excellent pics, those engine were what we learned on in our tech training..... now I really feel old

How times have changed. They are thinking about upgrading the power house in the future and have been thinking about using C7 or C9 Cat engines for the task.
Im very lucky I have been able to work on such a wide range of equipment.

I spent over 4 years also working all over Africa and I tell you what I learnt a thing or 2 there!! Like the old bush mechanics back home "Australia Outback"
you have to make things work with nothing!!! And just make it work!!!

I love that sort of work. Not like now how the young guys learn how to just change out parts and hope it works!!!!
