I'm neither a mechanic nor an electrician, but I spent 2.5 years writing automotive manuals, particularly the electrical system troubleshooting. I know how to do a lot of things under the hood of those trucks, but I have never performed the actual tasks. We had a team of mechanics on hand to do that for us.

Without being a Ford engineer or ASE mechanic, I replaced the
carburetor, camshaft, timing chain, and intake manifold in my T-bird.
And, I could write about it, too.

Without being an electrical engineer or electrician, I have wired
circuits in a house. And, I could write about it too.
