In a purely Winnie The Pooh moment, why am I not looking to move from my vehicle to something newer and better? 

Think, think, think... 

On a completely unrelated note, how much would it cost for a crank shaft bearing seal replacement on a 4cyl front drive vehicle?

Really not enough info. here to make an educated estimate.................... year, make , model, and transmission type would help get real world estimate

 

Based on a fee of 100.00 per hour labor that most larger repair facilities charge, could be as low as 500.00 and run up to 1500.00 depending upon the criteria mentioned above.

 

Those would be "real world" numbers based on some of the costs I see associated to various repairs in my actual line of work as a Warranty Analyst for a premier Tier 1 driveline supplier to the OEM vehicle manufacturers.

 

If you want to get very specific, shoot me a message and I will do my best to get you something real accurate.

I feel bad for the Mod's that have to sift through all of the signups. 

Step 1: Filter off all applicants that have posted less than X times in the forum in the last three months.

Did some dog training today, everything went well until the afternoon. Then it started the freaking downpour and we all got soaked to the bone. Good training, but definitely needed a change of clothes but didn’t have one

Maybe it's just perception, but it feels to me like there have been a few threads that all of a sudden get a flood of posts from users with single digit posts in their history all in a row. I'm not complaining about that - more engagement & forum members is awesome. It's just an interesting thing I've happened to notice lately and not sure if anyone else has... or maybe it's just me 🤪

I’ve noticed it and it usually around the time a testing opportunity is announced. Some familiar names pop up in threads around those times too

I don't think it is your perception.  Probably a combination of the golf season new posters and people seeing that to be considered for a test you need to post.  Could also be the hard work that is being put in by the mods to generate more forum participation.

Thanks fellas. I also would expect to see that around testing announcements, however this felt to me like it wasn't around something like that. But it very well may be related. Could also perhaps be the MGS Hot Topics emails that go out daily as well.

Definitely a thing, but some of them might get hooked and stick around.  Certainly happened to me way back when...

I was thinking the same thing, hopefully they, like me, are latent forum contributors just trying it out and finding it clicks.  More is better when people post thoughtful pieces with something worthwhile for the string or recent posts.  I think my first posts were a few various things in strings that interested me to get away from that new guy look especially single digit.

Like this Great Heron that flew past me this evening just after putting out the 5th at Glen Oak GC in Amherst, NY.  Well not so much flew as glided effortlessly all the way across the fairway at only inches above the short grass to alight gracefully in the rough by the water.
