    Default Please read before asking for help with your equipment problem - beneficial to all

    Sorry if this has been covered in the past.

    I am amazed at the help so many people are willing to offer others - THANKS. Here comes the BUT....... Many time I have read a post where someone is asking for help to fix or diagnosis a problem with their tractor or other type of equipment, advice is offered, suggestion for the repair, where to get parts -- you get the picture -- then complete radio silence from the OP. Guys and gals, if you find a solution to your equipment problem let us know, it is a help to everyone on the forum

    Can I get an "AMEN"

    Oh, well... it happens.

    I mostly look at the situation as, once the OP has posed a question/situation, the thread isn't really his/hers anymore. Knowledge/opinion is simply offered; for all.

    Still, it is nice and helpful to have feedback on what worked.

    I feel that if a person opened a thread asking for help, they should close out the comments with some kind of response. Common courtesy.

    AND, please properly identify your tractor,
    ie, My Ford 1920 delux Civic II vs 'my 5640'

    Stop and reflect, only a die hard brand loyal guy will know what a '5640' is while in many cases generic diagnosis is all that is needed but clearly defining the brand, model and vintage can bring about specific cures unique to that model.

    Diagnosing a manual transmission is very much different than a hydro-static!
    Not all tractors are diesel, there are also gassers and even a few propane powered ones.

    Amen.

    I do try as best I can to do just that. I'm getting better at it too. But,...I am human and I do get busy and forget sometimes. But this point should be a sticky at the top to remind us to come back and let the fix be known.

    A lesson learned long ago...

    You can't change other people with your expectations.

    And aren't you happy other people can't change you.
    I would prefer to hear back on the outcome, It would make all the "help" threads instructional. But I certainly do not want the questions to go unasked because someone read that YOUR expectation was to include a follow up.
