I left him my decoder ring and instructions. He’s a great guy, he rebuilds pipe organ turbines. Very very cool work.

It gets a bit better than that. This is a one off engine with ultra rare parts that’s been down for weeks. A company rep and I had to coordinate schedules just to be here at the same time to do the work. The engines from Spain, the company is from Germany and it took SFT to make it happen. There are floor of engineers that can’t get this shit right. SMH

The universe is a funny place. I hit this wall about 2:30 pm Friday. Ron calls me around 3 pm about an unrelated matter. By 12:30 the following day I have a viable part in my hand.

The guy from the engine company is ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY by all this. As he should be.

It’s tough. In the last year I did about 600 hours OT and mix travel in with that. Medicine Hat AB, Cayey Puerto Rico and Puyallup Washington are just a few of my stops in the last 12 months. The little time I do get I try to spend torturing my family with my presence
The guy that said money can't buy happiness never bought a tank of fuel for a turbo diesel.............
