Daniel Sinko has been looking for work since he earned his GED three years ago.
Sinko graduated at age 17 from the Michigan Youth Challenge Academy in Battle Creek, where his parents sent him to straighten up in high school. He's even completed culinary school.
Still, the 20-year-old Grass Lake resident relies on temporary and "odds and ends" jobs to make ends meet.
"I can't find a real decent job. For me, it just seems like they aren't out there," he said. "I've straightened my act up and stopped acting stupid. That was years ago. I'm trying to do better for myself. I want a job."
That call was heard by a friend's parent, who was able to put Sinko to work tearing down vehicles and removing parts.
Scott Phelps, 39, of Jackson is saving up money to own an auto-repair shop. In the meantime, Sinko is helping keep Phelps' business alive.
"He's a good worker and just a good man," Phelps said. "It's hard today to find people who know how to work, really work. … But Daniel, he gets it."
Sinko said that in one week he's already pulled out about five radiators and worked on about one car a day. He said by the end of each day, he is covered from head to toe in oil and grease.
"I'm very appreciative of what I have," he said. "I don't get much, but I need this money. I'm still hoping to find myself a full-time job somewhere. Here's hoping."
At a glance …
Name: Daniel Sinko
Residence: Grass Lake
Family: Mother Diane Sinko; stepfather Dave Dowb; stepbrothers Jason Dowb, 26, and Anthony Dowb, 28; and sister Susan Dowb, 14.
Fun fact: Sinko enjoys fishing. While fishing for bass, he once caught a 26-inch northern pike.
Here is a photograph of my 1983 Datsun 200sx. The head gasket had failed and I replaced it myself. Here, I have just put the head and timing chain back on. Each head bolt was torqued with a torque wrench to a certain specification. Each bolt had to be tightened in a circular pattern from the center to avoid head being warped.
BTW: I had to check the head for any warping before I put the new gasket on the car.
Now comes the fun part. Putting tin Intake manifold back on and reattaching brackets, pulleys, radiator hoses, Vacuum hoses, fuel hoses, linkage, ETC.
This to me is the hardest part. Notice the white mark on the timing chain. This was done to mark where to align the chain once it is put back on the car.
A friend of mine is a technician at Blackburn Motor Company. He is the 5 star tech who is qualified to work on the Dodge diesel Ram Trucks. I would see him working from time to time and think, Man! i'm glad I don't have to work on that. How would you remember what part goes where.
As clients and customers we don't see the work and effort that must be done to repair a vehicle.
