For those of you who haven't noticed, I'm a big time motor head and Titanaholic!!! I've always loved pretty much anything that is powered by an engine.

I started working on cars at the age of 10, moved over to the marine industry for several years, and then went back to work on cars until I graduated high school.

I've had extensive on-the-job training working on diesels and heavy equipment. And of course my current job of working on commercial airliners for the last 17 years.

My technical background includes 2 years of technical automotive training of which I was certified as an ASE mechanic, several years later I tested and became a master tech. My specialties are trouble shooting electrical problems (I've never met a wiring diagram I didn't like.. :D) along with engines and drivelines.

I also have 2 years of aircraft technical school where I received my airframe and powerplant licenses. These 2 licenses have allowed me to have a great job and indulge my desires for fast cars and trucks.

Even though my occupation involves working on aircraft my love has always been fixing automobiles. There's nothing like fixing a problem without having to go to the dealer, whether it's under warranty or not, (that's the trouble shooter in me). And there's nothing like making it more powerful!!

That's just a little background on myself in case you might be wondering "who is that bonehead?".. :lol:

If you have a tech tip, by all means please post it and let us all in on it. To help others will always make you feel good!! If your a little shy, or perhaps not comfortable posting on the internet, just pm it to me and I'll be happy to post it for you. And of course I'll make sure everyone knows who wrote it so you can bask in the nice feeling of helping others. When someone pm's you thanking you for a great tip, it's all worth it..

So in closing lets get this section up and running with great tips and ideas. oh yeah, I'm also a big time horsepower junkie so I'll be at the mods section too. :twisted:

My name is Dale and I'm a Titanaholic!!!

Outstanding man!!! As you can see by my avitar, I worked on helicoters. I was a electrician by trade, but had collateral duties in Airframes and Powerplants... nowhere near the experience you have though, I had only a 5 year stint on my resume. My biggest thing I miss, besides workin on my babies, is flyin in 'em. I loved being aircrew, and there is no rush like firing a .50 Cal out the window and lightin' up a target. Lookin forward to more tips from you, and you have a great website there. Thanks in advance man!

JetTech, You forgot to say how much you loved playing with tinker toys as a child. My dad is a retired Navy Senior Chief Aircraft Mechanic and I'll bet you guys could talk for ages about aircraft engines and frames. He was spending his most recent retirement years doing occasional aircraft maintenance at a small airport near his house but he had to stop doing that because of health reasons. There's a lot of guys with old planes that still call him for tips and tricks. I've learned never to argue with him about how something works. :lol:

Hello, Dale! My name is Mike and I'm not sure...but I hear denial is the first symptom :wink: I've been alot of "holics" in my life, but never a Titan. Then again, I never owned one. Think I'd like to be a counselor in that treatment center.

Hi JetTech, this is the first time I actually read this sticky. I'm sorry I didn't read it sooner. :D You have an impressive backround. I hope I can be a 1/4 as valuable to this site as you. My name is Jim, I'm also a Titanholic. I like to consider myself a master backyard mechanic. (actually I do use my garage though) :D I have no formal training other than not being afraid to jump into any task. My father always tought me anything can be done if you try. :) I have found that he's right again! (damn fathers are always right!) I've been tinkering with cars and trucks, mostly imports, for about 13 years now. My first car was a 79 Toyota corolla that I did alot of body and mechanical work on. Mostly stuff to keep it going though like repair rust, holes in floor boards, needed a new motor so I installed a reman, new clutch, stuff like that. (all at age 16-17) My first real "project" was my 95 200SX. I bought, rebuilt and installed an SR20DET in the car (along with many other mods) and built myself a solid, low 12 second car. :D (I was about 20 then) Needless to say I have never owned a vehicle that I didn't modify. Heck, even my company vehicle has a Gibson exhaust on it! Well thanks for listening. 8)

Hello to JetTech,
Excellent pics site and info on the truck. I am a recent Titan purchaser '05 LE, leather, captains etc. Pretty much loaded. It is the same color 'radiant silver' as yours. I am so impressed with the information readily available for the Tittan.
I read for about 2 months and then went to the Houston Auto show at the end of January. I had not even visited a dealer. I was so impressed with the Titan that I went and made my purchase w/o even driving the truck first. WOW this is the best truck I ahve owned.
Again excellent photo sites and layouts.

Never met a wiring diagram you didn't like???? I have a 1976 Triumph TR6 and it has Lucas wiring. I really don't like Lucas wiring.
