Chances are, if you found this as a reader of my blog, you don’t care about this, at least the details.
Here’s some perspective.
YouTube has revolutionized education. It is now the go-to for all walks of life for anyone that needs to do anything, almost.
I use YouTube all the time. In fact, for this job, I learned most of what I needed to do by watching YouTube.
This video addresses the gaps in that education. It’s my attempt to chip in so that the next guy can potentially cut hours off his troubleshooting and repairing.
I have a personal mission to help make people’s lives better by offering words of encouragement towards self-reliance.
A few projects lately have had me on the verge of calling in the ‘professional’. I recently fixed a fuel leak on a marine diesel, but I was close to losing confidence. With this fuel pump I had actually given up, I was going to drive it until it happened again hoping to have a better clue as to why, and then tow it to the shop. A good friend and neighbor hooked me up with a little advice and words of encouragement that probably saved me HUNDREDS of dollars, maybe a $G.
Money is a good reason to work toward self-reliance. I have legitimately saved hundreds, if not, thousands of dollars working on my own cars.
But what’s better…
Man, it feels good to persevere. To be on the cusp of giving up, and powering through.
That first bolt is the hardest. Just suck it up, do your homework, and dive in after it.
