Learning to overcome technical dificulties. it is a matter of isolateing the problem to one area. Then identify the exact problem.You can build your own testers.After that..Most often the repair is not a big job IF you have $ for parts and suppy your own tools and labor.if you take your auto or tractor to a shop and tell the mechanic what to install because you did the trouble shooting.You have (often) saved him from doing the most difficult job.But he may not settle for your word on the identity of the problem.More often he will be right if he has done this work for ten or fifteen years on a daily basis.If anyone happens to meet my boss,,Please pass this info along.I have to go work on a couple of things he has trouble shooted.

What are you saying? I do not understand your post. Is it related to another post?

If I know the problem, and want them to do the work, I simply go there, and say I want a ??
discombobulator installed please, and when the ask why, My reply is "Cause I can pay to have one installed"
I don't tell them about my diagnosis, nor my reasoning, just that I want this done.
Sounds kind of snotty, but it's my equipment, and my money.
I don't need a reason to buy new tires, I pick them out and have them installed.
I also know that if it don't correct my problem it's my fault!

Reason I posted this? To get any input here on this that might help.A man wanted me to fix his front ( Disk brakes)Old Ford Explorer.He made all the decisions at the coffee shop roundtable by telling his version of the problem.He brought two turned disk ,Two pairs of pads then told me how much it was worth to install them..30 bucks.I looked inside and calculated a claiper piston was sticking causeing the other parts to go bad quickly.He said it was not,Joe the mech at the coffee shop told him what to bring.I said..Well get Joe to do it for 30 and gurantee the job.He said Joe would charge more, i said here are my tools,you do it..he said i dont know how,but someone did as he instructed..the pad on left front went out he tells in the cafe that his mech dont know how to fix brakes.he also included me but i didnt do the job.
