    A good idea especially for some of us not in the US as we all have different names for machinery and you guys definately have me scratching the noggin a bit trying to work out what you are talking about.

    My favourite OT acronym is PFM

    In use: Q: How does ?????? work? A: "By PFM" (When I have no idea)

    It stands for Pure F!@#ing Magic

    No one has talked about pulling the "TA" lever (torque amplifier) on an Interantional (MTA, 66, 86,...series ?). I never drove the red ones much, but those guys would always talk about like it was some magic rocket booster (well it sort of is).
