But it's often those pesky complicated things like electrics and carburetors that defeat so many people. The more complicated things become the harder it is for "home mechanics" to fix them.
This is true.

Years and years ago, well before the internet, I was fortunate enough to have relatives who would show me how to work on engines and systems. I try to help others as much as possible now and appreciate the forums, such as this one, to help with issues. Even though I have had some serious set-ups in other vehicles, I prefer simple mechanics. My 6v Beetle and points XS650 are my most enjoyable vehicles. Nice and basic.
Unfortunately many are not as fortunate as some of us to have had this help. Or, like some sellers I've met, they don't take advantage of this help and damage components.
