    I’m willing to bet if the outer gasket was going out the wheel seal on the inside of the hub is on its way out too

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Lewis says:

    Reee time: forte, as in strength or proficiency, is pronounced “fort”. “For-tay” has an accent over the e and is a ballet move.

    I've got a 2001 duramax 6.6 litre , needs injectors replaced. Are you interested in doing a video on replacing them?

    MHC is a rental/leasing/sales company, I pickup tractors and Box trucks from them every year for the fireworks company during the 4th.

    When we have issues with a rental or lease vehicle they do the repairs, interesting.

    I did heavy diesel for awhile and what I determined is that its all the same concept, just heavy…lol

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james petersen says:

    all of the HINO plastic steer axle caps will eventually leak, try doing that job at 2:00 am at -20 Celsius or -4 Fahrenheit at the side of the highway in a mountain pass.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Bochanesky says:

    Be sure to make sure the little vent hole on the rubber plug isn't plugged up as well that can cause a future leak.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Crazy Fisherman says:

    Cheap and easy for medium or heavy. Use a piece of cardboard to place under it and guide it into a drainpan

    1. You put coolant in that engine not knowing what coolant to put in and you used a coolant designed for light duty vehicles in a medium duty diesel. That's very bad, you diluted the SCA charge in that cooling system as well as possibly adding fluids that are not compatible with what's already in that system. Using light duty coolant designed for passenger vehicles in a medium to heavy duty diesel engine can result in scaling, corrosion and cavitation. I have seen many posters at truck stops telling drivers not to do what you just did.

    2. You replaced the hub on the steer with one meant for a trailer. While I don't think it's a DOT violation, I'm pretty sure there is a reason the wheel seal on a steer is different than one on a trailer. Check your parts next time, if your not sure call a semi truck dealership, their service departments are always willing to answer whatever questions you have and those steer caps are so universal that every shop and parts store sells them.

    3. You didn't drive it then check the level again, it may be low.

    4. You appear to have overfilled the radiator. Medium and heavy duty diesel trucks operate between 190 to 225 degrees before the cooling fan revs up to cool it down. I didn't see a surge tank on that truck so that gap inside the radiator between the coolant and the cap was for expansion, now your customer will probably have coolant coming out the overflow.

    Any vehicle that has a GVWR or GCWR of 26,001 lbs or more is considered a commercial vehicle by federal law. The company that owns that truck is required to inspect the truck daily, keep records of defects AND keep records of who worked on what. In the event this vehicle is involved in an accident where someone is hurt, law enforcement and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will investigate (the FMCSA is in charge of all commercial vehicle safety rules and they issue fines for violations as well as investigate accidents where people are hurt or killed), if an accident is caused because of something you worked on they will find out, in addition when the person injured or their family sues they will get the maintenance records of that vehicle from the owner during the lawsuit.

    Knowing all of this, here you are on a video posted to the internet working on a commercial vehicle's wheel hub assembly, which is a safety critical component that a person can be placed out of service By law enforcement if it's found to be defective (out of service means that vehicle does not move from it's spot, not even by tow truck until the safety defect is fixed), and your doing it on a video you have publicly posted to the internet and acknowledging that you dont work on commercial vehicles.

    If that vehicle has something go wrong on that hub and it causes an accident where someone gets hurt, this video will be EXHIBIT A at your trial for criminally negligent manslaughter and at the civil wrongful death lawsuit.

    If I were you I'd take it down and not touch commercial vehicles until you are trained to work on them.

    The brake cleaner/ residual into the street 😔 I’m surprised by this.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Miguel Diaz says:

    is a nissan hino truck japanices

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jorge fernandez says:

    Nic job Ray.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tykron Johnson says:

    Hey Rainman. You are methodical. I like that you show a few failures.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fatcat Towing says:

    With the oil fluid that leaked out, Wouldn't the brakes be covered and damaged?.Keep up the GREAT videos "Click"

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Kozina says:

    Great job Ray those gaskets never ever give up easy.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Branton says:

    Mhc is a kenworth trademark for their parts i think or a series of dealers

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nonya Business says:

    actually, overfilling will blow out the wheel seal on the back of hub

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nonya Business says:

    kudos to you! love the fact that you ALWAYS do a side by side comparisson before swapping parts

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gordon peden says:

    Nice job my man. I love your work ethic. You do everything even the tedious mundane thing with 100% application topping up a radiator, and scraping off old gasket.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Wicks says:

    Great content, I'm in the same trade as you and your videos are great information.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Mogensen says:

    Love the content

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G R says:

    That’s not a big truck it’s a tonka toy ✌️

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frazeeken says:

    Should have driven to a car wash to hose off all that oil plus that would have put oil all the way back into the bearing set

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brendon Pearce says:

    Congratulations on reaching 200k!! You've taught me more about diagnosing problems than my automotive course ever did, and I'm proud to be one of your subscribers 🙂

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Delikon Three says:

    Anybody here a fan of Bus Grease Monkey, Indiana Diesel and Twin Stick Garage?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Smith says:

    Also be careful mixing different coolants they are known to have detrimental effects, some will turn to a gel.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Smith says:

    Just a tip put the plug at the top and fill through that Allen key , over filling isn’t really detrimental as there is a small breather hole in the red cap so no pressurisation ( Ex heavy vehicle mechanic)
    Cheers

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shaun H says:

    So to make it simple for those who are intimidated by medium and heavy duty trucks…

    Super simple overall and if you work on a diesel pickup…you can easily work on them.

    The biggest suck about them is size. Other than that they are just another airpump driven vehicle.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michelediane miller says:

    Reeeeeeeee. The plug on side of seal is the fill hole/drain hole

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Van Hillbilly Halstead III says:

    I've seen them blow the rubber out

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Van Hillbilly Halstead III says:

    I was telling you but you wasn't listening lol

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fetguf says:

    Its like driving around in a building…hmm seem more like an outhouse compared to mine.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Dalton says:

    Bus Greasemonkey does hundreds of these along with some really heavy axle related stuff.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Flat Rock says:

    Don’t like heavy jobs like clutches on transports?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don S says:

    I've always used 80-90w gear oil in the bearings and it has worked fine for the last 30+ years

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Lorman says:

    Need to get one of those “make a funnels”. I use them to drain the oil on the semi hubs.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john walsh says:

    If you give it enough time it will eventually stop leaking out 😂

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LazyPurplePeeps says:

    If it had air brakes you would need a commercial license to drive.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Honey Bear says:

    I tappity-tapped that like button!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Zhuravlev says:

    hinos are trash, i work at a mack/volvo dealer and for some reason we sell hinos and they are all rusty piles. only pre emissions hinos are passable in my book

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars barajas j says:

    I do those trucks almost every day at rwc

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NCR01464 says:

    Love the air brake noise replication… sounded accurate to a hino. 🤣

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bad Batch says:

    Making air brake sounds in a box truck without them is a natural part of the operation.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ag Design & Fabrication says:

    Gotta love the access around the engine unlike the light weight counterparts ( modern cars and trucks). There's room to work!!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay B says:

    In my 26 yrs of driving a class 9 semi. Well it depends on operating temp. They do make a Hub Oil though. I like to add LUCAS Synthetic oil treatment of about 25%. It adds fuel economy and a smoother ride.
