But, I tried to give you the benefit of the doubt when I replied to your earlier post, even though I was hesitant about replying to you at all-and you come back being a fucking douchenozzle yet again. So yeah--no tolerance for you !

I have done well to avoid all the douchebags on the forum, you would do well to avoid me in the future.
I won't tolerate any of your bullshit period, and since two of the mods are clearly biased and won't do jack fucking shit about anything against me- I will go beyond them if I need to.

Now get the fuck out of my thread and stay the fuck out !

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Are you kidding me man? You're the one that throws all the derogitives out to the world and blows things way out of proportion. I don't doubt your skills when it comes to motorcycles, but when it comes to holding a normal conversation or taking things lightly, you don't do so well. I barely post anything now and had a legitement question at first about tinkering, but you go a little far with calling people out for small things and that's what pisses people off. You may be the king of bikes and grammar, but your people skills are lagging a bit behind and thats why the mods are all over you so much. You take things I and some others say waaaaay to seriously.

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'

The only time a leader should use the word "I" is in the sentence "I have to shit"

For example: I have one open ended question I ask people in interviews which I use to gauge skill level. I can tell from the answer exactly how much knowledge the person has.


Ey3
Alright;

I am just going to lead with this example;

I can work on my own cars if I had to, but I don't like to and don't want to and they are not what I have learned about and practice on a daily.

Sure if it needs brakes or fluid changes etc, okay- but major shit, no....

I buy my 4 wheeled vehicles brand new, when they need work (more than what I want to do to them) I trade them in on another new vehicle, often this is about the time I wear out the first set of tires, which quite often is a few years down the road since I rarely drive 4 wheels

Anyways......
So I had this 2002 Ford F350 with a 7.3L diesel, after 80k and 10 years it was losing power and had a much too often no start.
the cam position sensor I had replaced atleast 10 times and the intervals each was lasting was getting shorter and shorter.
Finally one day even after taking the 10 minutes I now could change that sensor in- to a brand new one and it still would not start.... I figured I would recheck codes and see what I came up with

Code reader was telling me bad injectors

I already knew that was likely not the case and that some of these had issues with the wring harness under the valve cover coming loose ( Ford had a TSp about it)...... (Yes I buy the oem service manual for every vehicle I own)- so I struck off to check these and while getting in there noticed that the inlet rubber connector (from the air filter to the turbo) had a tear in it, and that the turbo itself had the vains all chipped up at the end and when spun by hand it would just touch the turbo housing... been sucking in dirt and unfiltered air for god knows how long- the tear was on the bottom and that rubber piece is only 4" long total

Well while bad, that was not the "no start" issue, so I continued..

All the wiring was good and while in that far I checked each injector and injector cup...all good

Anyways- so still no start- so one of my customers who is a ford diesel mechanic (although he knew dick little about the 7.3, really only knew about the 6.0.. but he professed he knew enough about 7.3L's too) came over and said he could figure it out........ well he said the injectors were bad

I already knew they weren't but even after telling him I knew they were good he persisted that those need replacing (to the tune of about 5k) the code says so. His computer program also showed the low oil pressure----he scoffed that due to cranking speed and said he "could hear it was not turning over fast enough" thus the low oil pressure-but it needs injectors installed...fuck that, they were two brand new 1050 CCA batteries that were fully charged, the engine turned over faster than it ever had since new.

I reluctantly had it towed to the Ford dealer I bought it from and had them test it/diagnose it.... same conclusion as the other guy, "you need all new injectors and injector cups-it'll run about 5k-6k."

I towed it back home thinking no fucking way am I spending 5k and I guaranfuckingtee that isn't the issue.
So I studied and read and scoured the service manual and bought my own "auto ingenuity" scan tool with every adaptor to fit every car/truck/suv ever made......walla- high pressure oil pump (which is used to fire the injectors) was bad, only putting out about 1/2 the oil pressure it actually needs to fire the injectors. (so even at cranking speed the oil pressure needs to be high enough to fire the injectors)
Aftermarket high flow high pressure oil pump was a couple hundred bucks, a new inlet snorkel, a new rebuild kit including all new bearings, seals and the 19 vain turbo drive instead of the oe 18 vain and the truck started right up- sure the auto ingenuity tool was several hundred and I did clean up the inside the turbo housing and no doubt the extra clearance from the gouges lost some boost. But the truck was running and running damn well.

I traded it in the next day on a brand new truck..

The moral---there isn't one........but often just because someone claims to know shit, they don't know shit... I knew after 30 seconds of talking to the first guy he didn't know diddly about the 7.3l and the guys at the Ford dealership who should have seen tons of 7.3L diesels (farm country) just cared about the $89 diagnostic fee and what a code reader told them.........and apparently hoped I would just throw 5-6K at them and when that didn't work hand them more until they threw enough money and parts at it to get it running... or maybe they were just going to do the oil pump all along and pocket 5k?

So to vet a perspective technician;

I have no fucking idea would be the best answer I could give you. But that said, knowing as much as you can from several sources about your problem you are experiencing and knowing how to use the correct terminology and explain the problem goes a long way to figuring out if they are just mouth breathers wasting oxygen in the world or if they actually know anything...
Obviously for this to work you would likewise have to be pretty damn knowledgeable on the subject at hand and know more than just what one would read somewhere.
Most of my customers come via word of mouth- that is probably the highest qualification one can get, if people always come back, recommend their friends and generally do all your advertising for you.... You probably are doing it pretty well.

Anyplace can have someone upfront who is a great talker, and can read people well to steal your hard earned dollars. There truly aren't that many techs who can do the work and fully explain it in a manner which most people understand (or they simply don't care to)

See I told you I had no fucking idea how to pick a tech...

I am a tech first and foremost, I am picky as fuck and don't tolerate any bullshit or stupidity. I talk how I talk like it or not, I shoot from the hip and don't beat around the bush about any subject ever.
I am all about the facts, I couldn't give two shits about your feelings- there is no place for feelings to be involved when it comes to working on or talking about a car/truck/motorcycle/house or whatever object needs repair- they are all disposable and replaceable objects, IMO if you have feelings towards it-you are the one who is fucked in the head.
If you need your hand held about how this needs to be done, go cry on someone elses shoulder, mine are too busy fixing shit that very few others care to fix correctly.

That doesn't really answer your question but........

Know as much as you can
Use the proper terminology
And go in prepared with questions and follow up questions
referrals can be hit or miss, but if you can find referrals from people who had the same issue or the same problem fixed, well that is a step closer to being helpful


Maybe some others will chime in on how they decide who they want to fix their shit.
Because actually I would be as interested to know as anyone.

Facts, just the pertinent facts !
I don't need nor want my hand held, my ass slapped or some feel goods from a bunch of people I don't know and don't really care if I know. Very few on here will I ever meet, so very few on here will ever have any affect on my life.

If that offends some of you, grow a pair and some thicker skin and just move along.

I started this section, so I would control it........ Since asking for a section of my own garnered no response...

But I would rather have an actual section to moderate, then I could just delete the idiotic and not have to reply to it at all, or restrict some users from even coming to that section at all..

Question re valve adjustments:

You said dead on spec. Iirc the spec is given as a range. Does that mean exactly in the middle of the range?

I have seen it posted to err towards the loose end of spec range. Any remarks?
