I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

If i have to replace my fridge in the 85 Vanagon, any ideas, because that Dometic RM 182 B is no longer manufactured, and the replacements are slightly different dimensions. HELP!

working on a 62 bug 6V. hot battery. almost new starter. Starter drags, not getting enough voltage from switch. Thinking of going the ford booster relay but not sure how to go about it. Any ideas or better suggestions?

Ive seen 2 different sized bushings for the starter. It doesnt take much slop to adversely affect the starter

I just installed a simple 4 pin relay in my Jetta and it worked great. Starter can now get a good 12V without having to travel through 10 miles of extra wire.
