated.
I do know that I'm asking for actual volunteer work here, and it's OK if it doesn't get done. Come the time I actually know anything, I'd be happy to contribute.
