If you haven't figured it out yet:
When you use the symbol ' to abbreviate something, it takes the place of the
letter(s) you are
removing. Do not becomes don't. 1968 becomes '68.
When you use ' after the number, it means feet. And " means inches.
A 5'10" tall person is 5 feet 10 inches tall.
But you do know what he needs, so why not help the guy instead of BUG(ging)
him with 2 useless replies?
Looking at older topics he own's a '68 westy.
As for fish, try aircooled.net or do a google search with a part# if you
I'm sure you will come up with something
The English language is screwed up enough without throwing ignorance and
illiteracy into the
equation. His way of writing it does not speak well of the US school system.
Ignorance may be bliss,
but don't encourage stupidity. #2 here:
Why should I have to search to find out what vehicle HE owns??
He should be doing a vender search and finding out that the only sheet metal
available new is 73-79.
If he wants used then he should post a free want ad on www.thesamba.com
Well thank you for the typing and English lesson.
You seem to be rather infatuated with length. Compensating for
It seems rather strange to me that a person who presumes to be of
greater intelligence would not be able to understand that I was
referring to the year 1968 regardless of where the(') was placed. How
many years beyond high school did you spend educating yourself? I spent
only four. I have found that much beyond that your common sense begins
to deteriorate, with the obvious exception of the medical field.
I feel sorry for you. The only avenue available to you for self
expression is on a web forum dedicated to those who want to discuss
topics related to VWs. In the future, if you have no usable input for
those seeking help with a problem, please do not comment at all. I am
certain others feel the same way.
Roger - thanks for your help:)
Writing as an Englishman I find your outburst amazing. Screwed up refers
to paper, one who sells is a vendor, and one who throws stones in a glass
house is a prat.
If you cant help the guy shut the **** up.
Oh! please excuse my use of American slang!
I was going to point that out, but decided to check on that dictionary.com
link. Looks like vender is actually an alternative spelling, but since
there has been no reply yet explaining the origins of the 'vender'
spelling I guess he didn't know that :).
I have never seen vender used before though.
I thought about checking to see if "vender" was an accepted spelling
by people who are inbred and stuff but figured the poster I was
responding to wasn't worth the time. I still think that. ;-)
this coming from someone that passes out blatantly WRONG mechanical
information, then defends it? You truely are a perfect example of what you
describe above. in your case "ignorance" truely is bliss. Care to discuss
how a vacuum advance works? then we will discuss the plethora of reasons
why your post is not only disrespectful, but down right ignorant in itself.
You do recognize the name of this newsgroup, yes? It surely isn't an english
nor school group, so please don't play grammar nazi, it is the sign of an
amateur. On second thought don't post at all since you have YET to get any
of your information you offered correct. Thank you in advance for your
How about we leave that poor lonely soul alone for a while.
He is not worth the energy any longer.
So back to topic.
After getting some USEFUL feedback (it's been a while) from this and
other forums (is that forums or forum's) I have decide that the nose
isn't messed up enough to go through the pain and agony of clipping in
a nose. Although I did find one, at aconsiderable price. The best idea
I have heard is bringing the van to a shop with a frame straightener
and have them pull the nose out a bit so the doors, with some
additional convincing, will fit properly again.
Yeah right Buckwheat. Get a vacuum gauge and a long piece of vacuum hose. Tee
into the ported vacuum
hose going to your vacuum advance unit and drive your vehicle. Watch what
happens to ported vacuum.
If you can't do both, then see if you can find a friend that do one or the
other. You do have a
Crow is a dish best served warm.
Don't you have something else to do, or some place else to be?
Are you that lonely and pathetic with such low self esteem that you
find it necessary to respond in such a juvenile manor?
The first step is admitting you have a problem.
I bet that was to suttle for such a high brow as yourself.
Shut up and go away........ass clown!
Hmmm, replying with technical advice is being an ass clown?
Wow, not only are you illiterate, but you can't even comprehend what someone
"Get a vacuum gauge and a long piece of vacuum hose. Tee into the ported vacuum
hose going to your
vacuum advance unit and drive your vehicle. Watch what happens to ported vacuum."
Go polish the chrome on your bicycle and come back when you want to learn
something instead of
running your mouth.
i suggest you do the same. I have a vacuum guage on my Torino GT, and i can
tell you you are wrong. Not only that i can post links to disprove your
incorrect information you are posting. It does not seem necessary since
everyone here seems to have a working nose and can smell your crap. (BTW
replying with tech advice is not being an assclow, however offering up
grossly incorrect information even after being corrected, does make you an
assclown.(since you are a grammar nazi, note that "assclown" is one word)
Hey jerkoff, FISH used the words ass clown. I see you are just as ignorant as he
is. You can't read
or comprehend either.
And that piece of shit gauge in your Torino was probably a 'fuel economy' gauge
and you were dumb
enough to believe it.
How come YOU can't make any of your so-called correct info magically
appear from your google search?
Oh, I know why..... you mis-spelled it and you really looked here:
