68% on the basic

48% on the applications

64% on the ultimate challenge

Not too bad for not wrenching on diesels for over 20 years.

76% on the basic test and that's just recalling my IC Engines class from college - I've never owned a diesel!

On the other tests...we won't go there

For an elderly Professor of Latin and Greek literature, this could be worse:

General : 72%

(Skipped "Applications" after looking at the first few)

Engine Operation: 56%

Turbo stuff: 65%

Trivia I: 80%

Trivia II: 76%

(I don't know much about late model truck and tractor systems.)
