As many of you have suggested, I have created a Patreon page where you can support the show directly: www.patreon.com/WorkshopDiaries
Back to a bit of a wrestling with John’s ‘garden-find’ Range Rover; having sprayed fuel all over the workshop floor I now need to work out exactly where it is leaking from and whether the fuel lines can be repaired or if they’ll need to be replaced…
Also, part three of the World’s Fastest Electric Ice Cream Van project; having removed the diesel engine, chosen the electric motor and 3D scanned the mating faces I now need to work out how to connect the gearbox and motor shafts together so in this episode I explore the various components and how they could go together…
Thanks to my production pixies for capturing the magic and stringing it all together in a plausible fashion.
Big thanks to my brand partners who are supporting the channel; to find out more about them, please go to our website: www.workshopdiaries.com

  • Most of the comments relating to the ads are misdirected at Ed. The issue as far as I can tell are the quality of the ads, which are basically scams (in my case anyway, as I don't have targeted ads) and that's on NOworld. Ed has every right to have ads on these brilliant videos, and I have no issue with that.

  • Ed please stop using a Co2 fire extinguisher to extinguish a liquid fuel fire! It’s extremely dangerous to use Co2 on a petrol fire as it blows it all over the place! Co2 extinguishers are mainly for electrical fires. For Fuel fires you should use a powder or foam extinguisher...... I appreciate foam and powder will make a right mess so you’ll be better off in future demos to use a fire blanket instead of Co2. Keep up the great work with the channel, love watching!

  • Hi Edd! Greetings from The Netherlands. I don't do Facebook and such so I'll put my five cents in here. The bit about the icecream van is extremely relevant to me since I am working on a similar solution. I am using the drivetrian of a Moto Guzzi V35 on my electric motorcycle project since I believe that having a gearbox is still relevant for the longevity and economy of electric vehicles, including motorcycles. What I have learned from your video: I will check out tomorrow if the startermotor ring is also a seperate part on my clutch bed. Probably not but it would indeed be a good way to remove a bit of fat without having to revert to an outside lathing service. I am very much looking forward to seeing how you connect the clutch to the electric motor. Keep them coming. I love it!

  • Always wanted to go and get a picture taken outside the grease junkie garage when I was younger ! Fast forward a few years later I could drive, became an apprentice mechanic, done my time and became a MOT tester too and now starting up my own business in the trade, but I got so caught up in life I never made the trip down from Scotland to just see it ! Still annoys me to this day 😂 weird how you can lose the passion of working in this industry as it changes and evolves but sitting down and watching and old ep of wheeler dealers when Edds hair wasn’t so grey 😂 can just spark it all back up again. They say never meet your hero’s but I wish this was the one I did. Love this new content keep it coming Edd 👍🏼

  • Long time supporter Edd but some constructive criticism if I may. The background music is well... woeful. So downbeat and frankly depressing. You need something a bit more spritely ... PLEASE! The content is interesting although I think the pace of what you are doing is a bit too slow and deliberate - detail is good but the fuel burn? Didn't really add any value - put two motors on both fuels on a dyno to get a real world test. I actually like long content as I watch it while doing gym and its great multitasking viewing, but 30 minutes on removing some fuel lines is a bit tedious - I wanted to get up and help you get a move on. Hit the high notes, snags and how you solved issues in detail. I think you could have done the full removal and new fit in this one episode quite easily. Anyhow - its not quite the content I am used to from you so I guess that's why I perhaps a little disappointed. Bu for heaven sake lose that background music!

  • one aspect of this work I just don't understand: Why would you not give the entire vehicle a thorough pressure wash top and bottom before starting work on it? Working on a slimy/muddy/grotty vehicle is miserable. The work would be significantly easier if there wasn't a constant battle with mud/grot/dirt everywhere.

  • Love the content as always Edd - it’s great to have you back. Just one suggestion on Patreon, you may want to make a more obvious difference between the levels, perhaps even stretching out the cost spectrum a bit. For instance, at x level you get sent a sticker, at a higher one after a few months, a t-shirt etc. Just by way of example, one of my favourite couples have their Grizzly ‘n Bear overlanding channel and a Patreon at www.patreon.com/GrizzlyNbear. Their tiers go from $3 to $20, with different things coming at each level. We even got a lovely Christmas car from Taiwan! Anyway, they have plenty of people supporting them at the higher level. Just a thought. All the very best

  • Hello Edd I have a Ford ranger 4x4 C.C. diesel 3.0 Turbo, it has the problem in the front axle. I´ve change the tires in the four wheels, and front axle began to waste more tire from inside than from external rubber, I take it to a person to align by computer, to arrange the proper alignment and camber, time later I realize that the problem persists, and I don´t know how to fix it. I ruin a pair of new tires, need to fix it. An other thing is happening is the directional light doesn´t work or it makes one blink, but the emergency lights blinks normaly. Do you know what can it be? Thank you Hernán Sánchez Buenos Aires ARGENTINA

  • 08:08 Maybe some reengineering of the fuel line routes to avoid tight spots? (Not sure of the budget constraints, but I assume this will be driven.) Maybe a inline filter to have a convenient breakpoint in the fuel lines if Rerouting would be inconvenient and/or unacceptable @ Inspection? Just thinking of next time the Vehicles fuel lines needs to be serviced.

  • I had a 1969 Land Rover years ago. It was, without a doubt, one of the worst designed vehicles I have ever seen. Little things like having to remove the hood, grill and left front fender (Left hand drive for North America) to access the clutch and brake master cylinders. Mine was outfitted with an auxiliary fuel tank which of course leaked. To remove the tank and repair it you had to remove some of the rear suspension to get it out. It used to snap the short axle in the rear differential with alarming regularity and more than once had to head for home with front wheel drive only, and had a heater which would equal a candle with a hamster on a tread mill to power the fan which could barely defrost the windshield let alone actually keep you warm (Totally inadequate for Canadian winters) Flat out would do about 55 MPH with it's anemic four cylinder gas engine and the transmission and transfer case limited any conversation with the volume of it's howls. There was very little thought given to maintenance and the cons handily exceeded the pros. I traded it off after two years.
