    Thanks for all the support guys. This is a great forum with a lot of great guys and gals. I didn’t say I was leaving. I’m guess I’m just frustrated as the others are that ask the same questions and offer the same advice. The OP is stuck on 1 thing and doesn’t want to hear about anything else. Saying he knows it’s good without checking is just dumb. From now on I’m gonna read the thread and then decide if I can or should offer any advice. U can’t help ppl that can’t or won’t help themselves. Yes, my inbox is full. I was gonna become a gold member but haven’t yet. Kim

      Had a member do an ALL capitals rant. Couldn't figure what set
      him off, only made a short comment on it. Not going to debate and get into screaming matches. Seen to many turn into pissing contests.

          You can lead a horse to water. But you cant make him drink. Sometimes questions are asked looking for the easiest solution
          Not necessarily the correct solution. They think its magic. Then there's incorrect info given by someone who's never actually done the repair/cure. Like I've told others. Read everything than make your own decision.

              This place is already such a veritable gold mine of knowledge in what has already been posted
              over the years....
              I've often thought that the biggest feature on the home page should be the SEARCH box, front
              and center, great big!

              Then I remember that millennials have been raised to expect instant service without any effort
              on their part and therefore, probably won't use the Search thingy anyways....
              Kinda depressing, really.:(

                  Done! Now you'll have more message room.
                  George Jets from FABO worked on my hard drive to recover lost data. He wouldn't take a dime for his efforts. I told him I would pay it forward. George just bought your Gold membership and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy!

                        If this post doesn't disappear my post deleting doesn't work.

                        EDIT:You can delete post right after posting. Going to wait until that option disappears. My idea for deleting a post would only work if edit option is still there. If anyone cares.

                              Absolutely took the words out of my mouth! I have been apprehensive to post on this and other forums for this same reason, plus being what is referred to as a late “boomer”, Its embarrassing, being in this minority going into 2020! I suppose computers are as easy or difficult as we make them. I read so many posts on various social media, where people are posting and giving bad information, they are simply re-posting some bogus bs they have read or found somewhere on the interweb, either purposely, because they love to insert more confusion or to stupid to research a little to find and post correct information! This is why I have to stay away from social media sites mostly, I end up wasting my time posting correct information, and someone will argue, not even because I’m wrong, but usually it’s because anyone who’s NOT a regular that posts several times daily, or not in their little “club” of dummies lmao, as someone mentioned about some Mustang forums. These people are in every faucet of the world, even before computers, and what thankfully prompted me to attend one of the very early MoPar only shows, and realized these are my people....!

                                That option disappears, just don't know how many days before it does. Seen a few of my old posts spelling and grammar make me cringe.

                                  I forgot how long the delay is...I believe Joey extended the ability to self-edit a year or so back. Sorry I cannot remember how long that is - it used to be fairly short, like 15 minutes. Maybe it is a few days now.
                                  Anyone can always contact a Mod to have an edit done - within good reason that is. :)
