I'd still be in it if I hadn't developed a skin condition that limits my ability to be out in the sun. And if the economy didn't suck so bad that I could transition to chillers or ammonia. The...

Summary: Don't buy this piece of garbage.
We tried one of these units because our equipment is scattered across more than a dozen states.
We haven't gotten past the install phase because the...
There are a few of us out there, sweating and freezing with the rest of y'all. I do it because I enjoy the work. I like being out there with no one looking over my shoulder. I make better money...
It depends on what you enjoy. I went back to school at 40 and got seduced by HVAC. I like finding and fixing problems and I enjoy the diversity of knowledge needed to be a decent service tech. ...
I'll be there, just not sure exactly when.

LOL, everything in this area is getting bigger, except Lake Lanier.
Mountains and beach are close. I've been going to norther Alabama a good bit lately...it's beautiful.
One benefit to coming to...

We've tried remote techs before and it didn't work very well.
If you want to look up Suwanee, the zip is 30024.
Holox...you did atmospheric?
Any CO2? Refrigeration?

Lots, but the job is based out of Suwanee, GA.
slobber, slobber, drool drool!
We're currently running '04 Chevy 3500HDs, 11' Knapheide service body. GVWR 11,400. Has the 8.1 gas engine (454 in drag?). Can't get that engine in that truck anymore, only in the 4500 so we're...
We're looking at getting that same truck. Is yours the 3500?
What do you think of Knapheide vs. Reading?
I'd prefer the KUV, but I don't think you can load a 56k vaporizer into one...

We have an opening in my shop.
We maintain bulk liquid CO2 tanks. This includes both refrigeration (small Copeland semi-hermetics) and heating equipment. The controls are pretty...
They probably switched over to the 4.9 with the '92s.
If it was a 5.0 I'd have dug into it already.
If I go for another P71, it'll be #3.
The BMW was a 1997 328i. I've heard that...
I've heard of the ATF trick but never tried it.
Read in the paper today that EVEN with the high price price of gas, the largest expense of owning a car is the depreciation. P71s are a great way...
I usually pick up a Bargain Trader when I'm in GSO visiting my folks. The last vehicle I bought from it was a 1957 Willys.
I live in Atlanta. My territory goes from DC down and GA east. We're...
The most I'll do to a 4.6 is replace the intake manifold.
If it's beyond that, it's a boat anchor. Particularly when I can get the same car again for about $3500. Now my 4.9 (300...
Thanks for mentioning that. My mechanic also suggested it, so it's already had the first dose.
I've never carried a bunch of extra coolant...I did drive a car that needed 2 qts of oil...
This is after replacing the leaky radiator & replacing the thermostat.
It overheated because of the leaky radiator (someone else was driving it).
I've been down the the oil-in-the-coolant road in...
Just when we thought the light at the end of the tunnel WASN'T the train...after losing a house to foreclosure & scrimping like crazy despite making decent money...
Got word that my old faithful...

I have a job near Morehead City next week. I'm excited because the worksite closes at 3:15 pm every day...hurt my feelings!!!
Looking forward to spending some time along the...
LOL...there was a discussion of peeing all over the toilet in our shared bathroom. I commented that whoever was doing it must have one so short they can't hit anything with it, like my snubby .38,...
We're installing a 50 ton LCO2 tank. Coordinating with the prior supplier, who is removing their old tank. I went to Richmond (where the tank is stored) two weeks to prefab some of the...
I've spent a good bit of time in that area in the last year, especially around Harrisonburg.
I've got a big install near H-burg one weekend in April & then my usual jaunt up into WV for PMs....
