    Ahhh percussive maintenance!

    Lol had to do the same thing with a 2002 expedition. Everyone said there's no way the hammer would work but had to more days of work till the weekend and she made it

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Eastmead says:

    I had 300,000+ miles on all original parts (other than tune up parts) on a 5.9L magnum, when I sold it.

    Good thing there is no such thing as electrons

    I feel that way about longevity of brake pads and rotors the original ones far superior

    Your A/C hoses look bad

    "My alternator wasn't nating, so I carried a hammer in the vehicle to repair it your honour. I have no idea how it became embedded in the testicles of that cyclist Sir" Sounds like a defence to me (ha ha)

    As regards not wanting to reset your clock after disconnecting your battery. I use a "battery saver" A simple 9 volt battery with 2 fly leads on crocodile clips. Keeps all my clocks and components memory's

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stan Washighski says:

    Ray it's never too late to figure out that one mustn't tighten any bolts without all being in place first, c'mon man

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stan Washighski says:

    Ice cold water will do the trick as well👍

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jered Scantlan says:

    Lol, linear impact driver.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kasual Skeptik says:

    The alternator power is based on a good connection with the ground of the chassis or bracket, right ?
    Why wouldn't you clean the contact points of the bolts to make sure you have a good ground ? Just asking…

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terry Nations says:

    I like to keep as many original parts on my 06 Chevy as I can. It still has the original alternator that has been rebuilt at a local shop, it has also been upgraded to 250amps. Had the original trans rebuilt at a local shop also.

    batteries? As in more than one? How many more do you have?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hippyhay1 says:

    Nice use of the "multi-angle swing press".

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Me Here says:

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ian Grice says:

    Nothing is built like it used to be, that's why China has a booming economy and everywhere else is in trouble.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ARednecksLife says:

    My father-in-law also a mechanic, never disconnect the battery when replacing a starters or alternators.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Naylor says:

    My mother and father in law carried an AA book of the road in their car. If it did not start they would beat the hell out of the starter motor. Worked every time 🤣. Don’t know if the book was used for its main purpose?.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ja Rack says:

    They don't make them like that use to. Why? Because of being able to lease them. Don't need to make them last. Just make them last 5 years for a lease duration.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ToeKnee2u says:

    Thats a nice crusty hose

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B9Bot 1 says:

    Rebuilt Alternators are basically money robbers. You buy one it works for maybe a year or two and then you have to do it all over. Frustrating.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R I says:

    I've never seen an alternator in such easy to replace place!! AND …If It returns to life with a well-applied-convincing-blow of a mallet, then the culprit are the carbons! (easy fix) OH!…and count me for the decals of "please! change me! (the hose)"

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Maclean says:

    Great video watching from Scotland

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars HolyDr1ver says:

    Nice to see mechanic being honest and showing faults on owned vehicle unlike scotty who says there's never faults with toyota.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jorge fernandez says:

    I just recently had to replace the alternator on my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It was the original one. It wasn't charging my battery like it should and the battery also wore down running on half a charge. Thank God the nator was on the top. Thanks for the video and you have a nice day too.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars FitChik Alina says:

    We have a small unit near me, family owned, that rebuilds alternators etc, better than factory. You need to remove the unit and get it to them for (Usually) next day collection.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hans C. Schellenberg says:

    That big alternator wire is hot right? Waiting for the big spark…

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

    The 'nator' second personality…'alter-nator'…:-)

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GGGeeerrryy says:

    is this video some kind of bug fixing? because it's been destroyed by insects.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Shutsa says:

    Thanks for another awesome video. 😀🇨🇦

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars saintedX says:

    Those headlights could use some restoration 😀

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E-hellephant says:

    got to make an investment on a good power tool for getting stuck in bolts to budge so i can put them back in properly when done. What kind of tool would be best? was thinking of a snap on Right impact but Im not at all knowledgable on this.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tris says:

    It always makes me giggle when your co workers start making the noises with you

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kieron Bower says:

    So you were using a 10mm spanner…. that makes the nut a 6mm nut

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mr hamburger says:

    Hammer mechanic

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fatcat Towing says:

    I wonder what a customer would think you beating on YOUR alt like that. "click" Great videos Ray!!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kurt B says:

    Why not rebuild your original?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim Sampson says:

    'Percussive maintenance' is a useful tool. Anyone can hit a piece of kit with a hammer but knowing where to hit it takes years of experience.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tuck Frudeau The Cowardly Soyboy Dictastor says:

    Is there a difference in quality between a refurbished and new alternator?

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Island boy says:

    Your buddy sounds like a dink. He must sign your check. I’ve worked with more guys like that shut up mind your business
