    Hey next time you have to do this on a Honda /Acura remove the heat shield and the converter come right out. At least that worked for me

    You are not a welder, but that machine is.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tunsafun McHaggis says:

    grinder and paint, make me the welder I aint

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert S says:

    You should consider to use some copper grease on rusted overheated nuts and bolts.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Curt Buttrum says:

    If only you had the torch adjusted properly!!!

    “I am not a welder.”
    We know and love you anyway Ray.

    there was definitely a "That's what she said" moment there.

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

    Great Video..

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars General George S. Patton Jr. says:

    Love your videos man, that's was a pain in the @ss to get that job done

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars eric kestner says:

    That is why I speak American, English is for them Brits

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Gibson says:

    If you put a brass rod in the tube i will help and the steel will not stick to it . makes a smooth weld inside.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Grosom31 , says:

    Ray I am sorry to have to tell you this, but I fear your vice may be displaying certain deficiencies!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B bustin says:

    I have an old 02 Tahoe and decided my high miles and poor mpg had a set of worn o2 and cats. No engine codes no dtc. When I had them removed one cat which rattled a little … had very little honeycomb left. in fact the guy said if I let it go it would prob break up and clog my muffler… never could quite figure why I always passed a smog test. I did notice my performance and power retuned.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Plod says:

    I still remember the old days when you could climb into the engine compartment to get access to various items 😉😊

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Grant McInnes says:

    You got the skills Ray. Now you can come to Michigan and do this every day.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carl ODonnell says:

    somtimes you can't win for loosing !

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JimAirborne25 says:

    You know what they say about $3 304’s… But, that was some nice MIG work to fix your mistake! Likely, the warp in the pipe came from the heat applied in unusual fashion. I’d call you on the bad grammar if I didn’t realize that it was intentional. And, whoever called you on the “arrogance” for wasting a gallon of coolant? Yeah… they probably never ever made a mistake, right?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dee Loc says:

    You never showed inside of the old cat… how were you for sure at the beginning it was the cat and not one of the sensors?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Victor Santamaria says:

    I work at a dealership… The only thing you should be slammed with is making me think i know what the hell I'm talking about.. i absolutely love a mechanics/techs expertise… You and the ones like you, are the shit

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Ford says:

    I'm a welding instructor in North Carolina, not bad for a rookie. I give you an A+.

    Rust belt problem solver is the mighty tortch

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Weber says:

    My nuts stole up once. I went to the Doctor.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Hall says:

    If every mechanic was like RAY no one would be broke down or paying out the ass for lil or nothing. My second most hated thing to do is take my car to a mechanic shop. My first biggest fear is the court house.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Heck says:

    Here's to You mr. auto shop mechanic!

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Glenn Bonadio says:

    You did a good job of welding,….

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Geoff Houlahan says:

    Every good mechanic has to have an ego. I'm always telling my boss I'm a genius

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Pedroza says:

    Might as well take the engine out

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars geo miller says:

    In the past, I have just used a Dremel with cut off wheel to split the nut when it could be reached on those destroyed rusted nuts. Works fast.

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

    Just watching your buddy.. He told your story.. UR great guy

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KamsWarNPeace says:

    LOL Torch next to flaming fluids lol Sounds like a good time

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars woodworker Royer says:

    Have you ever tried to use Evaporust gel on rusted bolts like that? Seems like it might work well in that application, but it might take too long to…

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Ortmeier says:

    I know that pain. Lol. Converters and those tubes are a stanles mix of metal I was told. Thats why their so miserable to weld.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Rothstein says:

    Pro tip for ya, insert a price of copper or aluminum sleeve inside as a backer, it will help you build up a cover weld without worrying about burning thru. Then just pull the sleeve out and grind the outside, it won't stick to either material.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RibbonKyle says:

    Next time make a sleeve to go on the outside& then weld.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Baker says:

    When there's light at the end of the tunnel…ORDER MORE TUNNEL. 🙂

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GARY OSBORNE says:

    Ray seems to really love his job and has fun making his videos. Life is good when you love what you do all day.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mysteπy ∅il says:

    I truly do enjoy seeing any welding projects. I have never had any training, aside from assisting my Dad, who was a professional welder years ago.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E-Nonymouse says:

    Disgruntled significant other 'There's nothing left of these nuts'.
    Nice recovery on the EGR tube btw.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Norbert Futo says:

    Why do not you use anti seize grease on the bolts when you reinstall them?

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DANX says:

    Level Up!! Welding Experience increased by 10!! (What's your opinion on "Nut Splitters?)

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alex Mage says:

    Great video Ray.
