Default Ways to Search the Forum - Take 2

Reading again through Reeb's sticky post at the top of the main page reminded me of a system I put together a few years ago to improve on the poor search engine then in use. So, I decided to leave a 'Search Term' marker on any post I made that covered a subject of general interest. This enabled me to easily find it again at any time. Eventully I had quite a long list of these Search Terms that someone else may find useful too.

Anyway, although I stopped extending it long ago, the list is given below. All you need to type into the forum search box is the upper case and any special characters shown.

BRC = Bonnet Release Cable
#BCF# = Bonnet Cable Fix. The 'Shuttle Shuffle'. Also see BRC Bonnet Release Cable.

#HID# = HID projector lamps, projectors and their types

IPKDM = The IPK Diagnostics Mode. Set up procedure, computer stuff, monitoring engine temp & other related stuff
