    You need to use some plumber’s soldering flux

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kuntal Ghosh says:

    3rd world mechanics are crying in the corner.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Urban says:

    Should have crimped first to give it a good mechanical connection and then soldered to improve electrical connection. They also sell terminals that are made to have lugs connected instead of jury rigging it with ones that aren't made for the job.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Sh331 says:

    Nobody else in your shop has a crimping tool that you could have borrowed?

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FLYBOY7898 says:

    After initially seeing the condition of those cables, thought maybe you might have to do a big 3 replacement. Looks like you got lucky. The corrosion didn't go that far back.

    Zen and the Art of Heat Shrinking

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrMit50101 says:

    Love your content it's really enjoyable and iv always seen the Karen's in the comments complain abt something or the other in every video but never seen you do anything I thought was "wrong" but the way you did the soldering in this yeah that was wrong I do understand it will work but In my opinion there's going to be pockets between the solder and ring terminal and very quickly corrosion will start forming in those pockets and cause issues had you crimped it first and added solder it would have filled in more evenly but soldering then crimping would break the solder up and cause pockets I may be wrong though

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Craig says:

    I would have spread the wires open and soaked in a solution of Baking soda and water, because the corrosion has traveled back into the wires. Plus, each wire should have a single Terminal just barely big enough to get a Single Wire into. then Heat Shrink it.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars brian watkins says:

    i'm positive that that is a good job the electrons will flow freely now

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Steed says:

    I mean propane would have been sufficient.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ole Jørgensen says:

    I would not pay for a repair like that☹️

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lester Fougere says:

    Wow,nice job Rainman. Often overlooked but so important,Lester from Canada

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

    Also, I would have used marine 1 bolt terminals…

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheOnespeedbiker says:

    Lead acid batteries only produce hydrogen gas when being charged; the reason they explode. I wouldn't recommend fire around a car battery regardless, but Ray was in no danger. If he was charging the battery at the same time, that would have been another story, but I'm sure he knew that after wrenching for 20 years. But I agree crimping after soldering seemed counter productive. A good (emphasis on good, not with vise grips) crimp is actually better than soldering because soldering can crack over time; best to do one or the other. Now make sure you overtightened the new clamps; the only way you know it's tightened enough is when the ends are smashed together.🙄 I think shrink wrap, along with zip ties and Velcro (and maybe brake cleaner) were gifts from aliens because they work too well to be invented by humans. Finally glad you stopped (or severely reduced) your use of the term mofo, as this is still technically a family channel.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars zipoleon16 says:

    I laid a trouble light next to a battery with the engine off and it blew, went up and put a big dent in hood. Also, my brother in law touched his metal watchband on the plus side and body to ground, the battery blew and blinded him for 2 days from the acid

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Harvey says:

    I own a 2000 Danger Ranger with a 3 liter, and this video hits home. Have a problem with corrosion on battery. It’s fixed now but at least I can see how you fixed it.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Klaus H. says:

    Isn't this your lunch steak knive???
    THX.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tsty5 says:

    That’s not how y flame solder. That’s electrical solder gun method. 😂

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Wat says:

    Don't you ever consider the explosive factor of the battery? That would freak me out torching right over the top of a battery. What's your opinion on the subject? I guess you answered my question later in the vid. You're a scary man. Hope you stay safe.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Simpson says:

    Oh Peter??

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Calculated Risk says:

    This is just me, but I always put dielectric grease in the connection before I heat shrink it. This helps guard against corrosion, but I can't knock your technique. It was awesome to watch.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thebanjoman1963 says:

    Dated a Girl some 30 years ago who's brother put in a new battery for her. He also stretched the terminals to where it wouldn't get tight. NO PROBLEM..He bent a penny and wedged it in between the terminal and the post, gouging the post and further ruining the clamps. Old Abe did the job proud.. 😀

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sophie Dolman says:

    How do you look at those wires at the beginning, and think, 'Yep, they're fine!!' Customers baffle me !! Xxxxxxx

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Simi says:

    Of all your videos I have watched this one is ridiculous. A torch to soldier and next to an unsealed battery? Unsafe too!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Smith says:

    That was my first time seeing Pete. I pictured a younger guy with glasses maybe… With that being said the best phone dooo duuu dooo award goes to Pete!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Forslund says:

    Doesn't the workshop sort Your trash? Metal, Card Board, Plastic and miscellaneous ?? Re-cycle (y)

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Warner says:

    Fire and battery fumes don't mix,don't ask me how I know lol

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phil Croxall says:

    I rarely comment, l watch frequently, but I have to say that that was a lousy fix !

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars xshanghu says:

    Good Job !!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars xshanghu says:

    Giving it the old Tanya Harding.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Krzysztof Knapik says:

    I don't expect you reply bat ok you are gas

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Krzysztof Knapik says:

    Bro i f…. love u more tururutey when phone rings and more CLICK

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Taylor says:

    With a much solder as you got in there, I don't think crimping was even necessary. In fact, that could have damage the solder.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Drew says:

    Why did you not clean the terminal lugs after soldering them to bring them back
    to how they were before soldering ?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Reske says:

    moderately++ hehehe

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Gunning says:

    if you are going to solder it hurts my brain when you do not use flux. ouch ouch ouch.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars spelunkerd says:

    A quick way to prove a bad ground wire, anywhere on its course, is to clamp a test light to bat neg post without disconnecting it, put the other test light clamp to engine anywhere. So the test light is measuring current from ground to ground! Crank the starter and watch the light. If the light glows, you've proven voltage drop somewhere in the ground wire. From there you can walk back and do the same test over shorter segments to localize the problem area. More fun than guessing.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FullMaxx1 says:

    Where is Peter from he sounds like a yankee

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Butler says:

    Hell Ray…. Let the Engine heat solder those terminals. 🤓 That should work! 👍 😜

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Butler says:

    Lmao!!! I can hear all the complaining going on about you using yer knife. 😂😂😂. Guess they didn’t notice that you didn’t cut through or cut any copper. 👀🧐. OH NOO!! Look at all the strands falling!!! 😩

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Samuel Wyatt says:

    Battery gases can sometimes be explosive

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Cleary says:

    What no Flukes on the copper for the solder to adhere to? Big mistake, down the road things will fall apart or corrosion will set in.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars david ball says:

    Nice job!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars steann1 says:

    Zinc fastener on copper
    .. plumbers nightmare..
    😳

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars steann1 says:

    Flames 🔥 and battery hydrogen…💥
    VA..VOOM

    I spoke too early… I should’ve watched all of the video first.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrSuprcharg says:

    Wtf. How much did that for customer have to pay for all of that nonsense? 🤣

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alexander Copeland says:

    New battery, not really those are rebuilt batteries. Only thing new about it is new to the vehicle.

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Radame Lopez says:

    When a is not at your disposal you don't have one

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike perez says:

    OK here's my two cents should've used flux and crimp it before you solder other than that I think you did a great job and went way out of your way 👍
