New apprentice

Jeff Linkleter is the new trainee in the engine room.  He is helping me overhaul a Lycoming IO-360 for a mission called Heartland Embrace.  We've already in the past taken the engine apart and had sent everything out for inspection or overhaul and have gotten the pieces back.  Jeff is working on measuring the clearances between the gears and housings.  

Before we began assembling the 360 Andy and Jeff took apart what will be our next engine to repair.  The owner had complaints of low oil pressure and we noticed some metal in the oil filter.  We've sent out all the big and main pieces of this engine to the different shops and in time will have all the pieces back on the shelf again.  This engine will just be a repair not an overhaul.
