Well,...how can we give answers of value , if we don't know how much time he has actually spent evaluating the situation,..we could spend a lot of time sourcing information (as I often do ) and then find out the guy already knows the answer to most of it , right?

My point being, removing a supercharger is probably not a job for a first timer,..and it is hard to get a feel for the persons skill level with little feedback,...

Haha..that's funny. That's how you determine a persons mechanical ability? By asking if they even looked under the hood?

Nah man, I mean this in the nicest possible way, but that's flat out the wrong attitude.

Back when I was on the Lightning boards, we used to give complete beginners (first timers) instructions on how to remove the superchargers on their Gen 2 L's without first trying to ascertain if they had big boy pants on and could handle the tools.

It's not up to us to figure out if someone is capable. This community is here to share info and help people. We don't test them first to find out if they have the prerequisites to process the info they need to help them out.

Exactly ,....there you go , but until now , I had no feeling for the amount of time you have spent trying to diagnose your problem. I see MANY pleas for help go unanswered to never be bumped by the mods. At least I try to help. Most of my questions go completely unanswered .

You must be confused..I'm not trying to diagnose my problem, i know it. And you are not "trying to help". First you criticized me for asking a second opinion, then when I bumped my thread you replied by saying "maybe you should ask a second opinion"...You have added nothing helpful to this thread.

This is a user populated and driven site, not one dependant on moderators.

This specific forum doesn't have a lot of traffic, not like the Excursion forum or the diesel forums, so the nicer members are to other members, the better it will be.
