I'm not sure how useful or original it is yet. Seems to me that a lot of it are just links to other items on the internet, so it's basically an aggregator of Rochester stuff. I was hoping for more with the locations function but found it quite incomplete with only 5 locations listed under Night Life. Google or Yelp already accomplish this with more information. Going to reserve judgement as it seems to be under continual development, therefore I am offering a neutral 3 stars the moment.
If you are rebuilding a Rochester carb, this is the book for you. There is a TON of amazing info. It would obtain 5 stars, but my specific carb was omitted, leaving me wondering a bit on some of the electric portions of the is book does a amazing job explaining the function of the parts of the carb, which is a amazing tool to diagnose problems.
I successfully rebuilt a Quadrajet from this book. That's not to say I didn't have my moments of frustration because the book seems to be an amalgamation of segments written at various times -- and the content on one section doesn't seem fully aware of the content in another e key is to spend the time to identify your particular carburetor. Down to the latest digit or number. The author will assume you know exactly which carburetor you have.A few small things like the position of the float valve retaining clip or how useful a thin spatula is when reassembling the horn weren't very obvious but go a long method to making your life easier. "Reassemble in the reverse of disassembly" just doesn't chop it as far as I'm concerned.
I'm like a lot of you shade tree restorers out there; not much I won't tackle, but certain things are a bit too scary to try. Rebuilding the carburetor was one of those things.I bought this book, as well as the Haynes Rochester book just to cover my bases. If you wish to test a rebuild, I'd recommend you have both books. There are some minor gaps in this book that Haynes will cover, and vice versa (for example, Haynes recommends [email protected]#$% for throttle body screws, which can work loose and fall in the engine, Roe did not mention this potential issue). The Haynes book does a better job covering other Rochester carbs, including a side by side tutorial for rebuilding the DualJet and QuadraJet, though the side by side instructions can be confusing at times. Roe was better organized in this regard. The pictures in Roe are better, and the high quality paper makes it a small easier to read and handle as you work. If you are doing a QJet rebuild, Roe is your bookI was able to obtain through a QJet rebuild in a very measured, cautious six hours. The carb worked flawlessly the first time, thanks to this book.
A decent book if you're looking for Quadrajet information, but totally worthless if you're looking for info on the 4GC and 2-barrel carbs. When they say "Revised Edition", the mean that they took out all of the 4GC and 2-barrel technical info to save by printing a Quadrajet-only book with fewer pages. If you're looking for 2-barrel information, or for info on the vintage 4GC then AVOID THIS EDITION and search one of the old out-of-print editions. The old editions are about Rochester Carburetors. This edition is only about Quadrajets. Ultimately, this book was an interesting historical read about QJs, but in the huge scheme of things it was not all that helpful, even for my QJ rebuild. I found much more helpful info on the web.
Chris Botti is my go to horn player, never disappoints! BUT there just must be a better method to music. I have yet to a without repeated failures from the illiterate Amazon melody app. I guess II will spend my $$$$ at iTunes. I am on a fibre optic ISP but Amazon never fails to fail. POS
This cd is as amazing as Italia (also by Chris Botti)--which to me--is as amazing as it gets! It's warm and sexy, it's the essence of the night life, and no talent better to entertain you, than the one and only--Chris Botti--featuring Paula Cole, Billy Childs, Dominic Miller, and Sting. It's so very mellow, very cool. It ends with: Time To Say Goodbye, which is done so elegantly and sincerely--it is very touching. A true class act!
The first time we saw Chris in concert, I swear I had an out-of-body experience during one song. The man is awesome! He makes his trumpet "sing" to you. He doesn't blast you like he's trying to take down the walls of Jericho. Test some of this on your method home from a stressful day's work ... you'll be buying more too.
I can only think that a 4 year old was given the job to convert this book to an electronic file. Trying to read it is almost impossible; pages are out of order, broken into pieces, sometimes obviously missing, and lots of duplicate pages. A waste of my money.
Need anything more be said? Botti's style is exactly what I was looking for; moody, romantic, passionate, yet never overly sentimental. He is a cool cat through and through, and this CD makes me think of amazing things like rainy days, and European summer nights, and painting... I love LOVE the French songs on here. It is a CD I can play all the method through, enjoying all of the songs and not feeling like I need to skip any of them. I am a writer and I can this melody as I write. It's one of those CD's like Miles Davis' Blue that makes me wish to create... It is not cheesy jazz, but true jazz... yet its smooth in that it is sensual.
In his later years, having long eschewed his cool-jazz past, Miles Davis was asked why he never played ballads anymore. He was reported to have answered that if he did, he was afraid he'd never stop. Miles' ballad style--a style and sound that created him famous--surprisingly had few disciples among his successors. Amazing for us, then, that Chris Botti finally and ably ressurects the Davis sound with this fine, mood-rich album. While one can argue with the occasional indulgence of the string accompaniment, Botti beautifully weds the phrasing of Kind of Blue with the lushness and romanticism of Clifford Brown with Strings. The album is top massive with ballads, which is a amazing thing; Botti's up-tempo work needs a firm nudge toward the straight ahead. But all in all, this is a very listenable and compelling album. The title song is signature.
I am unable to the melody from the CD to my MacBook. Neither will it allow me play. It is worthless to me. I'm sure the melody would be fabulous if I could listen to it. I bought some other music, but had no problems. I tried to return it but Amazon said that it was non returnable. This is very disappointing.
Older ver was great......when the most latest android device e out it wouldn't open......so I uninstalled the app., too poor too.....it main r everything Minnesota sports....still read occasionally but have to search it in its web page.....what happened?
Crashes every time I test to enter the listening reward contests. Like the station but it isn't fair if every who qualifies can't enter the contests. Shouldn't even place an application out there that performs this poorly. Reflects poorly on the station & Hubbard broadcasting.
Old ver of the application was great. This ver is just 4 buttons that link to their poorly formatted mobile website. You can no longer view the on demand shows chronologically. You have to pick a specific present and THEN the date it aired. I liked to pick a date I know I missed or a date with a lot of news and then listen to all of the days shows, this fresh format makes that impossible.
No longer works When I had 1st downloaded this application it worked well. Then 3 weeks ago it stopped working. You on the begin arrow and the loading wheel just spins but the podcast fails to load. If this application was a finished product then someone had better reconsider the business plan.
Wow. I have never seen an application go so far backwards... The old application would at least allow you see the news stories at a glance. Streaming is terrible, the news stories have been the same for 3 days, navigation is atrocious, and it takes FOREVER to load anything. This isn't even an application it's just a button you push to be brought to a crappy website. All of the shows on 1500 are perfect from 9-6, this is a sad representation of that. Go back the the method it was. At least that one almost worked.
I had no problem with the down load. This book is an awesome story of a modern day Huck Finn with a small bit of Tom Sawyer thrown in. The author does what most of us want we had the courage to attempt much less accomplish.
Fresh modernize ruined the application Old ver had problems but you could use it. Now if you wish to listen to on-demand it takes you to the website, which doesn't work, and isn't the point of an application to NOT have to go to a website? Also the listen live just buffers endlessly now.
Very not good attempt at an application that could do easily be very nice to have. Live streams and podcasts randomly stop/pause constantly. The podcasts bump you out to a terribly formatted mobile web page that takes each page mins to load. It's impossible to understand how someone at the company could have tested this before release and felt it was worth releasing. Some obvious performance fixes and UI/UX design would go a long way. Until then, don't bother. Please actually invest in being digital vs. a very weak attempt at it.
