    Expanding pipe…..Sorry folks, you have forward and backward, male and female, in and out, up and down. Even impact wrenches know the difference. LOL

    Brazing

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danish Roy says:

    This man really Is Jack of all trades. Those look like great welds too. He’s taught me so much on being a better mechanic.

    where is your hearing protection? other then that u have a nice channel.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johnny Sechrist says:

    Had a few pipe stretchers since the 70's…great tools.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars billybad905 9toes says:

    People were using a touch to weld long before they had welders so im sure that they could use them fairly well

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bofa Deez Nuts says:

    If it smells like Chicken , your hand might be on fire.

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

    USE CAR BATTERY TO WELD EXHAUST

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Painter says:

    Yes never seize one drop will cover the bolt the user and the tool

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jo10Mo says:

    When I welded things like that in school we had a can of flux to combine with the filler rod

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rationalguy says:

    I bought a 1994 xlt rice ranger (Mazda) for $600.00. It has the 4.0 OHV. I Replaced the clutch and exhaust system, including two mini-cats in series. It passes Utah emissions inspection perfectly. A new clutch and cooling system overhaul and it works perfectly. Odo says says 260,000. Apparently the 4.0 OHV V6 is long lived.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tyler Williams says:

    HOLY FUCK THOSE WELDS WERE BEAUTIFUL THOUGHT A MECHINE DID IT!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Andrews says:

    I'm not a mechanic but I try to do what I can without creating too many bridges to cross, but, wouldn't it be a little easier to expand the pipe if it was heated up first with a torch?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Molumby says:

    Thanks for another video. 👍🏻

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars joshua Welch says:

    everything is better with brake cleaner, except for your eyeballs,,, ive got my self ttwice with it ,,, instantly blind,,,,, dont do that lol.. just watching hours of sma as usuall…

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Sawyer says:

    They do sell bench vices with pipe jaws…..as you know I am sure.
    Guess it's time for you get get on Amazon again. A slight downward tilt to the end of the exhaust pipe will make sure water drips out, not back in.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Tressell says:

    Could I get the recipe for English Muffins? Chicken and cheese prep etc? Thank you fae Scotland. Btw what is a muffin? Half a burger bun?

    “That’s why I married yuh. You thought it was for something else”😂

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FliesLikeABrick says:

    It's been a few years since I saw this video. I recently picked up a '95 ranger and am finishing putting a new engine in it, with exhaust work needed too. I was finishing the exhaust work last night, realized it's almost exactly the same job you did here…. and between watching this video and owning this truck, I have since picked up the same Lisle expander kit and used it to do almost exactly the same repair last night — no flange behind the cats, and installing a new muffler after cutting the flange off the new intermediate pipe (using the old intermediate pipe to bridge a gap in the new system).

    Thanks as always for the great content. Lessons from this video a few years ago have stuck with me and resulted in a better repair than I would have otherwise done on my new-to-me Ranger

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AlGoreRhythm says:

    "look at this, some jackass welded it on!"
    3 minutes later:
    "So I'm gonna weld this here on"
    Lol

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

    You create a puddle an dab the filler rod

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

    My friend please wear the correct eye protection life is not so good blind ,no job is worth the damage to your eyes. I care,,,,,,

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aphrodyte says:

    That is where those get hacked up. You can buy cat to tailpipe kit for about $150 for older rangers.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joel Hunter says:

    Silicone spray works great on rubber hangers

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peet Ky says:

    welding arc rays cause cancer. always wear gloves sleeves and a hood when arc welding.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john turner says:

    Upset did all that work and did not here truck run with new exhaust

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sean benoit says:

    got same tool shake the fillings out of me teeth lol

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Buglioli says:

    Peanut butter and jelly you got it EO. Thanks JB

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Yeah its pretty exhausted

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Painter says:

    I've fixed a lot of power steering pumps that cracked with that method back in the early 80s and we used to gas weld cracked radiators before they was plastic

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul HENDERSON says:

    Lot of effort will last longer than the car great job

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rory Weber says:

    What do you mount your camera on

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cliff Glines says:

    you could never guess how many wire coat hangers I've used to weld exhausts. They work as good as bought rod but are free. Of course they didn't have the new fangled tig or mig welders when I was learning. It was gas or stick arc welding only.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave P. says:

    Great channel. Call it what you want, but Mrs. O has it part right. Instead of chicken I remember English muffins with pizza sauce and peperoni for breakfast. Also tuna fish on English muffins for breakfast. My mom was most likely trying to empty out her refrigerator. There's nothing a real man would not eat. Toasted English muffin with butter and caned tuna fish in miracle whip it don't get better. Now go write that country song. And buy Mrs. O a washing machine. Portable.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars General Disarray says:

    Some things to remember re welding;
    1. Use gauntlets and cover up exposed skin, not only so you don't burn your arms, etc, but arc welding throws out a sh1t ton of UV which can cause and/or seriously increase your risk of cancer
    2. Use a proper welding helmet, it prevents arc eye, protects your face from stray sparks, etc, and again prevents your exposure to high levels of UV that arc welding crates.
    3. If you are welding galvanized pipe, always remove the zinc oxide coating from the area you're going to be welding, ensure proper ventilation, and wear a respirator, as the zinc oxide fumes that are liberated can cause serious health issues and even death

    thisdd guy must be blind lol

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kennynva KE4HVE says:

    Not saying what to do…but maybe a hole drilled in the lowest part of the muffler might help the life….but like you said, it will only be around for a year anyway….

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Test McGee says:

    Flanges are good for keeping exhaust component lengths short for ease of handling, shipping, etc. When I build exhausts I weld them from end to end. No rattles, no gaskets, no fasteners to rust and seize. You can always cut it later if you need to.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jockey Shift says:

    WHY did the customer not take this to and EXHAUST shop where that adapter would just be made into the end of the mid pipe for alot less time and cost?Also not bothering with that huge muffler and driveshaft issue and tail pipe cost and just run out the side?Gettin a cylinder type muffler would lose the driveshaft problem and for the 6 Cyl or 4 the best I;ve found[ and cheap too] is the Jones full bore twin turbo, louvered intake tube,louvered out using the can diameter ,no glas packing to cut drone.Nice deep sound in different lengths and a pair on a v-8 will never havin you payin stupid money for chamber muffs again.Even performs really well in a 2-1 set up on a Harley! Best fix by far on Ranger exhaust..

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Gondolier says:

    Hey Eric, nice job. Why not use a caliper to measure the ID of the hole and expand the pipe until the caliper sizes match. Save a lot of test fitting.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lisa West says:

    You forgot to replace the muffler bearings!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vito gio says:

    it ok we all do sometimes were human to..

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frank campbell says:

    where in NYS ?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Billy Smith says:

    HAHhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, Syumbled across this old but godie! I hope you can still dig and stick weld. Love watching the acetylene welding
