    FANTASTIC video! How to execute a plan and have firm confidence in it down to the last step! Curious to know the brands of the sensors

    Ray, that thing is called an odometer, not a clock. You're not working on tractors.

    Why not fit a socketbit over it?

    I have done a couple of those and they are generally all rusty but I never had one break off like that

    Remember what Eric O said, just because it's new, doesn't mean it's good.

    You are dulling your bits by drilling too fast. Slow and steady, you want to see long strips off the bit not powder.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Clint Helling says:

    slow down those bits when drilling will help you. When you're making powder instead of curly fries. you're burning up your drill bits cutting edge.

    NASA never uses the word "failure" but instead uses the phrase "attempt at success" to keep the confidence of the citizens up.

    I am an ASE Master tech, and your diagnostic flow is right on, BUT, what I love MOST is your style of commentary….
    Very similar to mine! Great sense of humor!!!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Smith says:

    Great job 👍

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason White says:

    What diagnostic software are you using?

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

    I'm sure a lot of people are here to see exactly how to do some certain thing, and I'm sure some "experts" are here to troll, but I am here because I enjoy you bringing me to work with you. We aren't talking about politics, we aren't talking about everything that is wrong in the world today. We're just here, hanging out, enjoying the jokes, and maybe teaching me something along the way.

    Reeeee. Hahahaha

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars numberyellow says:

    I came here expecting loud noises, and i was not disappointed. And, as a bonus, i got strategic violence.

    And when the new sensors went in, and you used reasonable clicks… perfection.. 😂

    Excellent video.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dick Laycock says:

    I really enjoy the thought process, i do the same work but in the middle of no where with minimal tools, i ctually watch your videos on my days off when im back in civilisation..

    I understand that nowadays it is known as "knocking".
    When I first started driving is was known as "pinking".
    Knocking referred to worn big-end journals.

    Been in your situation and ended up using quick set JB weld metal epoxy. Used a small brush (kind you use with anti seize) to carefully put it on the edges, let it dry 30 mins and it worked great.

    I love the folks who claim that these GM trucks were so great. 107k on the odometer and it’s had a full suspension rebuild, the engine torn apart twice and an oil pan gasket. I had a similar vintage F150 that towed at least 4-5k pounds every day for 200k miles and all I ever had to fix was a coil pack. It was unfortunate that a 3/4 ton dodge tried to get a new ford tailgate as a hood ornament at 65 mph. My old Suburban however, is a parts pit. At 250k it’s had a transmission, rear end, 2 starters, alternator, fuel pump (just filled it too…that sucked) and an ignition switch. It leaks oil, trans fluid, and power steering fluid. The front suspension is shot, the exhaust manifold is broken, the air conditioning doesn’t work, gear indicator is out in the dash, 2 of the doors won’t open anymore, if it’s plastic, it’s broken. Worst f’n vehicle I’ve ever owned. I’m glad it’s only driven about 100 miles a year or I’d go broke completely just trying to keep the fluids contained.

    Thanks for taking us on a wild ride. That seemed like a real booger to deal with.

    Your center punch…. there is a rod inside that acts Ike a hammer. Take it out and smoothen the end edges on a sharpening stone so it don't hang up inside when it's pressed down. It's suppose to meet a small orifice and hang up until enough pressure forces it to click in then it hammers the pin inside.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Elushik says:

    Great trouble shooting and fix. Love those videos…
