I know what you mean. I have learned recently how valuable this forum and its members are. I was given a scooter in boxes. Broke a valve and impaled in the piston. I haven't found a forum with a lot of information about it so it has been trial and error trying to get it back together, glad it has a "generic" engine, I was able to get it done, now I need to put the rest together. I feel so alone without a forum.I learned a lot when working on my 175, in many cases learning what not to do.
