Comment: The phrase "as viewed facing the end of the rope" is inaccurate, if you take a look to the page 12 on figures 10A and 10B & 11A and 11B the descriptions are backwards or the pictures are facing upside down. This can be corrected by replacing the previously mentioned phrase for "as viewed facing the direction of the end of the rope on figures 10A, 10B & 11A, 11B" Also is a good remainder that a regular lay ropes can be left lay or right lay depending on which end of the rope is going to be faced, the same happens on lang lay ropes. I hope this is going to be taken in consideration. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Regards. A.M.E. and apprentice, Erik Mier Chavez.

Comment: The previous picture show a level of detail that is not possible with this replacement picture. The old picture had the parts of the wire rope labeled to indicate the pieces that make up a wire rope. Also the core of the wire rope is not visible in this picture, and it was in the old picture. This is important when trying to explain the difference between different options for the core construction. Thanks.

Comment: Figure 33 used to show a picture of "supporting a truck with a high frame stand" and the replacement picture is showing a vehicle being supported with an axle stand. An axle stand and a frame stand are different.

Comment: This comment refers to question #17 in the self test. Some students (and myself) feel that there are 2 correct answers to this question. We realize that "b" is the correct response according to the answers on page 49, however answer "c" is describing the same thing in a different way. Thank you.

Comment: The "replacement" picture of the disc wheel is not correct. It is a picture of an automotive style wheel and the section of the module is trying to show and explain disc wheels that would be found on a class 8 truck.

Comment: Figures 62, 63 64, 67, 68 are all from a different trade. (Automotive Technician) Theses modules are for the Heavy Equipment Technician trade. I feel the pictures should reflect items from this industry. Thanks.

Comment: Talking about gear reduction, the module says "A force of 44.5N (10lb) is applied to the larger output gear, but because of its increased radius, the output torque is increased to 27.2Nm (20lb-ft). The force should be applied to a smaller input gear.

Comment: The graphics in this entire module are blurry. NOTE: They are the same graphics as before, however somewhere in the transfer they became blurry. Also the digital images for this module that are given to the institutes in PowerPoint form are very blurry.

Comment: Figure 1 used to show a picture of a non-positive displacement pump. The replacement picture is of a turbocharger, which is a pretty loose interpretation of a non-positve displacement pump. My opinion is that the picture should at least be of a pump that pumps liquids. Thank you.
