    I agree w your bearing being greased. Yes I pack it as they deserve every chance at living a productive life. Bravo, like your stuff.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark M says:

    The homage to Eric @ SMA was nice. Probably why YouTube recommended your channel to me. Enjoy all the commentary and the detail.

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

    Why did you install the bearings before cleaning the backing plate and components.. isn't there a possibility of contaminating the bearings?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Murray says:

    Ray what tonage is the press you are using? 30 ton? Also Allen keep the faith bud. I read your comment and it hit me hard.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew says:

    "C-clip goes like so" — might want to mention that one side is chamfered.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Porter says:

    Also do you think there is a fella out there named Phil plug? I'm sure there is.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ben Porter says:

    If you start talking about bbq then there will be trouble lol

    I didn't know you had haters and trolls. That being said everything you do is WRONG n not right 😆

    Bleeder Gravity!!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Wilcox says:

    Ray, I worked at a Chevy dealership for about 6 years. Just thought I’d give you a quick fast and easy tip. The next time you pull a c clip axle out, stop at the end of the axle and use the button on the end of the axle to hook behind the seal and pop it out with the axle. Axle and seal in one move.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Schlax says:

    Love the content! Could do without the annoying sound effects, yes the phone will ring. No need to mock it. So annoying!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Smyth says:

    I've replaced a lot of axel seals over the years. One car owner stood over me and screamed at me when I went to grease the seal before installing the axel to "not grease them as it will contaminate the 90 weight axel oil". I told him it wouldn't but said if I did, he wouldn't pay me. I had him sign a piece of paper that he didn't want grease on the seal and I wouldn't warranty the work without greasing the seal. When he came back 2 weeks later with a new leak, I told him he had to pay for the re-work and I would grease the seal before installing the axel or take it somewhere else. He paid in advance, I greased the seal and the car ran the next 5 years without a problem until he finally traded it in on something new.
    He still wanted to argue about the grease and I told him that little wouldn't hurt anything and protected the seal until the oil got out there. According to him, some old guy that did their family car work told him it would contaminate the axel oil. Bull, and he was happy after the redo. I was also happy to charge him twice for the same job.

    I’ve always used an acorn nut put on backwards and used my air gun.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Porter says:

    Awesome intro man.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thanos P. says:

    I enjoyed watching you replace these drumbrakes more than I did most netflix movies.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1soupasaurus says:

    Wow, I've got to say, I loved that intro. Looked really good with that filter.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 2pugman says:

    As a teenager, I thought nothing of pulling the rear or replacing a broken axel from drag racing. I must have been nuts !

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Patrick says:

    Get a piece of fuel hose and slide it on the cap then put the other end in the diff. It'll keep it from getting as messy

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Herberg says:

    That looks like an Eaton differential.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Onaopemipo Odetunde says:

    "That came out wrong didn't it"… Dude, almost everything you say comes out wrong🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Dimwitt Flathead says:

    Oh yeah, I have a good suggestion for you about that brake line that connects to brake cylinder. Take a GOOD socket and use a green cut off wheel to cut out enough of the socket that let's it go around the nut. Maybe a quarter inch or whatever. You can also weld it to a wrench or other handle for ease of use.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Dimwitt Flathead says:

    Why are you using pliers instead of the brake clip tool? The tool makes it go much faster.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Scaillet says:

    As an interest how much side force is exerted on those c clips during acceleration and or turning as it seems very precarious that that is all that is holding the half shaft in ,so basically how much side force can they take or more precisely how much side force is exerted on this componen.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John McBride says:

    Is that a stock rear end ? It looks new to me or shiny”er” than I expected just curious

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars raymond rodriguez says:

    Hey there Ray my names Ray, love ya videos I learn so much and absolutely love the doodododoodoo when the phone rings lol random but just gotta put that out there. 💪🏾🤙🏾

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Johansson says:

    Hey Ray what about packing the bearings?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars beernutsonline says:

    Loved the Crocodile Dundee reference, Ray.. :p

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Turney297 says:

    That is officially the cleanest differential in the county, I'm also amazed at how easy you made those drum brakes look

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt says:

    what knife is that. looks like a nice little shop knife.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Milwaukee Joe says:

    Ray has THE best work approved ways of saying "i dont give a shit" to his co-workers.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Smith says:

    If you have to explain what caulking a diff cover means, you must have some SERIOUS NARCISSISTIC ASSHOLES commenting on your repairs. I feel sorry for people like that because it must be pure hell living in their head. Keep up the good work, the intelligent amongst us understand you.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rohanswe says:

    I love the smell of Break Cleaner in the morning xD

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    buy a pump to not waste the rear end oil.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Isaacs says:

    I just wanna know what gnarly knife you have? Keep up the good work, i learn a lot from your videos!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars max packer says:

    thats not a knife

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pwapwap says:

    The way you finger the lube into those holes… 😂

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Green says:

    Awesome Video. Thanks.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vogg 23 says:

    Tip for when you change a brake cylinder or a caliper hold down the brake pedal it won’t leak and air won’t enter the line

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars frostybandit1 says:

    getting fancy with them intro's

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dos gos says:

    Crystal clear explanation of what was happening with the axle and bearings.
