    "I gotta stop breaking stuff at some point." LOL, me just before I take something to a professional. It was cathartic seeing someone blow right past the point of no return and actually finish it. Usually I take my stuff to a shop, smh.

    Make some garage for all that equipment.


    Everything on big rigs and machinery requires big expensive tools. Some ordinary automobile tools will work, but they will show there limitations. It's a paradigm shift in scale. There are similarities between RVs and Commercial Trucks. Especially the braking systems. Servicing and repairing brakes on them is no joke! They have to control a lot of weight! RV owners and big rig operators do not have a choice and pay a premium for those repairs. Because your quality is what they depend on...and they are liable. Most automobile shops won't touch them. Because additional liability insurance, licenses, and certification are required. No big deal: just take the course, test, and pay the fee. THEN ....With a few specialized tools and, possibly, a two hoist lift, you can EARN A LOT OF MONEY! That's just the "price of rice". Maybe a cool gig in the winter months? for a herd of jet skiis and snowmobiles... and some Bling for yir dog... Just saying.

    Gud tip for siezed bolts is to get them red as close to where their threaded in then pour cold water on them. Water should boil thru the thread cleaning it out.

    When you heat a bolt. YOU GOTTA LET IT COOL! Its in a hole. it gets hot, it expands. the hole forces it to get longer not fatter. when bolt cools it shrinks. it is now longer and skinnier than it was before. rinse repeat once or twice. cool it with air or penetrating oil like pb blaster. THEN you loosen it up. itll come right out...or itll break. lol

    Dude youve got to get yourself a crimp on hose clamp set. For fixing air lines, ac hoses etc. super low profile. entire set with crimpers is like 25 bucks. Do It! That bulky mess on your air hose is dog poop. Crimp on clamp. heat shrink it or slide a piece of hose over it and voila no scratch on them perdy tractors. lmao.

  • Akotski1338

    33:55 so glad to see you wearing eye protection while changing that oil. Just a few days ago I was changing oil as well and it splashed right in my eye. I was lucky not to get blinded or something by that. Learned my lesson for sure

  • Akotski1338

    When this video came out I watched and the that same day I found an old abandoned cat that was way bigger than that one and it had the same exhaust setup which was pretty cool.

    i don't know was there a gasket between turbo flange and exhaust manifold ? maybe could have been little quieter because you added the silencer. I saw little smoke come out there that's why i wondered.

      The trick is to not use that thing. Other wise its going to break.


    That exhaust housing on that turbo is a strange design. I'm not familiar with dozens or whether that's a common design or not. It's like a press fit buts it's too loose to be a press fit. So what actually seals it. Does it only seal once it gets hot and then it locks in place permanently??

Who hasn't nearly torched their dozer with a spring leaf fire? Was wondering if a 6” extension would have been better than cutting the hood? Thanks for all your work

    Just a note, you should always heat around the bolt and keep the bolt as cool as possible, you want the steel that the bolt is screwed into to expand and the bolt to stay strong. Just an observation not a criticism.

    Andrew Camarata , that rock you dug out or a nicer one! You should have one engraved with your own company name and put it down by the road. 🧐 then you could offer them to other people too, engrave them and place them where they want them. Just a thought 💭 Gus !
