    Morning Gruppys.

    Well had an interview at the wholesaler. Went pretty good. Their big concern is that I will go back into the field when the opportunity arises. I told them that I have tried the field and it has its ups and downs as with everything. I decided that honesty is the best virtue and told him I am than willing to try the counter since they do some load calcs and over the phone troubleshooting. I would be able to see and learn...and more stuff than just Carrier at that. I might like it. Or it might not be for me.

    Then just last night I got a phone call from a fellow member. He is a service manager in Ontario and is a regular on this forum. He works at a rather large company and does refrigeration. So now I've got about 10 forms to get but... hopefully with a little luck.

    I'll be honest the labour situation sucks out here. I found out a couple days ago the top guy in the class only got hired a couple weeks ago. He hasnt worked since grad. I thought my one month was bad...he spent almost 4 on his butt! Theres already words floating around that the guys graduating this year might not be able to find anything out here. I know one class that about 3 years ago only 5 of almost 20 guys managed to find work out here.

    So it looks like Im going to be looking into a van. Maybe ill get a used one off of Kijiji or see how much it is to rent one and head west.

    it is kinda a long story

    i went on and on for weeks thinkin the fans were incorrect

    the MEATBALL company kept saying they were correct

    the chief engineer meatball guy said put it together it is correct and i am the chief meatball do not question me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


    i searched meatball comfortsite for hours and days looking for info and finally found original shop drawings

    the part number was correct tight end and loose end were correct

    so chief meatball was correct

    the only problem is that my fans were drawing out not in and it is not liquid cooled motor but vapor cooled from outside in

    long story short

    the meatball mold was incorrect and they have sent out hundreds of these in the last few decades

    yes motor will run hot and burn up

    it is not going well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i guess it is not cheap to make a new mold???

    and NO you can not just turn them around or switch sides!!

    will not fit!!!!!!!!!!!! or work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    so i am sad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Then I would never be able to shake my title of Sunshine.

    You know whats funny? A girl I only knew of but dont really know called me that the other day. Seeing as how we know some of the same people I asked her who put her up to it and she got confused. People are just naturally calling me that these days.

    Maybe it's just me, but she seems to be a tall drink of water. And a dump truck driver too?

    Can she fly an airplane?
