hi folks,i was alittle disappointed myself by this,and since the posting no one has added where they live ,it is hard to tell a man from canada or new zealand that he can get parts from halfords just round the corner to fit his db,like raymond said 90% of dbs went overseas ,i dont expect you to put on your street name and number for obvious security reasons but your nearest town and country would be nice in fact it should have made compulsory for this reason alone then every one could see and a poll could be established,
regards
joe

forgot to point out it would also be nice if you could put your occupation on as well, i get allwalks of life visiting my workshop ,doctors solicitors retired , young school boys and girls,even ladies from equestrian centres,this makes it easy to explain a particular aspect of repairing some thing because of assuming that you are skilled and just need reminding when you are a pen pusher (no disrespect to the pen pusher),so again go back into your profile and just enlighten all your db enthusiasts just 'who we are talking to'

well the response was great but you need to register in the 'memberslist' because your post in the general forum will only last for a short period then it will be removed.

OK, Joe

I did fill in the location bit. I think it's a good idea.

I live and work full time in downtown Toronto as a sales manager for a software company. I farmed as a kid in Scotland on a farm outside Kilbarchan in Renfrewshire (now called Stathclyde...). Dairy, MF 135 and MF35's. Been in Canada since 1980.

I have a "hobby" farm of 90 acres outside Peterborough, Ontario. Grass fed Hereford beef, in partnership with a real farmer. I have a 990 Selectamatic, owned it for about 5 or 6 years.

I've always enjoyed tinkering with mechanical stuff and do much of my own maintenance (in the summer) on a 92 VW Jetta diesel as well as the 990. Just added a 1983 Mercedes 300sd diesel to the fleet as well....

WE HAVE ALMOST 250 MEMBERS SIGNED UP TO THIS FORUM HOW DISAPPOINTING TO SEE THAT MOST MEMBERS DON'T GIVE A LITTLE PROFILE ON THEMSELVES, WHERE YOU LIVE, OCCUPATION,OTHER INTEREST, ETC,
FOR SECURITY REASONS YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PUT ALL YOUR ADDRESS DOWN JUST THE NEAREST TOWN -COUNTRY WOULD BE A GREAT HELP WHEN ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS!

I am a transplanted Aussie in Wardensville West Virginia USA. I am the new owner of a 1410 4x4 that has been neglected. Mental Health counsellor, Porcelain refinisher and Sawyer are what pay the bills. The 1410 will be used in the woods and around the mill.
