Thinking of moving my DIY pump build How-to over here
« on: December 07 2020, 01:33:39 PM »
Or should it go on the vortexbuicks site?  10 or 12 posts, around 70-80 pics....

first did it in 2017 on TB.com, board lost all the pics.  people been bugging me about fixing it for a year or so.  cant edit original post, gotta start from scratch

kind of a pain in the ass and this is the last time i'm doing it

Why not both? With Steve's blessing, of course.

I know the feeling. All of my 'how-to's are destroyed over there.

At least my oil pump articles, fuel pump, and a few others are still kickin' at turbobuicks.

I would never use someone else's site as the single source archive of my efforts. By all means publish your instructions here but make sure you have a local copy. Putting it up on two or 3 sites is good diversity too.

Didn’t have much choice as I certainly will not be creating my own website.  “I” didn’t lose any data, I still have all the pics etc.  but when the board “crashed” or whatever and they recovered the backed up text and no pics, the thread became basically useless.  I could fix it in 10 mins if they’d enable editing of old posts but my pleas have fallen on deaf ears so it has to start from scratch with copy/pasted/edited text.    It took a lot more work than I thought it would or I’d never have done it the first time.   99% of it is stuff I learned working at a trans shop and not trade secrets from any of the vendors.

Kinda the reason I put my assembly thread over here. The other board has a history of crashing and loosing data, among other practices.

Well I finally got this monstrosity ready to re-post, even re-sized all the damn pics to fit here, but realized 99 percent of people wanting to view it will have to register here and log in for the sole purpose of viewing the pics.   I can post it and let it happen but is there any alternative?  Better off on the vortex site?  I need direction.  Life is hard.

First, anyone can read it here without registering.  Second, we can put it on vortex which is my site if you want to.
