Post #7667 is where the problem begins (began); multi-quoting above that works, multi-quoting starting on the next page works again.

So, I looked at the post... YouTube videos surrounded with IMG tags, not URL tags, that seems to be what screwed things up.

I replaced with URL tags, multi-quoting on that page seems to work again.

So, was that something I did? And it impacted me, only?

Edit: Answered my own question - followed the link you supplied. Thankfully it wasn't me. But, thanks to you for getting it found and then fixing it.

Today I ripped my intake back off after my Fail-Pro 1250-S3 gaskets didn't seal due to the stupid exhaust crossover blocks causing the intake to do a teeter tot and not seal right. Didn't even get to fire it up, filled my #4 intake port with coolant too. I suggest anyone who wants to run 1250-S3's DO NOT glue those exhaust crossover plugs over the hole like the instructions say to do. The instructions say to do it exactly as I did it and it didn't work. I contacted felpro on that.... Good thing I noticed the external leak otherwise I'd probably be replacing a connecting rod or 2 right now...

just getting started, seems like im spending more time and money, getting equipment and tools to get started with, bought welder, (craigslist), bought air compressor and air tools ( god bless " craigs list"). i have managed to knock some rust down with the wimpy tools i had, and managed to locate and replace driver door regulator.
So far, 800 on truck,,,,, and 1000 on equipment to work on truck. seems a little backwards, but from here on "moving forward"

got started today, put regulator in window, (not much of a first challenge, but had to start somewhere). bought welder and compressor, W/nice assortment of air tools, worked a bit on some rust on the hood, sanded and primered. like i said, doesn't seem like much but made me feel like a million....

That's the best excuse out there. Anything else, and she can blame the truck directly. It works best if you spread the blame around like that...

My wife is smarter than that and I'll bet yours is as well. When I bought a truck out of a field and tried to explain it was the truck's fault she knew better since I'd bought the truck - therefore it was my faulty decision making. However, once Dad gave me his truck and I undertook the "restification" thereof it has been easier to get her to buy that it is the truck's fault. So, go find one that has sentimental value and then blame it.

DMarsh, where at in KY are you? Im moving back to the Louisville area next year. If you are in that area you are more than welcome to stay in contact and use my tools.

3.5 MB is still over 3x larger than I'd try to upload. The max size allowed is 1024 x 768 pixels, 976.6 kB (just under 1 MB) but I kinda doubt that's the problem as I'd think the software should reduce it for you.

However, 3.5 MB might still be so far out of the size limits that it can't handle it, I'd guess it could be a mathematical error because the numbers are just too big. Kinda like trying to divide by zero.

Many pictures are 100kB or less in size; think of the people with slow Internet connections (e.g. dialup) they're gonna get pissed off and leave if it takes 10 minutes to download a single forum page.



Again, I don't know for a fact that this is your problem, but try uploading something more reasonable in size and let me know what happens, OK?
