Presented here are techniques chronicled over a forty-five year career in heavy duty diesel mechanics. The material is presented to stimulate creativity. The content is designed to help to keep mission critical machines up and running.
Now featuring hundreds of mechanical repair procedures compared, both good and bad, clearly contrasted for courtroom graphics with a database of industry standard repair procedures.
Many presentations based on interviews of Master Mechanics and Welders.
We do mechanical restoration and repair of classic, specialized, and hard-to-find machinery, equipment and vehicles. For fun in our spare time we write books about how it is done.
This includes diesel and gas powered generator sets, antique vehicles, portable sawmills, forklifts, and electrical controls. We do transmissions, gear boxes, engines, and machinery repair. We restore air and hydraulic brakes, and build custom instrument panels.
We maintain a listing of surplus equipment available in the Northwest. We advertise all consignment items.
We do consulting to show you how and where to put your preventive maintenance dollars. This keeps your mission critical machinery going, to protect your bottom line. It begins with our on-site Emergency Up-time Equipment Survey.
Other companies also provide this service. However, we take it a step further. We train facility staff in emergency repair techniques safe and effective for their particular machinery.
We offer on-site Heavy Equipment Mechanic Training, diesel engine mechanics, and more. We do custom skills training for people of all experience levels. To find out more about our courses and content covered follow this link:

Notice that the item above, that addresses “Cracked Marine Transmission Housings” shows the usual correct factory fix on the left, and the alternative method to the right. Notice however, the “OR” between the two panes on the page. This denotes we are providing an alternative to the factory fix. This format is used, especially on equipment restoration, when parts are obsolete or exceedingly expensive.
However, not all of our tips use the “OR”. Some use the “&” or “and” between the panes, as shown below. This tip on “Electrical Diagrams” has the “&” between, meaning it is a complimentary supplement to any manufacturer’s suggestion.
