New “Wife unit” T-Shirts & Designs for the Season!

Customer States: Engine barely runs and has a severe lack of power. It also has the occasional no start or long cranking before it starts. So far I’ve found vacuum leaks, clogged ports, antifreeze leaks from the water pump and the electric fan is damaged. I had the fuel pump, filter, spark plugs, ignition wires, and a distributor cap and rotor. It also has a new coolant temp sensor, O2 sensor, MAP, intake temp, IAC and throttle position sensor replaced. The ECM / PCM has been replaced too. See part one.

Apparently you don’t have a freezer there !

Charles Teply says:

What about the limited slip modifier lube additive? Most clutch type limmited slip units require that additive. Or is those Eaton units different? If not the clutches burn out by slipping.

Me and my dirty mind

TheHoneyBadger says:

I'm really not impressed with that snap-in fill cap. If that's the best Jeep(Dana) can do, I'll pass on that particular equipment.

David g-mail says:

At 6:37 you can see the bolts being put in the big holes, and not torqued? This rear won't last long when these come loose, not very good. Like not changing the freeze plugs on the back of the engine when the bell housing was off.

glad to see greasy bearings.lube it or loose it.

47:20 Pumping too fast and lost control of the hose. If I had a nickel every time that happened…..

Steven Hoffmann says:

I'm just curious Ray. Other than the 2 new diffs, who bought all the parts for project jeep? I know if you purchased them for now the owner of said jeep will pay. But did jeep owner bring you parts as you progressed?

Space Cowboy says:

There's an even easier and cleaner way to fill a differential with oil that you overlooked. You put the necessary amount of oil into 1 or 2 plastic zipper bags, place the bags in the cover pan and quickly put the cover in place so the bags fit inside without sticking out. When you manually turn the pinion, the bags tear open, spilling the oil out inside the diff and lubricate the gears. And then you're done. There's no cleanup afterward. The bags get ground up and mix into the oil and there isn't any spillage on the floor to take care of later. And the best part: you can start drinking the beer sooner

Tim farrer says:

Been waiting for this one.

Mario Lavoie says:

Happy new year Raiman! Thanks for the good content keep it up! Love it when your funny!

How come nothing goes back together like that for me ? Ray might the Midas touch .

David Utidjian says:

Reeeeee! one thing… according to the Eaton Differentials Owners Manual (page 35), when assembling the ring gear to the differential the small shank bolts are supposed to go in the smaller clearance holes of the ring gear. You put them all in the larger holes of both ring gears on both differentials.
Quote from page 35:
"Some Eaton performance differentials are
machined with multiple ring gear bolt patterns to
accommodate many models of factory ring gears
and unique aftermarket ring gears. Select the
pattern that offers the tightest fit to the fasteners
for the intended ring gear. An example would be
Dana 44 units. Ring gears exist with 3/8”, 7/16”, and
1/2” fasteners. Eaton performance differentials for
this application are typically machined with both
7/16” and 1/2” clearance holes. This allows the
fitment of the two smaller bolt sizes into the small
pattern, and the larger fasteners into the larger
hole pattern, thus ensuring sufficient material
under the bolt heads to allow proper tensioning of
the fastener. A close fit between the bolt and the
differential is not required if correct ring gear bolts
are used."

Glen J. Taylor says:

Hello Ray,
I know you couldn't possibly cover everything in every video but if you didn't know that much like washers, there are two sides to Snap Rings/C-Clips/Circlips and they should be installed in a particular manner.
Many people don't know this, even those who have been wrenching for decades.
One side is generally a bit more rough and has a sharp 90° edge and the other is smoother and has slightly rounded edges.
Your pliers should be inserted into the smooth/rounded side, leaving the other side to sit against the assembly.
I hope this helps you or anyone else who didn't know and thanks for sharing these videos with all of, I love em.
