    I saw a video you did about yourself. You said you have 4 sons which surprised me. I thought maybe Lizzy you was your daughter although she does call you Matt. Is she related to you?

    Hi Matts, I have not seen your videos for a long time, as always you offering good stories in your work ..... I have seen here some changes in the banana, I wonder if the issue of purging the radiator system is adequate, since There is a hose that is on the radiator and that can generate an aure bubble not very good for the system, it is visible that the area is difficult, but another route for the hose may be a good idea .... Greetings to all.

    Lizzy missed the opportunity to say the fan really sucks haha

    Just curious, who is Ed is he one of you folks’s dad? Slowly I figured out who your family is, your sons, your wife at first I thought Lizzie was your daughter. I am new to your station so I kind of had to figure out by process of elimination.

    Happy birthday Ed! We can all strive to be as active as you at 84. God Bless you and the crew.

    U guys have so much Random shit why u have a concrete cutting blade For a slab saw/wallsaw?

  • OcRefrigeration , Hvac & Electrical Video's.

    Good Video ! At Least now it looks like u have some decent airflow through the radiator at idle. 1) Yea, optimumly - the Fan blade should only pertrude into the shroud a Half Blades width. ie: rear shroud edge should line up with center line of Fan Blade. That way it has suction effect & can also Discharge the Heat removed elsewhere. 2) 1" Clearance around fan blade edge is Perfect. 👍 1-2" is Good. 3) Looks good ! Make Sure Heat Removed can Get out now too.

    holy cow! what size are those tires?

  • TheChillBison

    Did you use lock nuts or threadlocker on those shroud bolts? Probably not something you want to come loose, fall off, and have that million-cfu fan choppin' up your shroud.

  • MostlymoparIH

    Wow Ed. You've kept yourself in good shape. Happy Ed's Miracle Day.

    My buddy needed help cutting a body for bigger tires. I put on my safety glasses and he called me a big pussy. 20 minutes later, he got a piece of metal in his eye. LUCKILY I had a badass little magnet in my truck and before we went to the hospital, I snagged that little piece out and saved a trip to the hospital. Mike now wears safety glasses when grinding and cutting or doing anything under the Mudbitch.

    Idaho Falls is an *easy* drive. Hurricane and Idaho Falls are both on I-15. Just be sure you time it so you go through Salt Lake City NOT at Rush-Hour. I have done this drive and it is a lovely trip. Takes my 7 hours.

    Maybe put some of that rubber trim around the part that covers the fan to protect fingers from being sliced. Nice looking bumper!

    lots of welding on a car with a modern EMS computer, how do you guarantee protect it from getting fried?

    Hi From the UK. I live in the crowded south of England, not much chance for off roading so I don't think I will be needing your services anytime soon but I love you guys and love your channel. You are living the best life and helping people when they need you, it is great to see. It reminds me of the time in 1981 when I spent two years travelling the US in my '67 F250 with a cabover camper.. I drove on to Pismo Beach and had a great day on one of those Honda three wheel ATCs...that was fun. Got my two wheel drive F250 stuck in the sand though and this recovery guy turned up and pulled me out...he's probably Ed's age now! Keep the videos coming, I must visit when I'm next in the US, I believe Utah is the one contiguous state I have never been to.
