SVO Emblem Confusion


Mike Ray got me started by doing a favor and looking-up something -- now

Just another example of why so many people are confused about the minor
differences in the SVO model years.

And I found out today that even my Mitchell Collission Estimating Guide has
no distinction between the '84 TRW rack and the 85-on 15:1 rack. If you go
by that, they're all the same. But we know they aren't. So my conclusion is
that if a repair was done on a TRW system, it was entirely possible that it
was updated to the 15:1.
