Part 2 is here! We moved around back to replace the rear shocks, we cracked open the rear axle cover for inspection and cleaning, plus a bonus freebie repair that could save someone's life. https://youtu.be/DyL5vAulC4w

    Ray, You and South Main need to get together and have a good meal at a 1/2 way point between your states–you guys are excellent Mechanics and have a Similar Demeaner in repairing vehicles–I think most viewers that like you also like South Main–Best to Both you Guys….

    HAHA I've done the same thing where you start getting fatigue an close your eyes while you keep twisting the wrench. Like it makes the burn less noticeable🤣🤣

    We have a 97 jeep wrangler, and nobody can find the intermittent leak in our AC system. The entire ac system was inspected, a vacuum test was performed, showing zero leaks, but it still runs dry of refrigerant after 2 to 3 weeks, after slowly getting warmer, every day. The dye test showed nothing. Do you suppose that the compressor could be the culprit, depending on what position it stops at when the engine is stopped? It is the only part that hasn't been removed, and inspected. Thank you for looking at this post!

    it hurts 💔 to see the trouble mechanics go threw to replace bad parts 😪 😕

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars W Greathouse says:

    Hey Ray, I'm not sure if they still have it or not but Napa had a good chart for how much oil is supposed to be in a compressor by the manufacturer of the car/van along with the compressor model on their website.

    Two shops refused to change my Express 2500 A/C belt because ''it takes a special tool''…….I told them they were a special tool and did exactly what you did Ray!

    Thanks!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Noey Garza says:

    I'm not a pro mechanic, only repair things within my boundry. Basically, family and relative vehicles. I'm debating on buying my own AC recovery machine. Hmmm?

    Hello RAY, just wanted to mention that you have a great set of tools, every man should have something similar. I a decent start but nothing like yours.👍🏼 And as you would say, thanks for watching and have a great day.

    My wife told me she had some things for me to do around the house, I told her I can’t right now because I’m watching Rain Man Ray. She said that’s what you’ve been telling me for weeks, and now she said she’s going to teach me how to cook and clean the house up. What’s a man to do?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars real eyes realize real lies says:

    I quite often find myself inspecting orifices too…It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it….I don't inspect nearly as many as I used to, but that's to be expected, I guess…They almost always past inspection in my youth, these days, not so much….

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Baker says:

    FYI in a case where fasteners are not given a torque value, the actual fastener has a torque value assigned. So if a torque value for a system is not given a torque value for that fastener is. Just in case you’re wondering about this.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars xshanghu says:

    How many mechanics in your shop?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kim Nielsen says:

    All the different tools you use, are they your own, or is it the workshops ? I admire the air and batterytools.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Solomon says:

    Check the gap on plugs because not all are gap properly.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Chmelik says:

    5.5mm….yup, never figured that out….90% of the fasteners on copiers built by xerox are 5.5mm

    Man! Without this being on the lift and you working from jack stands, it felt like it was dreary weather since we didn’t see out the garage doors much.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bowhunters says:

    Hear Hear! Me too.Double his wodge whatever rate he's on! After all, we watch his educational if addictive videos so we should help by voicing our support – and his Shares in the Snapped Off Corporation – "Warranteed for Life". Made in China??

    PS: Exactly how long does one of Raymondo's Battery Rachets last?? (the S.S. – Standing Start model).

    Cool vid 1st dude to show compressor debris in a system,goog Joe dude

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan's Learning Curve says:

    What's the difference between an AC service valve and a tire valve?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan's Learning Curve says:

    Thanks for the tip of the chance of having debris in the condenser will compromise performance! I flushed one thinking I was keeping crud out of the replacement compressor. Blockage wasn't one of my thoughts.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan's Learning Curve says:

    You mentioned that you thought there was too much oil. How does that hurt an AC system?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane's Trains says:

    Best way to keep those bolts in that need to go in pre install are small AC o rings, slide it onto the threads all the way back so it doesnt interfere with starting the bolt.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Davis says:

    It is called a crows foot

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrDarkTAP says:

    Comment from the peanut gallery, but if your doing laying on the ground stuff get a foam sleeping pad like for outdoors stuff. Personally use the cheap blue Walmart roll, though you might want to check materials for compatibility with the fluids you're exposed it to. Might even go as far as adding your preferred spray can coating if you have a known good one, as your not gonna sleep or hike with it.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott R says:

    Another "CLICK' so annoying. Another thumbs down . Keep with the annoying "CLICKS" you will keep getting thumbs down,.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars onenblue says:

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GEORGE CULLEN says:

    Ray, you start dragging the A/C machine and you will lose points for style.

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Dennis says:

    That electric ratchet you use is a real winner. You work that thing hard and it just keeps doing the job. What is it?
