    I have had luck describing the picture and getting the right hits. Show us the picture and we will suggest search terms.

    If you're on Chrome or Firefox 4+, you can drag an image from your computer into the search box.
    1. Visit images.google.com.
    2. On your computer, click the image you want to search for.
    3. While holding down the mouse, drag the image into the search box.

    Not sure that is possible, however I could be wrong?

    It would be the first time today if I was.


    I'd try to get creative with search terms....

    OK, open google. Upper right hand of the screen select 'Images' (next to Gmail)
    On the Google Images screen inside the search bar click the camera icon (search by image). You'll be prompted to either enter a url to the image you want to search for or upload the image from your computer.

    It's really very simple guys

    You can't get there from here.
    No, you can do that pitw or just copy / paste the url to the image in there. Either way.

    What is it you're trying to do? Maybe I can help you out.

    In my business (IT) we call that 'critical success criteria' :)

    Good luck with that pitw. I have searched and searched using just images or pictures with no url. Some times images in Google works and sometimes it don't. What I have found out though is if it don't automatically pop up on the "first" search page I redefined my search with a keyword or so. I have given up on many a search because of the repeated images makes frustrating.

    One time I was searching a logo data base and made it all the way though but yet not finding the logo I was looking for and the reason I was there is because this site had company names with the logos which was what I was actually looking for, the company name.

    You might try a different search engine as Google dictates what you can see by what most people look for in the parameters you use.

    Hey, if you find a F2L912 let me know as we have one that threw a rod and punched out the starter when it went through the block. Yeah, every one I called has wished me luck, one guy said I'd have better luck trapping unicorns.

    In Google click on the word Images in the upper right. That takes you to the google image search page

    As yes that be the critter. You know that alibaba did come up a couple times in my search but I never thunk they were manufacturing them over there. And the price of 2k to 3k is a lot better than the 6k I was told I would pay if I found a used one here. Well I guess I'm going to China to hunt unicorns now.

    The thing about this engine is it is way bigger than the two cylinder ones they have available here. And, now they only sale the finest of pollution free engines now with three and four cylinders....And get this all the blocks they made for spares are long gone so no more of them. Priced a connecting rod and it was $700. Yeah you're reading that right.
