Helping members to help you!

When using Tech Talk, especially if you or your car aren't so familiar to other club members, it can really, really help to give plenty of background information. As much as you can in fact!


It's always handy to know roughly where you are, at least to the nearest big town. That way, if there's a member near by, they may be able to offer some hands on assistance, or if you need a recommendation of where to get a job done, we can try and find somewhere not hundreds of miles away.


Also often useful, but missed out, are what engine and gearbox you've got, in dependant or live axle, carbs or fuel injection, standard or tuned engine.


Of course with a car picked up second hand, you may not know. Don't panic! Photos are your friend here, the more the merrier! (And if you're not sure how to post them, don't worry, we can help you with that too...)


A picture really is worth a thousand words though, sometimes an experienced pair of eyes has been able to spot a fault in a component that didn't even seem related to the part causing trouble!
