With all these postings here is a social group really necessary?

IMHO, the social groups splinter and fragment the information flow about our cars.

I may not have a particular car that a Social Group has been established for, but I still want to know what is being said. When somebody takes a discussion into a splinter group, in order to follow what's being said I have to visit that forum. And for Model A topics, there are 10 or 12 or more different forums!!!

The same problem on a worse scale than the old FordBarn vs. Ahooga when somebody would post one place and not the other. But then it was just two places, now it's a dozen and growing!

If Ryan would give us some way of combining a collection of these forums into a single "virtual" forum, I would be pleased. (I have asked for that, BTW.)

Problem is, there is nowhere for the B motor cars to fit in on here.
You have early V8, but no B stuff.
Plus I'm sure there will be discusions about hopping up a B and restorers don't want to hear and see that.So a scocial group is a way to solve this problem.

You can decide for yourself whether it is a benefit or a liability, but you don't have the 'right' to decide for others by campaigning against it. It is no skin off your nose.

Are you against Postal Truck groups, Station Wagon groups, etc for the same reasons?



Mike,
Yes, for the reason above. If it is not necessary to you, then ignore it.
It is pretty easy to follow the "splinter" or "social" groups. Go to your profile page and click on the place where it says "Join social groups". You will be allowed to pick the groups you want to join, and then follow what is going on.

Scott,
Keep V-8ing and 4-banging!

Does the fact that Model A-related information is scattered across a dozen or more forums mean anything BUT fragmented?

To expand on your analogy: can the fish swim in more than one school at a time? Probably not.

....
As for "campaigning against" their use, I suspect that is my right. If nobody agrees, I lose. If others do, perhaps changes could and should be made. In fact I offered a solution that would suit me just fine and would affect no-one else. But getting it implemented is probably close to zero.

IMHO, the fragmenting of information is the one serious deficiency of the new FordBarn format compared to the old.

Cool My grandfather had a ride-on Toro in the 70s. I did not realize the company went back that far. Thanks for the pics. With all those B-powered items, don't see why you couldn't join. It's up to Vince though I guess.

I'm delighted to find this exclusively model B site but slightly confused about where to post this need (already did so somewhere else not too far away).

I do need both of the B-6042 special bolts that fasten the radius rod bracket to the flywheel housing. Any ideas?

Thanks for any thoughts.

I used countersunk allen head bolts until I found the correct ones. Where are you located? Please post or ad to your profile.

This thread was started in 2010. I just went to the groups pages and did not find a B group. I may have been removed.
