Don't use big words where diminutive ones will suffice.

Please don't get offended :-)

Best regards,

hmmmmm...... I only see one word unintentionally spelled wrong below. I'm sorta dyslexic and I was tired when I wrote that question. I've done far worse when I was tired and decided not to spell check a question/responses LOL. (shhhhhhhh.... don't tell anyone but I got 4 college degrees and still can't spell worth shiat LOL)

From the majority of the answers I read here there seems to be no confusion about what the question was, but your still right about spell checks.

Tanks (fun spelling done on purpose)

I think this is the way Eric wanted you to write it.

"What is the weight of the OM617.91x and OM617.95x engines?"

I just saw a recent study where they maintained that as long as all the letters were present, the order did not matter. Your brain ( at least some of you) is capable of making sense of the scrambled letters.
I have more trouble making sense of wrong synonoms-( Their, there, they're, two, to, too, etc)--I can figure it out, but it really slows down the comprehension.
