Brandon: No offense sport but take some English courses unless whatever device you are using is so impossible to use you'll never communicate with employers or customers with your current English so would be lost. If a second language to you still work on it hard or that alone will be your "glass ceiling" if you intend to work in the trade someday.

Just 17 and good for you for your aspirations. Before just taking engines apart for plain amusement learn how they are designed to operate from basic principles on up to the specifics for each engine or you'll just end up with a lot of hopeless engines too screwed up to be worth using again if intended to do that.

Listen to the teachers and ask questions that are not clear to you while in school,

Tom, Still very capable of plenty of errors in spelling alone now that a computer says it's fine!

Well it sounds like you know what you want to do Brandon.........Wish I still had 1/2 the energy you seem to have....

You are definitely in the right area to be getting into Benz's......Personally Euro was never my 1st choice but the money is way better there than Asian/Domestic....

Sounds like you're doing alright..............Good luck to you.............

Are you at any shops we might have heard of?
