Tech articles

Discussion in 'General Amphicar Discussion' started by Marty_Peters@gillette.com, Aug 30, 2000.

  1. We have been looking for tech articles and only find a few
    splatterings here and there (thanks Dave). Is there a site or a good
    tech type book that offers articles in some depth such as something
    as
    simple as point gap, plug gap, timing or even all around wrenching
    chat. I can not speak for everyone; but I enjoy working on my cars
    and do appreciate a good tech book. I'm sure there is a mass of info
    out there that may assist others as well. It would be nice to have a
    tech page on Amphicar.com where issues, ideas, problems solved and
    maintenance data could be shared. Any views on this out there.

    I hope your elbow surgery works out well, good luck.
    Thanks for getting back to me on the tech stuff. For some reason when
    I go to Amphicar.net, it hangs up on the main page...any clues.

    I really like to read in depth tech articles on how and why things
    work. Troubleshooting chapters are nice too, as they sometimes
    contain help in directions that are otherwise missed.

    I did read something a week or so ago that Dave the Wave inserted
    about if you see grease below a wheel tunnel, what that means and what
    to do. The legal size Amphicar book goes into just so much detail, if
    you know what I mean. Articles I write are so complete, anyone off
    the street could use them.

    Mostly anything that will make working on the cars more of a joy than
    an all out search.

    Thanks again, I appreciate your input.

    Good Swimming

    Marty

    Marty,

    I have been (albeit slowly lately) working on just that sort of page!
    I have some information listed
    (http://www.amphicar.net/minnow/index1.htm) under "Technical Info."
    If anyone would send me what they have or would like to see I will
    gladly add it. I am going in for elbow surgery on the 15th, when I
    get out I will have some tiome on my hands to work on it. It should
    be interesting doing it all left handed!

    Cap'n John
