It happen I'm trying to diagnose and remedy but how do you handle it.
Practice....I did a lot of car repair a High Plains Drifter also grew up on Car Talk. Then when, I went back to school- I took physics (That really helped)....I still break things and: misdiagnose but usually can nail it down...Remember these engines are using 50's tech at best....Flat tops, Pushrods (I'd love to see a 4 valve VVT like an Escalade), single or double barrel carburetors.
I check three things:
I always take tools 1/2 ratchet, a cordless impact and lightweight floor jack some wing nuts help too.
I have a small parts inventory on the truck, belts pulleys etc. Most of the time I can fix a problem on the job. I also have backups for everything.
How do I handle break downs?
I'm having issues right now with my edger and trimmer. Wanted to spike the edger off the sidewalk today then run it over with the truck, but remembered there might be people watching.
Well today it had fuel air and spark.
BUT NOT STARTING!
I don't handle stuff like that well.
I trouble shot it
Then about an hour or so it started.
Only thing I really did was pull fuel filter to empty and see if pump was pulling it was. Just wanted to slow me down I guess.
Just thought this was a good thread idea and well I wasn't working.
Have enough equipment in the trailer that a single breakdown has little impact on production. If it breaks before lunch, we might run you out a new one. If it's after lunch, you finish with what you have. Warranty everything else
I fix it, the guys use one of the other machines.
I keep a small tool set and a hand full of spare parts. Depending on what's broke and where I'm at I'll head back to the shop and grab a back up.
The best kind!
I call our mechanic or boss, tell them whats wrong, and then figure out if its something that can be repaired in the field, or has to go back to the shop.
