North American P-51C Mustang - Part 1 - Kermie Cam

You Are There! We've posted a couple of Kermie Cam videos with planes from the early days of flight, thought it would be nice to jump ahead in time and fly something from the WWII period. Step into the cockpit of a P-51C Mustang with me and go over the pre-flight check list. Get a first hand glimpse of what it is like to sit at the controls of this magnificent machine, and prepare to fly it. In parts one and two, you'll see my pre-flight preparation. Then in part three, we'll take to the skies. - Kermit Weeks (20120928) Watch the Kermie Cam of the P-51D model Mustang... https://youtu.be/jzKFkYLHq3Q Subscribe with link above for notification of future Kermit Weeks videos.

7 Things You Shouldn't Do In an Automatic Transmission Car

Do you drive a car with an automatic transmission? 🚕 The interface of automatic vehicles is often simpler, and new drivers don't have to struggle with a seemingly unruly stick shift and clutch. But there are still some ways you can mess up your transmission. Here are 7 of the most dangerous mistakes you can make when driving an automatic! 📣 TIMESTAMPS: Don't shift from "drive" to "reverse" before your car stops moving 1:06 Never put your car in "park" before it stops completely 1:55 Don't put it in "neutral" at stop lights 2:56 Don't coast in "neutral" 3:53 Never “launch” your car from a standstill 4:44 Avoid keeping the gas tank on low 5:48 Do not let water get in the transmission 6:31 #automatictransmission #drivinghacks #drivingtips Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - If your brakes wear down, replacing them will cost you around $200. But by constantly shifting from "drive" to "reverse" while the car’s still rolling, get ready for damage that can run you at least $2,500. - When you throw it in “park,” a pin locks the transmission output shaft, which connects it to the wheels of your car. But if the car’s still rolling when you do this, either the locking pin or the output shaft may break or become eroded. - It's better to keep your car in "drive" than to switch it to "neutral" when stopped at a light. First of all, when your car’s in "neutral," you don't have as much control over it. So if you need to make some emergency maneuver, you may not be able to execute it in time. - Cars with automatic engines are designed in such a way that they save fuel even if the gear is in "drive." They simply cut the fuel supply when you're going downhill. - Plenty of drivers launch their cars all the time. This causes serious harm to the bands and clutches of the automatic transmission. When you shift, they use friction to move definite parts. - Ignoring the low fuel light may eventually cost you much more than just filling your tank up, especially if your car has an automatic transmission. - If water gets into the transmission, you're in big trouble. Even the smallest amount of water, just an ounce, can wreak havoc on your car’s transmission to the point that it needs replaced.

Rescuing a 1977 Peterbilt 359 From Its Grave - First Time On the Road in 18 Years

EDIT: I need to clear a few things up for all the naysayers, so PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION. We've had a lot of "super truckers" in the comment section who felt the need to criticize us basically for keeping the deceased truck owner's memory alive, and who criticized the truck that was once his livelihood. That seems rather insulting to both him and his widow. Let's set some things straight, for those of you who think we don't know what we were doing when we acquired this truck: 1. This isn't our first rodeo buying a used truck that's been sitting. We knew what we were getting ourselves into. My buddy Ryan ("Bulldog Chaser") bought this truck cheap knowing he was in for a potential project, and isn't afraid to dump some money into it if he has to. Did you really think we were getting a truck in PERFECT condition after sitting for so many years? Come on now.... 2. Out of respect for Ryan and the lady he purchased the truck from, we will not tell how much he paid for the truck. He and the owner's widow agreed on a price, and both were happy with the deal. 3. We were NOT just dumping starting fluid into the air intake. It only took a couple quick shots of starting fluid before she cranked up. It might look like he was spraying the whole can while it was cranking, but that was NOT the case. He was just holding the can up to the breather in case he needed to spray more in (which he didn't have to). Also, we let it warm up a good 20 minutes before hitting the throttle. You must have missed the jump cuts in the video if you think we were revving it cold. 4. We were NOT worried about a potential runaway when the engine first started. That's a Detroit thing...still possible, but FAR less likely to happen on a Cummins. We had plenty of rags, wood blocks, fire extinguishers, etc. in case the engine WERE to run away. 5. YES, OBVIOUSLY the truck needs a good going-over and a good servicing. Once we get some half-decent weather and get some space freed up in the shop, the truck will get a good thorough cleaning, all the fluids changed, new tires all around, and any other issues will be fixed. 6. Diesel fuel does NOT go "stale" like gasoline does. We were extremely lucky that the old fuel in the tanks was still clean and stable, and had no algae in it. So we weren't afraid to run the truck home on the old fuel - it wasn't going to hurt anything. There are plenty of other YouTube videos of trucks starting and running on diesel fuel much older than what this truck had in it. See for yourself. 7. OBVIOUSLY this truck wasn't suitable to run on the highway. That's not what we were doing with it; we just ran it on back roads that were close to home so we could tow the truck back home if something happened to it. We weren't running it hard either, just babying it to "wake it up". Do you really think we would run it on the highway far from home with worn-out drive tires? 8. We had the original plates, title, bill of sale, and two "blocker" trucks running behind this truck for the short 13-mile drive home. Plus we were only driving it on the backroads. So there wouldn't have been any issues if the police or DOT were to stop us. 9. NO, we are NOT restoring this truck, it has way too much character and we plan to keep running it like its deceased owner would have wanted. We may touch up some of the faded areas of the paint, but the truck will NOT be getting a full restore...it's just too nice for that. It WILL be thoroughly cleaned up inside and out. 10. YES, this is an old truck, with an old mechanical diesel engine. Guess what? THEY SMOKE! All old mechanical engines smoke at least a little bit. That's just the nature of the beast! I hate to say it, but the EPA outlawed these old engines for that reason! For those of you who think we're killing the environment, I hope you're happy with the modern DPF, DEF, EGR "boat anchor" engines that cause nothing but expensive downtime and headaches for drivers and mechanics these days. I'd like to see one of those new, "clean-running" diesel engines still running as good as this one in 40 years. 11. STOP acting like I hate Cummins because of my few sarcastic comments. I was raised around CAT engines all my life and they are my preference, but I have NOTHING against these old Cummins engines, especially the Big Cam 400. I just like to bust Ryan's chops with CAT vs. Cummins comments every once in a while. It's an inside joke we have going on. Trust me, if CAT and Cummins didn't build good engines, they wouldn't be so popular after all this time, and their old engines wouldn't still be running after 40 years like this one. 12. YES, his shifting was a little bit rough. He hadn't driven a 13-speed in a while, and it didn't help that someone cut a few of the air lines going to the splitter valve so it was trying to act like a 10-speed instead of a 13. Don't act like you've never scratched a gear once or twice in all your years of driving...nobody is perfect.
