I thought I should take a moment a say hello. I am new to the site. I think this is great for mechanics/technicians to be able to get together and share knowledge. It only makes the field stronger.
As for myself I currently on active duty in the US Air Force. I spent the first 13 years working on a variety of equipment mostly with diesel engines. I forced to change carrier fields and have been out the maintenance business for the last five. I will be eligible to retire November 2014 and I am hoping to be able to get back to turning wrenches.
