Oh NO!!!  Not another one for A.B.'s required reading list!!! <g>

I wholeheartedly agree with Carol and Randy!  I thought the purpose of this
group was to share information and experiences.  A.B. - if you don't want to
answer questions - that's fine - but don't condemn people who ask questions
that you can find answers to in your shop manual.  I learn from the dialog
that goes on in this group.

If I had unlimited resources - I'd buy every book and manual out there - and
then I'd still be asking questions.

As I have to pay the mortgage and buy parts for my LBC, I find it convenient
to tap the vast wealth of knowledge of others in this group.  

By the way - A.B. - your knowledge is very much appreciated!
