    Default Knowledge base and the information lost on HB

    A little while back I saw a thread in here about a lot of good knowledge that was lost when HB's forums went out. People mentioned wiring diagrams and stuff like that. The new wiki (see button at top) is the perfect place for all this stuff. I am committed to making it the ultimate boating knowledge base, and you can help. If you are not familiar with a wiki or are having trouble posting to it you can shoot me a PM and I will personally call you to help.

    I don't know crap about the wiki button; however on this site, if anybody needs to know ANYTHING!!! there are people here that know EVERYTHING!!!
    The list is long and distingushed; like Joe Shelfo (Jr. and Sr.), Billy B, Wilkes,Fiat 48, Guru
    Super Dave, and need I mention RCL, or Sammons, Hud, Dossangers, and it goes on and on and on... It has been my expierence that whatever you need to know about a (real boat) there are very knowledgeable folks here that don't mind helping out. That's why we v-drive. STEVE

    It's a shame we can't retrieve some of those tech threads that were on hotboat.

    Life is all about ass, you're either covering it, hauling it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.

    Well fortunately I post on more than 1 board. 3 actually and 2 of them still around.

    But this is exactly how it started.

    Here is one that I whipped up a while back. The three most common GM firing orders. I needed a visual means of comparing the differences. A big difference when viewed as a continuation of the engine running.

    This is a CID chart I made for myself as a quick reference. Put it on the back of my business card also.

    To figure exhaust, Opposite of Intake.

    Dude, thanks for posting this link, I lost it several years ago and couldnt remember the company's name. The Duraspark info and the 385 series info is pretty good!

    Nice, I will start integrating these. I hope to have a tutorial for posting in the wiki here shortly.

    Regarding seeing the wiki button, you might have to clear your cache to see it.
