Default Smoke


Iíve been fascinated by electricity all my life. My understanding is that smoke is transferred in the wires between different devices. Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work, we know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical system, it stops working. The function of the wire harness is to carry the smoke from one device to another; when the wire harness "springs a leak", it lets all the smoke out of the system. Once this happens, nothing works afterwards. For example, starter motors were frowned upon in older automobiles for many years, largely because they consume large quantities of smoke, requiring very large wires. I hope someone will come up with a convenient method to bring the smoke back into the wires and the problem would be solved.

Merry Christmas

Originally, transistors were conceived as an electronic device to be inserted into an electrical circuit in order to protect a fuse....

Pretty much a complete waste of time posting items like this and not really funny. Stick with early FORD V8 items. MERRY CHRISTMAS to all. Regards, Kevin.

I didn't know that transistors were conceived as what would become breakers. I learned something from Petehoovie, Thanks.

I think you use this kind of like an IV but you have to patch the leak first.

So it's true! Are there instructions on the back of the bottle? I've never used that stuff before.

Merry Christmas, All!

Transistors to my knowledge are used to amplify or "switch" energy to another component. The job as a condenser/capacitor is to store energy.


Best to my knowledge anyway. I am also not a comedy writer, like a lot of people here.

worked for a major truck manufacturer here in aus and the head product trainer taught the smoke theory so it must be true [guess what the training school was located in Melbourne ]
