Asking Questions.

Hi Guys and Gals.
When asking a question about your car it might help if your question was asked in full English. Some of us old guys haven't got a clue what your asking because your using abbreviations (as in texting) What make perfect sense to you might not to another. There is a lot of minds on this site with a lot of knowledge that might be having a tough time trying to understand what your asking. English and Spell Check!
Something to think about.

Oh yeah. On a personal note. If I see the word "dizzy" used instead of distributor or dist. again, I'm gonna puke! In 50 years in the automobile business I'v never heard a mechanic refer to a distributor as a "dizzy"! Gah!

Aghhh BB. Cut the original poster some slack. He is really a pretty good sort. I think you are being way too hard on him.

You know, on second thought perhaps I spoke with bias. If someone wants to call a distributor Yolanda who am I to say different? It's ok by me!
