    Awesome video

    FYI: Not necessary to shield our eyes on a video. The whitest light we see is a blank white screen – no injury to our eyes.

    The smoke being emitted is what I like to call healing smoke or shop incense.

    Like you I always use anti_seize on parts for the "the next guy"….wish others would do it for me once.

    My first time using never seize last year and I got it friggin everywhere and I have no idea how it happened

    YouTube is at it again. I watch this video before and hit the 👍 button. This video popped up again without the 👍 button count.

    Put the click on MAXIMUM! 2.5" x 3/4" rectangular tubing x 5 foot long … with a 36mm socket welded on one end: that's what I used to remove or torque the flywheel gland nut(factory specification was 235ft/lb)on my VW BUG. And the axle nut(218ft/lb.), which fastened the rear brake drum. Later on I modified a 3" long 3/4" drive extension to fit into the 36mm socket and protrude through the other side of the rectangular tube. It was welded in place. So I had a 5 foot long "wrench" that fit any 3/4" drive socket. It cost about $25 to make (1989). It can bust any nut!

    Im wondering, is P a person who is doing an internship at your shop? Whatever you caught him doing seems like something an intern or a new guy would do

    I’d like to put a wheel lug nut on to hold the rotor stationary.. makes installing the caliper much easier!!

    Upwind.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Winks the biker says:

    When cleaning up hardscale corrosion like that, I use a wire wheel or toilet bowl cleaner and a wire brush.
    Though it looked like your chisel worked well.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Sutton says:

    I had exactly the same problem when trying to change the bearings in my XK8. I have a 20 ton press but couldn't get enough heat because I don't have acetylene so I took the arm to the local Jag dealers and asked them to use plenty of heat and their 50 ton press. When I went back the next day they Manager called me into the workshop and the arm was still in the press with the bearing still in. I asked whether they had got it red hot but he said not as they didn't want to risk damaging the arm as they were no longer available. I pointed out that that car was unusable as it was and if the arm was damaged by the heat/pressure them so be it. That's a bridge I would have to cross if it happened. They then got it to red heat whilst I waited and it came free with a massive bang but was fine otherwise.
    By the way, I have used anti-seize on every stud, bolt and nut including the threaded part on every car, bike and truck for the last 55 years and have never regretted it for one second …. in fact, quite the opposite when I come to work on the same part a few years later.

    Man, you throw caution to the wind when you use a torch!

    There goes that bearing

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Inspection & Corrosion says:

    Great job

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J.C. Paul says:

    Someone help
    Me out. When you heat steel and let it cool, is it then smaller than it was before you heated it? Wouldn't it just shrink back to the same size?

    Blowtorch and pneumatic hammer, the two most used tools of Eric O at South Main.🤪

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Video Monkey says:

    Impact guns destroy Jaguar wheel nuts as Jag uses a stupid cover over the nuts. Why Who knows? But the result of the impact gun is the cover comes loose and fall off making the nut a different size and much harder to remove.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stephen Ford says:

    Love the 'protective rubber gloves' whilst using a torch … ! 🤣

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Broder Perdurabo says:

    The torch you are using, is for cutting 10-30 mm steel plates, use a velding head to the the gas mix.

    Your assumption is accurate I thought the video was awesome.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sfeddie1 says:

    In the electronics world, white thermal grease, affectionately called “Camel S**t”, does the same as you described happens with never seize. As soon as you open the jar or tube it seems to get on everything. You tell me. How does this stuff get on the back of your elbow, inside your ear, or behind your knee inside your pants!!!!!?

    Corrosion in NY (yawn)

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terry Lawrence says:

    :-))) If you want to freak out the basement "scientists" just quench the whole thing in water after it's good and hot! `In lawn mower repair, rule #1 is do not use a hammer on the main shaft to remove the flywheel by inertia. Even though it's in ever manual (When paper manuals existed)

    time to break out big nasty great videos ray

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Duhamel says:

    Was that a snow shovel?, in Florida?!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pat Tracy says:

    I would have tried a press or a puller before using a torch.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scale Model Productions says:

    Hey Where in Florida are you?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daryl Morgan says:

    Great video Ray. Keep them coming. From all your Aussie fans

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Alexander says:

    You cooked the bearing, it won't last very long.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Beyler says:

    First off, now you have a slight taste of what I get to deal with daily. Secondly why was that torch already set for oxy/acetylene mixture when you lit it? …Thats super unsafe. Lastly, gotta be careful using heat around euro (and some domestic) alloy knuckles, they tend to be alloyed with magnesium, and can result in a very hot uncontrollable fire that is hard to put out

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Montana Dirt Roads says:

    A rosebud would work a lot better for that, puts out way more heat and has more flow so you can run more on your gauges. And I would highly recommend not using a Bic lighter to light your torch! Strikers are about the same cost as a lighter anymore and a hell of a lot safer trust me oxyacetylene Burns hurt like hell. I am a structural welder by trade and you can put alot of heat quickly with a good rosebud tip, enough to camber structural steel and bridge girters

    which cars are worse to work on? Jaguars, or range rovers?
    I know a service department manager for a dealership that sells range rovers. I asked him how good are they. He laughed and said the mechanics love them. they are job security for the service department. Practically every one of the new ones sold end up being brought in on a flatbed at least once in the first year.. and I don’t know anyone that has ever owned a Jaguar.
    I almost bought one years ago. A friend of mine that ownd a car dealership took one on trade ..it was a Jaguar sedan. He called me and asked me if I wanted to buy it very cheap..He said it’s gorgeous, red leather interior, not a mark on it, we just can’t get the idle to come down below 4000 RPM..
    I told him, I’ll pass, I’m not that stupid yet

    Your oxyacetylene torch isn’t adjusted correctly. SMOKE WRENCH!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddie Patterson says:

    It took a lot of heat but it works every time. I not crazy about mixing metals like the car factory do because of this reason it’s a pain in the neck to take apart.
