A LOT, a hell of a lot and fast. ---- Why ? I am guessing : My brain was damaged in about
1938 ---- and for some reason ---I can connect at will to my unconsious mind ,
Something normal people can not do. Sort of an Idiot savant.
So when I analyze a problem ----all 73 years of experience --is accessible.
Yeah that is both good and BAD. ----- Dachau ---keeps popping up.
So how does a really good DIY start ? -----one of two ways----- Radio -or Rockets.
So all the diciplines are useful as a fanatic Rabbit diesel DIY. Physics , Chemistry, Glasblowing,
machining , welding , woodwork, ---hell the list is a mile long. Yes Val I did lots of
photowork too. I still have a lot of the equipment. ---- NOW? , I use digital.
So it was natural for me to become a groupleader ---in "Hillbilly Tuning".
Normal wisdom has it -- "That you can not time a diesel by ear" ---in the case
of Rabbits 1977 to 1984 both NA and Turbo -- that is incorrect. Read or ask
Sandy Cameron --- could he tell a difference by ear ?. Not only can they be TUNED
that way ----not by ear alone. BUT you better do it or miss the boat.
If they have any kind of wear ---that is the only way of getting optimum performance
Specs and dial indicators are NO USE. -----In hillilly tuning do you need a dial indicator ?
YES. And the more equipment you have ----great we use every trick in the book
and then some.
I can tell I am getting through with the message ----we are gaining converts.
PS : Louanne always said -- you do not walk --you strut . So be it --proud as a Peacock.
