considering I spend more time on diagnostic computer than I do digging in the tool box I suppose you are right. I'm not sure why I never have conformed to considering myself a technician. I shuffle papers and talk on a phone more than anything these days. Suppose I should call myself a secretarie. Not to annoy you but just always thought technician was just a bull shit form of shining up a mechanics title. Jeff

I am a lead tech as well for a large private fleet company and I am responsible for a crew of 6 techs. I definitely know what you are implying. I have excellent diagnostic techs that take forever to do a simple clutch job, and I have two old school (techs) that have no interest in learning electronic controls on todays diesels but yet they can swap a clutch happier than hell and in one shift, and I have a couple of well rounded journeymen. So I have learned to work off of each of thier strengths. Being in a union shop usually once we get a tech hired on that's not worth a pinch of crap it takes an act of congress to get rid of him. Up here in seattle finding good techs to replace retiring techs is like finding a needle in a hay stack or winning the lottery. Not to get off the subject but I sure wish they would bring the apprenticeship programs back into thier hey day since it is a good way to get a well rounded technician. Jeff
