    Well, very interesting indeed, but seems to be very overcomplicated and expensive. A little lubrication of the belt would have solved the squeking problem as well. To achieve a continuous solution you only have to apply the spell "Stay!" to the oil, and the problem would have been fixed!

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Christianson says:

    All thread and weld a nut

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars koturaljko roler says:

    Threaded rod, weld a nut.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lester Burtard says:

    0k. I had this argument. 1/4- 20 size (bolts) and larger are "Bolts". Smaller than that are "screws". I.E. 10-32, 10-24, 8-32, 6-31, and on and on(0-80). I'll wait.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Toal says:

    Thank You Ray for blocking out the welding. It shows you care about peoples sight not like some other channels.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gudenau says:

    The light dimmers work by turning the light on and off with the A/C waveform, if it was resistive the dimmer would melt then catch on fire from the massive amount of waste heat.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Swartzwelder says:

    I don't miss V belts one bit! Great video! Thanks for posting so much, I watch daily!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TEAC Fan says:

    Start a side business: Ray's Custom Bolt Manufacturing, we make any length of bolt from other bolts for all your automotive bolt needs!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Seb Brosig says:

    A new revenue stream for you: leave out some "non-essential" parts like this water pump bracket, tighten up the screws to triple-click to compensate and make sure the belt squeal only starts a fortnight later, and sell the gained parts on eBay!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Hitchcock says:

    You should have ground a taper on both ends of the bolt you would get deeper penetration on your weld. Just a suggestion

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Xlaxsauce says:

    Guessing the bolt was coated.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Slugg0matic says:

    This is the first YT video where I've seen a technician transformed into a mechanic so easily. Nice fix for the bolt even if you are catching heat for not cutting a V in it.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SlimPickins says:

    You usually do pretty good work, but if I was the customer and saw you jank that bolt together while I'm paying full shop rate, I wouldn't be too happy. Go to Fastenal or a real hardware store and spend the 5 bucks. Didn't even weld it good.

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

    probably could have found parts for cj jeeps on many of the 4×4 lift online stores

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scooter30FTW says:

    Ray,do you not have a salvage yard in your area where you could maybe find parts for older vehicles?

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

    threaded rod would have also worked

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Dawson says:

    The long bolt was a fail just a plan B it worked in the end.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars no name says:

    That engine looks like plastic.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sman7290 says:

    There's a reason that the power steering pump pulley has round holes in the face of it… to run your socket through to pull the bolts out (or put them in).

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jeeper360 says:

    It was the early 80s that had the flipping controversy not 90s for jeep. That is why keep quietly discontinued the CJ5 after 83 because they were introducing the XJ and didn't want any distractions. The 90s were about the ford explorer.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Hartman says:

    As a former NASA engineer I appreciated the Astronaut helmet image while you were welding. lol

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Xterraforce says:

    Imagine being the owner of this Jeep paying for parts and labor to fix the slipping belt issue but not spending a few more dollars on a new belt.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars oldhp mopar says:

    Get a threaded rod next time and use a nut.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Reiss says:

    No threaded rod?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 03natib says:

    Next time use all thread and result would have been the same

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Green says:

    You are confusing the CJ-5 with it's publicized handling with the YJ. The YJ is lower and had a wider track hence being more stable. If fact that publicity is the reason that Jeep is a YJ and not called CJ-10.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave says:

    You could have just welded the bracket on

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars q80aziz says:

    Hardware. seller deserves negative feedback .

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robbo Ironink says:

    Man, that squealing sound was like someone was running their nails down a chalkboard. Please don’t do it again.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stanley Mcfalls The Southern Comedian says:

    OK now we need the brake cleaner effects 😂😂😂

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Rhoads says:

    Having owned two first gen RX-7's, an '81 and an '83, I can confirm they do indeed run on black magic. And voodoo. They have carbs, so there's always voodoo involved with those.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Car Mo says:

    Oh Ray the bolt after you had the 1 tack on it you should have ground a grove at the other side, 2 reasons you get rid of the cadmium and now weld steel for a stronger hold then grind off the tack weld and reweld that side that would make it strong. Well time will tell just how long it lasts depends on the vibration. My gestamation is about 3-4 weeks. Better luck next time reeeeeeee LOL

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Ovington says:

    I'm got that same Maglite series in my Tundra..All 3 sizes..LOL

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

    The fuel sender in the tank is simply a variable resistor while the gauge reads the resistance, an ohm meter. On the bolts: That looks like a Saginaw pump so it would likely be metric. The engine is the old AMC I-6, a very reliable engine and probably uses English measure (what everyone calls american) bolts. That's the way it is on most of the Chrysler products that I work on.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ralph says:

    I know you won't answer my question. But why doesn't your shop have bolts and nuts, and fasteners?.
    I have never worked in a shop that didn't. It must be a real pain in the ass.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Todd Andrews says:

    A mechanic without thread gauges and tap and die set to figure out bolt and thread? Come on Ray you're better than that. 😉

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bandit Designs says:

    Hey the Jeep tipping problem was in the 80s not the 90s I’ve owned a lot of them. It started with the Suzuki Samurai in the 80s. It was built narrower than the CJ or the YJ which made them very tippy. The Jeeps were only tippy if you were driving into a tight corner way to fast, but vans were just as bad if not worse.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Howard Day says:

    I own this exact jeep. I could have told ya lol. Bolts are famous for breaking off in block, you tried hard on this one to help that happen. I suggest at least use anti seize when bolting to the block. On my 88yj when I accelerated it shifted left also, it was the brakes.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Myers says:

    Beard looks good Ray 😄👍

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Deitch says:

    That's why people bought 2 million+ XJs.

    Roof and a full cabin, big +1. And AC.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james robison says:

    what about the motor mount need to see that fixed too BAYTOWN TEXAS

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MyMyco Journey says:

    I've usually got your back, but I'm not so sure here lol! You should have bought a piece of all thread and just cut it to length, and used a nut on the outside end.

    Granted, I haven't watched the whole video yet, to see if you're trolling, but I think you had a better option than welding two bolts together.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gypsy Dildo punks says:

    Is that rack and peanut steering?

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Galaphile High Druid says:

    Super easy way would be to buy a long piece of all thread and just cut the length you need. Then save the leftover length for future jobs.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars V. Gonzalez says:

    What happened to to motor mount replacement ?

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars detuskified_walrus says:

    Shaft lengthening procedure complete 🙂
