Allow me to explain.

When I first got my 240D (a couple of years ago), some folks on here were
extremely patient and held my hand while I got used to working in it. Stuff
that is now second nature to me were absolute mysteries at the time. And
even with that experience, I have little in the way of mechanical expertise
to offer in return for all I've received.

So, now I drag home Loren's old VW diesel (with one owner in there between
Loren and me). Working on this, I suddenly feel really stupid again, and
have no diesel list to turn to with this diesel. Oh, I found a forum, but
most of these guys are more concerned with hanging spoilers under their
Passats then they are concerned with maintaining something old.

Made me appreciate how much assistance I've received from our small circle
of experts here.

Growing up I spent a lot of time with my friend Bill's dad in his garage 
watching, and then eventually helping him work on his '68 200D. I knew by 
age 12 I would drive and care for these cars. When I finally got my own and 
started caring for it, I was able to draw upon what I learned in Mr. 
Hounshell's garage and do a respectable job at whatever I tried. After I got 
on the list...even in the early days...things became more clear. It was like 
how I remember getting glasses in fourth grade made everything clear...the 
way Herr Doktor Booth, Pennoff and the rest explained things was so simple 
and clear.


I am often hesitant to try to explain jobs I'm familiar with because I can't 
explain things as you as you others can. I'm on that list with LT Don.

Well, now. Hemp, which is technically cannabis but which you would have to 
smoke six bales of to get happy, yields a good deal of oil from its seed, and 
it probably does make good biodiesel. The fiber of the plant is great for 
manufacture of fabric and rope. 

The stuff used to be one of America's primary crops up until the end of WWII.

Sounds like a plan to me! We need weed-powered diesels!

I will not name names -- no matter how much $$$ I am offered -- ... well ...

Watching the various posts and discussion here today (and over the past few

importantly, which of us (and again, I will not name names) have a long
standing reputation for being really, really smart and good and perhaps even
brilliant.

And then we have some (me included) who are slobbering idiots who know
nothing but always have a comment.
