This 454 farm truck is worthless with a toothless ring gear. Starter cannot crank the engine to start the engine. This pickup has sat for a few months as changing a ring gear is not a simple job. But being winter we need a gas pickup to be functional as they are the best in the bitter cold.

  • If you ever have a issue with the 4wd not engaging due to the actuator or the switch on the transfer case, all you need is a 1” npt nipple, cap and a 6” or so long 1/2” bolt. Remove the actuator from the axle housing. Put the cap on the nipple, drill a 1/2” hole in the cap. Install that assembly in the axle. Put the bolt in the hole, while turning a front tire, push in on the bolt. You’ll feel the collar engage, weld the bolt in. All fixed. You still have 2wd despite what many will say. I’ve done this to 3 of my old farm trucks and have put 5k on the one including actual highway driving and speeds, no issues. Hopefully this will help you guys out in a pinch if you need it. Because you know it’ll decide to stop working on a Sunday afternoon right as or after the local parts store is closing.

  • Leg Arms and Nick you guys are so cool. Your videos are so informative and humorous at the same time. Nick reminds me of Mike Rowe on the Dirtiest Job show. Your videos are like eating a bag of Lays chips, you can't watch just one LOL. So glad i ran across your channel.

  • Why do you guys park your skid loader with the bucket up? I was always thought that was dangerous. I’ve noticed it in a few videos and am curious

  • I’ve done the same job laying on the ground a few times....since I don’t have leg arms the way I do it is pull the transfer case, lay it down then I use my leg-legs under the bell housing and arms under the back of the trans and slide it back and lay it on my chest, then wiggle out from under it.

  • Leg Arms !!! After watching your changing of the ring gear a couple weeks ago, I had a terrible sound in my bellhousing this week. My carpet cleaning van was in the storage unit (ten feet wide) and was no longer going to start with that grinding and screeching. Fortunately, it was just the cone of the starter broke in half. No, I have never seen that happen before. I wish I could post a picture of it. After market parts suck.

  • I did not know you had dyslexia... I think the clue comes in the fact you're a gifted mechanic though, often people with dyslexia or other things like that are strangely good at working out machinery. You're also quite an inspirational speaker.

  • You guys are awesome!! I seriously want to ride all the way to your farm, just so I could help with one, or more, of your projects! I've been turning wrenches since I was 14. That's almost 34 years of experience with everything from weed eaters, all the way up to and including the 8 wheel drive Hemmits when I was in the Army! I am currently working as a motorcycle mechanic, at Ray Ray's Cycle in Buhler KS for almost 2 years. I really appreciate the fact that you rebuild/restore and continue to use your equipment!! Have a blessed weekend. & Now onto your next videos. I've got to get caught back up!

  • Awesome! - I think you "could" put the ring gear in the oven at 450°F there should be enough expansion to slide on...but momma might not like the "Essence of Machine Oil" smell in the which case the torch is better, cuz if Momma ain't happy...NOBODY happy!

  • It's going to be a very different story trying to repair modern equipment. Got a loose wire? Tape it up and you're ready to go? Nope. Gotta wait for the dealer to turn up with their laptop... Your crop sitting out on the field, oh well. Farmers need to get the right to repair the electronic part of the tractor and start lobbying. I grew up on a farm and we fixed everything, including electronic problems because I was interested in electronics I learnt what was needed, saving thousands. I guess farmers these days prefer older equipment that can be worked on without the need for the dealer visit with a laptop. See this video
