Title: Good Mechanical Videos
Post by: Debo on October 21, 2013, 03:59:57 AM
Hi guys,

I was doing a little YouTube surfing last night and found this set of videos and thought they might be helpful. I've done my share of engine work over the years, but it always helps me to see how someone else does it, and apparently this is some kind of trade school or something. Anyway, good stuff.

I'm not responsible for any errors or content in the videos, so if you watch these, do something, and it screws up - it ain't my fault. I'm submitting these for educational purposes only.

Thats good stuff.  I have found others that are old videos but gave me a perfectly clear understanding of how parts of my bus work -


Here is a video about the Governor - Diesel Engine Governors (1942) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OiHb2L8ei8E#)

Here is a video that clearly explains how a differential works - Around The Corner (1937) How Differential Steering Works (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYAw79386WI#)

I enjoyed both of these videos very much.  And learned a lot.

Any videos on how to run a rack?

Ah. Cool. Thanks Sean for those. Good information. Here's a link to a video posted on YouTube by Scott Crosby (who posts mostly on the other board I think) regarding running the rack. Since I don't know the first thing about this procedure I can't speak to its content, but it certainly is a good place to start for educational purposes.
