I do small engine maintenance, so, not a real mechanic....
Gasoline engines and fabrication here
I play Forza
Also not a real mechanic. YouTube taught and trained me
Little knowledge on diesel/ big shit. Tractors included. More knowledge on vehicle maintenance basic mechanic shit on cars.
I have minimal diesel knowledge enough to get by
I’m not cert by any means but I could probably be of some help if we were to do a kill dozer 2.0
I dont have any certs just 10+ years experience
I am an amature mechanic.
If I can take it apart generally I can out it back together.
Want to learn engine building.
Former heavy construction/ag mechanic. Have variously fucked with marine engines. I don't know how to work on your civic.
Quick learner but generally don’t know shit. Could probably end up figuring shit out
Grew up poor. Hadda learn to work on my own shit. No good for super new stuff, but I got u on about anything else
I think most of us probably started that way.
Wouldn’t trade it for anything though
I want you to join my group on MeWe: https://mewe.com/join/icecastlechopshop
I own a piece of shit YJ, so i am forced to be a mechanic
I got 2 xjs
I had a ZJ
Was like wheeling a lazy boy chair
I’m fixing this ol gal up...
Damn. Y'all making me want a project rig now. Not usually a Ferd fan but that's a sharp looking pickup. Probably way off but I'm gonna guess...'95?
97 actually. Last year of that body style for the -250’s. This one is a short box 5-speed 460 truck too
Yeah I actually zoomed in and looked at the grille and lights after I said that. I used to have a '97 but it was long bed and had the 7.3. Never should have sold that truck. Gotta love those old 460s though. Unkillable 7mpg goodness. You have plans on a build or just a restoration job?
Gonna swap in a Dana 60 front, shackle reversal kits front and rear for ~5-6” of lift, and replace the cancerous sheet metal
Hell yeah. Let'r eat bud.
Whats up new to the discord. Any welders ?
Boilermaker myself industrial mechanic soon to be welder no certs hey
Got some welding certs while I was in highschool. Stick welding, oxy, and some Tig experience. I have a mig, but a monkey can weld with mig.
No certs but I can do some damage
Nice, sadly I own no boog sticks (19 in commiefornia), so my main thing has been thinking up ideas for armored vehicles
Armored vehicle ideas are good, but buy some junker car and some basic tools and fix it up.
If you can learn to fix your own car your in better shape than 80% of society.
Even basic shit.
Yeah that’s very true, I want to get a truck soon thinking about an OBS Chevy and weldin some steel plates into the doors and and inside the fenders surrounding the engine block
Dont do that to your everyday vehicle.
If it's your boog out vehicle yeah that's a good idea. But use a lightweight but strong metal. Because you still want to have semi reasonable gas mileage.
Having a tank vehicle is awesome. Only being able to go 100 miles before needing to fill up makes it pointless though.
Because chances are when were boogin they arent going to give us many opportunities to refuel.
True I was thinking these could be used for strategic moments. we could have light weights and the heavy hittakers.
> If you can learn to fix your own car your in better shape than 80% of society.
Sadly this is so true. Most people cant even check the fucking oil much less change it
If you can change suspension components like control arms and tie rods, and diagnose basic shit with an engine you'll be alright.
The rest comes with time.
I can tell you straight up most of my lightweight shit will either be motorcycles or dirt bikes. Easiest vehicles to lose people on.
My heavy hitters will be something like a Dodge Megacab with AR500 plates welded in the vital areas, 50 BMG turret mounted in the back. (Because the national guard kindly let me use it)
I cant do all that. I can do a good but tho.. if I had to I could learn. I have dropping a couple transmissions and put them back on. chaged parts. Alternator water pump radiator shit like that. But I haven't rebuilt and engine.. I am planning on doing axel swaps on my jeep. But dont have the cash atm. I want to put a small lift kit on...
My heavy weight would be some type of pickup with some horsepower upgrades and superb cooling modifications. With some type of armored enclosure in the bed
Engine cooling that is
I learn what I can. My father was a mechanic, so I should be able to figure it out.
I have done all types of suspension work, alternators, pumps, axles, wheel bearings, shit like that.
Engine shouldn't be shit. Essentially a big pump with tight tolerances.
I'm a big fan of natural work arounds for bugging out and extreme survival. While not auto mechanics it falls under mechanical engineering. Just something cool to do if you guys are into off grid type of living. These do have to be rebuilt every three or so months to keep them real hot. If you do one and have issues getting it started, piss on it or use coffee grounds. The nitrates spark up the breakdown really quickly.
Been working on vehicles for over a decade. From tearing the entire car down to bare metal for Paint, engine tear downs, to simple brake jobs.
Would love to learn welding. Just bought a 3D printer to mess around with though.
How long do you think a car/truck would run with a bullet hole in the radiator?
Til the block got too hot
If there's enough air flow taking heat away from the block you could roll away for a good while, but pushing the engine will cut short the time you have
In reality, it depends on the engine and the climate and what you can do to repair that, if anything. If you're driving something like an old VW, they're air cooled so they don't even have a radiator. If you're driving a modern car, they'll throw some weird code and scream at you til it started siezing up and messing up the actual cylinder
A few months ago I had a pushrod that pole vaulted to the moon by way of the valve cover. I managed to drive it for 10ish miles spraying oil everywhere and losing power but it cost me that engine
If you have a bullet hole in the radiator roll the window down and turn up the heater to max blast.
And if you have the ability to pull over, you can crack an egg in the radiator to let that gum it up til you can get a proper patch
That's the easiest way to get as much heat as you can go, limp it as much as possible until you get to a safe zone. Also. JB weld. I have JB welded quite a couple of radiators for a temporary fix.
Not done jb much myself but I really need to add it to the kit.
Definitely, always a useful tool.
601 area MS boi here, been in auto repair for 6 years now. Happy to help when and where I can
ASE certified tech, 4 years experience professionally but ive been working on cars since I could walk. happy to help where i can in the 412/724 area.
Do I qualify?
Used to get a trailer high enough to slide a standard hitch on it, rather than a drop hitch
Local 316 mechanik. Can get anything running down the road for a period of time.
Since discussion had already started, im thinking my go to heavy vehicle will be a chevy express panel van. If you can find a one ton extended, you can easily upfit to have some sort of armor inside and still fit your light vehicle (dirtbike) and have room for ammunition and arms. Plus you have the bulletproof GM 6.0
And I may be biased, GM tech.
I’m planning on going to my work and grabbing the brand new 10 wheel Mack dump truck I driver everyday
I’m also a heavy equipment operator and have keys to every piece of equipment. So I’ll just grab a trailer and load up a dozer too while I’m at it lol
Could honestly be one hell of an APV
No DOD on those 6.0s thank god
True. The 6.0 doesnt really break, theyll go 500k+ if you let them
Sorry guys this is the only place a I REALLY fit in at the current moment
Shit me too. I know how to shoot handle and clean guns but I don't know them like some of these guys do. Don't know shit about comms or medical. So this is pretty much the only place I even know what's being talked about
I can shoot and handle myself but I dont think i'll be much use mentally in the field. I could figure out comms if I needed to but i havent devoted time to learn yet. I feel medical should be left to those trained in medical
Im definitely more of a hang out and fix whats broken type
Yeah. I'm a decent shot but I am definitely not actually trained in anything
Well not everyone is gonna be out dropping bodies
It’ll still function like a society
I definitely agree with that
You won’t have medics and surgeons going in recon missions
Specialties will be much needed
Everybody has their place
That’s why I’m going through all of these channels
I’m a fucking 20 year old who did sports in HS and plays video games
I don’t know Jack shit
