many thanks greg. This has been very helpful, can I add that I have rebuilt engines ,gearboxes and axles for 2 up to25 ton, I also have a heavy vehicle driving license. look forward to hearing from you.

The more years you have under you're belt the easier it will be .

you only want a diesel mechanics course will be easy .

Take in to note the new vehicle system of diesel are basically the same system as most petrol vehicles .
