Like anything there are always two sides to every story and in this case I can see both of them.

On one side you have a guy giving advice.
Yes it does get old giving Joe an answer on how to do something and then next week telling Fred how to do the same simple thing that the repair manual clearly shows.
For me limiting my answers helps. There are several on here to take up the slack most times. I allow them to give all the simple answers and only post when I have something to ADD rather than repeating what someone has already said or posting an answer just to be posting.

Then you have the guy asking the question. He may be asking to see what the repair entails to see if he could even do it. He may be asking so he has an idea of what needs to be done so he does not get taken by a shop doing un-needed repairs.
For those that think I should own a manual if you own the tractor I must ask. Do you own a manual for everything you own or may want to do. Your dishwasher; freezer; TV; roofing repair; plumbing; and on and on.
Not likely.

The thing I like about this forum is the variety of posters. While I can make a tractor purr like a kitten; have the manuals to look up hard questions; I may not know anything about a dishwasher.
Joe and I both have mechanical ability. I help Joe today repair his tractor even though he asks a question I just answered yesterday. Joe could have bought a manual and did the repair his self without asking but he chose just to ask the question here.
If I allowed this to get under my skin I would feel real bad when my dishwasher broke and I found out Joe is the best dishwasher repair guy in the country.

So now that I give you something to think about can you please turn off the Caps Lock?
