    My wife chipped a tooth that way. She said it was a mechanics nut. I work in a office. 🤔

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Friedrich Wilhelm says:

    question i see a hex tip is there a reason why you didn't use a socket?

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Ron Norman says:

    Nice job on the manifold overall though much respect

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Ron Norman says:

    Running up studs you should double knot it and use a socket with a ratchet makes life a hell of a lot easier and faster than with a pair of pliers man come on dude

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Underground Lair of the Squankum says:

    Phew! This project was exhausting!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nino Ceballos says:

    What purpose does the springs at the end spark plug wires of the heat shield do ?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bcyoung88 says:

    how about some high temp anti-seize for the next time?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Neal says:

    You can't beat a well calibrated torque arm. 💪

    I was hoping you’d do a before and after sound. I was not disappointed. Awesome series, thanks for sharing.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry says:

    Ray you are a master at the workmanship and your commitment of wisdom is very bright 🌞 .

    I'm going to have to stop watching this channel, there is way too much garbage noise certain people call music and it gives me migraines.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cutter Sidwell says:

    You'll have that on these big jobs. Love the content ❤️

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Larrett says:

    Those curvy wrenches were a necessity to re-re a Cummins fuel pump fyi.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Brown says:

    In case it helps anyone not already familiar, they're not cheap but precision flat ground stones are supposedly real useful when you want to make sure a surface is flat.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K Campbell says:

    why by God don't the put a replaceable filter on the trans???? ….oB

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LINCOLN-ECHO says:

    Wow it’s a amazing how watching you use all them battery powered tools when I was turning wrench it was making sure I didn’t have water in in my air line and my tool was lubed up with oil awesome job I can see now how those new tools get the job done faster

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    you should be able to use an inverted Torx bit on those studs.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Duhamel says:

    At 26min was that something broken towards the bottom left corner?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Duhamel says:

    You pretty much ported and polished the exhaust manifold

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bandit Eastlick says:

    I would had, have done, and couldn't close up a heads like that ether

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thomas roberts says:

    Time to Brazillian wax your arms.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Somma says:

    Did you replace the other o-ring on the Y on the passenger side? We saw you do the drivers side but not the passenger side?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Keller says:

    Thanks for all your videos. I experienced what I consider to be a shop trying to scam me . I took my vehicle in for AC recharge and after they charged it they told me my system wasn’t working and I’d have to bring it back for diagnostics. Took it home checked all my fuses and relays noticed a few missing placed a jumper wire ac clutch kicked on put appropriate fuse in ac fixed. I want to think all mechanics are honest but this test my faithfulness. Ps I use this shop all the time.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1soupasaurus says:

    Gonna have to warranty that electric ratchet and get yelled at by the commenters about how you are a thief.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Sowards says:

    Ray's port and polish technique.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Sowards says:

    Do you ever run a tap through the holes before installing new studs?

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marack Obama says:

    a tip to remove studs – screw 2 nuts on it and tighten them to each other – you will simulate a bolt head. Then – unscrew the stud using the lower/inner nut

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheMechanicj says:

    As long as I got paid 30 hours labor I’d. E cool with flat rate on this job sadly it paid 3

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mission Hills says:

    If you read this Ray, can you comment on what a reasonable amount of miles (longevity) a domestic V/8 engined vehicle should get in Florida? Almost all the vehicles you work on only exist in auto recycling facilities where I'm from, like 200,000 miles is just jaw dropping for me to see!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mission Hills says:

    Between the Snap On stereo and that port polish job you added another 23 h/p to this unit!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philippe P. says:

    Awesome

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Burgess says:

    I use my S wrenches maybe twice a year but they sure are handy when you need them.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Ciarrocchi says:

    4lb. test monofilament line through the holes on the manifold will hold the gasket in place. When it gets hot, the mono disappears. Also works very well for valve cover gaskets.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Howard Pringle says:

    F I R E …….goood!!!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gusgiesel says:

    I was told years ago that the hottest part of a flame is where the visible flame ends, at the point. Maybe incorrect? Or at least not correct in the case of this particular torch? Also those old studs have a hex on the tip so a 6-point socket can be used to remove them from the flange, instead of pliers, if you chose to. Thanks for another good video.

    i hiear bla bla heineiken all ready a good start off a film ( i m from holland )

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cat22 says:

    Chase the holes out with a tap and then use never seize

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kenneth shumate says:

    When I was younger and couldn’t afford to take my car to the shop I did all the work, I HATED IT! You make it look so easy. You are why I am willing to pay so much to have a talented person such as yourself do the things I cannot!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew Lyons says:

    i think you should have run a tap thru those flanges. just to seat the studs all the way down

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guy Werry says:

    Part of why I like watching you, Ray, is the professionalism and patience – I'm a very casual mechanic and things that would have me throwing wrenches and temper tantrums you just handle.
    Good stuff.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N B says:

    that hdr is junk and video quality is ruined

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john stadelman says:

    My Man, you are an inspiration! Love this channel.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Segond says:

    Those exhaust donuts come out? Fml

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars randell gribben says:

    old trick we use at our shop on the sparkin plugs.. slip a rubber hose over the end of the spark plug that fits snuggly,, about a foot long.. makes it easier to thread them in, esp. the hard ones in the back..i know that you are busy.. and dont answer many post.. but keep some diff. sizes of rubber hoses around..

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daryl Morgan says:

    Awesome job once again Ray . Looking forward to a lot more videos. Cheers fro Australia

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars xxxxCOOKIESxxxx says:

    You played it smart ordering the spark plugs.Knowing they might get broken.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Pearce says:

    I assume you replaced the temp sensor
