Newbie Oldie but Goodie
I'm Jack New here,
My first car was a Buick Special v8 1954 which I got my junior year in high school back in 1964. Yeah I'm 66 now but in those days we tore our engines apart by age 18 and rebuilt our Holly 4-barrels with cuss words that'* the way it was but fun. My Vacuum tube radio would kill my battery after 30 minutes of use (if parked with girl friend) which I replaced with "New" transistorized one a year later when they came out. That was a life saver.
Now, much more tech involved and I've kept up well for most stuff have some test equipment acquired for cars and electronics over the years but its been proven more knowledge can be found in decent structured groups like this and much can be "learned" and shared to finding answers for many problems current and in the future. I spent 20 years in the Military (Marine Corp Aviation) and another 15 years after that with the feds in various duties mostly with Computers and Communications, writing debugging software and building fixing things with the DIA.
I feel 26 in my "Mine" but my body tells me otherwise when trying to act on such things that are not of my true age. Sometimes it lets me do it, most times it makes me pay for such actions with pain if not careful. So that'* my brief condensed story and hope to share yours and my knowledge from our experiences for its gotten to be a very "COMPLICATED" technical world with all vehicles, no doubt, now. Thanks for having me here.
