Yeah, we still have a few old style mechanics around but I'm really worried about what will happen when they quit. The 'puter will analyze the problems with the new ones, but it takes a tuned ear, to take care of the older ones.
A buddy of mine, owns a body shop and they do some great restoration work. They had a 38 ford in for body off, restore job. Lost half a day 'til the boss got back and explained positive ground systen to them.
Our local John Deere dealership has 2 mechanics that never saw a set of points til they came to work there. Neither of them could understand the reason for a screwdriver and a matchpack in the glove compartment of an older car.
Just to date myself, my 89 dakota doesn't have automatic brake adjusters on it, took 'em out and my inspection shop can't understand the concept of adjusting them once a month.
