Pine Tree’s Culinary Arts, Welding, Automotive and Small Engine students brought home the gold in the Skills USA competition this past weekend. My experience with mice began three weeks ago. During a warm fall here in the Sierra Foothills, my car began stinking. Finally took out the back seat and found dead baby mice. Scrubbed out the ooze and maggots. There you have it, the steps how to airbrush; or how to prepare car paint surface before performing your airbrush.Â Now you can do your thing….be creative and get wild!
Call your parts department sometime and ask about a special order part. Call the service department and ask to speak to the owner. See how long you are on hold. Call the receptionist and ask to speak to the detailers. Call and ask for a shuttle driver to come a pick you up.
You’ll find relays with three, five or even six terminals, though. On three terminal relays, the case itself may serve as the ground connection. When we purchased our first Rolls Royce Silver Wraith in 1972 we just loved the look of the custom pin stripes on this magnificent car. The pinstripes on these luxury cars are still … Read more
I started writing on HubPages because I had a few ideas and tricks of the trade I wanted to share with the world. I figured if I could just get this information in front of people, it just might help someone out. I witness so much dishonesty in the automotive business it made me sick, from mechanics up-selling unnecessary work, to service advisers using scare tactics to pressure customers into buying useless dealership recommended services. It all started when I was searching on the Internet for a solution to a problem I was having, it was on an unfamiliar vehicle that I was working on. The results from the search were horrible, and they keep bringing me down one dead end after another. I knew I could do much better than what I had found, so here I am! I may not be the best writer, but hopefully the content will make up for my lack of writing experience.

To better understand why the automotive industry is in the middle of a perfect storm , first go back and consider the also perfect set of events that led to a robust recovery and a record setting 2016 sales year. A tiny split or damage to a hose could, if left unnoticed result in engine or gearbox damage. Engineered components like wheel bearings, crankshafts etc. where metal surface condition is the first indicator of part failure. All these important visual signs require good natural light.
Spring-lock connectors have been used by Ford Motor Company for many years on fuel and AC lines. A special tool is required to disconnect the lines. The tool must be the right size for the line being disconnected. As the tool slides into the line connection, it spreads the garter spring over the other line. The lines can then be pulled apart. Two -rings seal each connection. To reassemble, lube the -rings and then push the lines together until the garter spring clicks and locks the connection. Double check the lock by trying to pull the lines apart.

The first thing to do is relax. When your car breaks, don’t freak out. Don’t panic. I remember one woman coming into my shop and, as she began talking to me, I could hear trembling in her voice. I looked down at her hands and they were shaking too. She was terrified. I realized then and there how traumatic getting car repairs can be for people, to a degree I’d never imagined possible before. Now I realize not everyone is nervous or intimidated to that extent, but there is still anxiety for many somewhere underneath. So, take a breath and let’s have a look at what part of this unknown stuff is still under your control. Almost every shop uses a large standardized database, such as ‘AllData’, that provides labor times. The reason that shops need a standardized list is because all cars are not created equal. Removing a radiator on one car might be a snap, on another car it might take hours. The database provides a labor time that they feel should be a fair compromise for the customer and the mechanic. A skilled mechanic should usually be able to get the repair done in the amount of … Read more
An information Kiosk is a kiosk (a computer for public access) that provides information about a particular subject or topic. The specs you mentioned along with the laptops look promising.

One of the first things that makes this unit stand apart from many of the handheld and portable sized competitors is the fact that it has multiple input channels, which let you test multiple inputs at the same time and cross compare. Many of the smaller devices only have one. That’s not terrible, but it doesn’t give you as much versatility. The dual channels on this device are are a boon.
Its bandwidth is 25 MHz, and the sample rate is approximately 100 MS/s. If you do a price to bandwidth comparison with other models, you’ll see that that is actually quite a good price tag for what you’re getting. The … Read more
When you first start doing your own automotive maintenance and repair work, you’ll find yourself making some pretty impressive messes. Even as an auto repair veteran, I still find myself making a few good ones. Since spills are a pretty common occurrence with mechanical work, knowing how to clean them up should be part of your knowledge base. Installation was a breeze. However, I nearly gave up when the reservoir started leaking, and nothing was coming out of the sprayers. I popped one of the hoses off the sprayers, engaged them, and got sprayed with water. So, there was pressure, but it stopped at the sprayers. Turns out, they were painted over.
Use Your Eyes: Usually when our customers complain of an alternator issue it just takes a quick look to find a belt missing, hanging off the engine block or so loose it’s flapping around the engine compartment. A quick visual check of the belt for cracking, excessive wear marks and other visual related problems can give you some idea of what may be the problem. Also, the drive belt must have the proper tension to run the alternator correctly; too much tension is just as bad as not … Read more
This lens will provide you with the steps of how to prepare an automotive paint surface for airbrushing or custom paint work. If not properly cleaned and prepped, the airbrush or graphic paint will not adhere, which will result in peeling. This is something that will ruin many hours and effort spent on your artwork so let’s learn how to do it correct so your airbrush work will last a long long time.

This family of operational amplifiers provides input offset voltage correction for very low offset and offset drift, with a gain bandwidth product of 10 MHz. You might ask. Yes, Lenovo models up from Y50 – Y700 had heating problems earlier. This was due to an incompatible graphics driver for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. When users turned off the NVIDIA graphics card and used the in-house Intel HD Graphics, the problem would go away.
Most automotive spills and messes are petroleum related, and that’s because most of the chemicals used in your car (gasoline, motor oil, and various other lubricants) are petroleum based. The other common spill is ethylene gycol, otherwise known as antifreeze.

Our team has developed a compact and powerful mechanical device for motorcycles, motorbikes, scooters, mopeds, mofa, pit bikes, dirt bikes and pocket bikes. The device, based on a belt-driven air compressor (supercharger), improves the performance of most common 50cc four-stroke single-cylinder engines. Having a bolt-on design, the supercharger kit increases an engine’s acceleration capabilities. Thus, a motorbike can reach its maximum speed in half the time required before the supercharger was installed. Long ago I drove a 1987 burgundy Cadillac Coup de Ville. One day as I came into town and entered an area where the speed limit dropped to 30, the car kept going at top speed and I ROARED through town. I’m amazed I didn’t kill someone. I don’t even remember how I got it stopped; I think I turned off the ignition and lost power steering and power brakes; anyway, it was a nightmare. Found out that a mouse made a nest under the hood and chewed through the throttle cables or something.
