    You need to start grinding paint off of the surfaces you're welding. Your welds will penatrate and look better.

    As a mechanic, dealing with broken bolts was the most challenging task. Always felt good to get beyond that.

    whenever you plan to loosen old rusted bolts like on the roller...spray them well with Liquid Wrench ahead of time. it will make the job easier and prevent broken off bolts. Did you spray lube into that roller?

    The gasket you putIn the exhaust has not fixed the problem Andrew you can really hear it on the video and the audio really brings it out loud like so you got something else going on right there to turbo yet

    You need to weld both sides of that bracket to the muffler and just unbolt the whole knuckle flange together

    Andrew you are a gifted guy. But you didn't sit on your ass to get there. As anything in life you have to work for it. That one day you decided to video what you do. And look how far you have come. And equipment and more equipment. Its Always great to have the right tool for the right job. Keep at it my friend. PS. What was the final verdict on the roller? Maybe pressed it on to far?

    My starter was like that too, needed the love tap. It ended up being the brush springs were rusted out, one could no longer push the brushes onto the commutator. I made one out of some pallet strapping steel band.

    Greetings: From an ex LI NYker. Now LA resident, it is the better cold I escaped from. As a retired maintenance. engr. I appreciate someone doing their own repairs when practical and with all the parts and tools at your disposal. Then I get to watch you play with the big-boy Tonka toys. I have not determined if you are in the Catskill or the Adirondack (I used to be a Boy Scout camper in the Livingston Manor area. The hiking and camp food are missing perks. Ely & Cody are very cool. (Are those tumors on Ely`s hindquarters - hopefully you watch out for him?) Both dogs seem to know when to back away from danger. Your work garage seems kinda comfy, but you don`t tell much about your personal situation; okay by me. Hope the Covid-19 has passed you by, I got my vaccine. Thank you for including us on your daily errands and very good camera positioning. I like to watch the flapper atop the exhaust pipe.
