Would've been allot cheaper with yearly inspections.
On that note of yearly inspections, this is major problem I come across. Look at it this way, I can take my truck to a mechanic for the yearly inspection and he said I checked everything and its all looking good..not problems. Even though it makes funny sounds and sputters....the mechanic said its fine and thats the way it should run. So I drive away backfiring smoke filling up the street. I accept the fack that this is the way it should run...my buddy the mechanic said so. This same scenario has been happening with people coal stoker for the last 30 years. They accept what they are told and never get a second opinion. I call it a LOST TRADE, working on coal stokers. Probably can be said for a lot of trades today. There are more people on this web site that know more about coal stoker than the so call professional driving around the coal region. Their egos are to big to admit the don't know coal(the so call professionals). I tell every person who burns coal, Ask your service person one question......do you burn coal in you home. If he doesn't.... get a second opinion from someone who does burn coal
