    So then you righteously utilized the “ time honored so there you are and there you go “

    That 3.8 v6 had a timing cover gaskets recall back in the early 2000’s late 90’s. I did tons of them when I was a stealership tech.

    I think it is poor design from the start. I just looked at a Jeep and a VW in my garage, and their Ball-Joints are pressed into metal that is 1 inch thick. The mustang uses pressed sheet steel about 1/4 inch thick, most likely for lightness, but how do they hope the ball-joint will stay in place, especially with the sort of cornering forces a sports car puts on the steering.

    Ray. You know people are stupid. Great job! I've welded a times, you did a great bead. Love ya.

    internet trolls .. gotta love keyboard surfers .. probably dont even own a flat head.. keep up the great videos

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Anderson says:

    Screw the haters ray. Good job. Doing what you have to do with full knowledge of the customer and no compromise on safety. Best possible outcome without replacing the control arms.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charlie Lambert says:

    Dude not that you need to justify to anybody but not a damn thing well wrong with putting a little weld on a ball joint

    Don't worry about people not liking certain things you do. Youtube is full of 'know it alls' who where that one person in highschool everyone hated correcting the teacher. You had a valid reason for what you did. Most of these people are Arts major with no real pratical engineering/work/etc experience that don't understand certain cases with certain limits require a 'non-book' task to be done. That just proves of those people commenting they not are professionals in mechanical work/engineer/etc. This is a good learning opp for you, engineers sometimes have to do something dumb that mechs don't like and think they were dumb for but don't understand they were 'forced' to do it X way because there higherups wanted X part used instead of a new custom part or similar reasons.

    I came to the comments looking for answers I found two political partys with both opposing answers as usual in life.
    1. Ball joints grease?
    its good
    its bad
    Do you have the concrete facts on the heat transfer rate through the materials during the welding and the failure temperature of the ball joint assembly?
    2. Welds?
    Its good
    Its bad
    Have you strength tested rays welds to know the breaking point through compression and rarefaction?
    3. Accepting customer request to keep lower arm and use weld.
    Its good
    Its bad
    Are you a lawyer that knows this will not stand in favour of rays shop in court?

    I'm sure there is the right people in here to answer these questions for those who are interested, the problem is theres too many dingbats talking when they should be listening as is all to common in society nowadays. Rant over I think I will just disable comments now Haha

    BuT tHe BaLlJoInTs ArE nOt InStAlLeD pRoPeRlY! Pfft, you gotta do what you gotta do. It’s fixed and you had approval of the owner. I did the same with the balljoints in my truck. Great job Ray.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Mr. Jacobs says:

    It's just a tack you armchair mechanic trolls

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Demedeiros says:

    I saw the video where you worked on that 'stang; I didn't feel anything wrong in your thinking then, and this video proves you up. Good work. Peace, man.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pete Laframboise says:

    i had to do that with an old 1980 mercedes because of the same reason ball joint holes were worn out… i had the owners permission. knuckles were unavail.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LiquidJD says:

    Reminds me when I asked my mechanic to tack my header bolts in place, as they were loosening off every week.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steamy1225 says:

    Why don't you pressurize the system and find out where it really leaks ?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Zendejas says:

    Looks like an old school bush type fix when a customer is not made of gold. It works just fine!!!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kyle Criscuolo says:

    Welding ball joints is expected and a common practice on the 2wd 1989-93 dodge diesels upper control arms

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars EvilJ069 says:

    Fagomatic sports cars should be illegal

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rene Caballero says:

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars garry davis says:

    As a airline engineer everything you have done ✅ definitely makes good sense as far as your doubting public if they had ears and brain cells they would not need open their cake holes nicely done geezer respect ✊ west London geezer 🇬🇧

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rawWwRrr says:

    I was questioning the practice of welding the ball joints, but after seeing some clear shots of the condition of the sockets in the arms it was obvious that there was a decision made that took into account the overall cost of replacing those arms. In part 1, you said you got the approval to spot weld them in. As far as I'm concerned, that was the end of the debate about how to continue proceeding with the repair.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R Guy says:

    I understood what you did and why.. This was an appropriate repair for the condition of Ford's better idea. No worries!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BossBoys 5963 says:

    Nice sloppy clean-up job on grease.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justa 4banger says:

    It's a v6. Nobody should care. Welder up bud 🤘

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt Roach says:

    Must be a member of the Salty Army!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bigger behind the trigger says:

    You welded it? Why you could have just used duct tape and some elbow grease.🤣 I love the stupid comments. I was just kidding you did a great job. Wrench on good Sir.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tiax says:

    Man that dinging is annoying. How the hell do Americans tolerate that shit? It's so obnoxious.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vendetta Hobbies says:

    Sometimes what has to be done has to be done.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrOnemanop says:

    Unusual/unorthodox? Yes. Effective? Check! Do I wish I had you working on my vehicles? Absolutely!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bighappy says:

    the rust stain is back!!!!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Hemphill says:

    You gotta learn to stop feeding the trolls. Don't make a video in their honour. They're living rent-free in your head, friend. Nobody but you ever sees those comments; they fall to the bottom hella-fast.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars george stone says:

    Weld those stinken Ball joint's. Don't hurt a thang!!!! LoL 😂

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Wallace says:

    Ray you definitely are one of a kind, totally respect you as a honest very knowledgeable mechanic!!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1987 mercury says:

    I have had dodge pickups where the thread-in joints back out due to the threads being galled, missing, etc. I had them welded up and they stayed for many years after, never cracked. I did have 1 control arm rust through though but that was unrelated to the joints. you did a fantastic job and it looks great.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rustypotatos says:

    not sure why u didnt just weld the block… changing the gasket is way too time consuming

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars terry harvey says:

    I don't weld ball joints because the next guy will have to replace control arm. Well, DUH, that's a given.If no oversize joint ava, no time, customer has no money for arm or arm not ava. then weld them puppies, with a note on RO stating replacement of arms will have to be done next time. And since the joints were not sloppy loose, they just need to be stopped from rotating and/or moving up and down. Sometimes you just gotta DO IT. I'VE GOT NO PROBLEM WITH THAT REPAIR.
