TECH/HANDS-ON SESSIONS with DICKTATOR in San Jose

The world-famous @Dicktator will be holding a Tech Seminar on Saturday, August 25th at noon. Pizza lunch will be provided by @Hollister SSR. The following day (Sunday, August 26th) Dicktator will be holding a Hands-on tech session for repairs, upgrades, etc. at @jhunsfun home in San Jose. Since the location of the seminar is a private office, please contact me (@pokerguy) for the address if you would like to attend either or both sessions. My email is [email protected]

I don't know if we can match that event but your presence in Northern California is an special occasion for all of us for sure. Members of the NorCal group still talk about your visit from about 4 years ago here.

Dick, Lance (Pokerguy) has a couple of Facebook threads running on this also with several folks, who aren’t on the Fanatic site, wanting to attend. Maybe Lance can update this thread.

It was ParkTown Pizza in Milpitas. That's where you were getting the name from. We already have at least 8 coming. I'm sure there will be more confirming as we get closer.

Issue with top...

I'd like to show up with my '03... I've got some sort of Hydraulic fluid leak when I operate the top - pretty sure it may be a 'flapper top' hose - but really could use HELP with the repair. (I'll do what I can, but lack experience and confidence to tackle on my own...)

I've been AWOL from this site for a long time - but was very active early on...

I haven't a clue what tools I may need... I did read about a hose repair sleeve that is available for purchase - will/should I get one to bring to this gathering?

Thanks in advance for the assistance....

Welcome Back Keith. Take a look at Dicktator's One Drive and find the part on top cylinder repair for an idea of what you are in for. It might be useful information ahead of time.

I would be glad to look at your roof at HANDS ON Tech Day, find leak and show you how to remove.

As Dwight said, do some reading: SSR How to Library:
