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. Hagar. PS : Louanne always said -- you do not walk --you strut . So be it --proud as a Peacock.
