    Takes way to long showing your struggles considering we have to sit thru commercials on this video… I had to tap out only 1/2 way thru and find a different video.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Duncan says:

    Eric the bearing on the kia said skf that means skefco we had a factory in south west Scotland which made them and the snap ring had cir on it which means circlip you are never to old to learn. 😂✔️

    Is there a part II to this video where we see the ballroom dancing?

    Hi, Mr. O. I hope you are still dancing. How are your sore feet? Thanks for sharing! Stay Healthy!

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Whiz says:

    Eric,
    You saved me with this video. I like your 10 lb slide hammer. Of course I had to get one. Thank you very much for being here.

    I always say "If juan can do it , I can do it." after watching Mr GO do it I can too. Thanks for dropping your tools loke I do.

    People who ask why do you spray it don’t live in cold temperatures

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gunner S says:

    There was a guy at college that walked barefoot year round. Called it "Earthing". And I do live near you so our winters are comparable

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars martin bridgland says:

    use the old race

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Vespo says:

    He do that and put candle wax on it

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr D says:

    So I have a stupid suggestion or a thought maybe if you backed the three lug nuts off about an eighth of an inch then maybe that would give you that eighth of an inch forward or inward movement as you strike the center pin but by keeping the lug nuts tight against the hub it gives you less of a inward force as you strike the center bolt.
    Just thinking

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Todd Conklin says:

    Maybe you should get a go pro that you can attach to the Bill of your hat 🤠

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Ash says:

    I know this is an old video, so I don't really expect a response. Just caught you saying you were gettting an intern for 3 weeks from the diesel tech program. Seems a little odd. Why didn't they get him an internship at your brother's shop, where they do diesels all day? ..and what would an intern expect to learn from a regular auto shop in only 3 weeks, other than perhaps how to change tires!! Love your videos.. and keep up the awesome work.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars claymore cluepile says:

    frankly, i like these axle bearing videos the best…they remind me of gladiatorial combat….no diagrams no wires no fuses no foam filled dash panels….just hammer on metal and sword on shield….real simple….all 100% technique, skill and strength….no computers or chimes bonging….just hammer blows and jackhammers against the best rusted metal mother earth can offer…

    it occurred to me that some new kind of tool is needed to get these stuck axles out of the bearing….and only 1 tool remains still unused ….shotgun shells…..just like they used to start old radial aircraft engines with a shotgun shell charge so also you could rig up a chamber and apply it closely to the axle end and shoot it loose with a 12 ga. shot shell blank cartridge

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LAWRENCE REDDICK says:

    How did the dancing work out? Always great videos.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Wesley says:

    Haven't you learned by now , the guy sitting at home who has never tried this repair knows so much more than you ………

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T Smith says:

    People dig you…some lonesome.

    I has the same problem with a sportage the rust on the right wheel was fixed and I needed use the force

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Bailey says:

    Yea we know about your jokes right ? What can a rooster do that a man cannot do ? Hummmm hummmmm he can eat with his pecker !

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dennis Nagy says:

    what i do on mine is remove the lugs, then using longer 1/2 bolts allowing to use my plate and arm

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joes Rust Shop says:

    Is this the same as a Hyundai Tucson ??

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddy Hawman says:

    Sorry mate got bored.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rob slipsky says:

    I love the cowbell. I am isolating with Covid (three vaccines) and I’m very happy for this entertainment. Thank you

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Leger says:

    Eye protection really needed it this time you were lucky 25 yrs of industrial safety experience here , i love your videos, don’t want you hurt or disabled. 👍

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Semi Interesting says:

    i actually found your channel a few years ago searching for how to deal with rust. despite being roughly the same latitude we see very little rust in portland, or area. i wanted to have a clue what to do if i ever encountered it after i saw my brother deal with an east coast car, as we usually call it, and got his southern mechanic, as i've heard y'all call it, butt handed to him… but i learned sooo very much more. thanks dude 🙂

    I can tell you why they don't do dirty dancing anymore, it's cause wives tend to go back to see the teacher for private lessons, LOL.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Graham Bird says:

    I feel sorry for you Guys because, when EV's come to take over, you have to take all kinds of Certifications to do what you're doing now efficiently ! ( But, one thing about this, you WILL make more money in a CLEANER environment ) !!!!
    (It's a 'Split Pin' > By the way ) *

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Troy Ball says:

    If you turned that control arm bolt any without trying to loosen the nut, you probably twisted the bolt or turned the bush ?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Troy Ball says:

    You never once put a ring spanner on the nut and tried to loosen it ? You only tried the bolt which you were bound to snap. If the bolt was seized in the bush it makes no sense not to try the nut ?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blue Ghost says:

    I want to know where did you get that bearing removal tool

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terry Hayward says:

    If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Myers says:

    GOOD JOB

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony thompson says:

    My impact monster is the IM510 snap on….breaks 10-20 truck studs.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Price says:

    Holy moly what a fight!!!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    Pressed in bearings should be illegal.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ExtremeRecluse says:

    I bought a 2007 Lexus ES350 from California. It will never see salt while a have it in Detroit. So easy to work on.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Stewart says:

    Don’t use an impact wrench on any type of puller. Ruined the threads

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Williams says:

    Are those drill bits you got your wifey halfway decent? I got the same exact set carrying and all. Haven't used it a whole lot. It was a gift. Everything is identical but it's labeled Sontax.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michael griner says:

    The axle shaft can move in a little bit

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Duncan says:

    Eric you could try welding a bead all the way around inside of bearing race where rollers run. i’ve found that this will shrink it. Goood job
