Ack's New Driveshaft re-assembly video!

Now that I have better production values available to me (and YouTube.com to store all the stuff - no bandwidth hassles with my ISP!), Here is the new and improved version of that video classic: Driveshaft Reassembly.



Your comments are appreciated!

Finally, Ack's Garage turned out to be too big of a PITA production.

Replacing it will be a series of videos like the Driveshaft re-assembly video. Presently in production are Transfer Case Shifter Sheet Replacement and Locking Hub Rebuilding. On the back burner are BumpSteer Explained, 410 Backing Plate Installation and GM Alternator Installation.

Anyone got ideas on other topics??

Acks' Garage, while fun, got to be a lot of work for the rewards of it all.

I have taken up a second job to make ends meet so I don't have time anymore to set up and do telephone interviews, edit them for time, build the rest of the segments and put it all online.

So the short answer is, sadly, no.

I suppose if I could sell advertising on it like I had hoped, I would be able to produce more episodes. I had one advertiser on the line, but they suddenly developed cold feet (more like "fell off the face of the earth..."). If you know of any vendors who would like some cheap advertising targeted EXACTLY at their key customer base - not some hit-or-miss keyword-based banner advertising - PM me their name and phone number and I'll contact them ASAP.

That's a great vid, probably the reason my front shaft is so messed up. Wish I had some more ideas to offer up, but all the stuff I need to work on and don't know exactly how to do is because I'm a noob.

Thanks Ack - I try not to ask till I feel like I've done some searching first.

BUT, soon as I typed that previous post I saw someone else starting a new thread for something I would've suggested for a vid, so here's my vid suggestions for what they're worth:

-body trimming (either minor or major hackage...or both)
-1.6L swap 8 or 16V
-Timing belt change
-Replace leaky dist. oil seal
-Sloppy tranny fix
-t-case gear install (I'll volunteer mine as a donor )
-easiest possible birf replacement - any shortcuts for the field?
-carb rebuild and/or setting fuel mixture
-wiring in a winch and/or lights
-cam install
-replacing and properly adjusting clutch cable
-propane install
-MySide install
-steering box adjustment
-a vid where you just point out what everything you can think of under the hood

A lot of those are too basic and covered elsewhere, but that's FWIW

suggestions for videos:

FGZ:

You have several great ideas for videos!

I especially like:

Leaky distributor oil seal replacment
Clutch cable replacement and adjustment
Steering box adjustment
Field replacement of Birfield Axles - I know a "secret" method for field removing Birfields... even with cups!

Some of the others might be a bit too complicated to put to video in a short form video like Driveshaft Reassembly but could be part of a product installation video.

I would especially like to contract with ZOR, GotPropane and other vendors to create installation videos for their products! I think that a MyFI and a MySide video - both Internet and DVD - would be great selling tools and after-sales product support! Perhaps a bit of bartering could be done!

If there's bartering to be done, I'd like propane please...jk.

Glad some of those might be promising. I just did the steering box adjustment tonight, and it's pretty stinkin simple if I did it right. If there's any tricks to getting the oil fill cap off and on in order to top of the gearbox I'm all ears. I added oil, I think...if I was removing the right dohicky.
