    Covers cab of truck with welding jacket from weld spatter and sparks, slip tank with highly flammable/explosive fuel and fumes literally underneath the mount he’s welding on, no protection from the spatter and sparks hahaha Andrew my friend, you never cease to amaze me! God I love your videos! 😂🤣

          All the comments on the impact and spark plugs. Nothing about welding next to fuel tank. Just saying

                I think he has a lot of fun trolling the candy asses commenting on here. It’s his goddamed truck.

                  A trick a buddy showed me, is to spray an aerosol adhesive on one side is the gasket, then with it sticky you can place and push it down and it stays exactly where you put it. As well as making the holes line up nicely.

                      I was really looking forward to seeing you tackle that rotor cap and plug wires... i have a 98 dodge and have been procrastinated doing it myself...

                            One of the best things about Andrew's videos is you get to see the everyday, shit happens type of stuff that we all experience.

                              When welding on cars you are supposed to disconnect the battery i think the reason is it can mess with different electronic components not so much to protect the battery :)

                                @Andrew Camarata Power will always travel the shortest distance of course so were you ground your welder will have much to say i guess thats where it could go wrong

                                @Andrew Camarata Glad to hear so Andrew just something i heard when building taxi busses we didn't do much welding dough and i myself was not a welder but i know the welders did disconnect, this might have been something brought from older days when electric systems was much different from today regarding safety systems. Love your videos by the way you are a great inspiration.

                                      disappointed! maybe not changing one valve-cover gasket is ok? but no new air filter on a tune-up? then you skipped changing the wires and cap too. ive watched allot of your vids, and have come to expect better from you!

                                            that engine is pretty sturdy, i'd be more worried if he had some aluminum block engine or something.

                                              "The distributor cap and rotor are way in the back so I'm not even going to mess with it". LOL. I know the feeling. Have a 99 Ram 1500 with a 5.2

                                              Love the videos and learn a lot and really appreciate showing real life (like the cooling system still under pressure when the heater core hose was removed). In the spirit of learning/other ideas, here's my take on a couple of things:

                                              -Protecting from dirt getting into the engine internals. It just doesn't make sense to not be careful with regards to dirt when you were taking off the valve cover. Tipping it over while being right over the internals of the engine just seems like asking for trouble. The internals of the engine need to be clean and remain clean and when unfastening old rusted valve cover bolts and where valve cover side flanges capture tons of dirt, especially when they are leaking oil. ..nearly guaranteed to have dropped sand/dirt/gooey oil sludge in there. Fighting the injector wires and removing the gasket too, knocking into things probably causes some dropping of dirt in there too. Options to prevent this would be to loosen the valve cover bolts then compressed air all around that area.

                                              -Changing the plug wires. . .I found a quick way to check if they are "leaking" spark is to run the engine at night in a real dark area away from all light and (carefully) look under the hood. You'll see what looks like a laser light show if they are leaking. Easy and quick and is in keeping with Andrews "Don't touch it if it isn't broke" feelings.

                                                    Glad to see you not using those blue 3M POS crimp connectors for splicing. Never heard of a leaky valve cover causing spark plugs to fail so I leaned something new today. Also learned computer controlled battery chargers do not work so had better throw mine away after many years of reliable use.

You probably already know this when putting those spark plugs in or any fastener if you don't want to start them by hand try running the drill in reverse slowly first until you feel a click. Once you feel the click it means the start of the threads are lined up and you can run it in knowing its not cross threaded leaning this was a game changer for me. Think your at your best talking about trucks and telling story's wail driving those are always my favorite.

When you went for the start and got the 'click click,' that my friend is the story of my life👍
