    Part 2

    Overall, it's been a good ride... travel all over the world, good money (most of the time), memorable projects, great co-workers. If I have a regret, it's wondering if I would have enjoyed it more if I had used my mechanical training in some part of the automotive field, my real passion. I actually was involved as a project engineer in the design of the first semi-commercial facility to produce the earliest automotive size catalytic converters, starting with the laboratory data, and scaling it up to commercial production methods. Somehow, "hexachloroplatinic acid" still sticks in my mind.

    In any case, I always tried to do the best I possibly could, work I could be proud of. It always led to success and a high level of personal satisfaction.

    I can tell you have your heart in it. Keep the passion. Best of luck in whatever direction your education takes you.

    If your heart is in it, that's all that matters. For me it was a roller coaster ride. Graduated in the top 5% of my class, went with Exxon, lots of additional training from them, international travel, etc. but somehow the glow wore off and I left, working for the large international engineering contractors.

    Engineering/construction field was volatile.... employment opportunities rose and fell with the economy. Relocated to Houston, when my employer closed their NJ office. Spent 10 years there - manager of program controls; manager of design engineering (300 person department including architectural, electrical, civil, structural, piping design and layout, vessel and exchanger mechanical).

    Great job, but crossed the wrong person, someone politically motivated to become president of the company (he eventually did), and I think he saw me as a competitor, and made my job miserable.

    Relocated to California, the back to NJ through several jobs.

    End of part 1.

    I'm still young and though I was a good soldier...I had a retired colonel tell me he could tell I was an intelligent smart-ass. I didn't understand as I was very respectful however I get it. I'm sure you're the same way. Just the way it is, we grow up some-time yet again...I was trying to impress you. I really respect what you have done and where you are in life. Aiming to be there myself soon enough. Underdog story I suppose yet I'm doing the best I can. It's tough. Father became a professor at 20, grew up poor and made it. My turn and the pressure is on. The journey is never easy yet I can only imagine what you went through to make it. Take care Sir.

    The spot to the left of the text is the "Avatar". Click on "UserCP" and "Edit Avatar" is one of the options in the dropdown. You can either insert a link (URL) to a pic on another website, or upload the image from your PC. Note that the avatar photo size is limited to either 100 x 100 pixels, or 7.0 KB, whichever is smaller. If your photo exceeds those limits, the system won't accept it. You generally have to use a program like Photoshop to crop, resize and compress the file.

    Please post your problem description in the "LT1 Based Engine Tech" forum. That way you will get help from everyone, not just from me. There are repeated notices asking people not to post tech questions in my "Visitor Messages".

    scan and I get the following codes: 11,36,42,77,97 . Can you
    please advise me on how to proceed with my engine symptoms. Forgot to mention that the egr valve is blocked off. Don't know if that is a factor. Thanks, Frank

    Morning Fred, things are bleak in my world today. I'm banging my head on the wall trying to figure out what to do next.
    Short story is misfire counts led me to plugs & wires, but no help, same condition, same codes.
    Am I back to Opti?
    Or do I need to consider mechanicals/loss of compression on #5?
    It is virtually dead, only firing under ideal occasional cicumstances

    What "new posts" area? What forum did you post it on. The "Last Post" column on the right side of the forum listing only shows the last post on that forum. Yours was in the column this morning, next to the "General 67-02 F-Body Tech" forum. You posted at 6:45am. Is that the post you are asking about?
