    Common abbreviations defined

    At one point or another we have all been new to the ski world, and even more so, new to this board. I was going through the threads, reading and trying to figure out what all of the abbreviations mean, which most arent difficult, but some are more challenging than other. Anyway before I get off topic, this is a thread where people can come and look for terms that they may not know, but need to know to do a project or find a fix for their problems.

    *Suggestions as well as questions are all welcomed to update list*


    Terms

    GH = Greenhulk

    RRFPR = Rising Rate Fuel Pressure Regulator

    tdc = top dead center

    rrfpr = rising rate fuel pressure regulator

    egt = exhaust gas temp

    gio = gas in oil

    afr= air fuel ratio

    Amen brother! I too am very new to the sport, and I am reading as much as I possibly can and trying to learn as much as I can, but the abbreviations can make learning a slower process. So a thread just for that would be very helpful.
    All of the information on this site is great and extremely helpful so thank you everyone for contributing it really does help out the beginners like myself!
