Found this old Galion 503 motor grader for sale on Marketplace so me and a buddy went and picked it up. Its a little rough in some spots but I think its going to be an excellent machine for maintaining my super long driveway and maybe worth taking out to do some jobs with!

Tightens my nuts every time I see someone standing in the cable recoil area, should it break. Have a look at some of the videos where that has happened, you wouldn't do it again.

Change all the oils. If there's water in the trans, there's likely water in the tandems as well. And possibly the hydraulic. And 10 years is a bit longer than most oil's shelf life. Also check the front hub bearings and circle drive case. Good engine, and everything (except the electrical) seems to work fine. Just gonna take some money to fix it up.

Might not be possessed, but certainly seems to have a mind of its own 😳 I'm impressed that it started as easy as it did. Just a couple $1,000 more in parts and you will have an almost new old grader. That is the thing that drives me nuts, I have a very old loader and every time I use it, I end up fixing another thing, it's enough to drive you nuts 😵‍💫

A tip on your GoPro. When you have the camera mounted, turn off Hypersmooth. It tries to smooth out movements and you get that rocking motion you can see when you are working at the bench as it tries to smooth your hand movement. To fix, make a preset mode with Hypersmooth tuned off and choose 'Mounted' as a name for it, and make sure to use 'Mounted' any time the camera is not hand-held.

about the camera issue, i think its the memory cards you use, cause some of them (cheaper ones) dont have enough speed for the camera and just give you problems and it may help to replace the sd-cards if they were used very frequently as they degrade over time

After many years of experience with stuff like this before taking the engine out pull the clutch inspection cover . This will give you access to the pressure plate bolts you can then back them off enough to free the plate and disk . If needed you can hook your excavator bucket to the rear and with it in gear rock it back and forth .

I don't care what you think about the environment or environmentalists, these are the people that are helping reduce carbon emissions. More pollution goes into to making these new efficient vehicles than the actual use of it! If more people would just start saving stuff like this we'd probably be better off, not that I really see eye to eye with most environmentalist anyway.

Why the hell you let it idle for so long without oil in gearbox? It spins even if you aren't in gear. If it was sitting so long full of water, there was no oil film on almost everything. I guess she got some betting just for that.

Hi Matt, enjoyed this video. My Dad always told me to consider every gun loaded and every machine capable of killing you. I know you are probably getting sick of hearing that but please be careful as I like your content and would like to see alot more of it. All advice is in friendliness with your longevity in mind. Being young means you have the curiosity to jump from one thing to another so dont curb your enthusiasm, life is mean't to be lived

Well, birthdays are merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and how little we've grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake, we know it's not to be, that for the rest of our sad, wretched pathetic lives, this is who we are to the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably; happy birthday? No such thing.

I, as one, have worked on a lot of different engine-transmissions, right below the clutch should be a cover plate. If you take that off and get at the clutch you can drive shims in between the clutch and pressure plate, I have used real slim screwdrivers all the way around once when my 1943 powerwagon sat for a couple of years one time. It didn't seem to hurt the clutch plate any at all. Michael said that bye for now my friend.
