    Great work as always Ray look forward to part 2 the install on the headers @Rainman Ray's Repairs

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard von Zweigbergk says:

    Top tip. Always tap the heads of bolt/studs you want to release in aluminum. Steel makes room in the aluminum and helps penetrating oil.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    3 broken studs that I say is a good day Ray very good day @Rainman Ray's Repairs

    Bumped a curb parking ice and it knocked the steering wheel out of alignment. Took it to the shop and they must have removed the steering linkage bolt because they put it in backwards and it worked it’s way out. Lost steering completely. Thank god it happened in a big open parking lot.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    That manifold came out pretty easy only 2 broken studs not bad @Rainman Ray's Repairs

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Perry Williams says:

    Dam, I have to wait?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Kourelis says:

    Hi Ray, I always find it interesting how we use the words nuts and bolts interchangeably. We say bolts when we want to say nuts and vice versa. I wonder why that is? Sorry for the ramble, it just fascinates me how many people do that.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Fender removed room to do anything for days you can remove the coils from the side with all that room grab a chair and sit and relax and do the job without leaning over the grill and core support nice @Rainman Ray's Repairs

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Very nice headers Are they Gibson headers ? Oh nice BBK shorty headers @Rainman Ray's Repairs

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 79tazman says:

    You must have bad eyes missing all the fasteners

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Miller says:

    Hey Ray! Love the videos, keep ' em coming. Question, where can I get some of those green brushes you use to clean off gasket surfaces.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brothermunk says:

    Where a socket falls I would be cursing, Ray – Gravity. 😆 I would have no patience

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars No Time42 says:

    After replacing the passenger manifold bolts (and sanding like the LS video) on my ‘05 Grand Cherokee, I’m extremely jealous of all the open space in the Ram.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Bevan says:

    lesson of the day always one more fastener

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Fitzgerald says:

    Fords are the worst risky dink little studs snap off to easy.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wakcedout says:

    I like shops that will let me supply the parts I need replaced. Lets me find a good price and usually good price for goos brand, while I still get to have the part properly installed.

    Have one near me like that and the labor rate is always reasonable and the owner gives good recommendations on brands to buy. Got moog control arms on his suggestion and got them cheaper online than parts stores sold them for.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Mack says:

    If you would have left it over night to cool off you don't get burned, but you might have broke half of the bolts!
    Murphy's law and I are old enemies…

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ahoy there mate says:

    You just answered my question Ray some stupid engineer in his idiotic reason put fluid tubes next to the exhaust probably it was 5 bucks cheaper than doing a proper job

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roy says:

    Hi Ray, could you provide an amazon link to the finger cleaner heads, I've searched and can't find them, I really need these in my tool box, thanks

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ARTJP says:

    Another awesome job. I learn every time I watch you. Couldn't figure out why you didn't disconnect that wire and just worked around it

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Papa Toms Thoughts says:

    Are you not concerned about getting weld slag into exhaust chambers and causing damage to engine?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ahoy there mate says:

    Ray why is there a heat shield on the exhaust ??? there would be shit loads of air blowing over it

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew C. says:

    Hi Ray, how are you? Anyway I seriously love your videos! You are an amazing mechanic! & funny too! I learn a lot from your videos & love them!, It's always hilarious when that's phone rings & you take out of your time just to say doo-doo dee-doo-doo & that cracks me up & as well when you ask your fellow workers to do it too! Lol, I was wondering if you have or can make a short fun compilation of your "doo doo dee doo doo's"? Please? Lol thanks & keep up the good awesome work that everyone loves watching & you take care! 😃

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Davies says:

    Just popped in to let you know you welded it wrong. I don't know what right is, but by definition it's wrong, because it's on the internet.

    Isn't he the qb for the Saints?

    Ford V10. The ultimate challenge! Disconnect the battery first Ray!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Benny Boy says:

    Those oem manifolds probably flow just as well as the shorty's, customers choice but I seen oem manifolds from the 90s flowing as good as most shorties. Plus even mid length and long tubes only make noticeable change at high rpm so unless you're racing they don't help that much. You'll start to lose significant low end power with long tubes and race manifolds.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Beta Hours says:

    Hey rainman would you make a video explaining the pros of cons of flat rate in your experience. Its for people thinking about starting a career in the auto industry

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gotj says:

    That ratchet needs to be greased.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DerkuiDerkui says:

    I'm not even a mechanic and your content is amazing! It's like prescription of what I need after a long day of work. Subscribed!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clayton Sutton says:

    The wife and I are going for a long road trip till I get confirmation on Part 2 of this repair, thanks Ray 😏

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Weir says:

    A reverse drill bit would have taken that stud out easily, no mess either.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TankGuy3 says:

    Did you work at a different shop a year ago? I watched an older video of yours, and it didn't look like the same area, the stall looked different, and your lift was a different color. Not to mention the Topdon scanner.

    EDIT: Also the lack of doodley-doo's.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tamara Hill says:

    How is Ryan doing?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N6DL says:

    where does that 'brush' head you use on your die-grinder come from? I found sandpaper and scrubbie types but not that finger stile?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Celydus says:

    Everyone in the shop is thinking OH NO Ray's using the welder again

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Buckley says:

    Man, that nut welding section on the broken stud had me thinking that the whole thing would be a failure. I was so happy when it worked, and the stud came out! I know than it doesn't always work out that easily.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scottjet says:

    oh man! just like when you have to wait till next week for part 2 in the old tv days. had that done to my 2010, ten years ago. might be doing it again..

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Amy jo Jinkerson says:

    those bolts are the worst to get off

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hate ForAll says:

    interesting that even in my 05 the same manifold bolts are broken.
