    It's working now, I just checked it out and it's full of info. I like the fact that it shows lots of pictures, that helps me understand how that stuff works. I think I need to start learning the basics of the truck, my dad says I am lacking basic skills which I agree. Thanks for posting this info for us, I am just a sponge soaking up all of this information.
