Thank you, GA_Ironhead. DR DICK has posted here for almost 7 full years.

This thread is to contain only links to threads or posts originated by DR DICK, or to which he has made a major contribution. Links may be to the thread or to an individual post within a thread. Any member of XLForum may make suggestions.

This thread is locked so that only myself can edit it. To include an entry please send me a PM including the thread or post title and link. I will copy the title and link into this thread.

When more posts have accumulated I will organise this into sections such as Clutch, Transmission, Electrical, etc as indicated by the content of the submissions.

EDIT: OK, I started a few sections; will continue as more threads are submitted; suggestions always welcome by PM
