Great to have you on board JT! I am sure with the background you have, you will help a lot of people!
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 said: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.. ) 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!!!
