You have to thank Al Gore for inventing the internet. Neighbor went to Honda dealer for a part for a 4 wheeler he bought from a person that called it a salvage ATV, no title, mistake. It was cobbled together with parts form other ATV's.

Neighbor needed a starter cover gasket. He didn't know the year or engine model. Dealer said parts no longer available.

Last night I googled pics for Honda 4 trax and quickly determined it was made in 1986-87 TRX 250. Then I did an advanced search on ebay for starter cover gasket and there it was. Under $9 shipping and handling. I should get it by Monday.

You got to thank Al for inventing the internet. I found a gasket Honda no longer has. It Saved me from making a gasket too. Neighbor is 78 and afraid of touching a computer.

I'm surprised how many people are like my neighbor, living in the good old days.

I watched his statement in real time during that debate- yeah, he did make a statement that he took part in inventing the internet. He also invented a way to become a multi-millionaire through scare tactics.

Paul -- Yes, that's when that idiot Eckhard Pfeiffer got into being CEO and ran the company (AND the stocks!) into the ground! Eh, better not go further. Might risk losing control here and getting banned! 8)
I worked there for a while in Test Engineering, but got caught in the first big layoffs - 1500+ people.

And just because he, and a bunch of other elected officials approve funding for darpa,, he invented everything good, and they invented everything bad.

To be fair to Al the Stiff, he didn't actually make that claim.

Another thing Al never invented was a bogus excuse to invade another country. He never got a chance to do that, but somebody else did.

At job I had several years ago, there was an elderly man there, semiretired, had worked as the maintenance man there since he was 14, with 4 years off in the military.

To say he was living in the "good old days" was an understatement!

He was about the most cantankerous, belligerent, hateful man I have ever met! Spending money on any improvement was a waste. The biggest argument we had was when I scored a pallet of used 4' fluorescent fixtures to replace some of his "hanging by the wire" 150 watt lights!

But when he discovered the www, he was in dream land! He jumped right on, actually became quite good at computer technology, at least as it was in the early days.

This was a very good thing for me, because when he was surfing the net, he wasn't following me around explaining why wiring didn't need to be in conduit, safety guards were left off because they are in the way, and all forklifts leave a trail of oil behind them! LOL

Steve,
An old saying, If one person calls you a horse's butt that's OK.
If everyone calls you a horse's butt, better buy a saddle.

Did the old man you are talking about have a saddle?

As for the other stuff, I don't listen to Big Al and I don't watch South Park. Figured Geo was funning, but just wanting to make sure. :D

Gateway Tech? Interesting history, they managed to reverse engineer a PC without breaking the copyrights, and always made new and better stuff, not cheap clones.

Until HP bought them, and turned the logo into the cheap low budget line.

Didn't even realize they stopped using the name in 2013.

Honda has online parts catalogs for every machine it has ever made. Actually they still can supply many parts for old machines at fair prices. If not you can google the parts number and find someone that still has it to sell.

I'm 82, and I began using computers in 1990 when my job at the time required me to enter Ford warranty claims into the Ford Motor Company's main system. Every employment situation I've had since has required me to use a computer.

With Ford's system back then, if you didn't enter data for 30 seconds everything was rejected and you had to start over. I'd go in after hours, lock the door behind me, and take the phone off the hook, 'cause sure as heck when you started doing warranty claims that's when someone would insist on talking to you, either in person or on the phone.

That was a claim Al made at one point- much hooting and laughter at the time, and he's been saddled with it ever since. I think the actual inventor of it (for the military, originally) just died in the last couple of weeks. Don't remember his name.
