    At what point do you "re-engineer" the cooling system? I assume those lines are vapor lines to the back of the cylinder heads?
    I've just re-plumbed my transmission lines with AN fittings….

    'Give me back my socket', been there. Many times. LOL

    I've just used a few drops of engine oil off the dipstick to lube these sort of repairs. I love the bud light though.

    I didn't see this when it first came out, but I didn't realize that you should have titled this, devolved to the Red Green Show.
    But they never would have wasted beer as lubrication.

    Distilled water for cooling systems, not only can it take more heat without boiling, it staves off galvanic effect longer with the differential Metals in the cooling system and engine.
    I'd be tempted to plumb that with a 3/8 Hardline and short hose connections between them.
    You had an actual t-connection, that would have worked. I would have gotten them at least made in Black. That white plastic I'm surprised lasted anytime at all that's why it's a vacuum connector, not a coolant connector.

    Great job Ray,and the truck had a beer!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jeffery berry says:

    I value function over form every day of the week. Excellent recovery from a bad situation. And, I agree with others, only good use for Bud Light.

    They always said that if you checked out a mechanic’s vehicle it would be the most jury rigged. An electrician’s house would have the biggest rats nest of wiring.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Hummel says:

    Ok ray, DRINK THE BEER AND THEN SPIT TO LUBRICATE! Any good tech knows this!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars NotSoSneaky says:

    Ingenuity aka duct tape, cause duct tape fixes everything.

    Ray that looks my repair work!!
    What ever can go wrong does.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Hart says:

    Did u bypass the coolant line on throttle body . Is it just that a bypass or is it needed

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

    One wonders….has duct tape ever been used for ducts?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Smith says:

    A great Government Motors vehicle…..

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy says:

    Pretty cool ray

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Austen J says:

    "Reverse Click and Forward Click" comments went out of the window on a personal vehicle 'fix'.
    However, Ray keeps Calm and Carries On in a personal crisis with his 292K mileage clunker.
    This is not only a great post, it's an inspiration to all.

    When I instal a new hoseclamp, I always spray it with Finnegan's Waxoyl .

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M L says:

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Brumfield says:

    Good “ on the side of the highway” repair vid.😳

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 80s Glue Sniffer says:

    There was a new Y fitting in the box you opened. Looked almost identical to the one you broke. You're not alone not seeing something that's right in front of you. I do it all the time!

    Odd way to flush your cooling system

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steven Phillips says:

    You either edit a lot of have a inhuman amount of patience,,,, I would have to create silent movies.. because I just don't.. and aquired my language from the infantry and trucking..

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bryan Wilkens says:

    Good old 100 mile an hour tape.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars david watson says:

    You should try Silicone hose clamps. They are much better than these ones

    RAY LOVES HIS JOB- DO IT TWICE!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Hitchcock says:

    Bud Light and duct tape for the win!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1000km/week says:

    Needles today it must have been a long night for you with not much sleep for you to fix this for the next morning. 😮

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Seabert says:

    I was in the middle of no where and the nut to the wire on the starter to my APU came off. So I used a a zip tie. It worked and about 6 months later was at the shop getting its oil changed when the mechanic saw it and said what genius did this shit. I told him I forgot I had done it and it worked this long so yeah, proof of concept and thank you for the compliment.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Luther says:

    🤣 I can't believe you paid 500 plus for that Snap-On cordless ratchet kit. PS — engine heat kills those rubber hoses.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Hebert says:

    I love when people think buying a mechanics car is a good thing. I'm a mechanic myself an my ride is like this tahoe. I have a little rigging under the hood myself. The last thing I wanna do after work is fix my own car. But I bet with that motor that thing screams.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mammutrunner says:

    Terrible situation, especially with a child.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Ocklund says:

    Not having the rigth tool for the jobb is how we all non professionell operates

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger Smith says:

    Thought I saw a tee in the box, wouldn't that have worked as well as a y fitting?

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars marathonfreak67 says:

    I loved everything about this video!

    Cold air intake: Plumbing PVC
    Appropriate sized hose clamp: Duct tape mod
    Missing Y fitting: Masonry drill bit mod
    Lube: spare Bud Light
    Not touching it again for 2 years because it works: Priceless

    Now the next time a customer brings you a car with the zip tie mod or the 200 MPH tape mod, think back to this day. . . and remember, you call "this" ingenuity! Well done.
