(upbeat music) (old-time music) – [David]Okay, stuff’s going to happen. Last night stuff happened. I started by gutting all the wiring out from under the engine compartment. I gutted every scrap of wire
out from underneath the dash, and then I cleaned up everything and actually spray painted
it which was pretty good. I also got some fiddling
around on the engine putting some more accessories on the front and all that stuff. But this morning, the big
challenge was going to be the fly wheel. This is our brand new
blue print engine 3D3, and it’s got what’s called
a one-piece rear main seal. When they went to this,
in what, 1985 I think, something like that, they changed the design of
the back of the crank shaft which meant that they also
needed to change the balance. And so that means that it also
takes a different fly wheel which was the problem, and I panic-ordered a bunch
of fly wheels last night and ended up getting,
actually, the right one. And here it is right here. The pattern is going to be different here whether it’s one-piece or a two-piece, but also, it takes a special,
extra bolt on weight. So, I ordered that
separate McCloud package of weights on here, and I’m going through their hieroglyphics, trying to figure out which
weight goes in what bolt holes, so that we can slam this
on the back of the engine and then get this thing into the jeep. (dinging) – [Steve]It’s time to put in the pilot bushing. That’s this little bushing
that supports the input shaft of the transmission. Now, I made a simple tool just using a bolt, a nut, a washer, and then I used tape to shim it out so that it’s a pretty good fit. So, I’m going to line this
up at the back of the crank and hopefully a couple of
mallet strikes (clanking), and I’m done. I think that’s good (clanking). – Let’s see. – Oh man, that’s excellent. Let’s put the clutch on. (upbeat music) (croaking) – [David Freiburger]I am going to fix this crack
in the frame right here. First, I went in and cleaned
all the paint off of it. Next, I’m going to find
the very end of this crack, and I’m going to drill a hole
right where the crack ends. That will tend to help
the crack stop continuing. And then, I’m going to
take the carbide bit, and I’m going to grind a
little bit of a V in the crack where it’s not actually separated, so that I’ve got some welding surface. And then I’m going to burger
weld the thing to death, and it’ll look terrible, but it’ll be way more
functional than it is right now. Okay, Fred’s calling me. Apparently, he’s going
to like FaceTime us. – [Steve]Really, FaceTime?
– [David]It’s Fred and Dave. – [Fred Williams]Hey guys!
– [David Freiburger]Oh, we’re supposed to go sideways. I didn’t know that was a thing. – Uh. -[Fred Williams] How’s your jeep project? – [David Freibuger]It looks like this. -[Steve Dulcich]It was a perfectly running
vehicle when we started. – [Dave Chappelle]Ah, it looks good. – [David Freiburger]Yeah, it ran and drove great. It had SM420. It had like everything
that you would see in 1985 on the Rubicon Trail. How about you? – [Fred Williams]We have like three different Chevy performance crate engines that we’re tryna pick from. And then we have like, some super, it’s about a 12,000 horsepower equipped transmission that
we’re probably going to run. – [Dave Chappelle]We pulled this decoy jeep into the shop, so that you wouldn’t see how
far ahead we are, actually. – [David Freiburger]I see not stock flat thunder frame. – [Dave Chappelle]What are you talking about? – [Fred Williams]What, what, what, there’s
nothing to see there (whistles). (laughing) Are you ready to play
in the rain and the mud? – [David Freiburger]I am glad that we
have rain and mud, yes. – [Dave Chappelle]Good.
– [Fred Williams]Good. -[Dave Chappelle]We are too. -[Steve Dulcich]Okay, let me just, let me just
put it to you straight, Dave. Prepare for the worst, (laughing) because we are gunning for you, bro. -[Dave Chappelle]You’re gunning, you’re coming
with your guns blazing. – [Steve]We mean business, pal. – [David Freiburger]Dulcich woke up with
attitude the other morning. I told him this was all for fun. He didn’t believe me. – [Steve Dulcich]We mean business. – [Fred Williams]We’ll see you guys in
the mudbog, ‘Dul-burger’. -[David Freibuger] Not if we see you first. – [Dave Chappelle]Yeah.
– [Fred Williams]Yeah. – [Dave Chappelle]Yeah, jeep guys. -[Fred Williams] Yeah. You’re going down. Oop, battery’s almost dead. – [Dave Chappelle]Yeah we gotta go.
– [David Freiburger]Okay, bye. -[Fred Williams]Okay, bye. (laughing) – [Steve]Man, we’ve got to beat
those guys or we might lose the shop.
– [David Freibuger]Well, not that you told them that we’re winning. – [Steve]We might lose the shop. – [David](chuckles) Oh, that’s right. We’re a full day behind right now. – Oh, I know, yeah. -[Steve]I realize that. (calm music) (upbeat music) – [David]Are you ready to hack, Steve? – [Steve]I am prepared. You want to buck it up from the inside? – Oh yeah. I can buck. (revving) One down. (revving) Okay, ready to install. (upbeat music) – Do you see where the steering chap is on this operator? – Yeah, get a saws on and cut this out. Rig it right there. Fsh, done. (revving) – Now, the transmission
needs to come down. – Okay, so, we are lightly
rested on the ears now. – Yeah.
– And this transmission needs to be pushed towards
the passenger side. So, I’m going to attempt to do that, okay. – Mhm. – Oh, there we go. Ah man. Okay. (upbeat music)
