Is there supposed to be more than just your comment?

Right now it is blank.

Weird. When I hover over your post on the main page it shows a link....

Regardless, the comment applies to me and my 90HP diesel car.

It's a whacky link instead of a link to an image, so it won't work as an image, and it gives invalid as others have already said when you go to the link. Some forums use weird methods for embedded pics.

Link to pic using Photobucket did not work first time.

Yes I know about Photobucket but have a work-around.

See if link works now.
