Stuart,

Yes, I understand what you mean about nickb2 going "off topic". However, he is also one of the most reliable sources of help here. He is patient in helping people work through some of the most complicated problems; posting schematics, TSBs, trouble-shooting guides from manuals, etc. The odd stuff he posts is fairly harmless. He never blasts anybody personally. My opinion is that the benefit of having him participate here far out-weighs any annoyance from the "gibberish" posts he makes.

Before Bruce Allan & Tony left I was an admin. Have been twisting wrenches since 19 Fifty and Seven.

turning wrenches since 1957 and the word NEWBIE is an oxymoron - your experience would be welcome here, at least for the camaraderie.
A lot of old farts here, we know what a point file is.

Dear @Stuart Anderson

I am most happy Billr said those nice things about me. It was much appreciated;).

Many times I have written this here. If it would not have been for this site, back in 2008, I would have had way to much time f ing with provincial or fed stuff. This site gave me focus, I learned how to write better English. Learned pdf, adobe, and then proceeded to learn how to build and fix computers, laptops, tv's and god knows/etc.

My posting here is somewhat of a acquired taste. Evidently, you did not like that type of wine.

Fine by me.

But as a former admin here, I get your frustration at me. I really do. But will it change my habits? Maybe, if the help I give outweighs, as bill said, my contributions, lots of sites out there.

But like I wrote before, I am partial to this site. Such as you are, if not you would not have wrote gobbledygook.

Anyway, no reason to piss in the wind. I abscond, I am a little boy when I post here.

I don't open porno mags, I read TSB's. ;)

Again, sorry for bad translation, this meant I have never been an admin and neither do I have the inclination or time to do so. But, I do know after so many yrs here on this site, to know what it takes to do that job. And to see that frustrated by goofy guys like, well, I get it.

I hope that corrected what I thought my french brain thought not right in English form.

This however is a common occurrence in my daily job, probably much like you now or in the past, hence my humor. This is a snap shot that was taken at work this Thursday. I asked my GF what was wrong with this picture. She said nothing.:eek: (yrs with me and you don't see it!!

We know (us grease monkeys), no grease on anything, and something way wrong cause major damage to new parts. Lo and behold, talk to the client, the brother in law stoned and drunk and he did the brake job.

I got shit from a vehicle inspector for putting anti squeak lube on pads. Everybody knows you don’t put anything on brake pads.

Looks like the "drunk/stoned" guy installed that pad in the Rotor Resurfacing Position. Every pro knows you only do that for a used rotor, and that looks like a new rotor in the photo.
I am joking.
