Default i need my account deleted

i have never seen such an unhelpful bunch in my life. i dont give a rats ass about how i shouldnt do something. the motorcycle forums i belong to will tell someone how to do something regardless of how they feel about whether it should or shouldnt be done. if i wanted to be treated like this i'd ask my wife for advice.

I'd say he has 'mad skillz' judging from what he's said about his mechanical experience.

Default Re: i need my account deleted

I just read his posts. I feel sorry for the guy - there seem to be some major issues in his life.

In the A/C thread, people suggested things to try and troubleshoot the problem and he got angry and blew them off. The best answer was that because of the ambient temps, his concern (aux cooling fan not kicking in when the AC was started) couldn't be duplicated.

In the E-85 thread, I agree. Most posters were venting their personal agendas about E-85. He did finally say it was probably a bad idea.

In the More power from the SOHC w/AT thread, he seemed to come around to the idea that the best route was to source a Twin-Cam engine and trans, but then he went ballistic again.

Help and suggestions were offered from people who know their subjects. It is his choice to diss them; and his loss.

Charlie, Can you help Bucky Katt with his latest request?

We're talking about an 85HP SOHC TBI 1.9... there isn't much you can do to it. All I see are people telling him this. It's a bit of a waste of time.

I normally would not respond to this sort of thing, but as I read all the posts I saw that several members had taken a good amount of time to explain the processes involved in upgrading, the parts needed, and the approximate cost (which the poster emphasized was a big factor).

SaturnRaycer is right. Help was offered from responsible SaturnFans who did not want to see a FELLOW MEMBER make a wrong decision and spend a lot of money on a daily driver with 450,000 miles.

If he wants to mod, he should be looking more at working on his 1970 car as the result could be much more satisfying and would not leave him without transportation while he was doing the work.

Doesn't matter, he said he just wanted to give it some extra push, not turn the thing into a racer; and who are we to care if it's a 'waste of time', maybe not to the OP. It's his time and money, not ours.

I could care less if it was his own time & money. When he disses people with foul language who have given their advice & who have been here for awhile, he gets what he deserves. He asked for an opinion, and our members gave their's. Nobody was rude to him. They just laid the cards on the table for him. If he had any class and disagreed with them, he should have kept his mouth shut.

End of story.
