Spare Parts, Four Undocumented Teenagers, One Ugly Robot, and the Battle for the American Dream

Creator: Joshua Davis | Biography & Autobiography - 2014-12-02

Tells the story of how, with the help of two inspiring science teachers, four undocumented Mexican immigrants in Arizona put together an underwater robot from scavenged parts and went on to win the National Underwater Robotics Competition ...

Publisher: Macmillan

About this book
Four undocumented Mexican American students, two great teachers, one robot-building contest . . . and a major motion pictureIn 2004, four Latino teenagers arrived at the Marine Advanced Technology Education Robotics Competition at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They were born in Mexico but raised in Phoenix, Arizona, where they attended an underfunded public high school. No one had ever suggested to Oscar, Cristian, Luis, or Lorenzo that they might amount to much—but two inspiring science teachers had convinced these impoverished, undocumented kids from the desert who had never even seen the ocean that they should try to build an underwater robot. And build a robot they did. Their robot wasn't pretty, especially compared to those of the competition. They were going up against some of the best collegiate engineers in the country, including a team from MIT backed by a $10,000 grant from ExxonMobil. The Phoenix teenagers had scraped together less than $1,000 and built their robot out of scavenged parts. This was never a level competition—and yet, against all odds . . . they won! But this is just the beginning for these four, whose story—which became a key inspiration to the DREAMers movement—will go on to include first-generation college graduations, deportation, bean-picking in Mexico, and service in Afghanistan. Joshua Davis's Spare Parts is a story about overcoming insurmountable odds and four young men who proved they were among the most patriotic and talented Americans in this country—even as the country tried to kick them out.

    Original equipment spark plug from Ford, work perfectly!

    5/5 Jean R. Kroeger II - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pack of 8 Genuine Motorcraft Spark Plug SP-493 AGSF32PM These are excellent OEM spark plugs at a great price. I installed them in my 1998 Lincoln Town Car with its 4.6L motor. At about 130,000 miles the motor ran rough one day, and the service engine light came on. I used my Autel OBDII code reader to check the car's computer to see what was wrong. I also purchased the code reader on Amazon several years ago. The trouble code indicated it was the spark plug on cylinder number 4. I replaced it, and the engine ran fine again. The removed spark plug was very worn, so I bought these to replace all 8 of the plugs. These plugs are pre-gapped, and alteration is not recommended. Them come boxed individually in the 4-pack boxes of 4. Excellent item. Work perfectly. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 20, 2015

    OEM quality at a fair price

    5/5 Tony (The Wild West, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pack of 8 Genuine Motorcraft Spark Plug SP-493 AGSF32PM I needed a new set of plugs since the old ones were in pretty rough shape and my P71 had a little over 130,000 miles. The car now idles quieter and the RPMs at highway speeds have been slightly reduced. My car now purrs like a smitten kitten, gas mileage is up a tad bit, and now has a little more kick to the throttle than before. All in all, the procedure in changing these were fairly easy and they're good for at least 60,000-100,000 miles. Why go with anything else other than Motorcraft parts?

    Purchased these for a used car that had over 200k miles....very glad I did!

    5/5 ellz - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pack of 8 Genuine Motorcraft Spark Plug SP-493 AGSF32PM I bought a used Explorer 4.6L with over 200,000 miles and figured it would be a good idea to at least change out the plugs. Boy am I glad I did! The ones that were in there were in horrible shape! These new ones are what should have been in there from the factory and I set all of the plugs to a 0.54 gap and voila! I added a pic of the old plugs to show why you should consider replacing your plugs every 100,000 miles! Best of luck!!, August 18, 2016

    Overall, I'm satisfied.

    The good:If you want to replace the shell of your SP, this is it. It came with a complete shell, buttons, contact pads for said buttons, a screen cover, sticker for the back and a Nintendo emblem for the top. My brother gave me his old sp which he used to carry in the same pocket as his keys. THE HORROR!...Now the sp is looking good as new thanks to this shell replacement.The bad:it does not come with a speaker, or the box depicted in the the image on amazon, I found that pretty dishonest and this is really the only reason why a star was lost.The plastic is not the same quality as what came from Nintendo, but you really shouldn't expect it to be. This is a third party "bootleg" of the real deal, and that said, the quality is as good as it could get. It has some rough edges that you might want to VERY finely sand down, but it should't be necessary.

    Dont Listen To All The Negative Reviews!

    Don't listen to all the negative reviews about this product! If your half way technically minded and can accurately follow the instructional videos on youtube, you will have NO problem changing the shell on your gameboy advance sp! I will admit installing the hinges and attaching the screen's ribbon cable to the motherboard can be a bit tricky but its not that hard and youd have to be pretty uncoordinated and/or unpatient to mess this up.Now about the product itself- Its not quite as nice as the original shell was but it still works very well, in fact, I doubt youd even tell the difference. It has more of a matte finish to it compared to the original, so its more scratch resistant. I have absolutely no complaints about it other than the replacement hinges arent quite as smooth as the original ones when opening and closing the screen. This is just a minor gripe that again most people wont even notice.It comes with a tri wing screwdriver and even a new... 5/5 Brett C. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Full Parts Replacement Housing Shell Pack for Nintendo Gameboy Advance SP GBA SP(Black)(Battery is Not included) (Video Game) After a decade of wear, my SP was looking a little tired. I ordered a new shell, hoping to fix that. It was an easy process, and the refurbished device works like a charm. The shell is nice, but arrived prescratched. Also, I'd buy your own screwdriver--the supplied one broke before I had even finished dismantling the original.Pros:Comes with the specialty tri wing screwdriverComes with new buttons and stickersEasy to installCons:Tri wing screwdriver broke within first five minutes of useCase arrived with a few scratches Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 6, 2015

    I recently purchased this for my 05 F150 XLT 5.4L V3. It had been occasionally misfiring under load but the misfires were never consistent enough to throw a trouble code or turn on the check engine light. The original plugs and coils had about 130,000 miles on them so I figured they were due. After a little fight, and lots of determination, I was able to remove all the original plugs without breaking a single one. I installed these new plugs and coils without issue and my truck is running awesome. I gained about 2.5 MPG on the highway and the throttle response was noticeably improved. I'm very pleased with this purchase and would recommend it without hesitation. I will say that the labor involved in changing these plugs and coils is a little time consuming and not for those who are not mechanically inclined. I also got the Lisle Broken Spark Plug tool but was lucky enough to not have to use it.
