Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports the median annual salary for bus and truck mechanics and diesel engine specialists was $48,500 in May 2019. 29 This means half of them made more than that salary and half made less. Keep in mind that salary depends on several factors, including employer, demand and cost of living in the area. To learn about the annual. Mechanical All makes and models.

Clutches don’t get a lot of consideration from owners of passenger vehicles these days. Dual-clutch transmissions have pretty much put an end to the driver using the left foot for anything more than scratching the right one (which is probably flat on the floor while the car’s electronics and proximity cameras control speed and keep it within the lane at a safe distance from other. You can find videos on YouTube that will show you almost any repair, and you just follow those videos. But if you want to be able to diagnose and fix any car, any engine without spending hours Googling then you want a deep understanding of car mechanics. That is what you'll get from this series. AVI produces automotive technician training through instructor led courses, technical training manuals and other media, with a commitment to continually update this training to stay in-step with ever changing automotive technology.

Focus Feature Brakes And Clutches


Clutches don’t get a lot of consideration from owners of passenger vehicles these days.

Dual-clutch transmissions have pretty much put an end to the driver using the left foot for anything more than scratching the right one (which is probably flat on the floor while the car’s electronics and proximity cameras control speed and keep it within the lane at a safe distance from other vehicles and obstacles).

But where the idea of a couple of friction plates being pulled apart by a cable has long gone, clutches are still a vital part of any drive train, especially for commercial vehicles designed to handle big loads. Of course, in passenger vehicles clutches need to provide the smooth driving experience owners demand. The technology and electronics needed to keep a modern clutch performing at its best is staggering, especially as gearboxes become ever more complex. Yet, like so much of a modern car, it’s mostly taken for granted.

Braking systems are the same. Most drivers probably understand the concept of pads squeezing on a disc, but haven’t even the vaguest notion of what’s involved in creating the stopping power – power that’s protecting their lives every time they touch the pedal – or what’s involved in keeping it doing its job safely and efficiently. ABS is considered ‘normal’ and seldom checked for function by owners. Heat dissipation and the concept of calibration are mysteries.

The less the customer knows of how his or her vehicle works, the more imperative it is industry professional stay informed, so ACM has put together a comprehensive look at some of the very latest and best equipment and technologies available

to operate and maintain both clutch and braking systems. It’s a big slice of information that’ll help keep you and your workshop up-to-date with two crucial automotive functions in a constant state of development.

This trainer has been specially designed to teach the principles of alignment in modern passenger cars. It features an original front of end of a vehicle which has been specially modified to facilitate instruction. A number of gauges and tools are included which resemble actual alignment equipment so that the student may make appropriate measurements and actually perform the real alignment process.
Model Number: TBS-FAS-1

Original Front Suspension Steering Units

These are complete original front end steering and suspension units which are intended for skill training exercises involving the maintenance and repair of automobile front end steering and suspension. Units are reconditioned so as all parts are fully operable and have been cleaned and painted. Many types of front end units are available and may be ordered with or without stands.
Model Number: TBS-SSW-1

Front Axle Steering Geometry Trainer

This trainer consists of a scale model front end of a vehicle that incorporates original and simulated parts in order to create the overall mechanism similar in function to an automobile front end steering system. It can be used to clearly demonstrate the theory of alignment, the adjustment movement of the wheel, and the measurement of the adjustment.
Model Number: TBS-FSG-1

Hydraulic Dual Circuit Brake System

This demonstration board shows the design and function of a hydraulic dual circuit brake system. The demonstration board is designed so that the brake system is fully operational. When the brake pedal is depressed, the hydraulic circuit is activated which controls the drum and disc brake. While the brakes are in operation the brake light is illuminated.
Model Number: TBS-HD

Hydraulic Brake Chassis Trainer

This trainer is designed for student skills training in the operation, installation, maintenance and repair of hydraulic brake systems. The unit consists of original automotive components which are mounted into a simulated model auto chassis. The chassis includes an integrated floor stand that is mounted on wheels for mobility. A color schematic chart of the brake system and circuit is mounted onto the trainer for reference.
