Re: Advice or guidance please

Hey Newbie.. Sorry to join the discussion so late. I entered the field using a 1 year diesel mechanics course at a local college. I paid my own way for my MED's and have been working "self-study" the rest of the way. In order to get your 4ths, you have to have a number of skill requirement...

Re: Engine information

Oh, yeah. One more thing. MAK was recently bought out by Caterpillar.

We are doing a 12000 on one of our main engines this week (16 cyl model). I will pass on any interesting info.

Re: The nuts and bolts

Thanks Barbie...can I call you that? My experience has taught me that squishy feeling just before the cap comes off, followed by that squishy feeling in my stomach - the manual does not always give a guideline.

Re: Fault Finding 2

Great story BP, I'm thinking that maybe the purifier was working just fine despite its operational environment?

Re: pv fiassco

What model of make/model of engine are we talking about here?
