Search engine

Hi,
What's up with the search engine for this site?
I can't find anything on this site using the search.
I would use this site more if I didn't have to spend hours going through hundreds of posts to try and find the info I'm looking for...
Example, on one of the vintage sites there was a reference to a long running thread about older 5000/6000 El Tigres.
Damned if I can find it...!
I'm a Cat man through and through, but when friends ask me about this site I tell them "don't bother, unless your have all day to sit in front of your computer and probably still not find an answer".

Frustrated,

Later . . . . . . .

Keywords are important to narrow down what thread you're looking for. Also whether it was posted in the General forum or the sled specific forum. EL Tigre is not what i would consider a key word. There's one which started for an 81 EL Tigre 5000 with 590 replies in it.

Relax

Hi,
Don't worry, I only bad mouth the search function.
I DO recommend the site to others as the place to go to ask questions, get help, or stay up to date with all things Arctic/Textron.
Search example: I put in the words "air box removal" hoping to get some hits and narrow it down from there.
But, I get a message that says "air" and "box" are too short and were removed from the search.
So I ended up with 216 hits with the word "removal" in them.
Guess what? I went through half of them and none were about air boxes...
So, what do I need to enter, as far as search words, to find what I'm looking for?

Air box removal is too vague. What are you working on? What year? What engine? Etc.
