Wheel Bearing Replacement with Basic Hand Tools
Front wheel bearing replacement on a 2002 Buick LeSabre with basic hand
tools. Please note, this vehicle has the bearing built into the hub. Some
vehicles may have a taper rolling bearing (usually older vehicles have this
setup) or some vehicles may need the bearing to be pressed out of the hub.
In this case, the hub & bearing is all one unit. Don't forget to wear

Wheel standing 1970 AMX - Eliminations and sparks flying
Round 1 of eliminations. Car was launched at a low 6200 RPM. Still a 1.38
60' time. Nothing more consistant than Advanced Clutches (see the web
site). Veered off to the left too much. Let off the gas for the 1st time
ever and came down with a big thunk. Shut the engine off just to make sure
no oil pan damage (there was none). Sparks are crossmember hitting
concrete. Slight bevel on leading edge of oil pan. If you ever want a
killer engine, go to MACH Development (see their web page). NHRA Best
Appearing @ 2006 Pacific SportsNationals (Fontana, CA). Now going to the
shop for a back-half and 4-link to tame it down some. Hope you enjoyed the

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
A machine consists of a power source and a power transmission system, which
provides controlled application of the power. Merriam-Webster defines
transmission as: an assembly of parts including the speed-changing gears
and the propeller shaft by which the power is transmitted from an engine to
a live axle. Often transmission refers simply to the gearbox that uses
gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a
rotating power source to another device...
Manual transmission come in two basic types:
- a simple but rugged sliding-mesh or unsynchronized / non-synchronous
system, where straight-cut spur gear sets are spinning freely, and must be
synchronized by the operator matching engine revs to road speed, to avoid
noisy and damaging "gear clash",
- and the now common constant-mesh gearboxes which can include
non-synchronised, or synchronized / synchromesh systems, where typically
diagonal cut helical (or sometimes either straight-cut, or double-helical)
gear sets are constantly "meshed" together, and a dog clutch is used for
changing gears. On synchromesh boxes, friction cones or "synchro-rings" are
used in addition to the dog clutch to closely match the rotational speeds
of the two sides of the (declutched) transmission before making a full
How Differential Gear works must see 100%
This is NOT the full video, cuz the full video has 4 useless minutes.. and
i was looking around in all the internet to understand how it works, and i
opened that video a lot of times , and i closed it , cuz i thought that it
does not talk about the differential, cuz it talks about it after 4 min, so
i make this useful CUT.. the original one in titled ---How Differential
Gear works (BEST Tutorial)---
