What A Dipstick!

There are consequences to leaving a car with a tiny oil leak in a yard for a month, especially if you never knew it had a leak and start the engine...

This is exactly what happened at work, recently, and now we have the mammoth task of repairing an engine that has seized solid. It isn't often that you get the chance to do a complete engine rebuild as most garages would just send the car off to motorcar heaven. So for the next few days I'm as happy as a pig in the proverbial...

My kind of Jigsaw!!

This job has created quite a bit of fuss and some funny comments too. As of yet, the best joke I've heard was a comment by one of the sales staff, who said "what happened here?! Did a Scotsman lose a pound behind the seat?"...

Anyway, I better get back to it and hopefully I wont have any nuts & bolts left over once the jobs finished!

Oh wow that is a few honest days work ahead of you. We deal with puzzles every day with computers we work on and there are some mechanical bots but nothing like that!

That Scotsman joke is pretty damn funny.

Don’t skin too many knuckles reassembling that monstrosity.

I feel like a mechanical robot sometimes as the garage I work at is non-stop!
Our cars are becoming more like computers these days, the diagnostic side is getting crazy and looks like my job is changing by the year. The futuristic cars are coming!

Well robots are supposed to be coming to replace all of us in our jobs. You will always be able to make money repairing those robots!

Thanks for using POCKET! I am running this confirmer code.

Blimey! Fascinating photographs, I'm guessing you know which nut fits on which bolt? I had a bit of a leak on my car, fortunately this didn't happen. Have fun!

Thanks shanibeer. In most cases I have a memory like a fish but with engines it seems to stick.

Lol I have done a few of those jigsaw puzzles over time. Love that comment about the Scotsman. It gets interesting when you buy a secondhand motor that is already stripped down and you just hope every part is there in the boxes.

Oh man rebuilding someone else's job is a nightmare! And when it comes by post... that certainly is fingers crossed time!
