Yesterday was a day of continuing education for three of us at work. In order for us to maintain our warranty repair status for Echo handheld products, every year we have to send people to service school. Sometimes these are a refresher course and sometimes I actually learn something new. This course was about carburetors. For me, yesterday was all about stuff I do every day so not much new there. For James who doesn't normally do carb rebuilds, it was a good day to learn some new stuff.
Greg, who happens to be the lead lawn mower tech of the largest Husky dealer in the state, has been through this material as well. Sure there were some model specific details we picked up on and there was the discussion about new models coming out, but for the most part carb work hasn't changed in a long time. Some things that have changed are special coatings, processes and materials used these days to hold up to the effects of ethanol.
All in all it was a well prepared school and attendance was worthwhile.
That's really all I have for you today. It looks like temps may get up to fifty this weekend. Maybe I'll be able to get out for a ride!
