    <font color=orange>The Ten Commandments of Diesel Maintenance

    1. Thou shalt keep thine engine clean and in
    adjustment that thy life in its company shall be long
    and that the owner shall increase thy job longevity.

    2. Know thine enigne and all its parts and functions,
    else thou shalt be up some tributary without means of

    3. Be not wise in thine own conceit. Remember the
    factory instructions and keep them holy, lest false
    repairs be thine undoing.

    4. Be not loose in thy jaw hinges for no man knoweth
    all about diesels. The truly wise absorbeth much
    knowledge and exceedith little, and he who so doeth
    shall gain repute among his fellows and favors among
    his superiors.

    5. For all things in this life that thou desireth, thou shalt
    also pay plenty, and for the wisdom of experience, no
    less. Advice from the multitudes costeth nothing and
    usually worth as much.

    6. In the books though mayest read what to do and
    when, but only the voice of experience may tell thee
    why and how, else reading of what and when shall but
    plague thee with somke.

    7. God maketh the earth rotate endlessly without
    bearing or oil, but not thy diesel.

    8. Curse not thine engine when it turneth not. Curse
    rather thine own neglect.

    9. Steam engines and gas engines may long turn over
    though sloppy: a diesel not so. With gauges and mikes
    be though ever busy.

    10. The eternal eye watcheth universal operations, but
    thou shalt not rely upon it as to thy diesel. Thine own
    vigilance is the price thou payest for thy job.</font color=orange>
