Ecotec Set-up Training

Post by chuckitt@earthlink.net »

Due to my health I will be retiring sometime in the fall of this year. I have 5 jobs to finish. Anyone wanting to come to Airboat Pro to learn all about setting up these engines to run standalone are welcome. The classes are free. Some work on these last 5 projects will be expected in the hands on training. This training will include how to get wiring diagrams for any GM engine and how to highlight the circuits needed to make the engine run standalone. Learning to cut down the wiring harness and splice the wires to the fuse panel, fuel pump control module, throttle pedal, and console. you will also take notes on where to get all the needed parts. Also training on reduction units and complete set-up of Airboats.
Anyone wanting to find out more can stop in this Saturday from 8:00 till 5:00 or Sunday from 8:00 till 12:00 noon.
Employees from Airboat shops are welcome as well as anyone that wants to improve their knowledge of the Ecotec Engines.

Thanks, Chuck

What a generous offer, Chuck.
It has been said that information is power. If this holds true, your offer will empower those who accept learning this new application of modern technology.
I salute your selflessness. :salute:
I will also pray for your health.

I would love to attend. Too far away and too much going on in my life. Ever consider a DVD or booklet? Also, God Bless you on this new struggle in your life. He brought you to it, He will help you through it.

Thanks Afflicted, I was just looking it up myself. Looks like it's 1-1/2 hours from where I am.
