    Default RicardoMarine Repair Book

    Ricardo with all the knowledge that you have about VP you should write a trouble shooting book. Even if you just compiled what you have posted on the forum. I think I have now read most of your posts and have learned more than I probably will ever need. My problem is not being able to remember it all. LOL

    Thank you for the compliment.
    Had I done that 30 years ago, it may have been successful.

    I agree on the potential limited success of a book, but if you could arrange to do YouTube videos on VP repair, you would "kill" the competition. I have no doubt that VP, many parts suppliers. etc., would line up to sponsor you...

    Thank you again....... but my time was spent specializing in the AQ series, of which ran up to and through year 1996 in the gasoline engines, and up to year 2000 in the diesel engines. If I were to have done this, I should have done it years ago.

    Lol,...... But, but, but...... if you crank up a "search engine" you find that the definition for "motor" includes "engine".

    So that must mean a
    "search engine" = "search motor".
