I made this video two weeks after buying my first Chevy truck. Turns out this truck has more than a few issues but haven’t we all. Any help and advice is alway welcome. I’m not much for blogging but I do enjoy making the odd video so I will be filming my work including the mistakes. I normally make videos about electronics equipment, but I really just film what’s on the bench.

Thanks and regards Chris - Sheffield UK

Today I’m replacing the Axle oil seal on the Chevy 3600 truck. Part 1 of the video is removal and cleaning the hub.

Part 2 of the axle oil seal replacement. In this video I am adjusting the bearing preload. I found this job quite taxing, did I get it right. Please let me know.

Thanks Regards Chris

This week you can see the rear cross member this was previously blasted by the previous own and left in poor condition with almost no paint. I have painted the rear cross member with a two part epoxy. I am really happy with how this has turned out. In this episode I make a better job of correctly installing the wiring to the rear lights.

Please like or subcribe and leave comments as its all good. I am trying to get to a 1000 subs so I can do some live streaming projects in the future.

Thanks regards Chris

Today I am changing the gear oil in the differential using a yellow metal friendly EP80-90 gear oil. Perhaps this video should be considered as a how Not to do it.

Thanks for the nice comments.

Regards Chris

I was told they contain brass or Bronze - Think it was on this forum, but never had one in bits etc.
