Re: put your build thread in your signature

Jim it really helps those of us who answer a lot of the questions that pop up to know what a guy or gal is working on when they ask an often simple question. Ogre thinks Task Force and I think AD most of the time. We sometimes give an answer for one and the question is actually on the other and the answer doesn't pertain like it should.

Some of us draw from a lot of years of experience with these trucks and some of us are real good at searching out the info and sorting it out so that the info we provide is solid and viable and real help to the one asking the question.

I had to go back and change an answer yesterday because after seeing another poster's answer I did a bit of research that backed up what he had written and showed that what worked with 10 SI and 12 SI alternators didn't work with the newer alternators and would possibly have caused serious issues. That was my education for the day.

Ditto that!

My wife looks at my garage and offers, "If you'd just focus on one of these it would get done" but then she notices the look I give her and drops it.

My '54 cab is upside down on a rotisserie, the '67 cab still rests on its frame but nothing else is there, an old BMW motorcycle is on the lift and almost street-ready, an old Triumph Trident is in the corner just waiting its turn, bed parts, fenders, doors, and hoods for two stepsides are everywhere, etc., etc.

I have loads of pictures to organize into build threads someday but it won't be real soon.

And my wife keeps hinting that the house needs my attention.

_Ogre, no problem with your "analism", I took your request and went back and got my signature more better. Here, look below.

Re: put your build thread in your signature

I have challenged everyone to help one of our own, SKYMANGS, the S10 swap sticky thread author was severely injured in a fire at his shop. A detail of the events can be found here http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=676217 There is a GoFundMe page setup to help him and his family with expenses. Advance Design brilliantly incorporated the link http://gofundme.com/c49h5mjx8 into the signature, that way it automatically is posted on any thread you have replied on. Please help spread the word and link up your signature to "Ole Sarge's" GoFund me link and let's help one of our own.

Re: put your build thread in your signature

I did all my others with no problems. It's been a while since I've been on here and I tried adding my Cadillac and it works but when I click on my link it takes me straight to a search engine instead of my thread. All of them work but the Cadillac. Maybe I have too many cars? haha

Re: put your build thread in your signature

glad it helps

always good to see a bump up to the top, i see a lot of builders that don't use this or any description
i post a lot in the electrical forum, always have to ask what truck they're working on
