    Here's what I wrote in the 308 etc. forum. It's just as true for the Brotherhood. "348 Cab" for example...

    Let's say you are looking for information about a repair task for your Mondial t. If you use the provided search function you will be miserably disappointed. You enter the following: Mondial t flywheel noise. How it works, who knows, but you will be very lucky to find anything useful.

    Instead, go to Google. Click the link for "Advanced Search". At the bottom of the search form there is a field called: "Search within a site or domain:" Put in there. Then use the upper fields as common sense would dictate to find the links to posts that you are looking for.

    One tip: to find posts for the Mondial t, enter that within quotes as one of your search terms: "Mondial t". If you try that trick in the chat's search, it gives no results - "Search term not found". D'ohhh!

    Google, however finds 303 posts.

    I think that using Google's search you are doing Rob a big favor, as from what I hear, the site provided searches add a lot to his monthly hosting bill. True?

    Thank you for that, I've occasionally wondered if there was a better way to perform searches when some 'obvious' ones (can't remember what they are now) turned up no results for me. :)

    All the best,

    You can also add to the end of your normal Google search to just search here. It does the same thing as mentioned above.
