How does one become a happy DIY ? ---- one way is to have a diesel
"Expert" totally screw up on your diesel.----- (my start).
Another way is to get infected with the spirit from a site like this -- to learn that
getting her going is only one part of it and saving money is not the most important
It is a complex mixture of emotions and feelings of pride and accomplishment.
In my case ? --yes I am a FANATIC DIY ---and it all started with a Crystal Set in
or about 1940. If your wife is a fanatic shopper --you all know what I mean.
Spending 2 dollars worth of gas to save a dollar on sugar.
After the crystal set there was NO looking back Radio Ham , Chemistry set , Photography
need I go on ? (EAA too).
And NOW ? ---DIY computer work. I never gave it a thought that I would get
computer help from a diesel gang. But that is exactly what happened. (thank you).
Compaq Presario Pentium III 511 MB ram windows ME Outlook express 6.
and a phone line connection.--- A Volks hookup you might say ? Right.
IMHO there is a reason that Volks with so many smarts wind up with VW diesels.
Take one completely apart --- and tell me you are not impressed ? --- they still
blow my mind.------but keep in mind that they are light duty HIGH speed diesels.
They like lots of revs the best. (1977 to 1986).
So if you are debating DIY or not ? jump in , the water is fine.
Hagar. (the grateful).
PS: shit I just found out that I am not the elder any more. (only 72).
